Terms & Conditions
Abi-K aims to provide a seamless online shopping experience to all our customers. These terms and conditions form the basis on which you can visit us and our website. We’ve listed the terms we feel would be most important to you first, followed by detailed distance selling terms according to Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (DSRs) and the Electronic Commerce Regulations 2002. Please read them carefully as they contain important information. If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact us at email@example.com or +44 (0) 7711 782678.
Returns and exchanges
We hope you will be thrilled with your Abi-K purchase, but if you are not totally satisfied, for any reason, your item can be refunded in full or exchanged according to the following criteria:
For your peace of mind, a full refund will be honoured within 7 days from the date of payment. You must notify us immediately by email if you would like this to happen at firstname.lastname@example.org. The item must be in its original unworn state and free from damage. The item must be returned with all its original packaging, tags and receipt. We understand and accept damage to the packaging (within reason) may be evident to allow you to open the product and inspect it before changing your mind. Return postage must be covered by the customer, and sent by Royal Mail’s Special Delivery service to ensure the item is insured. For European and International countries a reputable trackable service must be used. Failure to do so (should the item be lost in the post) will result in a non-refund. Proof of a trackable return postage service must be provided.
Exchanges are available up to 28 days after the receipt date. Full price items can be exchanged for other item(s) for the full value of the original sale receipt. Or, a credit note can be issued. Credit notes are valid for ONE YEAR from the date of the original receipt. The original item must be in its original unworn state and free from damage. The item must be returned with all its original packaging, tags and receipt. Postage for returning your item, and sending out the new item must be covered by the customer, and proof of trackable return postage is required.
Every care and attention has been made to ensure your product is individually handmade to perfection. In the unlikely event that your product is faulty upon receiving it, please notify us as soon as possible by email email@example.com detailing the issue. Should the item be a fault of Abi-K, we will endeavour to rectify any faulty items at no postage cost to yourself.
Appropriate Care of Products:
Products are designed for occasional use and are not recommended for daily use. Materials used are delicate, including silks, leather and fine sterling silver chain. Please read the product description 'I am unique' and ‘take care of me’ found in the 'info/care' tab of each product page. If care instructions are adhered to, your beautiful Abi-K piece will last for years to come. If damage to the products appears in our opinion to have been caused by not adhering to these terms, a refund or exchange cannot be granted.
Delivery: (see also points 9 & 10 below)
Abi-K has a legal obligation to deliver orders within 30 days of receiving payment. However for items in stock we endeavour to process and dispatch within two working days from receiving payment. Please allow three working days for dispatch to avoid disappointment. Special orders and bespoke items will have their own unique delivery times depending on the individual item. Abi-K will stipulate and agree by email with you in this instance. If you require an item urgently please do call us straight away as we will do our utmost to meet your deadline.
