How do I create a PRECIS account?
You can create a Precis account by clicking the Register link at the top of the page. You will be asked to provide your name, email address and a password which must be at least eight characters in length. You can then use your email address and password to sign in to your account. Alternatively you can register quickly for an account by using your Facebook or Google social account details.
You can also register for an account after you’ve placed an order on our website. When you reach the order confirmation page you simply need to create a password and your account will be created.
What are the benefits of setting up a "My Account" on your site?
Anyone who creates an account will enjoy a faster, more convenient shopping experience.
Creating an account will allow you to:

Why are you asking me to create a new password?
We’re asking existing account holders to create a new password for security purposes. Our recently upgraded website has improved security features and requires passwords to be at least eight characters in length. Account holders will only need to create a new password once. If you’ve never previously had a Precis Petite account, you won’t need to follow the steps of creating a new password as this only applies to existing account holders.
