I agree to the below terms and conditions to complete the online checkout process.
You will see a “Thank You” order confirmation page immediately after placing your order successfully. An order confirmation email is also sent to your inbox if your email address was entered correctly.
Please check your spam and promotional emails, or refresh your inbox if it doesn’t show within a few minutes after order placement. If you still do not see an order confirmation email, please contact us.
You are also able to view your order’s status and tracking information in your account orders.
If you wish for a paper receipt, please print the confirmation email for your records as we do not print invoices to save resources.
We are not liable for any incorrect information given to us. Thank you for understanding!
You may request an order cancellation with a -5% card processing fee in your account orders or you may also request a cancellation by contacting us. WE CANNOT APPROVE ORDER CANCELLATION REQUESTS IF THE ORDER IS ALREADY PROCESSED.
If your request is approved, all items in the order will be immediately restocked on the website for anyone to purchase.
We are not liable for incorrect information given to us, thank you for understanding.
Why the -5% fee?
Card processing companies do not refund their processing fees once an order has been placed, which costs up to 5% of the total charge.
We cannot combine orders, apply incompatible coupon codes, add/subtract things in your order, or change anything major to your order after placement.
If the change is something minor (like an incorrect house number on the shipping address), please contact us as soon as possible! However, if the shipping address needs to go to a completely different state or province, or if items in the order need to be changed, you will need to request an order cancellation and re-order (see Order Cancellations tab above).
Your order will be shipped out as-is unless your cancellation request is submitted and approved in your account orders. Please see Order Cancellations tab above to learn how to request an order cancellation.
We cannot be held liable for any incorrect or omitted order information given to us. Thank you for understanding.
Order Hold Requests?
We CANNOT hold any order upon request, NOR ship it out at a different date than our processing time.
Please only place an order when you are ready for the order to be shipped within our processing time.
Delivery Processing & Time
If there is an issue with your order, we may need to contact you before shipping your order, at which point your order is put on an emergency hold until we can determine the best course of action.
Our current processing time for orders is 1-4 business days.
Choosing a faster shipping option does not affect processing time.
Business days are Monday-Friday, excluding holidays.
UPS Express options (2 day and overnight) do not deliver on weekends.
UPS will not ship to P.O. (Post Office) boxes.
Shipment & Tracking Confirmation
After your order has been processed in 1-4 business days, you will receive a shipment confirmation email that includes your tracking number and tracking link for watching your package move with postal carrier updates through the chosen postal service’s direct website.
If you still cannot find your order and/or shipment confirmation emails in your inbox, promotional emails, or spam folders after the 5th business day from placing your order, you may check your account orders or contact us to confirm your order shipment and tracking information. Please make sure the email entered during checkout is correct!
If you think your email address or any other information was entered incorrectly, please contact us as soon as possible.
Once your order has been marked as delivered successfully by the postal provider, you will also receive a delivery confirmation email. Please note that sometimes postal carriers will scan packages as “delivered” a couple days before actual delivery. If your order still has not arrived 2 business days after being marked as delivered, then please see shipping issue tabs below.
Incorrect Shipping Address
It is very important that you request a shipping address change or full cancellation of your order before it is processed (see Order Cancellations tab above), or else your order will be shipped out as-is. You must request a cancellation of your order in your account orders or contact us.
If your order has already been shipped with the incorrect address on the label, you will need to contact the postal provider with your tracking number for further information. You may request a “change of destination” or a “return to sender” with your postal provider at this point, we cannot do this for you.
USPS Customer Service Phone Number: 1 (800) 275-8777
UPS Customer Service Phone Number: 1 (800) 742-5877
If we receive a “return to sender” package due to insufficient or incorrect address reasons as stated on the tracking or package return, we will contact the customer to request an attempt another resend with a new shipping label to the same address (or if the shipping address needs to be changed, the customer will cover the new shipping label costs). If the package is returned to us again after the second sending attempt, then we will process it as a return and this will incur a -15% restock and refund fee, NOT refunding shipping and handling costs. This is an issue you can handle with your local post office.
Please note that we are not responsible nor liable for any incorrect information given to us.
