At the mail address you have entered, you will receive an email with the following message: "Thank you for creating a customer account in GU Planet" (if you do not receive the activation email within a few minutes, it may be in your Spam Inbox since it is the first time we establish contact).
Make sure the "Delivery address" and billing data are correct. You can add new shipping addresses to receive your order at work, or to send to friends, family, or simply to an address other than the usual. Choose the delivery option of your order that suits you in "Shipping Mode" and in the next step select the "Payment mode" (See details in the PAYMENT / Secure Payment sections). This way you will have finished placing your order, which will be sent as soon as possible in agreement with the options you have chosen.
Buy online from any country
Currently, you can purchase in Spain.
In any case, see the conditions and shipping prices to countries that are not on the European continent or countries adjacent to the location of our warehouse in SPAIN.
In the event a product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information received from our suppliers, GU Planet has the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed with the products listed at the incorrect price, if the order has been confirmed and your credit card debit or credit card has been charged.
If your bank or credit card has already made the payment for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we will immediately send a credit to your bank account or credit card with the amount of the purchase.
Usually, most of the products shown on the web have immediate availability, and GU Planet strives, in that sense, in everything depending on the provision that their suppliers ensure. However, when there is no stock or that it is limited, you can check the availability of a given product in the information displayed on the detail page for that product. The non-immediate availability of a product is determined as follows:
3 or 4 days, 2 or 3 weeks To Be Confirmed.
If an item is not in stock or your order is above the current stock you cannot buy it immediately but in the deadline. Products with low production or distribution, limited, or subject to seasonal variations, appear labelled as "To be confirmed".
If you have questions about the availability of a product that is of your interest, you can send an email through the link "Contact" and get more detailed information about it.
You will get the same product you have seen by photo and description of the website, but it may be the case that the product received is not in the same language you've chosen on the web because the manufacturer does not label the product on that language. In this sense, GU Planet strives for, as a customer, you feel close and comfortable while browsing and interested in what we offer, and therefore, we provide the full translations of the names and descriptions of the products, whether in LANGUAGE 1, LANGUAGE 2, or LANGUAGE X, depending on your convenience.

Receipt of your order by courier
You can receive it in the direction you choose: home, work, etc., but never a PO Box or APO / FPO / BFPO military addresses.

Send gifts to people in other locations or countries
It is another possibility for you.
During the purchase process, shipment data are requested, and you will have to select a delivery address. Default (same customer data) or add a new shipping address:
Simply add the new address.
In the Canary Islands, Ceuta, Melilla or countries other than Spain, follow the rules defined by customs.
You must create an account with all tax details of the addressee. The order must be filled with the recipient's name and in the currency of the country of delivery.
We also need your confirmation, as well as credit card data and a phone number.
Can you stop a shipment that has already left the GU Planet facilities?
That is not possible. Once an order has already left our factory for delivery to the customer, we have no chance to stop it.
All products have a transport insurance included in the price. When the material is received, you must make the corresponding status check, and if deficiencies are found you must make a claim within a period of 24-48 hours (working days) from the receipt thereof. Otherwise, GU Planet declines all responsibility.
Remember that any incident detected on receipt of the goods must be clearly stated, and you must complain to the courier or postal worker at the time of delivery.
If the package is opened or broken, do not admit it, or insurance will not pay the incidence.
All orders destined for the Iberian Peninsula effected before 12:00 pm leave the same day and are delivered within 24 hours. Orders placed after 12:00 pm will leave the next working day, and will be delivered within the next 24 hours (in working days). Orders shipped to Balearic and Canary Islands have a delivery time between 7 and 15 days.
The postal and courier companies guarantee these lead times we hire, and they also rely on our suppliers. However, they are indicative, considering that besides being a service offered by third parties, there are aspects such as inclement weather, delayed communications, traffic, major causes, etc. we can not control. Even so in GU Planet, we do our best to ensure the availability of our products to send them within the specified time period.
Should a delay occur, it does not imply the cancellation of the order or any compensation. We will notify you by email and ship the product as soon as possible. If you have ordered several products, you may have them arriving separately.
You must check the availability of the products before placing your order.
Delivery times depend on the shipment type and stock variants. When the product is in stock ( "immediate" availability) or reach the end of availability recorded in the web ( "3 or 4 days", "2 or 3 weeks," "TBC") the order will be sent immediately and you will receive it the time specified by the chosen shipment mode.
If your order, or part of it, is linked to the "To Be Confirmed" status you will receive an e-mail with the confirmation information when the product is in our hands and is about to be sent. Or another e-mail to alert if it is not possible for us to send the order.
In the latter case, if you had paid the product, the amount will be returned in the form of a voucher.
When an order contains several products with different availability may happen that you receive them in different shipments. This is not going to incur any additional expense if the shipment is destined within Spain or Portugal or the metropolitan United Kingdom.
In the case of an order to any of the other international destinations, it will be sent when all products of this order are available.
You can also choose whether to assume the costs of shipment duplicity, or cancel the product which delays forwarding by having a longer period of availability.
In any case, you will receive periodic e-mails about the state or change of status of your order.
Any shipment within the Peninsula will cost 5 euros. The cost of shipments to the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla will depend on the weight of the cart, and the customs retentions must be added to the lead times. For these cases, we recommend to write an email to email@example.com with the products you want to receive (named as they appear on the web), indicating the zip code of the place, your e-mail and your phone, and we will contact you shortly to give you a quote.
Shipping costs appear properly detailed during the purchase process in "View Order", first as an estimate and then, once you have entered your shipping address and filled the rest of the form, with the actual price. Anyway, you can always see the total order, including transport amount, before process it.
Shipments to the Iberian Peninsula have no cost provided they are orders over 35 euros. For shipments to the islands, please consult customer service. In the free delivery, we reserve the right to send the orders by the most appropriate means of transport at any time in our sole discretion.
Do you have to pay something to the package delivery?
Deadline to make a return.
We accept product returns within the first 14 days from the date of receipt (provided that the conditions governing the Law 47/2002 of trade management be met).
To return a defective or wrong item
The products can always return as they are in perfect condition and are returned in their original packaging; after 14 days we cannot accept returns.
In the case where the package or the product has been opened and it has identified a manufacturing defect or error in shipment preparation (and only in these cases), send us an email and we will attend to it firstname.lastname@example.org soon as possible to explain the return process.
The customer must bear the cost of returning until the moment GU Planet has made the necessary checking. In the event that the return is justified, the transport costs of the return will be refunded, adding the amount to the coupon payment.
When and how the amount of your refund will be received
Upon receipt of the material in our warehouse and reviewed by our staff, the payment will be made, if appropriate, being deducted from your next purchase using a coupon for the amount thereof.
