So the OP should be thanked for getting this noted. It might prevent someone from taking a risk on a size.
Plenty of companies don’t cover the price of returns if the item doesn’t fit, sports direct for one, nobody misread what was said the poster didn’t need to gove a WARNING it’s on the website and PayPal should be used to cover returns

Now Sportsdirect on the other hand......., order held up for weeks, packages arrive torn open, missing items, lousy customer service and some of their offerings are sh1te quality and ridiculous sizing. I would of thought that 34 inch waist jeans was a standard size but the ones they once sent me would have allowed my ex to fit inside them too. Now if she would have done, maybe she wouldn't be my ex.......?

Same with JD Sports. The amount of times your order gets cancelled now after 4 or 5 days.

Why do they have stuff up that is out of stock?

It should be pointed out that it might be a lot more awkward buying from the UK after they finally jump of the Brexit cliff, and the transactions are of a different "construct". People might get stung for such things as import handling charges, the same as applies from buying from non-EU countries now.

but the poster wasn't complaining about paying for a return in the post. They simply mentioned to watch out as there is a cost as a warning to those that may buy clothes - which is totally fair. And the next poster sorta came like a ton of bricks with the usual aggressive crap as if some big company needed defending in some sort of way.

7 items, either didn't fit or rubbish

Consider this a do not use alert from a disgruntled customer.

EDIT: Was not aware of returns option if using PayPal, thanks for that. But if I buy €70 of goods from a .ie domain and then find I have to pay €30 for tracked postage to return to the UK the "bargain" piece isn't really working for me.
but paypal give you the return postage back to the value of 30 euro so items can still be bought at bargain prices

Yes to warn those new customers before ordering that there is a cost. It doesn't mean its negative to the company. Lots of companies charge for returns and lots don't.

All I can see is pure advice given that may save a bargain hunter from falling foul of the returns policy.

The original poster was highly aggressive back to the poster, that's what provoked a reply in kind.

Anyway. Don't want to further derail this thread.
