At Poofy Organics, we try to do our best to keep our shipping prices low. We charge according to weight and zip code of the package. The great news is that we cap shipping at $24.95 so the more you order, the more you will save. In some cases, we will ship First Class Mail. If packages become too heavy, Priority Mail will be used. We are not able to offer Flat-Rate Box rates at this time as the USPS software does not utilize this capability. We use the overage for handling fees for our supplies and workers. Your shipping costs also cover exchanges. As a small business, we are NOT able to offer free shipping. Yes, we will admit that some companies can offer "free" shipping; however those companies' markups are substantial and/or are rolling their shipping fees into their retail prices. As a small business, we like to keep our products affordable and can only do so by charging shipping. We appreciate every purchase made!
