International Shipping - now with cheaper options!
« on: March 26, 2018, 10:15:56 AM »
I'm happy to announce that there are more options for all non-USA customers. Starting today you can pay between $5-6 shipping for orders under $30. This is a substantial reduction from the recent increase we had in January due to the new USPS policies.

- Under $30 orders now ship much cheaper. These orders are sent through a special USPS processing center so they will take a few extra days but hopefully you won't mind since the postage is around 50-60% less.

- I've re-instated the shipping adjusted prices for the VFE projects that ship with 16mm pots (these require regular 1st Class shipping) but they are lower than before. In some cases I'll eat a few dollars on the shipping which is fine. In other cases, your shipping might work out higher than needed. I will automatically refund any excess shipping that is $1 or more (this is something I've always done anyway).

Thanks for your patience while this was worked out. I've already refunded shipping on all the orders I did today where it was needed.

Thank YOU for figuring this out and making the service available to us.

That's great news. Is it an option that is available to anybody shipping internationally, or is it something available to at-home postage services? Is there a secret handshake you have to perform with the USPS worker?

Nothing special. The service became available through the software I use for shipping which is Dazzle. I tried out ShipStation (has a similar service) for a bit but I really didn't like it. You cannot do it through regular USPS service at a USPS location for all I know.
