  • Elite Kente Pty Ltd main store is located in Brisbane, Australia. We therefore operate under the jurisdiction of Queensland State Law and Australian Federal and Commonwealth Laws.
  • Australian Consumer Law is summarised as:
    “If a product or service you buy fails to meet a consumer guarantee, you have the right to ask for a repair, replacement or refund under the Australian Consumer Law. The remedy you’re entitled to will depend on whether the issue is major or minor.”


The customer can ask us for  refund, when the item we sold did not meet the descriptions on our website or the item has a major problem according Australian Consumer Law definition. If the customer have a minor problem with our a product, we may  give the customer a free repair instead of a replacement or refund. When the item has a major problem , the customer has the right to ask for their choice of a replacement or refund.

What is a major problem?

A product or good has a major problem when:

    • it has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying it if they’d known about it
    • it is significantly different from the sample or description
    • it is substantially unfit for its common purpose and can’t easily be fixed within a reasonable time
    • it doesn’t do what you asked for and can’t easily be fixed within a reasonable time; or
    • it is unsafe.

We accept return of items after it has been delivered as specified in Australian Consumer Law and PayPal Buyer Protection  after 14 days of delivery. The customer must contact us and give the reasons for the return. We shall accept the return of item(s) based on the following:

  • That, the item(s) ordered was not the one sent to the customer. This sometimes occurs as a result of numerous orders from customers. In this case, we shall take the responsibility of the shipping fee. There shall be full refund of money as specified in Australian Consumer Protection and PayPal Buyer Protection. If the customer wants new item, we shall SHIP the one ordered immediately. There can also be some delays as explained under the shipping conditions already.
