I haven't received any confirmation emails. Whats up with that?
Sorry about that! It's possible the email went straight to your bulk/spam folder, or we may have an incorrect email address on file. But no worries, just contact email@example.com, and we will verify whether your order was placed and
re-send any confirmation emails.
How do I check the status of my order?
Let us count the ways!
Once your order has been sent out, your initial email confirmation will update to show a Shipped status and include a tracking number if applicable
You will also receive a separate shipping confirmation email with the same information
If you are a registered member, you can also select My Account and check your order status under the Order History tab
Standard orders generally ship out within 3 business days, and expedited orders will ship out the same day if placed by 11AM (PST) Mondays through Fridays.
I placed my order on the weekend with expedited shipping. Why hasn't it shipped yet?
All orders received on weekends are processed the following business day, so sit tight. We are gonna get it out as soon as we can!
CHANGING AN ORDER
Can I change my order or cancel it after it has been placed?
We wanna make sure you get your order as quickly as possible, and our facilities are fully automated to do just that. So once an order has been placed, we are unable to cancel it or change any items. Thank you for your understanding!
Can I get a price adjustment or apply a coupon after an order has been placed?
Unfortunately, we cannot make any changes to orders once placed. This includes the price and coupons.
I won't be home to sign for my package. Will it be left at my front door?
It depends on the carrier's policy and the driver's discretion. If the driver doesn't think it is safe to leave a package, he or she will return with it the next business day.
I don't want my package to be stolen. Can I make sure it requires a signature?
We can't change an order once its been submitted into the system and it includes adding signature required to an order. Customers will need to type in their request to the customer comment section so i can honor it before releasing.
My package isn't here, even though the tracking says it's been delivered. Now what?
So sorry about that! Here are some steps we recommend trying first:
Confirm that the correct shipping address was entered at checkout
Search your property thoroughly (sometimes the carrier will place packages in discreet locations for your security)
Check with your neighbors to make sure no one is holding the package for you
If you still haven't found it, please contact Customer Service within 10 days of the original quoted delivery date at Customerservice@ajalaboutik.com, so that a representative may begin a lost/missing package investigation with the delivery company. Resolution of the matter could depend on the results of said investigation.
I paid for Expedited shipping to Canada, and it's been 7 days. Why isn't my package here?
Orders to Canada are shipped via United States Postal Service and Canada Post. Standard orders can take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive. Expedited orders generally take 5 to 7 days to arrive, but those dates cannot be guaranteed because of possible delays in customs. If a customs number was included in your shipping confirmation email, that could be a useful reference when tracking your package or trying to obtain additional information from customs.
I already paid for International shipping. Why was I charged additional fees when my package was delivered?
Some countries will impose additional tariffs on items shipped from abroad. These nation-specific duties are added by your respective government and are not shipping charges from Afriq Expression LLC, A Parent Company of Ajala Boutik. Please contact your postal service and customs officials for more information. Canadian residents can visit www.ccra-adrc.gc.ca (Canada Revenue Agency) or www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca (Canada Border Services Agency). Canada customs can be reached at 1(800)461-9999 toll-free from within Canada or 1(204)983-3500 / 1(506)636-5064 from outside Canada.

Yes! Items can be returned for a refund or an exchange as long as:
It is within 30 days of the ship date (returning package must be postmarked as so)
The merchandise has not been worn, washed, or altered in any way
How will I know if my return has reached you?
We don’t know whether a package has been received by our warehouse until it is ready to be processed, so we definitely recommend shipping your item(s) back to us with a tracking number. That way you can watch your return and know exactly when it is delivered!
How will I know if my return has been processed?
We'll make sure to send you a confirmation email. If you haven't received one yet, just remember that returns and exchanges generally take 7 business days to complete. Here's where that tracking number comes in handy again! If you know when your package will be delivered, you can figure out the approximate time frame of when it will be processed too :)
I lost my invoice. Can I still make a return or exchange?
Sure, but you will still need to identify your package with some account details first. If you still have the order or shipping confirmation in your email, all you have to do is print that out! Otherwise you can jot down the following information and include it with your return package:
First + Last Name
Billing + Shipping Address
I took off all the tags and threw away the shoe boxes. Can I still return my order?
Definitely, as long as the merchandise has not been worn and still meets the 30-day return policy. But please note that all products returned without their original tags and shoe boxes may be assessed a $1 restocking fee per item.
Nooooo. The item I want is sold out. Will it be back?
#TBH, we can't know for sure if something will be restocked, but if the item was super popular, you bet we will be trying our best to get it back on the site for you guys. We actually receive restocks as well as new styles every single day, so definitely keep checking back! Even if what you're looking for doesn't come back into your life, you 'll probably be able to find something really similar to it. But if you see an item you absolutely can't live without, we say get it right away and don't take any chances.
