Can you hold items for me in store?

All our stores are happy to hold items for one week. 

Can I pay over the phone?

Unfortunately our stores are not able to accept payment over the phone at any time, nor are they able to dispatch items from store.

Can I return my online order to store?

Can I buy gift vouchers in store?

I need sizing advice

Have you had a look at our brand new sizing chart and universal size converter? It’s on the ‘size guide’ tab on every single product on our website and features measurements and conversions, wherever you are in the world. Check it out here.

Or if you're still not sure and would like some personalised advice, please contact our customer services team. Be sure to include your bust, waist and hip measurements in inches and the item(s) you're interested in. The team will be more than happy to help!

The item I like is out of stock

If the item/size you need is not available on our website, then this does unfortunately mean it's out of stock - we do not have any stock in our warehouse that is not available online.

The good news is that we often restock items once or more after they have initially sold out. Make sure you keep in the loop by heading to the item you like, selecting your size & clicking 'Email me when back in stock'. We'll let you know as soon as we have more stock available!

Where are your clothes made?

Ethical Sourcing Policy 

Collectif is a long standing, committed retailer of high quality vintage inspired fashion and as such, we recognize our responsibility to ensure that our production facilities and suppliers operate to the highest possible ethical and safety standards.

We design our clothing in London, UK and produce our collections in the UK, Romania, Armenia and the Far East. We are very proud to own and maintain high quality production facilities in the Far East, which are staffed and managed by Collectif staff. These facilities are safe, fair and maintained in line with national regulations. All employees work reasonable hours, receive fair pay and holidays and have the right to join a union, should they wish. 

As above, we also utilizes production facilities in the UK and Europe and expect these facilities to maintain the same high levels of health and safety and ethics. All of the above are monitored regularly to ensure environments are to the highest possible standard and Collectif never knowingly do business with any suppliers who are not in line with their country's national employment laws and regulations with particular regard to: minimum age of employment, freely chosen employment, health and safety, freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining. No discrimination, no harsh or inhumane treatment, working hours, rates of pay and terms of employment.

Due to the sometimes complex nature of our supply chain and the supply chains of those we work with, it is not always possible to monitor and control the conditions of every individual involved. However, Collectif continue to acknowledge the importance of doing all we can to ensure fair and safe working conditions for all and as we grow, will continue to do all we can to maintain the rights of those who help us bring our products to you.

These issues are important to us and we know they are to you too, so if your question is not answered here, we do encourage you to get in contact and we will do all we can to answer your query.

Will I receive a dispatch notification?

We are now able to issue dispatch notifications for all our customers, both in the UK and abroad!

Our UK customers will receive a notification, as well as delivery updates, from courier service DPD. Our international customers will receive a notification directly form us, which will contain a tracking number for your order.

Full delivery & returns info.

When will my order be delivered?

Ordinarily, all orders should be dispatched within 1-3 working days. UK mainland orders will then be delivered by DPD, using a next working day service.

- Deliveries in Europe can be expected 2-6 working days from dispatch.

- Deliveries for the rest of the world can be expected 5-7 working days from dispatch.

Please note that this is subject to any international shipping delays which are out of our control. During busy periods our dispatch period may increase to a maximum of 14 working days. We will always do our very best to inform our customers of any changes to delivery times.

Full delivery & returns info.

Who will deliver my parcel?

All UK mainland orders are delivered by our courier service, DPD. This service is estimated to be next day delivery from dispatch. International orders are sent via Royal Mail, then passed to your national postal service - your tracking number can be used on both organisation's websites. You can find out about our shipping costs here.

Full delivery & returns info.

Why is my DPD parcel delayed?

Q: Why have I received an email from DPD informing me that my delivery has been delayed due to my parcel not being handed over by Collectif?

A: With the current courier delivery service that we use for mainland UK orders, DPD will send a customer notification of dispatch as soon as a shipping label has been printed, regardless of the time of day at which this was processed (and whether or not the day's DPD collection has already happened). This can of course cause confusion if a parcel is then not dispatched with a DPD courier until the next day's collection, and would be why you then received a notification that your parcel was delayed. You will receive further updates from DPD with a delivery slot when they have received your parcel. 

Can I change my delivery address?

Please note that we take all delivery address information from the details in your online Collectif account, and not from your PayPal account. Please make sure your details are correct in your Collectif account, as well as at the checkout, before placing your order and proceeding through to payment. 

