Payment Authorization

All purchases are subject to bank authorization prior to processing. Only authorized purchases will be processed and shipped.

Payment Authorization Holds

When placing an order using a credit card or debit card, two transactions will be posted to your account.

    1. The issuing bank for your payment card will place a hold on the funds in your account in the amount of your purchase when an order is authorized. This action reserves the funds for the pending charge
    2. You will subsequently be charged for the order which removes the funds from your account. The charge may vary from the amount of the authorization hold if the order is altered or cancelled prior to shipment

If an order is cancelled, the authorization hold will be removed by the issuing bank. For details on the removal of authorization holds, please contact the issuing bank’s customer service. Because this process is specific to each bank, we regret that we cannot provide assistance with the removal of authorization holds.

Maximum Purchase Policy

We must limit orders to six of any single item, with a maximum purchase of $5000 per customer. In addition, we must also limit orders to no more than three (3) orders per customer per day. Orders exceeding these limits are subject to cancellation. If you have any questions, please Message Us or call us at +33 6 71 59 70 68. and we will be happy to assist.

    • Item(s) are not available
    • Difficulty in processing payment information.
    • Cannot ship to the address provided
    • A duplicate order was placed
    • By customer request
    • Purchase limits have been exceeded

Pre-Order is the ability to reserve a product prior to the date on which it becomes available for immediate purchase on www.esteelauder.com. When you purchase a Pre-Order item, we will provide an estimated ship date for that item on your order confirmation email; this date is also visible in the Order History section of your account. Pre-Order items may ship separately from other items in your order, and you will receive a shipping confirmation email when the shipment occurs. If we are unable to ship your product by the estimated ship date, we will provide you with notice and you will have an option to cancel.

Estée Lauder does not charge your credit or debit card until your item(s) has shipped. However, prior to shipment, your debit or credit card statement may show an “authorization hold,” which may look similar to a deduction from your account. These funds have not been deducted but are instead being reserved within your account to ensure that your order can be processed. The authorization hold will typically last from three to seven days, depending on the policy of your bank or card issuer.
