Online Differences

We aim to for excellent customer service both in-store and online, however there will be differences between our online store and our depots. Prices may vary online to in-store. Prices advertised on this site are for Steve Jones Online and may not apply in-store. Also, there are different quantity limitations online; we rarely have minimum orders in-store. If unsure, call us. Because it takes some time to process online orders, delivery windows are vaguer online. For specific and quick confirmation of delivery times, it may be preferable to order in-store or by phone.    

Payment Methods Online
We ONLY accept Visa and MasterCard via the secure payment gateway from the Commonwealth Bank called CommLink.

PLEASE NOTE:
We do NOT accept American Express, Diners Card, cash on delivery (COD), bank cheques or Australia Post Money Orders for payment online.
