Are the prices fixed throughout a sale?
Yes, prices remain fixed from start to finish during all our sales events. We aim to ensure all our members have the same opportunities throughout an event, although stock is limited - so members cannot hold items in their shopping cart. It really is first come, most stylish!

If I add a product to my shopping bag, does Brands Exclusive reserve the product for me?
Your item will be reserved for 20 minutes, however when you add something new to your shopping bag you are awarded another 20 minutes. When your bag expires, all your items will be saved in My Favourites, however at this point they’re available for other members to purchase. We’d love to keep the pieces on hold for you forever, however what makes our offers so exclusive is how limited they are!

For most sales events there is no limit on the number of items you can purchase. However, for special sales, or sales where we've secured a limited number of products and want to make them available to as many members as possible, we may place a limit on the number of items you can buy.
How do I cancel an order?
If a sale is still live on Brands Exclusive, you can cancel your order via the My Orders section of your account, or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once a sale has ended, it is no longer possible to cancel your order as the goods will have been ordered and paid for. If next day despatch was offered for your items, these will already be in processing and will not be available to cancel.
Can I combine orders from two concurrent events into one shopping basket?
You can order products across all sales by dropping them into one basket, however each sale’s products will arrive in a separate parcel and for each additional parcel there will be an extra shipping fee (we’ve tried to keep this as low as possible).

If your order arrives and you decide it isn't just right, most items can be returned to us within 30 days of receipt.
Please go to the My Orders section of your account and select "Return an Item" to lodge a return request, within 30 days of receipt of your order.
Once the return request has been approved, the support team will provide you with a label to affix to your package, and documentation to include within it.

What payment options do you offer?
We accept credit card payments from Visa, MasterCard, American Express, as well as payments through PayPal and Visa Checkout.
How safe are my payments on brandsExclusive?
During payment, all your personal information is encrypted by a 128/256bit SSL connection. This means that the information cannot under any circumstances be intercepted by an unauthorised person.
We do not store any bank or credit card information after payment. Any cards saved at checkout are stored by our payment gateway provider, eWay.
How safe are my personal details?
We have no access to your bank data and do not store any bank or credit card information. This is why you'll need to enter your payment details for each order you place with us.
Why was my credit card payment not accepted?
In our experience, the most common reason for a credit card payment to be declined is that the 3 or 4 digit security number (CCV security code) on your card was entered incorrectly. On most cards, the CCV is printed on the back of the card, usually after the card number. If a credit card number is provided with an incorrect CCV, the transaction will not be approved.
Please also ensure that you have sufficient credit available on your credit card to complete the transaction.
How long will it take to receive my order?
We have a no-inventory business model, which allows us to provide items at such great prices. Our suppliers only send your order to us after the sales event is complete. Depending on their shipping and handling times, it may take 2-4 weeks (from the end of the sales event) to receive your purchase. We can usually get your goods to you in two weeks, however if the items are coming from overseas it might take a little longer so please refer to the shipping details on the product for accurate information.
How are my products sent and how much does it cost?
Our orders are delivered via the most efficient carrier for your region.
If no one is home at the time of attempted delivery, you will receive a notification card in your letter box with contact details to arrange collection.
If you purchase across more than one sales event, you will be placing an order from each sales event within the one purchase. In order to ensure you receive your items as soon as possible, delivery will be split by order and you will receive multiple deliveries.
Our delivery fee will vary according to your region, and the number of sales events you purchase from. As a guide, your first order will incur a fee of $9.99 (inc. GST) for most metro areas and $10.99 (inc. GST) for most regional areas, with discounts for additional orders within the same purchase. Some exceptions may apply for large, bulky and or heavy items. At the checkout, your delivery charges and total order amount are calculated in the 'payment' section.
