Where a combination of the above items is included, please go off the item with the longest shipping time frame. During busy periods or where there are public holidays, this may cause some delays to dispatch. 

 

How long will it take for my order to reach me? An average of up to five business days within Australia, and ten business days internationally.  

Who is responsible for watching the tracking? The customer is responsible for watching the progress of their tracking number and reporting if the tracking is outside of the delivery window, or appears to have stopped moving and being scanned. Unconventional X Stitch does not monitor tracking, and we have a limited window to be able to report packages as lost. Once this window closes we are unable to launch any investigation or claim a lost package. 

Does my order have tracking and insurance? All orders have insurance and tracking. 

Will I have import taxes? This is dependent on your country's import laws. Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. We are not responsible for any import tax duties or otherwise applicable to your shipments. Please do not ask us to falsify documentation, as it may offend when we refuse. 

If you don't pay your import taxes and duties, or claim your shipment and the shipment is returned to us, then unfortunately, you will be liable for the cost of any fines, shipping costs and any other expenses that arise due to failure to pay duties or collect. You will not be covered under our returns policy, as this is classified as a Unauthorised Return. You also accept that in some instances, failure to pay taxes/duties may result in the shipment being destroyed rather than returned, in which case you will be asked to pay any fines/costs associated with this. 

What happens if my items arrive damaged? Please ensure that you make us aware within 24hrs of delivery that your shipment has arrived damaged. Keep all packaging and products, as these may be required in order to effect any claims, and take photos. You may also be required to present to a postal outlet in order to lodge a formal damages claim. If you do not retain any part of the shipment, and do not present to a postal outlet where required, then we will not be able to assist you in any claims made for damages. An investigation will be required for items that arrive damaged. Once items damaged in transit have been investigated, Australia Post will approve the claim and we will be able to refund to you the value of your order only for damaged parts of the order, or where the entire order is damaged, a full refund will be issued.

 

I'd like to change my order

We do not accept changes to orders once they are made. 

 

I'd like to cancel my order (it has not shipped)

All cancellation applications will be strictly at our discretion. Where we elect to accept a cancellation:

  • Any cancellation that we elect to accept, will require the customer to have an account with us, in order to effect a store-credit. 
  • Standard In Stock Items: cancelation before your order begins preparations will result in a store-credit minus any non-refundable fees and charges incurred by us from the payment provider (eg: PayPal). 
  • Cancellations after the preparations process has begun will result in a store-credit minus any non-refundable fees and charges incurred by us from the payment provider, as well as a restocking fee of 10% of item value to cover our time and a charge for any postage supplies and items we cannot reuse (eg: envelopes with labels already attached etc).
  • Customised Items: May not be cancelled at any time, once the order is made, you make the commitment to the custom product(s).
  • Digital Items: Under no circumstances do we refund digital products.

 

Kits:

Free gifts will vary depending on availability of stock at the time. 

Free gifts are not included during any sale events. 

We will pack as many kits as possible per box (this is really important as it helps keep shipping prices low and our carbon footprint small).

This can include, but is not limited to failure to pay duties taxes, failure to collect from customs, fails to collect from postal outlet. You will be liable for the cost of any fines, shipping costs and any other expenses that arise when a return is not authorised. You will not be covered under our returns policy / satisfaction guarantees as it does not meet the requirements.

Where the return is damaged/tampered with, an assessment will be made on if it is still sailable and the value adjusted to reflect it's condition. No store-credit will be available as our insurance only covers sending the product to it's original destination. The damaged goods will be destroyed as they will be classified as unsalable. If the return is a custom item, no financial compensation will be available to you. If you elect to have the shipment sent to you again, a second shipping fee will be payable by you before the shipment can be sent again. As we subsidise the shipping fees on our website, please also be aware that the second shipment fee will not qualify for the subsidies and will be more than our advertised rates.

My Order Was Stolen

It is not recommended that authority to leave without signature is used, though can be at the customer discretion. Where a customer authorises their order to be left without a signature, all insurances are voided as the customer accepts the risks associated. 

If your order was marked as delivered, but you did not receive your order, you may be required to file a Police Report in the event that your order is deemed stolen, and provide this report to us as evidence. This is for insurance purposes, in order to make a claim and have an investigation conducted.  

 

 

Digital Product T&C 

 

  • Purchase is final, no refunds, store credit, or exchanges are available for digital products.
  • Our digital products do not come under the satisfaction guarantee as we offer a selection of free patterns, so you may 'try before you buy.' 
  • Purchase is for access to the digital product and/or products. If you do not access your files, this does not entitle you to a refund.
  • Patterns are not for resale or replication. You are permitted to make a working copy of the design for personal use only. Distribution, sharing, or sale of your downloads is prohibited. 
  • The pattern is not to be used for commercial finished product production. Please contact us if you wish to sell your finished products.
  • Please ensure you download your files at the time of purchase. 
  • If you checked out as a GUEST, ensure you retain your e-mail that connects you to your downloads. Customers accept the risks associated with checking out as a guest, as no access to your downloads will be possible without your email. 
  • Please ensure you check-over your pattern(s) and ensure compatibility with your devices promptly after purchase and report any errors or issues within 24hrs of purchase.
  • It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure they provide an accurate email address, as well as ensure that our emails can get through to your mail box. Failure to do so, may result in being unable to get emails through to you, and also mean we are unable to verify your identity for any communications received in regards to your purchase.
  • We only accept communications from the owner of the purchase, we will require your invoice number, the name used to purchase, and the email used to purchase the design in order to discuss your transactions. We will not use any email other than the one entered at time of purchase.
  • Cases of purchasing the same pattern twice will be eligible for a store-credit at the discretion of Unconventional X Stitch. If a store-credit is awarded, it will be less fees and charges. 
  • In the rare event that a pattern is found to be faulty, a replacement pattern shall be provided in the same form it was originally delivered (PDF will be replaced with PDF, physical replaced with physical). Where a pattern is no longer in print, or cannot be replaced, and the pattern is deemed unusable, a store credit will be offered as way of compensation. 
  • Unconventional X Stitch is not responsible for file storage or file loss. It is the responsibility of the customer to download and safely store or backup their files. 
  • Download your files immediately after purchase. In events such as, but not limited to, retirement/discontinued, these designs will be permanently removed from the server and you will no longer be able to download these files. Pattern files are subject to change/deletion without notice.
