Fashion Nova, the well-known online fashion retailer, has recently agreed to a $4.2 million settlement after allegations surfaced that the company blocked negative customer reviews from appearing on their website. This action may have misled consumers regarding the quality of their products. If you have made purchases from FashionNova.com and feel that your decision was influenced by the seemingly positive reviews, you might be entitled to a portion of the settlement.

Who Benefits? Customers who made purchases from FashionNova.com before November 21, 2019, and whose buying decisions were influenced by the reviews and ratings on the site, may be eligible for compensation, especially if they were dissatisfied with the products and did not receive a refund.

How much can I get? The exact settlement amount each claimant will receive has not been disclosed. However, the total settlement fund is $4.2 million, and the amount distributed to each claimant will depend on the total number of valid claims filed.

Important Dates

  • Deadline to File a Claim: The deadline to file a claim was August 15, 2023. Unfortunately, the deadline has passed, and the FTC is no longer accepting claims.

Eligibility Criteria for Fashion Nova Settlement Claimants

The settlement is specific about who qualifies as a class member. To be eligible, you must have purchased products from FashionNova.com before November 21, 2019. Your decision to purchase must have been influenced by the reviews and ratings on the site, and you must have been dissatisfied with the products without receiving a refund.

  • There are no tiers or categories of class members mentioned in the settlement details.

Understanding the Fashion Nova Settlement Rewards

  • Total Settlement Fund: $4.2 million

The Products Involved in the Settlement

The settlement pertains to products sold on FashionNova.com, with the primary concern being the way product reviews and ratings were displayed, potentially influencing customer purchase decisions.

Is Proof Required to Claim the Reward?

The official settlement website does not specify the need for proof to claim the reward, but claimants were required to meet certain eligibility criteria to file a claim.

How to Claim Your Award

While the deadline for filing a claim has passed, eligible claimants were instructed to submit their claims through the dedicated website, Fashion Nova Claims.

Claimants were to provide details of their purchases and how they were influenced by the reviews and ratings on FashionNova.com.

Dissecting the Settlement Amount

The $4.2 million settlement was determined to resolve allegations against Fashion Nova. The distribution of the settlement fund will be based on the number of valid claims received by the deadline.

The Reason Behind the Fashion Nova Class Action Settlement

With the claims process now closed, the next steps involve reviewing the claims and determining the distribution of the settlement funds to eligible claimants.
