All parcels that leave Send A Toy require a signature on delivery.  An
authority to leave without a signature can be applied, however, it will be at your own risk. In the event an authority to leave parcel is lost or stolen, Send A Toy will not provide compensation.

in your parcel tracking email and/or pending delivery text (sent to you
by Australia Post once your parcel leaves Send A Toy).

For this reason we do not price match.
