Our customer service team will assess and then contact you to proceed with the return, refund, repair or replacement process. We ask that you do not return the item without our authorisation.

    Unauthorised use of Buy Now Pay Later platforms, including Afterpay & other payment providers

    Rivercity House & Home Co takes the security of our customers extremely seriously. All reports of fraud will result in such transaction being escalated and reported to Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (ACORN) and the Australian Federal Police (AFP), as well as the payment service provider this transaction relates to. This may result in the closure of the account. No refunds or store credits will be issued in cases of unauthorised use of the payment service until approval is granted by either ACORN, the AFP or other relevant authorities at the conclusion of their investigation.

    Customers found lodging false claims will also have their accounts suspended and reports filed with ACORN and the AFP. False claims hurt small businesses, they are illegal and will be met with appropriate actions.

    As always, the Customer Support team at Rivercity House & Home Co is the first point of contact for all concerns.
