- • Identify which products in your order you want to return
- • On the returns form, cross out any products you are not returning
- • For the products you are returning, fill in the 'Units' and 'Total Value' fields which are left blank for you (this is in case you purchased multiple units of the same product)
- • Fill in the 'Total value' field for the items you are returning
- • Fill in the 'Returns code' field - this is provided to you when you request a return online and is included in the returns note which is sent to your email address
- • A clear document envelope is provided in your delivery parcel. Place the completed returns form inside the envelope and stick this to the outside of your parcel
If the above steps are not followed, in particular if the returns form is not attached to the outside of your parcel using the included document envelope, this may result in delays in Selfridges receiving your returned products. We will not be able to process a return until we receive your products.
You can also return products to a Selfridges store. Please ensure that you bring the original delivery or collection note with you as proof of purchase. Returns will need to be processed in the Customer Services Lounge as they will not be able to be processed at our standard sales points.
