Thank you for visiting and shopping on MYDAWA, the following are the terms and conditions that constitute our Shipping Policy.

Shipping Policy

Shipment time

At MYDAWA we aim to dispatch all orders as quickly as possible to ensure that for all orders made between 8:00 am and 8.00 p.m your purchase should be delivered as follows:

  • Nairobi County within 4 hours
  • Greater Nairobi Metropolitan Area within 6 hours (Orders placed past 6pm will be delivered the next day by midday).
  • Rest of Kenya within 24 hours

For purchases made after 8.00 p.m your purchase will be delivered

  • Nairobi County by 10.00 am the next day.
  • Greater Nairobi Metropolitan by midday the next day
  • Rest of Kenya within 36 hours

You will receive an order confirmation on your mobile phone with the order number. If you do not receive the order number, then your order has not been confirmed by our system. There will also be a confirmation on the website under "your orders" section.

You will receive a notification when your order has been dispatched. Our delivery rider will also contact you to confirm delivery.

For upcountry deliveries, these will be made by Fargo Courier

If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed. If this is the case, we will endeavour to contact you via email or telephone.

Payment Method 

After reviewing your order with our delivery agent, you will be able to pay via mobile money (specifically M-pesa). The payment process is very smooth as you only need to enter your MPESA pin to complete the transaction. 
Please ensure to load your M-pesa prior to the delivery agent getting to your location. Ensure you are available to pick up your order as the delivery agent has only a 5-minute window before they proceed with other orders. Please note that sealed items cannot be unsealed before you pay. 

Pay-on-delivery restriction: This only applies to deliveries within Nairobi.   

For Prescription Orders:

Please ensure you personally receive your order to receive any counselling on medicine administration and handover the original prescription to the delivery rider as you receive up your order. We remind you that this is a legal obligation for the receipt of all prescription-only medication.

For Insurance Orders:

Ensure you personally receive your order to receive counselling on medicine administration and process your biometrics against your insurance card. In addition, please handover the original prescription and Claim Form to the rider. Without both the original prescription and claim form, your insurer may decline to cover your medication.
