Are your bags authentic?
Yes! Here at Bella Bag we guarantee the authenticity of every item we sell or we will refund 100% of your money. The refund includes the purchase price and all related shipping cost. For more information on our authenticity standards, please visit: bellabag.com/authenticity
What forms of payment do you take?
We accept all major Credit Cards, Money Orders, Cashier checks and Paypal. For international customers we also accept wire transfers, however you would need to contact our office when placing the order, so we can provide you with additional information. For an extended payment plan, we also offer traditional layaway and Affirm. All methods of payment must successfully process prior to shipping your merchandise.
Can you tell me about your deferred payment programs?
We have two methods of deferred payment available. The first is traditional layaway available through Bella Bag directly. We break the cost of the item in 4 equal payments with a $14.95 processing fee for each payment. Items over $3500 are eligible for an extended layaway of 90-days. The cost will be spilt into 6 payments with a $14.95 fee per payment. To place an item on layaway, you will speak with one of our sales reps on the store and we will set your payments to auto-bill every two weeks via your credit card or Paypal. Once the item has been fully paid for, we will ship it to you!
The other option is through our website using third party partner called Affirm. You choose Affirm at checkout as your payment option and fill in some basic credit info. You will be given the option to pay off the item over 3, 6, or 12 months. Once you choose your plan, complete checkout as you normally would. With this method, we ship the bag to you immediately and you're responsible for paying back Affirm at the agreed upon terms.
Returns are accepted for layaway and Affirm items within 3 days of receipt of merchandise for exchange or store credit only. Shipping costs, customs/duties, and all layaway fees incurred are non-refundable or transferable. To accommodate exchanges or store credits, all original tags must remain attached. Items without security tags will not be accepted for exchange or store credit. Items marked as final sale are ineligible for exchange or store credit. Please carefully review all items prior to purchase. (Please see the "What is your return policy?" section) For layaway cancellations, the first payment is non-transferable and non-refundable. All associated fees are non-refundable. In the case of layaway cancellations due to non-payment, the customer is ineligible for a refund. Any and all missed payments will be charged an additional late fee of $14.95 per missed payment, unless otherwise agreed upon terms are met with the Bella Bag staff. If you have any additional questions regarding our layaway policy, please feel free to contact our team directly at 1-877-623-5522.
What are the shipping costs?
We charge domestic flat rate shipping costs, which we have found to greatly benefit our customers overall! International shipping costs are detailed upon checkout. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive free shipping on your order, a standard $15 flat fee will be deducted from the balance of your refund or credit.
Will I be charged sales tax?
We are legally bound to charge a 7% sales tax to customers with a shipping address in the state of Florida and 8% sales tax to customers with a shipping address in Georgia only.
I am an international customer, and I am very concerned about the additional costs of duties, customs, or taxes. What extra costs will I incur? Can my purchase be labeled with a lower value or as a "gift"?
We understand that paying taxes and any duties associated with a purchase as an international customer can be difficult and add costs to your package. However, in the United States, we are legally obligated by our Postal System to correctly label items at the correct value. What this means is that we are unable to incorrectly or “mistakenly” labels items as a gift or with a lower value. Packages will be marked as a “used item” and we will only indicate the purchase price on the exterior shipping label (this will not include the shipping costs or the original retail price). We hope you understand and find this information helpful.
What is your return policy?
Returns are accepted within 3 days of receipt of merchandise for a full refund or within 7 days of receipt for exchange or store credit. Return shipping cost will be the responsibility of the customer, with exception of a materially misrepresented or inaccurate item description. Shipping costs, customs/duties, and all layaway fees incurred are non-refundable or transferable. To accommodate refunds, exchanges or store credits, all original tags must remain attached to the item. Items without security tags or that have been marked as final sale are ineligible for a refund, exchange or store credit.

How do you price your merchandise?
All of our merchandise is priced based on a few key points: the age and condition of the item, the current availability and the market value of similar pre-owned items. If you have questions about our pricing on a specific piece, please email email@example.com or call our store team and we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Why are some items priced above retail?
There are a few reasons you may notice some items priced above the original retail:
- True Vintage, Limited Edition, or Runway items may be priced above their original brand MSRP due to the scarcity in the current market.
- Sometimes a current style will completely sell out at the brand boutiques, department stores and online which creates demand for the item, and increases the market price.
- Sometimes we encounter items with their original brand tags still attached, but the tags are several years old. With brand pricing increases, the current market value may be above the original attached tags.
If you have questions about our pricing on a specific piece, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our corporate office and we’d be happy to share additional information about the bag and pricing with you.
Can you source bags?
Yes! If you do not see your dream bag on our website or in our stores, you can speak with one of our buyers and request a bag to be sourced specifically for you. We do require a 25% deposit to secure the item, which is refundable if the sourcing time frame is not met. Most items can be sourced within 2 weeks, however as each item is unique, the timeline for your desired item will be discussed and explained in full by the buyer. Please contact us at email@example.com for any inquiries.
What is Bella Bag's buyback policy?
Items purchased from Bella Bag within the last year are eligible for our buyback program. Items will be purchased back at up to 60% of the original Bella Bag purchase price. You can choose Buyback from the dropdown menu at http://bellabag.com/sell-your-bag and provide us with the details of your original purchase.
