Making a Purchase
Orders may be made online using the secure Paypal method.
Changing your order
You cannot cancel or modify an order online once the checkout process has been completed. If there is a mistake in your order, please notify us immediately and quote your Order number so we can rectify any errors prior to processing your order.
Please do not assume your pet is the same size in every product, we stock many brands with differing sizing classifications so there may be variations between products. There is no such thing as a standard size when it comes to dog clothing. A skinny 5kg dog will wear a different size than a thicker 5kg dog. If you are buying a gift, ask the pet owners their sizes (neck, chest, length). Puppies will outgrow clothing and apparel, so please take this into consideration prior to making a purchase.
Payment & Security
Best Dressed Pets currently only accepts payment via a PayPal account. Paypal is the most secure payment method on the internet where no card number or financial information is recorded. With Paypal you don’t have to use a credit card, you can link your Paypal account with your general Bank account and fund payments by transferring small amounts of money back and forth whenever you wish to make a purchase. No bank information is needed to be entered into the www.bestdressedpets.com.au website. Visit Paypal's website for full details on how this can be done. www.paypal.com.au.