Report An Issue
Any report will require one of the following pieces of information for our team to assist you: Customer’s Name, Email Address, or Order Number
Review our policies for your specific concern below before contacting us.
Please note that we, as the sender, are not responsible for any postal carrier delays when the package was shipped out correctly on our end. Even though a late arrival situation is out of our control, we will do everything we can to assure our customers in an upsetting situation. Please contact us if your order has not moved from the last tracking status checkpoint after 7 days (14 days for international orders) and no later than 20 days (30 days for international orders).
Returned To Sender: If we receive a “return to sender” package due to insufficient or incorrect address reasons as stated on the tracking or package return, we will contact the customer to offer an attempt at one more resend with a new shipping label to the same address (or if the shipping address needs to be changed, the customer will cover the new shipping label costs). If the package is returned to us again after the second sending attempt, then we will process it as a return and this will incur a -15% restock and refund fee, NOT refunding shipping and handling costs. This is an issue customer needs to handle with their local post office when we send a package according to the information given.
Order issues for packages presumed to be lost by the carrier (where the status is not “delivered”) must be filed no sooner than 7 days after the last tracking update for United States domestic shipments (15 days for international shipments, including Canada) and within 20 days from the last shipping status checkpoint.
Please note that we are not liable nor responsible for any incorrect information given to us.
International Package Stuck In Customs? When a package is stuck in international borders/customs, the customer’s next step is to pay the customs fees in order to receive the package. If we are replacing something the customer has already paid customs on, we can approve and pay customs the second time under our discretion. Please note that we are not liable for any shipment contents that are not approved by a customer’s country or province customs agencies. All international customers should check the acceptable and unacceptable products with their country’s customs agencies before attempting to order any products.
If your order is damaged in transit to where the products are not usable, clear photos of the packaging and item(s) must be shared with us no later than 7 days from when it was marked as delivered. You may contact us to send us your photographic proofs including all items damaged as well as the entire exterior AND interior of the package box.
If the customer inputs the correct address at checkout and the postal service has proof that the package was delivered to the wrong address, we will consider this as “stolen” proof.
If your order with “delivered” shipping status is still not found at the shipping address 5 days after being marked “delivered” status, please first thoroughly search around the premises, then check with your local postal office, apartment manager, and neighbors. If none of these result in finding your package after 5 business days from being marked as “delivered” status, please contact us. ALL stolen reports must be made within 15 days from the delivery status update.
- At our discretion, we may require an online notarized statement when the customer’s package is marked as delivered. If requested, the customer will be given clear steps to complete this requirement via the reporting process.
Filing a Police Report or In-Person Notarized Statement
- At our discretion, we may require a police report or in-person notarized statement form when the customer’s package is marked as delivered.
- If requested, the customer will file the police report/notarized form and include an explanation that Perma-Earth is requesting proof of a stolen package marked as delivered. To process the order issue, Perma-Earth is requiring a police report/notarized form.
- Send Perma-Earth the police report PDF & number in the order issue (if a notarized statement was requested, send over a screenshot and details of the notary form signed by a notary public).
- Upon request, we may require additional documentation such as proof of identity, a notarized statement, address, etc.
Note: Depending upon the jurisdiction, a false police report may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony.
We offer refunds on returns of any unused, non-customized, or replacements of defective physical products received back to us within 30 days of the order’s delivery date or in-store purchase.* Company-approved and successfully returned defective products will be replaced or refunded, including USPS Ground Advantage return shipping costs for shipped items.
We cannot accept USED returns on non-defective items, even if “only a little” was used. If an attempt is made to return a used item, we will simply return it to the address of origin.
If you wish to initiate a return, please contact us with the following information: include your name and order number and the products and quantities you returning – we will be happy to give you further information on the next steps (found below in The Return Process tab). In non-defective cases, the customer is responsible for purchasing the return shipment costs and processing the return themselves.
*Please note that the term “defective” is at our sole discretion considering our liability waiver below. We accept returns on any non-used or company-approved defective items successfully given back to us in original condition within 30 days of purchase or delivery date shown on the postal tracking information. A return of a non-defective product is subject to a -15% restock fee and buyer also must cover return shipping costs. Returns are refunded to payment method associated with the order and do not include the order’s original shipping costs. Shipped packages’ shipping costs are non-refundable.
