Will I receive my balloons inflated?
When you order either latex or foil balloons, you will receive them uninflated unless otherwise stated. As much as we would like to send you the balloons already filled with air, doing so would only result in burst balloons at your doorstep.

We will then contact you via email with the cost for your goods. At that point you can accept the order or cancel it without occuring any charges to your credit card.
For international orders who is responsible for taxes and duties?
Please note that it is your responsibility to pay for any customs duties and taxes that may be incurred in your country. Most countries have a limit on the value of the goods before there are taxes due. This value varies from country to country and it is your responsibility to get your country specific facts, information and regulations prior to placing an order with us. Party Products Australia will not be responsible for fees/damages associated with non compliance.

Products that cannot go via the Express Shipping method
All 10cm, 22cm and mini shape air filled foil balloons are unable to be shipped by express post due to them being too fragile to transport in satchels. They are also classified as a restricted product by airlines (can explode or pop in transit).
All Tablecloth Rolls, Photo Props, Pinatas (excludes flat pack Pinatas), Sign In Sheets, large cutouts and other miscellaneous large items are not able to go via Priority Express Post due to their size, shape and weight and therefore can only be shipped by Road.
