We dispatch orders 6 days a week. We do not dispatch on Sundays and Public Holidays.
Sankofabooks.store is committed to fulfil all customer orders in the shortest possible time. We generally estimate that most orders will be delivered within 3-5 days if outside Accra/Tema (via EMS of Ghana Post) and 3-7 days for most international destinations, via DHL Global Delivery. We deliver within 12 hours in Accra/Tema if items are in stock and 2-3 days if products need to be ordered from publishers/suppliers.
Although we regularly dispatch orders on the next working day, unfortunately we cannot give you a delivery window or guarantee delivery on a particular day. This is because we want to ensure that our environmental impact is as low as possible. So instead of sending a vehicle, say across Accra/Tema, for one delivery, we group deliveries together to ensure a minimal footprint.
We dispatch at 7.30am on each dispatch day so orders received after this time goes into the next dispatch window.
If you have any special instructions, don’t worry. Just leave us a note in the ‘Customer Provided Note’ section at checkout or email us and we’ll endeavour to follow.
