Return Policy - Your Satisfaction is Our First Priority
The ProbioticSmart.com family of websites (PSCLife.com, PSCPets.com, and PSCFarm.com) is committed to providing the highest quality products and customer care at the lowest price possible. Your satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us.
We understand it is sometimes necessary to exchange or return an item, therefore it is our goal to ensure that our customers are completely satisfied with their purchase.
However, to ensure the quality and safety of the products that we sell we cannot accept returns of the following items:
- Items that are classified as hazardous materials, including flammable liquids
- Any Product that is missing the UPC
- Any cold shipping products
If you are not completely satisfied and the product is not a product that is listed above as not returnable, you may return your purchase within 4 weeks of receipt for a refund or replacement. Method of refund will be determined by the original method of payment. Full or partial credit may issued depending on the condition of the product. Credit issuance will be 7-10 business days from the date we receive the returned product. Sorry, shipping charges will not be refunded.
Processing Time - Our goal is to process all orders within 72 hours of receipt. Orders are processed during our regular business hours of Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM CST (excluding holidays). We always attempt to ship your order within 3 business days. Most orders placed will be shipped on the next business day but will be dependent on the size of the order. Orders over 500 lbs may exceed this time-frame. Most orders placed before 1:00 PM CST will be shipped the next business day.
Standard Shipping - ProbioticSmart offers standard, ground shipping via UPS, FedEx Home Delivery, or USPS. ProbioticSmart reserves the right to chose the ground shipping method based on the address provided. Most orders leave our facility within 3 business days, provided the items are in stock, there are no problems with the payment verification or the shipping address, and order size is under 150 lbs. Orders over 150 lbs will be shipped via freight shipping. With standard ground shipping, you will usually receive your order within 1-5 business days of it leaving our facility. Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico addresses will generally take approximately 7-10 business days.
P.O. Boxes and APO/FPO - We are able to ship to P.O. Boxes and APO/FPO addresses at this time, but only via USPS Priority Mail. If you provided a P.O. Box or an APO/FPO address but chose another shipping method, we will ship your order via Priority Mail. You will either be issued a refund if the shipping cost is less or be charged the difference if shipping via USPS Priority Mail is more expensive than the method you picked. We will notify you of this change by phone if you provided the number during the checkout process, or by email if that is all you provided.

Cold Shipping Policy
Shipping can be an obstacle when trying to keep temperature sensitive items cool. Although products of this nature are usually designed to withstand short transit in warmer temperatures, extended exposure can lead to reduced product quality. We want to offer you the ability to help ensure the best experience possible.
As a complementary measure to our customers, ProbioticSmart.com will send all cold shipping products in a thermal envelope with an ice pack. This is designed to keep your product cool for up to the first 24 hours of transit. ProbioticSmart.com also offers upgraded packaging and expedited shipping methods to reduce exposure to heat. These upgrades include 2 Day Air and Next Day Air Saver shipping from UPS, and insulated foam packaging with a free ice pack. Please consider these options, especially in summer months or if you live in an area that may experience extremely high temperatures during transit.
While these methods can reduce transit time and/or increase the amount of time your product is kept cool during transit, in many cases your product may still arrive warm. Temperature sensitive Probiotic products are manufactured with the assumption that some of the organisms will die during storage and transit. To offset this loss, they are manufactured with significantly more organisms than are required for effectiveness. Therefore, a portion of the organisms in these products may die, but the product will still remain within the guaranteed label analysis.
ProbioticSmart.com keeps your product refrigerated until the shipping trucks arrive, but your package is beyond our control once it leaves our warehouse. Therefore we cannot guarantee any cold shipping items and we will not issue any refunds for any cold shipping products. Please consider all upgrade options for the best shipping experience.
If you have any further questions or concerns please contact our Customer Care team.
As an added value to our customers, we offer free shipping within the continental United States on qualified items totalling $50 or more on a single order.
As long as you see this graphic with the product you are ordering
the item will ship for free with a combined purchase of $50 or more.
NOTE: Although most products ship for free with purchases over $50, there are a few items that do not. In the case that one of your products does not have the "Free Shipping Graphic" with it, you will pay shipping on that item only. All other items sent with your purchase that did include free shipping will not have shipping fees associated with them.
ProbioticSmart.com reserves the right to ship items with whatever methods we see fit. This typically will not include express shipping of any kind. If you need to ship the items express, you'll need to choose this as a shipping option...you will then be billed for shipping in accordance to the normal shipping rates.
