Buyer Protection

It’s time you relaxed.

It’s very important to us that you feel secure and protected while shopping on FishList. Our Buyer Protection guarantee ensures that you won’t have to deal with the usual problems of buying aquarium livestock online.

Pay when it arrives

Confirm that your item has arrived alive and as described within a day of delivery. If not, fill out our return process.

Vetted sellers

We do daily evaluations of our marketplace to ensure that you can shop with confidence. We hold high standards for our vendors.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Our vendors offer a live arrival guarantee on all livestock. Most also offer health guarantees after arrival as well.

The Payment Process

It’s simple. After you buy, we hold payment from the seller until you confirm you’ve received the item alive (for livestock) and as described. You can rate the vendor in the order confirmation email to complete the order and release payment to the vendor.

You have 3 days to notify us of any issues in the order. After this period is passed, we automatically rate the vendor and release the payment. No more claims can be opened after this period.

If you find an issue in your order, please contact the vendor and try to reach an agreement. If that doesn’t work, open a claim. More instructions on that below. 

How do I get a refund or replacement?

Sometimes orders don’t work out. We’re sorry about any problems you face. Before coming to us, please try to resolve things with the vendor. Most vendors will be happy to give you a replacement. If you can’t reach an agreement, you can get a refund by filling out out a claim.
