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.

Love the clothes.. but the sizing?!!
I’m a size small or xs and both have been too small for me so chose their “medium” - fit perfectly for their activewear but got some other pants and the medium wouldn’t even stay on me it was so big. This inconsistency is shocking
Delivery so slow compared to other retailers. Don't bother paying for express!
Shopping easy and range good. But delivery during pandemic is terrible. Ordered from Cotton On, Myer, Lovista and JBHiFi all on same day. Express postage on all orders. 5 days later and cotton on haven't even dispatched yet, the only way to contact is via online chat. All other parcels were received within 3 days.
Don't pay for express shipping
I have made two orders with Cotton On online and both times I paid for express shipping just for it to be really late. My latest order should have been delivered today but I didn't even get a shipping confirmation or tracking number. After contacting their live chat, someone was able to give me a tracking number but it hasnt even been loaded into Couriers Please system so who knows where it is or when it will arrive. I'm pretty annoyed with myself for ordering again online, hopefully I won't forget next time I have the urge to buy cheap bad quality clothes.
Good but some flaws
Cotton on sells some really nice things, but it’s a little messy eg. My pleated skirt had some loose thread, and the shipping takes a while.
"couriers please" needs to go.
I ordered two packages one arrived today the other not here yet. The one I just received came as I was in the living room so I could see it being delivered. This man walked not even up the steps of my house and threw my package at my door. I understand it is just clothes but that is horrible... they also say my second package isn meant to arrive AND I PAY EXPRESS SHIPPING but when I search it on "couriers please" website its changed for in another 3 days. Seriously, update your customers on these things.
Express Shipping is anything BUT express.
I used to LOVE cotton on. Honestly, whenever I needed new clothes, stationary, active wear or undies they're always the first place I'd look. Its such a shame that the online store is so poorly handled, specifically the timing with which you receive an order. On several occasions now I've paid for express shipping & been given a delivery date only to have my order turn up well over a week later, whats the point in even offering express if you can't follow through on the promise of it being here sooner than if i hadn't paid any extra at all? I'v...e often gone into the store to try and avoid this but they NEVER seem to have the same stock in store or even have anything remotely similar to what I'm looking for & when you ask the staff for assistance, they look at you like you're speaking jibberish. The customer service team never seems to be overly enthusiastic about helping either, often talking to you like you were born yesterday. Not very helpful & leaves me feeling like it's time to find another cheap, generic & vaguely fashionable place to shop. Disappointing.
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.

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.
Express shipping makes NO DIFFERENCE
I payed extra for express shipping and still did not arrive till the following week. I ordered on a Monday, and it was supposed to take 2-3 business days, but instead took 6 business days. Extremely disappointed.
Love cotton on
Cotton on is one of my favourite stores their clothes are always amazing. The clothes are good quality great customer service and they have clothes for all shapes and sizes.
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 !
No extend sizes available in the store. If I found one, you are lucky. That probably is the only one in Aus. Why are they producing it? Save for themselves to wear, not for sale?
