Most frequently asked questions for Eqalizr

GENERAL FAQ'S

The quick answer is Yes! You can be sure that the owner (Adrian Price) is 100% gay and tries to employ all gay staff when able. Sometimes we employ straight allies when they have the right skills for the work required. 

Long ago, we made the choice to only sell online to have some control over who buys Eqalizr branded items so that our community can be assured that only gay people are wearing it. We’re also mindful that broad global exposure through physical stores could take us to places that we don’t necessarily want to go in a world of prejudice.

Does this limit how we can advertise? Yes, so we need your help to tell your ‘confirmed’ gay and bisexual friends about Eqalizr so we can all wear it with quiet gay confidence.

CLOTHING CARE AND WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

We think there’s only one thing worse than dropping your iced coffee, and that’s not caring for your new ‘threads, so we’ve put together a few helpful tips to care for your favourite threads.

READ THE CARE LABEL

From t-shirts and bags to leggings and hoodies, we’d always recommend reading the care label on your new items before washing them. It seems like an easy one, but doing this first will help you avoid any washing, drying or ironing errors at the wrong setting. So read the care label and make sure you understand those symbols, too!

WASH YOUR CLOTHES INSIDE OUT

We’re just being honest here – sweat, dead skin cells and bacteria accumulate on the inside of your garments, which can cause it to smell worse than your sneakers after a run. By washing your clothes inside out though, will ensure a more thorough clean – that’s a win!

WASH AT LOW OR COLD TEMPERATURES

We really want to help here – Washing on too high a heat can waste a lot of energy, so save that energy to hit your next personal best at the gym and wash your threads at 30°C or below where you can.

AVOID THE TUMBLE DRYER

All that heat and agitation from tumble drying will shorten the lifespan of your threads and we don’t want that! Wherever possible, air dry them to preserve their elasticity, logos, embroidery and prints for longer. Air drying will also save energy and greenhouse gas emissions, so you can do your bit for the environment when caring for your threads.

We don’t really have set criteria when we choose our ambassadors, as all our ambassadors are so unique.

Our Partnerships Team regularly scout talent based on their content and ensuring their values align with our own. If you think you align with the Eqalizr vibe of quiet gay confidence then you can apply via the Brand Ambassador Page giving us as much information as you can relating to your gay following and how you’d be a good match. Good Luck.

Please note that you must be 18+ years of age to become an Ambassador.

I’M MISSING SOME ITEMS FROM MY ORDER

We’re sorry if something’s missing from your order, but don’t worry, it could be because we’ve only shipped part of your order, and the rest of your order will arrive a few days later.

CHECK IF YOUR ORDER WILL ARRIVE IN SEPARATE SHIPMENTS

You can check if your order will arrive in separate packages via your shipping confirmation email titled “Your order is on the way“.

This can happen due to stock availability, meaning sometimes items have to be sent from different warehouses. If this does happen, you may receive another email titled “Some items in your order are on the way” containing further information, and the remaining item(s) will arrive shortly afterwards.

CHECKED YOUR ORDER IS CORRECT BUT STILL MISSING AN ITEM?

We’re sorry about that!

The item(s) missing may have been out of stock. If we’re unable to fulfil item(s) in your order, we’ll have sent you an email about this – It’s worth checking your junk/spam folder too!

If you’ve checked the above and your order isn’t arriving in separate packages, and we haven’t let you know some of your order is out of stock, please let us know so we can look into this for you through the Shopping Help link on your Eqalizr Account Dashboard. Please be sure to add all relevant details like your order number.


I’VE RECEIVED A DIFFERENT ITEM TO WHAT I ORDERED

In the unlikely event you’ve receive a wrong item or the wrong order, or your order is damaged in any way, please contact us with the following information via the Refunds and Exchanges link on your Eqalizr Account Dashboard and we’ll get it sorted;

  • Your order number
  • The name of the item you didn’t receive
  • A photo and the name of the item you have received (if the wrong item)

FYI – All claims for orders arriving damaged, or with missing/wrong items must be made within 7 days of the delivery date.

 

CAN I CANCEL OR MAKE A CHANGE TO MY ORDER?

Unfortunately, we’re unable to make any changes to your order once you’ve hit ‘Place Order’ at checkout, this includes:

  • Changing the item or size

  • Delivery/billing address

  • Adding/removing items to your order

  • Shipping method

However, there is a 15-minute window where you can cancel your order by locating the order either in your confirmation email, or in your account section, and hitting the ‘Cancel Order’ button. Check your orders here.

Once this time has passed the order can’t be cancelled, however you can start a return/exchange once delivered via the Refunds and Exchanges link on your Eqalizr Account Dashboard.

 

Input the incorrect address at checkout… Sadly, we can’t change an address with the courier via our system once the order is completed and placed with Australia Post, however it is possible to redirect it via the Australia Post App.

You can download the Australia Post App here for free:

APPLE

ANDROID

Just login to the app and lookup your tracking number for your order delivery details.

If your order hasn’t been delivered you can create a delivery address redirect within the Australia Post App. For international orders where a partner courier has been used, it may not be possible after the courier company transfer and you may have to contact the designated partner courier directly in YOUR country.

If for any reason your order can’t be delivered, the courier will return it to us and you’ll receive an automatic refund once the parcel has reached our warehouse. You can keep an eye on your tracking information for any updates via the Australia Post App.

If your order hasn’t shipped yet, please wait until you receive your tracking email so you can provide the courier with the tracking number and they may be able to amend this for you if you haven’t been able to change it via the Australia Post App.

If your order has been transferred, please contact the partner courier directly ASAP as they may be able to help. The Australia Post App will show what partner courier is being used.

Important to know… If you input the incorrect address at checkout, and the order goes missing or is delivered to that location, we cannot be held accountable to refund or replace the order to your preferred location.

WHAT IS CUSTOMS DUTY?

When goods are imported into a different country or customs territory, there can be a charge applied called ‘Customs Duty’ that is charged by the local customs authority where the goods are being imported into.

If Customs Duty is required by your territory, you’ll be responsible for paying it to the authorities. Whether Customs Duty is payable, and by how much, depends on your countries specific regulations.

If you do have to pay Customs Duty though, the amount payable is usually calculated based on the value of the goods and the type of goods being imported.


DO I NEED TO PAY CUSTOMS DUTY FEES AT EQALIZR?

You don’t need to pay customs fees when shopping via USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Norway, Switzerland, France, Germany, Netherland & EU locations.

For all other locations, you may face customs charges issued by your local customs authority. Please see below for further information.

WHAT IF I DON’T PAY THE CUSTOMS DUTY?

If you decide to refuse the customs fee, we must confirm with the courier that your parcel will be returned back to Eqalizr before processing a refund for your order and in some instances a shipping and handling fee may be deducted from your refund.

If you’re still unsure on whether you’ll be subject to customs fees, we recommend contacting your local customs office for more information before placing your order with us.


WHAT IS A SALES TAX?

Sales Tax, also known as GST, is a tax charged on the supply of goods or services. Eqalizr ships from Australia, so we’ll charge you the GST Sales Tax as part of the checkout process (generally included in the cost of the items except for gift cards). We collect Sales Tax from you on behalf of the local tax authorities and we then pay this directly to the local tax authority.
