How do I know if the product is authentic?
HULA is committed to its Anti-Counterfeit Policy and does not accept the listing of fake or counterfeited merchandise of any kind.
Building a mutual trust and positive customer experience are at the core of what HULA strives for each day and thus, we exercise a zero tolerance policy for counterfeit goods.
HULA will only accept for listing on the Website authentic new or pre-owned luxury goods.
Apart from the fact that HULA sellers are “by invite only” industry insiders and referrals, we apply 3-step approach to each product offered for sale on HULA website to ensure authenticity;
1/ Once each item for sale is submitted, our team would undergo rigorous authentication process that includes request for submission of original proof of purchase (if available), inspection of details such as but not limited to brand stamps, serial numbers, stitching, material, care labels and hardware before the item is uploaded on HULA website.
2/ Before any sold item is shipped from our warehouse, our team would undergo another round of authentication and condition check.
3/ Payment to the original seller is withheld for a minimum of 28 working days until the buyer receives the purchased item and is satisfied with the item, including authenticity.
In addition to above, HULA may also work with professional external authenticators and select luxury brands for further assurance of authenticity.
In the event that you suspect an item you have purchased is a counterfeit, please email us at returns@theHULA.com for a free pick-up within 48 hours upon signing the delivery of the product. However, please note that original HULA security tag must be intact for each item and returned within the specified period. In the event that a returned item is indeed a counterfeit, HULA will issue a full refund with additional privileges such as store credits as our way of expressing our sincere apologies.
To honour our Zero tolerance policy for counterfeit goods, HULA is prepared to cooperate fully with relevant local authorities and brands to further investigate the source of counterfeit items, including releasing the details of sellers and returners of counterfeit
What is BID?
BID is a new service which allows members to make an offer for the items they love but can’t afford. After you make an offer, you will immediately know whether your offer was successful.
HOW DO I KNOW FOR WHICH ITEMS I CAN BID?
Go to the top bar and click on “BID”. You can then view all items or shop by category.
On any other shop pages, just look out for the disk where it says BID.
Once you hunt down the item you wish to buy, click on the item and insert the amount you wish to offer in the pop up (the amount must be lower than the existing selling price).
The system will immediately tell you whether you were successful.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY BID WAS ACCEPTED?
If your BID was successful, the system will let you know and add your item to your basket.
You can then proceed to check out or continue to shop. Please note that until you have actually bought the item, it remains open to others to buy it, so better hurry before someone else buys it!
All items for which you have successfully placed a BID will appear in
My Account > My Inventory > My BIDs
and they will be automatically added to your basket.
WHAT IF MY BID WAS DECLINED?
If your offer was rejected, you will be asked whether you wish to BID again.
You have 3 BIDs in total per item. After the 3rd unsuccessful offer, you will have to wait 14 days until you can BID on the same item again - so BID wisely!
WHAT IF I NO LONGER WANT AN ITEM AFTER BIDDING?
No worries, you are not obliged to buy the item after you have successfully placed a BID.
The item will simply show in your account under My Inventory > My BIDs.
You may delete the item from your account any time by clicking the ‘X’ on that item.
CAN I VIEW MY PAST BIDS?
You may view your past bids by going into;
My Account > My Inventory > My Bids
Here you will see the date you last bid, as well as your last bid amount, so you can check when you should try to bid again.
IS THE ITEM I BID STILL REFUNDABLE
Yes. If you wish to return a refundable item and request a refund, you can do so in accordance with our existing refund policy.
TRY YOUR LUCK NOW!
Is the payment system secure?

To qualify for the discount, each item must be HK$800 or over, all items must be purchased in one single transaction, and the shipping address must be the same for all items.
Actual rates will be applied once you check out, and if you purchase several items, the rate will reflect the number and type of items.

Yes, if the original price is known to us. If known to us, the original resale price of a Product is displayed as a small number in grey that is crossed out.
How do I tell the condition of a Product?
Each Product is described in the manner below. HULA has checked the condition before listing a Product on the Website:

A majority of the items for sale have previously been dry-cleaned by the seller before handing them over to HULA. HULA will only get items machine washed or dry cleaned if necessary.
HULA respects the planet. We therefore do not dry clean every time as standard practice because the toxins dry cleaning typically produces are harmful to the environment.

Yes. Products can be filtered by size on any shop page after you have selected the category (i.e. clothing or shoes). Sizes stated are those stated on the actual label of the Product. Please note that the actual measurements of a Product vary between brands. Along with the size label, HULA tries, where possible, provide on the Product description page key measurements of a Product in centimetres or inches. We recommend you double check the size in the Product description before placing an order for a Product.
