FAQS

Store opening hours

Are the IKEA stores open?

According to the specific situation of the Covid-19 virus taking place in the Metropolitan Area of Lisbon and following the instructions of the Portuguese authorities, the IKEA stores in Alfragide and Loures do not open as planned. However, on June 1st we are waiting for you in Matosinhos, Braga and Loulé, ensuring all safety conditions. In the meantime, you can continue to find all the inspiration for your home in IKEA.pt.

Can I continue to buy at IKEA.pt?

Our website continues with the operation, so that you can find inspiration for your home, the most important place in the world. You can place your order and choose home delivery or click and collect.

Before Buying

How can I check if a product is in stock?

You can check stock availability on each product page and use the article number or name to search our website. You can select the store you want under “Shopping list”.

Payment

What are the available payment methods?

At IKEA stores, we accept cash, IKEA gift cards, debit/credit cards (Visa and MasterCard) AMEX cards, certified cheques and bank cheques.

For online shopping, you can pay by debit/credit card (VISA or MasterCard). Payment must be made in full, only after the online order is placed. If you don't have a credit card, you can use the MBNet service (for more information, please contact your bank). If the delivery date you choose is more than 6 days later, you can use an IKEA gift card or a Multibanco reference to pay.

When can I ask for a VAT refund and what do I need to do to get it?

If you shop at an IKEA store, you can ask for a VAT refund if:
- You have a national taxpayer identification number with a permit to ship goods to other countries/territories (outside the EU).
- You are resident in a country or territory outside the EU.
- You are resident in another country/territory and you will be taking your purchases with you.
- You are a customer resident in an EU country and operating a business in another member state and have a tax number registered in the VIES system.
For VAT refunds arising from a purchase in IKEA stores, send us your Export Certificate (CCE) or DAU (Exit Certificate for Shippers/Exporters), whatever the case might be, certified by the competent authorities, as well as the IBAN to which your VAT refund should be sent to.

Customers resident in another EU country should put the goods delivery address on the invoice, in the “delivery address” field, and present a letter confirming the delivery of the goods and the tax number.
If you take the goods with you as onboard luggage, you'll have to ask for a "TaxFreeWorldwide" receipt.
Once the documents have been validated, IKEA will refund the VAT paid by the customer, by issuing a credit note. The certificates and a copy of the original receipt should be sent to:
IKEA Portugal
Estrada Nacional 250
Rua 28 de setembro, Frielas
2660-001 Loures

What should I do if there is a mistake on my invoice or a second copy?

If the change is in your personal information, you can check the information for second copies of invoices available at the end of our contacts page.
If you found a mistake related to products or amounts, you can go to one of our stores, after their reopening on June 1st, or contact us.

Can I cancel or change an online order?
