At astico we understand selecting the right style and size online can be a difficult one. For this reason, we welcome an exchange or full refund on online orders within 21 days of purchase provided the tax invoice can be produced, the original labeling is in tact and items are returned in unworn condition. astico is not obliged to offer a refund, repair or exchange without providing proof of purchase. Refunds can be issued on purchases made online on www.astico.com.au only.

To ensure you receive your preferred exchange choice please email astico@astico.com.au with your name, contact details, invoice number and details of the preferred replacement choice (Item name, colour & size). This will ensure your item is kept aside whilst we await the return of your garment to us. If the style you require is ‘out of stock’ an online credit note or refund will be issued.

CONSUMER RIGHTS & GUARANTEES

All your usual consumer rights apply when you shop with an Australian online business. Online businesses selling goods and services must:

  • ensure products and services meet Australian safety regulations
  • not mislead you or hide costs and other details from you
  • compete fairly to ensure a variety of choices on quality and price
  • give you automatic guarantees with the right to ask for a repair, replacement, refund, cancellation or compensation as appropriate if there is a problem
  • have the right to sell you a product–it mustn’t be stolen and must belong to the business or individual and not come with any outstanding debts.

Since 1 January 2011, the following consumer guarantees on products and services apply. Products must be of acceptable quality, that is:

  • safe, lasting, with no faults
  • look acceptable
  • do all the things someone would normally expect them to do.

 

Acceptable quality takes into account what would normally be expected for the type of product and cost. Products must also:

  • match descriptions made by the salesperson, on packaging and labels, and in promotions or advertising
  • match any demonstration model or sample you asked for
  • be fit for the purpose the business told you it would be fit for and for any purpose that you made known to the business before purchasing
  • meet any extra promises made about performance, condition and quality, such as life time guarantees and money back offers
  • have spare parts and repair facilities available for a reasonable time after purchase unless you were told otherwise.

You have the right to ask for a repair, replacement or refund under the Australian Consumer Law consumer guarantees for products and services bought on or after 1 January 2011. The retailer who sold you the product or service cannot refuse to help you by sending you to the manufacturer or importer.
You can ask for a replacement or refund if the problem with the product is major. Replaced products must be of an identical type to the product originally supplied. Refunds should be the same amount you have already paid, provided in the same form as your original payment.
The business may take into account how much time has passed since you bought the product.

Returning the product

  • You are responsible for returning the product, unless the cost of doing so is significant. In this case, the business must organise and pay for the return or exchange.
  • You do not have to return products in the original packaging in order to get a refund.
