3. Price and Delivery

We charge customers either in pounds sterling, euros or dollars depending on the country of shipment as set out below.
Prices are displayed to you when you enter the site in the currency we used for the country indicated by your computer's IP address.
You may change the shipment country at any time and this will change the prices to the currency we use for that shipment country.
PPrices for shipment to the UK will be shown in pounds sterling.
When you choose shipment to a different country then within Europe (and certain dependent territories) this will normally be a price shown in Euros including in countries such as Russia.
Where shipment is outside Europe to the Americas, North and South including Canada and the Caribbean prices are shown in US dollars. .
Prices for all other non Europe/ USA shipments will be shown in pounds sterling.
We convert from pounds to dollars and euros using daily currency conversion rates from XE.com. However 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 both the Mainland US and Australia 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
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 +44 (0)870 067 8838 or 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 web site 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 (£), Euro (€) Or USD ($), 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.
Delivery to countries other than the US and Australia 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.
