How to shop & place an order
Do I need an account to place an order?
No, all you need is an email address. We recommend that you register for an account to start adding pieces to your Wishlist, but, you can also place and track orders as a guest and sign up at a time that suits you.
I have forgotten my password: what should I do?
Simply follow the 'Forgot your password?’ link on our Sign In page and enter your email address. You’ll then receive an email to reset your password.
How do I receive Farfetch email updates?
Stay informed of new arrivals, trends and exclusive promotions by entering your email address at the bottom of our homepage. You can then manage your email preferences under ‘My Account’.
How do I place an order on your site?
It's easy! Here’s how:
Choose a category or designer from the top navigation menu or search to explore a specific style or trend.
Select your desired piece and click ‘Add to bag’. Once you've added all items, it's time to checkout under ‘Summary’.
Sign in to your account or, if you've not yet created one, proceed via guest checkout.
Enter your address, payment method and delivery details to complete your order. That's it – we'll confirm the order and it will be carefully prepared and shipped to you, with updates every step of the way.
Can I place an order over the phone?
Sure! Our friendly Customer Service Advisors are happy to assist you with this.
Where can I find size & fit advice?
Click on ‘Size Guide’ on the item’s page to view our conversion chart. We also provide fit information and model measurements for each style under the ‘Size & Fit’ tab.
Can I cancel my Farfetch order or make changes to it?
Yes. Contact our Customer Service Advisors to do so. We're unable to add items to an existing order but we welcome you to place a new order for any additional pieces. Find out more in our Return & Refunds Policy.
If you ordered a customised item, we can only accept cancellations up to 48 hours after you placed the order.
Farfetch pricing & payment
Why is Farfetch pricing special?
It's down to our unique business model. At Farfetch, you are shopping pieces from our luxury brands and partners worldwide, expertly curated for you by our team. Prices are determined by each Farfetch partner, so the price of the same item may vary depending on where it's coming from and your location. That's also why placing an item in your shopping bag or Wishlist won't reserve it at a particular price.
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 delivery destination at the top left 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?
This 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, but your bank or card issuer may reserve the order amount in your account immediately.
What payment methods do you accept?
- American Express
- Visa Electron
- Apple Pay
- Alipay (only available to China Mainland, Taiwan Region, Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR)
- UnionPay (only available to China Mainland, Taiwan Region, Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR)
- 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 instalments as payment, excluding Brazil.
Will my personal details stay safe?
Product availability & authenticity
Are you going to have my size again?
You can be the first to know! 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, we don't offer reservations.
Are FARFETCH items guaranteed authentic?
100%. Our offering is expertly curated by the best luxury fashion retailers around the globe and our retailers guarantee all items are authentic.
How will my order be packaged?
Your order will be carefully packaged in a protective Farfetch box — with branded dust bags if provided by the designer — to ensure it arrives to you in great condition.
Shipping, taxes & duties
How much will I be charged for shipping?
This varies depending on the size, weight and destination of your chosen items, and the cost will appear at the checkout. The good news is we 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, Manchester, Paris, Hong Kong SAR, Shanghai, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Seattle, 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. Need more information? It's here.
When will I receive my item and how can I track delivery?
Once your order is confirmed, we'll dispatch it within 2 business days. Delivery takes 2-7 business days, depending on your location and chosen shipping method. If you ordered from multiple Farfetch partners, your items will arrive separately and you'll receive separate delivery notifications.
Tracking information and an estimated delivery date will be provided. You can also follow its journey by heading to 'My Orders' in your account. Opted for guest checkout? Track your Farfetch order status here.
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 Mainland, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Singapore, Republic of Korea, Kuwait, Qatar, Israel, India, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan Region, Thailand, U.A.E, Japan, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Spain - Canary Islands, Hong Kong SAR, Egypt, Isle of Man and San Marino.
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, the price you pay to Farfetch will exclude all relevant import duties and sales taxes. As the recipient, you'll need to 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 pieces are distributed — so some may not be available to purchase in all regions. A selection of beauty products and exotic items may also be restricted by local customs in the country you are shipping to. Need to know more? Contact us.
