Do you have retail stores from where I can purchase your products?
We are an online store, so we unfortunately do not have any retail stores in any country.
*** Post-Sales ***
I have not received an email confirmation of my order, what's wrong?It is possible an incorrect email address was used when registering. It is also possible that the email may be in your junk or spam box.
Some email services also implement a whitelist policy which blocks emails from unrecognized addresses. Our order confirmation emails are sent from donotreply [at] altoedge.com, please ensure this is added to your whitelist filter.
When will I receive my order?Please refer to our shipping services page for a list of estimated delivery times for each shipping service.
Will there be additional customs charges on my order?
For all orders we ship internationally, our product charges do not include any customs duties and taxes applicable to your country.
It is possible that additional charges may apply on the order, however we do not know what these charges will be. You will normally be notified by the shipping service should any extra charges be applicable. Some services may also deliver the goods to you and provide you with a customs invoice upon delivery.
AltoEdge does not take any responsibility for covering customs issues. If you are unsure whether you will be subject to taxes in your country, you should check with the Customs Regulations Authority in your country.
Does someone have to be available to sign for the package when delivered? What if there isn't?
If it is not possible to organize to have someone available to receive the package, or you are only available at a specific time, please state this in the delivery instructions in the 'Shipping Comments' box on the Shipping Page when checking out your order.
You should specify where you require the order to be left (e.g. bench on front porch), and please designate this by writing "Authority To Leave Without Proof Of Delivery Signature". Otherwise, the courier may leave you a note informing you of the delivery attempt and how you might be able to collect your order. Please note that an additional delivery fee may apply for any order which cannot be successfully delivered as per instructions in the first instance.
My order hasn't been delivered yet? Where is it?
Please refer to our shipping services page for a list of estimated delivery times for each shipping service. If the estimated delivery time has elapsed and you still have not received your product, you should contact us to discuss the issue further.
If I have paid for my order by credit card, how can I identify this order on my credit card statement?
You should look for an entry on your statement from AltoEdge. The charge will be in Australian Dollars. See the question below.
My credit card statement shows a charge from AltoEdge in Australian Dollars, along with a currency conversion fee - what does this mean?
When you check out your order through our website, on the page where you entered in your credit payment details (immediately below the "Pay By Credit Card" button), there was a message indicating that our banking system is based in Australia.
The price you are charged on your credit card will be in Australian Dollars, and there may be a small price difference on the quoted order price due to the exchange rate used by our Australian banking gateway, as well as your own bank charging you for an international transaction.
