Shipping Times

Once an order is processed it will be shipped via either overnight courier or Australia Post depending on your customer's shipping selection (more information for you on activating the Australia Post shipping option here.

For the most part, orders shipped via overnight courier service are delivered the day after processing is complete to anywhere in Australia. 
(Bond Imaging are based in Melbourne.) Australia Post deliveries can take longer as this is not a priority service.


Shipping Costs

The full Shipping Cost table is included below (excluding GST) and is also available within your Fotomerchant admin account under the Store / Shipping Methods section. Please note that your Fotomerchant account will allocate the correct Domestic or International Priority shipping option for you (if this was the customers selection). The system determines whether the shipment will be international or domestic after capturing your customer's shipping details and will also decide for you whether the order should be deemed "Regular, Medium or Large".

NB - The Australia Post option is only available for smaller orders. For more detail on the order restrictions please refer to this FAQ





Also note that if you enable the "Allow Customer Pickup" option on your Settings / Direct Fulfillment Settings page, then the order will be shipped to you so that you can then pass the order on to the customer in person. However, in this case the shipping cost will not be passed on to the customer!
