What we do know is that shipping can be complex and expensive, and we we want to keep it simple.
We do take the trouble to figure out exactly what goes into shipping. There’s the bubble wrap to protect the case(s), the shipper box, the shipping label, the stamp label (we print our own postage), the packing slip, the tape to close the package, and the 2-3 minutes it takes us to pull it all together, plus the actual cost of the postage. Sometimes we have to drive to the post office when there are too many card packs to fit in our mailbox.
For now, we’re using some simple shipping amounts based on the total dollar amount of your purchase. If you’re buying lots of card packs this might add up pretty quickly, but we will keep an eye on it when we pack your order. If it turns out that we can ship for less, we’ll refund the difference if it’s more than $1.00 or so.
Conversely, if it turns out that shipping to your destination costs a lot more than what we estimated, we may have to send you an updated shipping invoice. We don’t want to alienate our international customers, but as you know shipping rates can climb really fast. We appreciate your flexibility in not making us absorb really exorbitant shipping if it’s more than a couple of bucks from what we estimated.
Cards will ship via the cheapest shipping method. Sometimes, that’s first class, and sometimes, it’s Priority Mail. If you absolutely insist on Priority Mail, just add it to the notes to seller when you check out, and if we need to, we’ll send you an updated shipping invoice.
