How can I contact Southern Hides about a potentially fraudulent website or e-mail?
Recently, there has been an increase in the number of websites and e-mails that try to lure customers into providing personal information. Often these e-mails or websites solicit charitable donations under the name of reputable companies or offer gift cards in return for information.
Southern Hides does not solicit charitable donations in this way, sponsor these websites, nor are we affiliated with the site operators. If you are aware of any potentially fraudulent websites or e-mails, please call us toll-free at 1-844-COW-HIDE (269-4433) so that we can follow up.
What payment methods does Southern Hides accept?
We accept all major credit/debit cards, eChecks and PayPal.
We do not accept cash, CODs, checks or money orders.
How much does Southern Hides charge for shipping?
Our policy is simple: We’ll ship anything on our site to anywhere in the World for free. No minimum. No code. No hassle.
However, international taxes, tariffs and value-added tax (VAT) will be paid by the recipient upon delivery in the destination country. As the recipient, you are responsible for International taxes, tariffs, value-added tax (VAT), and other fees associated with your order. All shipments may be subject to customs charges or import duties. Customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. Southern Hides has no control over these charges, and cannot advise what the cost may be.
Do I have to pay sales tax?
Southern Hides is not required to and does not collect sales or use taxes.
Your purchase isn’t exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay tax on those purchases. Details of how to file these returns may be found at the websites of your respective taxing authorities.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we do.
Southern Hides offers FREE worldwide shipping on all orders. Yes, free!
Take this into consideration when you shop for rugs at other stores. And remember, shipping a cowhide rug can be very expensive.
Also, your order will be fully tracked and is 100% insured until it is safe in your hands. For more information on our shipping policies, please click here.
How can I track the status of my order?
How long will it take to receive my order?
Orders are processed within 24-48 hours after they are placed, and generally ship within 5-13 business days from the date your order is processed. Please note that shipping windows are estimates, and delivery dates cannot be guaranteed.
These items usually arrive within 4-10 weeks. Southern Hides uses the best carriers in the business to make sure your order gets to you on time. For shipping timeframes on custom cowhide rugs, please contact Customer Service at 1.844.COWHIDE or email us.
Do you have a low-price or price-match guarantee?
Yes. Not only do we claim our prices are the lowest on the Internet, but we back this up with a 110% Price-Match Guarantee. If prior to your purchase you find a lower price from a local store, an online competitor or in a catalog for any item Southern Hides sells, we will not only match the lower price, well beat it by an additional 10% of the difference.
Example: If you find a price of $300 from a competitor for an item we sell for $400, we will match the $300 price PLUS take off an additional $10 (10% of the difference in prices) for a final price to you of $290. You must request the price match prior to placing your order. We will not honor a price match after your order has been processed.
What items do not qualify for a price match?
We will not match prices on competitors products that are out of stock, factory seconds, off-quality, clearance or closeout items.
Southern Hides reserves the right to verify the items identity and competitors advertised price before honoring a price match. We also reserve the right to reject any price match request that we determine does not meet our policy’s qualifications.
Are there other price match restrictions?
We do not honor:
•Prices that cannot be verified through a current online or printed advertisement
•Prices that require a separate or additional purchase
•Buy-one-get-one (BOGO) or free-with-purchase prices
•Prices based upon membership in a preferred pricing or discount program
•Prices reduced through a rebate or gift card promotion
•Items advertised with a percentage discount instead of an actual Price
•Going out of business or closeout prices
•Misprinted or typographic errors in the ads of other retailers
Can I combine a price match with a separate promotion from Southern Hides?
Although we do not combine our promotions or discounts with priced matched items, we will gladly apply our Southern Hides discounts or promotions to that item and compare it to our competitor’s price and offer you the lowest of the two prices.
Do you have an in-home trial?
Yes. If, for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, return it within 30 days and we will refund the full purchase price. You are responsible for the return shipping charges. Personalized and custom-made items are not returnable, unless there is damage or a defect, in which case we will happily provide a replacement of the item you ordered. Please click here for more information on our product returns policy.
How do you guarantee my privacy?
We carefully follow all online industry standards for customer security and privacy. Southern Hides does not share customer information (including email addresses). We respect your privacy, and take great care to safeguard information in our possession. Your preferences for use of your information are our highest priority.
Return and Exchanges
What is your return policy?
No matter their job title, everyone at Southern Hides knows there is nothing more important than a satisfied customer.
Our mission is to make shopping for cowhide rugs a pleasant experience and to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with what you buy from us.
If there is a problem, we will do everything in our power to make it right. We plan to be around a long time, and we know the key to this goal is to make you, our customer, feel valued at every stage of the transaction.
Can I return or exchange my purchase if I don't like it?
We understand that buying online comes with a certain element of risk. You don’t always know exactly what the product will be like until you are holding it in your hands. That’s why we offer a Satisfied Guarantee. This means you have 30 days to return or exchange any item that you are not 100% happy with. The return must be made within 30 days of purchase, and you are responsible for return shipping charges. We’ll take care of the details of safely getting the cowhide rug back to our returns center and properly crediting your account. If your order is defective or damaged upon delivery, this charge will be waived. For more information, see our Returns and Exchanges policy.
