This is because we are unable to claim insurance with our delivery carriers on packages that have been delivered without signature confirmation. We recommend paying the extra fee for signature confirmation for insurance on your package. In addition, we are not liable to replace or refund orders due to loss or theft, if they are scanned as delivered by our delivery partners. If you do receive a replacement order, the same rules apply.

        The products I received were damaged. Can I get a replacement?

        If you receive damaged items, we require that you inform us within 7 days of the item's delivery by emailing hello@inka.world. We then have 5 business days to investigate what went wrong and respond with a way to remedy the situation. In some cases we do require that damaged goods are sent back to our warehouse for inspection. The damaged items have to be unused and in their original packaging to be eligible for return. If you have contacted us outside of the 7 day window, the goods cannot be returned or refunded. We are only liable to replace the products that are damaged, not the products that had been delivered in satisfactory condition. If you would like to return all products for a full refund, please contact us to proceed this route. 

         

        I have been using my Inka products for sometime now and am unhappy with them. Can I get a refund?

        No, our products do not come with a warranty. We ask customers to closely inspect their products upon receiving them as once they are used we cannot refund or return them due to product hygiene restrictions.
