3. Enter your PIN to get your Pending Approval List
4. Select pending transaction to approve
5. Select Option 1 YES to approve the transaction or Option 2 NO to reject the transaction.
Products with no prices
Some vendors on GWM would prefer to be contacted directly for prices of their goods and services. Also, some services can only be priced based on your requirements. In such a case, kindly navigate to the ‘Seller’s Info’ section- beneath the product page and next to reviews, for contact details of the vendor. Please don’t forget to bargain properly like we all do with taxi drivers.
Delivery & Shipping
How do I get items after purchase?
There is an optional delivery service on behalf of all GWM vendors. Otherwise, vendors would handle deliveries themselves. Before paying for a purchase, you must fill out the ‘Billing details’ and ‘Additional information’ sections. You will receive a call if delivery is applicable and is ready to be done.
How long does a delivery take?
Deliveries are solely dependent on vendors and the type of product/service involved. Therefore, per your specifications and the vendor’s ability to deliver, it could be anything from 24 to 72 hours. Further details would be discussed after payment.
Please note that the date for your wedding/event also affects deliverables.
Payment on delivery and delivery costs
Payments for goods and services on GWM are usually done online. However, per agreements with some particular vendors, you can pay on delivery. It would be indicated on such vendors’ shops. Also, delivery costs vary per location. So if you live in Tamale then sorry in advance. These costs would be communicated to you before deliveries are done.
How does shipping work?
Currently, vendors are resonsible for all delivery and shipping options. Therefore for shipping, kindly fill out the ‘Billing Details’ form and add “For Shipping outside Ghana” in your Additional Information area. You would be contacted shortly after by the vendor for more details.
Orders & Refunds
How do I get the receipts for my orders?
Receipts for every purchase are recorded and kept in the ‘Orders’ section of when you login into your account. Ghana Wedding Market also emails you a virtual receipt whenever you make an order/purchase. Downloadable versions of your invoices are also generated when making a purchase online. The file is not that big so you don’t worry about your phone’s memory.
Tracking orders- both users and vendors
On the GWM platform, proper records of orders/purchases are kept. Check the dashboard for the option ‘orders’. There you would find a complete table of all orders you have made so far. When products have been delivered, it would be indicated in the records. For vendors, a notification would be sent to your dashboard anytime an order/purchase is made from your shop. So be woke like you do for mobile money alerts!
Cancellation of a purchase
Currently, purchases made CANNOT be reversed or cancelled online. Please we are sorry o don’t be angry. However, you can contact Ghana Wedding Market for an agreement to be reached on a refund.
Refund and Return policy
We don’t have stiff necks, we are down to earth and we like gari and beans too, so please note that vendors on GWM determine their own return policies just like the rest of the world. Such return policies would be indicated on the vendor’s product page. Buyers are advised to clarify return policy issues such as cost of returns, who bears the cost of returns, timelines for returns, etc, before purchasing any item.
My account (Users & Vendors)
After booking to plan an event, what next?
You can book WeLoveGhanaWeddings to plan your wedding, engagement, birthday parties, bachelorette, pre engagement, pre birthday, pre honeymoon, pre dating, in fact everything some. Do this on the ‘Event Planning‘ page. After filling the form, GWM would contact you for more details.
Reviewing and Approving products
As a vendor, GWM has to approve your product before it is published on the Wedding Shop. Review and approval takes approximately 24 hours. GWM has strict quality and aesthetic standards for posting products on the platform and we reserve the right to approve or disapprove product(s) that do not meet such standards. No ‘Azonto’ pictures please, quality pictures and products sell faster!
So as the saying goes, Procrastination is the thief of time and time is money! Vendors are advised to renew their membership subscriptions at least 10 weekdays before expiration. The registration and verification process can take up to 10 weekdays and we would rather avoid down times to vendors. No dull things, look sharp!
Service provider registration
The Service Provider Registration section gives information on what vendor sign-up packages we have available. For the Faith package, see Ghana Wedding Market ‘in chambers’ for the price. Please note that before you can be approved as a vendor, you have to buy a service provider package first.
