How To Exchange Or Return
RETURNS PAPERWORK REQUIRED FOR NON-EU CUSTOMERS
Please ensure you fill out and sign all returns proforma invoices that came with your parcel to ensure smooth clearance with customs. Attach all copies securely to the outside of the parcel, ensuring they are visible and are able to be removed and checked by a customs operator before releasing your package. If the forms are not complete, your return will not pass customs and will be returned to you.
How to fill out the forms:
- Tick the items you are shipping back
- State the total value of the returned items in the "Total value of items shipped back” field
- Sign in the "Sign Here" field in the bottom left. The signature must be original on all copies.
If you need an additional copy of the returns proforma invoice, please contact us and we will provide you with a new one.

Receiving a Refund
You can choose to receive your refund either as store credit to your account on THE OUTNET or back to the original payment method. Your refund will exclude the initial delivery cost.
Please note that the refund time frame may vary depending on the payment method and processing times between payment providers:
- CREDIT CARD: Our bank will credit your account within 10 working days of receipt of your items
- PAYPAL: Your refund will be visible in your PayPal account within 24 hours of your refund email being sent
All sales taxes and/or duties are included in your refund.
All products must be returned in a new and unused state, in perfect condition, with all protective materials in place and THE OUTNET and designer tags attached to them (if applicable). This also includes all packaging, accessories and authenticity cards/dust bags. The Vendor reserves the right not to accept any return if the product shows signs of wear or has been used or altered from its original condition in any way or as an alternative, may reduce the amount of any applicable refund or exchange accordingly
For example, the Vendor may make a reduction in the following circumstances:
- the product(s) have been used, worn, damaged or washed;
- the designer tag and/or protective seal attached to the product(s) have been tampered with, removed or not returned. Please note that THE OUTNET tag constitutes an integral part of each product; and/or
- you have not returned any packaging which is considered an integral part of a product (such as the dust bag).
You will be informed if the Vendor proposes to reduce your refund for this reason. In this instance, you may (as an alternative to the Vendor providing you with a reduced refund) choose to have the products sent back to you at your own expense.
Your item(s) should be sent back to us within 28 days of receiving you order. Returns outside this timeframe may be accepted at the discretion of THE OUTNET and may only be refunded as a store credit.
ORDERS TO BELARUS, RUSSIA AND UKRAINE:
Due to the current situation, your item(s) should be sent back to us within 100 days of receiving you order. Returns outside this timeframe may be accepted at the discretion of THE OUTNET and may only be refunded as a store credit.
All shoes must be tried on a carpeted surface until you are 100% sure you are keeping them. Shoes should be returned unmarked and in their original, undamaged shoe box as this is considered part of the product. Shoes that are returned without a box, in a damaged box or with scratched soles will not be accepted and will be sent back to the customer.
LINGERIE AND SWIMWEAR
Briefs, swimsuits and bikini bottoms must be tried on over underwear, without removing the protective adhesive strip. Returns will not be accepted if this strip has been removed or if items are marked and will be sent back to the customer.
