Shipping and Payment for Earth Science Materials and other Items.


All on-line orders are processed using PayPal. You do not need an account with PayPal to purchase from us. PayPal works just like any other credit card transaction. They accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Cards. If you have an account with PayPal you can utilize it but you don't have to sign up with PayPal.

Here is how it works:
PayPal notifies us that a purchase has been made, we pack your items and ship per your instructions. Using PayPal saves your security and saves us from having to store or view your credit card details.

Secure On-Line Ordering
PayPal is the safer, easier way to pay. Unlike other merchants that don't use PayPal, we never see your credit card information. The shopping cart and payment windows only appear on your computer. PayPal sends us an email showing what you bought and where to send it. It is that simple and that secure. We like PayPal because it also protects us. Since we never handle anyone's credit card information it eliminates the need for security from us.

Money Order and Checks
If you don't want to use a credit card you can order directly from us using a money order or check, personal checks will need to clear before we can ship. 

 Personal checks accepted. Make money order payable to:  Geoprime

Purchase Orders.  

At this time we are a retail proprietary product reseller and, business requesting wholesale prices are reviewed on a case by case basis.

Orders will be shipped FedEx Ground, UPS Ground or USPS; shipping charges will be added to the invoice.  2-day and overnight shipping on request.  Prepayment or credit card (Visa, MC, or Paypal) is required for individuals ordering  Earth Science Specimens.   Estimate 15% of the total for shipping - it may be more or less.  The shipping for smaller orders will almost certainly be more than 15% - just the nature of shipping charges.  No individual mail orders under $25.00 unless pre-approved.  We cannot  fill orders that request one (1) each of small earth science samples.
