Shipping and Returns
Clients within Australia will receive Premium Express Delivery on all orders. For remote locations Australia-wide, please contact RATIONALE HQ for delivery information.
International Clients enjoy a flat-fee delivery of $20 to almost anywhere in the world. If your country does not appear on the drop-down menu at Checkout, please contact us for assistance.
For local and international orders, a signature is required upon delivery. If you, or someone receiving the order on your behalf, will not be available to sign at your nominated address between 9am - 5pm on a local business day, please provide an alternate address that we can deliver to (i.e. work address or PO Box).
If no one is available to sign for the delivery, a calling card will be left by the post/courier service, and you will need to collect your order from the nearest post office. Should the order be returned to us, you may be charged for re-delivery.
Orders delivered outside of Australia may be liable for any local customs duty, import taxes or costs due on your purchase. These are decided on a case-by-case basis by your government at the point of entry to your country. In accordance with Australian export regulations, we are required to declare the exact value and description of all items included in the order.
Click & Collect
We are delighted to now offer Click and Collect from all Australian Flagships (excluding David Jones Sydney), with same day collection available for online orders placed before 1pm.
Same Day Delivery
Order before 1pm and receive your order by 6pm the same day for orders within Australia (Metro area) for a flat-fee of $25. This service is available between Monday - Friday, and orders placed after 1pm on weekends will be delivered on the next business day.
Please ensure there is someone available to receive your delivery during this time, as our couriers will only leave your RATIONALE order if you have provided Authority to Leave in the check out notes and it is safe to do so. RATIONALE cannot be held responsible for any loss incurred if Authority to Leave has been provided and our courier has proof of delivery. If you are unavailable to receive your Same Day Delivery order from RATIONALE, you will receive information on collection options from a RATIONALE Flagship. If you require us to reattempt delivery, you may be charged a redelivery fee.
