Your payment option determines when you’ll be charged.
Credit and debit cards
As soon as your order is placed, we authorize the card for the full order’s value, to confirm that funds are available. Authorization does not charge your card; it’s only for verification. We capture the funds (charge your card) if your items are in stock, are in transit from our vendors to a Zulily warehouse or are being shipped directly to you from the vendor, but no later than the fifth day after card authorization.
Funds are captured from your PayPal account as soon as you place an order. Your entire order is charged at that time, including any applicable tax and shipping & handling fees. If we are unable to fulfill any part of your order, you will receive a refund deposited directly back to your PayPal account.
Gift cards, vouchers, etc.
When your order contains the purchase of a gift card or is being paid for using a pre-paid card or a voucher, your card is charged immediately after the funds are authorized. If any part of your order is not fulfilled, you will receive a refund.
