Delivery

As a rule, we make delivery between 24- 48hours of confirming receipt of payment. This is without prejudice to changes in policies, developments within Lagos, markets and social events which may by one way or the other impact our ability to uphold this timeline.  Nonetheless, we shall communicate any such delay with you and align on a new delivery date.

If you are unavailable at the first delivery attempt, you will bear the cost of re-delivery of your order. You will also bear the cost of any items (including perishable items) that goes bad, gets damaged, expire or become no longer fit for purpose as a result of your unavailability for delivery.

Communicating with You During Order Processing

While processing your order, we may need to contact you to discuss the availability of items in your order or price adjustments. We require your response within 15 minutes of us contacting you via phone call, SMS, email, WhatsApp messaging or call) or any other messaging service about any replacements or price changes in your order, otherwise, we may deliver only the actual items ordered without including any suggested replacements. At checkout, we may ask for your preferred mode of us communicating with you – we may, however, contact you via other means if you are unreachable on your preferred communication channel.

Access to Your Delivery Location

We always endeavour to deliver your order directly to your address, however if access to your location is limited due to a dilapidated road, severe traffic, flooding, road blocks, civil unrest or any other encumbrances, then we will require you to notify us in advance and also to meet the delivery driver at a more accessible location. Failure to notify us of any such issues may result in a delay and/or rescheduling of your delivery or a cancellation of your order.

Access Within Your Building

Our delivery drivers are very happy to carry your order to your doorstep and even into your home, if you want them to. If your building has an elevator, the drivers will bring the order to any floor you’re on. If, however, the building has no elevator, your order will be delivered to the ground floor.

Meeting Our Delivery Driver

In order to enable our delivery drivers effect timely deliveries, they are mandated to wait for a maximum of 5 minutes for each customer to receive their orders from them. After contacting a customer and the customer is either unresponsive or fails to show up after 5 minutes, the driver may leave the delivery location. If you are unreachable at the point of delivery, your order may be rescheduled at an additional cost. We will accept no liability for perishable or other items that are damaged due to the wait time or rescheduling of delivery.

Cancellations

When we receive customer orders, they may not be processed immediately and may only be processed on the day of delivery. Once an order has been paid for, Òlòjà may be unable to accept a cancellation of the order if that order is already being processed. This, however, does not affect your rights to a refund in the event that an incorrect or damaged item is delivered.

Returns

If Òlòjà delivers an incorrect or damaged item (damage that has been caused by us), we will happily replace the item at no additional cost to you. For us to replace such items, customers will need to notify the delivery driver of their observation at the point of delivery. Once customers have taken delivery of their order, they take ownership of the products in the order and Òlòjà may be unable to accept any returns. For this reason, we ask customers to carefully check and confirm the accuracy of their order with the delivery driver. Òlòjà will not accept returns for products that have no material damage to them. Products that are materially intact but whose packaging may have scratches, peels, tearing, dents, discolouration, rust, or any other aesthetic impairment that does not affect the taste, functionality or integrity of the actual product may not be accepted by Òlòjà as a return.

Refunds

If an item you ordered is unavailable, we will continue to check for the item until it is back in stock. If, after our checks, the item remains out of stock, any credit due to you will be added to your Òlòjà eWallet. We do not process refunds to bank accounts. In instances where your address is not within our delivery coverage locations or we later receive a payment which did not reflect in our account at the time you made it, we may process a refund to your account after deducting relevant bank charges.

Treatment of Our Employees

Òlòjà employees and agents always strive to please customers and often go to extra lengths to ensure customers are fully satisfied with the service. We expect that our customers will accord the same courtesy and respect to all our employees and agents they may engage with via email, over the phone or in person. Our employees and agents mean a lot to us and without them, we will not be able to provide the level of service we offer our customers. So, while we will be patient with customers, we strongly appeal that you desist from written, verbal or physical abuse to our employees and agents. Any breach of this by a customer or their representative may result in our refusal to fulfill the customer’s order. In such an instance, if the products in the customer’s order have already been processed and paid for, we may decide not to deliver the order, and, instead require the customer to pick up the order at a location of our choosing. If, however, the order has not been processed, we may process a refund after deducting relevant bank, transactional and operational charges and costs Òlòjà may have incurred. Òlòjà reserves the right to report any incidence of abuse to the appropriate law enforcement authorities.
