shipping and delivery policy

Thank you for visiting and shopping at Innovative Resources. The following sets out the terms and conditions that constitutes our Shipping Policy.

processing your order

Email confirmation will be sent to you after successfully placing your order. Please keep this email as proof of purchase until you receive your tax invoice with your shipment.

processing time

Processing time is the time it takes for us to prepare your order for shipping.

All orders will be processed within 1 to 2 business days (excluding weekends and public holidays) after your payment is authorised and verified.

We endeavour to ship your order as soon as possible.

*Please note: we are closed for an extended time over the Christmas period. Exact reopening times will be displayed from December each year.

tracking orders

We use Australia Post for all orders.

Australia Post will email you the tracking number, estimated delivery date, tracking link and information about delivery and options to redirect on the day the parcel is sent out. If you supplied a mobile number (domestic only) you will also receive texts with this information.

Australia Post will email (and text if applicable) an estimated delivery timeframe on the day your order is delivered. If you are not able to take delivery, Australia Post will leave a card and take your parcel to your Local Post Office (LPO) for collection (domestic only).

All our parcels are marked ‘requiring a signature’. This is a safety measure, ensuring parcels are not left where they can be stolen, damaged, or misplaced.

*Please note that although we do everything in our control to ensure the safety of your package and its delivery, we are not responsible for the package once Australia Post takes receipt of it. It is the responsibility of the customer to follow up on any delivery issues with Australia Post, excluding incorrect labelling. If this is the case, please make contact with us immediately.

delayed delivery

If your order seems to be delayed, you can lodge an enquiry with Australia Post. Please call 13 13 18 and quote your tracking number. Alternatively, you can track your order via this link using your tracking number.

If you do not receive a satisfactory resolution from Australia Post, please email with your order number, tracking number and a brief description of what the issue is. We will follow up on your behalf and keep you informed.

undelivered items

If a parcel is returned to us due to being ‘unclaimed’ or rejected by Customs, and you still wish to receive it, you will be required to pay the shipping fee again.

We will notify you via email when a parcel is returned and will keep your item for 30 days. If we do not receive a response from you by then your order will be cancelled and returned to stock.

Extra Cover

If you’d like extra peace of mind when sending an item, you can add Extra Cover. It provides loss or damage cover up to the specified value of your item (from $100 up to $5,000) while it’s being carried by Australia Post. You can add extra cover at the checkout page.

If you don’t purchase Extra Cover and your item is lost or damaged while in the care of Australia Post, you may still be eligible for compensation of up to $100. Australia Post offer this for most items you send, with eligibility of claims assessed on a case-by-case basis. A refund of postage may also be payable.

Note: A customer is not eligible for compensation where damage was not caused or contributed to by Australia Post
