Wow, right now, everything is new! Our new store site on an entirely new and more rock-solid ecommerce platform and and we've got some cool new products to go along with it.
Why did we choose this new ecommerce platform?
It is very feature-rich, highly customizable to our needs, is very well-supported and the platform company was just named to Inc's 5000 list of growing companies as number 1982. It's an exclusive list of America’s fastest-growing private companies out of more than 6 million. It seems we made a wise choice. We need our store to be up 99% of the time and without ordering issues. So, we and you are in good hands. We're looking forward to working with you in this great new environment.
Shipping is complicated for us because our boxes are heavy and sometimes over-sized. We have accounts with all of the major shipping carriers -- Fedex, UPS and USPS. We have discounted rates with FedEx and UPS. We do not mark up our shipping and always pass our discount directly on to you.
We get asked multiple times a day, "How much is it to ship to my town?" FINALLY, we have a SUPER EASY way for you to get that answer quickly and easily when you are just considering a product. No need to put it in your cart and fake a check out just to the get the shipping cost. Just go to the product page and right next to the price is a link to 'estimate shipping.' Just click that and fill in your country and zip or postal code in the pop-up window and you'll get a real-time shipping quote for that item! So simple. And if you want a shipping estimate on multiple items, just put them in your cart and when you go to your cart, you can get a simple shipping estimate without going through the whole checkout process. No need to enter all of your personal information just to know the final cost of your potential purchase.
And that is just for starters! More comments to come.
