Returns & Exchange Policy
We want you to be happy with your purchase and wear our products everywhere. For this reason we offer a number of options including like for like exchange:
- Bought something in the incorrect size? Send it back within 14 calendar days from date of purchase within Australia and 21 calendar days if located outside of Australia and we will send you a replacement free of charge. You are responsible for getting the garment back to us and we will cover the postage of the replacement.
- Bought something in the wrong colour? Colour doesn’t suit your skin tone? No worries. We will swap the garment for the same print but in a different colour in the same size. Send it back within 14 calendar days from date of purchase within Australia and 21 calendar days if located outside of Australia and we will send you a replacement free of charge. You are responsible for getting the garment back to us and we will cover the postage of the replacement.
All garments must be in their original condition, unworn with the tags attached, in new and saleable condition. Your replacement item/s will be sent once the original item/s are received and processed.
In the unlikely event that you are sent the incorrect item due to our error, eg: the order does not match the items provided, we will replace the item for you and cover the postage costs both ways - for you to send the item back to us and for us to send the replacement. We will arrange our courier to pick up the item from you and deliver a replacement once the original item is returned and processed.
Proof of postage
We strongly recommend you get proof of postage (it's free!). If you leverage Sendle to return your parcels to us, we will be notified and your delivery will be visible in our dashboard speeding up the exchange process.
Keep it clean
Some items can’t be returned, like swimwear where a hygiene strip or seal has been removed. Please check product descriptions before you order. If you want to return swimwear or any items marked with a '+' next to the product name, please do not remove the original wrapping/seal for hygiene reasons.
Of course, it’s fine to try an item on like you would in a shop, but please don’t actually wear it. If an item is returned to us damaged, worn or in an unsuitable condition, we won’t be able to give you a refund and we may have to send it back to you (and ask you to cover the delivery costs). All items are inspected on return. All returned items should be sent in their original condition and packaging where possible, including tags.
If we notice an unusual pattern of returns activity that doesn’t sit right: e.g. we suspect someone is actually wearing their purchases and then returning them or ordering and returning a lot – way more than even the most loyal Junk Republic customer would order – then we might have to deactivate the account and any associated accounts. If this happens to you and you think we’ve made a mistake, please get in touch with our Customer Delight Team and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you.
This doesn’t affect your statutory rights.
Our goods may come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You may be entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You also may be entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
If you think that there is a fault with the goods you have received, please let us know straight away by contacting our Customer Delight Team. Please include as many details as possible about the order and the problem with the goods.
