Matchbox offers two options for Shipping:
- Door-to-door courier service through where goods are sent from your nearest Matchbox store, directly to your nominated Australian delivery address
- Click and Collect service where you may nominate a Matchbox store to collect your order from, resulting in zero postage charges at checkout
Afterpay orders are shipped just like any other order, once you have selected your items, you can either choose to Click and Collect or Ship your order.
What is Afterpay?
With Afterpay you can BUY now and PAY for it later, it’s like layby but even better as your order is shipped immediately. There is no interest or added fees to pay! Using Afterpay, you pay nothing today but pay for your purchase in four smaller instalments. Payment will be automatically taken from your debit or credit card in 4 equal payments over 56 days.
Deliveries by courier can be sent to any residential or business address in Australia.
All courier deliveries require a signature on delivery. If noone is present when the courier attempts delivery, they will either leave your consignment in a safe place, or leave a calling card and email you to organise another time for delivery.
Click and Collect
You may choose the ‘Click and Collect’ option and nominate a Matchbox store, where you can pick up your order. If you choose the Click and Collect option, a staff member from your chosen store will call you when your goods are ready to be picked up. If your order will take longer, due to out of stock or any other issue, a staff member will call to advise you.
Goods will be stored at the nominated Matchbox store for no more than 2 weeks. If your goods remain uncollected after 2 weeks, a staff member will contact you and you may choose to pay extra to have the goods delivered. Otherwise, goods will be put back into stock and you will be refunded your order, minus a cancellation charge equal to 15% of the value of the purchase (but not less than $15.00 and not more than $50.00) will be charged.
Rates & Delivery Times
Shipping rates are calculated based on your postcode and item(s) ordered.
The default option for postage is standard shipping by Australia Post eParcel. Australia Post eParcel (insured) is also a delivery option. Via eParcel delivery (standard & insured), your order will be delivered in 2-7 working days from dispatch, depending on your location. Standard and insured delivery for orders to some remote areas may take up to 10 days.
Please note: we only ship orders to Australian residential or business postal addresses. We reserve the right to charge additional shipping fees for large or heavy orders. In particular, orders over 22kg and orders that are subject to cubing will be contacted for an extra postage quote.
As we are subject to postal service timeframes, we recommend ordering before December 15th, to ensure delivery before Christmas.
Most orders are processed and dispatched within 24-48 hours of the order being placed. We will endeavour to ensure your goods are delivered to you within the timeframes outlined for Standard delivery, however we will not be liable for late delivery by Couriers. Late delivery does not entitle you to cancel the purchase. Matchbox's obligations in relation to delivery end when goods are collected by the courier for delivery to your nominated delivery point.
