This usually happens for two reasons: the e-mail address and/or the password was entered incorrectly.
If you have entered your e-mail address incorrectly when creating an account, you won’t receive a confirmation e-mail and consequently, your correct details will not be recognised next time you try to sign in.
If you think this might be the case, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on Live Chat with your name and e-mail and we will solve the problem for you. We may ask for some basic details to confirm your identity and to keep customer records safe.
If you have forgotten your password click the “forgotten password” link in the “login” section to have your password e-mailed to you.

Absolutely. All payments are processed using Paypal, a leading online secure payment gateway. All transactions are dealt with on Paypal’s secure site.

We will never contact you by email for such details.What payment methods do you accept?

VAT does not apply to children’s clothing in the UK or the rest of the EU. VAT is also not applicable to countries outside the EU. However, please check if you are liable to pay duty at customs if living outside the EU. Lori Lou Ltd cannot take responsibility for duty fees incurred on overseas orders. We recommend contacting your local customs office for more information.What is a billing address?
Your “billing address” is the address that your bank or credit card provider sends your bills or monthly statements to.
The billing name and address appear on the monthly credit card statement. If you only conduct your credit card billing via the internet, then this will be the address you entered when you registered with your online bank.
Your bank needs this information to be correct as a security measure. When we process your order and charge your card, your bank asks us to verify the address that your card is registered to in order to make sure it really is you. (This is instead of entering your PIN)What is the CVV?
The CVV (sometimes called the CVD or CVV2) is a feature to give you increased protection against credit card fraud online.
The CVV is the last 3 numbers printed on the signature strip on the back of the credit card.
The CVV or Security Code is the last 4 numbers printed on the front of the card above the card account number.Why has my card been declined?
If your Credit Card has been declined it can be for a number of reasons:
- You have written a number wrong.
- You have written the date or security code (CVV) wrong.
- The name and address does not match the address the Bank has on file for you.
- Your Bank have refused it for security reasons.
- There are not enough funds to cover the payment.
If you contact your Credit Card Provider or Bank they will tell you why they have declined it.Can I change my address after placing the order?
Please let us know immediately if you have made a mistake with your address so we are able to change it for you. Once your order has been dispatched, we cannot redirect it to a different address.
