Why can I not pay with cash on delivery (COD)?
We currently do not offer Cash On Delivery (COD).
Why does the price of my item change when I try to check out?
Daily Deals and other discounted items have limited stock and these offers are available for a limited time only. Once these offers sell out or expire, the items will revert to their original price.
Occasionally, where the limited deal-priced stock of an item sells incredibly fast, the product page price might take a short time to update, but the price displayed in your cart summary when you check out will always be the correct and final price of the product. Always double check your final cart summary before checking out.
Deals and discounted prices are only secured through payment and not by adding them to your cart. We’re only able to honour deal and discount prices for the amount of stock that was made available for these offers.
Why haven’t I received my payment confirmation email?
You’ll receive your payment confirmation email once we’ve received payment. If you haven’t received it yet you can check your Order History under your Afro Nala account profile to make sure your payment has been processed successfully.
Can you deliver my order to multiple delivery addresses?
Unfortunately you can only use a single address per order.

Our deliveries usually take between 2 to 7 days under normal circumstances. You can also track your delivery at any time from our 3rd party delivery service.
You will also receive periodic updates about your delivery. This is the most current tracking information we have for your order. If this date changes, the courier will let you know straight away by email or SMS.
Can I change my delivery address after I have ordered?
Unfortunately, it’s not possible to change your delivery address after confirming your order, so please always double check that your address details are correct at checkout.
You can change your delivery address here for future orders, you can also update your Address Book under your Customer Dashboard in your Account profile here.

I have a delivery question not listed here, can you help?
Who can sign for my parcel?
The delivery service we offer is a door-to-door service. This means that the order is delivered to the address and not the person – i.e. if the person is not available it can be left with anyone at that address e.g. security, staff, reception, etc. Please ensure that someone you trust is available at the address you selected.
Product damaged at the time of delivery, what should i do?
Should a product be damaged at the time of delivery / collection, please notify us of such delivery / collection by contacting the vendor/seller via the website.
They initiate a return process and we will arrange to collect the product from you at no charge. Once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will, at your choice, repair / replace the product as soon as possible (if such repair / replacement is possible) or credit your account with the purchase price of the product (or refund you if that is your preference). Credits and refunds are normally handled within 8 days of logging the return (bear in mind that refunds can take 1-4 working days to reflect in your account). Repairs and replacements could take longer, depending on parts / replacement availability.
What products are not eligible for returns?
The following products will not be eligible for a refund, exchange or credit:
- electronic vouchers;
- intimates, lingerie, swimwear, bodysuits or underwear;
- jewelry for piercings;
- a beauty product or fragrance which has been used;
- foodstuff, beverages or other products intended for everyday consumption; or
- products which have been personalized for you or made to your specifications, unless defective.
Can my parcel be delivered to an office address?
Ofcourse, your parcel can be delivered to an office address. All you need to do is enter the correct address along with your full names upon checkout.
There are items missing from my order?
More often than not, if you order from multiple vendors your order will have multiple order numbers, therefore each order number will be treated as a separate delivery, and sometimes even a few days apart. Please allow at least 5 working days to receive all your items.
What are the available delivery options and how much does it cost?
We currently only offer Door to Door delivery which can taken between 1-5 working days depending on your location, the location of the various products you’ve ordered and their availability. All products from different brands are in most cases delivered individually, to make sure you get all your products quicker. Our door to door delivery costs R75 per order, no matter how many brands you buy from. You only pay a single delivery fee.
Can I choose to collect my order instead?
We do not have a collect order option because we believe if you can collect directly from the vendor then you should probably buy directly from the vendor.
How can I pay?
Afro Nala currently accepts all Visa and Master Card Debit and Credit card transaction through Yoco’s secure payment gateway. We also support instantEFT payments through PayFast. All major Banks are supported. We also allow payments using the zapper app. Just select zapper at checkout and scan the QR code with your zapper application to complete the payment.
