How to Order

To place an order on this web site is a simple manner of browsing the products until you find what you are looking for.  If a product can be purchased, an `Add to Cart` or `Purchase Button` will appear next to the product.  By clicking this button you can add as many items as you like into your cart before clicking on a `Checkout` link or button to finalise your purchase.

Payment Methods Accepted

You have several options on how you can pay for your purchase.  They include...

Credit Card
We accept only Visa Card and Master Card.  We accept these details via our SECURE order page.

Direct Deposit
Where we offer direct deposit as a payment option we will email you our direct deposit details on confirmation of your purchase.  We will then await confirmation that your payment has been made before shipping your order.

Payment by Account will only be available to Trade customers and some schools. Approval for this will be given by ATA.

If you would like to establish an account please contact ATA.

Account customers will be asked for their account number or to enter their businesses name. 


Irrespective of whichever payment method is used, goods will only be shipped once payment has been received and confirmed.

Returns Policy

Returns will be accepted on the following basis.

All returns will be approved or rejected at Australian Teaching Aids` discretion.

Where a sample of the product is available on ATA`s website, ATA is not automatically responsible for accepting returns where there is a customer error.

A request to return can be made to ATA within 14 days of receipt of the product. The request must be in writing and submitted to ATA via fax, mail or email stating the reasons for return.

Approved returns will receive at the discretion of ATA any one it determines of the following:

  • Replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods
  • Repair of the goods
  • Payment of the cost of replacing the goods or acquiring equivalent goods
  • Payment of the cost of having the goods repaired
  • Providing a credit for the goods.

If it is agreed that goods are to be returned, a copy of the invoice must be included with the goods.

The cost of returning the goods will be the responsibility of the customer, unless ATA specifically accepts this cost.

It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that goods returned are packaged suitably and arrive in perfect condition. Any goods damaged while being returned will not be accepted and will be returned to the customer.

Where ATA is in error, a full credit will be issued at no cost to the customer.
