Cancellation of Orders

Orders placed on a business day before 11.00am (Sydney, Australia time) are usually processed that same day and shipped within 24 hours. If contact is made prior to this cut-off time we will endeavour to cancel the order but once dispatched we are unable to recall or cancel an order.

Your order may also be cancelled or delayed by The LBD if the issuer of your payment card/method is unable to authorise payment &/or clear funds & we will not be liable for any delay in dispatch or non-delivery.

The LBD may cancel your order if due to any reason including unforeseen demand we are unable to provide you with the Products or Size you have ordered. We will contact you should this occur.

You will not be entitled to claim any additional amounts or seek compensation for any loss, expense or damage which may result from such cancellation.

Exchanges

In the case of items being exchanged, no extra shipping charges will be charged within Australia (with the exception of Express Post & Want It Now) for the first exchange for full priced items but please allow for up to 10 working days.  If for whatever reason a further exchange is required we will pass on the cost of additional postage – options starting at AUS$10 for standard Australia Post shipping Australia wide. Sale items will incur an additional AUS$10 reshipping charge.

For international refunds/ exchanges, freight, customs duties & sales taxes are non-refundable & additional postage costs to resend will apply.
