Refund and Exchange Policy
Choosing baby goods can be a gruelling decision; at BabyO we will endeavour to work towards a successful resolution for both parties when issues arise.
BabyO will not refund if you simply have changed your mind. However if an item delivered is faulty, BabyO will attempt to repair and/or replace the faulty item before offering a credit note or refund of the purchase price. Customers must produce proof of purchase when requesting a refund otherwise the decision to give you a refund, credit note, or exchange is at the discretion of BabyO. You may be entitled to a credit, exchange or refund (less postage) where goods described are: significantly different, is the incorrect item, or does not perform as advertised or where otherwise required by law. Please note: if items are faulty or damaged in any way you must notify us within 24 hours of delivery of goods.
All products have a manufactures warranty and they and BabyO reserve the right to inspect and assess any such proclaimed fault or damage and ask for proof of purchase. We may be required to send your purchased item to the manufacturer for assessment of the product in question and determine whether you are entitled to have it repaired, exchanged or refunded. This is at the manufactures discretion and not BabyO. BabyO will not refund you if the manufacturer chooses to repair or exchange the product. If the manufacturer has attempted to repair and/or exchange the product but it is still not in complete working order then you will be entitled to a refund of the full purchase price less postage.
Your warranty does not cover: misuse, accidental damage, normal wear and tear, inappropriate use for which the item was designed for or improper care of the product. If the product in question is not covered by warranty, then you will be required to pay for the postage or freight charges incurred in returning the goods to be assessed or repaired. In addition if it is outside the warranty period, but you still wish to have it assessed or repaired additional charges may apply. We do not refund spare parts.
If you do change your mind in regards to a purchase, you may notify us within 2 weeks and as long as you have: proof of purchase, the item is in resale condition, in original packaging, tags attached and the item is unused, we will gladly offer you an exchange or credit note for the purchase price less postage (if you purchased online). If you do not have proof of purchase, BabyO at our discretion may exchange or issue a credit note if the item is in re-saleable condition as stated above. Note, we do not offer exchanges or refunds on furniture and special order items (items we do not usually carry in store or have placed the order on your behalf), sale items, spare parts, display stock or clearance lines.

HOW DO I START
Guests can obtain a gift list as follows:
AVAILABILITY OF GIFT ITEMS
BabyO cannot guarantee that all items will be available on the gift registry. In the event that an item, which has been purchased, is subject to delay or is not available, BabyO will contact you or the relevant guest who may:
Prices of goods may vary. If a customer creates a gift registry during a sale period, these prices are not fixed and will revert back to normal prices once the sale period ends.
We offer Free Gift Wrap for Registry Owners who select to "Pick up the Gifts from the store on behalf of the purchaser"
PURCHASING A GIFT IN-STORE
Items from the Gift Registry cannot be put on hold. We will only mark as ‘purchased’ the items that have been purchased on your Gift Registry.
PURCHASING GIFTS ELSEWHERE
If an item is purchased from another store (i.e not BabyO or babyo.com.au), BabyO will not remove the item from the gift registry.
The gift registry owner can request that purchased items be left in-store or sent to their own address. However, Australian law states that the item remains the property of the purchaser; and as such we will deliver items in accordance with the purchaser's request. Goods are delivered via Australia Post, Couriers Please or Aramex to the purchaser or the registry owner. Every online purchase (not picked up in store) incurs delivery and handling charges. Goods bought in store can be held by BabyO in line with the registry owners request.
GIFT REGISTRY RETURNS
All Gift Registry purchases made either via online or in-store are registered against your Gift Registry. If an item is not registered in our system, exchange, refund or credit is not available. Returns are only accepted if: the item is in original packaging, un-opened, and returned within one week after the nominated date of the baby shower, christening or similar. No refunds are available.
BabyO requires that you provide your details at the time of purchase of your gift. You acknowledge that your name and items on your gift register are on a public website. Your personal information will not be given to third parties and is for the sole use of assisting in the administration of your registry and communication between the registry owner, people purchasing gifts and BabyO staff.
FAULTY or DEFECTIVE ITEM
If you wish to return an item that you believe is faulty, it may be necessary for the item to be returned to the manufacturer for assessment to determine whether or not you are entitled to an exchange, refund or repair. BabyO will, at all times, honour its obligations under the Australian Consumer Law. Please refer to our Refund and Exchange Policy above.
ONLINE PURCHASE END DATE
In correspondence with the registry owner we ask for an ‘event date’ to assist us with administration and making sure products arrive in a timely manner. BabyO will send a record of gifts and purchasers to the registry owner within 14 working days of the agreed event date provided we are supplied with the event date. We recommend that guests purchase gifts online at least 7 working days before the event (e.g. baby shower) to ensure the product can be delivered for the required date. We cannot guarantee the items will arrive for the scheduled event date.
Should any items throughout the Gift Registry period be discontinued or no longer available the item will be removed from your registry without notice.
