Terms of Service
TERMS OF SERVICE
www.merrypackets.com is a website operated by Merry Packets Pty Limited (ABN : 73 479 755 339) of 5/3 Alexandra Avenue, Westmead, NSW - 2145.
This website is operated by Merry Packets. Throughout the site, the terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to 'Merry Packets'. 'Merry Packets' offers this website, including all information, tools and services available from this site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies and notices stated here.
By visiting our site and/ or purchasing something from us, you engage in our “Service” and agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”, “Terms”), including those additional terms and conditions and policies referenced herein and/or available by hyperlink. These Terms of Service apply to all users of the site, including without limitation users who are browsers, vendors, customers, merchants, and/ or contributors of content.
Please read these Terms of Service carefully before accessing or using our website. By accessing or using any part of the site, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access the website or use any services. If these Terms of Service are considered an offer, acceptance is expressly limited to these Terms of Service.
Any new features or tools which are added to the current store shall also be subject to the Terms of Service. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time on this page. We reserve the right to update, change or replace any part of these Terms of Service by posting updates and/or changes to our website. It is your responsibility to check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of or access to the website following the posting of any changes constitutes acceptance of those changes.
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Our website includes Products available for purchase from various sellers (“Sellers”). If you place an order for a Product on our website (a “Product”), you are placing any order with the Seller of the Product, and not us. We make the Products available for purchase (including by taking orders and collecting payment) as the agent of the Seller, and not on our own behalf.
When you place an order to purchase a Product via this Website, you are making an offer directly to the Seller. No order shall be deemed to be accepted by the Seller until we (acting as the agent of the Seller) issue an email acknowledgement of order. The contract between you and a Seller will relate only to those goods and/or services notified in the email acknowledgement of order.
If a Seller accepts your order for the purchase of a Product, then an agreement is formed between you and the Seller and you have rights directly and only against the Seller, and not us. We are not a party to that agreement.
If a Seller accepts your order for the purchase of a Product, then the following terms apply to the agreement with the Seller relating to that purchase.
(a) You agree to pay the purchase price specified on the website at the time that you place your order for the purchase of a Product, and any applicable shipping and insurance charges based on the shipping options selected by you. All amounts are stated in Australian dollars. All purchase prices include Australian GST (where applicable). Shipping and any insurance charges will be separately shown.
(b) If the goods are being shipped to an address that is not in the same state or country as the Seller, you or the addressee will be responsible for paying any other sales, use, goods and services, value added, customs, excise or similar taxes or charges (“Other Taxes”) imposed by any applicable government agency in the addressee state or country. The Seller is unable to advise you on the amount of any Other Taxes, and you should contact the taxing authorities of the state or country that the Products are to be shipped to if you are unsure whether any Other Taxes will apply.
(c) You must pay for the Product online by credit card (we accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express), PayPal or zipPay. Your payment will be processed upon receipt of your order. The credit cards that are accepted from time to time will be described on the website. A surcharge may apply for the use of certain credit cards, and where this is the case this will also be described on the website.
2. CANCELLATION OF ORDERS
(a) The Seller may cancel an order that it has already accepted if the Seller suspects that you are acting fraudulently (such as using a credit card without proper authorisation) or in breach of these terms.
(b) While the Seller endeavours to avoid pricing and other errors, inadvertent errors do occur from time to time and the Seller may also cancel an order that it has accepted in such circumstances.
(c) Unforeseen supply problems or unexpected demand may occasionally result in a Product being unavailable. If there is a delay in shipping your order the Seller will contact you by email as soon as possible to advise you of the reason for the delay. If this occurs, you may cancel your order at any time prior to when the Seller ships the Product to you.
(d) You may also cancel an order if the Seller is in breach of these terms.
(a) The Seller will normally ship the Product within 2 Business Days of Seller’s receipt of your order, unless otherwise noted in the Product description. Any delivery times displayed on the website are estimates only, based on the information provided to the Seller by its shipping company.
(b) The Seller will deliver the Product to the place of delivery you specify when making your order. Title to and risk in the Product will pass to you upon delivery of the Product to this place of delivery.
You can return an item, for any reason, within 28 days of receipt.*
If the item you wish to return is faulty, we will require either photo proof of the faulty item or provide you with a stamped, self-addressed post pack in which to return it to the appropriate seller. You will then be offered a replacement or repair of the faulty item or a full refund or store credit, whichever you prefer. Any refunds will be transferred back to the original payment method, eg. your credit card, PayPal account or store credit.
If you change your mind on a purchased item, you will be given a store credit to the same value once the item has been received by the appropriate seller, and any shipping costs incurred will not be refunded. Please ensure you use a trackable or signed-for delivery service such as registered post, as we cannot credit your account until the item has been received.
Please note: Store credits are valid for 1 year from the date of issue, unless specified otherwise.
Our sellers don't accept exchanges.
*Items that cannot be refunded for change of mind include: TFGS vouchers (please refer to clause 5), personalised products, made-to-order furniture, underwear, earrings for pierced ears and food or makeup items that have been used or opened. All items being returned must be dispatched/shipped within 10 days of the return being approved, and must be in original condition and packaging and not affected by being used in an abnormal way, or reduced in value by delay on your part. If these requirements are not met, the seller reserves the right to deny a return.
If for any reason a product you have ordered is not available or out of stock, we will also refund you via PayPal or offer you a store credit to the same value, and in this case any shipping costs will be refunded.
Please note: We are unable to return or exchange an item that is not being returned or exchanged by the original purchaser.
5. GIFT VOUCHERS
(a) Gift Vouchers can be redeemed at checkout. The value of a Gift Voucher will be issued as credit in your account.
(b) Gift Vouchers are valid for 1 year and cannot be returned or exchanged for cash.
(c) All returned items that were paid for with a Gift Voucher will be refunded as a store credit for you to use against a future purchase.
(d) If you return an item paid for by both a Gift Voucher and credit card or PayPal, you will be refunded on your credit card/PayPal up to the amount of your initial credit card/PayPal payment, and the remaining amount will be refunded as store credit.
(e) All Gift Vouchers are in Australian dollars.
6. TFGS REWARDS
(a) We may credit your 'Merry Packets' (MP) account with a $ AU amount (“Reward Credit”) calculated by reference to a full-price purchase you have made on this Website. Such credit will only be available for a limited period and if not used prior to its expiry date it will be removed from your account. When you make a purchase that earns Reward Credit we will send you an email informing you of its value, its expiry date and any special terms of redemption. Your Reward Credit balance will appear in the My Store Credit section of your account.
(b) Reward Credit can only be earned on full-price purchases ie) purchases made without using any other 'Merry Packets' credit, sale discount or promotional code.
(c) Subject to any special terms of redemption, Reward Credit can be applied toward the purchase of any Product from any Seller on this Website.
(d) If a Product purchased using Reward Credit is returned for a store credit, the value of that Reward Credit will be reinstated in your account.
(e) If a Product purchased using Reward Credit is returned for a refund, the value of that Reward Credit will be forfeited (except in the case of a return for a faulty item)
