Shipping Information

On this page you will find information about how Jinja Gift Shop handles shipping, how much it costs and how long it takes.

Since most of our orders are normally under 1kg all the estimates we will give are for a 1kg gift parcel unless mentioned otherwise.

Delivery times are depended on type of product bought. Most products are available for shipping immediately. Some products, mostly custom products, need some time before they are ready for shipping.

Be sure to select the collect shipping destination in order to get correct price and accurate shipping time estimates.

Shipping within Uganda

If gifts are purchased within Jinja delivery will most probably be done same day. Sometime it might take up to 2 or 3 days depending on product ordered. Custom products and products supplied from outside Jinja normally take sometime to be ready for delivery.

Delivery in Jinja is FREE. Yes! If you buy a gift from within Jinja you don’t pay for delivery. You have it delivered for free up to your doorstep. Pick up can also be organised at a pre-planned location.

Delivery to Kampala costs $8.50 an equivalent of Ugx 30 000. It can take up to 5 days though it normally takes about 2 days. Sometimes deliveries to Kampala are done same day.

Delivery to the rest of Uganda costs $14, about Ugx 50 000. It normally takes about 5 days but we like to give it a week.

Shipping to within Uganda is not very weight conscious. You can easily ship upto 4 kg of a gifts parcel without extra cost. Especially to Kampala and within Jinja.

Shipping to East Africa

Shipping to East Africa covers Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi. Shipping to these countries normally takes less than 7 days. In rare cases it can take up to 15 days.  Weight is not highly restricted, you can easily order up to 2 kg of gifts without paying extra in shipping. Shipping in this region costs $20.

Shipping to the rest of Africa and the world

Shipping to the rest of Africa and the world costs $50. Even a slight increase in weight above 1kg might attract extra costs. Shipping to some places might be cheaper, in that case we refund the extra amount in your Jinja Gift wallet. Sometimes we can give extra gifts to compensate for the change left in shipping. In a few cases we can give change back. Just let us know in case you would like to have your change sent back.

If you are ordering from a region where you believe $50 is a bit high for shipping from Uganda please contact us. We are always trying to find cheaper shipping methods and we are open to suggestion.

We are also happy to have gifts shipped and the shipment costs paid at the recipients end. Let us know before checking out if you have an arrangement where this can be done.
