Ground Shipping & Handling Times to the 48 States

This map shows the estimated days until delivery, from the date you place your order to the date it’s brought into your store. This includes handling time and UPS shipping time, in business days. Remember to take holidays into account! You will receive a tracking number for all orders.

Most orders ship within one business day. Larger orders, orders with large items, or orders with a large number of multiple SKUs may take up to 2 business days to leave our warehouse.

Delivery Information

Most frequent questions and answers

Standard shipping is free on orders over $50. Orders under $50 will be charged for shipping, calculated for your address. Shipping times to the United States are estimated to be between 2 and 5 business days.

Shipping times to the United States are estimated to be between 2 and 5 working days. During sale and busy periods, we do advise 5 to 6 working days to give the team a little bit of time to catch up.

When your order leaves us, a second email is generated to confirm this – if you don’t receive an email within 4 working days, please call the crew on 1-800-888-8888 or email us at

You can track your order using the UPS Package tracker at

We primarily use UPS and USPS for all retail orders. Additional shipping methods are available for wholesale/bulk orders if requested during checkout.

Please be assured that, whilst the delivery charge is printed on each invoice we send, you will only ever be charged postage once for your complete order. You can check this on your account at or with internet banking.

If your order left us under the Standard Service and has not been shipped within 2 – 5 working days (or 5 to 6 working days at peak times such as Sale and Christmas) we must allow 14 working days from dispatch for delivery.

Setting up an account is really easy and only takes a few minutes. You’ll need to give us your name and address details and then create a password, which you can use to access your account at a later date. With an account you can check the progress of an order, change your details and save your payment details, which will speed things up the next time you order. Alternatively, if you’d prefer not to create an account, you can select “Continue as guest” instead. You’ll still need to enter your name, address, email and payment information, but these won’t be stored. You won’t be able to track your order if you select this option though.

To view wholesale pricing on all items, you will need to submit a wholesaler account request form and provide business information including Name, Type of Business, and Wholesale ID number.

By logging in to your account using your email address and password, you will be able to access your account details. You will also have the option to modify your delivery addresses stored against your account but unfortunately, we aren’t able to change the delivery address on an active order, so please ensure you select the right details.

No problem – all you need to do is grab a password reminder. You can find this at the ‘Login/My Account’ section of the site. Simply click on the ‘Forgotten your password?’ link and we’ll email it over to you.

This happens after 3 unsuccessful login attempts. Your password is case sensitive, so please bear this in mind when entering your details. If you do enter an incorrect password on more than 3 occasions, your account will be suspended automatically as a security measure. To resolve this, all you need to do is let us know via email or phone (1-800 585 0178) and we can unlock your account and resend your password reminder over to your registered email address. Be assured that the crew member you deal with does not have access to your password details.

Placing An Order

Most frequent questions and answers

We accept the following cards online or you can check out using PayPal or Amazon:

AMEX, Diners and Discover cards.

Sadly, we’re not able to accept Visa Electron, Solo or Laser.

You can redeem a discount when you’re in the Shopping Bag by entering your promotional code (or ‘Quote Ref’) in the box provided. You can only use one promotional code per order.

Voucher codes are set to expire after a certain time, so it might be that you’re using an outdated code. Most of our vouchers are for a single use and are case sensitive. They also cannot be used during Sale Periods, and you can’t use more than one on a single order.

This is simple to fix – as long as the code was valid at the time of ordering, all you need to do is wait until you receive the parcel, then email us with the code and your order number. We’ll then refund the amount back to you.

We can’t add to orders, but if you call the crew on 1-800 585 0178 within a few hours of your original order, they’ll put through another one without the postage charge for you. Please note that they will need your card details.

Unfortunately, we’re not able to split a single order. A quick fix for this is to give the crew a call on 1-800 585 0178 – they can place a new order for you without charging extra delivery.

Unfortunately our website does not currently allow you to change or cancel anything yourself – give us a call as soon as you can on 1-800 585 0178 and we’ll do our best to help you. You are advised not to email your request, as we only have a limited amount of time to alter orders and we may not reach your request in time this way.

If you paid for your order by credit or debit card then we won’t take any money from you until it has been dispatched from our warehouse. Payments made through PayPal are usually taken from your account instantly.

If there’s something on the website you really love but the stock isn’t due for a few more weeks, you can pre-order it before it arrives in our warehouse. Once you’ve selected a color and size, you’ll see the expected delivery date displayed above the “add to bag” button. You may find that an item is on Backorder, which means that the product has been delayed. If this is the case, you’ll see the message “Order now, available from dd/mm/yyy”.

