Returns & Refunds
What is your Returns Policy?
We want to make sure returns are as easy as possible to do, but if you need more information on our Returns Policy, how to returns or the process then scroll down.
- Returning an unwanted item?
- After that?
- Final Sale
- What happens to my return if I ordered using Klarna?
- Original condition
- Fair use
- Want to exchange an item?
- Returning a faulty or incorrect item?
- Returns have gone online!
We get it, sometimes something just doesn't work for you and you want your money back. As long as an item is still in its original condition, we accept returns for free, subject to the rules below, which includes rules around fair use. None of these rules affect your statutory rights.
If you return an item within 28 days of the item being delivered to you or available for collection, we'll give you a full refund by way of the original payment method. If you return an item within 29 and 45 days of the item being delivered to you or available for collection, we'll give you an ASOS gift voucher for the amount equivalent to the price you paid for the item. To find out more about returning items between 29 and 45 days, click here. We aim to refund you within 14 days of receiving the returned item into our warehouse. If you request a refund for an item during the above time frames but you can't return it to us for some reason, please get in touch - but any refund will be at our discretion.
We don't accept returns for unwanted items after the relevant returns period above. If you try to make a return, we may have to send it back to your default delivery address and ask you to cover the delivery costs.
Items marked Final Sale have been heavily discounted and are not eligible for returns, exchanges or refunds, other than in exceptional circumstances. This does not affect your statutory rights.
If you've placed an order with Pay in 4 Payments with Klarna, you’ll be paying for your order in regular instalments. If you return an item within 28 days of receiving it, we'll give you a full refund.
If you decide to return something within 29 to 45 days of it being received, an ASOS gift voucher will be issued to you instead, and any Klarna instalments will still apply. ASOS has no liability to you for these instalments or any additional charges incurred, so make sure to pay them off in full! To find out more about returns with Klarna click here.
Hygiene and our customers’ safety is super important, so certain items can’t be returned for refunds including:
- Face + Body products if opened, used or protective seal is not intact
- Underwear if the hygiene seal is not intact or any labels have been broken
- Swimwear if the hygiene seal is not intact or any labels have been broken
- Pierced jewellery if the seal has been tampered with or is broken.
- Face coverings if the seal has been tampered with or is broken.
None of this affects your statutory rights.
Of course, it's fine to try an item on like you would in a shop, but please don't actually wear it. If an item is returned to us damaged, worn or in an unsuitable condition, we won't be able to give you a refund and we may have to send it back to you (and ask you to cover the delivery costs). All items are inspected on return.
Returned items are your responsibility until they reach us, so make sure they're packed up properly and can't get damaged on the way!
As the package remains your responsibility until it arrives back with us, ensure that you get proof of postage in case you need to contact us about your return. We're not responsible for any items that are returned to us by mistake (it happens!). If we're able to locate the items (it's not always possible) and you'd like these returned to you, we may ask you to cover the delivery cost.
If we notice an unusual pattern of returns activity that doesn't sit right: e.g. we suspect someone is actually wearing their purchases and then returning them, ordering and returning loads - way, waaay more than even the most loyal ASOS customer would order, or the items returned don't match what you ordered - then we might have to deactivate the account and any associated accounts. If this happens to you and you think we've made a mistake, please get in touch with Customer Care and we'll be happy to discuss it with you.
If your account has been deactivated and you need to make a valid return, contact Customer Care. They'll give you a returns label although you'll be responsible for the cost of returning the goods to us.
Please note, we reserve the right to take legal action against you if the items you return don't match what you ordered.
We don't offer exchanges on orders- if you would like a different size or colour, please return your unwanted item and place a new order.
Did you order from ASOS Marketplace?
If so, please contact the seller directly for return address and instructions.
Haven't you heard? ASOS is going paperless! You'll no longer receive a paper returns slip with your order- instead, you can create your return through your ASOS account. At the moment you'll need to print a returns label if you want to return, but we're working on ways around this so watch this space! Click here for more information on how to return.
