Maximizing Your Shipping Dollars

Home » Maximizing Your Shipping Dollars

Nobody likes ordering $2.00 worth of merchandise and then being charged $5.00 in shipping costs. Unfortunately, 6060eyes is at the mercy of the USPS and cannot control their rates. With most of our products being smaller priced items, the recent postal increase (January 2016) has been hard to absorb.

Here are some suggestions that can help you boost the value of your shipping charges and help you get the most out of your orders from us:

  • The closer you can get to ordering 8 oz of items, the more efficient your shipping costs will be. It costs as much to ship a single 1/2 oz order as it does to ship a 7.9 oz one. 
  • The vast majority of our products weigh much less than 1 oz. Many weigh just a small fraction of 1 oz. Group your purchases into larger orders and try to keep it under a total of 7 oz (leave a little room for the weight of the shipping materials). An ounce is a LOT of eyes! See below
  • If you work with a crafting group, consider combining orders. 
  • Save yourself on return or incorrect item shipping costs. Be extra careful when selecting a size or color. If you are not sure which size or style of product best fits your needs, contact us  and we'll be happy to offer advice.
