Is it illegal to buy a Waterpipe?
We can understand your concerns, but there really is no need to worry. Waterpipes are not illegal to buy or own, however in some states it is illegal to use them to consume illegal substances. We ship them legally from our Northern NSW location, Australia-wide with Australia Post. You can’t get in trouble or have items confiscated, because there are no laws being broken. And for your peace of mind, we also ship in discreet, unmarked, generic-looking parcels with no reference to bongs or Glass Bongs Australia.
Are we reliable?
We have sent thousands of parcels to all parts of Australia since 2016, and have grown from nothing to Australia's largest online smokeshop in that period. We continue to maintain a good reputation in the Australian smokeshop scene than any other online store. We are well established and have a relationship with some of the biggest and best names in the industry worldwide. We are committed to providing the highest quality smoking products on the market at the lowest prices. We also pride ourselves in providing exceptional customer service.
How discreet is our packaging?
Your privacy is of our highest priority! All orders are packaged appropriate to glassware to eliminate breakages. They are then sealed in a thick, plain cardboard box/satchel. No information regarding the contents is visible. The words “Glass Bongs” or anything else that would indicate smoking related items is not used. Our packages are marked as being sent from “Patrick James Marketing”. You can safely have our parcels delivered to a work address, as there will be no indication of the contents inside.
What areas do we ship to?
We ship parcels everywhere in Australia nationwide. We ship to residential addresses, business addresses, PO Boxes and Parcel Lockers. We also ship to USA, UK & Canada for a flat rate of $35 AUD. For more specific shipping information CLICK HERE.
Are we the cheapest?
We strive to provide the highest quality and most affordable range of smoking products on the smoking market. We pride ourselves in providing exceptional customer service meaning that if you find an identical product with a competitor, we will either match it or beat that price. When comparing the quality of glass with our competitors, please be sure to ask for the weight or thickness of the glass to ensure that you are getting the best possible value for your money.
Why are high end Bongs so expensive?
High quality glass smoking products vary in price greatly. High end bongs are made in places like North America, Germany or Australia and so the pricing largely reflects: the quality of glass, the attention to detail, quality control, development and processes such as annealing that make borosilicate glass very strong and resistant to breakage from thermal stress.
Are our products genuine?
Absolutely all of our products are genuine. We do not sell fakes and we are active in stopping the sale of counterfeit and fake products in Australia. Counterfeit products are common in Australian smoke shops but not at Glass Bongs Australia. Our glass bongs are genuine and made in the country we indicate. If we say a bong is American, Australian or German made, we guarantee it is.
How are my personal details being used?
We can understand your reason for concern about the security of your personal and payment details. When giving us your personal details, they will only be used for the purpose of sending your order to you, or contacting you regarding your order, for instance if the courier is having trouble finding your address. A valid phone number, email address and postal address are required for us to send orders. Additionally, we use SSL protection and encrypted data storage of your personal and order information. Encryption ensures that no one can access or use your personal information!
How do I cancel my order?
If your order has not yet been paid and you wish to cancel it – please get in touch with us to cancel it for you. In the event that you wish to cancel your order after being paid, as long as the order has not already shipped, we can cancel your order. If your order has already shipped, unfortunately we cannot cancel your order. Please contact us if you have any further questions.
What do I do if I receive a broken product?
We apologise if you have received a product that has broken in transit. Despite our diligence with packing, we cannot fully prevent breakages. The day that you receive your order, please contact us immediately with a photo of the breakage, the box it came in and the address label. Please do not use the item and do not attempt to fix it. We cannot accept returns for used or repaired items. There are no exceptions.
If the item passes our first visual check we will send you detailed instructions on how to return the item.
You have three options for how you'd like to proceed from there.
1.) We can easily swap or exchange out your return for a new item, new item colour etc.
2.) We can issue you store credit for your return.
3.) We can issue a complete refund.
Do you have a store I can go into?
At this stage we are committed to the Australian online market. However, we endeavour to have a few pop locations very soon. Stay tuned! As is the case with most online stores, being online allows us to offer a wider selection than a shop. You can find any variety of glass pipe, bong, dab rig, and all parts and smoking accessories to meet your needs. Our website is especially convenient when you are looking for an accessory that is typically hard to find in a local retail shop. Without the expense of having shopfronts, being online also allows us to sell our products to you at the lowest prices with more deals and price comparisons.
Why is my discount not applying to products in my cart?
There are various reasons why discounts are not applied to particular products. Some of our products are custom made and have been meticulously set at a price to account for the design and manufacturing process for that specific product. Vaporisers are excluded from discounts as these are already competitively discounted. Pre-sale products are also excluded from any discounts, as these are similarly already heavily discounted at an exclusive Pre-Sale price for customers before being set to full price once the product is stocked at our warehouse. Discounts cannot be applied to any bundles as these are bundled together at a discounted price.
