Why is shipping so high?

Wendy asked 7 years ago

I was ready to purchase 2 Bokashi bins & 3 bags of bokashi at $95. When I estimated the shipping…it is nearly $31, close to 1/3 of the product cost. Why is shipping so high? Any way to reduce the shipping charges?

Thanks for your question about shipping. Yes, as a percentage of the product cost, we do realize that the shipping cost does seem high.

But that’s because we’ve decided to show the true costs of each of these items in our offering. Many companies offer free, or discounted shipping, but then build this costs back into the price of their product. It has to come from somewhere. As sellers, we all have to pay the full cost of shipping, there’s simply no way around it unfortunately.

Our pricing is simply an honest reflection of what our true costs are. We did consider offering free shipping, and increasing the product price accordingly, but in the end decided against it.

We hope that helps. Feel free to call or ask further questions here if you have them.