If you have entered an incorrect address, please contact us ASAP, as we aim to post out orders within 24 hours and cannot amend addresses after dispatch.  We cannot be held responsible for any incorrect addresses provided to us - please double check that all your details have been filled out before completing your order.

Full delivery & returns policy.

Can I collect my order from your shops?

Although we are working to bring a 'Click & Collect' option to our customers, it isn't here just yet, but will be available in the very near future!

Unfortunately we cannot currently allow orders to be collected from our Head Office - this is for health & safety reasons.

Full delivery & returns policy.

Can you combine two orders for shipping?

Unfortunately we're not currently able to combine orders to minimise postage costs - please double check you have all your goodies in your basket before checking out. 

Full delivery & returns policy.

Can you deliver to my address?

We deliver all over the world! You can find out more about our delivery costs here.

Please note: we cannot post items to 'Packstations', 'PO Boxes', or 'Parcel lockers'. This is something that our current mail service is unable to offer. Please make sure your delivery address is an existing address where someone will be able to accept your item.

Full delivery & returns info.

My order hasn't arrived - what can I do?

If you have not received your order within 15 working days, please email shop@collectif.co.uk. Please include your order number, so that customer services can find your order status ASAP.

Please Note: Royal Mail does not consider a package lost until 28 days after the dispatch date. We will not be able to claim for a lost packet until after this time. Packages lost by Royal Mail will be refunded or replaced after 28 days from the date we posted your order. We cannot be held responsible for packages lost or damaged by Royal Mail, but we will do all that we can to help you.

Full delivery & returns info.

How long does your returns process take?

We will usually process (issue your refund/credit note & email you) returns within 7 working days of receipt of your parcel. However, during busy periods, please allow up to 14 working days. We will contact you via email as soon as we have opened your return.

Can I return a sale item?

Sale items may be returned for a refund for up to 14 working days from the date you received your order and for online credit for up to 28 days from the date you received your order. Should you wish to return your item, please make sure it complies with our returns policy.

Please note that orders placed during a sale will be refunded/credited to the value of the item at the time of purchase. Ie if you paid £50 for an item which is usually £100, you will be refunded/credited the £50 originally paid.

What do I need to include?

To return an item(s) to us, we request that your package includes a copy of your invoice & a completed copy of our returns form so that we can process your return efficiently. You can find your returns form on the back of your invoice that is included with your order. Don't worry if you've misplaced your form - just get in contact and we'll be happy to send another across to you.

Do you cover return postage?

We're unfortunately not able to cover return postage costs at this time.

Please note: in the unlikely event that you should receive a faulty item, we will be happy to include your return postage with your refund, or issue it separately should you prefer a credit note. Please return you item(s) via an 'Economy Tracked' service. If you choose to include any additional non-faulty items in your parcel, postage for these items will not be refunded. 

How do exchanges work?

We've updated the way we offer exchanges!

If you tick ‘credit note’ on your returns form, we will now automatically issue an amount equal to the value of the returned item (at time of purchase) straight in to your Collectif e-wallet, as soon as we process your return! You can then use this to re-buy the item in a new size, or buy a different item entirely. The value of your credit note will simply be deducted from your basket at the final stage of checkout. 

 

Find out more about our new e-wallet.

How do international returns work?

For the most part, international returns work just the same as any sent from the UK. However, if you're returning a parcel to us from outside the UK, please remember to state on any customs declarations that your parcel contains 'RETURNED GOODS'. If this is not declared, we will unfortunately have to forward any costs for duty through to you. 

Is there anything I can't return?

All items returned to us must be in a re-sellable condition. This means returned items must be unworn, free of stains, odours, and animal hair. Items must not be damaged, and must be returned with the original labels still attached. 

If any items are received in an unsellable condition, they will be posted back to you.

For reasons of health and hygiene, we are unable to accept any lingerie, hosiery or pierced jewellery as returns. Swimwear must be tried over underwear, and any hygeine seals must be intact or your right to return will be affected.

What if I've received an incorrect/faulty item?

We of course do our best to ensure all orders are fulfilled correctly and with top quality items. However, mistakes unfortunately happen - please always let us know so we can resolve the issue!

If we have sent you an incorrect or faulty item, please get in contact before you send your parcel back - this will speed up the return process. Our customer services team will reply to your email ASAP and advise how best to proceed. If you're sending your item/s back to us, please include your returns form and a copy of your return postage receipt in your parcel, so that we can refund the amount to you. We will issue your refund/send out your replacement item as soon as we receive your parcel.

