Any time you purchase a product through the Amway website www.amway.com.au, you have the right to use it for a reasonable time (90 days) to determine whether it is satisfactory and whether you want to keep it.

    Amway warrants new mechanical devices/appliances for a period of one year from the date of original purchase. If any mechanical device/appliance purchased should become defective during the warranty period, Amway will, at its discretion repair, replace or issue a refund for the defective device with proof of purchase.
  • Statutory or Implied Warranties
    Our goods come with guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law that cannot be excluded.

Note: Delivery charges are correct at the time of printing but may be subject to change without notice. Delivery Orders are delivered between the hours of 7.00am and 6.00pm (Monday to Friday). In the event that there is no one to take delivery, the driver may, in the interest of security, leave a card in your mail box. The card will provide details on how to book a redelivery, collect from a nominated Hubbed Newsagent or if in rural areas pick up your order from the closest nominated collect point. Your parcel will be held for 10 working days before returning it to the Amway warehouse.

Delivery to an Alternate Address: to ensure safe delivery when you are not available to receive your products, you may have your order delivered to another address nominated as an alternative "ship to" address.
