Placement of an order by you constitutes an offer to enter into an agreement with us. Upon the receipt of an order we will communicate to you (normally by e-mail), a confirmation that we have received the details of your offer. In the case of online orders we will also confirm the dispatch of your order, with consignment details for online tracking, where available.
No contract will exist between you and LatestBuy for the sale by it to you of any product unless and until LatestBuy confirms acceptance of your order by e-mail or phone.

At all times we will contact you as soon as possible should a problem exist with your order. A customer service representative may also contact you from time to time for security reasons to confirm the authenticity of your order.
Orders will be processed and dispatched, subject to product availability, based on the delivery service chosen. It is extremely important that order forms contain correct and complete information.

Redirection to an address other than that contained within your original order will incur you additional charges. Accurate contact information, such as telephone numbers etc. allows us to contact you in the event of a problem with your order.
Orders will not be dispatched until full payment has been received and LatestBuy is satisfied with the integrity of the order. LatestBuy is not responsible for any loss or damage caused by late delivery or cancellation of an order or a product.

LatestBuy use an integrated network of reputable logistics companies who deliver to residential and business premises internationally. We offer a number of flat-rate delivery services Australia-wide and internationally, irrespective of the number of products you order.
We believe that we have aligned ourselves with excellent delivery partners, but there may be times when, despite their best efforts, parcels are delayed in the delivery process. The specific carrier we choose for the delivery of your order is dependent on the delivery service you have chosen and the nature of your specific order (e.g. weight, volume etc.).
It is the responsibility of the customer to inform LatestBuy if an order does not arrive or if you believe the contents of your order are incorrect. Once we learn an order has not arrived by the due date, we will lodge an enquiry with our applicable logistics agent to ensure delivery occurs as soon as possible. We will always endeavour to work with our delivery partners to ensure prompt arrival of your products.
Please allow up to the maximum estimated days for delivery. Also note that if an item has been lost in transit or if you have received an incorrect order, we may not dispatch correct or replacement items immediately. Items will be dispatched at our discretion. Should there be a problem with the delivery of your order, please contact us using our Enquiry Form.
As a guide only, our carriers attempt to deliver between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Unfortunately we are unable to give a guaranteed time of delivery. During checkout and under ‘Shipping Details’, we recommend that you provide your daytime address (e.g. business address) should there be any possibility of your usual contact address being unattended at the time of delivery.
Where you have chosen our Standard, Standard Express, Super Express or Express Courier International (ECI) delivery service, recipients will be required to sign for delivery. By doing so, you agree that we have satisfied this condition where a signature has been received from the recipient, appropriate agent or proxy recipient of the order (chosen at the carrier’s discretion). This includes, but is not limited to, a hotel or office receptionist signing on receipt of delivery at the specified address. You agree that in doing so we have delivered the order within the terms of the agreement between you and us.
In the event that a signature cannot be obtained on the first delivery attempt, the recipient will be left a card with details on how their parcel can be obtained. Please note that where applicable, re-deliveries after a second failed attempt will incur additional charges.
If you do not select our Standard, Standard Express, Super Express or ECI delivery service, you agree that when our carrier is satisfied that the order has been delivered, delivery of the order has taken place within the terms of the purchase agreement between you and us.
Without limiting the operation of any other Terms and Conditions herein, you agree that late delivery does not constitute a failure of our agreement, and does not entitle you to cancel an order. LatestBuy rely on the delivery services of third party agents. We will not accept liability for any loss or damage arising from a late delivery nor will we accept liability for any loss or damage arising from items lost, stolen or damaged after delivery has taken place.

