Expected Delivery Times Within Australia:
Divinebeginnings will post items on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Although I will always try to get your items to you as fast as is humanly possible, PLEASE allow 2-3 Days for your items to be packed and sent off. Divinebeginnings would not want you to be dissapointed because your item did not reach you on time! So please also consider any public Holidays as listed above! All in all allow yourself enough time for packages to reach you, as I cannot influence the speed of Australia post and cannot be held responsible for items not reaching you on time - due to Australia Post hold ups!
Generally it will take between 3-7 "Working" days for the following states:
QLD. / NSW. / VIC. / SA. / NT. / WA. / TAS.
Express Post: Generally is a next business day delivery. However Australia Post does not guarantee a next business day delivery for certain Post Codes! For precise details of postcodes served and guaranteed of next day business delivery ask at your post office or visit the Australia Post Website - austpost.com.au. Better to calculate a couple of days extra for delivery - just in case!
Postage Cost International: International buyers please note that I can often send you 4 or more items for the same postage cost! Simply leave your invoices marked as unpaid until you have received your final invoice so as to allow me, to further access your invoice and combine postage / items for you. Once you have received your final invoice you may mark your invoice as paid - as no further access is needed by me. If you are unsure in regard to weight of items and do not wish to go above a certain weight, then please do email me with the name of your country and the items and quantity you wish to purchase. For instance: nov14 x3 or toy22 x8 eg. country: USA, is all I need to know. These letters and numbers are found at the end of the title of any listing.

Insurance is optional so please know that if an item arrives broken due to transit, that no refund will be given. No items will ever leave here broken, as everything is checked thoroughly! Registered post includes insurance up to $100.00. If returning an item please ensure you enclose your username and reason for return, so I know who it is from!!
You may return the item within SEVEN business days of receipt. All the item/s need to be in their original condition, not worn/damaged or altered in any way. Ensuring safe return transit is the responsibility of the Buyer. Important: Your shipping costs will not be refunded for any reason. If you DON'T Agree with my return / refund policy please don't bid.

NB: Please put user ID or Postcode as referene when you deposit funds into my account not eBay item numbers! This is important when it comes to locating your items so if you want quick service... The more details the better.
! Please don't bid unless you intend to pay !
Combined Postage If bidding on more than one item, then please email me to let me know this is what you are doing. Once you have finished shopping simply click on the request total from seller tab, this will alert me to the fact that you would like me to send out your invoice. Please leave your invoice as UNPAID until you have finished all shopping & your final invoice has been sent out to you, otherwise combining items is not possible. Combining Postage will save the buyer quite a bit of money! If you are unsure as to weight and charges, please contact me - I am more than happy to send you a quote! All I need from you is the name of the item, how many you wish to purchase and the number in the title eg. toy5 or bra1 etc.aswell as your postcode or country. > See Quotes section above < As stated previously - any item at 20mm that is from 0g and up to 500g in weight, is deemed a small package by Aust post. Hence if you purchase an item that is 20mm but only weighs 2g or 50g - it is still charged as a small package. Hence pls. take Note! Postage is NOT based on cost of purchase, but on actual size and weight - as per Australia Post!
Paying via Pay Pal: All Australian bidders MUST have their items sent via Registered Mail or via Platimum Express Post.
Pick Up: Is Possible - However is By Appointment ONLY & correct cash is neccessary. Please also note that pick up is only possible on Monday to Friday and not on weekends, as I do not get to spend much time with my family during the week. Weekends and quality Family time is something rather sacred here :) If you wish to pick up, simply advise of the day and time that would be most suitable for you and we can take it from there:) I will then advise of address etc. Please do not just turn up at the front door without an appointment! Chances are I am not home or if "someone" is home they will not know anything about your purchases or where items are located!
Days are Mon to Friday
between the hours of 10.30am and 2.00pm (not including public holidays).
Correct cash payment is neccessary (I do not keep change here), and
pay pal is not accepted for pick up (no tracking number is available).
Location for pick up is Nerang
The client simply advises of the day and a time for pick up and we
go from there...
Non Paying Bidders: A reminder will be sent out to you on day3 of non payment. On day 5 a dispute will be opened by me. If I have not heard from you by day10 the dispute will be closed, I will not enter into any further communication with you and you will be reported to eBay by me. You will then receive a strike against your account. Please do not ask me to remove a strike from your account if you never bothered to contact me while the dispute was still open.
Please also be advised that a file is kept on all non paying bidders!
If you are experiencing financial difficulties or you are having other difficult and unexpected situations pop up then PLEASE message me ~ I am a very reasonable and flexible person, and I am sure we can come to some kind of agreement ~ However, if you do not contact me I am in the dark and cannot assist you further!
Late Paying clients and non paying bidders truly create a huge amount of unnessary work and therefore waste a lot of precious time ~ which would otherwise be spent on creating more listings, assisting clients and replying to questions! If you do not truly want the item then please do not buy it or bid on it - someone else may want it and you will not be wasting your or my time! Thank you!
