    Klarna

    Klarna is a Swedish payment service provider that takes end-to-end responsibility for your payment. Klarna is the provider of smooth payments to more than 200,000 online stores. Over 90 million consumers worldwide have trusted Klarna to securely handle their payments.
    Pay later in 30 days is a form of credit which allows you to delay payment of your purchase by 30 days. Once your order is confirmed, you'll receive an email with payment instructions within two days from Klarna. You'll then have 30 days to try on your order and only pay when you’re happy. Complete the payment online, at your convenience, with no extra cost. You can pay via credit or debit card in Klarna.app or by logging into www.klarna.com/uk .
    To use Pay later in 30 days you must be at least 18. Whilst this option is widely promoted, Pay later in 30 days is subject to your financial circumstances. When choosing Pay later in 30 days, our assessment will not affect your credit rating.
    Klarna is unique and offers Pay later in 30 days based on a number of factors such as the order value, previous order history and item availability. If you are 18 or over, you can improve your chances of being offered Pay later in 30 days by ensuring you provide your full name, accurate address details and arrange shipping to your registered billing address. All orders are assessed individually. Just because you have been accepted for Pay later in 30 days before does not mean it will be offered for every order. In turn, if your application for Pay later in 30 days is denied, it does not mean it will be denied for future orders.
    Klarna may run so-called unrecorded enquiries (or soft credit searches) that do not affect credit scoring and are only visible to you and Klarna, but not visible to other lenders. Neither Klarna nor Cult Beauty run credit searches against you that could impact your credit rating.
    Although Pay later in 30 days is widely promoted it is not always universally available. The Pay later in 30 days method is automatically generated by algorithms that are dependent upon a number of factors including amount of order, the online store, previous order history and item availability. Alternatively, you are able to complete your order by paying by credit or debit card at the checkout.
    You can pay with debit or credit card immediately in the checkout or take advantage of our Pay later in 30 days payment option, where you can pay for the goods once you have received them via credit card or debit card. You can always monitor your outstanding payments in the Klarna app.
    As soon as Cult Beauty have accepted your cancellation/return, then Klarna will cancel the statement or refund your payment. The return will be reflected in the Klarna app immediately.

    Payment is due 30 days after the item is shipped. To help you pay on time, we'll alert you two days before payment is due – you'll receive a push notification from the Klarna app or email reminders to pay – and, if very late, we’ll also send you a text or letter, too. You will not be charged fees or interest for late and/or missed repayment(s). Your credit score will not be impacted by using Klarna’s ‘Pay later in 30 days’ product even if you have failed to pay on time. If you fail to pay on time, you will be in default, and may be unable to use Klarna’s services in the future. If you do not pay for your purchase, Klarna may engage with an external debt collection agency to collect on our behalf. Debt collection agencies are used as a last resort.


    If you have chosen to Pay later in 30 days, Klarna will send you an email with further details on how to pay. Your email will contain a link to Klarna where you can settle your payment with your credit or debit card. You are always able to view payments instructions in the Klarna app.
    If you want to make a purchase with Klarna you need to provide your name, address and email address. For some orders you may need to provide your mobile number or date of birth, too. All information will be sent to your email address, including payment reminders and links to your online statements. It's very important that you give us the correct details, as otherwise you will not receive the payment information.
    Payment information is processed securely by Klarna. No card details are transferred to or held by Cult Beauty. All transactions take place via connections secured with the latest industry standard security protocols.
    You can pay for your order at any point after you receive the email from Klarna with the details of your payment on. Just follow the instructions on this email or in the Klarna app to pay for your order.
    If you pay by card, Cult Beauty will confirm your order right away. If paying by Pay later in 30 days, Klarna will send you a payment confirmation to the email address that you have used for your order. If you have made a payment but not received the payment confirmation, you can always check the status of your order and payments by logging in to the Klarna app or www.klarna.com /uk.
    Once Cult Beauty has received the return (partial or full) and you have received their confirmation of this, an updated statement will be sent to you by Klarna if you've made a partial return. With a full return, your statement will be closed. You are always able to monitor the status of your order in the Klarna app.
    You have 30 days to pay, so you don’t need to pay right away. If your due date is near and there is no sign of your goods, please call Cult Beauty to check on delivery. You can also contact Klarna’s Customer Service so that we can postpone the due date on your payment or put the order on hold in the Klarna app while you wait for the goods to arrive.
    As soon as the store has registered your cancellation or your return, the refund will be processed within 5 business days.
    If you have paid for your order with a card, the refund will be made back to the same card. If you have not paid the statement yet, then the refund will reduce the statement or cancel it completely.
    You can log in the Klarna app or at www.klarna.com/uk, where you will find all of your orders and payment schedule information.
    Visit Klarna app Klarna’s Customer Service page for a full list of FAQs, live chat and telephone options.

    Website

    As you will see, Cult Beauty moved onto the THG platform this weekend. The reasons for doing this so quickly post joining the THG family are that our old site - which had remained pretty much unchanged since we designed it in 2012 - was no longer capable of servicing the volume of customers we have now without falling over, it was horrible for our teams to run in the background and, most importantly, it didn’t allow for all the future innovation we have planned. It didn’t even support a – much requested - mobile app (which is now coming very soon).

    The site you see now is an ‘out of the box’ design because we needed to upgrade our platform quickly before our 2021 Advent Calendar launch and the rest of the holiday period; our old platform would have stopped working which we didn’t want for our customers again. We are continuing to fine tune the current site to give the best Cult Beauty experience possible, please contact Customer Service if these are affecting you directly and our team will do everything they can to help.

    For our International Customers, we’re delighted to finally offer you the choice to shop in your local currency (AED, AUD, CHF, CNY, EUR, HKD, ILS, JPY, RUB, SAR, SGD, USD). You’ll soon be able to choose from a greater selection of couriers, offering you faster delivery. For orders destined outside of Europe, the product prices will now conform to our brands’ currency-led RRPs. We will continue to offer our coveted Goody Bags, Edit Boxes, gifts with purchase, promotions and, of course, first-to-market brand launches worldwide, to be the first to know please sign-up to our emails.

    The Cult Beauty team is still here, our passion and obsession with truffle-hunting the coolest brands in the world still drives our every waking thought. I invite you to come with us on this journey, with your feedback, our imagination, new tech capabilities and our combined love of the best beauty products in the business, we are going to create something really special in the future.

    Should you wish to share any feedback about our website, please send it to our Customer Service Team.

    Please refer to our Terms and Conditions page.
    If you’re having problems accessing the checkout or any part of our website, then please get in contact with our Customer Service team straight away via the 'Still need help?' section (below) so we can fix this for you.
