SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Online fashion retailer Justfab Inc. has paid $1.8 million to settle a Northern California lawsuit that claimed it misled customers about its subscription fees.

Prosecutors in Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties say the consumer protection case was settled this week.

Those counties alleged that company websites didn’t “clearly and conspicuously” explain that customers couldn’t get advertised discounts on items such as shoes and children’s clothing unless they paid a monthly subscription fee that was charged automatically.

Justfab.com, for example, has a fee of $39.95 a month.

The other websites were Fabkids.com, Shoedazzle.com, and Fabletics.com.

An email seeking comment from the Southern California company wasn’t immediately returned Friday night. However, authorities say the company cooperated with the investigation.
