WHAT can be returned?

Under the Australian Consumer Law, when you buy products and services they come with automatic guarantees that they will work and do what you asked for. If you buy something that isn't right, you have consumer rights. If a product or service you buy fails to meet a consumer guarantee, you have the right to ask for a repair, replacement or refund under the Australian Consumer Law. The remedy you're entitled to will depend on whether the issue is major or minor.

Consumer guarantees do not apply if you:

  • got what you asked for but simply changed your mind, found it cheaper somewhere else, decided you did not like the purchase or had no use for it
  • misused a product in any way that caused the problem
  • knew of or were made aware of the faults before you bought the product
  • asked for a service to be done in a certain way against the advice of the business or were unclear about what you wanted

CREDIT for returns?

  • Stock Items:
    • We adhere to consumer laws where if an item is faulty or not as described a full refund or store credit will be given, the customer may choose which they prefer.  Changing your mind or the market price drops are not valid reasons for refund.
  • Non-Stock Items:
    • A Non Stocked item is one that has had to be specially ordered, in other words an item we would not normally stock.  An example of a non stocked item would be a bundle of notes specifically ordered.
    • We will refund on a non stocked item if it can be resold within 14 days, if the item is sold within the 14 days a refund will be forwarded less any loss Townsville Coins has incurred.  If the item can not be resold no refund will be given.

Items purchased that included an additional bonus gift must return both the original item and the bonus gift in order to receive a refund.

Upon confirmation of the item being returned, a store credit is available immediately upon approval, whereas refunds typically take anywhere from 3-7 business days to appear in your account.
