We always try to offer the most affordable shipping that we can. We will generally ship all Domestic orders out via USPS Priority Mail, which unfortunately can sometimes get a bit pricey. When possible, we will ship Domestic orders via USPS First Class Mail in order to keep costs down, but we believe it's in everyones best interest to pay a little extra to guarantee a fast and trackable delivery. Because we are a very small independent boutique, this is the best we can do right now, but we are always looking for shipping breaks and will try our hardest to get you the best deal we can.

International orders are always shipped via USPS First Class Mail as the cost of Priority Mail for large packages starts at $40 and that's just crazy. International customers outside the U.S. are responsible for any additional import duties/taxes that their country may charge. Please note that Customs Authorities may require us to state the value of each item. Pygmy Hippo will not be held responsible for such charges and will not be responsible for return shipping charges if the order is refused.

We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.

Shipping and Handling fees are always NON-REFUNDABLE.


We gladly accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover - all through PayPal.
You do not need to have a PayPal account to make a credit card purchase from our online store.

PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available).
