Even though there are some great things about PupLife green shipping, there are some limitations that customers should take into consideration. First, PupLife does not ship to Alaska, Hawaii or outside the U.S. They also do not ship to Army Post Offices (APO) or Fleet Post Offices (FPOs) at this time. PupLife boasts that most of its products ship out of the warehouse on the same day or at the latest 48 hours. However, there are some exceptions:
Also, customers should know that orders with multiple products with different manufacturers may ship in various packages, and they might arrive on different days. Currently, customers do not have the option for expedited shipping. For customers that change their mind and want to cancel their order, they can if it has not already shipped. However, there will be a $5 processing fee to cover the transaction costs. The fee will be deducted from the refund.
Returns for PupLife dog products must be unused and within 30 days of the date of purchase. If the item is returned after the 30 days, the refund will not be issued. Personalized items (engraved dog tags and collars) are not returnable and Outlet Sale items are final sale. Customers should also note that there is a 20% return processing fee and PupLife does not pay for return shipping. PupLife does not do exchanges. Customers will have to return the unwanted/unused item and then place a new order.
PupLife is missing a few products that many other online pet stores offer. For one, the company has very few products of food or pet medications available. They provide dog treats, but not food. This lack of essential products would take PupLife out of the running for an all-in-one pet shopping experience.
