SamBoad Online Store Returns, Exchanges & Refund policy

As a team, our goal every day is to deliver on the promise and exceed expectations but we also understand that human processes are prone to errors and we are dedicated to correcting any issues as fast as possible to ensure customer satisfaction. 

On our website, we have provided as much information on our product’s sizes, material, design, weight and recommended use. It is the responsibility of the customer to do due diligence on products and their features before purchase.  

If your purchase isn’t quite right you have 3-5 days from the date you received your order to exchange or return.

Items must be returned to us unused, with its packaging in place and with all labels still attached.

Shipping is complimentary on all exchanges, although customers outside Ghana are responsible for taxes and duties.

We treat purchase information as confidential therefore we only maintain communication with the purchaser. In case of an unsatisfactory service or product we kindly ask that only the purchaser reach us on phone or email.

The nature of leather

We use high-quality pull up leather and material which is not fully processed with the plastic coating, this allows the hide to be supple, gives it the unique luxurious feel and allows it to age extremely well. We respect that leather is a natural material and thus has natural characteristics such as stretch marks, grazing scratches & marks, skin rash, wrinkles and un-evenness in dye.

Colour/ dye

Every skin reacts to dye differently and even though they go through the same tanning process at the same time, a slight variation of colour is to be expected from one hide to another. No one skin is similar to another and therefore every product is unique.

As the aging process starts, you may also notice a slight change in the colour, this is nothing to worry about because the products uniquely starts to form its own personality because of the new environment and use.

We have also made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products on store.samboadbusinessgroup.org or and our social platforms. However, as computer and mobile phone monitors vary, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will be completely accurate.

TANNING PROCESS

The leather tanning process heavily relies on weather; processes like sun drying are affected during rainy or cold seasons therefore, such unpredictability may cause delays on our part. If we foresee any delays, our customer care representative will communicate to you early enough for proper planning. We kindly ask for your patience.

Personalization

The process of embossing includes making a metal mould of the intended monogram which is then hot pressed against the hide to imprint the name. The different leather finishes, thickness and length of the words, may cause the imprint to vary in depth.

Due to the permanency of this process, we do not refund or exchange customised orders unless the fault is clearly on our end.

Returns that do not meet our policy will be sent back to the customer.

Size exchange

You might have ordered the wrong size of a product and would like it exchanged to either a smaller or bigger size.

If the product you are exchanging with is cheaper than the original order, you will be required to take additional items to cover the cost difference.
