Never cancelled my afterpay payments after refund, have emailed twice no response
I bought 10 items online, 6 were out of stock. I paid through afterpay, and was emailed saying the payments would be refunded. Every other place I’ve paid from after pay shows that it’s a cancelled payment or partially refunded so they STOP taking money for items you’ve returned/didn’t get. They took every single payment out without refunding. I only got less than half my order. I have emailed twice. The first time, I received and email saying my enquiry was ‘closed because I didn’t respond’ yet, they never even sent me an email to respond to. I am yet two receive a response to my second email which was over a week ago. Disgusting customer service. Do not buy from them online, unless you want your money stolen.
Still waiting on a refund over 3 months
I would never purchase from this online store. I purchased items over 3 months ago whilst in lockdown. The sizing wasn’t right so I returned through the post and repurchased. I was notified by Cotton On the goods were returned and I would be refunded within 10 working days. This was back in October 2021. The only option to correspond with this appalling company is via Facebook through messenger. After numerous messages back and forth I was told that there was a backlog due to Covid. Then after patiently waiting months, now they do not reply to my messages. So they have my items back which I paid for and no resolution. Disgusting customer service
Do not order online from Ceres Life (Cotton On)
Terrible delivery time, even worse return time. Since my return was received, it is almost 4 weeks later and the refund has not been processed. I am advised it has been received, but please allow 7-14 days for our team to contact you ‘once warehouse staff have come across it’. No other retailer has such poor customer service even during the busiest of times. Completely unacceptable.
Awful customer service
Norwood store. Returned product purchased with gift card. Had receipt etc. First told couldn't get a refund and had to purchase something today. Finally said could only refund to gift card and had none in stock so I would have to come back to store on another day. I insisted on refund for click and collect item was picking up. When realised I was serious about walking away they finally managed to do a cash refund and I repurchased click and collect item on credit card. Very unpleasant shopping experience. Wont be returning.
Shocking customer service.
Bought my daughter a pair of bathers for Xmas. They came with no plastic protector. Too small. Returned day after Boxing Day with tags attached. Rude manager was very dismissive and said no protector no exchange. Went to purchase another pair and they had no protector either which I showed the Manager who just to be a joke refused to sell them to me. Will NEVER go back.

Cotton on Kids - Carindale - A+++
We have had such positive experiences with this store. We’ve never had a bad experience, but recently they’ve been superb. I bought a heap of clothes online (Covid19) and had to return the shorts as they were a bit big on my lanky son. The lady at the counter could not have been more helpful. I then realised they have a great range of Christmas Pyjamas - fun and good fabric. I went and selected some items and the sales lady was friendly putting through the purchases and suggesting where I might find themed items I haven’t seen in shops (no...t available through Cotton On). I then wanted an item not in the store, so the lady instantly arranged free delivery. We hadn’t been able to find one item in the desired size, so I bought a size down (staff volunteered to search reserves, but no luck). I realised at home it wouldn’t be suitable, so hubby returned it. Again no issue, and they’ll send this one item out in the correct size with free postage (again). The staff were a delight. Nothing was too much trouble. Due to health issues I had to return items to four stores - Cotton On and Target were fantastic. Big W a pain, whilst Coles -100. We’ll definitely be back to Cotton On Kids for their range, prices, and lovely staff.
Track pants for men
The mens clothes supplied were marked large but the were small so I gave them to the kids ordered a second set the clothes turned and they had a couple of hole's in them.
I then contacted customer service, no joy it was a voice message, I the tried on line, it was like watching paint dry as they must have been taking numerous chats at the same time.
So here I am leaving feed back give them a miss there customer service leaves a lot to be desired.
An absolute muck around
I ordered several items and after they arrived I returned the items immediately on the 21/04 that didn't fit via the print out return postage slip. After close to 2 months of ordering items and waiting hours on the live chat (only for it to fail each time and return me to the back of the queue), emailing customer service, contacting the store and contacting them on messenger, my refund has finally begun the return process although this will take up to 5 business days to process. I was told by the store to keep trying the live chat, so this is ...what I did and finally had a response but was not told sorry for the muck around or anything instead I was told that this was just a mistake in their system. Not good enough. And after explaining how frustrated I was, they offered me free shipping for next time I make a purchase online. I WILL NEVER AGAIN. What an absolute joke.

Sent wrong item and ticket closed with no response
I ordered several items online on April 29 which were delivered May 5. One item was incorrect- I ordered a cat pen I really wanted and they sent a different one so I emailed asking for the correct one or a refund and it’s now weeks later and still no response and they closed the ticket without contacting me at all. I’m just bummed because I normally love typo and cotton on and I really wanted that cat pen! To not even get a response or a “sorry” is really disappointing.

Returned items not refunded
I returned several items 3 weeks ago. Have not received a refund. Spent 4.5 hours over 3 days trying to access online chat. Finally got on. No help whatsoever. Disgusting
2 weeks since returned items and still no refund!!!
It’s been 2 weeks since i returned the items that didn’t fit and I still haven’t got the refund. Cotton on customer service sends you millions of emails for you to review their items quality etc but they don’t consider reimbursing their clients a priority!!!!
Never got my money back from a return
I returned an item 2 weeks ago by shipping it back to cotton and I got an email saying it arrived. However I have still not got my money back after over 2 weeks. they just ignore my emails saying that they have a lot of questions to answer but it should not take over 2 weeks to answer mine. I am so annoyed that I basically paid for something I don’t even have.

The lady in store said you should definitely buy that! It’s on sale. Only $10. They then charged me $24.99 and when I contacted them online they would not refund me. I would need to go in store and chat to them. Which would cost me even more money in car maintenance petrol parking and time. I feel very disappointed and won’t show there again.
Love products and lovely staff
Great range and deals! Product I had for a few months broke and I could exchange it easily without much hassle at all (and I was so sure that they wouldn’t give me anything like normal stores)
mount barker manager is rude, sizing is not standard through their clothes
sometimes I am a size M to XL so when I have bought online , I have had to return or exchange due to wrong sizing, And the manager at mount barker is very rude, I will not be shopping there again.
Questions & Answers
Still haven't received the tracking number after purchase it and been almost 3 weeks now , very disappointed!!!!!!
Online shopping with Cotton On is ok if u choose to pick up in shop. I am still wondering why Cotton On is still using country’s worst shipping company - Courier xxxxxx!
The driver never came to your home for delivery but they did update their online status as “attempt to deliver but not at home”! Also they said they left the card for me but they did not ! What a ridiculous service!!! I did give instruction to leave my order at my front door but they took my order back to their warehouse ‘
I am so frustrated to have Courier pls to deliver my order as I had few horrible experiences with them. This time, again, I really don’t know how long can I take my order back or it would never come ?
Cotton On Admin/Customer device: Please take all your customers review seriously and consider to change your courier partnership to boost your competitiveness !
