Delivery & Returns

Back to homepage

At KOKOstores.com we make every effort to ensure your purchase gets to you as quickly, safely and cost effectively as possible. We achieve this by offering all of our mainland African customers the same premium service at the lowest possible cost due to the quantity of business we place with our chosen couriers. We endeavour to deliver all orders that are placed before 2pm on the next business day. Please note, however, that the delivery of your order may be restricted depending on the size, weight and chosen destination of the package. Other factors such as weather and mechanical difficulties can also result in later deliveries. If the delivery address is different to the billing address then we may have to run further checks to ensure your credit card security, this may result in longer delivery times.

Your order will be packed and dispatched, provided:

The item you have chosen is in stock.

The delivery address has been verified.

Payment has been approved.

We will send you an initial email confirming receipt of your order; then a further email confirming that your order is ready for dispatch along with your shipping reference number. Where an item is not in stock, we will advise you of the anticipated time for delivery (if such item will be available in future). Orders can be delivered to either business or residential addresses, however all packages will require a signature on receipt of delivery. It is customary for the dispatch companies we use to leave a notification card with their contact information if the delivery address is unattended at the time of delivery, however this may not always be the case. www.KOKOstores.com cannot take responsibility if a notification card is not left in any instance.

My order still hasnt arrived. What should I do?

If you still have not received your order within the delivery guidelines stated, please contact us at orders@KOKOstores.comwith your query and order number. Please note that occasionally, delays may occur that are outside of our control, but we will do our best to rectify the situation.

Do I have to be at home to receive my parcel?

To ensure that your parcel arrives safely, all orders require a signature on delivery. This can be you, or someone you have designated to take delivery at the delivery address provided. If no one is present to sign for the delivery, Royal Mail will leave a 'while you were out' card informing you where you can collect the parcel, or how you arrange re-delivery at a more convenient time.

Do I have to pay import charges?

KOKOstores delivery charges for international orders do not include duty and custom charges. Any such charges are the responsibility of the buyer, and must be paid at the time of delivery. In the event that you wish to return your item, KOKOstores is unable to refund import duty and local sales taxes. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. Please contact your local customs office if you require further information.
