Is my package insured and do I need to sign for my order?
All your purchases are insured against theft and accidental damage whilst in transit from NET-A-PORTER to your shipping address. Once your package has been delivered and signed for at your specified address, it is no longer covered. To ensure that your purchases arrive safely and in perfect condition, we require proof of delivery.
We can deliver to certain destinations without collecting a signature. If this option applies to your delivery address, you can update your preference on the shipping page before proceeding to purchase. If you choose to waive the signature, you accept our terms and conditions and take responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur.
How much duties and taxes will I have to pay?
Taxes and duties are calculated according to your shipping destination. To ensure that the most accurate pricing, taxes and delivery costs are displayed, please click on the link at the top of our website and select your country from the list of shipping destinations. The total on the order summary page will then show you a breakdown of the costs.
Most countries are shipped on a DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) basis, which means that all relevant import taxes and duties are included in the final purchase price.
Whereas when a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) destination is selected, the product prices displayed are exclusive of all taxes and duties, as well as UK VAT. So once your order arrives at its destination you will be required to pay all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you are shipping to, in order to release your order from customs.

Does NET-A-PORTER ship to multiple addresses?
We are only able to deliver to one address per order. If you would like to send your purchases to multiple addresses, we suggest that you place a separate order for each destination.
Why are some items marked as final sale?
- Fragrance, nail polish and aerosols cannot be returned or exchanged to due to transport restrictions.
Why are shipping restrictions applied to some items?
Due to international trading agreements and regulations, NET-A-PORTER must adhere to particular shipping restrictions.
As a result, we are unable to send exotic skins outside of the EU, and orders containing jewelry cannot be dispatched to Russia or China. In addition, some beauty products and items manufactured in China cannot be shipped to certain countries.
We are also unable to ship pressurised or flammable items by air at this time. Orders containing fragrance, nail and aerosol products must be delivered via our standard shipping option or our NET-A-PORTER Premier service (available in London). As we cannot deliver to certain postcodes, we suggest that you select a different shipping destination. Alternatively, you can contact our customer care team at +44 330 022 5705 to help you choose some other products you may wish to try.
If you add a product to your shopping bag that we are unable to ship to your country, you will be prompted to remove it. Alternatively, you can change your shipping address to a different destination where these restrictions do not apply.
For more information, please read our Shipping information.
Can I change or amend my order once it has been placed?
