Change of Mind

The change of mind of an order will be accepted within 14 days after the items are reserved (bulk) or delivered (all products) only. The day you informed Around The Home through the Returns portal will be considered as the day lodged. Failing to lodge the request within 14days will make the claim null and the change of mind request cannot be processed for the order.

Change of mind is only accepted if lodged through MyReturns of your Around The Home account or by sending an email to shirl@aroundthehome.com.au other than this, requests lodged on support emails/support tickets or any other email/platform will not be considered even if done within the time frame.

You hold the responsibility of returning the product back to the warehouse on the consent of the Returns team. The change of mind request will be cancelled if the product is opened or not in its original packaging. Once products are returned to the warehouse the Returns team will inspect the product and refund if there are no damages with the product or the packaging.

 

Returned to Sender (RTS)

The packages will be returned to the warehouse due to multiple factors, among which below are the cases where the customer bears the restocking and shipment fees for the order.

1) If the package got RTS due to an invalid address.

2) If the address is missing a unit number or other address information.

3) If the package was not collected from the carrier’s depot or if a redelivery is not organised (from the customer’s side). Note: Although all the deliveries are ATL (Authorised to Leave), it depends on the carrier’s driver who is dropping off the package to take the call of whether or not it is safe to drop the package. If it is not safe to drop, the package will be taken to the carrier’s nearest depot for collection where the customer can collect the package after providing their ID (Passport/Driver’s licence)./ It is the responsibility of the customer and the dropshipper to monitor the package in transit and organise re-delivery or pick up from the depot or collection point. Failing to do so, the package will be returned to us which will incur the shipment charges along with 15% restocking fees.

4) If the recipient at the address refuses the delivery.
