Return and Exchange FAQs

 

What is the Havaianas Return and Exchange Policy?

We allow a one-time exchange for changes in size. Here are just a few things we need to check when you decide to have your pairs exchanged: 

  • Return and refund requests due to change of mind will not be allowed.
  • You may return any item purchased from www.havaianas.ph within 15 days from the date of order delivery.
  • We can accommodate requests for changes in size for the same style and color only. 
    • If the size requested is no longer available, you may choose another color or style of the same value.
    • If the exchange item is of higher value, additional payment will be required and is computed upon completion of the return request process.
  • The item/s to be returned should be in good condition, never used, and in its original packaging, along with all accessories and tags attached.
  • We cannot guarantee that the item for exchange will be at the same price as when it was bought. For any increase in price, the customer will be required to pay for any price difference or be requested to file for refund.
  • Refunds or exchanges for items bought from the Havaianas Philippines Official Website, www.havaianas.ph, cannot be done at physical stores.
    • For exchanges due to size, shipping costs for both the return and delivery of the pair/s will be shouldered by the customer. 
    • For exchanges of defective items, shipping costs for the return of the item and for the delivery of the new item will be shouldered by Havaianas Philippines.
  • Processing and shipping of replacement pairs may take 6 to 14 working days from the date the items are sent for exchange.

For any concerns on the condition or quality of the pair that you received, feel free to reach us at [email protected] for assistance. 

Please take note that exchange requests are assessed on a case-to-case basis. If, upon evaluation, the pair is found to be defective, we will replace it with the same style, color, and size as what you originally purchased. If the same pair is no longer available, you may choose another style of the same value.

If you wish to refund purchases made on Havaianas.ph, it will be refunded based on your preferred options: 

  • For paid orders (non cash payment or gift cards), refunds will be done through store credit or through the same payment method.
  • For COD orders, refunds will be done through store credit or via our GCash account to either your personal GCash account or your preferred bank. 

Processing of refunds may take 1 to 3 working days from the date the items are received at the warehouse.

Havaianas reserves the right to disapprove returned pairs that are worn out or damaged through improper use. If this is the case, no exchange will be allowed and the item will be sent back to the customer.
