I am a customer - Help with my order​

Our customers are extremely important to us and we treat all complaints very seriously.

If for any reason you’re unhappy with  product you’ve bought from us or a service you’ve received, choose a solution for help.

We’ve made it simple to track and monitor your order. All you need to do is to click on the “Track Order” button at the top right corner of the page to locate our tracking system. You will need to enter your order number (this can be found from the email confirmation of your order) and your registered email address.

When you check out on ifairbay.com, you can only specify one shipping address per order.

Shipping to Multiple Addresses

We give you the choice to specify one address per order.

If you’re buying several items from the same vendor, and want to designate that items be sent to different addresses (for example, you want to buy an item for yourself and an item to be shipped to a friend as a gift), you will need to purchase the items separately.

Purchasing separately also applies to multi-shop checkout orders. If there are items in your order that need to be shipped to different addresses, they’ll have to be purchased in separate transactions.

Shipping to a Recipient

If you wish to have an item shipped directly to someone else, all you need to do is to check “deliver to a different adder?” box to enter the recipient’s mailing address during checkout.

Make sure to let the vendor know the order is being sent directly to the a different address. You can do this by adding a note to the vendor during checkout.

Each vendor on ifarbay is managed by an independent seller. The vendor creates or curates their own inventory and managers orders. If you have questions about an item you’re interested in or a recent purchase, you’ll need to contact the seller directly for help.

  • Item details: Like size, colour, and materials.
  • Shipping information: Like when an item will ship.
  • Return and exchange policies: Each seller sets their own policies.
  • Order issues: If you have not received your order or if it’s different than it was described on ifairbay.

If your order is not tracked, feel free to contact the vendor to find out the status of your order. Please see our 24/7 online chat to get support.

Please remember to check the vendor’s delivery options before purchasing your product – in many cases you can opt for Standard Delivery (3-5 days) or Priority Delivery (1-2 days) on the checkout page. 

We have put a system in place to help you resolve any problem with your order. For example, if your order hasn’t been delivered, is faulty or is not as described by the vendor, you can open an issue ticket with the vendor where you’ll be able to let them know about the problem.

If you’re not happy with the way your problem is being handled, you can escalate it to our Cusstomer Services. As an ifairbay customer, you are eligible for our Order Protection Guarantee – in the event your order hasn’t arrived, is faulty, damaged or vastly different to what was described, you could be entitled to a refund including shipping charges (where applicable).

You have 90 days to open a dispute with the vendor; if your problem can’t be resolved by the vendor, your case can be escalated to Admin for further review 7 days after the initial dispute was raised

As we are a marketplace and do not sell anything directly, you’ll need to contact the vendor to cancel your order. Simply log into your ifairbay.com account, click ‘View Orders’, and locate the order you’d like to cancel.  

Select ‘Cancel Order’ from the drop-down box next to your order and you’ll be prompted to select a reason for cancellation, and leave any additional comments for the seller. If you choose to cancel your order within 30 minutes of placing it, it will be cancelled instantly. For orders placed more than 30 minutes ago, a cancellation request will need to be sent to the vendor for review. 

Please note: It may not always be possible to cancel your order, as it may already have been dispatched. In this case, please follow the seller’s standard returns process once your order has arrived.

We want to make sure that the products listed on ifairbay.com are not only of a high quality, but legal. If you are aware of a product that violates the law (be it illegal, counterfeit, or an intellectual property violation), please complete our Product Violation Form

Yes 100% secure. Buyer security is our number one priority. Without buyers ifairbay does not exist.

When you order an item or a product and make a payment, your money is directly deposited into ifairbay’s secure bank account. Ifairbay will contact you by email or telephone call to confirm that your item has been delivered by the vendor before they received their money. This ensures that your money is refunded to you when the vendor fails to ship or delvers your product. Ifairbay will only contact you when the status of your order shows “complete” (you will receive email notification updates).

In a situation where the vendor can confirm that you have received the item, ifairbay will still withhold your money and escalate the issues to the ifairbay investigation unit. You will be kept updated through the process until the matter has been resolved.

Refund Calculations

With ifairbay, all refund calculations are made from the final order balance for ifairbay and vendor excluding the shipping and tax rates. The shipping and tax charges belong to the vendor only.

Refund without shipping and tax

Let say, you are refunding an order of GHS10 and  ifairbay has a 10% commission rate. Which means the current ifairbay commission is GHS1 and the seller is receiving GHS9.

So, now you are refunding GHS5 from that order. Which makes the final order balance GHS5. Now your revised ifairbay commission and seller income will be GHS0.5 and GHS4.5 respectively.

We can equate this as:

  1. Order balance – Refund = New order balance
  2. Commission = New order balance x 10%
  3. Vendor revenue = New order balance – Commission

Refund with shipping and tax

Imagine, you are refunding an order of GHS12 where you have GHS2 in shipping rate. The admin has a 10% commission rate.

The admin will still receive a GHS1 commission because the actual order value without the shipping is GHS10 (12-2 =10).

But the vendor will get GHS11 (9+2=11).

Remember: The actual order value is always calculated after deducing the shipping, tax and refund.

So now if there is a refund of GHS5 on the order and the vendor is also refunding the shipping or tax.

Now, when ifairbay approves it, it will seem that a total GHS7 (5+2=7) will be reduced from the GHS12 order.

But, in calculation, the shipping will be deduced directly from the vendors account besides the deduction shared with the ifairbay.

So, the equation is:

  1. New order balance = (Order – Refund amount on products) + (Vendor account – Shipping/Tax)
  2. Commission =  New order balance x 10%
  3. Vendor revenue = New order balance – Commission

Note that the shipping or tax has been reduced from the vendor at step 1 of the calculation. So now ifairbay will get GHS0.5 and the vendor will get GHS4.5 but lose extra 2 for the shipping or tax.

Requesting a refund as a Vendor

Step 1: Customer – vendor negotiation

The customer can start negotiation for refund from the your Store Support, order note or directly contact the you via other means (email. phone etc.).

The customer must provide the order number. If the order has multiple items and the customer only needs one product or one type of product refunded, he must include those details.

Step 2: Sending a request to ifairbay

After you have agreed with the customer that he/she is eligible, you will have to create a refund request from your dashboard against the order. Follow this step

  1. From your dashboard select the “Order” button
  2. Click on the order which you want to refund. Then click on “Request Refund”
  • Enter the refund amount and the reason for the refund (optional)
  1. Click on “Submit Refund Request”
