What is your returns policy for items paid for by finance?

We can accept payment from one debit/credit only when purchasing online, although you can pay via Loupe gift card and debit/credit card if the purchase total exceeds your gift card balance.

Providing the item is in unworn, brand new condition, you have all the packaging, proof of purchase and your order is not special or personalised, we will happily assist with a return.

Please note we can offer refunds only for finance purchases.

Can I exchange finance purchase/s?

Your finance agreement is a product-specific and price-specific contract. Due to this, we are unable to offer exchanges for items purchased using interest-free credit.

If you have multiple items on your agreement and return only some of the orders, you will need to complete a new finance agreement for the item/s you are keeping and pay a new deposit before we can cancel and refund your original agreement.

What is the finance returns process?

If your purchase was made online, your order needs to be returned to our website returns team. Returns are free and made simple with our prepaid returns label, returns invoice and resealable boxes.

Please note we cannot refund your online finance purchases in our boutiques.

For interest-free credit purchases made in our boutiques, please pop back in and the team will be happy to assist subject to our returns policy.

What should I do if I have a faulty item and it’s on finance?

In the rare event you suspect your item is faulty and it has been purchased online using finance, please send it back to us using your Freepost returns label and advise us of the fault when you complete the returns form.

We cannot comment on the cause prior to seeing the item, please allow for our team to assess it and they will happily advise further.

For boutique finance purchases, please see a Loupe consultant in a boutique and they will be happy to advise further.

How long will my refund take on a finance purchase?

Please allow 3-5 working days upon receipt of your piece for your return to be processed. If you requested a refund, it will be applied to the original card used to place your order. As soon as your return has been processed, you will receive an email to let you know.
