HOW TO SHOP & PLACE AN ORDER
DO I NEED AN ACCOUNT TO PLACE AN ORDER?
An email address is all you need to start the order process. We recommend that you register for a Farfetch account so that you can start adding your favourite pieces to your wishlist and easily place an order.

FARFETCH PRICING & PAYMENT
WHY IS FARFETCH PRICING SPECIAL?
At Farfetch, you are shopping pieces from our luxury brands and partners around the globe, expertly curated for you by our team. Prices are determined by each Farfetch partner, therefore the price of the same item may vary depending on your location and where you order an item from.
Although we don’t have any control over price variation, we will always offer you the best price available to your destination at the time of purchase. To view the most accurate prices, select your shipping country from the ‘Location Preferences’ menu at the top right corner of our site.
Please note: Placing an item in your shopping bag or wishlist does not reserve it at a particular price.
WHICH CURRENCIES CAN I SHOP IN?
The currency that you shop with is determined by your shipping destination and will be displayed at checkout before completing your purchase. If your local currency is unavailable, your order will be charged in USD for a competitive exchange rate.
WHEN WILL MY CARD BE CHARGED?
If you pay by debit card or PayPal, Farfetch will take payment at the point your order is placed on our site. If you pay by credit card, full payment is usually taken once your order is ready for shipping, though your bank or card issuer may reserve the order amount in your account immediately.
WHICH PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?
- American Express
- Visa Electron
- Alipay (only available to China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau)
- UnionPay (only available to China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau)
- JCB (only available to Japan)
- iDEAL (only available to The Netherlands)
- Sofortbanking (only available to Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium)
Please note: We do not accept cash on delivery or installments as payment, excluding Brazil.
WILL MY PERSONAL DETAILS STAY SAFE?
PRODUCT AVAILABILITY & AUTHENTICITY
ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE MY SIZE AGAIN?
To be notified if a sold out item becomes available again, click on 'Size Unavailable?' on the item’s page, select the size you need, and then enter your email address.
CAN I RESERVE AN ITEM TO BUY LATER?
We aim to provide a fair opportunity to shop our most in-demand styles and as items are often limited, reservations are unavailable. As a result, placing an item in your shopping bag or wishlist does not reserve it.
ARE FARFETCH ITEMS AUTHENTIC?
Our offering is expertly curated from the best luxury fashion around the globe and we guarantee all items are authentic. Authenticity cards and serial numbers may not always be included with your item if the designer has not supplied them.
HOW WILL MY ORDER BE PACKAGED?
Your order will be carefully packaged in a protective Farfetch box to ensure it arrives to you in great condition. Additional branded items such as dust bags will be included if provided by the designer.
SHIPPING, TAXES & DUTIES
HOW MUCH WILL I BE CHARGED FOR SHIPPING?
Every Farfetch order is unique so our shipping costs vary depending on the size, weight and destination of your chosen items. This information will appear at the checkout. We also offer One Shipping Fee for orders above a certain threshold – this means you can purchase multiple pieces from multiple locations for one fee.
Find out more about One Shipping Fee.
DO YOU OFFER SAME DAY DELIVERY?
We offer a same day delivery service in some of the world’s major cities – including Berlin, London, Paris, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Milan, Rome, Barcelona and Madrid - when you shop from a Farfetch partner in that city. Simply order before 11am to receive delivery that same day, and after 11am for the next business day.
For further information please click here.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY ITEM AND HOW CAN I TRACK DELIVERY?
Once your order details are confirmed, your item will be carefully prepared and sent on its way within 2 business days. Delivery will normally take 2-7 days after dispatch, depending on your location and chosen shipping method.
We will keep you updated with tracking information and an estimated delivery date. You can also follow the progress in your Farfetch account under ‘My Orders’. If you ordered from multiple Farfetch partners, please bear in mind that your items will arrive separately.
CAN I COLLECT MY ORDER?
You may be able to collect your order from a convenient location near you; simply select 'Click & Collect' at checkout to view your options. If available, we will confirm when your package is shipped and then ready for collection.
