If the item has been assembled or requires cleaning, and you have a copy of your Like Butter invoice, a shop credit will be issued less a cleaning charge to be determined by Like Butter upon visual inspection of the item/s.
Sorry, we cannot accept returns on goods ordered to your specification (such as custom-made furniture).
Exchanges and refunds can be given where goods are faulty (other than any fault that was clearly communicated to you, or which ought to have been revealed by an examination of the product, at the time of purchase), wrongly described, different from a sample shown to you or don’t do what they are supposed to do.
Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law.
