Today we’ve begun using a new shipping tool. Hopefully it will solve the shipping problems we’re experiencing. Thus far, all of the packages we’ve mailed have been sent out at a loss. We haven’t said anything because we want to take care of our customers. The problem is zones and weight. Zones change depending upon the delivery location. When products were initially sent out, it was done out of Florida as a Zone 1, meaning that was the center. Now that the DFW Metroplex is where the shipping takes place Zone 1 is centered around this location. The great thing about being in the DFW Metroplex is 1) We’re in Texas! 2) Did I mention we’re in Texas? 3) The time to ship to all of the zones (with the exception of AK, HI, and PR) has changed and now typically shipping to any zone is no more than 3-4 days. That’s nice. The initial concern we had was that if we settled on one shipping method only instead of offering several our customers might not like using just one method. So we worked with the USPS Business Center to develop a method that would suit our products well. And we’ve done just that. So now, you can rest easy at night because
Shipping has you covered!
This new program we’re working with should allow us to take the weight of the product, calculate what zone you’re in and charge an accurate cost for shipping. Hopefully this will work. If it does I’ll give the company we used a nice plug. If not, we’ll find a different method.
All this means that we can now offer you simple USPS Priority Mail shipping to any location. Now you have the power of USPS on your side. Fast, friendly, accurate delivery service from the mailman you’re used to seeing every day. They know you, and know how you want your packages delivered!
