WHY DO WE ASK FOR I.D?

Due to licensing laws you must be over 18 years of age in order to place and receive a delivery. Your order will not be left with persons under the age of 18 years (proof of age may be required) and our carriers will use their best endeavours to verify ID.

GoodDrop.com.au 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.

For further information regarding liquor licensing please refer to our Liability & Other Legal page.

We may ask you to provide additional details or require you to confirm your details to enable us to process any orders placed by you on GoodDrop.com.au.

AUTHORITY TO LEAVE – Safe Drop unavailable

Due to the nature of our goods, 'Authority To Leave or Safe Drop is not allowed. Any requests made at the time of order will be removed prior to shipping. If an Authority to Leave request is made directly with the courier post shipment GoodDrop.com.au will not accept any liability for lost, damaged or missing items at your nominated address

If you are not home at the time of delivery, a calling card will advise the next steps to collect your order. If you fail to collect your goods from one of our delivery partners, the items will be returned to our warehouse. You will be responsible for any charges incurred in re-delivering the products to you. Please see return to sender for details.

Once an order has left our warehouse and is in-transit to you, a $20 fee is incurred for any parcels returned to sender. This fee is passed onto the customer when;

  • the delivery address has been incorrectly entered by the customer
  • a parcel is undelivered and has not been collected from the Post Office within 5 business days
  • you don't think the parcel will reach you in time and want to return it for a refund

If your order has been returned to our warehouse and you want the item re-sent to you, you will need to pay the cost of the additional postage in addition to the RTS fee. If you request a refund, then your refund amount will be less the RTS fee.

TRACKING

Once your order has been dispatched you will receive an auto-generated email advising your tracking number with a link to track your delivery. You will also receive email updates regarding the progress of your delivery from both GoodDrop and Australia Post.

It may take up to 48 hours for Australia Post to activate tracking and then you will be able to see live tracking with an estimated delivery date on the Australia Post tracking page.

Due to the volume of orders being dispatched, Australia Post do a bulk collection from our warehouse.

If the collection is large, then it may not be scanned until it is on-board for delivery. Please be patient and wait until the estimated transit time provided by Australia Post has passed before contacting us, as your order is in transit to you, it just may not have live tracking until it is on-board for delivery.
