Orders & Payments

We are unable to give you a more specific delivery date as we don't have real-time access to the manufacturers' inventory counts. However, the majority of pre-orders arrive in 6-10 weeks timeline, while some arrive sooner and a few arrive later. If you need an item for a specific event or date, contact us prior to placing the order and we may be able to give you more detailed information.

Your full payment is charged to your preferred payment method at the time of purchase to secure your order.

Custom orders are non-returnable and non-exchangeable. If you would like to place a custom order, contact us and we'll be glad to assist you.

An existing order can't be modified. A new order will have to be placed and the old order canceled. You can change your order within 24 hours of placing it without a fee. After 24 hours there is a $28 per item change fee, which will be invoiced to you on the new order. We can do this for you, please contact us and we'll be happy to assist.

You can cancel your order within 24 hours of placing it without a fee by sending us an email. After 24 hours there is a 10% cancelation fee, which will be deducted from your refund or store credit.

Custom orders can be canceled only within 24 hours of placement; after 24 hours no cancelations are possible for custom orders.

We are not able to cancel an order after it has been shipped. You can initiate a return (if the item is eligible for a return) after you receive your order.

Afterpay offers simple and affordable installment plans for shoppers. The payment platform allows you to purchase in four equal installments, due every 2 weeks. For example, if you purchase an item for $200, you pay 4 installments of $50. There is no additional cost to use Afterpay so long as you pay on time. All of your payments are interest free and you will receive your order as soon as the items are available, in-stock or when they arrive for pre-orders. See more information here.

Pivoting, sliding, or any other active motion is likely to leave a mark. If a returned item is found to show signs of wear and is thus unsellable, it will be declined and returned to you at your expense.

Only one exchange per ordered item, please; the exchanged item is non-returnable.

Made-to-order items - i.e., heel or width adjustments made for you- are returnable for store credit only.

Loyalty Program

If you have a store account with Axis Tango where you log in to make your purchases, you are automatically enrolled in the Loyalty Rewards program. If you don't yet have a store account, simply click the Rewards widget on the lower left corner on our site. Create a store account or log in with your customer account and start earning!

Yes. Get your personal code in the Rewards widget and then copy & paste it in the checkout.

An easy way to think about the two programs is this:

Loyalty Rewards program is focused on collecting & using loyalty store credit for yourself. You will receive 5% store cash back on your purchases.

Affiliate program is focused on sharing & promoting Axis Tango; for each purchase resulting from this activity you receive a commission.

Rewards program and affiliate program are separate, and you can sign up for both. Because they are managed by two different systems, you will have two different logins. But don't worry, the systems are very user-friendly and you'll have no trouble with either. Of course, contact us any time with any questions!

Discount Coupons

The system accepts only one discount coupon per order. Discount coupons have a shelf life of 1 use; once the coupon has been used it becomes void and can't be applied to a future order.

Store credit is "store cash" and is therefore considered a form of payment. You can apply multiple store credit codes on the same order.

Enter the discount code in the field on the checkout page.

Please note: The system accepts only one discount coupon per order. Discount coupons have a shelf life of 1 use; once the coupon has been used it becomes void and can't be applied to a future order.

Discount coupons from the loyalty program redemptions expire after 12 months of creation. You should make a note of the expiration date in your calendar. Once the store credits have expired, they are canceled and cannot be reinstated for any reason.

Should there be other discount coupons available, they may or may not have an expiration date. Be sure to check the coupon for expiration date information as expired coupons are voided and can't be reinstated.

If you forget to use your discount coupon on your order, we are unable to retroactively apply it or adjust your purchase total. Keep the coupon for your next order.

Yes, we are happy to offer 15% pro discount to dance teachers and performers. Please contact us for details.

Gift Cards

Gift cards can be delivered directly to the recipient by email, instant message, or can be printed out, and contain checkout redemption instructions. You can send a gift card immediately or specify a send date. Our gift cards have no additional processing fees.

If you don't use the entire gift card amount, the remaining balance will still remain active. You can use the remaining gift card funds on another purchase by using the code at checkout in the same way you used it the first time.

Should you make a return on a purchase paid fully or partially with a gift card, the refund amount will be returned back to your gift card first, and should there be a refund balance, then to the other mode of payment.

Gift cards are non-returnable and non-refundable.

Enter the gift card code in the field on the checkout page.
