We want you to be completely satisfied with every item that you purchase from saltyseahorse.com.au and so we understand that there may be times when you will need to return a product that you have purchased from us.

We aim to make this process as easy and hassle-free as possible and our returns policy has been constructed to comply with the relevant consumer rights and retailer obligations as set out under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL).

When to return a product?
