We aim to offer every customer the most reliable, flexible and cost-effective postage options through our preferred shipping partner, Australia Post. Postage rates will vary depending on item location, where you're located and the size and weight of your order. If you order multiple items from the same location, we'll combine postage to ensure you get the best rate possible. As a charity, we want to ensure that every cent from the sale of donated goods reaches those who need it most. For this reason, we do not offer free shipping on donated items.
Most items are dispatched within 1 working day of receiving payment via Australia Post. Parcel tracking is available online. If you're not available at the time of delivery, the courier will leave it at the front door, in your letterbox or it will be available for collection at your local Australia Post outlet. Delivery times vary depending on your location.
Collection is available in-store for most items. Pick up locations vary depending on where the item is listed from. This can be found under "Item location" in each listing. Please get in touch at least 24 hours prior to collection so we can ensure your item is ready. Collections are available between the hours of 10am-5pm Monday to Friday, and 10am-4pm on Saturday, excluding public holidays. Please ensure your order details (can be shown on your smartphone) are ready for assistance at the front shop counter. All items must be paid for in advance via PayPal. We cannot accept payment in-store.
We do not organise individual courier services for your purchases, however, we will endeavour to accommodate any courier arrangements you may require. You will need to arrange a suitable time for the collection of your item(s) as per the regular collection process. We will not accept responsibility for any damages incurred by the courier.
We will happily combine postage on items coming from the same location. If you wish to combine postage, please complete a "Combine Invoice" request through the checkout or get in touch with our Customer Service team. Items must be combined within 4 days of the first order.

By shopping at our eBay store, you're finding more than a bargain. You're contributing to something far greater, providing hope to those who need it most. All profits from the sale of items go towards The Salvation Army's life-changing community programs.
The items you see in our eBay store have been generously donated, by supporters like you, to our shops. To get the most amount of good from donations, we sometimes choose to sell them via our eBay store. Selected items are sent from our stores to our specialist Online Hub located in Noble Park, Victoria. Each item is individually listed and photographed by our incredible team of staff and volunteers. After you've purchased an item, our team will either package and dispatch the item straight to your doorstep or arrange for you to collect it.
We rely on the generosity of your donations, so please keep them coming. To join our amazing team of volunteers, please visit our website.
