If you are returning an item because of an error on our part or because it is faulty, we will be happy to refund the costs incurred in sending it back to us. As a standard procedure, this happens only once we receive the garment back from you and our production team confirms that there is a manufacturing fault. Otherwise, you will be responsible for those charges.
Please note that items that are damaged because of normal wear and tear are not considered faulty.
Eligibility to Purchase
In order to make purchases through the Site, you will be requested to register and provide your personal details. In particular, Customers must provide their real name, phone number, e-mail address and other requested information as indicated. Furthermore, when ordering items, you will be required to provide payment details and you represent and warrant that the payment details you provide on ordering are both valid and correct and you confirm that you are the person referred to in the Billing information provided.
The Site is available only to individuals and others who meet the Merc’s terms of eligibility, who have been issued a valid credit card by a bank acceptable to Merc, whose applications are acceptable to Merc and who have authorised Merc to process a charge or charges on their credit card in the amount of the total purchase price for the merchandise which they purchase. Merc reserves the right to restrict multiple quantities of an item being shipped to any one customer or postal address.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability.
Merc offers products for sale that are in stock and available for dispatch from our distribution centre.
Please note that items in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers.
Prices shown on the Site are in GBP.
All prices and offers remain valid as advertised from time to time. The price of a product displayed on the Site at the time the order is accepted will be honored, except in cases of patent error.
Customers purchasing from a country served as DDU will be charged for the items purchased and shipping costs only. Import duty or tax costs will be invoiced to you directly from DHL or an import broker appointed by you; we recommend you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to purchase completion.
Sale Price Adjustment Policy
We are unable to offer price adjustment on items originally purchased in a sale or on any special promotion items that are temporarily reduced in price. Once an item has been purchased at a discounted sale price, no price adjustment will be offered should the item be further marked-down.
Acceptance of your Order
Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it.
Unless you cancel your order, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and Merc will be completed when we email you to confirm the goods have been dispatched. The sale contract is therefore concluded in London, England and the language of the contract is English.
We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, that shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, that the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out within the TOS.
We may also refuse to process and therefore accept a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any merchandise from the Site whether or not that merchandise has been sold; removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the Site; refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.
Payment can be made by Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Delta, Maestro debit cards and any other methods which may be clearly advertised on Merc.com from time to time. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorized by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to Merc, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We take all reasonable care to make our web site secure. All credit card transactions on this site are processed using Secure Trading, a secure online payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment. If you are a registered Merc user, these details will be fully encrypted and only used to process card transactions which you have initiated.
Insurance and Delivery
Merc insures each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfillment by Merc.
Receiving a Refund
Your refund will be credited to the original purchaser's credit card account and will exclude shipping costs (with the exception of faulty items) which we deduct to cover the cost of our collection service. This can take up to ten days to process.
