We purchased a number of Oroton bags on line. One arrived with faulty straps. We spoke to Kate and within a few days we received a replacement bag. The customer service was excellent and made very easy with no fuss. We are happy with our purchase and the customer service we received from Oroton.
Wrong Item > Right Item and a APOLOGY GIFT
I placed my online with Oroton during an explain 'moving of stock' from location to location. Not to mention, the panic of the Pandemic being added stress for Oroton.... they made a mistake with my order.
When the parcel arrived it seemed I had received another person's cute gold earrings and not my Handbag. I proceeded to get in contact with the international call service where I was on hold for no longer then 5mins. A kind help person 'Angela' was able to address the situation straight away! She assured me there had been a hiccup in the del...ivery and not to worry as another bag would be on the way FREE OF SHIPPING CHARGES. Regarding the earrings I received, she was kind enough to allow me to keep those as an apology from her team. My bag arrived within 2 days of that phone call. Angela was so helpful and kept me updated with the whole process of the shipping and processing of the bag from Aussie to New Zealand. So whoever 'Angela' is, she was awesome and really good to deal with. I am so pleased to have received my bag which is gorgeous and is of a high quality. Pleasure shopping with you Oroton!

Outstanding customer service
I had an item that had become damaged through no fault of my own. This item was possibly just outside of the warranty period and I could no longer find a receipt for it. My initial thought was to just chalk it up to experience but because we have always known great quality from our Oroton products I decided to contact their customer service team. The whole experience from contacting the customer service team down to the actual purchasing of another product for my needs was seamless and easy. They could not have done a better job of making sure ...that their customer base was looked after and made to feel like they were working with me to resolve the issue. They were so helpful and patient and ended up giving me a credit towards another product purely out of goodwill when in reality they were under no obligation to do anything of a practical nature. This more than anything gave us what is missing from retail in the modern era....good old fashioned customer satisfaction and by them doing so it has ensured that we will remain loyal to the brand when purchasing items into the future. Outstanding team effort.
Understanding customer service
I purchased a wallet from Oroton last year, and the printed leather turned grainy and began to rub off within a month. I tolerated it for a while but eventually the wallet began to look quite worn, so I finally contacted customer service. They were understanding, exceptionally clear in their instructions, and they processed the return and refund very quickly. Thanks guys!
Excellent customer service
Bought a tote bag at the online outlet, however when it arrived there was a white mark all the way down the top. I emailed customer service to find out what I could do. They emailed back almost straight away and let me know that because it was an outlet product I needed to take it to an outlet store for assessment. When I took it in store, the staff were so friendly and helpful. They cleaned up the bag and offered me a new one or I could take the original one. It was all cleaned so I took my original one back. Then online customer service even followed up with me. Don't get customer service like this, very much these days.

Got there in the end!
I originally bought a bag, which flipped open and tipped forward, resulted in everything falling out, each time I used it. I called to find out how to get a refund... but was told the bag would only be accepted for a full refund if in new, wrapped and unused condition. I explained that I couldn’t possibly know the bag would flip open on use, if I hadn’t used it. After much arguing, I asked for a Manager. The bag was finally refunded in full, and I then found they’d come out with a similar one - but which works perfectly... so I bought that one instead. Didn’t need the hassle, Oroton. Your products are great, but your customer care? Not so much!
Return policy/ sign up trap
I purchased something online and I signed up to get $30 off the product. I received my item and it wasnt right for me so went to the store to return it. I was told because I had got a $30 OFF the full price it was considered a sale item therefore the only option given was a store credit.
My point is what company nowadays refuse to refund you? We are in the 21st century, Even luxury brands refund you.
I really liked some of the stuff they do but now after this experience I won't
buy again until they change the return policy.
The Staff at Oroton Westfield are so friendly and helpful and really interested in their Customers and really go the extra mile to give great Service. They are so warm and friendly and the Shop is beautifully presented with lovely products. Very happy Customer!
Thank you Shakeela
At the Carindale store , for the great service , I recently had to return a faulty product to the store , your service and help was excellent thank you A .Shelley
Bad customer service
Having bought many bags at Oroton over the years, I expected better customer service when I tried to return a bag for an exchange recently. I had the receipt but not the tags. I spent $395 yet they would not exchange the bag without the tags. Will never buy from Oroton again
Bad Quality Jewellery
I bought a ring from Oroton and was specifically told the gold plating would not rub off, and if it did I would get a full refund. Truth behold the gold rubbed off and I was only allowed store credit and it took months to process.
