You place an order with Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd by selecting products and pressing the "purchase now" button on the checkout page. Please check your order prior to completing check-out as orders will be considered final and no additions or subtractions can be made once payment has been received in full. Once an order has been placed we are unable to accept cancellations and alterations between transmission of the order and processing of the order. Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd reserves the right to accept or reject an order for any reason including without limitation, unavailability of product; an error in the price, image or the product description; or error in your order.

Orders are deemed accepted by Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd upon Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd acknowledging such order or failing to reject such order within 14 days.
Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd uses its best endeavours to ensure products ordered are available for delivery, and in most cases will notify you where a product is unavailable prior to you completing your order. However you acknowledge that in some cases this is not possible and Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd may need to reject an order you have placed for a product where Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd establishes that it is actually unavailable for delivery. In such cases Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd will refund in full all amounts you paid in respect of such unavailable product. Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd cannot provide backorders or rainchecks for products ordered online, and, where permitted by law, reserves the right to limit the sale of products to reasonable or normal household quantities.

Variation of Products and Price
Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd may vary the prices on this website at any time, and prices are subject to change until you have paid for the products in full. Products and their inclusions are outlined in the item description. The item description and item title need to be read together and not in isolation of each other.
Prices offered on www.ballmason.com.au may vary from prices offered on other third party websites or in our physical store.
All items are supplied from our warehouse: please note that jars and lids supplied are not sterilised and must be cleaned prior to use for food purposes. Products may have some warehouse dust which is easily removed using approved cleaning processes. Specifically we do not supply our lids pre-sterilised. Do not clean lids in a dishwasher.
Delivery terms included delivery areas, delivery costs and estimated delivery times are contained in Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd's Delivery Policy published on this website, and the Delivery Policy is expressly incorporated in these Purchase Terms. Please note that to purchase products, your delivery address must be within a suburb where Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd provides delivery. Where goods are sent via courier, you may be required to sign that the goods have been received in good condition, unless you have indicated on your order that the delivery can be left if the premises are unattended. You must make reasonable efforts to check your delivery before signing for the delvery. If you subsequently find that the goods are not in good condition, Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd will only take responsibility for the goods to the extent that is required under product warranty. Risk in the products passes to you upon delivery to your nominated delivery address, and title passes upon payment for the products in full.
Where you have authorised for your goods to be left if you are unavailable to sign for the goods, we will pass on these instructions to the relevant delivery agency. There is no onus on the delivery agency to adhere to these instructions and at their discretion the goods may be returned to the nearest depot in the case of noone being available to sign for goods. In these instances, Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd will not cover redelivery fees to your nominated address or provide alternative redelivery except where a redelivery fee is agreed and paid.
If you have chosen insured shipping the insurance covers the cost of the lost or damaged items (excluding freight) and does not cover return freight if you elect to have a replacement rather than compensation for your loss. Return shipping costs must be paid before a replacement item is sent.
Ball Mason Australia will not be responsible for any customs or duties payable on goods shipped internationally and will not refund orders where such payment is refused requiring that the goods be abandoned.
Free and flat rate Shipping advertised on this website only applies on this website and not to third party websites. Free / Flat rate shipping is within Australia only.
Restrictions apply to free and flat rate shipping, including the areas covered and a maximum order weight.
Return claims (including for replacement products, refunds or credits) are detailed in Ball Mason Australia Pty Ltd's Returns Policy published on this website, and the Returns Policy is expressly incorporated in these Purchase Terms. Please refer to this policy to determine your entitlement to a return, and the process that you need to follow.
At Ball Mason Australia, we want our customers to be completely satisfied with their purchase and aim to remedy any warranty faults as quickly as possible.
Please familiarise yourself with our policy on refunds, returns and repairs and your rights under the Australian Consumer Law.
We also recommend you immediately inspect any goods that we deliver to you to ensure you are completely satisfied with the goods, including that the goods are of acceptable quality, and match the description we have provided to you.
Change of Mind
Please choose carefully as refunds are not normally provided where you have simply changed your mind, made a wrong selection or found the goods cheaper elsewhere. Please preview any orders before adding them to your shopping cart and proceeding with your order. In some circumstances we will accept exchanges provided the goods are returned in pristine condition with their original packaging with freight paid by the purchaser. A 20% restocking fee will be applicable.
In some circumstances you may be permitted to amend an existing order if it has not been packed. In this instance a $5.50 administration fee will apply. Refunds will not be given in any circumstances for change of mind but we reserve the right to offer a store credit for use against future orders.
Goods Damaged in Transit
In the rare case that any goods arrive damaged, please contact us as soon as possible. Please create a ticket by clicking on the "Submit Ticket" link on the top of any page; login and describe what has happened and attach photo of the damage. Provided you have purchased transit insurance we can offer options for replacement like new items sent, refund or store credit. Please NOTE that items sent as replacements under insurance are not insured so if the replacement items also break there is no further recourse against Ball Mason Australia.
Refunds will be made via the method of payment you used to make your online purchase. Refunds will normally be processed within seven (7) days.
If goods must be returned to Ozfarmer for assessment, you are responsible for the delivery charges to have the product returned to us. We recommend using a delivery method that allows tracking of your shipment to ensure that your product reaches us.
If we assess that the goods are covered by a manufacturer’s warranty and are able to be repaired or replaced, Ball Mason Australia will meet the cost of returning the goods to you.
Returns and Repairs
Goods must be returned within a reasonable time. This timeframe may vary from product to product and may depend on the type of product you purchased and the price you paid.
Goods returned for repair will be assessed and/or repaired within a reasonable time. You may be provided with an indicative repair time, which time may vary due to reasons beyond ours or the repairer’s reasonable control, such as part availability and incorrect fault description.
You may be required to pay labour, assessment and/or freight fees, such as where goods are assessed to have been damaged by misuse or accident, or where your rights under the Australian Consumer Law or any manufacturer’s warranty do not apply. We may provide you with an indicative fee, which fee may vary due to reasons beyond our control.
In some circumstances, goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods.
Where goods are replaced under warranty, the warranty period is not renewed but is deemed to start from the original purchase date.
