Please read the T&C’s carefully before placing any orders on our Site. We recommend you should keep a copy of the T&C’s for future reference. We may modify the T&C’s at any time. By accessing or using this Site, you agree to these terms & conditions of use. If you do not agree to these terms you may not use this Site.
Australian Sales Only
We sell and ship Products only within Australia. We will not make deliveries outside of Australia.
Eligibility to purchase
In order to make a purchase through the Site, you will be required to register and provide your personal details. In particular, you must provide your real name, phone number, email address and other requested information as indicated. Furthermore, when ordering items, you will be required to provide payment details and guarantee that the payment details you provide on ordering are both valid and correct and that you are the person referred to in the billing information provided.
Acceptance of Your Order
You may place an Order by filling in the Order Form on the CocoCut Site and clicking the “Submit My Order” button. Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it.
By placing an Order, you make an offer to us to purchase the Products you have selected based on these T&C’s. Information contained on the Site constitutes an invitation to treat. No information on our Site constitutes or should be deemed as an offer by us to supply any Products; however CocoCut will make every effort to supply Products to you. We will notify you that your order is being processed by sending you an Order Confirmation and tax invoice via email; however, we do not formally accept your offer until your order has passed our internal validation procedures for verifying the bona fides of each order placed, for the purpose of preventing credit card or payment fraud. CocoCut and its affiliates reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders in their sole discretion. We will confirm acceptance of your order when we send you an email confirming shipment of the goods you have ordered. If we cannot process or accept your Order after payment is received we will contact you by email or telephone.
We reserve the right not to accept your order if we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out within the T&C’s.
We may also refuse to process and therefore accept a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any merchandise from the Site, removing or editing content on the Site; refusing to process a transaction; or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.
Payment Methods and Processing
CocoCut currently accepts PayPal, Visa or MasterCard only. Payment processing will not begin until we receive all the information we need. Orders placed on a weekend or a Public holiday will not begin payment processing until the next business day. Business days are Monday through Friday, excluding VIC Public holidays. We process credit card and PayPal payments after you click the “Submit My Order” button. For credit card and PayPal payments we will email a tax invoice to you with your Order Confirmation. Your tax invoice is your proof of purchase subject to payment being received by us. Payments will be debited and cleared from your account upon dispatch of your order by CocoCut. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to CocoCut, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We take all reasonable care to make our Site secure. All credit card transactions on this Site are processed using a secure online payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment.
To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple and secure CocoCut uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. When ordering using SSL you will have a message come up about Certificate Authorisation which varies depending on what browser you are using. E2commerce provides our Certificate Authorisation which means that once you receive their message, they have authorised that we are in fact CocoCut.
Our online ordering system is the industry standard for encryption technology â€“ to protect your online order information. SSL encrypts all information including your credit card and all personal information passed from you to CocoCut. Encryption provides you with security and peace of mind when your browser and local network supports the use of encrypted data transmissions.
We will take all reasonable care to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site unless that access was made possible by our negligence.

This Change of Mind Policy is in addition to your statutory rights under the Australian Consumer Law.
Change of mind policy
You are entitled to the benefit of statutory consumer guarantees in respect of products purchased from CocoCut stores.
If you believe a product purchased from a CocoCut store:
- is damaged, faulty, unsafe or is not of acceptable quality;
- is not fit for the specified purpose; or
- does not match the description given to the product;
You may return it to any CocoCut store within a reasonable period after purchase. Please refer to “Returns Locations” below for more information.
Proof of purchase
It is important for CocoCut to establish that claims made about such goods are genuine and that you originally purchased the goods from a CocoCut store.
Please present your CocoCut register receipt (or a copy or photo of it). We may also accept your credit card or bank statement (provided it clearly identifies the value of the product), or your signed lay-by agreement or warranty card showing the date and amount of purchase.
We reserve the right to reject your claim if you cannot reasonably demonstrate that you purchased the product from a CocoCut store.
Assessment of failure and entitlements
Once proof of purchase is established, we will assess the condition of the product in store to determine the nature of the problem. In certain circumstances, it may be necessary for us to send the product away for assessment within a reasonable period.
If the product is assessed as having:
- a major failure: you may choose to return the product and:
- receive a refund or an in-store credit (by way of a gift card); or
- receive an identical replacement (or one of similar value if reasonably available to CocoCut);
- a minor failure: we may provide a repair within a reasonable time. If we cannot repair the product within a reasonable time, then you can choose a replacement, refund or in-store credit (by way of gift card).
If you request a refund, the amount will be the price you paid at the time of the original purchase as shown on the register receipt. We will generally issue the refund using the original payment method.
If you request a replacement of the goods, your replacement goods become your property and the returned goods become our property. When a refund is given, the returned goods become our property.
Please note that we will not offer a refund, replacement, in-store credit or repair if:
- at the time of purchase, you were made aware of the damage or defect in the product; or
- you have damaged the product because of normal wear and tear or misuse.
Goods with manufacturer’s warranty
Many of our goods come with a guarantee or warranty from the manufacturer. If they do, they are in addition to consumer guarantees and cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law.
Under the Australian Consumer Law, you are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage.
You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. Please refer to “Proof of Purchase” above and “Returns Locations” below for more details.
When returning goods in accordance with the CocoCut Returns Policy, you may choose to return them to any CocoCut store, or, in the case of goods that come with a manufacturer’s warranty or guarantee, to any CocoCut store or directly to the manufacturer. If you cannot return the goods to a CocoCut store, please contact our Customer Service Team.
