What payment options do you offer?
You can pay by Visa or MasterCard on The Bong Shop website.
Do you have a store I can go into?
Of course! We have 2 stores located in Canberra. One at 83 Petrie Plaza and the other within Tuggeranong Hyperdome Shopping Centre. We also have a store in Perth which can be found at 705-707 Hay Street. These stores sell everything you see on The Bong Shop website.
I’ve just received an email from The Bong Shop that asks for proof of identity? Is this legit?
Indeed it is. We take our customers security very seriously and occasionally we will ask for proof of identity before processing your order. We know that in most cases, orders are legitimate but we’d hate to let someone fraudulently place an order using someone else’s credit card. We would feel better to be safe than sorry. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this process.
To protect our customers from possible credit card fraud, our online security system is set at a high level. We may contact you if we require you to confirm cardholder details, when our security flags it for review.
I forgot my password! Help!
Don’t worry – you can reset your password here! Just click on the forgot password link before signing in to your account and we’ll send you an email with details on how to reset it.
Can I change my account details?
Of course you can! Just login to your account and go to your account dashboard. You’ll see all your account details listed and have an option to ‘edit’ if necessary.
Is it possible to cancel my whole order or an item within my order?
