In response to a few inquiries about the pricing of shipping, we are shedding some insight. We use our own business accounts for shipping on the website. This will sometimes show shipping as more than what the actual price is. In this case, we will pass the savings on to our customers through our shopping cart back door. As an example, USPS small flat rate box is around $8.50-$9.50 USD. Please be advised, you may use either USPS or UPS for shipping. UPS is our default, as they have better service than USPS. Also, as stated on our website, the $1.50 handling fee is to cover the cost of printing a shipping label and packaging.
