PayPal Shipping

For your convenience we offer PayPal as one of our payment options. As required by PayPal, we can only ship orders to PayPal verified addresses. We cannot ship an order over $50 to a PO Box, even if it is to a PayPal verified address. All orders above $250 will require a signature. We cannot accept international PayPal payments at this time.

Due to the nature of how PayPal works, we cannot accept PayPal as a payment method for backordered items. If your cart contains both backordered and in-stock items, you may purchase the in-stock portion of your order with PayPal. You will need to create a second order with your backordered items and pay with a credit card or gift card.

Paypal cannot be used with other payment methods such as Gift Card or Credit Card on the same order.

All shipping, fraud prevention and backorder policies, including all other policies put in place by Horizon Hobby, LLC, still apply to all orders submitted with PayPal unless otherwise noted.

Per PayPal policy, all refunds must be processed within 60 days of the initial transaction. We cannot refund any PayPal transaction after that time.
