The amount of sales tax charged on your order will depend upon various factors, including type of item purchased, sales price and destination of the shipment. Sales tax regulations may change between the time you place an order and the time of credit card charge authorization and this may affect the calculation of sales taxes. The amount appearing on your payment page of the cart may differ from the sales taxes ultimately charged as indicated in the invoice you will receive with the shipping confirmation e-mail.
All prices are inclusive of customs and import duties.
Value vouchers are personalized codes which allow you to take advantage of a discount on your purchase on shoescribe.com.
The Promotional Code box is displayed on the first page of the Shopping Bag: after you have inserted your items in the Shopping Bag and entered your code, press Apply Code. In the pop-up window, you will need to select the item to which you wish to apply your voucher. Select the item and press APPLY. Value vouchers can be used only on a single item from your order, therefore the other item(s), if any, inserted in the Shopping Bag will not receive a discount.
Restrictions to the use of value vouchers:
If all of these conditions are satisfied, we will refund the value of the returned product(s), Sales Tax included, less any original shipping costs. If you send the package with UPS using the label provided to you, you will be charged $6.00 for return shipping costs. If you prefer you can send the return at your expense, with a courier of your choice. We will not issue any refunds for returns that do not satisfy all of the conditions indicated above; provided, however, that you will have the option to request within thirty (30) days of being notified that you are not entitled to a refund that your merchandise be shipped back to you, at your own cost, in the condition in which it was received by YOOX USA. If you do not request the return of your merchandise within said thirty-day period, YOOX USA will be entitled to dispose of such merchandise in its sole discretion.
Refunds are processed within approximately three (3) business days of our receipt of your merchandise. Your refund will be credited back to the same payment method used to make the original purchase on the US Site. If you paid by credit card, refund times will depend on the credit or debit card company’s policies. Be aware that the refund date for the credit will coincide with the date of the original payment, therefore you will not be charged any interest fees. If you paid by PayPal, refunds will be credited to your PayPal account and will be visible immediately. The date of reimbursement to the credit card associated with your PayPal account depends on the company that issued the card.
All our articles of merchandise come with a refund tag. Please try on your item before removing the refund tag, since we do not accept returns once the return tag has been removed, broken or damaged in any way. Shoes come with a sticker under the sole; if you remove or alter this sticker, you may no longer return your purchase.
CONDITIONS FOR THE EXCHANGE OF PRODUCTS
In certain specific cases, duly specified in the Returned Goods Form, you are allowed to replace purchased products with other products, instead of being refunded the relative price.
The request for an exchange is subject to the following conditions:
a. exchanges shall only be permitted with respect to certain products, such products shall be identified by the use of the word “REPLACEMENT” as indicated in the Returned Goods Form ;
b. exchanges will only be permitted for a different size or color or the product you originally ordered. The available exchange options will be indicated in the Returned Goods Form;
c. you may request the exchange of one or more purchased products within and not later than ten (10) working days from their date of delivery, by filling in the Returned Goods Form and sending it via electronic means to YOOX within the aforementioned deadline. The products to be replaced must be handed over to the forwarder within ten (10) working days of their date of delivery;
d. you may only submit a single exchange request for each product purchased;
e. the products for which you request the exchange must be returned to YOOX in their original condition and packaging, they must not have been used, worn, washed or damaged, and they must still have their identification tag attached with the disposable seal;
f. the products to be exchanged that belong to a single order must be returned to YOOX in a single shipment. YOOX reserves the right to refuse products of the same order that are shipped for exchange separately.
If all the above conditions are properly satisfied, once you have filled in and transmitted the Returned Goods Form containing your request for an exchange, YOOX will process said request by sending you a relevant confirmation email.
DEADLINES AND PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING EXCHANGES
After receiving the products you intend to exchange and verifying that all the above-mentioned requirements have been fulfilled, YOOX will verify the actual availability in its warehouses of the replacement products having the size and/or color you have selected.
If the selected replacement product(s) is not available in its warehouses, YOOX will not be able to accept your request for an exchange and will therefore refund you the price of the product(s) originally purchased, in accordance with the procedures specified iniYOOX’s Return Policy.
If the selected replacement product(s) is available in its warehouses, YOOX will accept your request for an exchange and will therefore send you an email confirming the shipment of the replacement product(s). In this case, shipment will occur within thirty (30) working days of the date in which YOOX becomes aware of your request for an exchange, once the company verifies that the latter fulfills all the above-mentioned requirements. The expenses for shipping the replacement products shall be borne by YOOX, with a courier to be selected by YOOX.
If the price of the purchased product is lower or higher than the chosen replacement product, you will not be granted a refund nor will you be required to pay the relative price difference; keeping in mind that your replacement selection will be limited to the same model as originally purchased (size and/or color may vary).
You will be contacted if your request for an exchange cannot be accepted due to your failure to fulfill the aforementioned conditions. In this case, you may choose to have the products you initially intended to exchange shipped back at your expense. Should you refuse this shipment, YOOX reserves the right to keep the products and withhold the amount paid therefor.
If you wish to exchange or return the replacement product(s) received by you, such return or exchange will be subject to a subsequent goods return procedure, pursuant to and within the limits of YOOX’s Return Policy.
