What is Flat Rate Shipping?

Flat rate shipping is applied to orders that exceed $1,000 at the time they are placed. Shipping is charged at 15% of your total order volume at the time of shipment and only for the items actually shipped.

Regardless of what you order big, small, light or heavy, your shipping percentage will not change. You can always be aware of what your shipping cost will be before your shipment ever leaves the door.
