Ordering online

1. How do I order goods from Blackmores Institute?

Sign up for membership or login to your Blackmores Institute user account.

Although rare, there can be some overlap between ordering an item and it going out of stock. If this occurs and your order has been placed, we will do our best to contact you to let you know of this issue.

All orders are managed by Australia Post. Successful orders will be shipped within one or two business days (Monday to Friday) as long as there are no issues. When your order has been collected from our warehouse, you will receive an email from Australia Post confirming that the order is on its way and will provide you with the tracking number. You can use this number to track your order on the Australia Post website https://m.auspost.com.au/view/tracking.

Unfortunately at this time we are unable to provide you with an alternative place to purchase our goods.

If your order does not arrive within the estimated time frame please contact Blackmores Institute HCP support via email: [email protected] quoting your 6 digit order number and your tracking number if you have it handy.

9. I know I’m not going to be home to sign for my order. What can I do?

We can ship to post office boxes. If you are not at home to receive your parcel, a card will be left so that you can pick it up from your closest post office. If you know you will not be home to receive the parcel, you may authorise Australia Post to leave the parcel at your home by ticking the “Authority to Leave” option at checkout. It is only recommended to select the authority to leave option if you believe it is a secure environment for the item to be left unattended.


Cancelling and Returns

1. What is your return policy?

We do not accept returns for simply changing your mind after purchase, unless we otherwise specify, such as where you cancel your order before we dispatch the goods, and we send you confirmation of the cancellation. Despite the above, nothing in these Terms of Purchase alter any rights you may have under the Australia Consumer Law. Please ensure you retain proof of purchase of purchasing goods from our Site and the goods in question if you are looking at returning your goods. For further details, please email [email protected] and ensure you have your 6 digit order number handy which was emailed to your nominated email upon successfully processing your order.
