USPS PRIORITY MAIL FEES HAVE SKYROCKETED!
Recently the USPS has raised its rates for Priority Mail service- again.
This recent rate increase, especially for packages over one pound, packages over 12" on any one side, and packages being shipped to states west of the Mississippi, is ENORMOUS.
EACH package now costs us between $10 and $35 to ship via USPS Priority Mail (and sometimes DOUBLE that for big or heavy packages)!
We were faced with a dilemma.
We certainly can't afford to pay these astronomical shipping fees, especially since many orders quaility for free shipping.
Do we raise the shipping fees we are charging - and discontinue free shipping?
Fortunately, we negotiated a deal with UPS (United Parcel Service).
By changing carriers and using UPS instead of USPS Priority Mail, we can avoid raising our shipping rates.
Including the free shipping for orders over $30!
Under our new plan this is generally how packages will ship now:
- packages OVER ONE POUND will ship via UPS GROUND (that's United Parcel Service)
- packages UNDER ONE POUND will ship via USPS FIRST CLASS (that's United States Postal Service)
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
- Your orders over $30 will still ship FREE
- UPS GROUND usually takes 3-6 days to arrive
- USPS FIRST CLASS usually takes 3-6 days to arrive
- Packages OVER ONE POUND can no longer be shipped to P.O. Boxes
- You will still get an automated email when your order ships
The tracking number will be in the email, whether it is UPS or USPS shipping
We still ship to US Zip Codes ONLY.
