Shipping - Australian Customers
Shipping charges for all Australian orders are a flat rate of $14.90 plus GST. However, for orders weighing under 1kg, Silverstone will at its discretion charge a relevant fee. Once your order reaches $500 (before GST and postage) in value, all shipping charges are waived.
These shipping charges are uniform Australia-wide and in many cases represent only a fraction of the actual freight charge.
All parcels shipped via Australia Post will have a red "Do Not Safe Drop" sticker placed on the label unless otherwise requested by you. If you prefer to have your parcel left at your front door, or left in a specific place by the Australia Post contractor - please let us know in the comments box on the postage page. Silverstone will not be responsible for your parcel if you have requested that it not be safe dropped.
In order to make your shopping as easy as possible on checkout page, you will be required to nominate a method of payment, i.e., account holders, direct deposit, credit card (which will be processed offline) or cheque payment. At present we do not offer PayPal but will look at this option if we receive the demand. Goods will be shipped by Australia Post but in some cases we may use, at our discretion, Fastway Couriers. For Direct Deposit customers, goods will be sent as soon as funds are received into our account and have been cleared. For account customers - shipment will not take effect until all past due accounts are paid up to date.
Shipping - International Orders
As our shopping cart is set up for Australian GST, we suggest you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an International Catalogue/price list. The only method of payment for your order will be Telegraphic Transfer or Paypal and your shipping charges will be calculated offline. If you opt to pay with Paypal we will draw up a Paypal invoice and forward it to your email address. We will email you with the total of your order including shipping charges. All International orders will be forwarded via Australia Post using Express Post International. Please visit http://www1.auspost.com.au/international/ for rates to your country.
Be Aware and check with your Government Authorities before ordering
products such as smudge sticks, resins and herbs from us. Some countries have stringent LAWS on importing these goods. Silverstone will not
be held responsible if authorities in your country seizes goods ordered
by you from us.

Normal delivery times are: NSW 1-3 days, Victoria and South to Mid Queensland 3-5 days, South Australia 4-5 days, North Queensland and Tasminia 4-7 days, WA and NT 5-7 days. International varies - please send email and we will estimate delivery time for you. In relation to Express Post - please note that Silverstone Incense Traders are in a NSW country area and Australia Post will give no guarantee of parcels being delivered "next day". Our experience indicates that most "Express" parcels we send will be delivered in a similar time frame as Regular Post parcels. Some areas of the Gold Coast, Brisbane, and lower north coast areas of NSW will generally take overnight.
Out Of Stock Items
Whilst we make every effort to carry ample stock of all products at all times, it is sometimes impossible to predict demand which can at times lead to items being out of stock for a short period of time. Most items are usually on order from the distributor and stocks are generally replenished daily. So in these rare circumstances we will endeavour to despatch your order in under two days from the date of purchase. If we are out of stock of an item and you have made payment for that item a credit will be generated towards your account.
