Frequently asked questions

Ordering

HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER IN THE G-STAR ONLINE STORE?

When you have selected a garment you wish to purchase, click "Add to Bag". To complete the purchase, click on the shopping cart on the top right hand corner of the screen. This will take you through to the checkout process, where you will enter your shipping and billing address and select a payment method.

I’M HAVING TROUBLE SIGNING IN

If you have trouble signing into our website, first check the specific text of the error message you received. The most common problem is a misspelled address or password (ensure both your CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK facilities are off). If the problem persists, contact Customer Services (through the button”Contact us” at the bottom of any page) and we will email you a new password.

HOW CAN I TRACK MY ORDER?

You can follow the status of your order on your account page. Once your order has been picked the status will change into “completed”. Afterwards you will receive a shipping confirmation with a tracking code.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE TO ORDER?

If you do not have a current G-Star garment on which to base your size, click on the 'Size Guide', which you can find on every product page in the online store. This converts body measurements to G-Star clothing sizes.

CAN I SPECIFY A DIFFERENT SHIPPING ADDRESS?

Yes. In the checkout process (step 2 – Delivery), you can add and select a different address from the billing address.

HOW DO I CREATE AN ONLINE ACCOUNT?

Click on "Account" on the top right-hand corner of any page. Choose "Create account" and follow the instructions as requested.

CAN I CHANGE MY ORDER?

If your garments are still in the Shopping Bag, you can delete them at any time and choose alternative items. If you have completed the checkout process, including payment, then you can no longer make any changes. When you receive your order, you can return those products you do not wish to keep.

CAN I CANCEL MY ORDER?

That depends on its shipping status. Contact Customer Service as soon as possible, quoting your order number. Once your order is already processed it cannot be cancelled.

HOW CAN I CONFIRM G-STAR HAS RECEIVED MY ORDER?

After receiving your order, we will send a confirmation email. Receipt of this confirms your order has been placed successfully. If you created an account, then you can also find your order on your account page.

WILL I HAVE TO PAY ANY ADDITIONAL TAXES AND DUTIES ON MY G-STAR ORDER?

G-star will pay all relevant taxes and duties on your behalf. This means that the total cost of your order includes all relevant taxes and duties and no additional fees will be charged by your local customs authority.

Payment

WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?

DO I RECEIVE AN INVOICE WITH MY ORDER?

Yes. During the checkout process you will enter a billing address. If the shipping address and billing address are the same, the invoice will be attached to your order. If the two addresses are different, a standalone invoice will be sent to your billing address.

HOW DOES PAYING WITH A CREDIT CARD WORK?

If you choose to pay by credit card, you will be asked to fill in your credit card number, name, expiration date, CVC code and possibly a 3D-secure password during Step 4 of the checkout process. Funds are then debited immediately from your credit card supplier. Payments to G-Star are handled by a third-party, certified company, guaranteeing your privacy.

HOW DOES G-STAR GUARANTEE THE SAFETY OF MY ONLINE PAYMENT?

Like the vast majority of online stores, G-Star uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to protect user’s personal information when transmitted via the Internet.
