IN STOCK GUARANTEE
MissChiChi.com aspires to 100% in-stock availability. If we are out of stock of a particular item (or do not have the quantities you would like), you can still place an order but there may be a delay in dispatch of these items.
When you add an item to your basket it will state at this stage if the item is either in stock or has an estimated dispatch time. Items that are in stock will be sent immediately as per normal, the rest of your order will be dispatched when all the remaining items become available.
There is no additional delivery charge for ordering items that are not currently in stock.
Out of stock item - Dispatch Time
This means that we are waiting for a delivery of stock from our supplier and as soon as we receive new stock we will automatically send the item(s) to you. In the event that we are unable to dispatch the item(s) to you within the initial estimated dispatch time, we will immediately notify you via email of the renewed estimated dispatch time.
In the unfortunate circumstance that the item(s) is discontinued we will notify you as soon as we can and cancel the item(s) from your order. Please note we only charge your account from when the item(s) is dispatched from our warehouse.
All prices on the MissChiChi.com website are quoted in Euros (EUR) and include EU VAT (sales tax) and the transaction will be settled in EUR.

'MissChiChi.com' will appear on your statement.
Your card will be charged the moment your items are dispatched from our warehouse. If, when you place your order and it states the item(s) is out of stock, this item(s) will automatically go onto backorder for you and an estimated dispatch time will be quoted to you in the shopping basket and via your order confirmation email. If this is the case, your order will be split into multiple deliveries and you will only be charged for the items sent with each shipment.
Please note that postage and packaging charges are only applied to your first shipment.

Custom & Import Charges
Please note that shipments which are outside the Ireland, UK or Europe may be subject to import duties and taxes. These are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country and must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.
Sorry but we're unable to accept any method of payment other those listed above. Your card is only charged when your items are shipped from our warehouse.
Please note: It's a legal requirement that we declare the full value of the goods (not including shipping charges) on all packages destined outside the European Union.

REFUNDS/ RETURNS/ REPLACEMENT/FAULTY - INCORRECT ITEM
We do check all items before dispatch.
Please check your goods on delivery. If item(s) arrive damaged please let us know as soon as possible. If you do not inform us within 10 days after delivery, then we have no liability for items said to be damaged/faulty on delivery.
The goods are your responsibility up until they are received at our returns department. We advise you to choose a postal service that insures your goods for your own protection. We also recommend that you use a recorded delivery service so you can track your order at any time in case the item does not reach us at MissChiChi.com.
Make sure you get proof of postage from the post office, so that we can still complete your return if it gets lost on its way back to us. You should keep this proof until you have received your refund or replacement. We will send you an email to let you know when your return has been received.
If you are not completely happy with an item, we will exchange it or give you a refund, provided that it is returned to us in its original, unbroken and unused condition & packaging, with all labels attached.
Once we have received your returned item(s), and we are happy they have been returned in their original condition, we will process your return and issue a full refund for the cost of the item(s) and add the exchanged item(s) to your order if applicable. We will send you an email confirming your return has been processed and any details of the exchanged items if applicable.
We will exchange the goods or refund you if you return your item(s) to us unopened and in the original condition within 14 days of receipt. All goods will be inspected on return. If you would like to send an item back to MissChiChi.com then you can provided that:
1) You send it back within 14 working days of receiving the product and either of the two following options apply:
a) the packet has been unopened and the product unworn
b) the product is faulty
Please note - if your item has been worn we will not accept your return due to hygiene reasons unless the item is faulty.
We do ask that you allow up to ten days for your return to be processed after confirmation of receipt in our warehouse. Therefore, if a replacement item you have requested is in the SALE, or low on stock, you may want to order this separately to avoid disappointment.
All replacement items are sent using standard shipping. If you would like your replacements sent by an express method (for countries where this option is available), please request this with your return. The difference in shipping costs will then be charged to your card.
If you have requested replacements of a higher value, any difference due will be charged to the card used to pay for the original order. If replacement is of a lower value any difference will be returned to you by any available method of payment.
For orders shipped to addresses outside the Ireland and UK we need to receive your return within 21 days. 7 days should be allowed for postage, so please make sure your item is posted within 14 days of receipt. You will need to pay return postage for all orders sent outside the Ireland and UK. Please mark your package clearly as "RETURNED GOODS" to avoid delays at customs. We suggest you use an insured, traceable shipping method and keep your shipping documentation so that you can make a claim with the carrier if it gets lost. We will send you an email to let you know when your return has been received.
You will need to pay return postage. Send your return via an insured, traceable method, marking your package clearly as "Returned Goods" to avoid delays at Customs. Please keep your shipping documentation so that you can make a claim with your carrier if the package gets lost before it reaches us.
We will always make allowances for disruption to postal services and airlines which might affect your return getting back to us.
If you do not have your invoice, please write the order reference number and whether you would prefer a refund or exchange (please detail exactly which product you would like) on a separate sheet of paper and enclose it with the package so that we can trace your order history. This way we will be able to process your return more efficiently for you.
We will send email notifications to keep you updated on the status of your return, from receipt of the returned package in our warehouse to the completion of your replacement order or refund. All email notifications will be sent to the address given on your order at the time it was placed (regardless of any subsequent changes of email address on your account).
Any refund due will be credited back to the card used to pay for the original order.
If you are due a refund and your card has expired, you will need to get in touch with us with your new expiry date before this can be processed. We will send an automated email confirmation once your refund has left us and is on its way back to your card. You may then need to allow up to a further five working days for your bank to process the credit to your account (this delay is unfortunately outside our control. Please refer to your bank's terms and conditions for further information on how long this might take).
Sorry, but we are unable to offer credit notes.
If you have received an item that is damaged or faulty please contact us immediately with your order number and product name and let us know what the actual damage or fault is with the item so we can investigate further.
If the damage is through no fault of your own we will ask you to return your item to our address (details are given upon a valid request via our customer service department) for further investigation and we will arrange for a refund or duplicate to be sent back out to you as soon as possible.
If you have received an incorrect item within your order please contact us with your order number, and the product name, colour and size that you should have received so we can rectify the error for you.
