By accessing, viewing and using this Website, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions (Terms).
We reserve the right to change these Terms at any time without any prior notice and you will be taken to have accepted any change by continuing to use this Website.
In these Terms:
- ‘Website’ refers to the website located at www.finedesignmarketplace.com.au, any future URLs that we may register and links to this Website; and
- ‘Good’ or ‘Goods’ refers to any items that are displayed on our Website and that you have offered to purchase.

Buying Goods on our Website
Our Website is an online platform to facilitate the sell and purchase of various products. On our Website, Sellers can list their Goods for sale and you can browse, select, order and purchase Goods that are displayed on this Website.
Any order placed through our Website is an offer by you to the Seller to purchase a particular Good or Goods in accordance with this Terms. If the Seller accepts your offer, then an agreement is formed between you and the Seller for that particular Good or Goods. We will notify you via email that the Seller has accepted your order. Further, the Sellers reserve the right to accept or reject an order you make using our Website for any reason.
Since we only serve as an agent between you and the Seller, we are not part of any agreement between you and the Seller.
Creating an account on our website
To purchase Goods on our website, you can either create an account with us or checkout as a guest. If you wish to create an account with us, then please visit the registration link to do so.
You must not disclose your account login details to anyone. If you become aware of misuse of your account by any person or if your account details are leaked, please notify us as soon as possible. Otherwise, we will continue to assume that you are using the website and that you are solely responsible for any use.
All payments must be made in full prior to delivery of the Goods.
We accept payments through both credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and AMEX only) and PayPal. We reserve the right to change our mode of payment at any time.
To the extent permitted by law, we will not be held liable and responsible for any damages or consequential loss (whether direct or indirect) suffered by you as a result of any credit card fraud or unauthorised access to a PayPal account.
We will not be held liable or responsible for any additional charges imposed by your credit card provider or bank, especially in the case where your purchase involves foreign exchange transactions.
If your payment is not received in full or is declined by your bank, credit card issuer or Paypal, we will not hold the Goods against your order.
All prices on our Website are listed in Australian Dollars.
By placing an order, you agree to pay the stated price (plus any applicable shipping and handling charges) in Australian Dollars for all orders. You agree to pay any additional charges or taxes incurred (including any custom duties) if applicable to the sale or delivery of the Goods.
The Seller reserves the right to change the prices of their Goods at any time without notice to you.
Repairs, refunds and replacements
If the Goods are damaged or not of acceptable quality, you may have rights under: · Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (the Australian Consumer Law); and/or · Other consumer laws applying in each Australian State or Territory;
Australian Consumer Law
If there is a minor problem with your Goods (as defined in the Australian Consumer Law) the Seller may repair the Goods instead of offering you a replacement or a refund. If there is a major problem with the Goods, a refund or a replacement may be available.
Unless we or the Seller are required to do so under the Australian Consumer Law, you will be responsible for the costs of returning the Goods to the Seller. Please use a trackable or signed-for delivery service when returning the Goods.
We invite you to notify the Seller of any damaged Goods as soon as possible. If you would like to return an item, please first contact the Seller directly via the order message centre option. If you are not satisfied with the outcome through speaking with the Seller you may escalate your request to our support team via the "dispute claim" option of the order message.
Unfortunately, we or our Sellers are unable to provide a refund for the following products: personalised items, perfumes, body, hand, arms or leg cream, made-to-order furniture, undergarments, earrings for pierced ears and makeup items that have been used or opened.
All items must be returned within 10 days from the date you receive the Goods and must be shipped by the original purchaser. Further, all items must be returned to the Seller in their original packaging complete with any accessories. If the aforementioned conditions are not met, the Seller reserves the right to deny a return.
If you have damaged the Goods yourself, or you have failed to take proper care of the Goods the Seller may not be able to provide you with a repair, refund or replacement.
However, you may still be able to contact the Seller to arrange a repair or replacement. The cost of any repair or replacement will be borne by you. Further, the arrangement for any repair or replacement shall be between you and the Seller only and we are or will not be a party to this arrangement.
In addition to any of your consumer rights, if you have changed your mind about your purchase, our Sellers will not be able to offer you a refund or exchange. However, you may be able to contact the Seller directly and arrange an exchange on your own.
Delivery process and times
While all effort is made to ensure that Goods purchased from our Website will be processed by the Seller within 2 – 7 business days of receiving your order, we or the Seller cannot guarantee processing times. The processing times for Made to Order items can be longer than usual. You will be notified of the processing times at checkout and these times will appear on the order receipt.
Our Sellers generally use third party delivery companies to delivery your order. By placing an order for Goods you agree that your details, such as name, contact numbers, delivery address, will be passed to those third parties. When the Sellers fulfil your order, they will provide you with a tracking number so that you can track the delivery of your order.
Further, you agree that notwithstanding anything in these Terms, we or our Sellers are not liable with respect to any loss, damage, cost or expense you or any third party suffers as a result of a change in delivery times or delay in delivery.
If you ask for the Good to be left at a delivery address, we or our Sellers are not responsible for loss, damage or theft of Goods once the Goods are delivered to that address. Some people may also prefer to have their Goods shipped to a business address as an additional precaution.
Further, if you require Goods that you have ordered to be redirected to an address other than your original order address, our Sellers may charge you a reasonable fee for doing this.
We provide free shipping on all orders in Australia.
Our Sellers reserve the right to cancel, at any time before delivery if they suspect that you are acting fraudulently (for example using a credit card without the owner’s permission) or in breach of this Terms. To the extent permitted by law, our Sellers reserve the right to cancel an order if there has been a genuine error in listing the price of the Goods or Goods’ description.
If there are any delays in shipping your order, our Sellers will contact you as soon as possible and will let you know about the revised timeline. If this happens, then you may at your own discretion cancel the order at any time before the Seller ships the Goods. You can also cancel an order if you have reasons to believe that the Seller has breached this Terms.
