Just Comfort Shoes Special Orders Policy
This policy forms part of the Just Comfort Shoes Terms and Conditions of Trade and Website Use.
What are Special Orders?
Special Orders involve asking us to source a product from one of our suppliers if we don't have it in stock. This may sometimes include items that we don't usually stock. Special Orders cannot be placed through the online store without consulting with us. Please feel free to make an enquiry through our Contact page, by phone or in store. Once we confirm the product's availability, Special Orders may then be placed in store, or by credit card over the phone, or online if we add the relevant web shop inventory to make that possible, but will be subject to the freight costs and rules of either a normal online purchase or a Special Order at our discretion.
Deposit, Timeframe and Freight
Special orders are subject to availability from our suppliers and usually require a $20 refundable deposit, a $20 non-refundable deposit or full payment up front. We will usually check availability before taking payment, and payment may be made in store or by credit card over the phone.
Special orders requiring a $20 refundable deposit are generally those in the following shoe size ranges for styles we commonly order: WOMEN - US 6.5 to 10.5 or EU 37 to 42; MEN - US 8 to 12 or EU 41 to 46. Your deposit will be refunded if you try the shoes on in store but decide not to buy. If you opt for delivery without trying the shoes on and then decide not to buy, the freight cost for delivery to you and for return of the product to us will be charged to you, but your deposit will be refunded.
Non-Refundable Deposits or Payments
Sizes outside the range described above, shoes requiring a freight cost from the supplier, and styles less likely to sell to our usual market will generally require either a $20 non-refundable deposit or non-refundable up-front payment in full. Since non-refundable payment creates a risk to you in the event of an item being unsuitable, we recommend talking to us first about trying on a similar shoe in store that may give an indication of suitable size and feel. (Non-refundability does not apply to the cost of the shoes themselves where legislation requires a refund for defective items.)
Special orders vary in their timeframes and freight costs, depending largely on the supplier. We may charge you a non-refundable fee to cover delivery from the supplier to us. Additional freight will apply if you opt for delivery to you rather than in-store pick-up. We can let you know the freight cost before you order.
Special Order items are reserved for customers in store for up to 3 weeks (unless otherwise agreed) before being returned to stock as unclaimed. Customers will receive a store credit for the price of the shoes minus a $20 admin fee.
If the item you seek is not currently available even by special order, or if you wish to avoid paying extra freight costs, you may register your interest in a product so that we can advise you if it becomes available in store as a stock item. Stock items are not generally held for customers without a deposit.
