HAUTE SKIN pricing & payment
Why is HAUTE SKIN pricing special?
It's down to our unique business model. At HAUTE SKIN, you are shopping for luxury designer handbags. Prices are determined by HAUTE SKIN team and depend on the type and rareness of the leather used for each particular item. So the price of the same model may vary depending on where leather came from and your location. That's also why placing an item in your shopping bag or Wishlist won't reserve it at a particular price.
Which currencies can I shop in?
This is determined by your shipping destination and will be displayed at checkout before completing your purchase. If your local currency is unavailable, your order will be charged in USD for a competitive exchange rate.
When will my card be charged?
If you pay by debit card or PayPal, HAUTE SKIN will take payment at the point your order is placed on our site. If you pay by credit card, full payment is usually taken once your order is ready for shipping, but your bank or card issuer may reserve the order amount in your account immediately.
What payment methods do you accept?
- American Express
- Apple Pay
We only accept installments as payment in Brazil.
For your safety, security checks are taken on all payments made to us at the time of purchase.
Will my personal details stay safe?
Absolutely. We keep your personal data private and confidential and only give it out with your consent or if legally permitted to. For further details, please see the https://hauteskinboutique.com/policies/privacy-policy

Are you going to have my style again?
You can be the first to know! To be notified if a sold-out item becomes available again, click on "Item Unavailable?' on the item’s page, select the size you need, and then enter your email address.
Can I reserve an item to buy later?
