We will provide a refund attempting to use the same method used to make the payment (or, if the items have not yet been paid for, reflect the return of the items in your account balance) as soon as possible and at the latest within 14 days of receiving your notice of cancellation, provided we have received the items or evidence of you having sent back the items. Another payment method may be used for the refund, provided that you consent to such change; in any case this will not generate any additional charges.
If the item you have received is defective, please notify H&M promptly and return the item in accordance with section 6 (Returns) below. H&M will, for any products deemed defective, provide a full refund. The provisions set forth herein do not limit any applicable statutory rights.
H&M guarantees a full refund or if you prefer, to replace any returned items in accordance with section 5 (Withdrawal of Order), provided that all items are returned in the same condition they were in upon your receipt. This means the items should not have been damaged, soiled, washed, altered or worn (other than to try the item on) and that any labels or tags should be intact.
All our parcels contain a pre-printed return form for you to use if you decide to return any items. You will find more detailed information regarding our return process on the delivery note and in our Returns and Refund Policy.
You may bring the item(s) you wish to return to any H&M store in U.K., provided that you bring your delivery note to the store. If a debit or credit card was used to make payment at hm.com, the store will refund the applicable amount to the same debit or credit card you used for your initial purchase. If you chose another form of payment when you purchased the item(s) at hm.com, a merchandise card will be issued at the store. Returning your item(s) at a store and receiving a merchandise card means that you will still be obligated to pay the applicable invoice or payment slip in parcel. A merchandise card may be redeemed at any of our H&M stores in U.K.. The store will not be able to refund any Charges such as the delivery fee. Defective items may also be returned at any H&M store in U.K.
7. Payment methods
You can pay for your goods in various ways as set out below.
Payment before or at delivery
Credit card or debit card
You can enter your payment details at the time you place your order using a valid credit or debit card (VISA or Mastercard). The applicable amount will immediately be reserved on your card but will not be debited until the goods are dispatched. H&M reserves the right to check the validity of the credit or debit card, its credit status in relation to the order value and whether the address data of the purchaser is correct. We may refuse orders depending on the result of these checks.
Payment after delivery
Payment slip in parcel
A payment slip will be attached to your delivery note, included in your parcel. The payment slip will show the total amount due including VAT and delivery charges. Payment is due within 20 days unless otherwise specified on the payment slip. In case of no or incomplete payment, you will automatically be transferred to payment with monthly invoice. An invoice fee of £1.25 will be added to the amount payable.
Payment with monthly invoice
All items you purchase and receive within one month are included in one invoice, which is sent to you the following month. An invoice fee of £1.25 will be added to the amount payable. Payment is due at the end of the month in which the invoice is issued.
Payment in instalments
Payment in instalments enables you to split up your payments by monthly instalments until the debt is finally settled. H&M will charge an interest on your account balance. The current annual percentage rate of interest is 17.9 % and the applicable monthly rate is 1.38 %. In the middle of each month H&M will send you a statement of account, which shows the minimum instalment amount to be paid in addition to the amount still outstanding. The minimum monthly instalments are based on the statement sum, although you may make higher payments if you wish. You may continue to use your credit indefinitely. If we authorize you to pay by instalments, you are required to sign a consumer credit agreement which is governed by the Consumer Credit Act 1974. The items you have purchased will be shipped only after you have approved the credit agreement. Further information relating to payment by instalments is available in the pre-contract credit information.
H&M reserves the right to review your application for payment slip in parcel, monthly invoice or payment in instalments and to refuse it, limit it, demand an advance payment or suggest an alternative method of payment. We will review your credit history with credit and fraud prevention agencies when you apply for payment slip in parcel, monthly invoice or payment in instalments with us and, for any significant increase in your credit limit and periodically to manage your account. When a credit reference agency receives a search from us they will place a search footprint on your credit file that may be seen by other organizations. We will also share your personal data with credit reference agencies, fraud prevention agencies and other similar bodies in relation to the use of your account. We will initially authorize monthly invoice or payment in instalments for orders of up to £200 or £400, depending on the results of your credit rating check. The charges and rates of interest specified below may be varied from time to time by notice from H&M to you.
Arrears. You fall into arrears if your invoice/instalment account is not paid by the due date and you do not have the option of switching to another payment method. The total amount owed by you to H&M becomes payable immediately, or, in the case of customers paying by instalments, following notice from H&M to that effect. H&M will send you a payment reminder letter requesting payment immediately. If you have still failed to pay the overdue amounts H&M will send you a ”Notice of Default”. We will charge you £7.00 for each payment reminder letter and a further £12.00 for any Notice of Default.
Please note that we are unable to accept gift cards and merchandise cards as forms of payments via hm.com.
Please note that we do not accept cash or cheques. If you wish to pay by cash/cheque please pay at your bank or a Barclays bank using your payment slip. H&M reserves the right to charge £15 for costs arising for any cash/cheques received.
