USPS Raised Shipping Rates for 2018, But We're Rebels...

We lowered ours!

Effective January 21, USPS increased shipping rate approximately 3.9% across all service levels to  include Priority Mail, First Class Package Service, and Priority Mail Express.

But we're rebels.

We get it. We know we have to compete for your business. We believe once you try Island Thyme Soap Company's products, you will agree we nail the quality aspect of this business and will join the hundreds of loyal customers who return to us again and again for their personal care and gift giving needs.

We will also admit...we're spoiled. We're creatures of instant gratification. That's why we strive to ship the SAME DAY and our customers rave about how fast we ship!

Obviously we can't compete head to head with that online retail giant and its membership program that includes unlimited free two-day shipping.  

But we CAN make it a little more enticing to get new customers to try our products. 

So beginning on January 23rd, we decided to introduce a new Three Teir Flat Rate Shipping System for our US retail customers. 

Tier One Flat Rate - Purchases up to $10.51 will ship for $2.99

Tier Two Flat Rate - Purchases of $10.52 to $74.99 will ship for $5.99

Tier Three - Purchases of $75.00 and up will ship for FREE!

Are we sure lowering our prices when carriers and retailers are raising their across the board makes good business sense? 

No. But we're rebels. And we fear regret a lot more than failure!

So “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules..."
