So you're browsing through your favorite online store, adding items to your cart with reckless abandon. You're practically giddy with excitement, imagining the moment when your kit arrives at your doorstep. But then, reality hits you like a ton of bricks. The shipping fees are high, and the estimated delivery time is longer than you were expecting. Well, fear not friends, because I have a solution that will make your shipping dreams come true (is that over selling?).

What's the deal with this external fulfillment center?

Let me break it down. I've decided to partner with an external fulfillment center to handle all our shipping needs. This means that instead of us fumbling around with boxes and tape in our tiny office, a team of shipping experts will take care of everything for us. And by everything, I mean everything from packing your order with love and care to ensuring it reaches you in record time. Unfortunately, this means no more notes from Amy, me, or the team. But the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. 

How does this benefit you?

Oh, where do I even begin? First and foremost, this move allows us to offer many of you cheaper shipping rates. Yes, you heard that right. Cheaper. Shipping. Rates.

I might tweak them a bit after I see how things are going but for now many of you will enjoy paying less for smaller packages. I know how much those pesky fees can put a damper on your online shopping spree, so I've made it our mission to lighten the load on your wallet.

But wait, there's more! Not only will your shipping costs be reduced, but your packages will also arrive faster than a cheetah on roller skates. Our new fulfillment center is a well-oiled machine, dedicated to getting your goodies to you in the blink of an eye. Well, maybe not that fast, but in 1-3 days depending on where you live, much like Amazon.

What about our international customers?

Ah, the international folks. I haven't forgotten about you, I promise. Unfortunately, there's a small hiccup in our plan. As I transition to this external fulfillment center, our international customers won't be able to checkout just yet. I'm working tirelessly to get everything set up for you, so please bear with us. I'll have you back in the shopping game before you can say "international shipping woes."

In the meantime, I encourage our international customers to keep an eye out for updates. I'm determined to make your shopping experience just as seamless and delightful as our domestic customers' and the new international fulfillment center will see markedly better rates for all of you plus no duties (that's the plan - it's gonna be good)

Get ready for a shipping revolution!

So, there you have it. Moving to an external fulfillment center is a game changer for us, and more importantly, for you. Cheaper shipping rates, faster delivery times, and the promise of a smoother shopping experience—it's a win-win situation for everyone involved.

I'm beyond excited to embark on this new chapter, and I hope you are too. Get ready to say goodbye to those outrageous shipping fees and hello to a world of affordable, speedy deliveries. Your online shopping addiction just got a whole lot sweeter!
