Terms and conditions
The BOSTES Shop is operated by the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards NSW (ABN: 68 331 844 953). Use of the BOSTES Shop is subject to the following terms and conditions.
All prices quoted in BOSTES Shop are in Australian dollars, and include GST where applicable. All prices are correct at the time of online publication. Prices are subject to change without notice. Where sale items are advertised, the sale price will only be available for the indicated specified time period.
A volume discount of 10% is automatically applied at the checkout to all orders (except for wholesalers) when 10 or more of the same item are ordered online. This is applied only to items where 10 or more are ordered and not to the entire order.
Discounts are only applicable to online orders.
Domestic orders from schools, teachers, parents, students or members of the public are shipped via Australia Post regular post and will arrive between 2–4 working days. The following fixed rates apply.
1 item $4.90
2–3 items $9.80
4–19 items $14.40
20+ items $24.10 (maximum postage payable on any one order)
If BOSTES needs to ship an order in more than one dispatch, you will be charged only for the original delivery charges and BOSTES will pay for any additional delivery charges.
No shipping charges apply to wholesale/reseller orders.
International orders will be charged at an economy postage rate calculated per kg of parcel weight (to one international address). Expected delivery time can be from 4–6 weeks from the time of dispatch, depending on the country of destination.
Order handling times
We endeavour to process all orders within 48 hours from the receipt of the order.
Credit card (Visa or Mastercard) payments are accepted through the Westpac payment gateway for all orders. All purchases made using credit cards will incur a 0.4% surcharge (GST inclusive).
All NSW schools and approved credit account wholesale/reseller customers will be invoiced on a 30-day credit account. Provided an account is paid within the 30 days, wholesalers and resellers are eligible for a discount of 40% on goods ordered. This will automatically be applied at the checkout.
Wholesalers/resellers who do not currently hold a credit account can apply for a credit account. Complete the Credit Account Application and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
You will receive an order confirmation by email as soon as you place an order at the online store. Tax invoices/receipts for online purchase transactions are normally sent with the goods. If for any reason you don’t receive the invoice, contact the BOSTES Shop team.
We endeavour to keep or maintain stock levels for all titles listed. However, unforeseen supply problems or unexpected demand may occasionally result in stock being unavailable.
If stock is unavailable the item will be marked as ‘temporarily out of stock’. Please note that we don’t back order any items that are temporarily out of stock.
Requests for returns, refunds or exchange of goods
BOSTES will gladly accept exchange of items purchased from the online shop if the goods you have received are damaged. If items are missing from your order we will send you any missing items.
BOSTES will gladly accept a return of goods purchased from the online shop for an exchange or refund if the goods you have received are significantly different to the description on the BOSTES Shop. All goods being returned that are significantly different from the description must be returned to BOSTES in saleable condition.
Refunds or exchanges will not be given for a change of mind.
You will need to pay the cost of returning any refund or exchange items to BOSTES Shop. If we deem that your claim is valid we will reimburse you for the reasonable cost of your postage.
