Here, you can find frequently asked questions and their answers.

Order

How can I review my order history?

We always send you a confirmation email with your order information to your email address. In case you need certain order information, please search for our confirmation email in your personal email account. Additionally, we are currently working on the opportunity to display previous orders in your personal C&A account.

Are my personal data safe in the C&A Online Shop?

In addition, we protect all your transactions with the mandatory card security code. Good to know: Your delivery address will only be used to process the delivery and not for credit checks or marketing purposes.

Is there a minimum order value?

Yes – the minimum order value in our EU Online Shop is 19 Euro.

How do I view all the available sizes and colours?

We provide you with information on current availability by displaying stock levels. However, sometimes a desired size or colour combination is shown as in stock, even though it is already sold out.

Will an out of stock item be available again later?

Due to new stock arriving and returned goods, sold out items can soon become available again. However, it is impossible to provide reliable information.

Will I be kept informed about the status of my order?

Yes – once you have placed your order, you will receive an automated Email message acknowledging receipt. Please note: You will also receive this order acknowledgement Email if one of the items is currently out of stock. We will also notify you by Email, once your merchandise has been transferred to DHL and is en route to you.

How can I place an order?

You can collect your favourite items in your electronic shopping basket by clicking the “add to basket” button in the Online Shop. Good to know: A binding order is only created when you

  • have entered all the data needed to fulfil the contract,
  • accepted our Terms and Conditions and
  • have clicked on the “Buy now” button

Until you click on the “Buy now” button, you can change your order and the data provided at any time. Once you have completed your order, you will receive an automated order acknowledgement Email. This contains your order details and the Terms and Conditions.

Our tip: If you have not already printed your order details and our Terms and Conditions and/or saved them elsewhere, we recommend that you print the confirmation Email and save it – we do not save your details.

The order acknowledgement does not constitute a contract of sale. It only states that your order has been received by us. We reserve the right to refuse your order; we are not obliged to enter into a purchase agreement based on your order.

Despatch of the items ordered is the point at which we accept your order. You will receive a separate Email notification to that effect. We do not accept orders from persons under 18 years of age.

What is authorisation?

If you pay for your order by credit card, the appropriate purchase amount is pre-authorised first. For example, checks are made to determine if the card is valid and if the available credit is sufficient. Please note: The authorisation of the purchase amount merely constitutes a reservation. The amount is only debited once your order has shipped.

Returns, refunds and complaints

If I don’t like an item, can I return it?

Of course! You can return unworn items within 30 days. Please note that you have to cover the costs of returning the items back to us. For technical and administrative reasons, returns of online orders are not possible in C&A stores.

I have returned an item, when will I get my money back?

Once we have received the items in our logistics centre, a refund is initiated immediately. You will first receive a confirmation Email to notify you of the number of items returned and the amount to be refunded.

The money will then be refunded by the same payment method used to make the initial purchase. It may take up to 8 to 10 working days from receipt of our Email for the refund to show up in your account.

Can I also return my online orders or complain about them in a C&A store?

For technical and administrative reasons, complaints, exchanges or returns of online orders are not possible in C&A stores.

Can I also return and/or complain about individual items from my order or reduced items?

If in exceptional cases, an item does not meet our high-quality standards, you can of course submit a complaint within the statutory warranty period (24 months) – this also applies to reduced merchandise. Please send the item including a brief explanation and your bank details to the following address:

C&A Online Shop
Münchner Straße 112
30855 Langenhagen/Germany

You will not incur any costs. Please contact our Customer Service team. They will send you the necessary returns documentation. For technical and administrative reasons, it is not possible to make a complaint about online orders in our C&A stores.

What happens, if the item returned by me has traces of odour?

Please bear in mind that we can only take back goods that are unworn and with the original label attached. Any obvious marks like makeup and lipstick stains or odours will render the item unsaleable. If this is the case, we will return the item to the customer and retain the purchase price as compensation.

How will the amount be refunded in the event of a return?

The refund will be issued via the same payment method used to make the initial purchase.

Damage in transit

What do I do if my parcel is damaged, and one or more items are missing?
