Thus, Imparfaite is the intermediary between you and the sellers. If you wish to obtain additional information about an item or your order, contact our customer service department on the site's chat room or by e-mail at

It is not possible to try a product before buying.
However, our team is here to help you find the right piece in your size.

If the item does not suit you, you have 14 days to make your return request on

If the item is still visible in our catalogue, it means that it was sold less than 14 days ago and that it is possible that this piece will be returned. So there is still hope...

To be notified when the piece is returned, you can create an alert by clicking on the bell at the top right of the image from the product sheet. If the article is indeed returned, you will be notified by e-mail.


Select the item of your choice and click on "Add to cart"

Please note that putting a piece in your basket does not reserve it .

Then go to the basket page and click on "Validate my basket". Then choose your delivery method, enter your billing and delivery address and proceed with payment by credit card or via Paypal.

Unfortunately, thedelivery address cannot be changed after the order has been placed. Our logistics system is fully automated and changing an address after purchase is very complex.

If you already have an account at Imparfaite, you must first log in to place your order. Without this, the order cannot be validated.

Go to the Vintage Gift Card of our e-shop. Choose the amount of the card (from 25€ to 500€) and the message to insert. Once ordered, the card will be sent to you by email. You can then print it out and give it to your loved one in person. The gift card is valid for 1 year from the date of purchase.

We accept payment by credit card (Visa, Mastercard and American Express) and via Paypal. All payments on our website are secured by our expert provider, Stripe.

The amount of your purchase is deducted once the order has been validated.


In your shopping cart, you have two purchase options: direct shipment from the seller and group shipment.

Seller direct shipping allows you to receive your piece directly from the owner. Thepremium shipment will send your items through the workshop.

With the bulk mailing, you have the possibility of grouping several coins from different sellers in a single mailing, whereas the direct seller mailing allows you to receive one or several coins from the same seller.

If you are looking forward to receiving your treasure vintage, we suggest that you opt for direct shipment as premium shipment requires all items in your order to be collected from different vendors at the workshop. The shipping time for a premium order is therefore longer.

If you are interested in several pieces, we advise you to opt for the grouped shipment in order tosave on postage costs and to receive all these pieces in one and the same package .

The quality control fee is applicable to all grouped orders. It represents 10% of the amount of your order and is limited to 15 euros.

Each item that passes through the workshop passes through the hands of our expert team. They are then packaged in a beautiful, neat box with a small lavender pouch.

You can now receive your coins more quickly because they are sent directly from their owners. The seller has made a commitment to the community Imparfaite to send them to you quickly and carefully packaged. By selecting several coins from the same seller, he will be able to group your order and you will save on your shipping costs.

We will then receive each of your treasures in our Parisian workshop, check them one by one, and pack them in a single package, accompanied by a small lavender pouch.

Unfortunately it is not (yet) possible to pick up your order at the Atelier. 

If you need a delivery before a certain date, please let us know and we will do our best to make it happen.

As soon as your order is placed, we inform the owner who will send you your treasures as soon as possible in the case of a direct order or to the workshop in the case of a grouped order.

Orders placed outside the European Union are usually subject to customs duties, or import taxes and charges. 

How much are the customs fees for my order?

To find out the exact amount of these customs fees before you buy, we suggest that you contact the customs authorities in your country. These customs fees correspond to a percentage of the value of the imported goods. 

Once your order has arrived at its destination, the independent customs authorities in your country may contact you to request payment of these customs fees. In this case, you are responsible for paying these charges. 

What happens if the customs fees are not paid?

The package will be returned to the sender. Once received by the sender, our customer service will contact you and proceed with the refund of your order with your agreement. 

Since the UK's exit from the EU, all imports of goods from the EU into the UK are subject to duty.

The import of second-hand items is no exception and is subject to import VAT if the value of the items in your parcel exceeds £135.00.

The calculation of import VAT is based on the value of the item and the shipping and handling costs.
