* Shipping prices are higher if you only buy 1 single item.
* You can save money by purchasing several items at once.
* Shipping prices are higher for non-USA customers, because it cost me more to ship outside the states.
As an example:
If you buy an ounce of Cinnamon and nothing else, then the shipping total would be $1.50 but if you also bought, say, an ounce of Hops and an ounce of Peppermint, then the lower shipping price for each of those 3 items is $0.65 so the shipping total would be $1.95 and the grand total would be $1.95 plus the cost of those 3 items.
Thaumaturgy 777 is a very small operation, so I ship as fast as I can but I cannot guarantee same day shipping. If you need something fast, email me and I can send you a separate bill to cover expedited shipping. You tell me when you need it by. I will get a price and let you know what it will cost. You will have to pay in advance and I cannot guarantee the Post Office will come through. But I will provide a copy of the receipt if you want, to show that I purchased the expedited shipping.
Normally, I use regular mail, whatever is cheapest and pass the savings on to you. My competitors have policies of minimum shipping costs, even if you buy only 1 or 2 items. Meaning, you could buy 1 item for $2.95 and pay shipping of $7-10. I think that is outrageous. I understand that it's a good way to get people to order more than 1 item but I wouldn't call it good business. From me, you can order as much or as little as you need and I have carefully scaled the shipping rates so that we can both benefit.
Also, I believe in recycling as much as possible, so the packaging I use to send your order may be something like an Amazon.com box, or even a shoe box or something equally strange. I stand by the quality of what's IN the box, not the box itself. I am not about fancy packaging. I see no point in recycling the boxes that my stuff comes in and then buying new boxes to ship stuff to you. I just cut out the intermediary step. I receive many boxes when I order my bulk supplies, so I use those boxes to ship out orders to my customers.
With each order, I send out a few business cards. I ask that if you are pleased with the merchandise you receive, please pass these out to friends who are inclined to purchase magickal supplies and/or services. I thank you in advance.
Thanks for doing business with me and I am here to answer any questions you may have regarding my products and services
