At long last, both Zara and H&M are joining the world of E-commerce!
After much anticipation, Zara’s online store will be launching on 2nd September and H&M will be joining them in the online space just a fortnight later. This is GREAT news for Zara and H&M fans and has been a long time coming!
Although Zara does already have their homeware collection available to buy online, the full clothing collection will also be on their website which up until now has only been obtainable in their shops. It’s not only the Brits who will be able to access Zara clothing online on 2nd September, they are also launching their French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese sites on the same day! We do hope that Zara have stocked up on bandwidth for their big launch as there will be lots of eager shoppers rushing online on the day!
H&M is the world’s 3rd largest clothing retailer and it is incredible that they are so far behind in getting into the online retail market in the UK. As well as their women’s, men’s and children’s clothing collections, H&M are also launching a brand new homeware collection on their website too.
With both Zara and H&M joining the online shopping world, September is set to be a good month for high street shopaholics!

Good news for online shopaholics!
Did you know that EU legislation has been brought in which means that if you order anything online (or over the phone or fax, basically anywhere other than in a shop) you have 7 working days to change your mind? If you do decide to return the goods, the seller must give you a full refund INCLUDING the postage costs – bonus!
So, what are the catches?
– Well, you have to return the FULL order to get the shipping charges back, so it doesn’t apply if you keep part of the order.
– Returns costs aren’t covered, sending the order back to the seller is still your responsibility.
– This rule doesn’t apply if you have brought from an individual rather than a company.
– There are a few things excluded such as concert tickets, hotel bookings, plane or train tickets and also food and drink delivered to you by regular delivery.
This is great news if you have a habit of impulse-buying and then changing your mind, and also for first time ordering from companies, in the past there was a risk element of losing the postage charges if returning. If you don’t like what you see, or simply change your mind, you will get all your money back within 30 days.
Thinking about all of the £4.95’s that have been wasted in the past when returning orders, this legislation is most certainly welcomed with open arms!
