New Shipping Prices for 2011

As a business owner who ships my products internationally, I'm always trying to find the best possible shipping price for my customers. In conclusion, I have found that Canada Post is the cheapest as far as price goes, but the price to pay for not the best service is probably not too worth it!

I shipped many of my items as a small light packet which was great because shipping is quite cheap, thus giving me the upper hand in making my items appealing to the shopper, but the problem I faced this December, was that some of my clients did not receive their packages. The down part of the small light packet is that there is no insurance and no tracking number. What it comes down to is this: you're better off charging more for your shipping and make sure you have both insurance and tracking to offer your clients because if you don't, you will get bit in the behind. It doesn't matter how honest you are, according to the client, you didn't deliver and you didn't keep your end of the bargain.

That being said, in an attempt to offer a more reliable shipping service, I have decided to up my shipping prices in order to offer both insurance and a tracking number with all of my shipments. When you think about it, there really is no other option. If you're going to want to offer the best service you can, this is the only way to go. There is no negotiation when it comes to keeping your good business name.

In conclusion: To all of my loyal customers and to my future customers, please shop with confidence because we will deliver; we guarantee it! We look forward to serving you better in the future.
