What is a special order item?
Most of our products are in stock. However, we do list some items on our website that are available for Special Order. This simply means that when you place an order for one of these items, there will be a delay of up to 14 working days in delivery. If you purchase a special order item together with in-stock items, then your entire order will be shipped only when the special order item is available.
Can I cancel or change my order?
Orders can be cancelled or changed if they have not been shipped. Please be aware that orders are generally shipped within one working day, so it is advisable to call us on our toll free number (1800 669 608) as soon as possible when you want to cancel or change an order.
How can I check the status of my order online?
You can follow the fulfilment status of your order from the “My Account” section of our website. After your order has been fulfilled, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provided. This email will provide you with an Australian eParcel tracking number. You can track the shipping status of your order at www.auspost.com.au/track.
Can I place an order from a foreign country?
You can place an order from a foreign country; however orders can only be shipped to an Australian postal address.
What forms of payment are accepted?
We accept MasterCard, Visa and PayPal. We can also accept payment via Direct Debit and Cheque. If you wish to pay via Direct Debit or Cheque then please phone your order through.
How do I pay with PayPal?
You will be transferred directly to your PayPal account once your order details are confirmed. PayPal payments can be in the form of credit cards, your PayPal account balance, or a bank account linked directly to your PayPal account.
When is my credit card charged?
When you place an order using a credit card, the total dollar amount is authorised by your credit card company at the time of your purchase. Once this amount is authorised, your credit card will be debited the total amount of the order and the funds held in a secure authorised funds account. The order is then processed and fully billed when it is shipped from our warehouse. At this point, the funds held in the authorised funds account are transferred to our merchant account.
If you place an order and change your mind before the order is shipped, the order can be cancelled and the funds held in the authorised funds account will automatically expire after 7 days and be refunded to your credit card. This is standard practice for most online retailers.
If your credit card is declined when placing an order then your order is automatically cancelled.
Is my credit card and account information secure?
Hospitality Direct is a safe and secure site. We have advanced SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption and authentication software in place to ensure that your credit card and account details remain secure.
