The buyer agrees to pay the purchase price specified on the website at the time of their purchase.
ACA will forward order enquiry emails from customers directly to you. These emails must be responded to within 24 hours.

Adding tracking details to the order is mandatory if the courier has provided tracking details.
Cancellation Of Orders
You, the Seller, may cancel an order that has already been accepted if you suspect that the buyer is acting fraudulently (such as using a credit card without proper authorisation).
It is accepted that while you, the Seller, will endeavour to avoid pricing and other errors, sometimes errors do occur from time to time and you may also cancel an order in such circumstances.
Unexpected supply issues or unexpected demand may sometimes result in a product being unavailable. If there is a delay in shipping the buyer’s order, you will contact the buyer by email as soon as possible to advise the reason for the delay.
The buyer may also cancel an order if you are in breach of these terms.
Refunds are based on the individual policies and processes of the individual seller. The buyer will likely contact ACA should they wish to discuss a refund, ACA will forward the email to the seller. All refunds and repairs are granted on the basis of Australian Consumer Law. Refunds are not granted due to change of mind.
Sellers must have a clear refund policy that is published in their shop front under “policies”. The refund policy must comply with ACCC.
Sellers must provide their BSB and Account details in order to be paid.
Once the buyer makes a purchase, the commission (if any) and processing fees, will be automatically deducted from the sale price, the remaining funds will be processed and deposited directly into the seller's bank account at the end of each month in one transaction.
Processing fees are deducted from the seller’s sales. ACA will deduct a flat rate processing fee of 3.5% on all transactions.
Payouts will be carried out on the last working day of the month. Any sales that come through between the payout and the end of the month will roll over to the following month's payout.
Payouts will not be processed for unfulfilled orders. Any orders that are unfulfilled when ACA process the payments will roll over onto next month's payout.
