Care Policy

At Skinnys we endevour to use the highest quality materials available - however we also encourage you to care for your products for maximum longevity.  Skinnys does not take responsibility if you do not care for your product properly.  As many of our products are made from natural materials, they are subject to variations in colour and thickness.  This can be exasperated over time and through the cleaning process - so please be advised that some variations can occur.  However by following the following instructions your sheepskin will remain strong and soft.  

To wash your sheepskins and seatcovers it is ideal to use a woolwash or soft detergent (i.e. softly).  Wash in your washing machine on a gentle wash in cold to warm water, and hang in the shade to dry - DO NOT dry in the sun.  

Due to the soleing - it is not recommended to wash your Ugg Boots in the washing machine (as this can loosen the glue).  However they can still be hand washed following the above instructions.

If you are unsure on how to care for your product simply contact us.

Cancellation of order

To cancel an order, please contact us immediately. Cancelled orders that haven't been dispatched will be refunded.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept cancellations for products that have already been dispatched and our Return Policy will apply in that case.

 

Duplicate orders

From time to time customers could place a duplicate order: two or more of very similar orders, made within a short period of time from each other. For security reasons we do not have access to the credit card details of customers, and all payments for orders are approved by customers themselves.

Our order preparation processes are automated and we are unable to catch duplicate orders unless alerted by customers. We cannot guarantee that we will read the request to cancel a duplicate order prior to that order being dispatched as we are trying to process all orders as fast as we can at the same time as we read and answer contact inquiries as fast as we can.  If we do suspect a duplicate order, we will contact the cutomer before processing.

 

Method of Refund

If a refund is due, it will be made in accordance with our policies and directly to the credit card that was used for the purchase or to the PayPal account that was used for the purchase.

 

Delivery

We always strive to achieve best practice and as such have chosen to align ourselves with particular reputable and proven delivery systems. However, once an order is dispatched from our premises we are not responsible for any delivery delays.

It is the customers responsibility to ensure correct shipping/delivery details are provided to Skinnys through this web site. If we are required to re-ship orders, because incorrect details are provided, any costs associated with re-shipping of such orders are the customers responsibility.

The delivery fee is automated through Australia Post - should the incorrect delivery/packing fee be charged via the website, Skinnys will contact the prospective buyer before shipping the product requesting the correct delivery fee to be paid before shipment.  Should the buyer have been overcharged they will automatically be refunded any fees overcharged and the product will be shipped without delay.

All delivery times/dates provided are approximate estimates only and are given from the date of the dispatch, not from the order date. All delivery times/dates provided are estimates only and are at the discretion of the postal system providers.

Without limiting the operation of any other policy herein, we will not accept liability for any loss or damage arising from a late delivery. Without limiting the operation of any other policy herein, you agree that late delivery either through post or processing time does not constitute a failure on our part, and does not entitle you to cancellation of an order.

Business Hours of Operation

Our business hours of operation are: Monday - Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm* (*Australian Eastern Daylight), excluding public holidays. The CONTACT page of this website is not attended on weekends and public holidays (Australian time).

 

Packaging of Parcels

We do try to minimise any such charges for our customers and we use very tough, but lightweight packaging. Orders of just a couple of items are usually packed in tough postal bags, multiple item orders could be packed in boxes.

 

Payment Method

You can pay for your order using VISA, MasterCard or American Express credit cards through a Secure Credit Card payment facility or by credit cards, debit cards* or by bank transfer through the Secure PayPal payment facility. (*Debit cards are accepted, if they have a Visa or MasterCard logo.)

The Secure Credit Card payment takes place through a secure internet payment service provided by MasterCard and Australia's largest secure online payment provider - Dialect Payment Technologies, who's client list is spanning MasterCard and American Express, major global Banks, Airlines and International Media conglomerates. The payment process is quick and simple and no registration required. Dialect's Payment system is secure - it uses 168 bit SSL high-grade encryption and utilises the best commercially available technology and procedures to protect the security of your online transactions. Your credit card and personal details are encrypted before they are transmitted over the internet. We do not have access to your credit card details, the Dialect Solutions secure payment system debits your credit card at the time of your order and sends us an approval of payment and our system generates an order that we then process. This system is far more secure then receiving your credit card details directly as MasterCard and Dialect Solutions online security arrangements are far superior.

The Secure PayPal payment takes place through a secure internet payment service provided by PayPal, the world's largest online payment provider.

This Payment Method policy applies to all orders, including orders of custom made products where the processing time may be longer than usual. Some payments may be subject to ID verification which requires the credit card holder to complete and return (by email or fax) a Payment Authorisation form.

 

Response to Inquiries

We make every effort to answer contact inquires we receive as fast as we can and we try to process all orders we receive as fast as we can. As we receive many contact inquires we cannot guarantee an immediate response to the contact inquiry. An order may be already processed and shipped at the time we have read and responded to the email inquiry about that order.

We usually answer contact inquires during our normal hours of operation, which are: Monday - Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm* (*Australian Eastern Daylight time). The CONTACT page of this website is not attended on weekends and public holidays (Australian time).

From time to time our email response to a contact inquiry may not reach the addressee of that inquiry. That may happen due to many factors, including the incorrect email address supplied by the addressee, email box of the addressee being too full to accept our response, the addressee's mail server settings preventing our response from reaching the addressee or placing our response into the Bulk mail folder.

 

Confirmation Emails

Our website auto-generates and sends confirmation email to the email address provided in the order after payment for that order has been made successfully. Our website also auto-generates and sends confirmation email to the email address provided in the order after an order has been processed and dispatched.

We cannot guarantee that the order confirmation email or the shipping confirmation email will reach the addressee of that confirmation email, as from time to time our auto-generated confirmation email may not reach the addressee of that email. That may happen due to many factors, including the incorrect email address supplied in the order, email box of the addressee being too full to accept our confirmation email, the addressee's mail server settings preventing our confirmation email from reaching the addressee or placing our confirmation email into the Bulk mail folder.

We do not receive customer replies to our auto-generated messages, such as order confirmation emails or shipping confirmation emails. We do state on our auto-generated messages that a reply to such messages will not reach us  To contact us via e-mail please select the 'contact us' option on our website.

 

Additional Discounts and Coupon Codes

From time to time we offer Additional Discounts on some of our products. When offered, Additional Discount is calculated on purchase price of the least expensive Item in the Shopping Cart. Only items from the same order apply for Additional Discount, if it is applicable. Any Special Offers, when more than one product is offered for a single purchase price, are treated as a single Item when added to the Shopping Cart, no matter how many products are in the Special Offer.

From time to time we issue Coupon Codes that provide extra discounts on some of our products. Coupon Code Discounts are calculated on top of other Additional Discounts, if Additional Discounts are applicable. The calculation of discounts is automated and Coupon Code Discount is available only if the correct Coupon Code is submitted through the Shopping Cart during ordering before the Checkout. Coupon Code Discounts are not retrospective and cannot be applied to orders which were placed without application of the Coupon Code. Although some Coupon Codes can be used many times, only one Coupon Code can be used per any one order.

Shipping costs are excluded from Additional Discounts and Coupon Code Discounts.
