Postage Information - Australia Only 

Majority of our orders are sent using Australia Post eParcel and are:

  • Uniquely barcoded on every parcel/order
  • Trackable online via your order ID
  • Allows you to add up to 22kg in weight per parcel 

If no-one is home to sign a card is left to collect your order from your local post office...... OR you may choose to give an authority to leave (eg. Please leave at front door next to pot plant).


If needed, we will use other couriers due to size of your order, your location or we may be shipping direct from supplier to speed up delivery times and save costs.

Shipping fees include net weight of product/s and all materials used to package the item/s (being total Gross weight). All prices are GST inclusive.

EParcel postage fees vary on items over 500grms (per kilo charges apply on top of base rate based on your location), items under 500grms have a flat rate of $9.00 within Australia only. Online Pet Cart reserves the right to change prices for delivery at any time.

If your order exceeds the weight of 22kg using eParcel, an additional base rate will apply. For example, your order weighs 26kg, for a Brisbane or Gold Coast customer only, this would then cost a total of $21 for delivery. $10.50 for the first 22kg plus $10.50 for next 4kg but remember you may go up to 22kg for the second parcel. For some products example 3 x 12kg bags we will needs to send in 3 parcels... But we have you covered to save you doing multiple orders.

Any lost or damaged orders that you as the customer has choosen not to pay for insurance is at the customers risk and all liablilities are passed onto the customer from time of dispatch from Online Pet Cart.

If no one is present when Australia Post eParcel attempts delivery they will either leave your consignment in a safe place, or leave a calling card and make the consignment available for collection from a nearby Australia Post retail outlet, according to your preference.
