JB Hi-Fi carries a large amount of CD / DVD / Blu-Ray / Game stock on-hand - however some ordered items are provided by suppliers on demand. The stated availability of an item takes into account the time taken to receive the item from the supplier. On occasion, suppliers are unable to fulfil your order. Should this occur, we will inform you as soon as possible. For consumer electronics orders, items are sourced from JB Hi-Fi stores across the country. We will inform you as soon as possible of any significant supply delays or problems with deleted items.

 

DISPATCHING ORDERS

Once ordered items are packed and ready we will then dispatch your order.

CD / DVD / Blu-Ray / Games Orders

All Australian software orders are sent via Australia Post. Large orders will need to be signed for by the recipient and tracking information will be available. All international orders are sent by Airmail. Refer to our shipping and delivery help pages for more information on international orders.

Consumer Electronics Orders

All Australian deliveries are shipped by national courier services. They will need to be signed for by the recipient.

 

PICK UP INSTORE

Once the Pick Up Store has confirmed stock is ready for collection, we will process your payment and you will receive “Item is ready for Pick Up” email. You can then proceed to your nominated Pick-Up Store to Collect your purchase. You will need your online order number, credit card you made the purchase with and identification that matches the delivery address used on your account.

3. CD / DVD / Blu-Ray / GAME PRE-ORDERS

All pre-order items on our site are available to order now. Please note that we now allow functionality so that you CAN order a pre-order item with an item already released on the same order. We will split your order so the pre-ordered item becomes its own order and the rest of the items ship when they are available.

As freight is charged by weight, the freight costs will be split across your pre-order item and the balance of your order. Therefore it may appear that you have been charged a higher freight for the pre-order item than you should, however, once the balance of the order is shipped it will even out to the correct freight across ALL items on the order.

Please note that “Pre-Order” does NOT imply that you will receive the item earlier than the official release date. If we have authorisation, we will always endeavour to ship your goods prior to release date so you will receive them as close to release date as possible. However, sometimes embargoes are placed on items meaning that we cannot ship them before the official release date. Please remember to include the standard mail delivery times when estimating when you will receive your Pre-Ordered item.

All our normal Terms & Conditions apply for pre-orders.

 

CONSUMER ELECTRONICS PRE-ORDERS

We will always endeavour to keep at the forefront of technology and add the details of upcoming items to our website. These items can be Pre-Ordered, but please remember that they cannot ship until stock arrives in the country and this can be difficult to estimate accurately at times. Manufacturing and sea freight delays can and do occur and these are out of our control. We will keep Pre-Order customers updated on their items as regularly as possible.

 

4. REMOVING ITEMS FROM YOUR CART

If you want to remove an item that you have placed in your cart:

  • Ensure you are in your cart
  • Locate the item you want to remove
  • Select the remove button 

The item will be removed from the cart, and the cart value will be automatically recalculated.

 

5. UPDATING ORDER QUANTITIES IN YOUR CART

By default, the quantity of an item added to a cart is 1 - to purchase multiples of any item already in your cart:

  • Ensure you are in your cart - click on the "View Cart" link (top right of page)
  • Locate the item whose quantity you wish to modify
  • Enter the number of units you require in the QTY field
  • Click on the "UPDATE" button.

The cart will recalculate the quantities and cart value to reflect your changes. Setting the quantity to "0" will remove the item from your cart. You can change the quantities up and down, as required - hit 'Update' and the cart will automatically adjust to reflect any changes.
