Tips

Some websites may charge additional fees for delivery, while others include delivery in the normal price of the product.

Many times, it is also worth it to wait for sales, where you can guarantee yourself some of the best offers. If you know a special sale is close by, it is usually worth it to put a hold on your purchase until then to save yourself some money.

Depending on the website, the delivery time may also vary slightly. Normally delivery will occur in 3-4 days; however this is not fixed for all websites and is why we advise  you to pay attention to the delivery time. This will be told to you before your purchase.

When in doubt of some of the products, or even the firm, we advise you to read some reviews. These can be very helpful in concern to reliability or even quality of the company and its products; it will provide you with a consumer’s opinions and experiences too.

Sales

On each website, they will have unique offers which may differ daily. These usually offer great reductions in prices, with up to a 50% off sale.

Besides the daily deals, there are special events in different seasons, with huge sales on most products. Such events are usually between the different seasons or during the holidays. Such events include the Christmas Sales, Summer Sale or Black Friday. If you know that one of these events is close by, it’s usually worth it to wait for your purchase until then and save yourself some money!

Refund process

According to German law (§355 BGB), you can revoke yourself from a contract you made online, in the first 14 days after the contract was legally established. The revocation must occur as a written text, or with the reshipment of the good bought. There is no need for an official explanation, it is however important to keep to the 14 day deadline, which starts as soon as the bill is received.

Different providers may stretch this deadline on a voluntary basis, so it may be possible to refund clothes even after two weeks. However, all providers must at least offer 2 weeks in which the buyer may back out from the contract in order to get a refund on a return.
