UK & international returns
Our Christmas returns policy
Over Christmas, we extend our Returns period – giving you plenty of time to return any gifts that aren't quite right.
1. Online orders
If you place an online order between 12 November and 5 December, you have until 7 January to return it by Royal Mail or courier. Alternatively, you have until 2 January to return it to one of our stores. For orders placed after 5 December, the normal 28 day returns policy applies.
2. Store purchases
Anything purchased between 12 November and 5 December can be returned to store by 2 January. For anything purchased after 5 December, the normal 28 day returns policy applies.
We hope you love your purchase but if you’ve changed your mind, no problem – all returns are complimentary. You have 28 days (except for promotional items – more info here) to return your item(s), whether purchased in store or from the point you received or collected your online order. If the item is new and unused, with all the labels and tags intact, and in its original packaging, you’ll get a full, no quibble refund.
3 Easy ways to return for free
1. In store
Store and online purchases can be returned to any of our four stores for a full refund or exchange. You’ll need your receipt or delivery note and payment card, unless you paid by gift card, e-voucher, PayPal or Alipay. If you return your entire online order, we’ll also refund the delivery charge.
2. By complimentary courier
If you would like to organise a complimentary return via our courier service, or you’ve lost your Royal Mail returns label, simply follow our returns portal link below. In just a few steps, we’ll have it sorted. Easy!
Online orders can be returned free of charge at any Royal Mail Post Office in the UK. Simply enclose the returns form, attach the pre-paid returns label to the front of your parcel (customers outside the UK can create a pre-paid returns label via the returns portal), and take it the Post Office or local postal provider. We advise you get proof of posting for peace of mind.
How to exchange your purchase
You can exchange your purchase in any of our four stores. If you’re returning your purchase by courier or post, we can only offer you a refund and not an exchange.
Please note: a few brands (including Christian Louboutin and some of our fine jewellery boutiques) have their own returns rules – click the Return Exceptions tab to find out more.
We aim to get your money back to you as soon as you’ve returned your order, and if you return your entire online order from within the European Union, we’ll refund the delivery charge too. Unfortunately, we are unable to refund items lost or damaged in transit.
Debit or credit card payment
Our refund will be issued to your original payment card within five days of us receiving the returned item(s). However, some payment providers can take up to 14 days to credit your account. When the return is processed, we'll send you and email confirming your refund.
Gift card or e-Voucher payment
If you return your item(s) to one of our stores, you’ll be refunded on a Selfridges gift card. If you return by post/courier, your refund will be given in an e-voucher.
Paypal or Alipay payment
If you return your item(s) to one of our stores or by post/courier, your payment will be refunded to the same Paypal or Alipay account.
International tax, duties, charges and delivery refunds
Unfortunately, for orders shipped outside the European Union, we’re unable to refund any taxes, duties, charges or delivery costs you may have paid when placing your order. You will be refunded the tax-free price of the products returned.
