What shipping methods do you offer? (back to top)

We offer several methods of shipping in order to best suit the customer:

USPS Priority Mail - USPS Priority Mail offers delivery confirmation and basic tracking ability to determine where your package is while en route. Allow 2 to 3 business days in transit once youv'e been notified of your package being shipped.

USPS Express Mail - This service is more expensive, but is guaranteed by the post office to arrive on time. Generally Express Mail is one-business-day delivery (once mailed) to most ZIP codes in the continental U.S.

Local Pickup - If you're in the Houston, Texas area, you may arrange for local pick up by calling 281-433-3290.

Local Delivery If you would like to have your order delivered we are offering local delivery in the Houston area; please call us for a delivery quote at 281-433-3290.

We strive to ship all plant orders within 2 business days of order placement. USPS Priority Mail takes from 1-4 business days to arrive, depending on your location. Average delivery time is 2-3 business days from date of shipment to most locations in the continental U.S. However, our shipping policy may be altered depending on availability of stock, order volume or weather conditions which may adversely affect live goods in transit. Non-perishable goods such as lighting supplies, terrarium construction supplies, or custom built terrarium components may take 7-10 days to ship.

We do our best to post messages regarding any shipping policy exception on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/petflytrap. However, rest assured that when your order is pulled for shipping, you will receive an email from PetFlyTrap.com that the order is being shipped, followed by another email directly from the US Postal Service (www.usps.com) notifying you that the package has been shipped, including any tracking number based on the service selected.

 

What is your refund policy? (back to top)

Refunds are offered if an order has been placed and not yet shipped. If an order has shipped, the package MUST be returned unopened (refused by customer) in order to receive a refund (less shipping fees).

If a customer receives their shipment and is not satisfied, we make every effort to correct the issue. If a refund is requested, we may elect to have the order returned in full in order to process a refund.

 

What are your guarantees? (back to top)

We make every effort to deliver the HIGHEST quality products to our customers. We guarantee that our plants arrive alive and the products are as described. Please note that the plant photographs shown on our web site are meant to demonstrate what the plants look like as they grow, and do not necessarily represent the size or quantity of pitchers/traps/leaves on the plants as shipped. If a plant arrives dead or destroyed due to shipping, we will promptly replace the item with an exact replacement or comparable item when the exact replacement is unavailable, provided we are notified IMMEDIATELY UPON RECEIPT of your order.

Unfortunately, due to many variables, we cannot guarantee any live plant beyond the point it reaches the customer, as we have no control over the quality of care the plant(s) receives after delivery.

In some cases, the customer may be asked to return items they are not satisfied with

 

How long will it take to receive my order? (back to top)

The time in transit depends on the shipping method you selected and your location in the country. Average delivery time to most locations in the continental U.S. is 2-3 business days once your order is shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

 

My order was damaged in shipping. What do I do? (back to top)

Contact us IMMEDIATELY via e-mail at service@petflytrap.com  to arrange for a replacement, or to file an insurance claim (if insured package). You may also telephone us at (281) 433-3290.

 

Is there a warranty on my plant? (back to top)

We guarantee live arrival of the plants; however, due to many variables, we cannot warranty the plant once it's in your care. Please notify us IMMEDIATELY UPON RECEIPT OF YOUR ORDER if plants have been damaged in shipment.

 

Who actually delivers my order? (back to top)

Orders will arrive via the US Postal Service.

 

What happens if my order is returned to your office? (back to top)

On occasion, we receive an order back from a customer with a invalid address, or when the customer fails to claim the package.

We expect our customers to KNOW their own address and make sure their order is being delivered to an address with a valid mail receptacle, and to pick up their package when it arrives.

If a package is returned, and the customer requests redelivery, the fees for shipping will be charged to the customer for the second delivery attempt.

If a customer requests a refund due to a package being returned, we will refund the amount of products less shipping fees.

 

Can I track my order? (back to top)

Yes In the email you receive from the usps.com web site when your package is shipped there will be a tracking number. This is available for all plant orders shipped via USPS Priority Mail and Express Mail. To track a package, visit www.usps.com and insert the provided tracking number in the appropriate tracking box.

 

What credit cards do you accept? (back to top)
