Legal Area

Our purpose is to guarantee your full satisfaction. If, for any reason whatsoever, you are not satisfied with your order, you may exercise your right to return purchased products within thirty (30) calendar days of the date on which you received them from the Vendor. Return items must be shipped back to the Vendor within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of the products. The products may be returned by dispatching the package through the shipping agent indicated by the Vendor (UPS), or through another shipping agent. We also invite you to complete the Return Form (in conformity with the standard form pursuant to Art. 49, subsection 4 of the Consumer Code), which is available on the website in the Client Service area, so that we might provide you with a Return Number (The Vendor will send you an email confirming receipt of the withdrawal request made through the Return Form), or after another declaration has been drafted and sent to the Vendor explicitly stating your decision to withdraw from the contract, without prejudice, in this latter case, to it remaining your duty to prove that the return right was exercised in a proper, timely manner.
In some specific cases, duly explained in the Returns Policy, it is possible to exchange purchased items. Please note that the service is not available for Norway.

Terms and Conditions of Return
The right to return products shall be deemed correctly exercised once the following conditions have been fully met:
  • a Return Form sent directly online through the www.ysl.com or through another declaration which explicitly states your decision to withdraw from the contract must be properly completed and sent to the Vendor within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of the products.
  • we invite you to correctly fill in and submit the online Return Form to the Vendor within thirty(30) calendar days of the date of your receipt thereof;
  • the products have not been used, worn, washed, modified or damaged and, in any case, compliant with the requirements detailed in the section on Compliance Checks below;
  • the identification tag is still attached to the products with the disposable seal;
  • the products are returned in their original packaging;
  • the returned items must be shipped back to the Vendor within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of the products.

If you have fulfilled all requirements set forth above, the Vendor will fully refund the price of the returned purchased products. You will only be charged for the return shipping cost, unless YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP has expressly exempted you from such costs at the time of purchase and on the further condition that you use the shipping agent indicated in the Return Form. Should you decide to use the courier indicated by the Vendor in the online Return Form, you will not have to directly take care of the return shipping costs, which are at your expense. In this case, the Vendor will pay the return shipping costs for you and will withhold a flat fee as payment for the return shipping. The fee will correspond to the original cost of shipping for the order. If an alternative courier is used for your return, you will have to pay for the return shipping cost upfront and at your own expense. You will be notified if the returned products cannot be accepted because they do not comply with the terms and conditions indicated above in letters a) and e) of the preceding paragraph. In this case, you may choose to have the products delivered to you at no expense by the Vendor. If you refuse the above delivery, the Vendor reserves the right to retain the products and the amount paid for your purchase of the products.

Compliance Checks
Our products must be returned in a new and unused state, in perfect condition, with all protective materials in place and tags and stickers attached to them (if applicable), including all accessories and documents. We reserve our right not to accept any return if the product shows signs of wear, or has been used or altered from its original condition in any way or, as an alternative, may reduce the amount of any applicable refund or exchange accordingly. For example, we may make a reduction in the following circumstances:

  • the product(s) have been used, worn, damaged or washed;
  • the identification tag with the disposable seal is not attached to the product(s), or has not been returned. Please note that identification tag constitutes an integral part of each product; and/or
  • you have not returned any packaging which is an integral part of a product (such as a dust bag).
You will be informed if we propose to reduce your refund for this reason. In this instance, you may (as an alternative to us providing you with a reduced refund) choose to have the products sent back to you at your own expense. Should you refuse this delivery, YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP reserves the right to retain the products and the amount indicated for the decrease in refund, due to the decrease in value of the returned products.

Refund Times and Procedures
After the Vendor has received the returned products and checked that the products meet all requirements, you will receive an email that the returned products have been accepted, or, if a decrease in value of the returned products has been detected, you will receive an email informing you of the amount deducted for the decrease in refund. Whatever form of payment you used (Credit/Debit Card, PayPal and Cash on Delivery where available), the refund procedure will start within fourteen (14) calendar days of when the Vendor was informed of your decision to exercise your right to return the purchased products and once the Vendor has checked that the return was carried out in compliance with the above conditions.
The time period for refunding the amount you paid for purchasing the returned products depends on the form of payment used:

  • purchase by Credit/Debit Card: refund time will depend on the Credit Card company’s policies. We would like to assure you, however, that the value date for the credit will coincide with the date of the original payment; therefore you will not suffer any interest loss;
  • payment by PayPal (for those countries where available): refunds will be credited to your PayPal account and will be visible immediately. The actual reimbursement to the credit card associated with your PayPal account depends on the company that issued the card;
  • payment made by Cash on Delivery (for those countries where available): you will be refunded the amount you paid for the products returned to the Bank account you indicate in the Return Form; the time needed for refunding depends on the information you provided in your order; normally refunds take place within fourteen (14) calendar days.
