All items must be received by the buyer in under 30 days unless you have agreed a longer term in writing (e.g., email) with the buyer.

High Glamour site is a platform for people/businesses to sell to buyers. The legal contract for the purposes of any transaction between a buyer and a seller rests with the buyer and the seller and not High Glamour ltd.
This article sets out the key things you need to know and do as a seller to comply with UK law.
Compliance with the Consumer Contracts (previously Distance Selling) Regulations
Some of the key requirements for sellers are set out in the Consumer Contracts Regulations (previously the Distance Selling Regulations). This legislation sets out the legal requirements for distance selling and selling online. As a Seller on High Glamour website, you are legally bound by these regulations which form part of the legal rights of the consumer.
Providing delivery details. The standard postage terms for High Glamour are 3 days. If your item is not able to be posted in 3 days, then you must state when it will be posted – this should be in the item description. All items must be received by the buyer in under 30 days unless you have agreed a longer term in writing (e.g., email) with the buyer.
Stating your business address (even if this is your home address). This information is provided in the email to the buyer so you should make sure you have added your address on your shop set up / edit screen (via your dashboard). The buyer has a legal right to this information, and it is not optional. If you don’t provide it, you are trading illegally.
Cancellation of the transactions. The buyer must inform you if they wish to cancel the order and they must do this in writing (email is sufficient). Please contact the buyer to organise the return of the goods. Upon receipt of the returned goods, or evidence from the buyer that they have sent the goods back (whichever is soonest), you must provide a full refund of the cost of the item and any postage costs within 14 days. You have a right to deduct monies from refunds where goods “show signs of unreasonable use leading to diminished value”. You cannot usually deduct for removal of packaging to inspect the item, but you can deduct for damage or wear and tear where the item has not just been checked but used. Custom orders are exempt from cancellation unless faulty.
Returns policy for goods that are not faulty. In using High Glamour website, you agree that the buyer has a right to terminate the contract and return the item even if the item is not faulty in any way (this is the consumer’s right in UK law). They have the right to do this up to 14 days after receipt of the items and a refund must be made within 10 days of you receiving the returned goods, or proof of the buyer has sent the goods back (whichever is soonest). The buyer pays for the cost of return postage. Custom orders are exempt from cancellation unless faulty.
Returns policy for faulty goods. The consumer has a right to return goods if they develop a fault up to 30 days after receipt of the goods. Depending on the circumstances, the buyer may be entitled to a free repair, replacement or a full or partial refund.
If the item is lost in transit, then, unless you can prove otherwise, you assume the contract is terminated and you must provide a refund or re-deliver the same item.

Regulation around certain types of goods
All High Glamour sellers must comply with UK product legislation, including the following:
THE GENERAL PRODUCT SAFETY REGULATIONS
The Toy Safety Regulations
The EU Regulation 1223/2009 (Cosmetics Regulation)
The Furniture and Furnishings Fire Safety Regulations
The Hallmark Act 1973
The Nickel in Jewellery Regulations
The Food Imitation Safety Regulations
The Food Hygiene Regulations
In all cases, you should make sure your work complies with the above legislation. If in doubt, contact your local trading standards office.
If you want to sell handmade soaps, scrubs or bath bombs you MUST ensure your products comply with the EU Regulation 1223/2009 (Cosmetics Regulation), even if you only intend to sell on a very small scale. This remains the current legislation covering the production and sale of soap in the UK. The aim of the legislation is to protect the public as well as the maker.
Cosmetics are defined as “any substance or preparation intended to be placed in contact with the various external parts of the human body with a view exclusively or mainly to cleaning them, perfuming them, changing their appearance, correcting body odours, protecting them, or keeping them in good condition” as stated in the The Cosmetics Products (Safety) Regulations 2008. This covers bath bombs, scrubs and soaps that are allowed for sale on High Glamour ltd.
If you sell cosmetics, you should contact your local trading standards office to find out how you can comply with the regulations (which covers use of different ingredients as well as labelling).
A toy is “any product or material designed or clearly intended for use in play by a child of less than 14 years of age” as stated in The Toys (Safety) Regulations 1995. You should contact your local trading standards office to clarify what you need to do to comply with the regulations (there are a couple of different routes you can take both of which require certification).
