CCN Shipping & Delivery

Orders will be filled and posted within two weeks of placement of order, unless the item is a personalised product.

The CCN Shop is based in a country centre.

Customers should not assume express post means quick delivery. CCN has no control over Australia Post

Express post may have been chosen to be able to track orders, should they go astray, for efficiency of packing and calculating of postage.

Every effort will be made to supply orders by the 'Date Required By' when the customer has supplied a date.

Therefore orders placed after 12 noon Tuesday may not be delivered by the weekend of that week.

Customers will be notified of the CCN's inability to supply any items in the order, within two working days of placement of the order.

Overseas customers are advised to contact us via the "Contact Us" section on the CCN Shop's menu bar bottom left hand side, providing:
