Terms and conditions

Welcome to  ministryofswimming.com  In this section we outline our store policies and try to cover all areas of the online shopping experience. If you think we have missed anything or have any suggestions, please email us at sales@ministryofswimming.com


We accept payment via credit card (MasterCard, VISA, American Express), via our secure payment gateway Eway,
Or direct bank deposits (For NZ customers only),
Or Paypal

Pay Pal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). THIS MEANS ITS SAFE AS!)

All personal info, address, email, credit card and banking details MUST be filled out correctly to ensure we can send your purchase expediently and correctly.



Ministry Of Swimming stock comes sends all over the world and sizes and styles are limited. We will try as hard as possible to give you the correct idea of sizing and if the items are available.

At times, you as a buyer may encounter the following situation with
our online store:

A product that you have selected to buy is listed as being in stock, however, because we are also a physical store as well as an online shop, the shopper in our physical store could be buying the product at the same time as you. So there is a possibility that you might try to buy a product online that is no longer available. If this happens we will happily apologize and refund you the full amount.

If you don’t see a ‘BUY NOW’ that’s because the product is super limited and sells fast in store and online. So email or call us and we can sort you out.

Because of small stock supply we do not hold items. The product shall be yours once full payment has been made. If we are getting new stock then we will notify you and send as soon as we have the stock back in store. If the product is coming from overseas then it could take 10-14 days.

Placing an order and making purchases
Orders will not be dispatched until payment in full has been received and hotgoggles is satisfied with the integrity of the order.

When we receive your order we’ll send you a confirmation email of your purchase.
This will contain an invoice number of the item and its cost
(as well as a tracking number, if applies) for its shipping.

As soon as we receive full payment we will send the item to you!

Please be advised that every country has different customs laws and your product may incur other charges whilst in transit.

Ministry Of Swimming is not responsible for these charges. But we will do our best to send it to you the cheapest, fastest and safest way we can.

Ministry Of Swimming collects customer info so that we can process your orders as efficiently as possible. We respect your privacy and assure you that we will use this information responsibly. All your info is kept on super secret files and we won’t be giving your info away to any other parties.
