FAQ

Shipping Information

How much will it cost to ship my order?

Shipping costs vary by country and the method of shipping selected. Click here for a complete list of countries we deliver to, and applicable shipping charges.

Please note that duties, taxes and carrier brokerage fees are strictly enforced and are not included in your order amount at checkout. These will be assessed upon delivery by the postal carrier, and must be paid by the order recipient.

Will I be charged duties, taxes or carrier brokerage fees?

Most likely, yes. Duties, taxes and any applicable carrier brokerage fees are not included in your order total at checkout at anthropologie.com.

Carrier brokerage fees will be assessed upon delivery by the postal carrier, and must be paid by the order recipient. Duties and taxes are determined by the customs agency within the destination country. They are based on the value of the order and the tax–free threshold, if it exists, for imported goods. More information can be obtained by contacting your local customs office.

What is a carrier brokerage fee?

Some local postal carriers may charge an additional brokerage fee on orders arriving from outside your country. These charges, if applicable, are assessed upon the delivery of your package by the postal carrier, and must be paid by the order recipient. Please contact your local postal carrier for more information.

Please note that these fees are neither calculated, nor imposed, by Anthropologie, and will not be included in your order total at checkout. Carrier brokerage fees are nonrefundable.

When can I expect my order to ship?

Most in–stock items ship within 24 hours of ordering; however, some orders may take up to 48 hours to process. Please note that we do not ship on Saturdays, Sundays or US holidays.

Orders may be split across multiple shipments, and items ordered together may not be shipped out on the same day. Occasionally, items may be out–of–stock or backordered. You will be alerted in both instances, and in the event of a backorder, will be provided an approximate date of shipment. You will be informed if an item is backordered when you add it to your basket or within ten days of placing your order.

Can I cancel or modify my order before it ships?

Unfortunately, we are unable to make changes, including cancellations, to orders after they have been submitted.

An item may only be canceled if it is currently backordered. If you would like to cancel a backordered item, please email service@anthropologie.com or call 1.800.309.2500. For assistance in French, email anthrofr@anthropologie.com. For assistance in Spanish, email anthroesp@anthropologie.com.

How will I know when my order has shipped?

You will receive an email notification confirming shipment (be sure to check your spam folder). Please note that items are only charged to your selected method of payment once they have shipped.

If items in my order ship separately, will I be charged extra?

Anthropologie will not charge any extra shipping and handling fees. The fee quoted at checkout will be prorated and applied based on the value of each individual shipment.

Multiple packages may, however, be subject to additional carrier brokerage fees if your order ships in multiple packages. These are determined by your local postal carrier, and must be paid by the order recipient.

What does it mean if an item is backordered?

If you place an order for an item that is not available for immediate shipment, it will be backordered. You will be informed if an item is backordered at the time you add it to your basket, or within 10 days of placing your order. You will also be given an approximate date of shipment.

You will not be charged for backordered items until they leave the US. Please note that your method of payment may be charged in your local currency at an exchange rate selected by the issuing bank at the time of shipment, and may also include foreign transaction fees. These are not determined by Anthropologie, and are not included in your order total at checkout.

In the event that a backordered item is part of your order, we reserve the right to cancel the item or ship your order in multiple packages. If you would like to cancel a backordered item, please call 1.800.309.2500 or email service@anthropologie.com for assistance in English. For assistance in French, email anthrofr@anthropologie.com. For assistance in Spanish, email anthroesp@anthropologie.com.

If an item is cancelled from your order for any reason, you will not be charged for the item.

Can I ship an item to a store?

Do you ship to PO boxes and APO/FPO addresses?
