Okay, It's five hours later than I anticipated, but finally my store is open! I apologize again for the delay. Why didn't I think about shipping sooner? I did! But I kept forgetting to follow up. lol Trust me, this is a learning experience for me. The shipping issue is especially daunting because I know (as an on-line shopper myself) that shipping costs are very unpopular. So I want to provide you with realistic and cost-effective shipping options. At the last minute, I discovered I could activate weight-based shipping through the USPS. Little did I know that it would take a bit of time to clear through the USPS and then to get ahold of my store host to figure out how to limit the shipping choices to just those that are realistic. When I tested the cart, it offered me a shipping choice of .28 cents! I thought, what the heck? Then saw the drop down menu. The .28 is for a postcard, which obviously isn't going to cut it. But I was afraid folks would get confused by this and then we'd have a mess on our hands.
Unfortunately, I could not get ahold of my store host, but I do not want to hold up the opening one moment longer. We will deal with the shipping issue! Just please note: When you get into the check-out process, it will default to the least expensive shipping option...a post card... which is, of course, not feasible. Therefore, please please please use the drop down menu to select a realistic shipping option... First Class Mail, Parcel Post or Priority Mail. If you're short on the postage, I'll have to email you and have you remit the correct amount before I ship your item. If you pay too much, I'll refund the difference!
This may well be the first big mistake I make as I open my doors, but please bear with me. I'm hoping for the best!
