All items will be held for 10 days. If your return parcel, receipt and form have not been received by then the item(s) will be placed back on the shelf.
Note: Unfortunately, your postage charges on the return for an exchange are not refundable. If you are returning an item for exchange (ie: the same style is being changed for a different size or colour), you are not required to pay for standard delivery on the outgoing parcel (the shoes exchanged and send back to you). All other returns/reorders will be charged the standard delivery rate (AUD 9.95).
We recommend that you return the product via Australia Post and that you pre pay all postage. You assume any risk of loss, theft or damaged goods during transit and we therefore advise you take out shipment registration and insurance with your postal carrier. Famous Footwear will not be responsible for parcels lost or damaged in transit if you choose not to insure.
Cancelling/amending an order
As we work hard to get your order out to you quickly, your items are dispatched swiftly and in most cases we are unable to make amendments or cancellations. However if you call (07) 5563 3055 (9-5.30 Mon - Thurs, 9-4 Fri AEST - Phones unattended on weekends and Public Holidays) or email email@example.com immediately after placing your order, if your items have not been dispatched we can attempt to make amendments or cancellations (this option is unavailable out of business hours). If you still require a refund after goods have been dispatched, you can email us and send back your order at your own expense and we will refund you less the shipping fee.
Returns will be accepted for any products believed to have a manufacturing fault and returned to the point of purchase (in store or online) along with proof of purchase within a reasonable time frame. Pending in-store or online assessment, customers will be provided with a full refund, partial refund, replacement item or credit note. Items will not be deemed faulty if it is concluded that the damage is due to general wear and tear.
Note any shoes deemed faulty will need to be destroyed by cutting the shoe uppers.
Returns Made In Store
We are glad to exchange or offer store credit for full purchase value where goods are:
- In a re-sellable condition (unworn)
- Returned within 90 days of purchase
- Proof of purchase is provided
A refund for change of mind will only be given within 30 days of the initial purchase and where a receipt is provided. Items must be completely unworn and re-sellable at their full value. No refunds will be given if items have been worn, if more than 30 days has passed, or on exchanges, credit notes and gift vouchers. Refunds will only be given out in the same form as the initial transaction (cash transactions will be refunded for cash, card payments refunded back onto the same card etc).
Where goods are deemed to have a manufacturing fault, are wrongly described or are different from a sample shown, you may choose between an exchange, store credit note or a refund (receipt must be produced for refund).
A manufacturing fault does not include wear and tear, damage caused by the customer, incorrect sizing/fitting/discomfort or any problems associated with decorative features (beading/jewels/embellishments) on an item.
Where customers do not agree with the in store decision, we reserve the right to hold the item for 10 working days for further assessment.
This policy is made in accordance with the guidelines set out by consumer affairs.
