You warrant that you are authorized to use the credit, paypal account or debit card you are using to order from us and you have sufficient funds. When you place an order with us you represent and agree that the goods you order are retail purchases and not for commercial resale.
If there are any changes to the personal information you supply to us, including, but not limited to, your name or address, it is your responsibility to let us know as soon as possible to avoid misdirected orders.
We do not authorize the purchase of our merchandise for resale purposes. To enforce this policy, we may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors. We also reserve the right to cease doing business with those customers violating this policy. We do not authorize more than one promotional code (discount) per order, and we reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that violate this policy.
The stated delivery period within which you will receive your order is approximate. Goods will be sent to the address you specify in your order. If you are ordering more than one item, your goods may be sent to you in installments. Please wait 7 days before contacting our inquiries team if all your items are not together as your goods may arrive on separate days.
Provided the items you order from us are in stock, we aim to deliver them to the address you specify within 4 - 10 business days of dispatch from our warehouse in the UK. Please be aware that we do not have an express delivery option unless otherwise indicated when you order goods from us.
Shipping and Handling
Free shipping on all orders of $100 or more. Our standard shipping and handling charge for orders under $100 is $6.95 on each order you place (unless a promotion applies). Once dispatched you will be able to track your order online. A tracking number will be emailed to you once your parcel has reached our couriers.
If you order an item that is backordered, we will so advise you and give you our best estimate of the time frame in which the item will be available. If the item is not expected to be available within thirty (30) days, you will be offered the option to cancel your order for the item. If the item is expected to be available within thirty (30) days but you nevertheless wish to cancel your order for the item you, of course, may do so, in accordance with our cancellation policy.
Delivery to a different address
You may send your order to a different address other than your billing address if you wish. If you want to take advantage of this facility, simply click "Add new address" on the checkout page and follow the instructions given. Please note you can only send items from a single order to one address, whether it is the billing address or an alternate. Multi address delivery for single orders is not available.
If you haven't received an item that appears on your packing slip(s), please inquire about it as soon as possible. We'll assume that all the items have been successfully delivered unless we hear from you within thirty (30) days of the original order date.
You can use one of the following payment options to order from us:-
By phone with your credit card
You can call on our toll free payment line on 1-877-407-4675 - Simply Be accepts most major credit/debit cards
- American Express
All cardholders who place an order with us are subject to appropriate validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If your card issuer refuses to authorize the payment to us, we may delay or cancel your order without liability
Our payment line is open 7am-11pm 7 days a week. You'll need a few details from your card – specifically the card type, card number, expiry date and Card Verification Number*.
*Your Card Verification Number is also known as the Card Verification Value [CVV] - it's a unique security code that is printed on your card for extra security. Your CVV code isn't printed on receipts, so it is difficult for anyone other than a genuine cardholder to know it. On some credit cards there is a numeric code printed on the signature strip on the reverse of the card, and the last three digits of this numeric code is the CVV code. On other credit cards the CVV may be four digits and printed in a location on the front of your card.
By mail with your debit or credit card
Copy the numbers from the center of your card into the boxes on your payment slip or order form. Please do NOT write your Card Verification Number onto any form. Fully complete the rest of the form and return to us.
For your own protection, never send cash through the mail.
We also accept payment via the Simply Be 'Be Card'. For further information click here
Please note that U.S. import law may impose duties and/or fees for certain shipments. These duties and fees are not included in the price of the order and, should they be levied, are the responsibility of our customers. However, if you incur such charges, please contact our customer services team who will be happy to arrange a refund.
If we are required to charge you state or local sales taxes, these will be added at the time of your order.

Simply attach the SmartLabel™ found on the packing slip to the front of your parcel and either drop it in a mailbox, give it to your postal carrier or drop it off at the Post Office. Please note we cannot accept returns sent by any other method. Original shipping fees are non-refundable. If you have lost or have a damaged SmartLabel™ please contact our inquiries team to arrange a replacement.
Every parcel we send out includes a packing slip, which lists its contents. When returning an item or items, please fill in, detach and send back to us the return section of the packing slip, following the 'How to Return an Item' instructions. It's important that you return this, or a copy, with your return, as this information will help us to improve our quality control when we examine the returned goods, as well as facilitate a swift refund. If you don't have your return section, simply write on a piece of paper the item number, your reason for returning and your name, address and make sure you enclose it with the goods.
The return will be processed once your goods are received into our UK warehouse. It may take 3-5 working days for the credit to appear on your payment method after the goods have been processed.
Ordering replacement goods
Unfortunately we cannot process exchanges with your return documentation. If you would like a replacement this needs to be processed as a separate order. Simply go online to www.simplybe.com or call our enquiries team.
Order Cancellation or Change
If you'd like to cancel items please call our customer service number at 1-877-407-4675 as soon as possible, our contact center is open from 7am until 11pm 7 days a week Eastern Standard Time. Unfortunately, it is not possible to cancel orders through the Website. We’ll do what we can to accommodate your request, but please bear in mind that our order fulfillment and shipping systems are designed to get orders on their way quickly and efficiently.

They will, however, be subject to our normal return policy described above should you wish to return them.
Please note:: If you cancel an item that qualified you for a promotion or special discount, you may no longer receive that discount or promotion.

Under California Civil Code § 1798.83, a California resident with whom Simply Be has an established relationship has the right to request certain information concerning the types of personal information Simply Be has shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and the identities of those third parties, within the immediately preceding calendar year (i.e., requests made in 2009 will receive information regarding information shared in 2008), subject to certain exceptions. All requests for such information must be in writing and sent by mail to: Simply Be, 777 South State Road 7, Margate, Florida, USA, 33068 or by email to: email@example.com
This same California law permits Simply Be™ to provide you, in response to your written request, with a cost-free means to choose not to have your information shared rather than providing the above described information. You may exercise that choice by any of the means described under "Sharing with Other Companies" above.

If unauthorized charges (as determined by your card issuer) are made on your credit or debit card as a result of purchases made on the Website utilizing our secure servers, Simply Be™ will reimburse you for up to $50 of any amounts you are required to pay by the card issuer. Also, under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your credit card provider cannot hold you liable for more than $50 of unauthorized charges on a credit card. Your liability for unauthorized use of a debit card may be higher, but many debit card issuers voluntarily apply the $50 limit to their cards as well. You need to determine for yourself whether your debit card issuer has such a policy.
It is important to remember that in the event of unauthorized use of your credit or debit card, you must promptly notify the card issuer pursuant to its reporting rules and procedures.
The website uses "cookies" and "pixel tags" to allow us to understand how customers use the site and to enhance or personalize your browsing and shopping experience. A cookie is a small data file that can be stored on your computer. They allow a website to recognize users when they return to a site.
Pixel Tags are small strings of HTML code that are placed in a Web page. They are sometimes called "clear GIFs" (Graphics Interchange Format) or "Web Beacons." Pixel Tags are most often used in conjunction with cookies and paid search listings.
Because a Pixel Tag is only 1 pixel high by 1 pixel wide, it appears invisible on your computer screen. If Pixel Tags were made larger (e.g., 100 pixels high by 100 pixels wide), it would take much longer for your Web page to load and would clutter up the page that you have requested.
You can set your browser not to accept cookies or to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide whether or not to accept it. However, if you do not accept cookies, some features of the Website will not function properly and may not be available.
We collect non-personal information about how users navigate through the Website. We may aggregate this information to improve our site, and we may share this information with our affiliates or other outside companies. This aggregated information does not include individual names or personal data, so it does not identify you or any other customer.