WILL I NEED TO PAY TAXES AND DUTIES?
Farfetch ships to the following destinations on a DDP (Delivery Duties Paid) basis:
European Union, USA, Canada, China, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Singapore, Republic of Korea, Kuwait, Qatar, Israel, India, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Thailand, U.A.E, Japan and Mexico.
This means that all applicable taxes and duties are included in the final purchase price when you place your order and there are no additional costs due upon delivery.
If a DAP (Delivery At Place) destination is selected (i.e. customers located outside of the above listed countries), the price you pay to Farfetch will exclude all relevant import duties and sales taxes. As the recipient, you must instead pay these directly to our carrier to release your order from customs upon arrival.
For US customers, Farfetch does not collect sales or use tax in all states. Your purchase may be subject to sales or use tax, unless your state is exempt from taxation. Many states require a sales/use tax return filing at the end of the year for taxable purchases that were not taxed (including internet purchases) and payment of use tax on those purchases.
For more details, please contact your local customs office/respective tax authority or view our ‘Duties and Taxes’ information.
WHY CAN’T CERTAIN ITEMS BE SHIPPED TO ME?
While Farfetch ships internationally, the brands on our site can determine where their goods are distributed and some items may not be available to purchase in every region. Some beauty products and exotic items may also be restricted by local customs in the country you are shipping to.
Please note: Real fur and exotic skins cannot be shipped to the state of California. We are also unable to ship jewellery (including costume jewellery) or fur goods to Russia. Feel free to contact us for further information.
RETURNS & REFUNDS
WHAT IS YOUR RETURNS POLICY?
If your purchase isn’t quite right, you can return it for a refund within 14 days of your delivery date using our free returns service.
We recommend that your item is sent back within 7 days of receipt to ensure it will be returned to the original location in time. If you would like to exchange an item, you will need to return it and place a new order. Simply go to ‘My Orders & Returns’ in your Farfetch account to arrange a return, or contact our friendly Customer Service Advisors for assistance. For further information on returning an order, view our Return & Refunds Policy.
HOW DO I BOOK A FREE COLLECTION OR RETURN IN STORE?
To book a free collection, go to ‘My Orders and Returns’ and then ‘Return Order’ in your Farfetch account. Select return ‘By courier’ as well as your collection date, and we will send you a confirmation email with the next steps.
If you would prefer to drop off your return, select the ‘In-store’ option instead. Prepare your package with the documents included in your order, and take it to your chosen location along with our returns confirmation email.
Returns shipped within the US can be conveniently dropped off at any UPS store.
HOW DO I PACKAGE MY ITEM FOR RETURN?
Simply follow these steps to prepare your item:
Place any unwanted items with original packaging inside the protective Farfetch box and leave it open until the driver has checked the contents.
Attach the return label and a signed copy of the return note to the outside of the Farfetch box. Please do not to attach any labels to an item’s branded box.
If you are returning to multiple locations, please pack the items separately for each of our partners, with a corresponding return label attached to the outside of each box.
Find out more about preparing your parcel for a return.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY REFUND?
Using the tracking number assigned to your returns label, you can follow the progress of your package with our courier. As soon as your item is received and accepted by our partner we will send an email to confirm the completion of your refund.
Refunds are issued via the original payment method and will normally appear within 10 business days, depending on the processing time of your payment provider. To ensure your refund is as quick as possible, please ensure all items meet the conditions of our Returns & Refunds Policy.
WILL SHIPPING & DUTIES BE REFUNDED ON RETURN?
While we offer free returns for all orders, the original delivery cost won’t be included in your refund. If you have shipped an order to a DAP (Delivery At Place) country, taxes and duties are non-refundable through Farfetch. You may be able to recover these by contacting your local customs office directly. If you have shipped an order to a DDP (Delivery Duties Paid) destination, taxes and duties are refundable through Farfetch.
CAN I RETURN MY CUSTOMISED ITEM?
Due to the nature of customised orders, and the fact that they have been specially created for you, we will not be able to accept returns.
