MATCHESFASHION.COM is an online service of MATCHESFASHION.COM (‘MATCHESFASHION.COM’/‘We’/‘our’/‘us’) provided solely for your personal use for the sale of clothing, accessories and other Items (‘Items’).
We have taken great care to ensure that the Items on our website are presented as accurately as possible.

We may from time to time change these Terms at our sole discretion. By using this Website after any such change(s), you agree to comply with, and be bound by, the Terms as changed.
2. Making a purchase
When you order an Item from MATCHESFASHION.COM you are offering to buy it for the price stated, subject to these Terms.
You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of instructions on the Website. You place your order for Items from the Website by clicking on the Purchase Now button at the end of the online order process.
Once you have placed your order, we will send you an email acknowledging the exact details of your order, providing you with a payment reference and the value of your order that will be debited from your credit/debit card. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from MATCHESFASHION.COM.
Unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order in accordance with the Returns policy set out in section 3b below, our acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place when you receive an email from us notifying you that we have dispatched the Items ordered by you.
Our acceptance of your order will be deemed complete and received by you at the time and date of sending of the email, which time and date is specified on the email. The deemed time and date of receipt by you shall apply regardless of whether, for reasons outside our control, you have not received that email.
If you require any information regarding your order(s) please contact Customer Care on 0800 009 4123 (UK Toll Free) or +44 (0)20 7022 0828, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or email email@example.com
We may not accept your order if (i) an item you have ordered is out of stock, (ii) if your card is due to expire within 28 days of your purchase date (iii) we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment or (iv) if we identify a product or pricing error. We reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase by you at any time and at our sole discretion.
If we are unable to fulfil your order following our order acknowledgement, we will contact you by email or telephone advising you of this. See the Returns policy set out in section 3b below.
We will try to keep our Website as up to date as reasonably possible, but cannot guarantee that any particular Item will always be available. If we can't supply any Item we will release the funds being held in your account for the purchase.
3. Price and Delivery
Currency: Your card will be charged in the currency you choose: GBP £, EUR €, USD $, AUD $ or HKD $. Please note, the purchase currencies you can choose from may be restricted by your shipping destination. You may change the shipment country and the currency displayed at any time. Prices for shipment to the UK will be shown in GBP £. Prices for shipment to Australia will be shown in AUD $. Where shipment is outside Europe to the Americas – North and South including Canada and the Caribbean – prices are shown in USD $. Prices for shipments to Hong Kong will be shown in HKD $. Prices for shipment to all other countries will be shown in EUR €.
The price displayed to you at the checkout is the price you pay. This will not vary later whatever currency fluctuations occur. Refunds will also be set at the price you paid not the price in the currency concerned at the date of refund.
VAT: If you are in the UK and choose to have the goods shipped to the UK prices will be shown inclusive of VAT (where applicable) at the current rate. If the country of shipment is outside the UK but within the EU and dependent territories prices will be shown in euros inclusive of VAT. All other countries are shown a price excluding VAT as no VAT will be due on these orders.
DDP: Please note that to assist customers, orders shipped to Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Japan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, mainland United States and Qatar are now shipped on a Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) basis. This means that all relevant import taxes and duties will be included in the product price displayed on the website (where the individual product or total order value is over the relevant country duty threshold). MATCHESFASHION.COM will account to the relevant authorities for all duty payable. You can opt out of paying duty up front by ticking the ‘Pay duty/tax to carrier on delivery’ box on the shopping bag. If you opt out of paying duty up front it will be your responsibility to pay any applicable charges on delivery. Please note, duty is applied as a flat rate percentage of the total item value for all products. If you believe that you have been overcharged for duty please contact Customer Care on 0800 009 4123 (UK Toll Free) or +44 (0)20 7022 0828 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to investigate the position and refund as appropriate any difference. To help clients approximate prices in their local currency, the website has a currency converter feature. Please note this is for display purposes only and prices are calculated using regularly updated exchange rates. Final payment will be made in either GBP £, EUR €, or USD $, AUD $ or HKD $. As such, final credit card and debited amounts may vary based on currency fluctuations and bank commissions. MATCHESFASHION.COM encourages clients to contact their home bank to receive the accurate price conversion and any bank commissions related to the transactions.
Please note, MATCHESFASHION.COM does not collect or use US sales tax at this time. Your purchase may be subject to local use tax unless it is exempt from taxation. It is your responsibility as the customer to report any purchases of tangible personal property that have not been taxed by MATCHESFASHION.COM and pay use tax on those purchases unless exempt under local State law.
If you are shipping an order to Australia or the US on a Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) basis, and you choose to return an item, we will refund your duty and tax. By ordering goods from MATCHESFASHION.COM, you hereby assign the right to reclaim any Customs Duty (Duty Drawback) directly from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to MATCHESFASHION.COM, and agree not to claim Duty Drawback yourself.
MATCHESFASHION.COM is an approved CREDITS participant with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). By ordering goods from MATCHESFASHION.COM, you hereby authorise DHL Canada, an approved customs broker in CREDITS, to act as your agent, and to transact business with the CBSA to obtain release of your merchandise, account for duties and taxes, return merchandise to MATCHESFASHION.COM, and electronically submit refund claims on your behalf. Under the CREDITS programme, the CBSA will send any refund of duties and taxes that were paid on the returned merchandise to the customs broker, and you will obtain the refund directly from MATCHESFASHION.COM. Further, you also authorise the customs broker to forward any refund issued by the CBSA in your name, so that MATCHESFASHION.COM can be reimbursed.
Delivery to countries other than Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Japan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, mainland United States and Qatar that are outside the EU may be subject to local import taxes, which are your responsibility (where applicable). If so, the shipping company will contact you by telephone once your Items are in customs to let you know the cost. Be aware that this may delay your delivery time as goods held at customs will be your responsibility to pay the necessary charges for local authorities to release the goods.
We deliver to over 170 countries, if we do not deliver to your country you will be prevented from selecting that country at the point of ordering.
We aim to deliver your chosen items to the place and person of your choice, in perfect condition and in the shortest possible time. Our delivery charges are dependent on your shipping destination. Please refer to our delivery section to view timing and costs. Estimated delivery times are to be used as a guide only. MATCHESFASHION.COM cannot take responsibility for delays owing to customs clearance or payment issues. All purchases are insured by us while in transit until it is delivered to you. If you wish to track your parcel, please refer to the email you were sent containing your tracking number or alternatively email us at email@example.com and we will track your shipment for you.
Please order from MATCHESFASHION.COM with enough lead-time to prevent any loss or disappointment resulting from the delivery time as MATCHESFASHION.COM cannot be responsible for this.
If your order will not be delivered within the timeframe specified at ordering we will notify you and try to rectify the situation as quickly as is practically possible.
All new orders are deemed separate and each is treated individually.
As MATCHESFASHION.COM online purchases may be delivered to addresses other than the billing address given by the card holder, for example as with the case of a gift being purchased and addressed to a friend, as a security precaution, an email and a copy of the invoice will be sent to the cardholder’s registered email address and home address, and we will require a signature upon delivery for all goods shipped.
Please visit our Delivery Section for full details regarding deliveries.
3b. Returns and Cancellation
Customer satisfaction is always our top priority, and as such we handle each query on an individual basis to the best of our ability. While we hope that you are delighted with your order, if you are not perfectly satisfied with your goods we will happily offer you a full refund.

