The 7 day cooling off period does not apply here as there are no sales of things such as houses, property, cars or generally anything that requires a written and signed contract. I imagine you could argue the point if you did have a legally binding contract written up, but let's just use logic and assume that will never happen here.
Protection for consumers regarding buying from a store is to do with the store's policy and their legal requirement to supply you with something that does what it is intended to do. In other words, a store does not have to refund money for anything you purchase. They may do so (or even exchange), but they are not required by law.
They must, however, supply you with what you purchased. If you buy a vacuum cleaner, it must work and do everything as advertised. If it doesn't, you are only entitled by law to a replacement.
As this is a community of people and not stores (TheGoodDr's affiliation with Figures Direct aside, obviously), none of these laws and practices apply here.
This is just a general outline going on the NSW Office of Fair Trading information, not actual legal advice and small differences are probably found between states, however it is highly unlikely that we will have a situation here that would ever need to become a legal issue (or at least not one that any court would take seriously).
Thanks TST, I've been meaning to outline this.
Updates coming soon folks, patience

Your score is listed to the left of your post. I think one of the mods will need to update everyone's trade scores though.
