Terms & Conditions
Fiji Christmas Delivery
Fiji Christmas Delivery orders close on 21st December as we are at capacity for Christmas deliveries and the couriers are closed over the Christmas period. We are closed from Friday 23rd to Tuesday 27th December. All late Christmas orders received from 21st December 2022 will be organised for dispatch when we reopen on Wednesday 28th December. Customers who change their minds after ordering who request a refund before dispatch will get the refund less the transaction fee charged by the Internet Payment Gateway provider (approx. 5 to 5.5%). Once an item has been organised for dispatch the order cannot be cancelled/refunded. We will be closed for New Years from 31st December to 3rd January 2023. Reopening on 4th January 2023.
Payment options and policy
You can pay for your lovely gifts from Fiji in 3 ways when placing an order:
- Debit / Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express)
- Bank Deposit (Fiji customers)
If you have any questions about how to pay, or have any issues when trying to make payment, please contact us here.
For items where the customer changes their mind after ordering and the item HAS NOT been dispatched, we will issue a refund less the Payment Gateway fee (5% to 5.5% depending on the currency) that was charged to us for the transaction. This fee is not refunded to us by the Payment Gateway, which is why it is not refunded to the customer. It is the cost of processing the original transaction and is non-refundable.
For items where the customer changes their mind after ordering and the item HAS been dispatched, it is not possible to give a refund less the Payment Gateway fee as the order has already been processed and dispatched - we have already done all the work to get your item dispatched. Therefore please be very careful when placing an order that you are happy with the item and estimated delivery date, as we do not issue refunds for items after dispatch if the customer changes their mind.
For damaged or defective items, My Fiji Store will issue a full refund or replace the item, we will discuss options with the customer to find the best solution. We want you to be happy with your Fiji-made gifts so let us know if there are any problems. We will issue a full refund for damaged or defective items, provided you let us know within 7 days of receiving the item and we will need photographic proof of the damage or defect.
Our aim is to send you beautiful Fiji-made gifts and products that you'll love and want to recommend to your friends. If there are any issues then please let us know and we'll do our best to fix them.
Shipping options and policy
We ship all over the world! We send parcels by air using Fiji’s ParcelPost service.
Wherever your location, we will try our very best to get My Fiji Store products to you! If for some reason your shipping location is not in the address list, get in touch with us here so that we can figure out the best way to ship to you.
It’s important to us that we send you your products as quickly as we can – we do not run on Fiji time when it comes to our customer’s satisfaction.
Please bear in mind that our products are made in the tropical islands of Fiji - which is probably a bit further away than you’re used to - so it takes a little bit longer for parcels to travel all they way across the ocean! That’s one of the things that make our products so special – made in paradise with natural, beautiful materials and brought to you from Fiji.
We aim to ship all orders within 36 hours of receiving them (aside from Sundays when Fiji postal services are shut!). For all orders received before 12pm Fiji time we will endeavor to get them in the post that day. Otherwise, your order will be shipped the following morning. The post in Fiji does not operate on Sunday’s, so orders received after 9am on Saturday will be shipped on Monday.
The majority of our parcels are trackable - the exception being Australia. Australia Post do not recognise Fiji tracking numbers so we're unable to provide tracking details for Australia. All other countries are trackable. If you have any queries then you can get in touch with us via email quoting your order reference.
