  • Private sellers do not have to accept returns unless we find that the item, once received by the buyer, is not as it was described in the listing.
  • Before placing an order, it’s best to ask the seller if you have any questions regarding the size, colour or any other details about the item.

Damaged or defective Items

Sometimes items can be defective, get damaged in the post or not match the listing on the site. If anything isn't as you expected it to be, get in touch with the HHH team as soon as possible. We’ll be able to help resolve any queries, complaints or disputes. Call us or email us on [email protected].

Can I relist an item if the seller won't accept a return?

If the item you received isn't quite right but the seller has not accepted a return, you can re-list the item, with a discounted selling fee of 15%.


When will I receive my order?

The dispatch time can vary from seller to seller, but in general items should be shipped within three working days of an order being placed.

After receiving your order confirmation, we'll send shipping updates as soon as the seller provides any updates.

Timings for international shipping are likely to be a little longer than domestic shipping. For items being sent from one country to another, additional taxes, fees or import duties may also need to be paid and may slow down delivery.

What happens after I place my order?

As soon as payment for your order has been processed, an order confirmation will be sent to the email address linked to your account.

Once payment is processed, we let each seller know they have sold their item and should ship their item to you as soon as possible.

If you have purchased items from more than one seller, the items will most likely be sent at different times.

We ask sellers to update the order with the tracking information, so you can keep an eye on the delivery. We'll drop you an email as soon as we have any updates.

Items need to be posted within 72-hours of payment being processed, otherwise the order will be cancelled. Both you and the seller will receive an email if this happens.

If your order includes an item which is "Owned by HHH", this will be shipped to you directly by the HHH team. You'll still get an email from us when the items are on their way to you.

The easiest way to keep track of you order is by logging into your account and going to the 'Orders' section.

Sellers only receive payment once you have confirmed receipt of the item.

What if my package is missing?

Items should be posted within three working days of payment for an order.

We ask sellers to send orders using a tracked delivery service, in case any packages go missing while on their way to you. When the tracking information is available, you will receive an email from us confirming the details. You can also check this by going to My Account > Orders and selecting the order you are waiting to be delivered.

After three days, if you have not received any emails from us and can't see tracking information get in touch with our team who will be able to help. They are available on  email:[email protected]

Why can I only ship to the billing address?

We do all we can to protect HHH customers from fraudulent activity. To make sure we can keep everyone as safe as possible, both the shipping and billing addresses must be the same when you check out.


Item Verification

We offer an Item Verification service for Buyers, where we will confirm the item’s authenticity, based on objective criteria, including our brand knowledge and information available to us.

This service is optional for Buyers. If you buy an Item Verification service, the Seller will send to our warehouse the item to verify it before it’s shipped to you. Will send the item to you if passes verification, otherwise will send the item back to the Seller and the transaction will be cancelled if it fails verification.


Returning for items not as described (NOD) except counterfeit: If you want to return an item because you believe its NOD, the item must be sent back to us to go through another Item Verification process.


Returning NOD counterfeit: if you want to return an item because you believe It’s counterfeit, and you’ve notified us within the Refund Request Period then:

  • If there is no reason to doubt the authenticity of the item, the transaction will be completed and the item price will be released to the Seller, or
  • In all other cases we’ll ask you to send the Item back to our warehouse for another Item Verification. If the item passes, we’ll send it back to you and the transaction will be completed. But if the item fails, the transaction will be cancelled, will return the item to the Seller and provide you a refund.
