F.A.Q.s

Fast, reliable shipping…

How much does delivery cost?

Shipping on all orders within Australia costs just $5.

Express orders within Australia costs $10. Shipping to NZ is only $10. Shipping on orders to the rest of the world costs $12.95. This includes tracking via Australia Post or Couriers Please.

How long will my booties take to arrive?

Nationally, we ship using Australia Post. We fulfil orders each Monday , Wednesday & Friday morning. Parcels typically take 2-5 working days to reach most parts of Australia. Parcels typically take 3-5 days to reach New Zealand via airmail. Internationally, we try to ship airmail wherever possible (7-10 working days), but there are a few destinations (including South Africa) which ship via sea and they can take 3+ weeks to arrive. Please contact us to determine shipping times to your part of the world.

Do you offer express post?

Yes. Select this option at cart and we’ll ship your parcel via Australia Post Express anywhere in Australia. Note that this does not guarantee next day shipping as we fulfil orders Monday, Wednesday & Friday morning. Parcels to metro areas will typically arrive within 24 hours of leaving our warehouse. Regional areas can sometimes take 2 or more days. We do not offer international express post at this stage.

How can I track my order?

You’ll be sent tracking information via email once your order has been packed and dispatched from our warehouse. If you provide your mobile phone number, customers within Australia can also be kept informed of the status of their shipment via text.

Where do you ship to?

We ship Internationally. See pricing below.

Can you guarantee delivery?

Unhappy customers make us sad so we track all orders and endeavour to resolve any shipping issues. However we can’t be responsible for stock once it leaves our warehouse. If your stock doesn’t arrive within 4-5 days of your order, get in touch with us at hello@minnowdesigns.com.au and we’ll do our best to sort it out.

Can I ship to somebody else as a gift?

Yes. Gift wrapping and a handwritten gift card can be purchased for $5 at checkout. Note that we cannot write gift cards unless the gift wrap option is selected at cart.

Can you ship to a PO Box?

Yes, however the box we ship the booties in is quite large and will often not fit into the smaller PO boxes. If this is the case, the post office will ask you to collect your parcel inside.

Payment & Ordering

Where can I enter my coupon code?

Just underneath your order total on your shopping cart page, there is a section where you can ‘add coupon code’. Pop your code in here and click ‘add’. The shopping cart will automatically calculate your total discount and subtract it from your total order amount.

Help! My coupon code doesn’t work!

Whoops! Close out of the shopping cart before confirming your order. Your cart at minnowdesigns.com.au will save your goodies. Now, drop us an email at hello@minnowdesigns.com.au. We’ll jump on it as soon as we possibly can. We use a very simple coupon system so it should take no time for us to sort it.

Can I ship to somebody else as a gift?

Yes. We’ll even include a handwritten gift message. Please select the $5 gift wrap option and enter your gift message at checkout.

How can I pay?

You can pay by credit card at our checkout (we use global processing powerhouse Stripe payments) or via Paypal. Neither Paypal nor Stripe share any of your financial data. All we receive are your order details, shipping address and email.

I’m having issues with my Paypal account.

We have no control over Paypal’s Payment gateway. If you’re having issues with your Paypal account, please contact Paypal customer support.

Can I change or cancel my order?

We move pretty fast. Once your order is received by the warehouse, it cannot be changed and you’ll have to return the goods for a refund and then reorder.

How are Minnows made?

How to put your Minnows on

There can be a bit of a trick to putting on your little ones Minnows. They’re designed to fit snug in order to prevent drag in the water but they shouldn’t be tight around the big toe. If in doubt, go up a size.

How to care for your Minnows

Minnows aren’t just super comfy, they’re super easy to care for. Just throw them in the machine on a cold wash with your regular swim things and hang out in a shady spot to dry.  Note that the silver coating on our AVOCA sandals is not designed to go through the machine. Please rinse these gently and spot clean.

Minnows are made from soft, plush neoprene (wetsuit fabric). As such, they’re great for salt and fresh water however they are not recommended for use in strong chlorine. Flex sole will take you anywhere but avoid rough surfaces like concrete when wearing our early walker soft sole range. Not suitable for crawlers.
