Placing an order
What is 3DS2 and why am I being asked for additional details when checking out?
From 14th September 2019 all online businesses will require customers to provide a second level of authentication when processing payments online with the aim to reduce cybercrime and provide added security to online shopping. So next time you are shopping with us, you might be prompted to input additional information such as a password, a one-time passcode or fingerprint if you are shopping on your smartphone.
Under the revised Payment Services Directive (PSD) which is a European directive that creates a more open, competitive and secure payments landscape across Europe, you will need to provide two out of three authentication elements when paying online, so something you know like a password, something you own like your phone and something you are like a fingerprint. You will see an additional step in your checkout experience allowing your card issues or bank to check who you are. In some cases, they may not need authentication due to exemptions.
What currency can I pay in?
Both GBP & US Dollar currencies are accepted on LuluGuinness.com.
For UK, Europe and Rest Of World (excluding USA & Canada) orders should be placed in GBP.
If ordering from the USA or Canada please select the country toggle button in the top left corner of the website to switch currencies. This currency selection is only available to customers who have a billing and delivery address in the USA or Canada.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit and debit cards including American Express and Maestro. We also accept payment through PayPal and ApplePay.
Online payments are taken securely using the leading payment gateway Adyen. Your credit card details will not be stored by Lulu Guinness Ltd.
We cannot accept cash or cheques on delivery.
Do you use 3D Secure?
We have introduced MasterCard® SecureCode and Verified by Visa to give you even more confidence in shopping with Lulu Guinness.
This service protects your existing card against unauthorised use by prompting you for a private password each time you shop with us. To use this service, simply register with your bank first or other organisation that issued your card.
On registering your card, you will be prompted for your 3D Secure password at checkout. Please note this is not your Lulu Guinness account password and Lulu Guinness will not hold any information on this password.
Do I need to set-up an online account to place an order?

How do I care for my Lulu Guinness handbag?
The Lulu Guinness handbag collection has been specifically designed to include many unique fabrics. Because the fabric has been specifically created, natural variations and textures may occur. Incidental marks, tonal changes and/or textural variations on leather should not be considered as imperfections. They are characteristic of the skillfully tanned skins, which give our bags their luxurious appearance.
Bags that include beads, ribbons, small plastic parts and/or other delicate trims should not be worn against delicate clothing. They are not suitable for children. We strongly recommend that you treat your bag delicately. Avoid getting your bag wet or over exposing to direct light and heat. Prints, dyed fabrics and leathers are not guaranteed to be colourfast. Always take care and avoid wearing with light colours to prevent colour transfer. If the accessory has a frame it should be utilised gently to maintain its original shape and function.
How do I find an item on your website?
You can browser through the various categories listed in our top navigation menu. Alternatively, if you know the name and/or SKU (product code) of the item you are looking for you can type this into the search box in the top right hand corner of the website.
