What do you charge for shipping?

Within Australia
$11 (inc GST) for Regular Parcel Post (with tracking)
$14.30 (inc GST) for Express Post (with tracking)
$4.40 (inc GST) for small, lightweight items on their own that can be sent as large letters instead of parcels, eg Cintas, Greeper Laces (no tracking)
Free shipping on orders over $150 (within Australia)

Charging a flat rate of postage helps make our systems more efficient so we can get your orders to you faster. We send most of our orders within Australia with pre-paid satchels through either Regular Parcel Post or Express Post (your choice) to ensure swift, trackable delivery. Depending on the size of your order, we may use a 500g satchel or a 3kg satchel, which cost between $8.25 and $14.80 (depending on which service you choose), so a $11.00 fee for Regular Parcel Post and a $14.30 fee for Express Post is a compromise that ensures we cover most of our costs (satchel + time), while keeping it fair for you. However, some of our smaller, lightweight items can be shipped as a large letter (instead of a parcel) when ordered on their own, eg Cintas Hairbands and Greeper Laces. Depending on how many of these you order, you may have the option of a special Priority Post rate of $4 (unfortunately, there is no tracking on this).

International (NZ, Singapore, UAE)
Ship by weight (calculated at check out). Unfortunately, international shipping from Australia is quite expensive. When we get to the post office, if we find that the shipping comes in at significantly less that what you've been charged, we will refund you the difference. Due to the cost of international shipping, it is difficult for us to process exchanges from overseas if you choose the wrong size (shipping will be at the customer's expense) so please come to us first with any questions about sizing before you order.

Why does the price change when I check out? Why hasn't my bulk discount has been applied?

Because I sell both in Australia and internationally, the prices display without GST (eg SmartKnitKIDS socks display as $15/pair ex GST). It is only when you put your shipping details in that my site recognises you are in a Australia and adds the 10% GST (bringing the unit price to $16.50 inc GST). If you have ordered a bulk quantity that qualifies for a discount, your shopping cart will show the discounted unit price BEFORE GST (in the case of the socks, $13.50/pair) and 10% GST will be added when you progress to checkout (bringing the unit price back up to $14.85). I am trying to improve this system so it is clearer for customers - my apologies for any confusion.  

I just want to try one pair of socks or undies first - can I get a sample?

Unfortunately, we are unable to send samples due to the costs involved. However, we know it can be tricky buying clothes online when you're not sure about sizes or if they'll even work for you. We want you to feel confident when buying through us, so this is what we do offer:

  • after placing your order, you will receive an automated invoice via email, which will include a coupon code enabling free shipping within Australia once per customer. This means if you come back for more, you won't be charged freight as long as you remember to use the coupon code next time you order (unfortunately the discount can't be applied retrospectively). If you don't receive this invoice, please check your junk mail.
  • If you order multiple of the same item but, after trying the first one, you realise it's not a good fit, we are happy to exchange (or, in some circumstances, refund) items that are unworn and still in their original packaging. We ask you to email us first and, if we give you the all clear to return the unworn items for exchange, we ask you to enclose a pre-paid Australia Post satchel so we can send the new goods to you. Please refer to our terms & conditions for more information.

I want ankle socks but I can't work out how to use the sizing chart...

The SmartKnitKIDS socks are not actually sold as ankle, crew and knee height - this is just a guide to where the socks will sit, depending on your child's shoe size and the sock size chosen. Keep in mind that the socks have no shaped heel, so the sizing is very flexible - multiple sizes may suit your child, but the tightness of the fit and the length on the leg will vary. As you progress through the SmartKnitKIDS sizes, the socks increase slightly in width and length.

To use the SmartKnitKIDS sizing chart, refer to your child's shoe size first on the left hand side. Follow this row across to the column that matches the leg height you want and this will indicate the recommended sock size. When choosing the size during the ordering process, we also provide the length of the sock in centimetres from top to toe (remembering there is no heel). You can measure from the tip of your child's big toe, along the top of the foot and up the leg to where you want the sock to sit, then use the measurements as a guide. There is quite a bit of stretch in the socks and they can also be folded or pushed down. If you're still not sure, please contact us.

The size or colour I want is not in stock - when will it be available?

This will depend on the brand. It is best to contact us and we can let you know.

Can I place a special order for a size or product that you don't normally stock?

This will depend on the brand. It is best to contact us and we can let you know.
