Frequently Asked Questions

Shipping

We are currently experiencing slight shipping delays due to COVID-19 workplace regulations. We will ship your products as quickly as we can and appreciate your patience!

Generally, you can change your shipping address within 24 hours. Make sure to contact us immediately with your order number, and the correct address. The more information you provide, the sooner we can change your information. Although we cannot guarantee that we'll catch your order in time before it enters processing, we will try our absolute best to make the requested changes.

Make sure you type ‘Urgent: Change Order Details’ in the subject line. Any other title may cause delay in the delivery of your order.

Please keep in mind that your order may already have been dispatched. In this case, we won't be able to send you another one so it’s best to contact the postal service.

Supplies: Orders placed by 4PM (ET) will usually ship the same day, and most customers receive their orders in 7 days. Orders that require prescription approval or personalization may take longer to ship. 


Reptiles: We ship out between Monday - Thursday with FedEx overnight shipping which arrives in next day.

Yes! all orders will include a tracking number. It will automatically be sent to your email.

If you received a shipping confirmation email with your tracking number, it means that your order has been shipped. Tracking numbers can take 5-9 business days to update depending on the shipping carrier. This is usually due to our high volume of orders.

As soon as your package is shipped, you may receive an email notification confirming the shipment. The email will provide you with the tracking number for your package and a link to the shipping carrier's website.

If there is a problem with your tracking number or package delivery, please contact the courier directly. Please allow 1 - 4 days for the tracking information to show up. In some rare case, the tracking information may not update but you will still receive your order. Please contact us after the estimated delivery time.

We're very sorry to hear that you haven't received your package yet. When the tracking information indicates that the package was delivered, this means it was delivered to the shipping address provided to us at check-out. Please review the options below as it may help with locating your package.

A. Double check your shipping address.

We recommend to double check the shipping address you entered to ensure it was correct. Please make sure that the home number and unit number (if applicable) are correct.

You can check the shipping address that was provided to us at check-out by following the steps below:

1. Login to your Geckopia account.

2. Click on the order that you have not received.

3. Review the shipping information to ensure the address provided is correct.

Kindly note, in the instance that an incorrect shipping address was provided to us, Geckopia cannot be held accountable for mis-delivered packages. Customers are responsible for ensuring that all information provided to us at check-out is correct. If you believe your package was delivered to an incorrect address, please try to get in touch with the residents of that address to see if they can accept the package on your behalf.

Otherwise, keep an eye on the tracking information provided to see if it updates to show the package is being "returned to sender". If this is the case, please contact us with your order number and we'll be happy to ship you another package to your intended address.

B. Check with your household members and your neighbors.

When a package is delivered, most carriers will simply deliver it to the address provided on the shipping label, and not necessarily to the recipient listed. Therefore, please check with your household members as there is a chance someone else may have accepted the package on your behalf.

We also recommend to check with your neighbors to see if anyone has accepted the package for you.

C. Check your mailbox and any safe drop areas around the parameters of your home.

In most cases, the carrier will specify on your tracking link where the package was delivered to (a mailbox, the front door, etc). We still recommend, however, to check all possible areas where it could have been delivered to rule out the other options.

What does safe drop mean? Safe drop refers to any locations around your household premises where your package may be deemed better hidden from passersby by the individual delivering your package. Please check around your porch, near your garage, and backyard entrance to see if the package is there.

D. For businesses - check with the security guard, mailroom, and front desk.

If your shipping address is to a business, there's a very good chance it was delivered somewhere and/or to someone else. Please check with your mail room, front desk, and security guard to see if anyone has accepted the package for you.

E. For apartment buildings - check with security or front desk/concierge.

In many instances for apartment buildings, the package will be delivered to concierge or security. Please check with your building's front desk or management office to inquire if they have received your package.

F. Contact your local post offices.

There's a chance that your package may have been held at one of your local post offices instead, despite the tracking showing as being 'Delivered'. We recommend to contact your local post offices to inquire if they're holding your package. Be sure you're contacting the number of that exact post office, and not the general support line of the carrier.

G. Wait 24-48 hours for your package to deliver.

On rare occasions, the carrier may mark the package as being delivered earlier than it actually is. Please wait 24-48 hours for your package to deliver or for the carrier to issue another update.

If you have done all of the above and still do not have your package, please contact us with your order number and we'll be happy to help you further.

Please note: We cannot be held accountable for packages where tracking information states the package has been delivered to your order address.

If you have previously experienced lost or stolen packages where you reside, we encourage you to have your package delivered to a work address to ensure that you receive it safely.

Geckopia is not responsible for lost or stolen packages. The carrier will generally determine if your order can be left in a safe secure place at your delivery address.

Yes! We ship to military addresses. All mail is shipped via USPS to a military base who is then responsible for delivering the package to your final destination. For military orders, delivery times can be upwards of 15-20 business days.

At check-out, please select United States as the country, and in the state drop-down menu, you will have the option to select one of the following: Armed Forces America, Armed Forces Europe, or Armed Forces Pacific.

International customers (outside of the United States) are responsible to pay any applicable inbound duties, taxes, and any other fees which your local Customs Authority deems appropriate. These fees are paid to your local carrier or government and are not collected by Geckopia, and thus cannot be refunded.

We ship international packages DDU (duties and taxes unpaid), meaning that these fees are not included in the price of the goods you purchase from our website. All applicable fees must be paid by the recipient in order to receive the parcel. As we are unable to advise the amount of these fees, we recommend contacting your country's customs office or tax agent for respective charges and rates.

Please note that DHL pays on your behalf for any duties and taxes that are due on the goods, as soon they enter the country. This simple process ensures that the courier can deliver your package in the shortest possible transit time. The goods are released to you only upon the full repayment of any duties and taxes that were paid on your behalf. On some occasions, you may receive an invoice from DHL after the delivery of goods, for the charges they have paid on your behalf at destination, plus a small administration fee.

Yes, definitely! You can do so by filling in your address as the ‘billing address’ and the address you wish to ship your order to, as the ‘shipping address’

We ship via FedEx and other premium carriers to provide you with the fastest and most reliable service available.

Nope! If you're not home, the driver will leave your package at the door or with your doorman.

International Reptile Shipping

All prices listed on the website are in the currency that you choose. However, all final checkouts are in US dollars. For international orders, the bank that has issued your credit/debit card determines the exact exchange rate that you will be charged. The amount taken from the original funding source is returned in full when refunded by the seller. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for any discrepancies caused by exchange rate fluctuations.
