DANIEL AVAKIAN pricing and payment
Why is DANIEL AVAKIAN pricing different?
It's down to our unique business model. At DANIEL AVAKIAN, you're shopping items from our luxury brands and partner boutiques worldwide.
Prices are determined by each DANIEL AVAKIAN brand and partner boutique, so the price of the same item may vary depending on where it's coming from and your location. That's also why placing an item in your shopping bag or wishlist won't reserve it at a particular price.
Although we don’t have any control over price variation, we'll always offer you the best price available to your destination when you place your order.
To view the most accurate prices, select your delivery destination on our website.
Which currencies can I shop in?
This is determined by your delivery destination and will be displayed at checkout before placing your order. If your local currency is unavailable, your order will be charged in USD for a competitive exchange rate.
When will my card be charged?
If you pay by debit card or PayPal, DANIEL AVAKIAN will take payment when you place your order.
Which payment methods do you accept?

Delivery, duties and taxes
What does Climate Conscious delivery mean?
We’re investing in global environmental projects to balance out the carbon impact of every single delivery and return we make. Read more about this on our Climate Conscious delivery page
How much will I be charged for delivery?
This varies depending on the size, weight and destination of your chosen items. The good news is we offer One Delivery Fee for orders above a certain threshold – this means you can order multiple pieces from multiple locations for one fee. You'll see the delivery fee at the checkout.
Do you offer Same Day delivery?
Yes, we offer a Same Day delivery service in Berlin, London, Manchester, Paris, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Milan, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Hong Kong SAR, Dubai and Shanghai. Order before 11:00 in the morning to receive your delivery the same day, and after 11:00 for the next business day.
When will I receive my item and how can I track delivery?
Once your order is confirmed, we'll send it within 2 business days. Depending on your location and selected delivery method, delivery can take 2-7 business days. If you ordered from multiple DANIEL AVAKIAN brands and partner boutiques, your items will arrive separately. We'll email you with the tracking information and an estimated delivery date when each item is sent.
You can also track your order by heading to Orders & Returns in your account. Opted for guest checkout? Track your guest order here

DANIEL AVAKIAN ships to the following destinations on a Delivery Duties Paid (DDP) basis:
European Union, The United Kingdom, USA, Canada, China Mainland, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Singapore, Republic Of Korea, Kuwait, Mexico, Qatar, India, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan Region, Thailand, U.A.E, Japan, Brazil, Isle of Man, San Marino, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Egypt, Lebanon, Hong Kong SAR, The Canary Islands and Bahrain.

For US customers, DANIEL AVAKIAN does not collect sales or use tax in all states. Your purchase may be subject to sales or use tax, unless your state is exempt from taxation.

For more details, please contact your local customs office, respective tax authority or view our Duties and Taxes information
Why can't certain items be delivered to me?
While DANIEL AVAKIAN delivers internationally, the brands on our website can determine where their items are distributed — so some may not be available to order in all regions. Some items may also be restricted by local customs in the country you are sending to. If you have any questions, contact our global Customer Service team
I didn't receive my invoice with my order. Where can I find it?
We're creating a more sustainable shopping experience. To reduce waste, invoices have been removed from DANIEL AVAKIAN orders. Sign in to your account on our website to download your digital invoice, or if you placed an order as a guest, enter your guest order details here

I want to return my order but I need my invoice for customs clearance. Will it still be included in my order?
Yes – invoices for customs clearance will still be included in your DANIEL AVAKIAN order. When you're preparing your return, you'll need to include the Return Note outside the DANIEL AVAKIAN package.
How do I return my item?

Find out more about preparing your package for return here
Does my order need to be returned in the DANIEL AVAKIAN package it arrived in?
We recommend returning your item in the reusable DANIEL AVAKIAN package provided, but if you're unable to do that, please find a suitable box so that items are returned in perfect condition. Items must be returned undamaged and unused, with all tags attached, including original packaging and branded boxes.
Will the courier collect multiple packages?
Yes, your courier may be able to collect multiple packages. If you're returning items to multiple DANIEL AVAKIAN brands or partner boutiques, you'll still need to request a separate collection for each package in your account. If you placed your order as a guest, enter your guest order details here
When will I receive my refund?
You can track your return by using the tracking number assigned to your Return Label. As soon as it's accepted by our brand or partner boutique, we'll send you a confirmation email.
Your refund will be processed to your original payment method. This can take up to 14 days to show in your account, depending on your payment provider.
Will delivery costs & duties be refunded on return?
While we offer a Free Collection service for all returns, the original delivery cost won’t be included in your refund. If you placed an order to a Delivery At Place (DAP) destination, taxes and duties are non-refundable through DANIEL AVAKIAN. You may be able to recover these by contacting your local customs office directly. If you placed an order to a Delivery Duties Paid (DDP) destination, taxes and duties are refundable through DANIEL AVAKIAN.
Can I return my made-to-order item?
We are unable to accept returns as made-to-order items are created to your specification.
What does pre-order mean?
You can get early access to next season's most wanted pieces before they're released.
When will my pre-order item arrive?
As soon as your item has been released and is ready to be sent, you'll receive an email with the estimated delivery date.

Size and fit
Where can I find size conversion charts?
View our size conversion charts by selecting Size Guide, which you can find above the select size menu, on the product information page.
How can I get a better understanding on how a piece will fit?
Go to the product information page and select the Size & Fit tab to view the size, fit, cut and model measurements. You can find the material composition and care instructions on The Details tab.
What's the difference between size, fit, cut and material?
The size of an item refers to the designer size on the label, fit describes how the item will fit on the body, cut is the silhouette and the material describes what the item is made from. To find this information, go to the product information page and view The Details and Size & Fit tab.
Why do designer sizes vary?
International sizes are slightly different when converted and some designers fit larger or smaller than others. That's why we provide specific information for each item.
What if my item doesn't fit?
If your item doesn't fit, you can return it with our free returns service. If you'd like to place another order, you can do this online or contact our global Customer Service team

Are there any brands excluded from promotional discounts?

How do I know if my item is eligible for a promotion?

My promo code has expired. Can I request another one?
