Minimum Return Standards

What constitutes as our minimum return standards are:

  1. The item is returned to us in the same condition in which you received it.
  2. All accessories, manuals, USB cords, USB chargers and/or lithium batteries, plug-in rechargers, and/or other necessary peripheral components that came with your original purchase are boxed with your return.
  3. Your Warehouse Bargains invoice is included in the return parcel.

Important: To better understand what "same condition" means, please read our FAQs before submitting a return request. 

What Happens When Return Items Do Not Meet Our Minimum Return Standards?

It's rare when customer returns do not meet our minimum return standards but should this occur, we will contact the customer to discuss our reasons for cancelling their return request.

It's important customers understand that we are unable to process any return request if the purchased item has: prior use by the customer, has been used incorrectly or in disregard to standard manufacturer recommended guidelines, or the return item is scratched, marked, damaged or lost during return transit.

We ask all our customers to consider Australia Post insurance when shipping the return item back to us via Australia Post. Its incredibly inexpensive for peace of mind. Australia Post will financially reimburse you the $$ value of the insured goods should your return parcel become lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed when using their service. 

When using a shipping carrier service like Toll Logistics for bulky or heavy items, you can request insurance to the $$ value of your purchase for a reasonable fee.

Return Acceptance Guidelines

Warehouse Bargains does not accept any delivery that does not have an authorised RMA (Return Merchandise Authorisation) number pre-assigned to the Return parcel. In the unlikely event that we receive a return item without an authorised RMA number clearly written on the outside of the return packaging, we will ship the return item back to the customer at the customer's expense.

Return Shipping

Requesting a 14 Day Change-Of-Mind Return or Product Exchange does not grant the customer free return shipping.

Warehouse Bargains offers factory direct cut-price products, which means our customers $ave money on every order they make. With the huge reduction in retail price, we are unable to offer free returns too. We'd love to do this for our customers, but its just not financially viable for us to do so. Please respect our difficult decision before purchasing. 

All returns shipped to our nominated return center is at the customer's expense unless a prior written agreement has been reached between Warehouse Bargains and the customer. 

When the customer organises their own shipping carrier (including Australia Post) to transport the return item back to our return center, Warehouse Bargains cannot be held accountable, or liable, if the return item goes missing in the mail or is lost, damaged or stolen during transit. It's important that customers use good tracking facilities and cost-effective transit insurance when returning items to us. 

Returning Bulky or Heavy Items

Please be aware that if the item you wish to return is bulky or weighs more than 22kgs metric volume weight as per Australia Post Size Weight Guidelines , you may need to use a different carrier service that can handle the extra weight or bulky dimensions.

You can use Fastway Couriers or TOLL Logistics if you wish, or you can use any shipping carrier service you like. All we ask is that you notify us via email of the tracking details so we can keep an eye out for your return parcel. 

Please also consider proper insurance to cover you financially in the event your return package is goes missing, or is lost, damaged, stolen or shipped to a destination not related to our warehouse. With transit insurance you will be financially compensated should any of these events occur.

Your Consumer Rights Under Australian Law

When purchasing goods and services from Warehouse Bargains, consumers are provided with automatic guarantees and rights under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL).

The Australian Consumer Law states that goods must match the description provided by the business, be safe to operate, quality controlled for acceptable use, present with no faults or defects, and the goods function and/or perform as described on our website.

Services offered must be provided with acceptable care, skill, and technical knowledge and give the results that the consumer and the business have agreed on. These guarantees and rights provided by Australian Consumer Law are known as ‘Consumer Guarantees’.

Our products come with Consumer Guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. These Guarantees mean that you are entitled to a replacement, or refund if your purchased item is found to have a major fault or failure, and compensation for any reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. In other words, if we knew in advance that the product was defective, and we sold it to you anyway, you would be entitled to compensation under Australian Consumer Law.

As a consumer you are also entitled to have the product repaired, or replaced if the product fails to be of acceptable quality, and the failure or fault does not amount to a major failure. Consumer Guarantees generally apply for an amount of time that can be considered 'reasonable' given factors such as the type, and cost of the product, or any representations made by us regarding product usage and longevity.

Misuse Of Products

When consumers deliberately misuse the product(s) they purchase, or they use the product(s) not as intended or described on our website, or they use the product(s) in a manner that is unfit or unsafe for use, or within an environment that fundamentally places the product under extreme temperature changes, or they alter the product(s) (hardware and software) so that the product does not conform to manufacturer guidelines or specifications, or warranty terms, then consumers limit their Consumer Rights under Australian Consumer Law.

Our Discount Pricing

Warehouse Bargains offers factory direct discount pricing on our entire range. Unlike other discount retail outlets, we can sustain our heavily discounted prices 365 days of the year because we do not have a showroom or bricks and mortar store that impacts our discount pricing. This means that our customers (as in, you) win big time by snapping up your favourite retail brands at near cost price!

Standard Shipping Charge

We do our best to provide free shipping on practically all our stock but there are some items that cannot be shipped free of charge. To avoid confusion on what products are shipped free of charge, and what product are not, we state clearly on each individual product page:
