Sales tax collection for states other than Texas are not required at this time.
700SHIPPING AND PROCESSINGMPS utilizes the USPS (The United States Postal Service) as its shipping provider to mail purchases to the contiguous 48 United States, Alaska, and Hawaii. International shipping is also available to select countries. Click HERE to see our complete shipping guide.
We ship orders Monday-Friday. Orders usually ship within twenty-four (24) hours of payment received with orders placed on Saturday or Sunday being shipped the following Monday. Merchandise purchased on National holidays will typically be mailed the next business day.
We offer a standard flat-rate shipping option that includes a nominal processing fee. You can be assured that we make every effort to see that our shipping fees are reasonable and customary based on the weight of your purchase, your zip code, and the additional options that you may select. Unfortunately, the actual costs of mailing items and the additional burden of complicated shipping restrictions and regulations, including slower delivery times, have never been greater. These circumstances are completely beyond our control. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have in advance of your purchase and do our best to provide you with shipping estimates when you provide us with your zip code.
Our standard shipping method is USPS 1st Class Mail or Parcel Post based on weight and location. In addition, we are pleased to offer insurance, mailing confirmation, and expedited shipping methods such as USPS Priority, Express, or Overnight Mail for additional fees. If you choose to pay for your purchase through PayPal, we require that your mailing address be PayPal verified.Expedited orders placed after noon (12:00 pm, CST) will ship the following business day. Orders shipped to Hawaii and Alaska will only be shipped via USPS Priority Mail.
Orders shipped Internationally via 1st Class mail are uninsurable. We cannot guarantee delivery and no refunds will be given when items are lost or damaged in transit.When requested, we will gladly combine shipping when you purchase multiple items. Please contact us in advance of checkout and we are happy to provide you with an estimate.
800 THINK GREENOur processing area uses clean, recycled materials in a smoke-free and pet-free environment to carefully package and ship your items. Not only is this earth friendly, but it also helps us to continue to be able to offer you discounts on our merchandise and to minimize your shipping and processing costs.
900RETURNED MERCHANDISEAt MPS your complete satisfaction is our goal. And as more than one thousand previously satisfied customers will attest, we believe you will find us to be fair, reasonable, and most importantly, honest. With our accurate descriptions, clear photos, and full disclosure of any condition issues, the request for a refund is rare. However, in the unlikely event that you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, we are always happy to offer refunds or store credits according to the following terms and conditions:
Requests to return merchandise for a refund or store credit must occur within three (3) days upon your receipt of the item, explaining fully the reasons for your request. If approved, the item must be returned to us (at the customer’s expense) within ten (10) days of the date of original purchase.
Approved refunds will only be made for the total original price paid for the item itself by the customer. Store credits automatically expire after a period of six months. Unless a significant mistake was made on the part of MPS, the amount originally paid by the customer for shipping and processing is non-refundable. In addition, the cost of returning the item to MPS is also at the customer’s expense and is non-refundable.
1000 LOST OR DAMAGED ITEMSFor items that become lost in transit or arrive damaged, a refund will only be given if the customer has purchased shipping insurance at the time of sale. Although we are happy to assist you, customers with lost or damaged merchandise must file a claim with USPS for reimbursement. Under no circumstances will a refund be made by MPS, nor can we assist in recovery from USPS, when a buyer declines to purchase insurance at the time of purchase and the item is either lost in transit or arrives in a damaged condition. Cases of lost or damaged merchandise are extremely rare, but for their additional peace of mind and protection, customers are encouraged to purchase shipping insurance at the time of purchase.
1100ORDER TRACKINGIf as a registered user on our store-website you provide a valid e-mail address to MPS when you order, you will receive an e-mail confirming that your order has been received. A second e-mail confirmation will be sent when the order is shipped. All Priority Mail shipments will include a tracking number that may be used to track the progress of your shipment through the official USPS website. Also as a registered MPS user, you may check the status of your order by going to the "My Orders" page under "My Account" on our store-website.
1200PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONSMPS attempts to be as accurate as possible when describing our merchandise. However, we do not warrant that product descriptions or other content of our website is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by MPS is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition (or same condition in which it was sold for vintage items) for a full refund minus the shipping and processing charges. “Buyer’s remorse” is not considered a legitimate reason for returning an item.
1300PRICINGIn the event that a product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price by us, MPS reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for product listed at the incorrect price. MPS reserves the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, MPS shall issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.
