When to return a product?

You are entitled to a refund, replacement or credit from Salty Seahorse when an item purchased fails to meet one of the consumer guarantees as per the Australian Consumer Law (ACL), i.e. the product:

  • Is faulty or of unacceptable quality
  • Does not match the description or sample
  • Is unfit for the intended purpose (i.e. does not do what it is meant to do)
  • Is not delivered in a reasonable time frame
  • And proof or purchase must be provided (proof of purchase details are outlined above)

This also includes non-compliance with any applicable warranties or guarantees as set out by the manufacturer.

Proof of purchase is required for all returns, which can be in the form of your receipt/tax invoice, a debit/credit card statement, member’s club transaction history or online purchase transaction history.

Salty Seahorse will also, as an act of good will, accept return items if you have changed your mind. In this instance, the product must:

  • Be returned within 28 days of purchase
  • Be in a re-saleable condition (original condition)

The unwanted product must be returned to us via post. Salty Seahorse treats all ‘change of mind’ transactions as a refund; you are then able to place another order in your own time for a replacement product from our online store.

Who pays for the return of my purchase?

Salty Seahorse will cover any associated delivery charges for the return of any products which fail to meet the consumer guarantees as per the Australian Consumer Law (see ‘When to return a product’ above), provided they are returned to us using the recommended shipping method (as discussed with a Salty Seahorse customer service team member). Any return delivery charges will be added to your refund amount once processed. We will also refund the cost of the original delivery and pay for the delivery of any replacement item.

For any ‘change of mind’ returns, it is your responsibility to cover all delivery charges incurred. A copy of your tax invoice (or relevant proof of purchase) is to be included in the delivery (please keep the original for your own reference), and the refund will be processed using your original method of payment.

Please ensure your item is packed securely to protect it from any damage in transit and be sure to retain your shipping information for tracking purposes, to ensure the package arrives safely at our warehouse. Salty Seahorse cannot be responsible for any items damaged or lost during return transit.
