Checkout + Delivery Cost & Time
Yea: Free shipping for over HK$400 (otherwise HK$40) or store pickup is free
Nah: 3-5 days delivery time. Unclear shipping policy / delivery time at store front.
It is hard to find the shipping and return policy at Zara website, and it does not highlight much the wording
free shipping or
free store pickup which I found a bit weird. If you like to see how much Zara charges for delivery, you need to click
INFO > BUYING GUIDE > DELIVERY or click on the
Shipping details next to the item picture.
When it comes to checkout, Zara does ask you to choose the shipping methods (pick-up in store vs standard shipping), and tell you the expected time for pick-up / delivery.
Yea: SMS notification with tracking info.
Nah: sent too late (4 business days after making order), unclear delivery time
It is surprising to see Zara ship out that late given that it is a domestic delivery. The notification itself contains tracking number and tracking number but it does not say an expected delivery time. However, I receive a SMS from the carrier almost at the same time, saying the Zara order will be delivered within 1 working day.
Yea: Lovely packaging. Nah: Not much
Love the packaging of Zara orders with beautiful box and wrapping paper.
Return Process and Policy
Yea: Return at store. Free return. Zara arranges carrier pick up and no need to print shipping labels. Nah: Not much
