For large parcels delivered by Cope Sensitive Freight, please contact us at the time of placing your order to obtain an “Authority to Leave” form (via email) for special delivery instructions.

Rest assured that Market Direct guarantee product satisfaction. In the unlikely event that the products received are not of a satisfactory quality, are damaged, defective or you wish to return goods for any reason within the terms of this contract, you need to follow the returns policy.

Faulty or damaged products should be returned to us within 28 days in original packaging, with all the parts, accessories and instructions. Our standard Returns Policy applies to all purchases from the Big W Marketplace, all claims must be made within a reasonable timeframe if a defect/fault is detected, and must be accompanied by proof of purchase.

Market Direct may reject claims which are not made within a reasonable timeframe and/or where there is no proof of purchase. Please contact our customer service team should you notice any issues or defects with your product, our team will deal with each case based on its merits and, depending on the circumstances, will offer to exchange a product provided a fault is detected. We may request that you return a faulty item to us via a reply paid address and dropped off at a local Australia Post outlet. Alternatively, for large products, we will arrange a pickup by our freight company during office hours (Monday-Friday).

If your exchanged item/s are returned to us due to being un‐delivered and held in one of our couriers’ warehouses, Market Direct will charge you a re-delivery fee back to your address. Please see the delivery information section below for more information.
