Policy & Process
Click here to submit an online return. A return request must be submitted to receive your refund within normal processing times.
This section of the policy is for In-Store and Online Purchases.
You may return or exchange (where available) your Zimmermann Online Store purchase, including sale items, by returning it to a Zimmermann Store in Australia or by sending it back to the Zimmermann Australia Online Store. Subject to adherence to the following terms (Zimmermann Outlets are excluded):
For in-store full-price purchases, returns other than for faulty goods must be made within 7 days for credit note or exchange. All sale items purchased in store are final sale. No refunds unless required by law.
For online purchases, returns other than for faulty goods must be made within 15 days from the date of delivery, for refund, credit note or exchange.
Returns only accepted with proof of purchase.
Unless the return is required by law:
• Items must be in original condition (including tags) and must not have been worn, altered or washed.
• Items must not have been used in photography shoots, Instagram posts, online, commercially or for personal gain.
• For online purchases, all packaging (including garment bags) shipped with your order must be returned.
• Every clothing item has a tag attached reading "Once this tag is removed, this garment cannot be returned". Once this tag has been removed, the garment is no longer returnable.
• For all swimwear and lingerie, clients must try on items wearing undergarments. If returned, the protective hygiene strip must remain in place and the top and pant sizes of bikini sets must match. Returns will not be accepted if the protective hygiene strip is removed or altered, the top and pant sized of bikini sets differ, or the item otherwise shows signs of wear.
• Try on shoes on soft surfaces before they are worn as we will not accept shoes returned with sole markings or scratches. Ensure shoes are returned with original shoebox.
• Gift Cards may not be returned and will be honoured for 3 years from the date of issue. Gift Cards are valid for use on the Australian Online Store, and in Zimmermann stores nationally.
• All purchases on earrings, tights, hair clips, hair chignons, and hair pins are final sale. We will not accept returns on these items due to hygiene reasons.
• If a client has exchanged a garment for a credit note, and then seeks to return the garment which was purchased with that credit note, Zimmermann may refuse the return.
This policy does not apply to Zimmermann Outlets or David Jones Concessions.
Should you wish to return an item, Zimmermann do not refund international prepaid duties and taxes paid at the time of checkout for Delivered Duties Paid (DDP) orders or duties and taxes paid at time of customs entry for Delivered Duties Unpaid (DDU) orders with the exception of New Zealand tax (tax only). Residents from all other countries can contact their local customs office to obtain a tax refund.
While Zimmermann covers the costs of returns using the prepaid returns label within AU & NZ, return postage costs are not refundable and we do not refund initial shipping charges for goods returned, other than for faulty items. All international returns should be shipped back to Zimmermann as goods returned to sender to ensure no duties and taxes are incurred for the return. For exchanged items Zimmermann will cover the shipping cost, however duties and taxes will be collected for the exchanged items as per our duties and taxes terms.
In-store purchases cannot be returned to the online store.
Online purchases may be returned to a Zimmermann store. All new items following an in store exchange will be subject to the In Store Purchases Policy. All in-store refunds will be processed by our Online Client Services team, subject to these terms.
For returns to the Zimmermann online store, follow the procedure below.
You may return or exchange (where available) your Zimmermann Online purchase, including sale items, to a Zimmermann store. All in-store returns will be subject to the Returns Policy detailed above. All new items following an in-store exchange will be subject to the same Return Policy.

To return your purchase take the item(s) you wish to return or exchange to a Zimmermann store at your convenience, along with your confirmation email and all other paperwork and packaging included in your order. Zimmermann Outlets, Head Office, and David Jones Concessions are excluded.
