Frequently Asked Questions

Delivery

We aim to despatch orders within no more than two working days, but please note that it can take longer during exceptionally busy periods such as sale periods.

Once despatched, most UK orders arrive within two working days, but please allow up to seven working days - if you need your order in a hurry, we'd suggest using our express delivery option. Most international orders arrive within five working days once despatched, but please allow up to ten working days. For some countries, an express delivery option is available at an additional cost. If available for your country, this option will be presented on the payment screen.

Whether you can track your parcel or not will depend on which delivery firm is handling your parcel. Details on how to track your parcel can be found in the email we send you once we have despatched your order.

Yes. For £6.00 we can offer an express delivery service. If you order before 5pm Monday to Friday then your order will be delivered on the next working day. If you ordered after 5pm on a Friday then your order will be delivered on the second working day. Most UK postcodes are covered, but some exceptions do apply - please see our delivery page for more information.

UK orders are despatched via Hermes or Royal Mail. International orders are delivered by various different delivery firms. The firm chosen for delivery is predetermined by your location and the weight of your parcel, and this is something which cannot be overridden. The ‘final mile’ of the delivery process of some international orders will be carried out by your country’s postal service provider.

All UK orders are subject to a £4.00 delivery charge except when ordering Joe Browns postal gift vouchers (if you order only a postal voucher then you will be charged a reduced P&P rate of £2.00). Please note that you will pay only one fee of £4.00 even if we despatch your order in separate stages. Likewise, we won't charge any additional fees if you return an item to be exchanged for alternative items. Express delivery is available for an extra £2.00, a total of £6.00. For full details about express delivery, please see our delivery page.

Feel free to create an one by clicking Create An Account. It's quick, it's easy and it lets you add as many addresses to your address book as you want. Creating an account also brings other benefits like being able to keep track of your orders.

BFPO parcels are subject to a flat rate charge of £7.00. The reason for this higher charge is that the MOD do not allow us to ship items directly to BFPO overseas addresses due to security reasons. As a result of this, the only approved method of us delivering your parcel to you is via a central MOD collection point. After we have delivered your parcel to the MOD, they then complete the delivery on our behalf and bill us for doing so. Regrettably, this isn't a cost that we can absorb, hence the £3.00 surcharge.

A signature may be required upon delivery. If you are not at the delivery address to sign for the parcel then the delivery firm will usually attempt a further two deliveries and subsequently return the parcel to us. Alternatively, if the courier deems it safe to do so, they may possibly leave the parcel in a secure location on your premises or with a neighbour. Please note that we cannot be held responsible if you are not at the delivery address to accept your parcel when it is delivered.

No. We only charge one P&P fee, which is billed at the point of us despatching the first part of your order.

Yes, in the form of our delivery partner's ParcelShop service. For more details, please click here.

More Questions

If your code isn't working, it's likely it's invalid or has expired.

Please carefully check you're entering the correct code - if possible, we'd suggest copying/pasting to make life easier.

Be sure to check you're entering zeros as zeros and O's as O's. If in doubt, please contact us and we'll gladly take a look for you.

Only one promotional code can be redeemed against any one order. Promotional codes cannot be redeemed against orders that have been submitted to us via an affiliate website, unless the promotional code is used in lieu of any benefits that have been offered by the affiliate partner.

A gift voucher will have a set value, e.g. £5.00, and will contribute a payment towards the overall cost of your order, reducing the amount that you pay towards the order. A discount code, however, will actually reduce the value of the order rather that reducing the amount that you have to pay towards the overall cost of the order - a discount code could, for example, be an offer of free P&P or a 10% discount.

No, we do not offer credit, account facility or ‘buy now, pay later’ options at the moment. However, we do work with partners that can help - please visit LookAgain or Kaleidoscope for further information.

Sizing

A selection of our designs are available to buy in larger sizes than we ourselves carry. You can purchase these items from Simply Be's UK website or Simply Be's US website. Please click here for more information.

We would tend to suggest that you order from us the same size that you would order from other stores. However, it can be useful to check the online reviews about a particular product, as these reviews can give advice on whether an item is a particularly loose or tight fit etc (product reviews can be found on each product's page, beneath the "add to bag" button).

As Joe Browns grows, we hope that we'll eventually be able to offer a children's clothes, although we are currently concentrating on developing our men's and ladies range at this moment in time.

More Questions

If the item is shown as sold out then it is unlikely to be restocked. However, if we were to receive any returns of that item then it may be restocked temporarily in small numbers, so it might be worth checking back from time to time. An item that is due to be restocked by us after having sold out will be shown online as being available to back-order ‐ this is indicated by the number of weeks that there are to wait until the item will be restocked.
