USPS First class mail update

From what it looks like, USPS is addressing delays for first class packages which is what Reloptix uses for domestic shipments within the U.S if you have opted for FREE SHIPPING. These prices are economical for us to be able to offer free shipping at our already low prices. It appears as though USPS is upping the standard which is good news. However, It looks as though they want to make more use of their trucks for transporting instead of costly air fare.

USPS First class option for international

This shipping option is available for those that want to save money on shipping costs. As an example from Colorado USA to France during a busy season shipping could only cost $15 however we have recorded a recent USPS First class international to France taking 47 days to arrive from December 8th - January 24th. On top of waiting for our turn around time due to high demand this quickly may not seem like an attractive shipping method to some. However the option is there for those that want to save $35 + on a more expensive shipping label. The difference in time and assurance is what has to be considered here. We have to also consider that during a pandemic there may be multiple delays along the way during travel. As this shipping method is economical the carrier is also shipping these packages in their own economical way they do not place them with express packages. Please be aware of your potential experiences while choosing a shipping option.

A word from reloptix

Since we have recently added our newest California team we are seeing more orders fly out the door which is reducing our turn around time from purchase to shipped. We will see improvements on turn around time from late September orders on. We have seen hiccups in shipments from our Colorado HQ to our new lab in California using a premium carrier such as UPS which took an extra 2 days. As we get closer to December we expect to see larger volumes take on longer delays/ hiccups in the shipping system. Be prepared and order accordingly.
