Buying Guidelines


BohoVinta aims to bring together boho buyers, sellers, and general enthusiasts in the Philippines.

Through our website, we hope to offer a more convenient way of shopping and discovering boho products (and someday, services) by being that one go-to boho place, instead of hopping from one social media account to another, or one general website to another. All these while supporting small businesses and growing the local boho community.

As we are just starting out, we wish for your understanding and cooperation with our current buying and selling process.

1. How to find boho items for sale?

  • From the Header of the website, click the Search icon (i.e. magnifying glass) and type a product name (e.g. earrings, pre-loved). Make sure to view all results always.

  • From the Main Menu (on mobile, it is the three-lined button), click Shop and select a Shop Section (e.g. Fashion) or Category (e.g. Footwear).
  • From the Homepage, you may browse from the Random Collections, by Shop Section, and from the Featured Collection.

  • From the Footer of the website, click your Category of choice under the Shop Sections menu.

2. What buying processes can be done on the website?

The following can be done: browsing of products and merchants, creating a BohoVinta account (anyone can create an account, but most useful for buyers for order monitoring and buyer data storage), and capturing orders (a.k.a. checking out of items).

The following CANNOT be done yet: automatic shipping calculation and payment capture. 

As we grow our boho marketplace and boho home in general, we will be eventually integrating processes and features to make transactions smoother.

While we do certain things manually for now, we sincerely hope for your understanding and cooperation. You could always reach out to us for any inquiries at info@bohovinta.ph.

3. What items are available in the BohoVinta marketplace?

The Shop is currently categorized into five: 

  • Fashion includes clothes, accessories, bags, footwear, activewear, swimwear, and other wearables (e.g. facemask).

  • Décor includes dreamcatchers, macramé, crochet, pots & planters, tapestry, dried plants, and other decors (e.g. wall pieces).

IN PROGRESS: Kindly note that we are carefully filling up these categories with merchants and products. As such, you may see some pages as "Coming Soon." If you know suitable sellers, kindly refer them to us.

Boho services such as tarot card reading, reiki healing, meditation guide, art workshops, and the like would be welcomed someday. Know somebody who does any of the mentioned practices or similar? Kindly refer them to us, too.

4. Are the items sold on-hand or made-to-order/preorder?

Some items are on-hand, while some are made-to-order/preorder. Kindly read product details carefully for this information.

5. Are the items local, handmade, and eco-friendly?

Many products found and being chosen to be on BohoVinta marketplace are local, handmade, and eco-friendly, BUT NOT ALL--since we are primarily curating based on the items being related to the boho aesthetic and lifestyle.

Some items are all of those (local, handmade, etc.), while some are just any of the three. Moreover, there may be items that do not necessarily fall into those classifications, but are still very boho. Please take time to read the product details and even Seller Pages to get this information.

Nevertheless, all the sellers are locally based and by buying from the BohoVinta marketplace, you get to support small boho businesses in the Philippines.

6. How is the buying done?

Here's a simple guide:

1. Checkout items
2. Receive Updated Invoice Email
3. Settle total amount due (BPI, GCash, PayMaya, or PayPal)
4. Send proof of payment to invoice email 
5. Receive your ordered items


Here's the detailed guide:

Browse and add to cart items just like you would in any other e-commerce sites.

Just make sure that you read product details to be well-informed of things like condition (e.g. pre-loved), availability (e.g. made-to-order), and time to receive the item (e.g. some take 2-3 weeks).

When checking out items, know that you could checkout multiple items from multiple sellers in one go. Though keep in mind the varying policies per product and/or seller. Items may not arrive at the same time. Nonetheless, you may definitely do one-time checkout.

Upon checkout, your contact details, shipping address, and preferred mode of payment will be obtained. As you click the final button that says "Complete order," this means that your order has been received and forwarded to sellers.

Shipping fee, which is shouldered by buyers, is NOT YET CALCULATED and shown on the Checkout Page, while Payment Collection is DONE MANUALLY via email correspondence.

Within 48 hours after you checkout the items, you will receive an Updated Invoice Email, stating your updated bill (with added shipping fee and method), the account number for you to send the adjusted bill to, and the date/s when the items are ready to be shipped (e.g. made-to-order products could take more than 2 weeks). 

In case you ordered multiple items from multiple sellers, kindly expect your adjusted bill to have multiple shipping fees added by EACH seller.

You have another 48 hours to settle the total amount due and reply to the invoice email your proof of full payment. As BohoVinta receives this, your order will be tagged as Paid, prompting to seller to fulfill the order (ship out the items already or start creating them if it's made to order).

GOOD TO KNOW: Though some processes are done manually and/or outside the website, all emails you will receive are official notifications from the BohoVinta marketplace.

7. What are the payment options accepted?

The following are currently accepted:
  • GCash
  • PayMaya
  • BPI Online Transfer
  • Paypal
Since some of the items are made-to-order/ preorder, we currently do not offer Cash-on-Delivery.

Payments must be settled and a proof of payment must be sent within 48 hours after receiving the Updated Invoice Email. 

8. How does the order fulfillment work?

Once we receive the proof of payment (reply to Updated Invoice Email) and if the items are on-hand (as stated under Product Policy of every product), your order/s will be shipped already.

For made-to-order items, receipt of payment means a prompt to start creating the item which could take weeks. Kindly review the Ready to Ship Date per seller indicated on the Updated Invoice Email for this information.

Please know that sellers manually book the delivery of your orders but you will still get official email notifications about this.

If you ordered from different sellers, delivery dates of different items may vary.

9. What are the shipping options?

The shipping options vary per seller.

Kindly note that our sellers come from all over the Philippines and may have chosen a specific courier based on what's reliable and available in their area.

Reminder: In case you ordered multiple items from multiple sellers, kindly expect your updated invoice to have multiple shipping fees added by EACH seller. The courier options and dates will also vary per seller.

Here are some examples of what sellers use: LBC, J&T Express, Gogo Xpress, and JRS Express.

The rates may start at an average of PHP 120 for nationwide orders, while delivery time may take 3 to 10 business days (after booking the delivery).

We hope for extra consideration in case of delays during the holidays and rainy season.

10. Do you accept international orders?

We do not necessarily offer this at the moment as we do certain things manually, but we are very open to discussing.

Please email us at info@bohovinta.ph with the screenshot of your cart, containing items you wish to purchase, and we will see what we can do. Note that this will depend if the seller/s can accommodate the order/s.

11. Can I order in bulk?

Yes. Kindly review available stock of the product and duration to prepare each item. Some sellers also offer wholesale items with a minimum order quantity indicated.

Please send us an email at info@bohovinta.ph for any inquiry regarding this.

12. How to request for a return/ refund/ exchange?

Each seller on BohoVinta is independent and has their own product and store policies. Some offer return/ refund/ exchange, while some don't.

To be well-guided, please refer to their Store Policies, accessible from their Seller Page (viewable when you click the brand name at the Product Page).

From there, you may use the "Contact Seller" button to initially get in touch with the seller, which notifies sellers via email. An email address may also have been provided by the seller in their Store Policies.

Though store policies may vary, we highly recommend contacting sellers regarding return/ refund/ exchange within 48 hours upon receipt of your order. We also suggest using the email subject title: Return Request.

In case the seller fails to respond after 48 hours of your email or if you have further clarifications, please contact us at info@bohovinta.ph.

Love, light, and gratitude to you, boho being!
