Return Policy

When you shop on Afri Artisans, you can purchase items sold directly by Afri Artisans or by third-party sellers who list their products for sale on our marketplace. In either case, our goal is to provide you with an outstanding customer experience every time you shop with us. This Return Policy covers all items purchased through Afri Artisans.com. It’s designed to give you confidence that we stand behind the products on our marketplace and to make returns easy if you’re not fully satisfied with an item. You should review these terms carefully before making any purchase.

Returns

If you’re not satisfied with an item that you purchased on Afri Artisans, you can initiate a return within 3 calendar days of delivery for a refund, as long as the item delivered was an error on the part of Afri Artisans, is in its original condition and packaging and subject to the additional guidelines set forth in this Policy. Items that have been used or modified in any way may not be returned. Please see the next section if the item arrived damaged or defective; different terms may apply.

To return an item, visit the Your Order page, select the “Return or Replace Item” button for the appropriate order and follow the instructions or write us at afriartisans@gmail.com. You will not be responsible for the return shipping costs in the case where the return is as a result of Afri Artisans’s error. Where is it not as a result of our error, you will be responsible for the cost of returns (even if you use a return shipping label provided by Afri Artisans or the seller), except in instances where the item arrived damaged or defective. Note that the option to initiate a return will appear on the date of delivery.

If you send the item back without a label from Afri Artisans or the seller, we recommend ensuring your return shipment and using a trackable shipping method. All approved returns must be postmarked or picked up by the carrier within 3 calendar days of the approved return request. Refunds will not be issued for items damaged in return transit or for returns that are never received.

The following items may not be returned:

  • Items marked as final sale or “non-returnable” on the product page or during the checkout process;
  • Gift cards; or
  • Any items shipped to Canada.

Damaged and Defective Items

In the unlikely event that an item you ordered arrives damaged or is defective, you may return the item (and any other items from that order if they are part of a set) for a replacement or a full refund, as long as you report the issue within the following timeframes:

  • For Items Shipped by Parcel Carriers (such as FedEx, UPS or USPS):
        i. Damaged and Defective Items: On the date of delivery
  • For Items Shipped by Freight Carriers (including White Glove Service):
        i. Damaged Items: Within 1 days of delivery. It’s critical to report the issue within this time period so that a claim can be filed with the carrier.
        ii. Defective Items: Within 1 calendar days of delivery.

You can find the type of delivery (parcel or freight) for your item listed on your shipment confirmation email.

We encourage you to inspect the packaging of the item before you accept the item from the carrier. If the packaging or the item appears damaged when it arrives, you should take pictures of the damage and you may inform the carrier and refuse delivery. In that case, please report the issue within the applicable timeframe listed above and you can choose to receive a replacement or a refund.

To report an issue with an item, please visit the Your Orders page, select the “Return or Replace Item” button for the order and follow the instructions. You may be required to submit photographs of the damaged or defective product and its packaging (the original packaging is required to facilitate a return unless it was damaged in transit and is unusable).

Important Note About Freight Forwarders: If you decide to use your own freight forwarder to ship an item or if you export an item outside the Nigeria yourself or through another carrier, then Afri Artisans will not be responsible for providing any replacement or refund for any damaged or defective items. You should not list Afri Artisans on any export documentation under any circumstances.

Refunds

If you choose to get a refund for eligible items, you’ll be refunded the price of the product and applicable sales tax. If an order is placed in US dollars, any refund will be in accordance with the current exchange rate for US dollars. For damaged or defective items (and any other items from that order if they are part of a set), you will also receive a refund for any amount you may have paid through Afri Artisans to have the item shipped to you. For items that were not damaged or defective, you will be responsible for the return shipping costs (whether the item was shipped by parcel or freight); if you use a return shipping label provided by Afri Artisans or the seller, the shipping costs will be deducted from the amount of the refund due to you.

Refunds will be issued to the original method of payment shortly after Afri Artisans or the seller (as the case may be) receives and processes the eligible item. If we are unable to refund the original method of payment, Afri Artisans will provide you with store credit for the amount of the refund due to you, which may only be used for purchases on Afri Artisans Shop via afriartisans.com