Products are not well made
In the past two years two products I have purchased from Oroton were defective after 9 months use. A leather makeup case which is gorgeous the zipper broke within the first year. Oroton sourced out another one and exchanged it. Traveled around the word with the second replacement and after 6 months the zipper broke again. They didn't sell this make up case anymore and offered to give me a credit note, I didn't want a credit note because I loved the case so much. I found a very reputable bag repair company and they sourced out a brand new zipp...er and replaced it, it cost me $100 as it needed to be hand sewed. Their umbrella the large one with a wooden handle only used twice broke after trying to pull it down. It dis-attached from the top hence not being able to close again they don't stock the pretty cool pink colour anymore. Very disappointing. When their products were made in Australia they were very high quality unfortunately they are not made like that today. I gave Oroton another chance after having issues with their merchandise in the 2000's but yet again an epic fail.
Oroton go above and beyond for their customers.
My wife and I are very happy Oroton customers. My wife loves the high quality products but we can usually only afford to buy them when they are on special as we are a low-income couple without much to spare.
I don't know where the few negative reviews come from, maybe they are mistaking Oroton for someone else...
Last year we bought a beautiful bag (Roam Large Hobo) and my wife has been using it ever since. Unfortunately, a few weeks ago one of the ring-clasps that hold the strap fixed to the bag, broke... I contacted customer service via ema...il and advised them of the situation... Now, the bag was over a year old and thus outside of the Australian Consumer warranty period... I knew that and explained that I would be happy to pay for a new ring for the bag if it was possible. Also, I couldn't find out proof of purchase, so I didn't know if Oroton would be able to help at all... Within an hour, Ashley from customer service emailed me back saying that she had found the proof of purchase (must have searched for my name on the order) and that, unfortunately, the bag was sold out but that Oroton would happily give us a store credit as compensation (keep in mind, the bag was over a year old...).
Terrible customer service
Bought a lady’s bag on Friday night, took it out from the bag on Sunday night and found a default. I brought it back to Cairns DFO store and the seller refused to exchange as they thought it was due to my misuse/wear and tear not quality default.
This brand does not have any warranty, once you walk out of the door, they have nothing to do with it.
Treat customers as liars as apparently their bags are in perfect condition, any default would be made by the customer.
THINK: if something wear and tear in 2 days, is this thing of good quality?
Contacted the head office and ‘luckily’ I had it exchanged.
Just want to commend the Oroton customer service team. They were extremely helpful and fast to respond to my problem. Thank you Melanie and Peter, you resolved my issue on the spot and were lovely to deal with. I have been a loyal customer for 15 years and now I know why. Excellent customer service provided each time I deal with your team.
Such professional customer service!
On purchasing a clutch for my daughters 21st I found it to be faulty. I emailed customer service and their response was extremely prompt and extremely helpful. On Angela's recommendation I took the clutch into the Burnside store and was served by Courtney. Courtney assured me that I would receive a replacement clutch from Harbour Town within a few days. Her only concern was that it wouldn't be in time for my daughters 21st! Such wonderful warm customer service. Its so refreshing to deal with such professionalism.
Faulty Bag Resolution
I want to say thank you to Ashley & Angela at Customer Service for their quick and efficient handling of a problem I had with a faulty bag. Once the problem was brought up to them , they handled it quickly and a resolution was achieved efficiently. Well done to an Australian company & their great staff. Have been a customer for many years and will continue to buy their fantastic products.
Fantastic customer service at Oroton head office
I just wanted to share my positive experience with Oroton. I emailled Head Office regarding an issue I had with a purchase and in less than 1/2 hour, Angela (Client Advisor) responded and offered a solution.
I have purchased many products over the years and have never had any other concerns with the quality. After today's fast turnaround and level of service, I continue to be impressed. Thank you.
Questions & Answers
Hi I’ve stored my bag in the Oroton dust bag. I went to use it and found that the bag is stuck to the dust bag I tried to get it out but my bag is all damaged. I had to peel the dust bag off it and it tore to shreds. What should I do? Can this be fixed?
I was given a beautiful Oroton umbrella for a gift and therefore no receipt
The umbrella won’t stay open and the stem won’t extend
Is this a common problem
