FAQs and T&Cs
Please read the following carefully before placing your order. By placing an order with us, you are deemed to have read and agree to the following unconditionally.
1. Can I change or cancel my order after I have made payment?
Unfortunately, once payment has been made, your order is confirmed and cannot be changed or cancelled. This is because most of our items are fulfilled on a pre-order basis and thus made-to-order. We seek your kind understanding regarding this.
2. What does pre-order mean?
To minimise the wastage of resources, most of our items are available on pre-order. This means that the items are made-to-order, and would require a lead time of two to four weeks from the date of purchase to be delivered to you. Please note that delays are to be expected due to the current Covid-19 situation.
3. Where are your items made?
Our items are carefully sourced and curated from South America, Europe and East Asia.
4. Is there a showroom for me to view the items before purchase?
All our items may be viewed online via our photographs and videos, which are not edited in any way. You may also follow our instagram account @altasingapore. We do not have a showroom as we do this to keep costs low, thus, we are able to provide you with affordable prices for our exceptional pieces.
5. How do I care for my leather bag?
We have put together some tips on caring for your leather bag here. We hope you find them useful!
6. How do I care for my jewellery and accessories?

7. Why do you need my mobile phone number upon checkout?
All orders (with the exception of small goods where normal mail delivery option is available) are delivered to your doorstep by courier service. As such, we would require your mobile number to ensure that your parcel will reach you safely.
8. Are all measurements 100% accurate?
While we try our best to be as accurate as possible, dimensions for leather goods may differ between 0 to 1.5cm.
1. How long will it take for my order to reach me?
In-stock items: For both local (Singapore) and international orders, your order will be mailed out within 5 working days. An email with your deliver tracking number will be sent to you once your order has been picked up by courier service. If you do not receive your order within 5 working days, please contact us immediately. We will not be able to retrieve any parcel past a 7 working day time frame from the point of delivery, and bear no responsibility should claims of non receipt be made after this period. Please note that the default mode of delivery via courier is contactless delivery. If you do not wish for the parcel to be left at your doorstep, you may opt for self collection from us at Bishan.
International orders may take up to 10 additional working days to be delivered to you.
Pre-order items: Items will be dispatched between 2 to 4 weeks of purchase date.
Diamond simulant jewellery items: Items will be dispatched between 3 to 5 weeks of purchase date.
In the event that you ordered both an in-stock item and a pre-order item, both items will be mailed to you when your pre-order item has arrived in Singapore. If you would like the in-stock item first, please drop us an email to state your request.
We also seek your understanding regarding the Covid-19 situation, which may delay shipment by a little. That said, we will strive to ensure you receive your purchases within the abovementioned time frame.
2. What are the shipping costs?
Postage for all local orders is free of charge. Postage for international orders ischargeable by item weight.
3. Do you ship internationally?
Yes. For Brunei and Malaysia, International Standard Delivery (tracked) is free for orders above SGD150. For all other destinations, International Standard Delivery (tracked) is free for orders above SGD300.
We use Q express delivery and SingPost as our default carriers, depending on destination. If you would like to opt for delivery via other delivery carriers, please contact us via email.
Please also note that international orders may be subject to customs duties and/or taxes of the destination country, and these will be fully borne by the buyer.
