Club Invoices for February

The club invoices are scheduled to go out on the 1st and 2nd of each month. I don't know why Paypal sends a dozen or so on the 30th of the month.....I have asked them and I get no answers. So remember that they are not due until the when it is convenient for you. I apologize for Paypal....again! LOL

UPDATE to shipping rate increase

Thank you for the great response to the previous post regarding the postal rate increase. Over 200 of you responded and said to ship your floss in poly envelopes instead of boxes.

I have decided to ship all of the club shipments this way and will no longer ship in boxes. There was never a charge for these gift boxes. I will still have gift sets available in the  gift boxes. AND if you still want your floss in these gift boxes for the monthly club I will do that for you. Please send me an email if you want that option.

It's nice working together to keep the costs down for you. I do all I can to help!

Shipping rate increase....PLEASE READ

As you all know, there was a postal rate increase today. The first class rate for packages increased 11.9%.  BIG increase. If you currently get the 6 skein package it was $14.99 with postage. Good thing I give a free skein with the club shipments. The new rate is $15.75. But it gets more complicated because they change the rate depending on what zone it ships to. The father you are the more the increase. And any postal discounts I have I will pass on to you.

Lets get creative with the packing. Because their rates stay the same for a few ounces....some packages will require the increase. Can't get around it. BUT.....if I send linen in a poly envelope it might saves a few ounces for the cardboard box. But if you get linen and a boxed set it will require the box unless we omit the little gift box.....

If you get a box of 12 skeins I don't charge for the little gift box. I could send them in a zip bag (some customers always get them that way as they don't use the boxes).....and then they could be shipped in a poly bag and not the cardboard box. Please send me an email if this option will work for you.

I will do all I can to help.

This month each package will be weighed and the increase applied. Rather than go in and try to change 500 invoices I will wait and weigh each order and apply the increase next month to your invoice. It will make it easier. I will still need to change 500 invoices but I will know the exact amount to add. A paperwork nightmare!

Ebay has sent me three notices regarding the increase as it will affect sales. One skein of floss will be $3.94 postage! But 12 skeins ships for the same price so that helps. Online sales are going to take a big hit for sure.

Thank you for working with me on the packing and shipping rates.
