ShopZoo FAQs

FAQ

Q:        Where’s my order?

A:         Check your order confirmation email (everyone gets one) for the tracking number.  This has great information and will tell you exactly where your package is.  We ship to the address you entered on the shipping page so if it’s been delivered and you still don’t have it, check the address you gave us.  If all else fails, you’ll need to contact your local post office.  

Q:        What if I want to return the item I purchased?

A:         If you don’t like the color, if the size was wrong, or you just changed your mind, send the item(s) back on your dime.  Once we receive it, we will refund the purchase price.  

Q:        What if my order arrived damaged?

A:         Send us an email at shopzoo@sandiegozoo.org with the details, including your order number.  We will contact you with further instructions

 Q:        Can I have my order shipped to an international address?

A:         Most of our products can be shipped to international addresses. Recipients are responsible for all customs duties or taxes in that country, which are collected by the carrier upon delivery. Shipping rates are calculated based on the weight of the order and its destination.

To determine shipping rates, simply begin the checkout process. After entering the address information, you can review your order with the shipping charges added.

 Q:        How do I pay for my order?

 Q:        Is it safe for me to pay by credit card?

A:         Yes.  ShopZoo secure server software uses industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology.
