We use a combination of delivery contractors to ensure you receive your order as quickly as possible as we understand how important it is for you.
We use a range of freight companies for our deliveries. These include Australia Post, Couriers Please, FedEX, Jet Couriers and TNT. At checkout you will be given the option to choose the company that will delivery your parcel to your location. Please note that some delivery agents may not deliver to your area and will not be an option.
As shipping companies change their delivery areas from time to time, we will contact you if we need to use an alternative method.
Please note that Couriers Please, FedEX, Jet Couriers and TNT only deliver to physical addresses and cannot be delivered to PO Boxes.
Cut off time for guaranteed same day dispatch for all orders is 10.30am AEST Monday to Friday. For any orders received after 10.30am AEST on weekdays and anytime over the weekend, your order will be dispatched on the next business day, however this does not apply to orders with edible images.
We understand sometimes you need your items super fast. If this is the case then we recommend you select the Express Post option during checkout as this will guarantee that your order will be shipped the same day if ordered before 12:00pm AEST Monday to Friday. Most capital cities receive parcels next business day however this is not always guaranteed as there can be circumstances outside the control of Lollipop Cake Supplies and the freight company.
All express post services and provided by Australia Post. At times we may substitute this for a courier if we feel that they will provide a better service.

All freight providers in Australia calculate weight physically as well as cubed. Freight is charged by the higher weight. Cubed weight is measured at 250kg per cubic metre. Cubed weight is calculated by multiplying length x width x height in metres, timed by 250. Our website will calculate weight via both methods. For example;
A tub of 7kg fondant is 7kg, however its cubed weight is only 2.2kg.
A 12" round cake dummy is only 170g however its cubed weight is 2.65kg.
For both of the examples above, freight is calculated on the heavier weight.
When the cart weight reaches 16kg or products that incur a weight & bulky goods surcharge are in your cart, the bulky goods rate will be charged.
In checkout an option is provided to provide “ATL” (Authority to Leave) for the goods to be left at your delivery location if nobody is present to receive delivery. Whilst many of customers utilise this option, we do not recommend the ATL if you’re going to be out for a lengthy period of time or if your parcel can be damage from the weather or seen from the street.
Once you provide an ATL you understand that you have accepted full responsibility for the goods to be left unattended by the courier or Australia Post. With an ATL you take full responsibility for those goods and a claim for lost, damaged or stolen goods will not be accepted.
Bulky goods delivery can sometimes be cheaper when an ATL has been approved. This will be quoted upon checkout.
Whilst we can ensure that we will ship your order on time, we cannot guarantee delivery days, dates or times, however we can give you an estimate guideline of when you can expect your order to be delivered.
Brisbane Metropolitan – 1 - 3 business days
Sunshine & Gold Coast and Toowoomba – 1- 3 business days
Queensland Regional (including Far North QLD) – 1 - 4 business days
Sydney & Melbourne Metropolitan – 1 - 4 business days (Currently delays of at least 3 days to VIC )
Outside Metropolitan Area & Regional NSW, Victoria & Tasmania – 3 - 7 business days
South & Western Australia and Northern Territory – 5 - 10 business days
Please Note: These delivery lead times are purely guides and once the order is in the hands of Australia Post or the Courier we cannot guarantee delivery days & times.
Once your order has been dispatched we will provide you with a tracking number which we send to you in an email with the name of the delivery contractor your order has been sent with. If you do not receive any emails from us, please check your junk/spam folder and if you still have not receive correspondence from us then please email us immediately so we can ensure your details are correct in our system and forward the emails on to you.
In the unlikely event your order has not arrived within the above guidelines then please contact us immediately by email with your order number and we will follow up with the courier or Australia Post to see where your order is hiding!
Shipping insurance can be purchased for selected delivery methods at checkout. Please refer to our shipping insurance page.
Any claims for damage or loss must be made within 24 business hours from the delivery of the parcel.
Whilst we cannot guarantee a day or time the courier or Australia Post will deliver your parcel, you can provide an “ATL” (Authority to Leave) the goods in a safe & nominated location on your premises if you think you will not be home at the time of delivery. Whilst many of customers utilise this option, we do not recommend the ATL if you’re going to be out for a lengthy period of time or if your parcel can be damage from the weather or seen from the street. Once you provide an ATL you take full responsibility for those goods and a claim for lost, damaged or stolen goods will not be accepted.
You can also choose to have your order delivered to your workplace or an alternate address where someone is available to take delivery if your parcel. One of the reasons we choose Couriers Please & TNT for the bulk of our deliveries is they will not drop ship unless authority to do so has been provided. If you are not home when the contractor attempts to deliver your parcel, then a calling card will be left either in your letterbox, under your front door mat or tucked into your front door. On this calling card, details of how to request a free re-delivery by Couriers Please is provided on the card.
If your order has been sent by Australia Post, a calling card will be left in your letterbox, under your front door mat or tucked into your front door for you to collect your parcel from your nearest Australia Post outlet.
If a calling card has been left on your premises this will be noted on the tracking information for both Couriers Please & Australia Post. If you cannot locate your calling card, please contact us for further information on how to contact the correct contractor.
