If you have any questions about your PayPal account and payments you made via UmojaAA, please contact PayPal via the PayPal Help Centre.

UmojaAA is a platform that connects sellers and buyers who meet face to face to transact. Buyers should always inspect items in person to ensure they are happy with the condition and specifics of the item before completing a transaction.

UmojaAA is not party to a transaction between buyer and seller and is not responsible for items that do not match the seller’s description.

If your item didn’t arrive, or wasn’t as described, please report it to us so we can document the incident and take internal action to keep the site safe.
