Not all products on Last Price are sold by Last Price

Last Price is a true online marketplace that supports Nigerian entrepreneurs. Supporting ‘third-party’ sellers means Last Price can offer buyers wider product selection, more choice, increased convenience, and better pricing. To learn more about selling on Last Price, please click here.

Not every order goes perfectly every time, but if things don’t go as planned Last Price is here to help

Generally, Last Price sellers have a remarkable track record. Most orders go wonderfully, but selling online may be new for some sellers and despite best efforts mistakes can sometimes happen. In the rare event things don’t go as planned, Last Price has a number of teams working to help make things right. To contact us, email [email protected] or call 0809 827 5977

If you pay online at checkout before delivery, Last Price can offer maximum protection

Paying for your order in advance means that you’re covered by our Buyer Protection program. When you pay in advance to Last Price, we hold your payment (temporarily) & don’t release it to the seller until you have had a chance to bring up any issues. So when your pre-pay, Last Price can protect you 100% if things somehow don’t go as planned. If you choose to Pay on Delivery, the seller, not Last Price, may have your funds and Last Price may be less able to help

Your feedback matters

When you place an order, you trust the seller to deliver a quality product as described and on time. So Last Price makes it easy for you to research both the item and the seller before you buy. You can read the item’s description and check how past buyers rated and reviewed the seller and the item. When your order is delivered, we will ask you to rate and review the transaction and over time we remove lower performing sellers to make Last Price safer for you

Frequently Asked Questions

If You Have Outstanding Questions or Concerns, Message The Seller Before You Buy

If you have questions/concerns about a product, Last Price makes it easy to contact the seller before you buy — just click the ‘Message Seller’ button.

How does Last Price protect me from fake or substandard products?

Last Price has a formal Authentic Items Policy that prohibits the sale of counterfeit items, and our team continuously monitors items offered for sale. Sellers who are found to violate the policy may be banned from selling on Last Price.

I just received my order and something is wrong, what should I do? What can I expect?

If you recently received your order and something is wrong, please email [email protected] Or contact us now . Depending on the exact issue and whether you paid before delivery or paid on delivery, different resolutions can occur. But in all cases, Last Price will offer support and will try to work with the seller to offer a resolution quickly, such as a repair, replacement, refund upon return, instant refund, or other form of compensation as applicable.

How do I avoid fraudulent individuals posing as genuine sellers?

We take various actions to keep fraudulent individuals out of our community including requiring sellers to undergo verification before listing products, but you can avoid negative fraud-related experiences by 

1) pre-paying and 2) not paying into seller accounts before delivery if you choose to Pay on Delivery (POD).

  • Pre-pay for your order. A great way to safeguard against negative experiences with sellers is to pre-pay for your order online when you checkout. By doing so, Last Price has control of your funds for a limited period and can more easily refund you if things happen to go wrong.

  • If you choose POD, do not pay until you receive your order. If you choose the Pay on Delivery payment method, as a general rule, do not pay directly to sellers until you receive your order. If a seller requests that you pay into his/her account before your order is delivered, please contact [email protected] to verify. Last Price advises that if you do internet bank transfers before delivery, you should pay only into the Last Price accounts listed here.

If you feel that a seller is potentially fraudulent, please contact [email protected]

Can I trust all sellers on Last Price? How do I know which sellers to trust?

Last Price has several processes in place to make sure sellers are safe and worthy of your trust. All sellers go through verification processes and we continuously monitor seller behaviour. In addition, you can inspect a seller’s ratings and reviews — stronger ratings & reviews indicate safer, more trustworthy sellers. Finally, our more established sellers can be identified by a “verified premium seller” badge when you search for an item. Last Price regularly updates the list of verified premium sellers to account for changing seller behaviour. We take our responsibility to provide a safe marketplace very seriously, but sometimes bad behavior does happen. If you feel that a seller has violated your trust by misrepresenting an item or otherwise acting inappropriately, please contact [email protected]
