Missed the Post? If there is no-one to accept delivery, Australia Post should take your parcel back to the nearest Post Office. Australia Post will normally leave a card allowing you to collect your delivery from your local Post Office, at your convenience. Your package will look like any other everyday Australia Post package, it will carry no indication of us being an adult store, and you will not need to mention us in order to pick-up your package. Australia Post now offers 24 hour parcel collection from discreet parcel lockers in dozens of locations. We highly recommend using this service if you cannot be home to sign for your purchase.
Missing Parcel? Whilst we do the best we can to ensure safe and secure delivery of parcels, once a parcel is accepted by Australia Post delivery of the item is out of our control. Should your parcel not be delivered to the address you entered for shipping, and it is not at your local post office for collection, please get in touch with us for a tracking number. This number can be used when you lodge a query with Australia Post.
To guarantee delivery of your parcel or to insure your parcel please make sure you select Registered Parcel Post during the checkout process.
