Exchanges Made Super simple
If you have already let us know what item you want to exchange your purchase for we will have already had it on hold ready to ship once your return arrives. If you need a few days to decide we will just issue you a store credit so you can buy your replacement item at your leisure. We are also happy to do a partial exchange and issue the remainder due to you as a store credit or refund - just ask!
Want store credit to shop payment free later?
Eligible returns will be given full store credit/exchange with no deduction for shipping charges. Within 48 hours of receipt of the returned item, you will be assigned a code that can be used for any future purchase(s). Your credit can be used for all or part of any item, and it will be applied to your total new order, including shipping (if applicable). Exchange codes are given based on what you paid for the returned item(s) with no shipping charges deducted. Credit codes have a one year expiry date.
Prefer a refund? We can do that
Eligible returns will be refunded less the actual shipping charges regardless of free shipping promotions. Within 48 hours of receipt of the returned item, you will be credited in the original manner the payment was processed, for the price of the item when purchased, less the actual cost of shipping, even if shipped under a free shipping promotion.
The nitty gritty on our return policy:
As an effort to keep our returns to a minimum we will charge a 20% restocking fee after three items have been returned in a one year time period from the same client/address. Numerous returns beyond this, within that same time period may mean a loss of return privileges.
Returned items that do not meet our return policies above may be refused and returned to you at your cost or we may negotiate to accept them, less the original shipping costs, with a 20% restocking fee applied and an issuance of store credit only. This is determined on case by case basis.
If goods are returned that are received damaged in any way through any circumstances, including the shipping method you chose to send by, no refund will be given until the damage is assessed and an estimate for repairs assessed. Once an estimate has been obtained it will be sent to you by email and you will receive any refund/credit owed less any of the following possible deductions which may include shipping, customs, repairs and cleaning or the full cost of the garment if deemed beyond repair. If items are deemed to be non-repairable they will be sent back to you and no refund will be given.
We sell some of our items through 1st Dibs and that means that very occasionally an item may have been sold there and not yet marked sold on our website. In that case a full refund will be given including any shipping paid. There also may be unforeseen circumstances where a sale may not be completed or merchandise is no longer be available. A full refund will be given including any shipping paid should this occur.
Shrimpton Couture and Shrimpton Corporation can be held in no way legally responsible if completion of the sale and delivery of the goods cannot be made and we have provided a refund.
