Terms and Conditions of Shopping and Ponderings EcoSystem

Terms and Conditions* by entering this space you agree:




Contactless Delivery and Authority to Leave


Most orders are sent by Registered Australia Post e-parcel service. Occasionally we also use selected couriers.


Australia Post or the courier delivers and no one is home, you should receive a 'calling card' explaining where to collect the parcel from the Post Office (or for couriers, how to arrange redelivery).


If you are not home please consider having the order shipped to a work address or PO Box. 


Australia Post may deliver parcels with contactless delivery, not requiring a signature. By ticking 'Authority to Leave' Ponderings relinquishes any responsibulity for missing or lost items. 



  • In accordance with the current Consumer Affairs laws you must advise us should an order delivery be late, incorrect or damaged. Please contact us immediately on shopping@ponderings.com.au. Should an order be lost, damaged or incorrectly completed (we are human and accidents can happen), we may not send replacement items immediately. Replacement items will be dispatched using our discretion.
  • Ponderings and associated peoples do not accept liability for items lost, stolen or damaged during or after a delivery.
  • Ponderings will not be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from late delivery or the handling of products by third-party delivery businesses 




An additional cost may apply for orders in areas outside the East / South coast major regional and metropolitan centres for orders over 5kg in weight or large in size. We will contact you first to approve any additional charge. Again, we will use our discretion. 


We pick and pack from our offices. If an item is not be in stock - in which case we will let you know as soon as possible. Should you require urgent delivery, or have special delivery requirements, please contact us on shopping@ponderings.com.au or call 0401 409 499. This must be done before your item is in transit. 


Please ensure you allow shopping@ponderings.com.au in your inbox accepted contacts, otherwise your email provider may make the booboo of popping us in the Junk box (so uncool right?)




We may without notice place a buying limit on items, including after an order has been placed. Should the order quantity exceed the limit, we will contact you to arrange a refund for the items that we will not supply; you will be notified as soon as possible. This kind of situation may happen if we experience an insane amount of orders that exceed our capability of delivering on time to you. 


Promotional Codes 

The following terms and conditions (T&Cs) apply to the use of ALL online promotional vouchers and codes distributed by Ponderings.


Codes must be used at the time of checkout and can not be applied after purchase.

Ponderings Promotional codes are only to be used for a one time purchase only.

Promotion codes can not be used in conjunction with any other promotional offer or promotional code. 

Promotional codes are not valid on sale items or other discounted items.

Ponderings reserves the right to cancel the use of promotional codes or to cancel the entire order without refund* where the codes are used in the following circumstances:

a. suspicious or fraudulent codes use;

b. use that breaches any of these terms and conditions;

c. code abuse, including codes redeemed using multiple accounts, names, email addresses or checkouts associated with the same customer or group of customers; and/ or

d. codes used in bad faith (including shared codes, resold vouchers, or use of codes on orders made and intended for resale).


In the event of any of the above code misuse, we reserve the right to cancel an order without refund as fair payment for the damage and costs caused to our business. Part of the funds will instead be donated to a worthy charity of our choosing.


Additional terms and conditions may be specified in relation to specific promotional codes (for example, duration, discount amount and products covered), and will govern the use and redemption of those vouchers in addition to these terms.


Use of codes by re-sellers is not tolerated, and Ponderings reserves the right to cancel orders which are deemed to display re-seller behaviour.

Promotional codes are not exchangeable for cash.


Ponderings reserves the right to change these terms or cancel any promotions at any time without notice.


In the event of the return of any product purchased using a promotional code, the order no longer qualifies for the promotion advertised, and thus Ponderings will deduct the value of the offer from the refund.
