It's time to update our shipping rates. In the last two years (rates have remained constant since then), some costs have of course gone up, and we've learned how much it costs to ship to various places in North America and the world.
See our new Canada/US rates below. We're working on our new international rates and will send them out in a few days.
SHIPPING RATE CHANGES
Effective June 14
We know our customers like low-cost or free shipping. We've done our best to keep our rates low, and to offer reduced or free shipping for larger orders.
We're hoping that our new rates will keep us in business, AND give you a break. Details here
Here's the gist of the changes:
- AS LOW AS POSSIBLE.
We're committed to keeping our rates as affordable as we can: ALL of our Canada/US rates will remain under $20.
- MORE BREAKS
We've added more price break points - $100, $200, $250 and $300. At each point your shipping cost drops, and at $300 it disappears.
- BIGGER ORDERS GET LOWER SHIPPING COSTS.
As your order gets larger, shipping costs get smaller, and we can afford to drop the rate. Much as we'd love to give free shipping all around, our modest size and the reality of shipping costs make this impossible.
- LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.
We've broken the continent into 3 different price zones, to reflect the realities of shipping to Western Canada, to Eastern & Northern Canada and to the United States.
And for those of us who crave free shipping offers: don't despair:
ENJOY FREE SHIPPING UNTIL MIDNIGHT JUNE 13 !
- Our new rates will kick in June 14
- Until then, all Canadian/US orders over $50 will be shipped for free.
- To take advantage of two weeks of free shipping, go to our website.
NEW SHIPPING RATES
EFFECTIVE JUNE 14, 2014
*NOTE: a small number of our heavy and unusual items are exempt from these shipping rates: baskets, very large quantities of rope and twine, and sheepskins for example. These are a tiny fraction of our many products and for those, we'll calculate actual shipping rates and send you a separate PayPal request for the shipping charges.
