Placing an order
When you place an order, you should receive an acknowledgment e-mail confirming receipt of your order. We then carry out a standard pre-authorisation check to make sure there’s enough money on your credit card or in your PayPal account.
We only accept your order once payment has been approved at which time the contract is made based on these terms.
You may be able to cancel (not change) your order within a short period of ordering – timings depend on your chosen delivery method (and will be set out in the acknowledgment email). You can’t change your order – you’ll need to cancel and/or return the original item(s), and re-order.
All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. Don’t worry, if there’s an issue with an order, we’ll get in touch with you.

Refunds / Returns
All our products are of the highest quality and your purchases are covered by the Australian Consumer Guarantee.
Please choose carefully when you purchase. As per Australian Consumer Laws, no refunds are available if you simply change your mind, found it cheaper somewhere else, decided you did not like the purchase or have no use for it.
Under Australian Consumer Laws you are entitled to Replacement or Refund if the product has a major problem. A major problem by Australian Consumer Law is defined as a product having:
- A problem that would have stopped someone from buying it if they’d known about it
- It is significantly different from the sample or description*
- It is substantially unfit for its common purpose and can’t easily be fixed within a reasonable time**
- It doesn’t do what you asked for and can’t easily be fixed within a reasonable time; or
- It is unsafe.**
- if an agreement has been reached between a customer and rawLight Design Pty Ltd to return goods, the buyer/customer is responsible for any charges of a freight carrier.
*rawLight always endeavors to produce items in their correct colourways. Actual finished products and their colourways may differ from sample pictures or from pictures on our website, mobile devices, social media pages and so on.
**When purchasing candles from us, you agree to the following criteria to keep you and your environment safe.
- Never leave burning candles unattended.
- Burn in an area free from drafts and flammable materials.
- Remove all packaging and place candle on a heat resistance surface.
- Keep wick trimmed to approx 0.3 to 0.5cm at all times to prevent smoking.
- When using aluminum and polyurethane tea lights and votives, it must be ensured that either cup is placed on non metal heat resistance surfaces to allow the tea light to burn at the correct temperature. This will avoid blackening of the aluminium cup and melting of the polyurethane cup and igniting the entire cup.
- Only the outer core of our coloured candles are coloured. This allows less colour to pollute the air and it creates a clean burning candle. It also is much better for you.
- Candles purchased from our Custom Candles pages with custom designed colourways do attract a design and revision fee of $69.50. 2 revisions are included in this price. Wholesale customers are required to purchase 24-48 candles depending on the design. No refunds or returns are accepted.
If you do have an issue with a product just contact the rawLight Customer Care team and they will be happy to help you.
