After ordering online, you will receive an email confirmation from us containing your order details, and a payment receipt from eWAY or Paypal if you elected for payment by credit card or Paypal. We will normally confirm receipt of your order within a few minutes of ordering. When ordering from our site there are a number of important factors to take into consideration.
We strive to ship all orders on the same business day as payment clears. We can only do this for orders where payment has cleared by 1:00pm AEST, if payment clears after this time the order will be shipped the following business day. On the rare occasion that delivery will take a little longer, we will notify you via email with an estimated delivery time frame.
Items sent regular post should arrive within 1-4 business days. There is no tracking number available for items sent regular post.
Items sent registered post should arrive within 1-4 business days. All items sent registered post come with a tracking number, and can be tracked here.
Items sent express post should arrive within 1-2 business days. All items sent express come with a tracking number, and can be tracked here if your tracking number looks like this, or here if your tracking number looks like this.
We ship from multiple locations, from both local and overseas warehouses. The location each item will be shipping from is shown under each item in the shopping cart. All items shipped from overseas will be sent regular post, regardless of which shipping method is selected at checkout. There is no express or registered service available for items shipping from overseas. The shipping times displayed above are for shipping from Australian locations. All items shipping from overseas have the shipping time displayed on the product page, in the shopping cart, and also on the order confirmation email if an order is placed.
If you have purchased an instant redemption code (Playstation Network, Xbox Live, World of Warcraft, etc) your code will be delivered within 30 minutes of ordering during business hours. If you have not recieved your code, please let us know via Live Chat or firstname.lastname@example.org. Orders outside of business hours will be issued as soon as we see the order, which in most cases is within 1-2 hours.
All products shipped from Cheap Games Australia are brand new unless stated otherwise. Some new games will not arrive shrink-wrapped, as many publishers do not shrink-wrap their games. We also have a partnership with a retail outlet, and some of the games we ship to you may be on display on their shelves. For theft prevention, these games have the discs removed, and any DLC codes filed away. All pre-owned products will be tested before shipping. Most of the time our pre-owned discs look like they are brand new as we have a state of the art disc resurfacing machine, and we will use it on all pre-owned games as required. Any DLC codes/online passes shipped with pre-owned games most likely will have already been used, therefore most likely they will not work (but you never know your luck).
We sell parallel imports aswell as local release games. However, unlike many other online stores, we will not sell any parallel imports where the DLC codes will not work in Australia. Club Nintendo cards from our imported games will not work on an Australian account, but they can still be redeemed by creating a UK account. This also gives you access too many goodies not available from Nintendo Australia.
