Why Are US Postal Service Shipping Rates So Expensive?
US Postal Service Priority Mail and Standard Post (formerly Parcel Post) rates are calculated by shipping zone, and there is also an increased charge for large-size packages. The shipping rate shown for each product weighing 1 lb or more reflects shipping to the farthest zone. Shipping to a closer zone can often reduce the cost. We will gladly adjust the charges if the rate to your shipping zone is less than the one specified. Simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your selection of items and zip code BEFORE ordering so that we can adjust the costs.
Can I Upgrade From Tracking to Signature Confirmation?
Yes! If you are concerned that your postal carrier will leave the package on a porch, in an apartment building lobby, or in a similar unsecured location where it might be taken, we will gladly upgrade a package from Tracking (formerly Delivery Confirmation) to Signature Confirmation, which costs an additional $2.70. Simply contact us at email@example.com BEFORE ordering so that we can adjust the shipping charges.
Can I Pick Up My Order?
Yes! We will gladly meet for item pickup within 20 miles of Central Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time and location. No shipping charges, of course. We accept cash only for pickup.
Can I Pay By Money Order?
Certainly! For those US customers who prefer non-electronic payment, we accept US Postal Service Money Orders only, available at every post office. Just contact us at email@example.com with the item or items you'd like to order and your zip code. We will let you know the final cost (there is sometimes a reduction in shipping charges depending on your location) and details for sending the Money Order. We hold your order for 7 days to allow time to receive payment, notify you once your Money Order has arrived, and ship within one business day of confirmed payment, notifying you of the US Postal Service Tracking number.
Do You Ship Internationally?
We currently ship to Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, in addition to the United States. Shipping to other destinations besides those listed will be considered on a per-order basis. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
