If you continue to experience issues, please contact our Customer Service Team by email at email@example.com.
Can I change my shipping address after my order has been sent out?
Computer says no. Once an order has been despatched, the delivery address cannot be changed. This is because your order has already been packed and may have already left our warehouse.
If you have moved house and want to receive the parcel on its way to your old address, try contacting your local Post Office to organise a redirection.
If you are not at the specified delivery address when delivery is attempted, the courier will leave a 'while you were out' card. This will give you the information you need to collect your parcel, or have it redelivered elsewhere.
Can I order over the phone?
Yes, of course you can order over the phone by calling 020 3752 5360 and our lovely Customer Care team will be happy to help.

Please note that your order may be subject to additional security checks.
If you have chosen to pay with a credit or debit card, payment for your order will be taken when the order is despatched. If you decide to pay by PayPal or a White Stuff Gift Card, payment for your order will be processed at the time the order is placed.
Will I get a despatch confirmation email when my order is on its way?
As soon as your order is winging its way to you, you'll get a despatch confirmation email. If there are any problems with your order, we will get in touch.
How do I redeem a discount or special offer?

I want an item, but it is sold out, is there any chance I can still get one?
We're really sorry that we have sold out of the item you wanted. If the item is not displayed on our website, then we have sold out online. Contact our Customer Service Team by email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like us to see if your nearest White Stuff shop has one available.
All items must be collected from the White Stuff shop because, at the moment, they cannot post items to you. We have plans to change this soon.
What does 'Low in Stock' mean?
'Low in Stock' means that there are less than three of that item in our warehouse.
We cannot guarantee that any 'low in stock' item will be despatched. This might be because we take lots of orders at the same time.
When will I know if a 'Low Stock' item is going to be sent to me?
If the item(s) are not available, we will send you an email to tell you, and we will place the item on backorder for you.
If we know that the item is not available and we know we won't be getting any more back in, we will cancel the item from your order and send you an email to confirm this.
Otherwise, the item will be included in your parcel and we will send a 'despatch confirmation email'.
What does it mean when an item I've ordered has been 'backordered'?
It means that we did not have any of your item in stock when the order was placed, but we may be getting some more back in.
If your item was ordered on a status of 'Low Stock' and has since been backordered, we will keep it on backorder for 3 weeks. After this time, we will update you on the status of the item.
If you ordered an item that we knew was delayed and we put it on backorder, we will send you an email when it has been despatched.
Why can't I find the product I'm looking for?
This is because the item you are looking for is either out of stock, or has not arrived yet.
If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Service Team by email at email@example.com.
20th December 2013 - Angora wool update
20th December 2013
White Stuff does not condone animal cruelty.
We currently use Angora wool in some of our accessories and clothing ranges and we are confident in our supplier certification and subsequent investigation which has assured us of their compliance with the ethical sourcing of the Angora wool we use.
However, in response to recent customer concern, we have decided to cease all production using Angora, as we look to replace this with innovative, sustainable and ethically sourced alternatives.
What does 'Limited Collection' mean?
If you see the 'Limited Collection' badge on any product, this indicates that it's only available through our website or our shops in Bluewater, Edinburgh or over the phone via our Customer Care team.

Reviews & Feedback
How do I leave a review?
We really value your opinion - tell us what you think by leaving a review! You can also comment on reviews written by other customers, and share what you've written on Facebook, too.
Anyone can leave a review (in 50 words or more) and as long as it follows some simple rules we'll publish it on the website.
You can rate the product using our star system and tell us whether you thought it was good value, great quality and the perfect fit.
Let us know if you'd recommend it to a friend!
Why can't I see my review on the website?
Firstly, it can take up to 72 hours for a review to be published - we like to have a read before we put them online for all to see!
We're open-minded, and will usually publish your reviews whether they are good, bad or indifferent.
There are just a few reasons why your review might not have been published.
- You said a naughty word - reviews with swearwords or profanity will be declined.
- You mentioned the price - any reviews mentioning the cost of the item won’t be published.
- Offensive comments - we won't post reviews with really offensive comments.
- Competitors - reviews promoting or mentioning competitors won't be allowed (sorry Boden!).
We reserve the right not to publish a review for other reasons too, but we will try our best to publish for all to see.
Can I post pictures with my review?
Yes! You could even post a picture of you wearing your new bit of White Stuff. You can actually post up to six photos per review.
Can I post videos with my review?
Yes, you can share a YouTube video (easy to send from a smartphone or digital video camera). Just choose a nickname for yourself. This will be shown on our website along with your review, so make it as unique as you are. Don't use your real name or your email address - your nickname will be saved so that the next time you write a review, we'll know who you are.
We'll ask you a few more things, if you'd like to share!
If you'd like us to let you know when your review has been posted on the site, just tick the box next to 'Please send me an email when my review is posted'. We can also send you a quick email if another customer comments on your review, so tick the box for this too, if you'd like to know what other people are saying.
You can also tell us all about your White Stuff shopping experience and whether you would recommend us to a friend. We won't show this information on the web, but our customer service teams will see it.
Share your review on Facebook - if you would like your friends to see what you've written just tick the box and we'll do the rest.
How do I comment on a review
You can add a quick comment to any review you've spotted on the site. Why not have a chat with someone else about the product you've just bought.
If you'd like to, you can also add photos and video to your comment.
You'll need to provide an email address so that we can verify your comment. We'll send you a quick email and once you confirm, your comment will be submitted.
Once submitted, your comment will be checked over and go live as soon as possible (we give a maximum waiting time of 72 hours, but it will usually be much speedier than this!)
