I think that spending $5.75 to ship a $7.95 bottle of Gourmet sauce is way too high. Here is the problem.
Most sauces weigh over 13 ounces so they can't be sent by regular mail. By shipping USPS, I at least get the boxes for free. I supply the bubble wrap, peanuts and my time at no charge. I am having about a 20% breakage rate, which I just have to eat.
I suggest that you loyal customers order at least 4 bottles at a time so I can ship FEDEX and save you money. If I can ship cheaper than the minimum of $5.75, I will refund in cash with your order. I do not make money on shipping, nor do I ever intend to. Thanks for your patronage and I hope this explains why shipping is so high.
