Group Buys

 A Group Buy is a purchase between two or more people that will have their orders combined into one shipment in order to save on shipping. One person, the Coordinator, is responsible for accepting the package and distributing items to the other group buy members. We ask that all group buy coordinators have the day free to accept the package, and be willing to work to get it from the carrier if there is a delivery issue. There are often too many orders in a group buy too risk them sitting outside a home, or the delivery otherwise missed. Sorry about that restriction, but we must be firm on it. Free Shipping Applies to all group orders over $200. We will contact you if it falls short and we have a shipping charge. The discrepancy between the individual free shipping rate and the higher group buy rate is because group buys cost significantly more to ship than individual orders.No discounts or promotions can be used in combination with a group buy. That includes any and all discounts you may know of, please tell your members the same.  Because no one goes by this rule, any losses or refunds owed because of shortages or losses will come from the disallowed discounts first. We reserve the right to bill for the disallowed discount as well. Sorry about this, but we have to limit our losses in group buys, which are almost always more expensive to ship then what they we charge.

In order to make life easier for those coordinating group buys, we have developed a system for your orders. Simply let us know some basic info about the people handling the group buy, and then sit back and let the members order for themselves from the site. We will seperately package each order, and place the names of the individuals on the bags so all you have to do is hand them out when the members arrive. Please remember though, certain species need to be in the tank by a certain time, and do not fare well in extended trips. Because of this, we ask that each Group Buy Coordinator be home during to receive the package on the first attempt, and impress upon their members that fragile time sensitive species must be picked up and cared for in a timely manner.