We’re always more than happy to place orders over the phone for you – just call the crew on 1-800 585 0178. We’ll be in the office between (UK – GMT):

8.30 to 6.00 Monday to Friday

9.00 to 5.00 Saturday

10.00 to 4.00 Bank Holidays

(US – EST)

Monday to Friday: 3:30am – 1pm

Saturday: 4am – 12pm

UK Bank Holidays: 5am – 11am

Please note that from time to time we may close the lines for training purposes and during the first day of the online End of Season sale.

Goods are not allocated to you until order confirmation is sent to you – adding items to your shopping basket does not reserve them.

Your Security Code is just a little extra security for online and phone transactions. This number can be located on the signature strip on the back on your card – we only require the last 3 digits of this number.

We will not decline transactions at checkout, only authorise the amounts – if your bank does decline, please contact them directly so they can rectify this for you. Please be advised that the authorised amount will show on your account for around 7 working days, regardless of a successful transaction being made. This amount has not been debited, it has only been ring-fenced from your available balance.

This means that the details you’ve given us do not match the details your bank has for you – please ensure your billing address matches your statement address exactly. Rather than attempt multiple transactions online, it’s best to give our Customer Service Centre a call on 1-800 585 0178, who will be happy to place your order over the phone.

Additional checks are run on all orders with certain criteria, for your safety as well as ours. The call to complete this check will be very brief and we will never ask for your full card details. Please be aware that if your order has been flagged for a security check and you do not contact us within 4 days your order will be cancelled.

Once your order’s gone through, you should receive an email with an order number. If you don’t receive an email, just double check that you’ve spelt your email address correctly. If you’ve checked and you’re still unsure, give our Customer Service Centre a call on 1-800 585 0178

As we ship from Fat Base here in the UK, you wouldn’t pay Customs and Import inside the European Union. However, outside the Union, charges may apply when the goods reach their destination. We don’t have any control over the amounts charged. Please note that if your order is over a certain weight, we may have to split the delivery into more than one parcel resulting in more than one charge – unfortunately this is beyond our control.

Product Information

Most frequent questions and answers
We follow very strict responsible sourcing guidelines for the sourcing of all our materials and we regularly monitor our suppliers carefully to ensure they adhere to these high standards. We’ve recently joined the PETA list of retailers that have committed to keep down out of their future collections, and can confirm that from summer 2017 we no longer utilise down and feathers in the production of any of our products.

Refunds and Exchanges

Most frequent questions and answers

We want you to love everything about your new Golden Sun items! However, if you are not delighted with your purchases it’s not a problem, we are happy for you to return them to us with your returns form within 30 days from receipt for full price items and 15 days for items bought during Sale by post to:

Golden Sun International LLC – P.O. Box 1332 – Bastrop, TX 78602

Please complete the original FatFace returns form included with your order to ensure a fast refund. Add an address label to your parcel ensuring it covers the original delivery information and take it to your local Mailing Office. If possible, please request a proof of shipping certificate; this will ensure you can request a full refund even if your return is lost in the post.

Please allow up to 21 days for returns to be processed. Due to health and hygiene reasons we are unable to accept returned underwear, earrings, unless faulty. Swimwear is only returnable if unworn and the hygiene strip is in place.

Returns take around 2 weeks to be received and processed. The longest they should take is 21 days, so if you haven’t heard from us within that time, please let the Customer Service Centre have a copy of your proof of postage and they’ll look after everything for you.
Not to worry – just let the crew know at and they’ll send you your order number and all the details you’ll need.
We no longer offer exchanges, so we’ve refunded your order for you. The best thing for you to do is to re-order the garment in the color and size you’re after.

Email, and include:

  • A digital photo of the damage, if possible* (for damaged items)
  • Order number
  • Item number
  • Your preference for a replacement, refund, or store credit

*If sending a digital photo is very inconvenient, we can mail you a pre-paid shipping label to return the item. The replacement/refund will then be issued after we have received the damaged item.

If you do send photos, keep all packing materials for damaged items just in case we still need them returned. If a return is required, Golden Sun International will pay return shipping for damaged items.

Our aim is to delight customers, however sometimes things do go wrong. If this is the case we want to know about it so that we can put it right for you and learn from our mistakes so it can’t happen again.

Gifts - Wrapping & Returns

Most frequent questions and answers
We’d love to be able to offer a Gift Wrapping service, but we don’t have the facilities to do this right now. If you send a delivery directly to another recipient, it will have the tags attached and the invoice enclosed.

As long as the tags are still attached and the kit is current season, you’re very welcome to return the item to us at the address below:

Returns Crew – Golden Sun International – P.O. Box 1332 Bastrop, TX 78602
