Returns

Q:

I want to return my purchase! What do I do?

A:

If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase from Jimbowee you can return your item(s) for a full refund within 30 days of purchase. (Returns must be unworn, in the state you received them, and in the original packaging.) Some items ship with an attached security tag. Merchandise returned without the original security tag attached or a damaged tag may not qualify for a refund.

The easiest way for you to return the merchandise is to get a pre-paid label by logging in at Jimbowee.com

  1. Go to the website and click on My Account in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Log in to your account using your email address and password.
  3. Click on the order number of the merchandise you wish to return.
  4. Check the box to the left of the item(s) you wish to return and click on the Return Checked Item box.
  5. Choose to have the label displayed for immediate printing or emailed if you are unable to print immediately. Then click ‘Return Item(s)’ at the bottom of the page.
  6. The next page will feature a picture of the item and a barcode.
  7. If you do not have the original packaging, please return by placing a copy of the return confirmation with merchandise inside of a plastic bag and place inside the shipping box.
  8. This page is where you can view for immediate printing. To display your label, click the orange link in the middle of the page that says “Click here to view your return label.”
  9. Now just print it and tape it to your shipping box with clear packing tape. Tada!

If you would rather receive your label via email, instead of selecting the option to print the label, select the option to have a label emailed to you. If for any reason you are unable to print out a label, we would be happy to have the label mailed out to you. Simply let us know by email, live chat, or phone and we will gladly send it to you right away. Please note that if you choose to have the label send to you by USPS “snail mail”, it may take 7-10 days for it to arrive.

Make sure the merchandise is in its original packaging, (e.g., shoebox), and place it in a shipping box. Attach the label to the sealed box. Be sure to cover any old labels with the new one, or just peel them off. A black marker can also be used to cover any existing bar codes.

You may drop off your return at any authorized UPS shipping location, but please do not drop your return off at a dropbox. To find the nearest authorized shipping location, please visit www.ups.com.

For the vast majority of returns, it takes about 5-10 Business Days for us to get your package at the fulfillment center, inspect your return, process it into inventory, and complete your refund. If the refund is being issued to a credit card, depending on your credit card company, it may take an additional 2-10 Business Days after your credit is applied for it to post to your account.

Rewards Members—WE’VE GOT GOOD NEWS! Gold, Platinum, and Elite Jimbowee Rewards members enjoy instant refunds! From the first scan at UPS—we’ll issue your refund, so you can skip the 5-10 Business Days.

Q:

I would like to return a gift that was sent to me. How do I do that?

A:

Jimbowee.com is very sorry that your gift did not work for you. Please call the Jimbowee Customer Loyalty Team at +27764293989 for assistance in returning the item. They will need some information in order to pull up the account that the gift was purchased on. You will have to provide their phone number, first and last name, or email address. Any gift item being returned will be refunded to the original purchaser’s method of payment. However, we would be happy to assist you with a gift return. When a gift return is processed, we will provide you with a return label to send the item back. Once we have received the item and processed the return, we will issue a gift certificate to your account. Please call the Jimbowee Customer Loyalty Team at +27764293989 for assistance.

Q:

Can I exchange my order instead of returning it?

A:

As a Jimbowee.com customer, you have the option of exchanging an eligible order instead of returning it for a refund. The funds from the original order will be transferred to an e-Gift Card when the exchange is processed. If the exchange order is returned, we will issue the refund back to an e-Gift Card for the full amount (minus shipping). An exchange also requires the original order to be returned to Jimbowee within 14 days. If we do not receive the original order within 14 days, the credit card on file will be charged the full amount of the replacement order. Please give us a call, chat, or email, and we will gladly share more details on how to process an exchange. Our Customer Loyalty Team is available 24/7 and more than happy to help!

Q:

I printed out my label and misplaced it. How can I retrieve it again?

A:

We are more than happy to help you print out a new label. The easiest way for you to get another pre-paid label is by logging in at Jimbowee.com.

   1. Go to the website and click on My Account in the upper right-hand corner.
   2. Log in to your account using your email address and password.
   3. Choose the order number of the merchandise you wish to return.
   4. Underneath the Status and Tracking column, you will see a link that says, “Display Your Return Label”
   5. Your label will appear for you to print.

Q:

How long does it take for me to get a refund?

A:

For the vast majority of returns, it takes about 10-14 Business Days for us to get your package at the fulfillment center, inspect your return, process it into inventory, and complete your refund. If the refund is being issued to a credit card, depending on your credit card company, it may take an additional 2-10 Business Days after your credit is applied for it to post to your account.

Q:

Do your pre-paid labels cover international returns?

A:

Regrettably, our pre-paid labels do not cover the price for international returns. To use our pre-paid labels, shipments must be sent from the United States.

Q:

I am returning an item purchased with a Gift Certificate or Gift Card, how does that work?

A:

Orders with Gift Certificates/Gift Cards as payment will be refunded back to a Gift Certificate for your convenience. New Gift Certificate codes will be emailed to your email address on file.

Q:

I only see the option to return my order through UPS on the website. Am I able to return through USPS instead?

A:

If you process the return by yourself through our website, unfortunately, UPS is the only option for most customers. We provide shipping labels using UPS for easy, fast and secure shipping and package tracking. However, we understand that UPS isn’t always convenient for everyone and we want to make returning to Jimbowee as easy as possible. If you would rather receive a USPS return label instead of a UPS return label, simply contact us and we’ll be happy to send you one!

Q:

I want to know if you carry a specific brand/color/size/width?

A:

Try clicking on the Brands button located at the top of each page – you will be taken to a page where you can view all brands that we are currently offering. Please check back often since we add new brands on a daily basis! From the brands page, you can select a brand that interests you and narrow your search based on your specific interests.

