Delivery and Returns
How long will my item take to dispatch?
We aim to get items dispatched within 2-3 days but occasionally our dispatch time may be a little longer.
If you need your order ASAP send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we may be able to arrange more speedy shipping for an additional fee.
How long will my item take to deliver in the UK?
All items under £50 are sent via standard second-class post which usually takes 2-3 working days.
All items over £50 are sent via tracked 48-hour post.
These times are an estimate and may be affected by issues out of our control such as postal strikes or delays by the postal carrier at busy times of year.
If an item needs to be sent more quickly than this, please contact us at email@example.com when you make the purchase and we may be able to arrange more speedy shipping for an additional fee.
Do you deliver abroad?
Yes we do! Please keep in mind there may be customs duties and tax to pay for ordering items internationally. These are the responsibility of the customer and are not included in the cost of shipping and posting your Ivy & Normanton item, nor in the cost of the item itself.
Items sent to Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Europe and the rest of the world will all vary in their delivery time. The postal carrier may give an estimate of 7 - 14 days but depending on the location, the delivery time can be much longer or shorter.
We are not responsible for any delays that may arise while the goods are in transit. These sometimes happen due to additional pressures on the system presented by Covid, Brexit, strikes etc; because of this, we cannot consider the item lost and eligible for a refund until at least 90 days after the initial order was dispatched and after an effort has been made to locate the item in the postal system.
Can I get a VAT refund on my purchase?
Not yet. We are a small business and are not VAT registered, which means VAT is not added to our products and therefore can't be reclaimed.
Do you accept returns and exchanges?
Yes we do. We hope you will be completely satisfied with your purchase but if you are not then you have up to 21 days to return your item and request a refund or an exchange. Please note we can only offer a single exchange per order.
We are not able to accept returns on any products that are not in their original condition. So we cannot accept anything marked or stained in any way or with labels removed. If an item is returned with marks on it we will do our best to discuss the matter with the customer but reserve the right to refuse a refund.
We do not accept returns or exchanges on sale items or items sold as part of our “Mustard Sale”. We also cannot accept any returns on items that are personalised unless they are demonstrably faulty.
These policies apply to all items sold on our website whether part of the Ivy & Normanton range or another seller.
Are returns free?
Not unless the item is faulty.
The cost of returning goods to Ivy & Normanton is the responsibility of the customer. If the items are being exchanged for another item or size then postage is not refunded. If the items are being returned/ exchanged because they are faulty then the customer pays for the postage and can then request a refund on shipping.
Please note, all goods remain the responsibility of the customer until they reach us so please retain proof of postage. If we do not receive the item then we cannot issue a refund and/or exchange so send via tracked postage and keep the receipt!
