Exchange and refund policy

Are you looking to return or exchange unwanted merchandise? Here, you will find everything you need to know about our exchange policies, timeframes, and eligible items.

Return and Exchange Process

We offer a hassle-free returns and exchange policy within the United Arab Emirates (UAE). You have up to 14 days to exchange items for any reason from the date of receiving your online order or the purchase receipt.

To be eligible for an exchange, items must meet the following criteria:

  • Unused and in resalable condition, free from any damage or wear.
  • In their original condition with all original tags and packaging intact.
  • All included components, such as plastic wrapping, cables, ties, and product documentation, must be in the original packaging.
  • If your order included a free promotional gift, you must return the gift along with the related items.

Please note that the following items are non-exchangeable and non-returnable:

  • Items on sale or previously exchanged.
  • Personalized or made-to-measure products.
  • Bundled items sold together, which cannot be returned or exchanged separately.
  • Certain items, including skincare, makeup, cosmetics, underwear, swimwear, linen, furniture, perishable goods, and jewelry, except in cases of damage or faults as per global retail industry standards.
  • Deposits, Gift Cards, e-Cards, e-Vouchers, Gift Lists, and event tickets are non-refundable, non-exchangeable, and not transferrable for cash or other payment methods.

Online Return and Exchange Process

After receiving your item along with the receipt, we will process your refund/exchange as follows:

  • For non-faulty items, you can exchange the item for another or request a return.
  • Refunds will generally be processed using the original online payment method. Credit card payments may take up to 14 business days for refunds to be completed. Cash on delivery payments will be refunded with an e-voucher equal to the item's purchase price, valid for 12 months from the issuance date, usable both in-store and online.
  • If you wish to exchange an item without visiting the store, you can initiate a return and repurchase the desired item following the refund process. Please note that online exchanges are currently unavailable.
  • If an item is out of stock and already paid for, we will cancel it from your order, refund the out-of-stock items using the original payment method, and dispatch the remaining items.
  • We do not charge a restocking fee. However, please be aware that you are responsible for 'Return Shipping Charges' and 'Return Custom Charges,' if applicable. Original 'Shipping Charges' are non-refundable, and we will only refund the value of the returned goods.
