$10 Flat Rate Shipping

Like you, we have noticed a significant increase in shipping fees these days when shopping online.

We don’t want our customers to experience sticker shock when they see the shipping rates at our store. Also, we want to make our online shopping experience straightforward and having a $10 Flat Rate Shipping charge lets customers quickly calculate their costs. That can’t be a bad thing, right?

We had a trial run of $10 Flat Rate Shipping over Cyber Monday last November and it was a huge success. Customers loved it and we did, too.

Our $10 Flat Rate Shipping no longer has a time limit – this is Everyday $10 Flat Rate Shipping. No coupon codes. No limits. No problem.

Have a Wonderful Day!
