Postage / delivery within Australia

Do you offer free post?
Yes. Website orders: free tracked post for orders $115 AUD and over within Australia.

What is base rate of post?
For orders less than $115 AUD :  a starting post rate of $13.20 for first rpg book plus $0.80 for every extra book added. The post rate is less if buying a novel or cards and likely more if buying a board game or book bundle.

How often do you post?
We aim to post once or twice a week. However, as my partner Toggo packs the books when he’s off shift there may be a lag posting.

How long until I receive my parcel?
Transit times:
Generally it is about a week or less from Perth to interstate. However, depending on your location in Australia, it may take up to 12-14 days to arrive at your door from Western Australia.

We use estimated Australia Post delivery times as a guide and always add a tracking number to your order.

Do you add tracking number to my order?

Yes we add tracking numbers to all orders – you can find this in the order complete email from info@retrorocket.com.au or contact us directly.

Additional information (signature on delivery and express):

  • if you live in a unit or apartment we may add signature on delivery with no additional charge to you.
  • Sometimes we send Express post (extra cost is at our expense) if I decide the delay posting is too long and during peak times like Christmas : )

Pricing, stock levels, fees et al.

Prices are subject to change without notice / as I tweak things.

We endeavour to keep website up to date: though if a book has been bought in another arena the site may not reflect it as out of stock but that is generally rectified within the hour.

Bear in mind PayPal now keeps all fees regardless of related refunds and adjustments so we may not refund those, though generally we do.

The COVID-19 Age: packaging advice

We did close our stockroom to visitors from 14/03/20 and – for a few months – were only offering contact less pick up and post. From 2021 onwards we are open by appointment.
