On January 27th the United States Postal Service updated their rates. The rate change was only slightly raised for domestic prices so we have been able to leave our domestic shipping costs. Unfortunately, international rates went up quite a bit. We highly value our international customers and we want to do everything we can to make our products affordable. Despite that we had to raise our shipping prices. We kept the prices as low as possible.
Part of the changes we have made include dropping our international Priority shipping method. The cost for this method was raised substantially and the benefits of this method over the economy (First Class) is marginal. The value of economy is much higher so we will be shipping all international packages via economy from now on. There is, however, still an Express option available for those who need it.
We have also added an economy option for domestic orders. This method is a better value if one pair of sandals are being purchased. If more than one pairs are purchased then we will ship them via Priority.
We will continue to work to make our shipping costs as low as possible and the value of our products as high as possible. Thanks to all of you who support us!