Q:

Do you do back orders?

A:

No. We do not do backorders. If an item is out of stock the Jimbowee Customer Loyalty Team will notify you as soon as possible and ask if you would like a replacement item. Out of stock orders will be canceled unless a replacement item is requested.

Q:

Do you have a catalog?

A:

No. Currently, we have a ‘virtual’ catalog. In order to ensure that our customers have access to the most current styles, prices, sizes, and overall selection, we do not publish a catalog that you may purchase directly from us. Plus, with all the styles that we carry, a catalog would be as big as a phone book! If there is a particular shoe or style of shoe that you are interested in, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help you locate it.

Do you match prices if an item goes on sale after my purchase?

A:

If the price on our website drops within 10 days of purchasing the item, we will be happy to refund you the difference in price. Simply contact our Customer Loyalty Team by chat, phone, or email, and they’ll be happy to assist you.

Q:

How do I unsubscribe from any of your mailing lists?

A:

There are two quick and easy ways to unsubscribe from our mailing list.

  1. Call us at +27764293989 and one of our customer service representatives will take care of your request over the phone.
  2. Email us at admin@jimbowee.com and one of our customer service representatives will unsubscribe your email address. Q:

How do I use my Gift Certificate/Coupon Code?

A:

Using your code is as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Place all of the items in your shopping cart and proceed to checkout.
  2. Under Your Payment Information, find the box labeled “Redeem Gift Cards and Coupons”.
  3. Enter your code in the box and click “Apply“.Q:

I tried to check out and the item in my shopping cart disappeared, what happened?

A:

We are sorry that you were not able to complete your order. The selection on Jimbowee.com is live and reflects what is in stock at that moment.  Placing an item in your shopping cart does not guarantee your right to purchase that item.  Until you have completed the checkout process, another customer may purchase the item even if it is in your cart.  If that happens, you will receive a message on the shopping cart page informing you that the item is no longer available and that you should remove it from your cart. 

Q:

Is the item I want going to go to sell soon?

A:

Unfortunately, Jimbowee.com does not know if an item will go on sale or be marked down until it actually happens. 

It is possible for different colors within the same style to have different prices. For instance, if a blue bag is selling better than a yellow one, one might discount the yellow bag to boost sales.

Q:

My email address has changed. How do I update this information to my current account?

A:

You are welcome to update your e-mail address by logging in to your account online. The best way to do this is to take the following steps:

  1. Visit the website and click on “My Account” in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
  2. Log in to your account by typing your previous e-mail address and password.
  3. Once logged in, click on “Edit Profile” towards the right-hand side of the page.
  4. Type your new e-mail address on lines 3 and 4.
  5. Verify your “Current password” at the bottom.
  6. Click “Update Now.”
  7. Your e-mail will be updated.

Also, we would be happy to update your e-mail address for you over the phone. For security purposes, we ask that you call the Jimbowee Customer Loyalty Team at +274293989 to confirm your account information. Upon verification, we will be glad to take care of your request immediately. Please let us know if there is anything else, we can help you with.

Q:

The item I want is out of stock. What do I do now?

A:

Jimbowee.com is very sorry that the item that you need is out of stock. Underneath the size selection dropdown menu, there is a link that says “Don’t see your size?”. If you click on that link, you will see a popup that will let you add your email address to our notification list. When your size, color, and style become available you will receive an automated email sent by our system letting you know that your item is available for purchase. The notification list does not hold an item for you, and it does not obligate you to make a purchase so you are welcome to shop around while you wait. Items are available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, so please make sure that you place your order quickly.

Q:

Do you accept orders through VOIP?

A:

While we are happy to hear from our international customers, we are unable to accept VOIP(voice over internet protocol) calls at this time. We have allowed VOIP calls in the past, however, we found it limited the service we were able to provide. You may call us from any landline or cellular phone at +27764293989. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.

Payment Information

Q:

Do you accept international credit cards?

Q:

A:

No. At this time Jimbowee.com does not accept Cashier’s Checks or Money Orders.

Q:

Do you charge sales tax on any item?

A:

Jimbowee Retail LLC collects tax on orders shipped to Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

If you are shipping to any of these states, any applicable tax will be calculated on your merchandise total and displayed on your final order confirmation. Please keep in mind, if you live in a state that does not impose a sales tax, you may still see the tax calculated on your order if shipped to a state listed above.

Q:

What forms of payment do you accept?

A:

Jimbowee.com currently accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express for all orders.

Q:

What can cause my order to be delayed?

A:

1. If the billing information you provided does not match what your bank has on file (including the address and telephone number), your order may be delayed.

2. We all love sending gifts to others and ourselves as much as we love receiving them. However, if you are shipping to an address other than your billing address, your order may be delayed.

Q:

Can I pay with multiple Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover Pre-Paid Gift Cards?

A:

Any pre-paid gift card with a Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover logo / insignia on it will be processed like an actual credit / debit card and only one credit card can be used per order. If a single pre-gift card does not cover the total of your order, we suggest using the balance on the pre-paid gift card to purchase a Jimbowee Gift Certificate. The Jimbowee Gift Certificate can then be used along with a credit card or pre-paid gift card to complete the order. If you have multiple pre-paid gift cards, you will need to purchase a separate Jimbowee Gift Certificate for each. If you need any help with purchasing the Jimbowee Gift Certificates or placing an order, please give our Customer Loyalty Team a call, and we will be happy to help! Please also note that in order to use the pre-paid gift card on Jimbowee, it will need to be registered or activated by following the instructions on the pre-paid gift card itself or on the card’s packaging. Also, some cards may not be eligible for online purchases. Please refer to the company that issued the card for more details.
