Shopping Online

Can I shop online outside of my location of residence?
If you are shopping in a different location to where you would like your items delivered, you can always change this at the top of the web page, where it says ‘INTERNATIONAL’. Please note that all the prices, delivery times and delivery charges will be adjusted depending on the market you would like your items shipped to.

How will my parcel be delivered, and how long does delivery take?
We will deliver your parcel within 3-5 business days, excluding customs processing times. During high season and Sale, delivery might take a little longer. Please note that COS is not responsible for any additional time incurred while your parcel is held at Customs.

How do I track the status of my order?
While your order is being packed and processed, you’ll see ‘In Progress’ in your Order History. Once your order has been shipped, we will send a shipping confirmation email to let you know. This will include a tracking link for your parcel, so you can follow its progress from us to you.

Can I make any changes to my order now it has been placed?
We start to process your order as soon as you place it so that you receive your items as quickly as possible. This means that if you change your mind or realise that you have made a mistake after placing your order, there is a very limited time-frame in which you can amend or cancel it. So, if you have any questions about an order you have placed or would like to make any changes, please contact the COS Customer Service team as soon as possible, who will be happy to help you.

If your order has already been shipped from our warehouse before you can cancel or change it, refuse the parcel and place a new order.

What payment options do you offer?
You can choose to pay using MasterCard, VISA, VISA Electron and PayPal.

Where do I add my discount code?
On the Shopping Bag page, you’ll see ‘Got a promotion code?’ under Order Summary. You can enter the code here before proceeding to Checkout. If the code isn’t working, please check it has been spelled correctly and no extra spaces or characters have been added. Please note that we don’t currently accept Gift Cards online.

Do you offer discounts or Black Friday deals?
Yes, we offer discounts during sale periods and one-off promotions. Please sign up to our newsletter to be the first to know.

What does ‘online exclusive’ mean?
Some pieces in our collection are only available to purchase online and are not available in any COS stores. These selected garments are highlighted with an ‘online exclusive’ marker on the product page. These products can only be purchased using the online checkout process. If you have difficulty placing an order for one of these items online, our Customer Service team may be able to assist.
