This is the FAQ (frequently asked questions) section for Pixie Cove.
If your specific question is not answered below we have more detailed information on the pages to the right.
Important Christmas Cut-Off Delivery Dates:
Shipping deadlines for busy holiday periods are difficult to pinpoint precisely. At Pixie Cove we do not want our customers to be disappointed. We provide deadlines for the “worst case” scenarios. Orders placed after that, in certain circumstances, will likely make it by the holiday date, but this is something we do not guarantee … please err on the side of caution and order as early as possible. We can offer express shipping in certain circumstances so please contact us directly if this is something you require information on.
For Christmas Delivery Order by : End of Monday November 27th 2017 (Cyber Monday)
Important Christmas Returns Information:
At Pixie Cove we understand the worry about Christmas Presents not fitting or being suitable so we will extend our returns/exchanges policy during this festive period. Any orders placed from 1st November and received by Christmas Day will be accepted in January as long as the item is in it's unused state and you contact us by the 1st January (7 days after Christmas day) to notify us of the return. All other orders will still come under the normal 30 day return policy.

All our product prices are displayed in USD. We are currently exploring currency converters but as yet have not found one that converts correctly to other currencies.
How can I pay for an order?
You may place an order using our secure website, using PayPal or a credit or debit card. We do NOT accept cash on delivery orders.
Why has my card been declined?
We are based in the UK so if you are buying from the USA an online purchase can potentially raise an alert and stall your credit card. If your card is currently in credit / has available credit and you have double checked the details entered then please phone your bank to query this.
How do I contact a member of the Pixie Cove team?
You can contact us through the form under 'Useful Information' or alternativley you can send us a Private Message (PM) on Facebook.
If you are enquiring about an order please include the order number and / or email address you used for placing the order so we have all the information at hand required to look into your enquiry.
We aim to reply to every email / message personally within 24 to 48 hours, however during peak season times of year it may take as long as 72 hours to receive a reply. Please bear in mind we are not 24 hours and only have minimal cover at the weekends and during holidays. We are working in the GMT timeszone so we appreciate your patience in advance.
How do I measure my feet?
The most accurate way to measure your feet is to place each foot in turn on a piece of paper and mark where your big toe ends and where your heel ends. Now measure the distance between the marks in centimetres to give your foot length. Compare this measurement to our chart which is on our Size Chart page.
Please see our video for more detailed instructions.
Note if your second toe is longer than your big toe then use this toe to take the measurement with.
Returns and Problems
My footwear is too big / small
It is well recognised that there is no single measurement in footwear sizing, there is a range, a small range but nevertheless, a range. Our sizes are true to size American sizes and we provide the exact measurements on the product page. We do advise all customers to double check their foot length against the measurements provided.
All widths are standard medium (B, M). This is based on the American medium footwear sizing. The width of any piece of footwear depends on the shoe length.
Pixie Cove cannot be held responsible for the incorrect footwear size being chosen.
If you need further advice, please EMAIL US BEFORE PLACING AN ORDER.
I was sent the wrong size of item
Please photograph the item and show a measuring device or the sizing label beside it and forward this photograph to the pixie cove team. If the supplier has sent the wrong size, then we will replace or refund.
My item was damaged when I received it
Please contact us immediately at Pixie Cove and one of the customer service team will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
I need to return an item
Please check our returns policy on Pixie Cove at this page: http://pixiecove.com/pages/refund-policy.

We will accept returns on sale items unless stated on the product information page for that specific item.