There are some items that returns are NOT acceptable such as gift certificates, digital downloads, and wholesale applications.
Please review our return process below.
What is considered a “defective” item?
A complication that impedes a product’s practical usefulness or is considered to be a safety hazard.
Why do we charge a -15% restock fee on all successful returns?
Card processing companies do not refund their processing fees once an order has been placed, which costs up to 5% of the charge. Our team members have also pulled, processed, packaged, labeled, and taken the order to the post office, and now have to process the refund and restock. Our restock fee helps to cover the labor and fuel costs associated with the order. When we correctly fulfilled the order as requested and as described without any manufacturer errors, we will not drive up the costs for all to cover these return instances. Shopping online has risks for both consumers and sellers alike, therefore this policy helps both to share the costs.
Why do we not refund the shipping costs, nor pay for the shipping on all successful returns?
When a customer purchases a shipping method during checkout, they are essentially paying us to pay the postal service agency what is owed to ship the item. The postal service will NEVER refund their successful services for shipping a package.
If a customer returns a product that is unacceptable or past the 30-day window, what happens?
We will return the package or products back to the address of origin, at no extra charge!
READ THE REQUIREMENTS TAB ABOVE FIRST
If you feel that your item has a manufacturer defect, please contact us first along with video or photo proof.
How To Return – 3 STEPS
STEP 1: Properly re-package your items and your order return details.
- If you have not opened your package yet, you may take it straight back to the mail carrier for a FREE “Return to Sender” request within 7 days of delivery and contact us with your order return information (order number, order name, and reason for return) – that’s it!
- If your package has been opened, place your items back into the same box or in another suitable sturdy box — the one your order came in can easily be reused — along with any necessary packing materials. Remove any prior shipping label information from used boxes. If your item came tightly wrapped, taped, and securely packaged, please be sure to do the same when you return the item. We are not responsible for improperly packaged returns that are damaged or lost during return shipment, please make sure your shipment is properly insured when you purchase the return label.
- Enclose your order number or name, along with the items and quantities of return, and why you are requesting a refund, or contact us with this information. If your return is sent back without this information, we will not be able to process your refund.
STEP 2: Take your package to the carrier of your choice.
Mail your package to the following address:
- Perma-Earth LLC
780 W Green St.
Scottsburg, IN 47170
- Be sure that your return is properly insured and trackable so you’ll be able to guarantee that your package arrives as expected.
- You will be responsible for the shipping cost and results of your return on non-defective products, so please make sure that your package is properly insured in case something happen during transit.
- Keep all tracking information until your return has been processed.
STEP 3: It can take up to 7 business days from our receipt of the package for you to see the refund in your payment method, detailed below.
Once we successfully receive your return, we’ll send you a Return Order Confirmation email with all the details.
How will I be refunded?
All successful returns will be processed back to the original payment method subject to a -15% restock fee within 7 business days of receiving return. Refund amounts will not include shipping charges – these are non-refundable. All applicable promotions, discounts, offers, free items (as part of a qualifying purchase) and coupons granted at the time of purchase will be prorated and applied to the refund amount.
Why do we charge a 15% restock fee on all successful returns?
Card processing companies do not refund their processing fees once an order has been placed, which costs up to 5% of the charge. Our team members have also pulled, processed, packaged, labeled, and taken the order to the post office, and now have to process the refund and restock. Our restock fee helps to somewhat cover the labor and fuel costs associated with the order. When we correctly fulfilled the order as requested and as described without any manufacturer errors, we will not drive up the costs for all to cover these return instances. Shopping online has risks for both consumers and sellers alike, therefore this policy helps both to share the costs.
Why do we not refund the shipping costs, nor pay for the shipping on all successful returns?
When a customer purchases a shipping method during checkout, they are essentially paying us to pay the postal service and the shipping insurance agency what is owed to ship the item. When we pay the postal service and the shipping insurance agency to ship the item out, neither the postal service, nor the insurance agency will refund their services for shipping and covering the item.
If a customer returns a product in unacceptable condition, defective was not as described, or past the 30-day window, what happens?
We will return the package or products back to the address of origin, at no extra charge!
