Frequently Asked Questions
Return and refunds
Can I return my order?
If the purchase is not entirely satisfactory, you can terminate the agreement within 14 days of receipt. Use the return form for this. A Beautiful Story guarantees that you will get your money back for all returned items, provided that the items are returned in good condition and with the price tag attached. If you have done more with the item than is necessary to assess whether you want to keep the item (for example, it is not necessary to remove the price tags), we may charge a value reduction and therefore you may not get the full purchase amount back. See also article 7 of the general terms and conditions. You can also inform A Beautiful Story to cancel the purchase (for example via mail or email) in another way within 14 days of receiving the entire order. You can use the model withdrawal form, but this is not mandatory. You should return the unwanted goods to A Beautiful Story within 14 days after you cancelled the purchase. Preferably, include the completed returns form so we can process your return as quickly as possible.
When will I receive my refund
We will refund the entire purchase amount (including any shipping and payment costs) as quickly as possible, but at the latest within 14 days after receipt of the cancellation notice. We may, however, wait with reimbursement until we have received the products, or until you have demonstrated that you have sent them.
How do I get my purchase amount back after return?
Your refund will be credited to the payment method you used when purchasing the returned items.
If you have paid for part of your purchase with an A Beautiful Story gift card, you will receive this part in the form of a gift card.
Can I exchange my order?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. When you return your package to us, we unfortunately do not have the option to send you another item or size immediately. We will refund the purchase amount to you, so that you can easily place a new order with us.
