Refund Policy

Up on the Rooftop (A.B.N.52 631 086 001) (we, us, our, or Up on the Rooftop) makes every effort to be fully transparent at all times. Accordingly, we have developed this Refunds & Returns Policy to ensure that you are fully aware of your rights with respect to refunds and returns.

Returns and Refunds

If you are concerned about your entitlement to a refund or exchange, we recommend that you read on to learn about your rights and our obligations to you.

Your entitlement to a refund or exchange

You will be entitled to a refund or exchange where we are required to do so under any relevant laws, including the Australian Consumer Law. You may ask for a refund or exchange, if an item has a major problem, or is significantly different to what you asked for. 

In the event that you believe that you are entitled to a refund or exchange, you must provide us with:

  • your full name and address;
  • the original order number; and
  • the reason for claiming the refund or exchange.
  • Requests for returns must be submitted within three days of your receiving your items.

You may not be entitled to a refund or exchange where you have changed your mind or the product does not suit your needs, so please choose products carefully and check your order on placement. In the event that a return is approved, we will inform you of the conditions under which a return will be accepted. These must be complied with to receive a refund or credit note.

If approved, return postage, insurance and claims for the cost of any damage enroute will be the responsibility of the Purchaser. Until such time as the item is received in original condition into the warehouse, the item is deemed to belong to the Purchaser and their responsibility. A charge a $10 Restock/Administration fee will be charged on returns over $100 or 10% of the value if less than $100. 


Failure to provide a correct address, address at which a Freight Partner is able to deliver, failure to be at the premises if signature is required for which a re-charge, reprocessing fee (MIn $10 is unfortunately charged by the freight carrier) or additional freight costs are incurred will be the responsibility of the Purchaser. Additional freight charges will be borne by the Purchaser. A Returned to Sender/Handling/return to stock fee (in the case of a refund) will be charged per parcel of $10 deducted from the refunded amount.  Freight to re-send the parcel to the Purchaser will be at full unsubsidised rate plus the reprocessing fee charged by the courier for its return to us. We reserve the right to charge or waive fees.

Returning items to us

If you wish to request a return of an item to us, this must be done within 3 days of receiving the item or as soon as possible after becoming aware of an issue prompting your request for a refund or exchange. Delayed claims for refunds or exchanges may lead to your request for an exchange or refunds being rejected.

We reserve the right to assess the condition of a returned item prior to offering a refund or exchange. This may result in a refund or exchange being refused by us. You may be entitled to a refund equal to the cost of the item only. You may be entitled to an exchange for an identical item, or one of a similar value.

How to return items if approved:

Package the item/s in a shipping bag or box that will prevent damage in transit. We recommend similar packaging to what you originally received the item/s in. If possible, include the original box for the returned item. Instructions will be confirmed at the time a return is approved by us.

Up on the Rooftop takes no responsibility for items that are returned but become lost or not delivered to us. If you are concerned about loss or damage in transit, you should consider adding tracking or insurance. However, this is at your sole discretion, and Up on the Rooftop makes no representations or warranties in relation to the security of returned item/s.

Return delivery charges

Provision of refunds or exchanges to you

Refunds (less applicable charges) will generally be processed within five (5) to seven (7) days of our receipt of returned items.
