SHIPPING UPDATE

SHIPPING UPDATE

EFFECTIVE (STARTING) MONDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2021: OUR "$6 FLAT RATE DOMESTIC SHIPPING" WILL CHANGE TO TRANSPARENT SHIPPING BASED ON WEIGHT WITH THE OPTION OF $9 DOMESTIC FLAT RATE PRIORITY MAIL.

WE OFFER SHIPPING TRANSPARENCY - WHERE YOU CAN SELECT YOUR CHOICE OF SHIPPING BASED ON THE WEIGHT OF YOUR ORDER, AND WE OFFER $9 PRIORITY MAIL FLAT RATE TO GIVE A PRICE BREAK ON LARGER ORDERS.

 

FIRST-CLASS SHIPPING

Available for packages less than 13oz. Please note that this does not include insurance and USPS has recently de-prioritized delivery times so you may experience delays in delivery, which we are not responsible for.

PRIORITY MAIL SHIPPING

Priority Mail automatically includes insurance up to $50-100 and has a quoted shipping time of 1-3 days (this is per USPS, we have no control over actual delivery times). We offer $9 Flat Rate Domestic Priority Mail as a price break at this level.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST REACH OUT TO ME VIA EMAIL IMMEDIATELY AFTER PLACING AN ORDER TO ADD ANY ADDITIONAL INSURANCE.

ALL OPTIONS COME WITH TRACKING #.

 

INTERNATIONAL

International customers are responsible for paying 100% of shipping (priced based on weight) and any associated customs taxes & fees. I will refund any shipping overages if it ends up costing less than you pay (though it's typically very accurate).

I cannot give international shipping pricing quotes without knowing the exact weight of what you are ordering and address.

I DO NOT SHIP TO THE UK.
With the recent implementation of more complex shipping to the UK due to Brexit, I have decided not to ship to the UK at this time. I am not set up for quarterly VAT and have no intention to set this up currently.

 

INSURANCE

To insure your package beyond what's included in the label you purchase, please email contact@themineralmaven.com. 

 

HERE'S THE "WHY" BEHIND THESE RECENT SHIPPING UPDATES:

For more in-depth explanation behind the "why" of these shipping policy adjustments, please see this carousel post on my Instagram page.

In short, it's because of USPS's recent rate hikes and de-prioritizing of First-Class Package starting October 3rd, and to hopefully prevent too many delays going into the holiday season/Q4.

This also makes shipping more transparent price-wise and keeps me from having to build the difference into crystal pricing to maintain a universal flat rate.
