At OPARI, we operate on a per-order basis to ensure a tailored and efficient shopping experience. Placing orders individually with international factories incurs various costs, and we want to clarify our Returns and Refunds Policy to align with this business model.

1. Per-Order Basis: Every order you place with OPARI is processed individually, allowing us to fulfill your specific requirements efficiently. This approach helps us manage costs associated with procurement, shipping, and customs duties.

2. Incurred Costs: Ordering on a per-order basis involves several essential costs, including stock procurement and international shipping fees. These costs are integral to providing you with a curated and distinctive shopping experience.

3. No Cash Refund Policy: In consideration of the per-order model and associated costs, we have implemented a no cash refund policy since 12.04.23. This policy reflects our commitment to maintaining the quality and efficiency of our operations. We appreciate your understanding as a valued customer.

Consideration Before Purchase: We kindly request our customers to consider the per-order nature of our business and the associated costs before making a purchase. Your awareness of our business model contributes to a positive and cooperative relationship.

Contact Us: For any inquiries related to our Returns and Refunds Policy, please contact our dedicated customer service team at info@opari.co.za. We are available to assist you and ensure your satisfaction.
