We want you to be completely satisfied with every item that you purchase from Vitalia Australia. We understand that there may be times when you will need to return a product that you have purchased from us, and we aim to make this process as easy and hassle free as possible. Our returns policy has been constructed to comply with the relevant consumer rights and retailer obligations as set out under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL).
When to return a product?
You are entitled to a refund, replacement or credit from Vitalia Australia when an item purchased fails to meet one of the consumer guarantees as per the Australian Consumer Law (ACL), i.e. the product:
- Is faulty or of unacceptable quality
- Does not match the description or sample
- Is unfit for the intended purpose (i.e. does not do what it is meant to do)
- Is not delivered in a reasonable time frame
- Be returned in its original packaging
- Be in re-saleable condition
- Be returned within 28 days of purchase
- And proof or purchase must be provided (proof of purchase details are outlined below)
This also includes non-compliance with any applicable warranties or guarantees as set out by the manufacturer
Proof of purchase is required for all returns, which can be in the form of your receipt/tax invoice, a debit/credit card statement or online purchase transaction history.

The unwanted product must be returned to us either via post (at your expense) or in person to our store. Vitalia Australia treats all ‘change of mind’ transactions as a refund; you are then able to place another order in your own time for a replacement product from our online store.

Who pays for the return of my purchase?
Vitalia Australia will cover any associated delivery charges for the return of any products which fail to meet the consumer guarantees as per the Australian Consumer Law (see ‘When to return a product’ above), provided they are returned to us using the recommended shipping method (as discussed with a Vitalia Australia customer service team member). Any return delivery charges will be added to your refund amount once processed. We will also refund the cost of the original delivery and pay for the delivery of any replacement item.
For any ‘change of mind’ returns, it is your responsibility to cover all delivery charges incurred. A copy of your tax invoice (or relevant proof of purchase) is to be included in the delivery (please keep the original for your own reference), and the refund (excluding delivery charges) will be processed using your original method of payment.
Please ensure your item is packed securely to protect it from any damage in transit and be sure to retain your shipping information for tracking purposes, to ensure the package arrives safely at our store. Vitalia Australia cannot be responsible for any items damaged or lost during return transit.
How long will my refund take?
Please allow 7 business days for the return to be processed after your item arrives at our store.
Can I return my purchase to Vitalia Australia’s store?
Online purchases can also be returned to our store. A copy of your proof of purchase is required to complete the transaction. Please note any ‘change of mind’ returns or exchanges will be processed at the discretion of the store, which may choose to either offer a refund or exchange your item.
