SUBMITTING AN ORDER

Do I have to create an account to place an order?

You can place an order without creating an account, but it is strongly recommended that you create one, so that you can keep a better track of your orders.

What size should I order?

On each product page you will find our size guide where measurements are provided in centimeters and inches. Our shoes follow the European/Italian sizing. We welcome you to contact our Customer Care team for specific sizing advice as well.

Can I change the size and/or colour of one or all the items of an order I have already completed?

Currently BY FAR is unable to offer exchanges. In case you would like to receive a different item from the one you ordered, please contact our Customer Care team to ask for assistance with cancellation.

I didn’t receive an order confirmation email

Please check if you used your correct email address when submitting the order. If so, your email might have ended up in your Junk folder. In case you are still unable to find your order confirmation email, you can contact our Customer Care team - we will check the status of your order and/or resend you the order confirmation.

Do you offer gift wrapping options?

We currently do not offer gift packaging, but we are working towards this direction.

SHIPPING INFORMATION

When will my order be shipped?

Our warehouses operate Monday to Friday. Your order will be shipped out in 1-2 business days. We do aim to ship every order within 24 hours during business days. If you submit your order by 11:00 CET time, your parcel will be dispatched on the same day. All orders submitted after this hour will be shipped out on the next business day.

How do I know my order is successfully submitted?

Once your order has been approved, you will receive an email confirmation with your shipping details and tracking number. If you haven’t received the order confirmation email, please also check your Junk folder. Please note that it can take up to 24 hours before the courier updates the shipping information after you have received the shipping confirmation email from us.

Can I change the shipping address of an order I have already placed?

Delivery details can be updated only if the order hasn’t been processed by our warehouses’ systems – if you would like to check the status of your order, please contact our Customer Care team. Once an order has been processed, we won't be able to change the shipping address. If your parcel is in motion according to the tracking information, please use the link here to update your address, delivery date or any other delivery instructions. The Customer Care team is not able to update delivery details, as the change would require confirmation via the Recipient’s mobile phone. Please note that delivery country cannot be changed - in such cases your order must be cancelled.

How can I check the status of my shipment?

As soon as your order is shipped you will receive a confirmation email with the tracking number. In case you haven’t received this email, please also check your email Junk folder. By clicking on the tracking number, you will be able to check the status of the shipment directly on the courier’s website.

What should I do in cases when my parcel is missing, or there are items missing from my order, or item is delivered damaged, or delivery is made to a wrong address?

In any of those cases please contact our Customer Care team for assistance. In case of damaged or missing items in the received parcel, please make sure to take photos as an evidence of the issue. We will also need a photo of the packaging  so that we can start an investigation with DHL. When contacting us, you will have to provide the photos as well as any relevant order information.

Any of the above issues must be communicated to our Customer Care team within a maximum of 5 days from the delivery date shown on the courier’s website, otherwise it will not be accepted.

Can you put my order on hold and ship it at a later stage?

Orders are shipped out within 24 hours of being submitted and we cannot postpone the dispatch.
 

RETURNS & EXCHANGES

How can I return my order?

If your purchase is not exactly what you are looking for, you have 14 days from receiving your order to arrange your return. To do so, head to our Returns Portal or visit our customer care help desk for additional information. Please insert your order ID, starting with „GE“ and followed by numbers and the email address used for the submission of your order.

Please note that all items must be returned unused, with authentic labels and in original packaging. For perfumes, please note that due to carrier’s limitations the product cannot be shipped back and therefore all perfume sales are final.

All returns are thoroughly examined upon receipt. We will only issue a refund in case the product and its packaging are in a new-like and re-sellable condition. For perfumes, please note that due to carrier’s limitations the product cannot be shipped back and therefore all perfume sales are final.

When returning items to us, please ensure they are in a new, unworn, unused, undamaged condition, well packaged in their original packaging (carton box, shoe box, dust bags etc.) and protected. Please, place the shoe box inside another box to prevent damage during shipping. When trying on shoes, please be mindful not to scratch the soles or mark the shoe box. Please try on your shoes on a carpet or similar platform, as their soles are very delicate and can be scratched easily.

We reserve the right to inspect your return and to reject any returns if not in proper condition as defined above.  We cannot guarantee full refund in case of damaged returns.

Note that purchases made through our website can only be returned in accordance with our return policy. At our LA store we do not accept returns of online purchases.

If you made your purchase through a partnered retail location, then any return will need to be made in accordance with the return/cancellation policy of the relevant retailer and should not be returned directly to us.