Footwear should be returned unmarked and in its original and undamaged packaging as this is considered part of the product. Briefs, swimming costumes and bikini bottoms should be tried on over underwear. Returns may not be accepted if the strip has been removed or if the items are soiled, and may be sent back to the customer.

3c. Discount Codes
You may occasionally receive discount codes from us, via email or through promotional materials.
Free shipping offers apply to the entry-level delivery option. Free shipping offers on new-season orders are valid only on full-price items. In all cases, only the delivery is free. Any taxes, duties or customs fees are chargeable. The promotional code FREESHIP is valid on all orders over £200/€250/USD $300/AUD $300/HKD $2,500. The promotional code USAFREE is only applicable on orders shipped to the United States. The promotional code FREEAUS is only applicable on orders shipped to Australia. Codes cannot be used in conjunction with any offer at MATCHESFASHION.COM.
Each code is unique to the recipient, is not transferable, has no monetary value and under no circumstances can it be converted into currency. Each code has an expiry date, which will be stated at the time of promotion or on accompanying promotional materials which cannot be modified. Some discount codes may be redeemed both in store and online, or when specified, for online purchases only. Again, this will be stipulated at the time of promotion and on accompanying promotional materials.
When an order is placed using a promotional code and contains a number of items, the value of the discount is spread over each item according to the pro-rated value of that item. Any refund of an item purchased in such an order will be reduced by the value of discount attached to it. The ‘discount’ will not be refunded.
Under no circumstances can the value of a discount code be deducted from an order if that code is defective or out of date: no replacement codes will be issued.
Only one discount voucher can be used per order.
4. Credit Cards
MATCHESFASHION.COM allows orders to be processed online, or over the phone, using a valid credit or debit card.
Your credit card company may undertake an additional security check to confirm it is you making the order. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses, or subsequently refuses to, or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We regret to inform you that anyone who is a MATCHESFASHION.COM/MaxMara account card holder will not be able to use their cards to purchase online until further notice, however it is a service we hope to offer in the near future.
5. Passing of property and risk
We will retain the legal ownership of the Items until full payment has been made by you and such payment has been received by us. Legal ownership of the Items will immediately revert to us if we refund any such payment to you. Risk in the Items will pass to you on delivery to you.
MATCHESFASHION.COM wants to ensure your complete satisfaction with the Items. For online purchases, we will accept Items not worn, used or damaged for a full refund as set out above.
