ORDER DISPATCH 

COVID 19 UPDATE

Business as usual!  We will continue to dispatch your orders on a daily basis.  Note that due to high demand for our toys, games and puzzles we are working around the clock to ensure same dispatch dispatch for orders in by 2pm.  We still aim to achieve same day dispatch but please be patient with us as we manage the unseasonally high demand in orders, some delays may occur.  We will contact you if there will be a significant delay with your order.

To protect both our staff, delivery teams and you, our wonderful customers, we have introduced new hygiene measures at both our Noosa store and Sunshine Coast warehouse .  We also recommend contactless delivery i.e. no signature on delivery, it is important that our posties and courier teams can leave your parcels at the door without customer contact.  Please ensure you leave clear delivery instructions at the checkout if you have a preferred location for the courier or postie to leave your parcel.  We need them now more than ever so protecting our delivery partners is important to all of us!

Stay safe, stay healthy! 

Jane & The Team

All orders are dispatched promptly from our warehouse, however we have no control over delays once the items leave our warehouse and are in transit with delivery partners. Delivery times are estimates only, we recommend you allow additional transit time or utilise express shipping during peak periods or if you require an item by a specific date.

We are shipping your orders daily!  Dispatches are closed off at 2pm AEST Monday-Friday, orders submitted after that time will be dispatched the following business day. (Excludes Rainbow Loom orders which close off daily at 10am AEST)  NOTE if your order is submitted after our cut-off times and you would like it dispatched the same day please contact us on 0456 239 966 with your name and order number and we will do our best to accommodate your request.  Upon dispatch of your order you will be emailed a dispatch notice with a consignment number for tracking your order online via the Australia Post or Sendle website. 

DELIVERY TIMES

Delivery times will vary depending on your location, our orders are dispatched daily from Noosa postcode 4567, to obtain an estimated delivery time to your location visit the Australia Post website here Australia Post Delivery Times and enter our postcode 4567 and yours.  We use both courier services and Australia Post for our deliveries and choose the fastest delivery service for your location.  Remember delivery times are only an estimate so if you require your order by a specific date allow an additional 2 business days to be safe or utilise the express shipping option.   

Shipping Australia Wide - Parcel Tracking & Delivery Times
We currently use Australia Post, Interparcel and Sendle for all shipping which means our customers have the advantage of next business day delivery for express orders within the 1 day express network and the fastest possible delivery times for standard delivery. Large orders and bulky items over 5kg and deliveries to remote areas may incurr an additional shipping charge, we will contact you if your order is over the 5kg limit and has additional shipping charges. 

Though we guarantee to dispatch your order in a timely manner from our warehouse we cannot guarantee delivery times, once the parcel is out of our hands we rely on our carriers to deliver your parcel within their delivery guidelines.  It should be noted that though the delivery times are usually very accurate they are not 100% guaranteed and unforseen delays can happen, we recommend you allow additional time for your parcel to arrive in the event of any unforseen delays.  This is especially important during peak periods around Christmas time.  

All our parcels are sent with Authority to Leave at your home.  If you DO NOT have a secure location for your parcel to be left unattended by the courier please select the Signature On Delivery option at the checkout to ensure your items are not left unattended.  NOTE parcels delivered Authority To Leave are NOT covered by insurance as we cannot guarantee the security of parcels delivered without a signature, shipping insurance is available and recommended for parcels that are left unattended at your address, see shipping insurance information below.

If your address can only receive items via Australia Post or you have a specific location you would like the parcel to be left please ensure you specify this in the Delivery Instructions box at the checkout. 

FREE SHIPPING on Standard Shipping in Australia is available on orders over AU $150.00 **Excludes deliveries to remote areas and some large boxed items or orders over 5KG.  We will contact you with a shipping price on orders over AU $150.00 that contain excluded items.

ORDER TRACKING 

To track your order enter the order details on our order tracking page here.  We recommend you follow your parcel tracking closely and contact us if you have any concerns about your parcel if it is taking longer than expected.  If you do not receive your parcel within a reasonable delivery time or have any problem tracking your order please contact us on info@rainbowfun.com.au and let us know, we will launch a delivery investigation with our carrier on your behalf.

PARCEL RETURNS

Parcel returns due to incorrect or insufficient delivery information may incur additional shipping fees for us to resend the parcel, note these items may also incur a Return To Sender fee which is charged by our carrier to return the parcel to us.  To avoid parcel returns please ensure you supply us with the correct delivery information when you place your order to ensure we can deliver your parcels in a timely and efficient manner.  Use the Delivery Instructions box at the checkout to specify a safe location to leave your parcel or choose Signature On Delivery if you do not wish your parcel to be left unattended.  Delivery fees are NOT refunded on parcels returned due to insufficient or incorrect addresses.  Note that parcel returns may also take longer than regular delivery times.

Can I get Shipping Insurance for my purchase? RECOMMENDED
We recommend you protect your items with shipping insurance, especially if you have not selected Signature On Delivery.  You may not file a claim for lost items if you have not opted for Signature on Delivery and do not have shipment insurance with your order.  Once an order leaves our warehouse and is in the hands of a third party shipping provider we supply tracking information for you to keep informed about the location of your items.  For Australian & New Zealand customers see full details on shipping insurance for your order here Shipping Insurance option.

For international orders (except New Zealand) we do not offer shipping insurance, we recommend you take out your own separate shipping insurance or request a quotation from us.
