When you place an Order through our Platform or the Platform Call Centre, you are deemed to have consented to the latest version of the Platform Terms then posted on our Platform.

ORDERS

When you place an Order with us, then subject to your rights to cancel or return the items, you commit to buy the items described in that Order, at the price indicated including any delivery fees, cash handling fees, taxes and duties where applicable.


Orders are subject to our acceptance, which we may withhold in our sole discretion including for reasons such as ineligibility, inability to confirm payment authorization, suspected fraud, shipping restrictions and stock availability. Items in your Platform basket are not reserved until your Order is paid for. Where you first elect to pay for your Order via cash on delivery, we will send you a one-off SMS asking you to validate your election and confirm your account information prior to dispatch. Please click on the link contained in the SMS to complete this verification step. If you do not complete this step within 3 calendar days of the day on which we sent you the SMS, we will cancel your Order.

The Platform (or our Platform Call Centre) may contain or provide information regarding the availability of merchandise. This information can be used to estimate the likelihood that an item will be available immediately upon Order placement.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that an item stated to be available will actually be available right away, as inventory can change significantly throughout the day. In rare cases, a product may be available when you place an Order but sold out by the time we process the Order. Should this happen, we will notify you. Receipt of your Order will be acknowledged by email. However the Order is only confirmed when you receive a notification from us confirming dispatch of the relevant item(s). No party other than us has the authority to confirm acceptance of the Order. The Order once confirmed is deemed concluded in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

COMPLIMENTARY GIFTS

We hope you enjoy the free gift which we may offer from time to time with purchases made on Allurist. Please be aware that items purchased on the site, will be non-returnable if the free gift has been opened or if the packaging has been tampered with.

PAYMENT

We currently accept the following tender types for Orders placed on our Platform/through our Platform Call Centre: VISA, MASTERCARD, Paypal. Cash on delivery is permitted for Orders of up to AED 50,000. Cash on delivery is currently the only payment option available for Orders placed via our Website. An additional handling fee of AED 25 is payable for all cash payments to cover the cost to us of providing this service. This will be payable on delivery of your Order and will be added to your Order total.

PRICES

Prices on the Platform are displayed in AED, SAR, KWD, BHD, OMR, QAR, USD and exclude any services you may elect to pair the purchase with, delivery costs, cash handling fees, taxes or duties to which the purchase may be subject. Any such additional costs will be displayed before your final check out. Where you purchase using a payment card denominated in a different currency to AED, the payment will be subject to the currency exchange rate applied by your card issuer at the time your payment is completed. The destination you ask us to deliver to, the items & services you select and the method of delivery you choose will dictate what delivery charges, taxes and duties apply (if any). Please refer to our Delivery section for further details on delivery options.

Although we make every effort to ensure prices displayed on our Platform and in our communications are correct, errors may occur. If an error occurs and your Order:

  • has already been processed, then we may at our discretion:
  • cancel the Order (or part thereof), arrange for collection of the mis-priced item(s) from your original Order delivery address in the UAE and issue you a full refund including original Order delivery fees, taxes, cash handling fees and duties (if applicable);
  • where the price you paid is lower than the actual price of the item, honour the price in your Order; or
  • where the price you paid is higher than the actual price of the item, refund you the difference;
  • has not yet been processed, then we will notify you as soon as possible and only process the Order (or part thereof) once you have confirmed you are happy to buy at the correct price or otherwise cancel the Order (or part thereof) and refund your payment in full.

General conditions applicable to Returns In order to qualify for a refund, all items (including promotional gift items accompanying the Order) must be returned to us within 30 days of Order receipt, unaltered, unused and in full saleable condition (or the condition in which they were received from us or our agents) accompanied by their original Order confirmation.

  • Authenticity cards, where provided, should also be returned.
  • Swimwear must have the original hygiene liner attached.

Please take care to preserve the condition of any product packaging as, for example, damaged shoe boxes may prevent re-sale and may mean that we cannot give you a full refund. Our agents may ask to inspect returned items at the point of collection but that initial inspection does not constitute a guarantee of your eligibility for a full refund.

We reserve the right to monitor returns and to refuse Orders from customers with excessive returns levels. However nothing in this Returns section is intended to affect any consumer rights that you may have under UAE law.

EXCHANGES

We are not currently able to offer Exchanges. Instead, all items should follow the returns process, and a new Order placed for the replacement items.