What is your deadline for returns?

Any items eligible for return can be exchanged for a full refund, for up to 14 working days after you've received your parcel.

Any items eligible for return can be exchanged for a credit note, for up to 28 working days after you've received your parcel.

Please note: these conditions refer to your original order. Any orders placed with a credit note gained from a previous return will not be eligible for a refund, unless your return is sent back within the 14 days of receiving your original order.

Where should I send my return?

Please send any items you would like to return to:

Retail Returns, Collectif Head Office, Unit R2B, Warehouse K, 2 Western Gateway, London, E16 1DR

A:  Unfortunately if the prices were correct at time of purchase, then we are unable to refund you for any price reductions made after this time.

Q: I’ve ordered the wrong size/colour/style! What can I do?

A: During the sale period we will unfortunately be unable to amend orders after they have been placed. Please make sure that you check your order thoroughly before you complete it!

If you’re concerned about the item you like selling out, we would advise order your replacement ASAP and return the original order to us. We will not be able to ‘hold’ stock from our website.

Q: I’ve just found something else that I want to buy, but I’ve already placed my order! What can I do?

A: During the sale period, we unfortunately cannot amend orders in any way once they have been placed - this includes adding items to your order and combining orders to save postage. Again, please be sure before you order! Alternatively, you can use this code as many times as you like, so you can always pop through another order to grab that extra item.

Q: How long will my sale order take to arrive?

A: During our busy sale period we do of course have lots of extra hands working extra hard to get all your parcels dispatched ASAP. However, we do advise that our dispatch times will be longer than usual during our sale and that you can expect your orders to be dispatched anywhere between 2 to 10 working days after being placed.

Once your orders have been dispatched, UK mainland customers will receive a notification from DPD and should receive their parcel the next working day. In some cases when a parcel is dispatched after 4.00 pm the parcel will be with you within two working days. International customers will receive a dispatch note directly from us, giving their tracking number so they can keep up to date with their parcel.

Q: Can I buy gift vouchers during this sale period?

A: Unfortunately gift vouchers are not included in the promotion; however you can buy them without the code.

Q: I have an already existing gift voucher/credit note. Can I use this in conjunction with the sale code?

A: The short answer is yes, you can! Our gift vouchers are now issued in the form of e-wallet credit. Therefore to use your gift voucher just shop away as usual, enter to promo code at checkout, click ‘checkout & pay’ and follow instructions on the next page for e-wallet payments.

Q: I am a wholesale customer. Can I use this promotion?

A: This offer applies to retail customers only. Unfortunately the promotion will not work on your order if you are a wholesale customer.

 

Q: Why is the website slow?

A: Imagine all of the other lovely people across the world who are also trying to place their order! Please bear in mind - the more windows you have open, the harder our server will have to work. Please, please, PLEASE use one tab only in your browser, as this will optimise everyone’s experience on the website! Our servers are always under a lot of pressure during sale period so please be patient, especially over the start of a sale where we receive a huge amount of site traffic. We promise we are working to make the website as efficient as possible and we massively appreciate your patience.

Q: Why does the website say I’m being held in a queue?

A: In order to maximise everyone’s shopping experience during this busy time, we have introduced a queuing system to our site. This means that while there may be a little wait to access the site, when your turn comes, you should find everything running smoothly. We appreciate your patience while queuing!

Q: I can't see the item I want to buy- where has it gone?

A: The item you were looking for has run out - all stock is limited! We do not have any stock in our warehouse that is not available online so please trust the website- it’s no longer available.

Q: I had an item in my basket, but now it’s gone – why was it removed?

A: We can assure you that items are not being intentionally removed from your basket. Adding an item to your basket does not reserve the item, so it is likely that your item was the last piece in that size and someone else has unfortunately purchased the item before you reached the checkout. We understand that this is frustrating, but all stock is limited and demand for popular styles and sizes will be high.

Q: Will you be restocking? I really want [enter item here] but it’s not showing as ‘in stock’ on your website!

A: Unfortunately we will not be restocking any items during this sale. If an item is not in stock, it has unfortunately sold out.

Q: I didn’t change my address, will you be able to send my order to my correct address?

