Shipping & Delivery
We offer 4 convenient methods of delivery from our headquarters in Sydney, postcode 2019.
- Australia Post eParcel Service - Safe Drop at a flat rate of only $6.95 for 2 - 6 business day delivery from despatch of ready goods. Country regions will vary and could take up to 10 business days for delivery. Price includes handling*. Australia Post's new service "SAFE DROP" means that they will always attempt to leave the parcel at a nominated safe spot at the address even if a signature is not collected (you may enter instructions relevant to your address in the comments box during the checkout). All orders that select "Standard Shipping" are defaulted to "safe drop" delivery. Once your parcel is collected by Australia Post at our warehouse you will receive a tracking ID via the email entered during the checkout process here at schoolbags.com.au—please ensure you enter a valid email address that you have frequent access to when checking out. You can use the email that Australia Post will send you to change your delivery method to "signature only", to add instructions for the delivery or to track the progress of your delivery—all changes made from the date your order is despatched are a conversation between you (the customer) and Australia Post that is not mediated by Harlequin School Bags in any way. Please note that we do not ship to hotels or temporary addresses.

Despatch time for 'non-personalised' products
For Harlequin's array of non-personalised, stocked items and school bags, Harley's Angels will pick 'n' pack all your chosen goodies and despatch them within 3 - 5 days.
Out of stock items
We update our site's product availability continually. However, in some very rare instances another customer may have selected to purchase the same item as you at the same time. If this happens, we will notify you within 2 business days that we will not be able to deliver the goods in the usual delivery period. If it is an item that we cannot re-order – we will give you a refund immediately; if it is an item we can re-order – we will inform you of the new delivery time frame and give you the choice of waiting or receiving a refund.
