Other/ Misc

Q: How often do you restock items?

A: It varies depending on the item demand, we may not always restock items so if you get in contact with our team at info@beginningboutique.com.au we will be able to confirm if a particular item is being restocked or not, we also cannot provide an exact date for when the garment will be back in stock, so we highly suggest signing up to the restock notification to be notified once an item has been restocked.

Q: How can I be notified if an item is being restocked?

A: If an item is out of stock in a size you are after, underneath where it says "sold out", there should be a pink box that says "email me when back in stock" if you click that, you will need to enter your details and you will be sent an alert once the item is back in stock.

A: We release new items 3 times a week - Monday, Wednesday and Friday so you will be sure to find something you love!

Q: Can I hold items in my cart?

A: If an item is in your cart this will not be held, the garment is not secured until the item has been purchased.

Q: How does the gift with purchase work?

A: You are required to add the gift to your cart, ensuring that no other promotions are being used on that same order and then the item will become free at the checkout.

Q: Why is my discount/ store credit code not working?

A: Please ensure that your order meets the criteria, and the items in the cart are eligible for the promotion. Please see our terms and conditions for more details. The full gift card code will need to be applied at the checkout separately. If you are still having any trouble please send us a screenshot of the page so we can look into the issue for you.

Q: I have not received a response to my email...

Due to the high volume of emails received, our team is working as quickly as possible to respond to each email.
Please note - As we work from oldest to newest, sending multiple emails will unfortunately push your email to the back of the queue, therefore taking longer to receive a response from us.
