Our Terms & Conditions
Thank you for visiting and shopping with Candlesalight. We appreciate that you like our wide range of products. We also want to make sure you have an extraordinary experience while you’re exploring, purchasing our products.
As with any shopping experience, there are terms and conditions that apply to transactions with Candlesalight. By placing an order or making a purchase, or by accessing any areas of https://candlesalight.com/ website, you agree to be legally bound and to abide by the terms set forth below.
SECTION 1 - PAYMENT METHODS AND PRICING
1.1 Payment Methods
We have a variety of secure payment options available for you:
- PayPal – We accept PayPal. Simply tick this option on checkout and access your PayPal account through our website. This way, your payment will be processed immediately. A 2.9% surcharge applies.
- Pay at Pickup (cash, eftpos or credit card) – Select this option if you would like to pay on pickup. Please note that we cancel unpaid orders after 7 days.
For Pickup Orders - If you have paid for your order online via credit card or wish to pay cash at pickup, you can collect your order at your convenience. It is advisable to phone ahead on 0412 003 338 and advise us of your collection time to ensure your order is ready prior to your arrival.
For Shipped Orders - Once payment has been received, your order is immediately placed in the queue to be made in production, cured and checked, packed and shipped in sequence. You will receive email notifications throughout the process as well as tracking details, so that you can easily track your order once shipped.
1.2 Pricing Policy
The products offered by Candlesalight will process your order once you have registered and we have received your payment details.
All pricing is subject to change without prior notice.
The prices quoted by Candlesalight or viewed on https://candlesalight.com/ are in Australian dollars (AUD) and are fully inclusive of government taxes (GST).
SECTION 2 - REFUND POLICY
We fundamentally believe you will be thrilled with the products you purchase from us. That's because we strive to ensure that they’re sourced or made in line with our customer needs. We understand, however, that sometimes a product may not be what you expect it to be. In that event, we invite you to review the following terms relating to returning a product or making a claim for a refund, credit or replacement product.
Importantly, the rights described in this policy are in addition to the statutory rights to which you may be entitled under Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) and other applicable Australian consumer protection law and regulations. Please note that there may be limitations to your right to return and obtain a refund for products. However, these will always be subject to your statutory rights.
2.1 At a Glance
There are a number of reasons why you might want to return a product or make a claim for a refund, credit or replacement product:
- Change of mind - You made an error
- You received the wrong product
- You received a damaged product
- Your order got lost in transit by the courier company
- Your delivery was incomplete
In case of a “change of mind” claim, there are some items that are ineligible for return. Due to our hygiene and quality control purposes, we do not accept returns on:
- Fragrances and fragrance notes
- Diffuser Base
- Candle additives
- Colour dyes, chips or blocks
- Hand Sanitiser
This ensures we only sell quality products that have not been tampered with, diluted or exposed to temperature change. Products need to be returned at your cost, in original condition suitable for resale. For a “change of mind” claim, a 20% admin/re-stocking fee (with a maximum limit of $150) will apply to enable us to process the claim.
All claims must be lodged within 7 days of receipt or delivery of goods. In the case of a lost order, please allow 7 days for it to arrive, and then lodge your claim within 7 days thereafter.
2.2 Shipping & Delivery
Candlesalight offers deliveries to most areas of Australia. Delivery can be overnight, and no more than 7 working days to most parts in Australia from date of dispatch. Please note that not all payment methods are instant. For PayPal, it can take 1 to 3 days for funds to appear in our account, which delays the processing of your order.
Upon delivery, please check completeness and quality of products to ensure you are satisfied with your purchase. A delivery is interpreted as an attempted delivery by us. We do not accept liability for delay in the event there is no-one to receive the delivery at the delivery address. We advise all customers to carefully choose an address where someone will be available during normal business hours to receive the goods. If no-one is there, or if the delivery address details provided by you are incorrect and thus affect delivery, you will be responsible for the cost if the parcel is returned to us and if you wish to have the shipment returned back to the correct address.
2.3 Claims Process
Claims must be lodged within 7 days of delivery/expected delivery.
Please use our online claims form located on our contact page, and ensure you submit all relevant information, e.g.
- Reason for claim
- Your contact details
- Order number/date
- Delivery method/date
- Product item(s) and description, including quantity of item(s) of defective items
- Photos showing any defective items AND the package, as it looked when it arrived
Await response from our customer service team. Our team will assess the claim and advise you via email about the provisional outcome within 2 business days.
If we request the return of products, customer service will issue you with a Return Authorisation (RA) number. If you return your goods without the RA number, Candlesalight will not be liable for any return delivery charges. Upon receipt of the RA number, you will be advised of the best return shipping address for your goods. Please return these within 7 days and ensure the RA number is written on each box and all items are packed safely. Where possible, all products should be packed in the original, unmarked packaging, including any instructions or documentation that shipped with the product. Broken items will not be refunded if packaging was inadequate.
If, upon inspection, Candlesalight approves your claim, please pay any outstanding fees if applicable.
You will then receive a credit that can be used towards a future purchase(s). Or - for claims regarding missing or defective goods - you can choose to receive replacement products or a refund.
You will not be charged any additional shipping or handling fees unless the return of goods occurred as items were simply not wanted (“change of mind”). All refunds will be at the sole discretion of Candlesalight. No claims will be accepted if the product has been damaged or abused through misuse.
2.4 Receiving Credits, Refunds or Replacement Products
If we issue a refund, these get reviewed by management and then processed by our accounts department. It can therefore take up to 2 weeks for funds to appear in your bank account.
If we approve the dispatch of replacement product(s), and have stock readily available, these will be shipped within 2 business days following approval.
2.5 Cancellation of Orders
An order can be cancelled any time prior to shipment. However, you will be charged a 20% admin/re-stocking fee (with a maximum limit of $150). If your order has not been paid for and not been picked and packed, your order can be cancelled with no penalty.
Should you wish to add additional items to your order, you will have to place a separate order online. This new order will then be shipped separately in sequence. It is simply not possible, once an order has been processed, to unpack this order to remove or add items.
Candlesalight is highly committed to protecting the privacy of personal information and to treat personal information with respect and care in accordance with the national privacy principles set out in the Privacy Act 1988. For further information visit https://www.oaic.gov.au/privacy-law.
