Shipping Claims

We promise to find solutions to any damage that arises as a result of shipping, including part replacement and any shipping charges resulting from returns and exchanges of damaged items. We will assist customers with filing a claim in the event of loss, theft, or denial signature. However, we are not responsible for any lost or stolen merchandise. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to contact the courier company about any loss or delivery disputes. The purchaser is encouraged to dispute any credit card charges with their credit card company for undelivered merchandise. Doing so allows time to work with the courier company, your local authorities, and insurance company regarding any matters of theft.

Credit Card Processing

All credit card processing will be performed by Wild and Lovely, on behalf of Sleepyhead SA. The charge on your statement will appear from Wild and Lovely. We do not verify billing addresses with credit cards, and if the address you enter does not match the credit card record, we will not be held responsible.

Return Policy

We only accept returns for all products purchased in South Africa on the online shop within 30 days from the time of purchase. Returned products must be NEW, UNUSED, and in their original packaging with ALL labels and hangtags still attached. You must contact us for a returns number prior to your return and provide proof of purchase or an order confirmation number before the return can be authorized.

Please note:

Opening a box to verify contents, size, or colour does not disallow a return. Products showing signs of use or missing packaging or labels etc. are not considered new, and are thus non-returnable.

The condition and packaging of a returned product must be as it was when received, complete with all labels, original box(es), original packaging, and manuals/instructions.

Please use care when opening your product(s) so that you remain entitled to a refund should you chose to return your product(s).
