Shipping Policy

Introduction

Welcome to Exodus Beauty's Shipping Policy for online orders.

Our Shipping Policy forms part of and must be read in conjunction with, our Terms and Conditions of Sale. We reserve the right to amend/change this Shipping Policy at any time. 

General

Orders are subject to stock availability. We try to maintain accurate stock counts on our website but from time to time there may be a stock discrepancy and we will not be able to fulfil all your items at the time of purchase. In this instance, we will fulfil the available products to you, and contact you about whether you would prefer to await restocking of the back-ordered item or if you would prefer for us to process a refund.

The transit time depends on the speed of the shipping service. As per the below rates, the transit time for UK standard shipping may take 7 business days (or more). For speedy delivery and up-to-date information on your parcel as it makes its way to you, we recommend opting for tracked shipping services.

If you refuse to pay duties on arrival at your destination country, or the goods are not claimed, the goods will be returned to us. Please email us to let us know of this development and request a refund stating your order number. If we have received the goods back from our shipping partners, you will receive a refund for the value of goods paid, minus the cost of the return shipping. If we have not yet received the goods back, you will be informed, and a refund will be processed within 3 to 5 business days of us receiving them. The initial cost of shipping is non-refundable.

 

Out Of Stock Items:

If an item is out of stock, we will contact you with the options of having a refund, ordering an alternative product, or proceeding with the remaining order. We will process your order once we have your instructions on these.

If any products are out of stock and this reduces your order to below our free shipping minimum order, we will contact you to check if you want to:

  • Order other products up to the value of the free shipping minimum order.
  • Pay the cost of delivery; or
  • Cancel your order and receive a refund.

 

Damaged Deliveries:

We try our best to ensure that your parcel arrives in great condition. Unfortunately, there are times when parcels are damaged while in transit. If a parcel shows clear signs of damage at the time of delivery, we ask that you refuse the parcel. Please ask the courier to return the goods to sender. Any damage discovered after delivery has been made, please contact us directly via phone or by emailing us at customerservice@exodus-beauty.com with photos of the damage.

Click And Collect:

When you come to pick up your order, you need to bring your order number as well as proof of ID (e.g. the payment card you used to pay for the order).

Tracking Deliveries and Delivery Confirmation:

With standard delivery, you will receive a delivery confirmation when the parcel is delivered. If you have chosen tracked delivery, you will be able to track the whereabouts of your parcel using a link provided by the delivery company.

Transit Time - UK (Excluding Channel Islands)

Please note that the delivery estimates are calculated from when the item is shipped, not when an order is placed. The delivery estimates above are only a guide, if there is a problem within the delivery network that is out of our control it could take a little longer, but please contact us and we will be available to assist.

 

Shipping & Warehouse Operating Hours & COVID-19 Update:

Our order fulfilment process is manual as they are processed by staff responsible for picking and packing each order. We do our best to ensure that orders placed before 3 pm are processed and shipped within 24 to 48 hours, except standard shipping orders, which are processed and shipped within a week.

Please note that due to disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our courier partners now operate with limited operating hours and with less staff, which may cause shipping delays. We will however do our best to minimize these delays by getting shipments to them in a timely, and keep you informed of any disruptions.

Our warehouse operates on Monday - Friday during standard business hours*, except on national/bank holidays at which time the warehouse will be closed. In these instances, we take steps to ensure shipment delays will be kept to a minimum.

*Standard business hours are between 9 am to 5 pm Monday-Friday (when orders are processed and shipped) and 10 am to 12 pm on Saturdays (phone call and email inquiries only). Sundays and Bank Holidays are not working days and we are closed on those days.

Please note that our shipping and warehouse operating hours are subject to change during busy periods (including Christmas and New Year Holidays) and depend on events outside our control. Relevant updates will be sent to customers as the need arises.

 

Change of Delivery Address or Order Cancellation

For a change of delivery address requests, we can change the address at any time before the order has been dispatched. If you change your mind regarding your order, we can accept cancellations at any time before the order has been dispatched. If an order has already been dispatched, please refer to our Returns & Exchange Policy. 

Items Out of Stock

If an item is out of stock, we will contact you to let you know your options before we process or cancel and refund (where applicable) the out-of-stock items and dispatch the rest of the order.

Delivery Time Exceeded

If the delivery time has exceeded the estimated time, please contact us at customerservice@exodus-beauty.com so that we can contact the Shipping Carrier to investigate. In certain circumstances and solely based on our discretion we may issue a partial or complete refund of shipping costs to compensate for the delay.

Parcels Damaged in Transit

If you find a parcel is damaged in transit, if possible, please reject the parcel from the courier and get in touch with our customer service. If the parcel has been delivered without you being present, please email customer service (attaching photos) immediately at customerservice@exodus-beauty.com. A refund or a replacement (Domestic Orders only) will be provided.

Parcels Lost in Transit

We will process a refund or provide a replacement (where applicable) as soon as the courier has investigated and deemed the parcel lost. This excludes international orders. Shipping Costs for International Orders are non-refundable.

Refunds - Shipping Costs

While we always aim to dispatch your item in time to arrive within your chosen delivery time frame, no shipping time frames are guaranteed. Where shipping delays are introduced due to external factors out of our control such as industrial action, delays in the courier/postal delivery network and your product arrives late, a partial refund maybe provided. This is solely based on our assessment on a case-by-case basis.
