Undeliverable Packages: To provide affordable shipping rates to it’s customers, The Swamp Company heavily subsidizes all shipping speed fees.

In such a case The Swamp Company pays for any postage deficits as a subsidy for the Customer. This subsidization occurs once, and once only, with the original Order Shipment. Packages returned to The Swamp Company due to incorrect addressing provided by the Customer will be reshipped at the full and unsubsidized shipping rate, and must be paid for by the Customer prior to shipping. Packages returned to our warehouses due to improper address information provided by the Customer may also be subject to a $10 reprocessing fee.
