Shopping with Papaya is easy, safe and efficient. Our Shopping Policy is best broken up into two sections - the terms of purchase, and our returns policy.
TERMS OF PURCHASE
Not applicable for customers who use the guest checkout facility when it is available.
Should you decide to become a registered customer with Papaya, the details you enter during the checkout will be saved as your customer profile. You will be required to enter a valid username and password, which can be used upon future visits to the Papaya website to enter the My Account area. You warrant that all information and data provided by you is accurate, complete and up to date. You will promptly notify Papaya if there is any change to this information or data. You must take responsibility for the safekeeping of your username and password, as you are liable if an unauthorised person uses your username and password.
You place an order with Papaya by selecting products and pressing the "add to cart" button on the product page, and completing the 'checkout' process. Papaya reserves the right to accept or reject an order for any reason including without limitation, unavailability of product; an error in the price, image or the product description; an error in your order; or delivery location. Orders are deemed received by Papaya at the time of successful transmission of the order, after which you will be unable to cancel the order. Orders are deemed accepted by Papaya upon Papaya acknowledging the order or failing to reject the order within 21 days.
Papaya uses its best endeavours to ensure products ordered are available for delivery, and in most cases we will notify you when a product is unavailable prior to you completing your order. However you acknowledge that in some cases this is not possible and Papaya may need to reject an order you have placed for a product where Papaya establishes that it is actually unavailable for delivery. In such cases Papaya will refund in full all amounts you paid in respect of such unavailable product. Papaya cannot provide rainchecks for products ordered online, and where permitted by law reserves the right to limit the sale of products to reasonable or normal household quantities.
You assume full responsibility for ensuring the product you select for purchase is suitable for the environment it will be used in. This includes ensuring the size of an item is appropriate, the material of the item can withstand its placement, and that the colour is what you require. If a delivered item is not suitable for these or other reasons not expressed by the Australian Consumer Laws, please contact Papaya for personalised assistance. Although not obliged, and at our disctetion we will treat each instance on a case by case basis in determining if the goods can be returned. Please note that in such an instance, a re-stocking fee may apply.
Variation of Products and Price
Papaya may vary the prices on this website at any time, and prices are subject to change until you have paid for the products in full. Product availability and product prices may vary between Papaya's physical stores and those found on this website.
Delivery terms including delivery areas, delivery costs and estimated delivery times are contained in Papaya's Shipping Rates & Times and the Shipping Policy is expressly incorporated in these Purchase Terms.
Please note that to purchase products, your delivery address must be within a suburb where Papaya provides delivery. Orders will not be processed for delivery to an address in a suburb not in Papaya's delivery area. Risk in the products passes to you upon delivery to your nominated delivery address, and title passes upon payment for the products in full.
Return claims (including for replacement products, refunds or credits) are detailed in Papaya's Returns Policy, and the Returns Policy is expressly incorporated in these Purchase Terms. Please refer to this policy to determine your entitlement to a return, and the process that you need to follow. Purchasing from papaya.com.au constitutes an agreement to accept the returns policy as a one of the terms of purchase.
We pride ourselves on creating beautiful products made with care. If you need to request a refund, return or exchange we ask that you take the time to read this returns policy. You can also use our contact us [link] form to send us a message.

Please do not return the items by post or courier until we have replied or spoken to you. We have return options that may be easier and more secure than standard return post services.
RETURNS FOR DAMAGED ITEMS
If your goods arrived damaged please let us know as soon as possible. Damage goods returns must be requested within 7 days of receiving your purchase. Once the return is approved we'll organise a pick-up where possible.
In the case of damaged or faulty goods a photograph of the item can help us determine the best way we can help you. Please include one when you email or write to us.
RETURNS FOR CHANGE OF MIND
We encourage you to choose carefully from our collection. Remember that we're always here to help you find the right item and we're happy to talk to you about what would be best for your home.
Returns for change of mind must start within 14 days of the date of shipment. Please note Papaya may not offer a refund for change of mind returns, however we may offer a credit voucher or exchange. The exchange or credit will not include shipping and handling charges, and these could be charged at the time of return or deducted from a credit voucher or exchange value should we decide to offer one. The exchange or credit will be issued when the goods are received by Papaya in original condition, including product packaging where applicable.
Where an item may not be suitable (eg incorrect size) please contact our customer service team via the Contact Us page for personalised assistance.
Should you wish us to supply a return postal voucher - this will make it easier to return the item to us - a shipping cost will need to be paid, and the parcel taken to your local post office or post shop for postage. For small items and some articles under 2kg the cost will be $15 per parcel. For larger, bulky items or articles over 2kg the return shipping cost will be $20. Items are not usually collected from you unless by special arrangement. Collection of parcels incurs and additional charge of $6.95 for the driver to come to you.
