I have only received part of my order, where is the rest?

When you order multiple items in one order, these may be shipped separately so these can get delivered faster to you. Especially, if you have an order mixed with items from our PREMIER Shipping collection and items that are delivered with standard shipping, you will receive the items separately. You are able to identify the PREMIER Shipping items by the product page. 


If you have not received all the items within the expected delivery date that is stated on the track & trace page, please contact us at support@culture28.com within 30 days, so we can look into it.

Do I have to pay duties or taxes?

If this is the case, CULTURE 28 is not responsible for any duties and taxes. The added duties and taxes in the destination country are the responsibility of the buyer. If there is any issue with this feel free to contact us.


Please do not refuse the package when it gets delivered if you would like to be refunded. We do not take responsibility for packages that have been rejected by the recipient. Rejecting the package for any reason, will prohibit you from receiving a refund. 

When will my order be delivered within 3 days?

Your order will only be delivered within 3 days when you purchase item(s) from our PREMIER COLLECTION.

What is EXTRA INSURED SHIPPING?

If you choose this option at checkout, your package is insured against loss/theft. This means that your order does not arrive within 3 days! Your order will only arrive within 3 days if you purchase item(s) from the PREMIER COLLECTION

What happens if I am not at home when my order is delivered?

If you are not at home when your package is delivered, the courier will leave a card or send an email with more information about where your order is, how to pick it up, or how to make a new delivery appointment. Also check your tracking code for more information about this.


If your order will be returned back to sender due to non-collection, we are not responsible for the additional costs. We will arrange a resend of your order and apply a fee for the additional shipping costs. Refunds for non-collection of orders are not possible. 

RETURNS

What is the return policy?

You have the right to open the package and check the contents but the product must be returned unused to us. The product must be unworn and unwashed, with all original tags attached and in the original bag.


If we receive your return within 28 days after your order has been delivered, we will process a full refund through the original payment method.


Customers from Europe are able to arrange their return through this link

Customers outside Europe can send us an email for return instructions. For more info, take a look at our refund policy.

When do I get my refund?

Once we receive your return package, we will send you a confirmation of receipt via email and process your refund immediately. The refund will automatically be processed according to the payment method that you selected during the return process.

I bought a sale item, can I return it?

Only regular priced items may be refunded. Discounted and sale items can be exchanged for a giftcard of the same value.

Can I exchange an item?

All returned items will be refunded once they've been inspected by our warehouse team. If you need a different size or color of an item, then you'll need to place a new order.

What is your return address?

Customers from Europe are able to arrange their return though this link. Non-EU customers can send us an email for return instructions. The return address will follow after taking one of these first steps. 

Important: the address on the package is NOT our return address. We will not receive the package if you send it to that address and therefore we will not be able to refund you. 

Do I really need to add insurance when returning my order?

As the shipping of a return is your responsibility, we always advise to choose for trackable shipping with insurance. Shipping insurance guarantees that your purchase amount will be reimbursed in case your package gets lost. 

Is the address on my package your return address?

No, this is not the return address. We will not receive the package if you send it to that address and therefore we will not be able to refund you. 

I have sent my package to the wrong return address, what now?

This is very unfortunate, perhaps you can check the carrier that you have used to find out where your package is. Unfortunately, there is nothing that we can do to help you in this case. As long as we have not received the items that you would like to return, we are unable to process a refund. 

When can my return be rejected?

It could be that your return will not be accepted if it does not comply with our return policy. We will not accept a return if:

- the item(s) are not returned in their original condition and packaging. All our items are delivered in a see-through zipper bag, this is considered as the original packaging. If your item has a tag, this is also considered as the original packaging. The see-through zipper bag is not suitable to use solely as shipping packaging, as from experience, items are received damaged if only this packaging is used. The zipper bag should be intact.

- the item(s) are returned after the return period of 28 days that is stated above. 

- the item(s) are returned damaged due to wrong package.

We will update you if we do not accept your return. May you want to receive you package back, we will ask you to cover the delivery costs. 

My return has been rejected, what now?

If you have received an email from us with the message that your return has been rejected, you are also offered to receive the items back. We will send you an invoice for the shipping costs. After we have received your payment for these shipping costs, we will ship the rejected items back to you. 

Can I return multiple orders in the same package?

Yes, this is possible. If you are a EU customer and you need to register your return through the portal, you can add a note. Please use this note to inform us which orders you have combined in the same package.


For Non-EU customer you can notify us when you request the return instructions by email.
