WHEN WILL MY ORDER SHIP?
All orders placed Monday - Friday will be dispatched within 24 hours. All orders placed after 12pm Friday will be dispatched the following business day. For consumer protection, all orders are subject for review. On occasion, this may cause a slight delay in processing your order. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
Note: Orders placed during weekends, special promotions and holidays may take additional processing time due to increased order volume. Please allow 1-2 extra days for order processing.
DO YOU SHIP TO MY COUNTRY?
Yes! We ship everywhere in the world.
HOW DOES INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING WORK?
Depending on your location, your order will either be sent from our shipping hub in Australia or the UK. Generally if you are located in the South Pacific region (Australia, New Zealand & South Pacific Islands) your order will be shipped from Australia via Sendle. For the rest of the world, your order will be shipped from the UK via Royal Mail or local courier.
Average total transit times are as follows:
- UK - 1-2 Days
- Australia - 2-4 days
- Europe - 2-4 days
- USA - 10-12 days
- Rest of World - 14-21 days
- Please bear in mind these are estimates only and delays can occur in transit or due to holds at your local customs office, so it may take longer for an order to be delivered.
Depending on your country of residence, and value of your order, local customs fees may apply to international shipments to customers NOT based in the following countries: UK, Australia, EU, USA.
We know that the customs office is not a fun place, but we need to follow their rules and fill out all customs forms properly by marking the package correctly and including the value of your goods. Otherwise, we risk having the shipment returned to us or being prohibited from shipping to that country. Any collection of customs fees goes to your government, not to Free Spirit. Since we do not have control over the customs authorities in your country and since fees vary from country to country, we recommend contacting your local customs office for more information about customs fees, duties and taxes, and how to avoid them. Most countries allow up to a certain value of goods into the country without any additional duties and taxes.
We offer express shipping for AUS & UK only. UK orders generally arrive the next day anyway, but purchasing express shipping (before 12pm!) will guarantee this. In Australia, all express orders will be sent via Express Australia Post, which cuts the transit time down from 2-4 days to 1-2 days. This can differ for addresses in remote areas. Please place express orders before 12pm to be dispatched the same day.
DO YOU SHIP TO PO BOXES?
Yes we can ship to PO Boxes. Please note that any PO Box addresses in Australia will be shipped to via Australia Post and not Sendle, and may take slightly longer than stated above.
