Australian Shipping

Orders Over $100 qualify for FREE shipping.  Please note that if discounts, coupons or other offers reduce the value of the order to below $99, free shipping does not apply.

Orders Under $100 are charged at a flat rate of $9.50 for all other orders under 3kg. Express shipping is available for $15.50 for orders under 3kg or $17.50 for orders over 3kg. Unfortunately, we cannot offer free shipping on Express Deliveries.

For the security and tracking of your parcel, we mark all shipments as requiring a "Signature on Delivery". If you would like to change this to "Authority to Leave", you will need to access the Australia Post MyPost website and update your preferences.

International Shipping is currently not available, however, we are working to set up international shipping!

Shipping charges are based upon the value, weight, volume and destination of your order. Once your order is in the shopping cart you can select your destination country to see the shipping options available.

Please note: International shipping is not included in our free shipping offer.

Orders shipped outside of Australia may be subjected to taxes, customs duties and other fees by the destination country. The recipient is responsible for these fees. If the purchaser refuses a shipment, they are responsible for any import fees incurred, cost of returning the shipment and the original shipping charges. This amount will be deducted from the merchandise refund plus a 5% restocking fee.

Alkimista is not responsible for the return of shipments or reimbursement of lost packages or damaged products. Items sent via Australia Post are not automatically covered for loss or damage. However, Extra Cover is available for items valued up to AU$5,000 (this may vary for some countries). It covers against loss, theft or damage of your parcel while being shipped by Australia Post. This is available as an option during the check out process.

Possible Delays

All shipments may encounter delays due to high volume or bad weather that extends beyond the expected delivery time frame provided by the carrier. International shipments are subject to customs procedures leaving Australia and arriving in the destination country which may cause further delays. While these delays are uncommon, they are a reality of shipping logistics especially with international shipping. Please be advised that tracking scans may no longer update once a shipment has left Australia.

Cancellations

You may email our customer care team within 1 hour of placing your order during business hours to request a cancellation. Once we have begun to prepare an order, it is not possible to cancel. Refunds for cancellations are applied once we provide confirmation.
