Having sent your order, we shall send you an email confirming the receipt of your order and listing all relevant details (Order confirmation).

Your order details are stored on the Deichmann website. If you require a hard copy, you can print the "Order confirmation". This will appear on your screen once you submitted your order.

Deliveries are carried out by our shipping partners (Mon to Sat) exclusively to delivery addresses within the UK (excluding the Scilly Isles & Channel Islands) and the Isle of Man. Deichmann makes no additional charge for the cost of delivering orders. Deichmann endeavours to dispatch orders on the next working day. All orders are despatched within two working days from the end of the day the order is placed. We are unable to commit to when an order will be delivered due to the number of external factors which can affect this.
Payments can be made by credit/ debit card (Visa, MasterCard,), or PayPal. All prices are stated in GB Pounds, including the statutory VAT of currently 20%. The prices valid at the time of placing the order shall apply. All products supplied remain the property of Deichmann until they have been paid in full.
In the event that the goods received are damaged or defective Deichmann will at our own option replace, repair or refund the amount originally paid for them. This can be done at any of our Deichmann stores (simply use our Location Finder) or by returning the goods via the Royal Mail or Collect Plus.
Deichmann offers customers the facility to exchange goods or obtain a refund, which is in addition to your legal rights. The only conditions are that the goods are in a new and unworn condition, in their original packaging, that the customer provides a proof of purchase and they are returned to us either in store or to the returns address within 28 days of receipt.
Under Distance Selling Regulations, you may cancel your contract with us within 8 days without having to specify any reasons. This can be done either in writing (e.g. email (to email@example.com) or letter) or by returning the goods. The period begins on the later of the date of receipt of these cancellation rights or the date the customer received the goods (in case of recurring deliveries of the same type of goods the date of receiving the first partial delivery). Goods can either be returned at any of our Deichmann stores (simply use our Location Finder) or via Royal Mail or Collect Plus.
Consequences of cancellation
In the event of an effective cancellation, any contributions received by either party must be returned and, where applicable, any benefits received (e.g. interest) are to be surrendered. If you are not able to return all or part of the goods or only in deteriorated condition, you are obliged to reimburse us with the respective value. This shall not apply in the event that the deterioration of the surrendered goods is due to the inspection of the goods as it would have been possible in a shop. However, you may avoid any duty to provide compensation for any deterioration of the goods caused by the intended use, by not using the goods as your own property and refraining from all actions that may affect their value. Obligations to refund payments must be met within 30 days of the customer notifying us of their wish to cancel.
