How can I exchange an article?

You can exchange items by returning the item(s) to be replaced and then immediately placing a new order on our website. This means that you can see whether the item is still available.

If you place a new order to replace your unwanted item(s), you should bear in mind that you will need to pay for this new order in advance or that you will receive a second invoice.

Unfortunately, due to technical reasons we cannot offset orders against each other.

Unfortunately, you CANNOT request a replacement item using the return form. Due to technical reasons we also CANNOT replace or offset items or place a new order for you.

When will my money be transferred back to me?

We will confirm the arrival of your returned goods by e-mail immediately on receipt. The amount payable will then be transferred to your bank account within 1 week of this confirmation. If you are paying by credit card from outside the Netherlands, then we will credit the refund to your credit card account. How long it takes for the refund to reach your account depends partly on the bank or credit card company and is therefore partly beyond our control.

Why are the carriage costs not refunded?

We regret that the original carriage costs for your order will not be refunded. Of course this will not apply if we have sent an incorrect or damaged item.

You have refunded the incorrect amount.
