The Fine Print
Returns received outside of 7 days (for full price) and 5 days (for pre-loved) may be accepted at the sole and absolute discretion of After Eight.
Returned items must be unworn, unused and in perfect condition with all original tags and packaging attached. Garments received soiled or with make-up marks will not be accepted for exchange or return and will be sent back to the customer at the customer’s expense.
Returns sent outside of the Return Request process must be sent via registered post or by other such means or carrier of your choice, which provides proof of posting and delivery. All returns sent to After Eight must have a valid tracking number. After Eight is not liable for items lost in transit. If After Eight has supplied your return shipping label (for a faulty item for example), you do not need to provide tracking details.
Where the items fail to be of acceptable quality, and the failure does not amount to a major failure, After Eight is entitled to choose between providing you with a repair, replacement or other suitable solution. Exchange of items is subject to availability and can only occur with in store purchases. After Eight classifies items to be faulty (i.e. not acceptable quality) if they are received damaged, or where a manufacturing fault occurs within 2 months of purchase. Items that are damaged as a result of wear are not considered to be faulty.
For international returns, After Eight recommends indicating on the packaging that the items are intended ‘Returned Goods’ or ‘For Exchange’ to avoid additional custom duties and taxes. Please ensure adequate insurance is taken for the safe delivery of your order. All international customers are obliged to pay for their goods to be returned.
None of the above affects your rights under Australian Consumer Law. Our pieces may come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law, for example you may be entitled to an exchange or refund for a major problem with your piece (or in some instances, repair or replacement if the pieces are not of acceptable quality) and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage.
