Exchanges and Returns
Exchanging or returning an item couldn’t be easier. Try your purchase on in the comfort of your own home and let us know straightaway if you’d like a different size or a refund and we’ll collect from your home, work or an alternative address.
You have 28 days from receiving your order to:
- Create your exchange or return in your NET‑A‑PORTER account
- Book your complimentary collection with DHL Express
- Send your purchase back to us
Items must be returned to us unused with all NET‑A‑PORTER tags and designer labels still attached. Returns that do not meet our policy will be sent back to you.
Need A Different Size?
There’s no cost to exchange your purchase, although if you’re based outside the EU, taxes and duties are applicable. If you wish to try another style, simply return it for a store credit refund and purchase the new item separately.

If you prefer, you can take your return to your nearest DHL Express service point.

To ensure your return is covered by our free returns policy and reaches us promptly, items must be returned from the same country to which they were delivered. Orders sent back from a different destination may incur additional charges or be delayed by customs.

Receiving a refund
You can choose to receive your refund either as store credit to your NET‑A‑PORTER account or back to the original payment method.
Please note that refunds can take up to 10 working days to show on your account due to varying processing times between payment providers. Your shipping costs will be excluded unless the item is faulty or canceled under the ICACRs.
If your order has been sent to a destination within the EU, all sales taxes will be refunded. Outside the EU, customs duties and sales taxes are non-refundable through NET‑A‑PORTER. However, you may be able to recover these by contacting your local customs bureau or by hiring a customs broker.
If your order has been sent to any of the following locations, you will receive a refund of all applicable taxes and duties when returning your purchase:
- Middle East: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates
We offer a flexible returns policy to make your online shopping experience even easier. We do monitor the number of returns made by customers and continued returns in breach of our terms and conditions will be flagged and may, at our discretion, lead to the closure of your NET‑A‑PORTER account or future orders being refused.
If this applies to your account, we will be in touch.
All products must be returned in a new and unused state, in perfect condition, with all protective materials in place and the NET‑A‑PORTER and designer tags attached to them (if applicable). This includes all packaging, accessories and authenticity cards/dust bags. We reserve the right not to accept any return if the product shows signs of wear or has been used or altered from its original condition in any way or, as an alternative, may reduce the amount of any applicable refund or exchange accordingly.
For example, we may make a reduction in the following circumstances:
- the product(s) have been used, worn, damaged or washed;
- the designer and NET‑A‑PORTER tag are not attached to the product(s) or have not been returned. Please note that the NET‑A‑PORTER and designer tags constitute an integral part of each product; and/or
- you have not returned any packaging which is considered an integral part of a product (such as a dust bag).
You will be informed if we propose to reduce your refund for this reason. In this instance, you may (as an alternative to us providing you with a reduced refund) choose to have the products sent back to you at your own expense.
Bags & Accessories
All designer packaging such as authenticity cards, dust bags and leather tags should be included with your return.
Please handle light-colored bags and accessories carefully if you are still deciding whether you will be keeping the item. Please note that dark items of clothing can transfer dye to light-colored bags.
