Please read carefully these standard terms for reliable mail-order services.

  • Most orders are sent by Registered Australia Post e-parcel service, ensuring that your order can be traced. Occasionally we also use selected couriers.
  • If no-one is at home when Australia Post or the courier delivers, you should receive a 'calling card' explaining where to collect the parcel from the Post Office (or for couriers, how to arrange redelivery).
  • If no-one will be at home during the day, you might consider having the order shipped to a work address.
  • Instructions to leave - you can also leave special instructions (in the Comments Box during Checkout) for the order to be left in a safe location should you not be at home. Please note, however, that by doing so you take responsibility should the order go missing after it is delivered.

Please note:

  • It is your responsibility to advise us should an order delivery be late, incorrect or damaged. Please contact us immediately on shop@biome.com.au. Should an order be lost in transit, damaged or incorrect, we may not send replacement items immediately. Replacement items will be despatched according to our discretion following our investigations.

  • We will not be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from late delivery.

We accept orders from NZ, USA, UK and other countries.  International orders are not subject to sales tax, so all prices are less 10% when purchased from overseas. Once you have placed your order online, we will contact you by email to confirm these costs.  Please look out for an email and contact us if you do not receive it within two days.

You can see estimated shipping costs at this page > International Postage Cost Calculator.


Gift service

The pleasure of gift-giving is enhanced when the gift carries a special earth-friendly meaning.

Online shopping is perfect for gift-giving, as your gift can be sent directly to the person, wherever they may live. To do this, at the checkout you simply specify a different delivery address from your billing address. You will also be asked during the checkout to enter a personal message for the card, if you wish.

For $5 per gift we will wrap your present and include a gift card.  Please note that if you request more than one gift to be wrapped with an order, we will charge an extra $5 per gift wrapping.

You can also purchase a gift voucher and have it sent to you or the recipient by email.

Packaging

We use environmentally-responsible packaging and recycle all packaging materials that are sent to us. Therefore, you may sometimes receive packaging such as plastic bubble wrap, but at least it is having a second life!


Privacy policy

We guarantee to never disclose, sell, rent or exchange your personal details to any third party for any reason.

Spam annoys us greatly and we would never do anything to increase the spam cluttering our planet!

We only collect your details that are necessary to ensure that we can effectively complete your transaction and deliver your order.
