What do I do if the item I am looking for is no longer available?
City Chic’s most popular items do tend to sell out quickly online. If you’ve seen something you must have, then we would suggest you order it without delay. Seasonal items are typically not restocked, but we may receive a return that would make the item available again. We have no way to predict this, so we would encourage you to check back frequently.
I ordered an item and it did not ship with my order, when will it still be sent to me?
Occasionally an item is oversold in our warehouse, especially items on clearance that are low on stock.When an item is low on stock and more customers place orders for what we have available it has been oversold and we cannot send it to everyone who has ordered it. Our inventory is updated frequently, but occasionally this will happen and we are sorry for any disappointment caused as a result.It is not likely we will receive more of the item and you will be refunded for the item not shipped, with notice given via a Credit Memo indicating a refund has been processed for the item and your bank has been notified of this.We do not back order items so we cannot send it to you at a later date. Should the item become available again you will need to place a new order. It is possible the oversold item is still showing as available on the website. If you see this, please send us an email so that we will be able to look in to the item and confirm whether or not it is out of stock.Unfortunately we are not able to substitute for items that we are not able to fulfill on your order.
What forms or payment do you accept?

How does PayPal work?
PayPal is used to securely send payments over the internet. PayPal is incredibly safe and committed to protecting the privacy of its users. PayPal’s fraud prevention team is constantly developing the latest technology to keep your money and personal information safe.When using PayPal you can choose from your bank account, debit card/credit card account or PayPal balance to make a purchase online. When you use PayPal to make purchases, the recipients never see your bank account or credit card numbers.Refunds from City Chic processed through PayPal are received much faster than when making a purchase with your Visa/MasterCard and PayPal does not charge the international fee that some banks will apply for foreign transactions.
What is the International Fee?
City Chic Online is based in Sydney, Australia. Many US banks will charge an international fee between 1-3% for purchases made to companies outside the US. Even though we warehouse and ship our items from Michigan, City Chic is still considered an international company, so your bank may charge you an extra fee for the transaction.The fee does not originate with City Chic and we have no way to predict which banks will apply the fee. We ask that you contact your banking institution for further information.As noted above, PayPal does not collect any additional fees for an international transaction. Should you have an issue with a potential international fee we would encourage you to use PayPal for your transaction. City Chic will not be held responsible for these fees and cannot issue any refunds for the fees as we are not connected with this transaction.

My transaction is being declined...but I have money in my account, why?
