For purchases in store, please see our In Store Returns Policy.
Please read the Returns Policy prior to placing your order as there are exceptions to this policy.
We stand by the products we carry at Simple Form and we are confident you will love your purchase too.

- order number
- details of what items you will be returning
2. Non-Refundable Shipping Charges
2.1. Original shipping charges are non-refundable.
2.2. Where items have been shipped to you under our Free Shipping Offer, our actual incurred shipping charge (or part thereof if part of the original order is being returned) will be deducted from your refund total. This amount will be advised when you lodge your intention to return an order.

3.1. Exceptions to our Change of Mind Returns policy apply in the following cases:
a. You have purchased reduced items or sale items, in which case, sales are final and are not eligible for return.
b. You have purchased furniture and lighting products, in which case, sales are final and are not eligible for a return. Therefore please choose these items carefully (right colour, right size, right finish etc).
c. You have purchased products that are not stocked items and need to be ordered in for you. These items are denoted by the allocation of a LEAD TIME on their product page or are products you have specifically requested we order in for you in writing.

4. Restocking Fee
4.1. If your item is eligible for return and you would like to return any of your goods under our change of mind returns policy, Simple Form reserves the right to charge up to a 20% restocking fee to cover admin costs and other processing fees that we have incurred in processing your original order and your return.
5. Handmade Items
5.1. Some of the items we stock are handmade and will have handmade characteristics. These are not defects or faults and their uniqueness is to be embraced. These characteristics cannot be used as the basis for a refund.
6. Return in saleable condition.
6.1. All items must be returned in all original re-sellable condition (unworn, unwashed, unaltered, unopened, unused, unassembled, undamaged and unmarked packaging & tags) for a refund or credit.
6.2. Missing and damaged boxes and missing accessories etc will not be accepted as a complete return. Please DO NOT attach postage labels and stamps onto a product's original packaging box. While we accept you can change your mind and return your unwanted products, we must ensure we can resell your item as brand new. It is a fair policy.
7. Preparing your item for return
7.1. When returning an item we ask you enclose a copy of the tax invoice you would have received with the order (or order confirmation email) and the returns form as proof of purchase. We ask that you complete the returns form and send the items back, making sure to clearly mark the RAN on the front of your parcel.
7.2. The item will remain your responsibility until it reaches us. Simple Form will not be liable for any lost or damaged items being returned to us by you. For your own peace of mind we recommend you carefully repackage your item to avoid any damage during transportation and consider using express post or registered post to track your item. Please retain proof of postage until we have confirmed your refund has been processed.
8. Processing of a return.
8.1. Once your returned purchase has undergone a quality control check, our store team members will determine whether a refund or exchange will be offered in accordance with our Refund Policy. Please allow 7-14 business days from the time we receive your order for your return to be processed.
8.2. We will notify you via email once your return has been processed and we will then refund your item at the purchase price, minus any incurred shipping costs and any processing fees, to the original method of payment.
8.3. Simple Form has the right to refuse returned goods if they do not meet our terms (see terms 6.1 and 6.2 above). If the item is deemed unfit for return, Simple Form will notify you the return has been rejected and this decision is final. You then have the following options:
- to have the item shipped back to you at your own cost
- to have the item recycled or disposed of.