Refund, Exchange and Warranty
To enable you to shop with confidence LatestBuy offer a 365 day ‘no quibbles’ money back guarantee on most items in our product range. If you’re not completely satisfied with your purchase, return it in its original packaging and condition within 365 days of receipt of your goods, and we will refund your money – less delivery charges (unless goods are dead on arrival, damaged, faulty or incorrectly dispatched and this is advised to us in accordance with these Terms and Conditions). Faulty goods may be able to be returned after the 365 day period, in accordance with an extended warranty provided by the manufacturer.
To return goods to us, all we require you do is complete our Enquiry Form. Once we receive your completed Enquiry Form we will issue you with a Return Merchandise Authority (RMA) number and if we are responsible for return carriage under these Terms and Conditions, advise you the details of how best to return the product(s) to us. The RMA number must be written on your original invoice/receipt and return shipping label. Returns must be received by LatestBuy within 14 days of the RMA number being issued.
In most cases we will advise you to return products by post, in which case please use the following postal address:
The best packaging to use for returning products is the packaging in which you originally received your order. If this is not available please return products in an envelope, satchel, bag or box suitable for mail or courier transport. Australia Post will normally have a range of suitable packaging available for purchase. It is your responsibility to ensure the goods are adequately packaged to ensure that they are not damaged during return transit. Please ensure that you enclose your original invoice/receipt with all returned product(s).
Where you are responsible for return carriage under these Terms and Conditions, such as with a ‘change of mind’ purchase, please note that the risk of products in transit from you to us lies with you. Accordingly, you are free to choose any method of shipping available, including options such as registration, insurance and online tracking. However, please note that we are not able to process returns where we do not physically have possession of the product(s). In all instances, where possible, we recommend that you retain proof of shipping whenever returning items to us.
If the product you are returning included a special offer, return of the additional item(s) will be at our sole discretion. Any return may also void a multiple purchase discount.
For ‘change of mind’ purchases, goods can only be accepted for refund or exchange in unmarked, unused, 100% unworn, original condition and packaging, complete with all instruction booklets, warranty cards, accessories etc. Packaging seals (where applicable) must not be broken. LatestBuy has sole discretion as to whether goods returned comply with these conditions. If you are unsure as to whether your ‘change of mind’ satisfies this criteria, please contact us using our Enquiry Form. We do not sell used items and returned products that do not comply with these conditions or cannot be associated with an RMA number may be returned to purchaser, further incurring you delivery charges.
For ‘change of mind’ purchases you will incur the original delivery charge and the cost of returning the product(s) to us. At our option, we will either refund you the appropriate amount in the same manner that you paid us, provide you with a Gift Voucher of equivalent value, or exchange the product. Where a product is exchanged, differences between the purchase value of the new product (including applicable delivery charges) and your refund value will either require further payment or the issue of a Gift Voucher, as the case may be.
We warrant that any product sold by LatestBuy will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 365 days from your invoice/receipt date, or such longer period as may be offered by LatestBuy in any particular case. If any defects in materials or workmanship in a product we have sold are identified and notified to us within this warranty period then we will, at our option, either repair or replace the product, or refund your money and take back the product. LatestBuy does not accept any liability beyond this, and does not accept any liability for consequential loss.
Our liability under this warranty is subject to us being satisfied that a defect was caused by defective workmanship or materials, and was not caused by or substantially contributed to by other factors, or circumstances beyond our control, including (but not limited to) defective installation, maintenance or repair, accidental or malicious damage, alteration or modification of the product in a manner not recommended by the manufacturers or any neglect, misuse or excessive use.
The LatestBuy warranty does not extend to and we are not liable for, any damage to articles to which a product is attached or with which it is used, or for the consequences of a product being used for any purpose for which it has not been designed or for which its use is not recommended by the manufacturers.
Please carefully inspect your goods when they arrive. If for some reason your product(s) arrive in a damaged state, are dead on arrival, or you believe they have been incorrectly dispatched, please contact us using our Enquiry Form within 48 hours of receipt of your goods. You will be required to complete our Enquiry Form and retain the original packaging for returning products to us. Where dead on arrival or warranty claims are not found to be valid, you will be charged a no-fault fee of AU $100, plus applicable delivery charges.
LatestBuy will endeavour to process all returned goods within 5 business days of receipt. Excluding ‘change of mind’ returns, but including all valid warranty claims, we will pay for the shipping cost associated with returning the product(s) to us. At our option, we will either refund you the appropriate amount in the same manner that you paid us, provide you with a Gift Voucher of equivalent value, or exchange the product (subject to product availability) free of delivery charges. You will still be liable for the delivery charge associated with your original order and where we are providing free return delivery it is at our sole discretion what delivery service is chosen.
If you have paid for all or part of a return with a voucher, your refund will comprise an equivalent voucher, available for you to use the next time you place an order with LatestBuy. If the voucher you used would have expired at the time of refund, the voucher will be deemed to have no cash value.
If you are returning an item given to you as a gift, these terms and conditions relating to the refund, exchange and warranty of items purchased from LatestBuy equally apply. We are happy to exchange faulty or defective products or alternatively, issue a Gift Voucher for the value of the gift item you are returning. However, if a refund is required, please note that refunds of the purchase price for items bought as gifts can only be given to the original purchaser.
Please allow 2 weeks for refunds from the time we have received returned goods and 4 weeks for credit to appear on your bank statements. We cannot refund to a different credit card to the one used when the purchase was made. A customer service representative will endeavour to communicate (normally by e-mail) the successful processing of all refunds, exchanges and warranty claims.
Please note that all warranty claims and returns must be accompanied by a valid invoice/receipt. There are also expressed or implied conditions, warranties, guarantees, rights and remedies under the Competition and Consumer Act and you may also have additional rights under a manufacturer’s warranty on certain products. Where you pursue a manufacturer claim after expiration of our 365 day warranty, it will be your responsibility to incur all costs and to follow warranty instructions as stated on the product warranty card.

Availability of Goods
With the exception of gift hampers and personalised products, most goods can be delivered internationally.
Please note that all transactions are charged in Australian Dollars (AUD). Any display of prices in other currencies is approximate only. While the 10% Australian GST is not charged for exported goods, you will be responsible for any additional import fees, taxes, brokerage fees and handling fees levied by the recipient country. These additional fees are not collected or controlled by LatestBuy.
Also, you might be contacted by your local customs office regarding the payment of customs fees, or to receive final delivery of your order. Customs processing of your shipment might cause delays in the delivery of your parcel. To avoid disappointment, we suggest you become familiar with your country’s customs process and fee structure before ordering.
LatestBuy supports the responsible service of alcohol. It is against the law to sell or supply alcohol to, or to obtain alcohol on behalf of, a person under the age of 18 years. To buy alcohol, the buyer must be at least 18 years of age, be located within Australia and specify a delivery address within Australia. By placing an order, the buyer confirms they are at least 18 years of age. If buying alcohol as a gift, the recipient must also be at least 18 years of age.
