Orders and Contract

Your order for goods is accepted and a contract is formed between African Clothing Store and you when we despatch the goods you have ordered and not before. A contract is not formed at the point in time that payment has been taken from you by African Clothing Store, nor at the point in time that you receive an email from African Clothing Store acknowledging receipt of your order. Until the goods are despatched the order may not be accepted by African Clothing Store, or may be cancelled by you. Exceptions apply to orders for custom made, tailor-made or personalised items and goods made to your order which cannot be cancelled by you once you have received an email confirmation that your order has been received, as such items and goods may already be in production as a result of your order. For a full list of exceptions to items you can return please see under the heading Exceptions To The Returns Policy. For security reasons, until you have placed an order for goods, received your first statement and a payment has been received for those goods, you will be unable to order gift cards. For security reasons we may restrict the volumes of certain items to be sold in any one transaction. Following formation of the contract, African Clothing Store shall continue to own any goods ordered until it has received payment in full from you, even though the goods may have already been delivered to you. Purchases made in-store will be charged the day the goods are despatched/purchased in-store.

In addition you need to obtain their consent to the Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions before placing an order with African Clothing Store.

Whilst we try to ensure that all details (including prices) displayed on this Website are correct and up to date, we have a large number of products on our Website and sometimes products may be incorrectly priced. You must ensure that prior to placing an Order, you have checked all relevant details about the Products you have selected as their relevant details may have changed since you last visited this Website. Product prices shown on the Website may change from time to time, for example, if the Product you are ordering is subject to a promotional discount or offer which is either applied or withdrawn during the selling period. Please note if a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the relevant products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

Prices do not include delivery charges which will be added to your total prior to you placing your Order.

Placing Your Order

Please ensure that you use our measurement guide & size guide before placing your order to ensure the best fit.

Orders are submitted via the Website in the following way:

Once you are ready to make a purchase, click on ‘Add To Basket’ to add the Product you wish to purchase to your Basket. Then proceed by clicking ‘Checkout’ to log into our secure servers to complete your Order. By clicking ‘Checkout’ you are deemed to have accepted our Terms & Conditions.

You will be asked for your billing details and email address to proceed. At this point, you do not have to create an account with us but we require an email address to process your Order.

If you have already registered with us you may enter your sign-in details to access your account.

You will be required to enter your shipping and billing address details if this is your first Order or do not have an account. If you have an account, you can use the address details from your account or add a new shipping address. You will then be required to enter your payment details. We currently cannot store payment details so you will need to enter these each time you place an Order.

You will then be required to select either standard shipping or next day delivery.  The shipping / delivery charges will then be added to the amount you will be charged. By clicking on ‘Checkout’, you are confirming you wish to make an Order and are accepting these Terms of Sale.

Once you have completed your Order, you may create an account with us, which requires a password. You must keep this password confidential and must not disclose it or share it with anyone else. The address that you register with must be the address that your payment card statement is sent to, however you can use a different shipping address.

Once you submit your Order, we will usually then send you a confirmatory email to acknowledge that we have received your Order and that your Order has been accepted by us (“Confirmation”). At this point the contract between us (“Contract”) is formed and we will process the payment details you have given to us to take payment for your Order.

You will receive a further email from us confirming despatch of the Product(s) to the shipping address you have requested.

You should check each email for accuracy and let us know immediately if there are any errors.

When you submit your Order, you are offering to buy the Product(s) at the price set out in the Order. Prices are checked regularly. However, if we find the price has changed, or that there has been a pricing error when we receive your Order, we will contact you and ask if you wish to proceed at the correct price.

If there are any problems with your Order (for example, we don’t have the products you wanted in stock, we can only fulfil part of your Order, or we find the price has changed), you will be contacted by a representative from the African Clothing Store Website Customer Services.

If you have any problems with your Order, please contact our Website Customer Service department at [email protected] or telephone us on (+44) 01438 211744.  Lines open 9am – 9pm, 7 days a week.

Please be advised that we are unable to rectify mistakes you have made on your Order so do check it carefully, before checking out. Please see the section above for your rights to cancel.
