As usual in fashion retail, KOALA.CH proposes reduced prices and discounts at certain times in the year on selected products. The goals are varied, but generally the objective is to propose these products at a lower price when the season comes to an end, and the chances to sell it at regular price become lower. It is therefore logical that when buying a product at a certain moment, a customer cannot in principle claim any compensation for subsequent changes in prices of that product. However, KOALA.CH commits to reimburse the difference in price when the purchase was made less than 10 days prior to the change. You must then send a request by email or call our customer service. Beyond 10 days, no claim will be accepted. Moreover, customers who pay on invoice cannot return a pair to reorder the same pair at a lower price. This is to avoid abuse, and whenever this happens, the customer will only be reimbursed the lower price paid for the pair, regardless of timing of purchase.
We put a great deal of attention on the selection of the products we put for sale on our website in order to guarantee their quality. Should you have any quality issue with our products, please contact us.

Shipping is free for all orders except where specifically mentioned on the product details page and the shopping basket. We reserve the right to split an order in several packages, or to regroup orders made by the same customer and deliverable to the same address.
In general, we only show on the site items that are physically in our warehouse to avoid delivery delays or stock unavailability risks. However, inventory differences can prevent us from delivering a product. We commit in this case to inform you in the shortest time, and to propose alternative products. In any case, a refund will always be possible.
