RETURNS POLICY | FAULTY TERMS & CONDITIONS | SALTY CRUSH

RETURNS POLICY

We want you to be completely satisfied with your online purchase. If you change your mind for any reason, the item does not suit you or it is the wrong size we’ll gladly accept a return of any full priced item for a store credit in the form of a gift card subject to the following conditions:

  • The item must be returned within 21 days of receiving your order. We suggest all items are tried on as soon as they are received to ensure you are able to return items within this timeframe. 

  • Items must be returned in original condition, unworn, unaltered, unwashed and with their tags attached. 

  • Must not have any dirty marks, make-up or tan marks. 

  • Must not smell of perfume, deodorant, cosmetics or washing powder. 

  • We also do not accept returns of any FINAL sale items. Final Sale items are all items marked down on the sale section of our website. If an item is discounted as a part of a promo or flash sale, but will go back up to full price after the sale has finished - it is not considered sale stock and can be returned. 

  • Once we receive your return in our warehouse and process this we will issue you with a store credit (in the form of a gift card) to the email address on your order.

  • Store credits are valid for 3 years from the date of issue. 

    Salty Crush do not provide refunds for change of mind, incorrect sizes or faults to the garment made by the customer. 

    We currently cannot exchange returns due to high turnover of stock and the risk of it creating a discrepancy in the system. We will provide you with a store credit to spend on the new size or piece that you wish.

    At this stage we only offer free return shipping for Australian customers only. For International returns please see below in INTERNATIONAL | HOW DO I PROCESS A RETURN?

    Salty Crush reserves the right to send a return back to you if it does not meet the return requirements listed in our returns policy at your own cost. 

    AUSTRALIA | HOW DO I PROCESS A RETURN? 

    1. If you wish to return any pieces, you can lodge it through our Australia Post Returns Portal - link below - and you will receive an email with a free returns label to print at home immediately.

    2. After printing your return label, adhere it to the outside of your parcel with the items you wish to return packed up neatly inside.

    Please include the following information within your return on the return slip, which can be found inside of your parcel:

    Your Name:
    Order Number:
    Reason For Return: 

    If your reason for return is faulty or looks different to the image or description please see FAULTY RETURNS below for further information on processing this type of return. 

    3. All returns using this method will be sent back to us via Standard Australia Post, which usually takes 5-7 business days to arrive at our warehouse, depending on where you are sending it from.

    Please keep a copy of your return tracking number, as we are not responsible for missing returns.

    4. Once we have received and processed your return, your Store Credit will be created for you and available to use immediately. All voucher information is sent to you via email once created. If you do not receive your voucher information within 5 business days of your return we suggest checking your junk and spam mail or you can email us at info@saltycrush.com


    *Free Returns means that when you access the portal in the link below and print a returns label, that is at no cost to you - Salty Crush will be charged for the cost of your return, so you pay nothing. 

    Please note: Parcels that are ‘Return to Sender (RTS)’ are not included in the free returns. Everytime that a parcel is sent back to us as a RTS we are charged a fee of $15 which we unfortunately have to pass onto the customer to retrieve the costs.
