Your pack will include different pad brands to give you a chance to sample pads made by different pad makers. We will maintain a list of which pads each subscriber receives, so that we can make sure you get a nice variety each time.

We try to make sure that each pad you receive is from a different pad-maker, however depending on the type of pad you have ordered and which pad-makers we have available in a given month, this may not always be possible.  For example some of our pad-makers do not make pads over 14”, so if you have selected pads in the 14” – 16” size range, you will not receive pads from any pad-makers who do not make to that length.

We offer several pack types, so that you can choose pad lengths and absorbencies to suit your needs. Since different pad makers offer different lengths of pad, you are unable to select a specific pad length, however we offer 2 length range options for each subscription option, to help provide you with pads of a suitable length. In the “Notes” section you can specify that you would prefer pads be at the shorter or longer end of the range.

Each pad will come with a small tag attached that gives information on which pad seller made that pad, what the absorbency is and if it has PUL in it. In addition, each pad seller will have a care & instruction sheet available on this website, to give you any further details about their pads and any washing instructions.

“Light” – $40-$46 (Approx $48-$54 value) – This pack has 3 Pantyliners/Light-flow pads. These pads may be suitable for light flow, spotting, menstrual cup backup or everyday freshness. Depending on your particular needs. Our definition of “light” means that these pads have the equivalent of 2 layers of Flannel in their composition. No waterproofing.

“Moderate” – $48-$54 (Approx $56-$62 value) – This pack has 3 Moderate absorbency pads. These pads may be suitable through most days of your period or for mild stress incontinence. If the pads have PUL, they may be suitable for heavy days if changed regularly. Our definition of “Moderate” means that these pads have the equivalent of 4 layers of cotton flannel or 1 layer of Zorb in their composition. You may also choose to have PUL in these pads or not, at no extra charge.

“Heavy” – $55-$61 (Approx $63-$69 value) – This pack has 3 Heavy absorbency pads. These heavy absorbency pads may be suitable for heavy days, overnight use or for mild stress incontinence.

You may also choose to have PUL in these pads or not, at no extra charge.

Pack values are calculated using average retail pad pricing from our pad-makers for the pad types in each pack, plus the cost of the other contents of the pack (food treats, surprise goody, magazine printing and handling fee).   The saving per pack is due to the fact the pad-makers are offering discounted pricing on their pads for these packs to help give you a great deal.

The packs are all posted on the 30th of each month (If that date falls on a public holiday or weekend, it will be posted on the closest business day). It will take approx 2-5 business days for you to receive your package

Your first pack will be posted the following month after you subscribe.  For example, if you subscribe by the 20th of  August your first pack will be sent on 30th September, and you’ll receive it in the first few days of October.

Why so long? – On the 1st of each month our team of pad-makers start making the pads for the packs that were ordered the previous month. These are then sent to The Shark Box headquarters (lets call it “padquarters!”) where they are packaged up with all the other goodies, ready to send out on the 30th of the month.

We need an entire month to allow our pad-makers time to make the pads (they are very busy sewing for other customers and their own stores too!) and to allow transit time from the pad-makers to “padquarters” (which can take awhile as some of our pad-makers are across the other side of Australia from or “padquarters”).  This month wait time ensures everything is ready and packaged by the end of the month without causing too much stress for our padmaking team.

Theme packs for special months IE, Halloween and Christmas, you will purchase those when they become available and they will be shipped at the beginning of that month.

Please make sure you have read through the Information, so that you know how this service works. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us

When you subscribe to this service, your order will be processed and a pack will be designed for you. The orders for the pads for your pack will be given to the pad-makers on the 1st of the month. Your pack will be posted to you on (or around) the 30th of that month. (If the 30th is on a weekend, your pack may be posted a day before or a day after). Depending on your location, you should receive your pack between the 1-7th of the month. If you cancel the subscription after a pack has been packaged for you, you will not be able to be refunded for that pack.

We will send all packages via USPS, to provide proof of postage and a tracking number should be automatically emailed to you once the package has been Sent. “The Shark Box”, “Cloth Pad Shop” nor any individual pad makers connected to this service will be responsible for any loss or damage that occurs during transit. However if there is a problem, we will work with USPS to try to rectify this to the best of their ability.

We will post your Shark Box to the address listed in paypal. You must make sure that the address listed in paypal when you subscribe is your correct address. If you change your address, you must change this within your paypal subscription so that we have a record through paypal of your new address.

Paypal will automatically bill you each month’s subscription, for a total subscription length of 3 months for the AIO or Scrundies packs. After this, your subscription will stop, and if you would like to continue receiving the Shark Box (we hope you will!), you will need to subscribe again. You can cancel the subscription at any time, however if you cancel the subscription after the Shark Box has been created for you for that month, we will be unable to refund your payment for that month.

This subscription service is for “mystery” pads – as you are unable to select the actual pads you will receive. We have options for you to select when subscribing, to help us tailor the pads to your needs. While we endeavor to make pads you will love and find useful, we are unable to accept returns or exchanges for any pads or other items in your Shark Box.

It is your responsibility to order pads that suit the type of flow you have. Our usage of the terms “Light”, “Moderate” and “Heavy” in relation to the absorbency level of pads, and the associated fabric layering to achieve these levels is based on a standard system used by many pad-makers. While we do our best to make a good product, we cannot guarantee pads will not leak or that they will be a perfect fit for you. If you choose not to have “PUL” (polyurethane laminated fabric, used in the cloth pad industry for “waterproofing” or “leak-proofing”) in your pads, be advised that your pads may have no leak-resistance at all. You may request leak-resistant synthetic fleece in the notes, however this will only be provided if the pad-makers have this fabric in stock (not all of our pad-makers offer this option)

If you have a faulty item, we encourage you to contact the pad-maker who has made that item (Each pad has a label that will let you know who made it), and resolve the issue with them. Please also contact The Shark Box to let us know of the issue, so we can make sure that it is resolved for you.

Please be aware that the surprise goodies, samples, treats and other such items cannot be exchanged or refunded. We hope you enjoy your extras, but if there is anything in your pack you really do not like, please let us know so that we can make a note not to give you those items in any future packs.

If you have any allergies/intolerances or other factors that could cause issues with items that may be sent to you in your Shark Box, you must let us know when you subscribe so that we can make a note of this and exclude them from your packs. Where possible we will substitute these items for something that will not be a problem for you, but we cannot guarantee that your pack will contain the same amount of items if we are forced to omit things. Please note however that all food items are stored together (so there may be a risk of cross-contamination) and the pads may have been made or stored where there are pets such as cats.

Examples of potential items that may be included in the packs (but are not limited to): nuts, chocolate, coffee, lollies, herbal teas, soaps, candles, soy wax melts, mineral makeup, lip balm, body/facial care products.
