PLACING AN ORDER

DO I NEED TO CREATE AN ANITA FLAVINA ACCOUNT TO PLACE AN ORDER?

You do not need to create an account to make a purchase. However, we recommend that you set up an ANITA FLAVINA account to enjoy the benefits of managing your account which includes saving your payment information, address details and reviewing your order history.

HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER?

Placing an order is easy, simply follow these steps:

  • Shop by browsing through any of our product categories and view more detail on each product page.
  • Add your chosen size to your shopping bag by clicking on the ‘ADD TO BAG’ button.
  • Review the items you have selected by clicking on the ‘MY BAG’. To delete an item from your shopping bag, click on the 'REMOVE' button next to the item.
  • To finalise your purchases, click ‘CHECKOUT SECURELY’ and follow the instructions.

If you are interested in an item which is not available to purchase online, you can email or call us, and we will try and locate the product. If you would prefer to place your order by telephone, you may do so by calling our online Customer Services team on 07779 640 992, who are on hand to help between 23:00 (GMT) Sunday and 23:00 (GMT) Friday. This excludes Easter Sunday and Christmas day.

 

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

ANITA FLAVINA shoes come in Italian sizing and are true to size, except for our Ladies Latin shoes we recommend to order one size below your normal shoe size. Please refer to our size guide for further information. This information is also available on the individual product pages.

WHY ARE SOME ITEMS LISTED AS PRE-ORDER?

We give you the opportunity to get the first look at our new season collections and the unique chance to reserve and purchase these key pieces in your size. Pre-ordered items are not immediately available to be shipped out to you as they are still being created by our craftsmen.

We provide you with estimated delivery times on the product page of your chosen item, please note these are guidelines and we will update you once the order has been shipped.

Please note if you have purchased a pre-ordered item and an item that is immediately available on the same order, items will be dispatched as and when they become available.

HOW DO I KNOW IF AN ITEM IS IN STOCK?

The size dropdown list on the product page will specify whether your size is available to purchase or Out of Stock. If the item is in your love list ‘SOLD OUT’ will be displayed.

Please be aware that if an item is in your love list or shopping basket, it is not reserved and can still be sold to another customer. If you are interested in an item which is not available to purchase online, you can email or call us, and we will try and locate the product for you.

HOW WILL I KNOW THAT MY ORDER HAS BEEN PLACED SUCCESSFULLY?

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation. This does not mean your order has been accepted. Once the details have been verified, your order will be accepted and the item will then be dispatched. You will receive a further email notification once your order is dispatched.

Our Customer Service team may be in contact once your order has been placed, as in some cases we may need to verify some details.

CAN I CANCEL OR AMEND ANY OF MY ORDER DETAILS?

Unfortunately, once your order has been placed we may be able to assist you to change any of the details.
