Dry Good Order Shipping Schedule
Dry goods are any products we sell that are not living. This includes habitat supplies, substrates, lighting, dry pelleted foods, canned foods, etc. Most orders placed before 2pm ET on business days ship the same day. Depending on the shipping method the order will take 1-7 business days to arrive, once shipped.
Some dry goods products qualify for free shipping all the time. These products are labelled as such on our site. Products ordered with the Free Shipping method selected will ship ground service with a carrier of Josh's Frogs choice (based on the weight of package, location, etc.). Free shipping is only available to customers in areas within the contiguous US.
For orders to Alaska & Hawaii, shipping is based on distance and weight of total order. Simply add the products to your cart and use the shipping estimator to calculate shipping.
