Exchanges & Returns
It's free to exchange items for a different size, based on stock availability (this excludes Giveaways). If you are based outside the US you will need to pay duties and taxes on your replacement item.
To exchange an item, simply specify the new size you require when you request your Returns Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number through your account. For exchanges outside the US, you will be prompted to tick a box on the 'REVIEW & CONFIRM' page. You will see a breakdown of cost and this authorizes THE OUTNET to deduct the total taxes and duties from the original card used to place your order. If you selected PayPal when you placed your order, any applicable taxes and duties on your exchange should be paid with your debit or credit card.
Please note that we are only able to offer size exchanges. If you wish to exchange your item for an alternative style, we suggest that you return it for a store credit and purchase the new item separately.
THE OUTNET deducts $7.95 from your credit card/store credit refund to cover the cost of return of each order.
Please note that the shipping charge you paid when you placed your order is non-refundable (except for the return of faulty goods).

Please note that refunds can take up to 10 working days to show on your account due to varying processing times between payment providers.
