If your item is marked as ‘In-Stock’ on the product page or during check-out, then stock is available immediately, with delivery options generally available.
If your item is marked as ‘Limited Stock’ on the product page or during check-out, then low levels of stock are available immediately, with delivery options generally available.
If your item is marked as ‘Special Order’ on the product page or during check-out, then the item is not available immediately, and needs to be ordered from our supplier. Extended delivery times incorporating the supplier lead time will apply and will be quoted in the estimated delivery time provided at the check-out. From time to time suppliers are not able to supply in the time indicated, which can create further delay. If this happens, we will contact you as soon as possible.

Estimated delivery times are calculated based on the estimated shipping date, this includes the estimated supplier lead time days for Special Order items, and adds the carrier transit time (the time it takes a package to travel from our fulfilment location to your destination address), based on the selected delivery choice. The carrier transit time is calculated using business days, excluding Saturday and Sunday. Public holidays are also considered when calculating the carrier transit time.
Your estimated delivery time(s) will also be included in your order confirmation email.
Once your order has shipped, you will receive a shipment notification email that will provide you a link to track your delivery online and an SMS text message to let you know your goods are on their way. Please note Australia Post Mail is an exception to this, where no tracking information is available.

JB Hi-Fi's national courier networks cannot provide door-to-door services to some remote Australian areas. Examples include Christmas Island, Norfolk Island, Roma, Weipa, Nhulunbuy and any area that may require light aircraft, barge or boat to access. In these cases, if delivery is possible, surcharges may apply to the standard rates. Alternatively, couriers may provide delivery to local depots or Australia Post offices for customer collection of goods.
If you are shipping to a remote location where the above may apply, please contact Customer Service for further information.
Other Important Delivery items
Multiple Line Orders - Order shipments
We will always do our best to ensure your orders are consolidated into the fewest number of shipments possible. The number of shipments we make for your order is dependent on several factors including:
- our fulfilment network: where our stock is located across our network;
- product availability: items listed as Pre-Order or with Special Order availability will be split off and shipped separately from other items available immediately; and
- items requiring special shipping and handling: large items such as Bulky Visual, Cooking or Whitegoods products will be split off from other items and will ship separately.
Your order confirmation will show the number of shipments required to fulfil your order, identified by your order number prefix followed by a -1 or -2. For unforeseen reasons such as stock availability issues, occasionally to ensure you get your goods fast, we may need to partially ship products within a shipment. You will not be charged any more if this occurs.
What happens when I am not at home to accept my delivery?
JB HI-FI offers its online customers access to Alternative Delivery Points (ADPs) in the event of a missed or futile delivery.
ADPs are hyper-local, secure, convenient locations (Pharmacies, Newsagencies or Petrol Stations) where missed deliveries are returned to for collection at a later, more convenient time.
If you are a metro customer who lives within 5km, or a regional customer who lives within 10km of an ADP and you miss your Standard Parcel or Express Delivery, then it’s likely that your order will be taken back to the closest ADP near you for you to pick-up at a later, more convenient time.
When the missed delivery occurs and goods are sent to the ADP, you will be sent a text message advising that this has occurred and providing you with the ADP’s address details and operating hours for pick-up. To pick-up your order from the ADP simply provide photo identification that matches the JB HI-FI order delivery details. If you are unable to make it to the ADP you can authorise an alternate person to collect the delivery on your behalf by signing the back of the Carrier calling card and including their name. The authorised person will need to present this card with their photo ID at the ADP. Pick-ups from ADP locations must be completed within 7 calendar days.
If you do not have an ADP within a close proximity to your delivery address or your delivery is larger than the allowable size, then your delivery will be taken back to our carrier’s depot, and you will be left with a calling card to advise of the missed delivery. You will need to call the carrier to make alternate re-delivery arrangements.
When a missed delivery occurs for a Courier or 3hr Rush delivery, the goods will be returned to your local JB HI-FI store. When this occurs, you will be sent a text advising of the missed delivery and providing the Stores contact details. You will receive a call from your local JB HI-FI store to make alternate re-delivery arrangements.
If your order was consigned on Australia Post’s e-parcel service, and you miss the delivery, then the order will be taken back to the closest Australia Post office and you will be left with a card.
Pre-Order Release Date Delivery
Due to strict supplier embargo, pre-order product may only be shipped 1 day prior to the official release date. At the check-out, you will be offered the delivery options eligible for your selected pre-order item.
Our Express Delivery service is generally delivered within 1-2 business days, and is often the quickest delivery service available for Pre-Order releases. We suggest you deliver to a residential address to avoid delays. Please note: Express service is not available for PO Box or Parcel Locker address types. Courier Delivery and 3hr Rush Deliveries are not eligible services for pre-order releases.
Sending orders to a Parcel Locker, PO Box, GPO, Locked Bag or RMB addresses
There are some special considerations that need to be taken into account when sending orders to Parcel Locker, PO Box, GPO, Locked Bag or RMB address types.
- Size: Parcels cannot be larger than 39 x 36 x 64cm and/or heavier than 16kg
- Carrier: All parcels to the above address types will be consigned on Australia Post E-Parcel.
Please note: Standard Shipping Deliveries may take longer for these address types.

Remote deliveries are subject to local transport schedules and may encounter extended delays.
For international orders, please allow at least 2-4 weeks for air mail delivery (on rare occasions, international delivery can take up to 12 weeks).
