PayPal can be used at Mekamart.com to purchase items by Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express) or Debit Card.

If the package has not been dispatched yet, we will be able to ship to the new address. However, if the package has already been shipped, then the shipping information will not be able to be changed while the package is in transit.

The duration depends on the shipping method you choose and your residential country location . Delivery times vary based on the shipping method used. If the package cannot be delivered on time due to war, flood, typhoon, storm, earthquake, severe weather conditions, or any other situation which cannot be foreseen or avoided, then delivery will be postponed. In the event of such delays, we will work on the issue and keep in contact with you until there is a positive solution.

We ship worldwide. The exact shipping rate varies based on the item weight and the destination country. We will always suggest the most appropriate shipping weight for our customers to help to save money. Our goal is always fast and secure delivery of items to our customers. The more you buy, the cheaper you get in shipping rates plus discounts.

The delivery cost depends on the shipping method that is selected, along with the shipping time and your residential country location. For example, if the shipping cost between UPS and FedEx is 10 US dollars, our advice is to choose which option best meets your individual needs, based on price and shipping time.

Some products have their shipping cost included. These are promotional products which are marked down for sales.

The tracking information normally appears after 2-3 business days following dispatch. If a tracking number is not searchable after this period of time, there are several possible causes.

We would advise you to contact our dedicated Customer Service Department and provide them with your Mekamart order number. We will contact the shipping company on your behalf, and you will be updated once there is any further information.

IV) AFTER SALES FAQs

1. How can I cancel my order, before and after payment?

Cancellation before payment

If you have not paid for your order yet, then there is no need for you to contact us to cancel it. We do not process orders until a matching payment has been received for the order. If your order is more than a week old and is still unpaid, you will not be able to "reactivate" it by sending a payment, because the prices of the individual items may have changed, along with the currency conversions and shipping rates. You will need to submit the order again with a new shopping cart.

Withdrawing an order after payment

If you have already paid for an order and want to cancel it, please contact our Customer Service Department as soon as possible.

If you are not sure about an issue relating to your order or you wish to change it, please contact our Customer Service Department and put the order on hold while you decide. This will suspend the packaging process while you make changes.

If the package has already been dispatched, then we are not able to cancel or change the order.

If you wish to cancel an existing order because you are ADDING other products, there is no need to cancel the entire order. Simply contact out Customer Service Department and we will process the updated order; there is usually no additional fee for this service.

Generally, if your order is in an early part of the processing stage, you may still be able to change or cancel it. You can ask for a refund or provide the payment as credit for future orders.


2. How can I return my purchased items to Mekamart?

Before returning any items to us, please read and follow the instructions below. Please make sure that you understand our return policy and that you meet all the criteria. The first step is to contact our After Sales Service Department and  provide us with the following information:

a. The original order number

b. The reason for the exchange

c. Photographs clearly showing the problem with the item

d. Details of the requested replacement item: the item number, the name and color

e. Your shipping address and phone number

Please note that we are unable to process any returned items which have been sent back without our prior agreement. All returned items must have an RMA number. Once we have agreed to accept the returned item, please make sure you write a note in English containing your order number or PayPal ID so that we are able to locate your order information.

The return or RMA process can only be initiated within 40 calendar days upon receipt of your items. We can only accept returned products that are in their original condition.


3. Under which circumstances would an item be able to be exchanged or returned?

At Mekamart, we pride ourselves in the quality and fit of our clothes. All the Women's Clothing that we sell are designated as OSRM (Other Special Regulated Materials) and, once sold, cannot be returned or exchanged in cases other than quality issues or mis-shipment.


Quality Issues:

Should you find any item to be materially defective, the item must be returned to us in the same condition as it was sent within 30 calendar days after receiving the garment – it must be unwashed, unworn and with all the original tags affixed. Although we carefully check all merchandise for visible defects and damage prior to shipment, it is the buyer's responsibility to check the product upon its arrival to make sure it is free from any defects or problems. Damaged goods due to client negligence or items without their tags will not be accepted for refund.


Mis-shipment:

We will exchange your product in cases where the purchased product does not match the item ordered. For instance, it is not the color that you ordered (perceived color differences due to your computer monitor will not be exchanged), or the item you received does not match the style that you ordered.


Please note:

All returned and exchanged items must be returned within 40 calendar days. Returns and exchanges will only occur for eligible products. We reserve the right to refuse the return and exchange of any items that have been worn, damaged, or had the tags removed. If an item we receive has been worn, is damaged, has had its tags removed, or is deemed unacceptable for return and exchange, we reserve the right to return to you any non-compliant pieces. All product packaging must be intact and not damaged in any way.


4. Where do I return the item?

After contacting our Customer Service Department and reaching mutual agreement, you will be able to send the item(s) to our headquarters in Brisbane, Australia. Once we have received the item(s), we will confirm the RMA information you have provided and review the condition of the item(s). If all of the relevant criteria have been met, we will process a refund if you have requested one; alternatively, if you have asked for an exchange instead, the replacement will be sent to you from our headquarters.
