Don't be nervous about giving my credit card details online. Firstly, there’s nothing to worry about – we use military strength payment encryption to send your payment details directly to Commonwealth Bank, and we don’t see or store your details. Our payment gateway is SecurePay, an external company that manages the transmission of all payments.
What payment methods to we accept?
You can choose any of the following payment methods at the checkout when completing your order:
Is quick, easy & secure.
Shopping using your credit card with us is completely safe. As soon as you enter the checkout process, any information you submit is encrypted and sent through to our secure server.
Once you confirm your order, your payment is processed using Securepay’s 128-bit SSL secure payments gateway, using military-strength encryption to encode your information as it travels over the Internet. Your payment is professed in real time – similar to EFTPOS, where the transfer of funds takes place immediately – and you are immediately notified as to whether or not the payment has been successfully processed.
In fact, shopping with us is even safer than, say, giving your credit card to a waiter in a restaurant, because nobody ever sees your card number. We do not store or record your credit card information. When you enter the card details, they are encrypted and sent through to the banking network immediately. If the transaction is successful, we receive notification of your order, minus the card number.
Put it this way, we would happily use our own credit cards on this site, and would recommend it to our own families.
The charge will appear on your statement as “SALON FIRST”. Please note that our secure real-time credit card processing facilities will charge your card at the time the order is placed.
Should a refund be necessary, we will refund through our payment gateway provider SecurePay. We will not request your credit card information as funds will be refunded to the same card as originally purchased on. We will email you a receipt from SecurePay confirming the transaction.
If you are a new customer or ordering with details different to a previous order, you may be asked to complete our verification process.
We hate dealing with costly shipping fees as much as you do. That's why we are constantly checking and using the most efficient methods we can.

Postcodes outside this range will attract a delivery rate of $19.95 per order. Delivery time can be anywhere from 1-6 working days. If you live in a remote part of Australia, you may find that your order will attract additional delivery charges. We will notify you if this is the case.
All bulky orders (eg: Bulk Bed rolls) and/or heavy furniture items will attract additional freight charges. A Salon First team member will contact you to advise you of what these charges are on completion of your order being scan packed and at dispatch.
If you have not advised that you give 'AUTHORITY TO LEAVE' when your parcel is delivered and you are not home, you may incur an additional re-delivery fee. This fee is approximately $35.00 but will depend on the delivery location.Delivery time is 1-6 working days
An Authority to leave request is at YOUR risk, as there is no proof of delivery.
We highly recommend having it delivered to a business that is OPEN during normal hours, so a signature of delivery can be attained.
Note: We use different freight companies depending on your location. Some freight companies allow for an authority to leave to be requested, others do not. If we send your parcel via Australia post, we will, unless specified, allow for you the receiver to select how you want the parcel managed. This is via the Australia Post 'Safe Drop' notification. Please note that it is at the final discretion of the Australia Post driver whether a parcel is 'safe dropped' or not. If they do not feel the location is safe, or weather proof, they will not leave the parcel, but card it for collection at your local post office.
It is always best to have your parcel delivered to an address where someone will be available to receive it. A business address is good for this reason, but if you are having your parcel sent to work, remember to include your company’s name (and the department or level where you work).
We ship to all locations within Australia. Some of our products carry territory restrictions and you might find that you can not purchase certain items or we may advise you of these territory restrictsions when completing your order. In any event we will advise you as soon as possible.
What if my order hasn’t arrived in the estimated time?
If you’re waiting to receive your parcel and you think it should have arrived by now:
All transactions are settled in Australian Dollars ($AUD). Prices displayed on the site are inclusive of GST, which we have to charge on all orders to be shipped within Australia.
What happens if I have ordered the wrong items?
No problem, simply advise us within 7 days of receiving the goods. Send back the goods in resaleable condition (unopened and unused) and we will be happy to provide you with an exchange or store credit (freight charges not included). Returned items must be received by us in the same condition as you received them so please pack up any returned items carefully to ensure they arrive safely. We don't exchange or refund for change of mind purchases, so purchase wisely.
