PREPARE YOUR PARCEL
Remove any original shipping labels and attach the pre-paid return label which was sent with your order to the outside of the box. Keep your parcel open so that the contents can be checked on collection, and then seal it for the courier to return to us.
If you'd like to track your return on the courier's site whilst it's on its way back, make a note of the tracking number on the label.
Make sure that all the items you wish to return from your order arrive back with us together in one parcel, so we can process your exchange or refund as quickly as possible.
WAIT TO HEAR FROM US
Once we’ve received and completed your exchange or refund, we'll send you an email to update you.
We aim to process your return within 3 working days of receiving your order. However, during busier periods it may take slightly longer.
To ensure your return is covered by our complimentary returns policy, please send it back from the same destination it was delivered to. Should you choose to send your purchase back from an alternate location, and use a different courier:
- You’ll be responsible for any additional charges
- Your return may be delayed if held at customs
- We’ll be unable to issue a refund if your purchase isn’t sent back to us at the original location
Alternate Return Methods
We recommend that you return items to us via our shipping carriers so that they are protected and insured during delivery. However, you can return your order by any secure means. If you are using an alternative returns option, please notify Customer Care. Our returns address is:
YOOX NET‑A‑PORTER GROUP S.p.A - THE OUTNET Blocco 15.1 Interporto 40010, Bentivoglio ITALY
Please note that we will not accept liability for goods that are not returned via our shipping partners.
Receiving a Refund
Refunds will be credited to the payment method used to place the order and 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 are included in your refund if your order has been sent to a destination within the EU. Outside the EU, custom duties and sales taxes are non-refundable on both refunds and exchanges.
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 return should be sent back to us within 28 days. Returns received outside of this timeframe will only be accepted at our discretion.
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.
Technology products must be returned in the original packaging.
Goods are classified as faulty if they are not of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose or as described. Please note that items which are damaged or as a result of normal wear and tear, by accident, or through misuse will not be considered faulty.
If your item is faulty when you receive it, you can return it for a refund within 30 days from the date you received it. If you have owned your item for longer than this, and certainly over 6 months, then please contact Customer Care.
We make every effort to display the colors of our products as accurately as possible. However, as computer monitors, tablets and mobile devices may vary, we can’t guarantee that your screen's display of a color will be completely accurate.
We offer a flexible returns policy to make your online shopping experience even easier. We do monitor the number of returns made by customers, and continued returns will be flagged and may, at our discretion, lead to the closure of your account or future orders being refused.
