Coronavirus Pandemic Notification
Here at Balense we are doing everything possible to ensure we keep up with the supply and shipping demands of our customers during this Coronavirus pandemic.
We have been working hard with our freighting partners AusPost to ensure shipping is prompt and as efficient as possible however the challenges presented by the pandemic mean there are some delays as our business and our freighting partners adopt additional safety measures to protect our people and our customers. Other factors contributing to delays include fewer domestic flights, international delays and increased volumes as more people start shopping online.
For international customers please keep in mind when tracking your orders there unfortunately won’t be an update until the goods have process through your countries customs. Again due to the increase in online shopping and international shipping there have also been delays in those areas as well.
Please remember that Express shipping options will take priority so that may be a better opting for those customers wanting their goods as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support.

Domestic (Australian) orders are fulfilled through AusPost with an estimated shipment time of 2-5 business days. For regional areas & WA there is an estimated shipment time of 5-10 business day.
International orders are fulfilled through AusPost with an estimated shipment time of 1-2 weeks.
Please note that shipment time is not guaranteed by Balense or AusPost. We are not responsible for any delays that do not result from our error. Balense is not responsible for an order once AusPost has marked it as “Delivered”.
All shipments may encounter delays due to high volume or bad weather that extends beyond the expected delivery time frame provided by the carrier. International shipments are subject to customs procedures leaving Australia and arriving in the destination country which may cause further delays. While these delays are uncommon, they are a reality of shipping logistics especially with international shipping. Please be advised that tracking scans may no longer update once a shipment has left Australia.
Shipping charges are based upon the value of your order, the weight of your order and the destination of your order. Once you have your order completed in your shopping cart you can select your destination country to see the shipping options available to you and how much they cost. Orders that are designated for international shipping outside of Australia may be subjected to taxes, customs duties and other fees by the destination country. The recipient is responsible for these fees.
If the purchaser refuses a shipment, they are responsible for any import fees incurred, cost of returning the shipment and the original shipping charges. This amount will be deducted from the merchandise refund plus a 5% restocking fee.
Balense is not responsible for return of shipments or reimbursement of lost packages or damaged products.
You may email email@example.com by 1:30pm on the day of placing your order to request a cancellation. For any orders placed outside of general business hours, a team member will respond with confirmation of cancellation once business hours resume.
