After you have placed your order and we have processed your payment we will provide you with an order confirmation by email.

Your order represents an offer to purchase, which we accept when we dispatch your product(s) and send you an email confirming that your product(s) has/have been dispatched.

Whilst we will make our best efforts to process all orders, there may be exceptional circumstances which mean that we may need to refuse to process an order after we have sent you an order confirmation, which we reserve the right to do at any time, at our sole discretion. Such circumstances are:

  • If delivery of an order will result in unacceptably high freight charges, Classic Africana, we reserve the right to contact you to request further shipping fees or to cancel the order before dispatch. If your order is cancelled in these circumstances we will issue a full refund.

Where we cannot reasonably rule out fraudulent card use prior to processing your order, we may decide to cancel the order (notifying you via email). 

9. Product Delivery

Delivery Fees

Delivery fees and times will vary for different products and are calculated based on the size and weight of your order and its destination. The delivery price for each order will be displayed during the checkout process, prior to payment and order confirmation and included in the total price of your order. Changes made to delivery address or delivery time after placing an order may incur additional charges, which we reserve the right to request to add to your original delivery charge. Delivery estimates calculated at checkout are based on delivery to the front door of a ground floor. Approval for requests to have items delivered past this point must be requested prior to an order being placed. This is a request and cannot be guaranteed. The request is based on courier availability and payment of this service. 

You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges presented to you at the time you make a purchase. 

Delivery time

Delivery times will vary. We will use our best efforts to ensure your order arrives as soon as possible. Each product listing includes the estimated delivery time frame for that product. In some cases the estimated dispatch time frame will be longer, for example where items are made to order or for reasons outside our control. We work hard to process all orders as quickly as possible and we will send you an email to let you know when your item has been dispatched by us or if we anticipate delays. 

Delivery methods & locations

We work with delivery partners and courier companies in order to deliver worldwide; in some cases this may be handed to a third party to ensure remote areas can be accommodated. Your order will be delivered to the delivery address provided by you during the checkout process or as updated through our Customer Care team after your order is finalised. 

Note that we DO NOT deliver to P.O. Boxes. For larger high value items, we may be able to offer alternate delivery service, however this is not available for all items and all areas. Our customer care team can confirm if this is available to your order and area, applicable fees and charges will apply.

Our delivery partner may leave a card at the address and you will need to pick up the delivery from your nearest Post outlet or contact the courier company to arrange for re-delivery. 

In this case of areas that are inaccessible with standard courier and delivery services and for items we deem at high risk of loss or damage, we reserve the right to refuse delivery to these locations. In this case, you may choose to have an item delivered using your own couriers, in which case all insurance for loss or damage to the order caused by the delivery will be your responsibility. 

Delivery failure

It is vital that you verify your information is correct before placing your order, especially your delivery address. In the event the address provided is incorrect and the package is returned, you will be billed for the additional shipping charges in order for your delivery to reach you. You agree to this by placing an order with us, we reserve the right to pass on applicable charges to you if you provide wrong address information. We also require a contact phone number, which may be used to arrange delivery by the courier. If we and our delivery partner have been unable to deliver your order due to your error or fault after 21 days or 2 attempts (whichever is sooner), we reserve the right to cancel your order. In these circumstances we will refund you the price of your order, less the delivery and handling fees incurred by us. 

Authority To Leave

By selecting No and clicking Accept on our Signature on Delivery option you authorise the courier to leave the goods unattended at the delivery address and you accept that once the courier has done so, the complete order has been received. Selection of Authority to Leave is deemed by our couriers as a signature from the recipient.

Classic Africana and couriers associated with the delivery, do not accept responsibility for any loss or damage which results from the Authority To Leave delivery method. You agree to release Classic Africana from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses if Authority To Leave is selected.

Should the courier be unable to leave the parcel or deem the location to be an unsafe area to leave the parcel or your instruction text is unclear, the courier may leave an attempted delivery card and return the parcel to their depot. 

Risk and title to the goods transfers to you after the first attempt at delivery irrespective of whether it was successful or not.
