Returns and Exchanges

At Heinemann, we want to take the hassle out of your day with our no fuss return or exchange policy. Please ensure to retain your receipt (or proof of purchase) for ease of returns.

Reasons for Return

1. Faulty

You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure of an item. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. If the failure is minor, we reserve our right to offer to repair only and not offer a refund or returns card.

Many items will come with an additional manufacturer’s warranty as indicated in the documentation provided with the relevant goods. Should you wish to make any claim under a manufacturer’s warranty, we recommend that you do so directly to the relevant manufacturer. Heinemann Australia will gladly assist to provide supplier contact information and claim advice.
In case you cannot access to the supplier easily, you can contact the Heinemann Customer Service Team who can share supplier details with you, alternatively a courier can be arranged to send your faulty product back to the supplier for repair.

2. Change of Mind

Heinemann will offer you a refund or exchange for most purchases (some exclusions apply) within 30 days of purchase, provided that:
Item(s) is returned within 30 days of purchase, together with proof of purchase. 
Item(s) is in their unused original condition, with all tags and the security seal still attached and any special packaging and accessories included
Incomplete, damaged, worn or altered items cannot be accepted.
High Value Watches/Jewellery/Leather Goods
For change of mind items over $1000, they will need to be sent back to the supplier for authentication purposes before a refund is processed. 
This can be achieved by contacting the Heinemann Customer Service Team. Alternatively, if returned in-store, a Manager will be able to fill in a Returns Form and supply you with a duplicate copy for your records. The item will then be forwarded to the supplier. Once the supplier has confirmed authenticity, a refund will be processed to you by our Customer Service Team.
Please be informed that customers returning items due to change of mind are responsible for any freight costs associated with returning the item to us including any currency conversion and local and/or international taxes.
In the event of a refund due to change of mind, additional charges may apply for warranty card replacement (for watches only).

Excluded Items (for a change of mind return):

Gift cards and discounted and clearance items.

Swimwear, earrings and mascara cannot be returned or exchanged due to hygiene reasons.


3. Sunglasses

Refunds cannot be processed for faulty sunglasses in store.

Customers can directly get in touch with the supplier for faulty sunglasses to be repaired. Where the supplier cannot be contacted, sunglasses can be taken to an Optometrist and have the sunglasses fixed. Once the sunglasses have been repaired, send the invoice to the Heinemann Customer Service Team and we will reimburse the invoice.

Customers can get in touch with the Heinemann Customer Service Team if they do not have access to the supplier. Heinemann Customer Service can organise a courier for customers to send their faulty product(s) back to the vendor for repair.


4. Replacements and Exchange

Please be informed replacements are offered in our stores only when you are travelling. Due to duty-free regulations, replacements and exchanges cannot be performed if you are not present in store.


5. Incorrect or wrongly described goods

Should you believe an item is incorrect or wrongly described, please contact our Customer Service Team for assessment of your claim.