A: If you make your purchase using Paypal, the only way your postal address comes through to our system is via PayPal.  Please make sure that, when placing your order, your shipping address is correct on our website and Paypal.  If you are using your card to pay online ensure you double check your address on our website. If the address is not correct at the time of order, we will not be able to make changes to this so please do double check everything.

Q: What happens if my item is out of stock?

A: As we receive so many orders during our sale period, sometimes two orders can be placed simultaneously for the last piece in a size. If an item is out of stock on your order we will automatically issue you with a refund when we get to the processing stage, and send out the rest of your order. We will also email you, to notify you. If your whole order is out of stock, we will email you to inform you and refund you in full.

Q: I emailed you earlier but you haven’t responded to me. Why?

A: Please be patient with emails, we will be responding to them as quickly as possible. We are in the office Monday-Friday 9am-6pm. We answer every single email we receive, so please don’t worry - you will be replied to, but do take into consideration that this can take some time. Please make sure that you are emailing us at shop@collectif.co.uk, as this is the only email which we will receive queries to. Please also note that our auto reply is an automatically generated response designed to help answer any FAQs and is not in place of a full response – we will get back to you personally as soon as we possibly can.

Q: I sent you a message on Facebook about my order. Why haven’t you replied?

A: As with our emails, we receive lots and lots of Facebook messages during the sale and will respond to all of them as soon as we can. Our Facebook is monitored from 9am - 6pm, Monday - Friday. However, please bear in mind that we are only able to answer questions regarding orders via email and that all queries of this kind, should be directed to customer services. You can reach them by emailing shop@collectif.co.uk.

Q: Help! I need sizing advice. What do I do?

A: Have you had a look at our sizing charts and universal size converter?  They feature measurements and conversions, wherever you are in the world. Please note:  Bright & Beautiful and Pinup Girl Clothing have different size charts to Collectif, so please check this before placing your order. The B&B size chart is available via the link below and the PUG size guide can be found in the images of each item. Check out our size charts here:  https://www.collectif.co.uk/size-guides-i9

Q: Why haven't I received my order yet?

A: We have a dedicated team working hard to get your orders out, but during busy sale periods this will take longer than usual. Please expect your orders to be dispatched anywhere between 2 to 10 working days after being placed.

Q: I need my order for a very specific date- can you send it out so I receive it in time?

A: We will send out your orders as soon as possible, but please bear in mind we will be extra, extra busy during this period. For the above reason, we cannot confirm the exact delivery date of your order. We aim to send out all orders within the 2-10 working day window mentioned above. However, please still order with lots of time to spare, as we have no control over how long orders may take to get to you once they have been passed to our courier service, especially in relation to international orders.

Q: Will I receive a dispatch note?

A: When your order is complete you should receive a confirmation email, which will be sent to the address which you used to set up your Collectif account – please make sure this email is correct and in use. After this, you will receive an email notification of dispatch when your order leaves our warehouse. For UK mainland customers, you can expect your order the next working day from this email. For international customers postage times may vary, but you will now receive a dispatch email which will include your tracking number so you can keep up to date with your parcel via the Royal Mail website:  https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item

Q: Why have I received an email from DPD informing me that my delivery has been delayed, due to my parcel not being handed over by Collectif?

A: Our UK mainland delivery service, DPD, will currently send notifications of dispatch as soon as a shipping label has been printed, regardless of the time of day at which this happens. This means that if a label is printed after DPD have collected from us for that day, we will be unable to pass your parcel to them until the following day. This is why you then received a notification that your parcel was delayed. You will receive further updates from DPD with a delivery slot when they have received your parcel (this should be the day after your initial notification).

Q: The item that I bought in the sale doesn’t fit/I don’t like it. Can I return it?

A: Our returns policy applies to all sale items. Should you wish to return your item, please make sure it complies with our returns policy which can be found here: https://www.collectif.co.uk/page-delivery.html

Q: I bought an item(s) using the code and want to exchange it, but now it’s more expensive. What can I do?

A:  You can return items for a refund or credit note. You will be given the amount spent on that item so unfortunately you will not receive the sale offer on any exchanges.  You will be able to use a credit note on sale items and future sales so this will mean you can use that for any future promotions we run.

Q: Why is my return taking so long?

A: As we’ve mentioned, we will be incredibly busy during the sale period and will do our very best to get all orders and returns completed ASAP. Please bear this in mind - as stated on our returns policy, you should allow up to 14 days from receipt at our warehouse for your return to be processed. With a higher volume of orders being sent out, there will be a higher volume of returns.
