Frequently Asked Questions


While the Dumb Ways to Die shop is still open and shipping orders, there are significant delays through our primary freight carrier (Australia Post). A number of countries have closed borders to freight deliveries and unfortunately we are currently unable to send goods to those locations.  Certain other locations are now receiving parcels by sea freight only, with estimated delivery times of up to 60+ days.

These delivery times are constantly changing as the situation progresses.
We recommend visiting the Australia Post International Updates page to see the latest information for your location.
