Why do you charge $5.00 shipping and handling if I only purchase one packet of seeds?
Shipping and handling is a flat fee of $5.00 for any order up to one pound (1 packet to approximately 30 packets of seeds). For orders weighing more than one pound, the shipping cost increases according to weight. Handling includes counting and packaging the seeds for sale, making and printing labels, getting the orders put together for shipment, addressing shipping envelopes, and driving ten miles to the post office. And that doesn’t even include growing, harvesting, fermenting, cleaning, and drying the seeds. If we only charged $.50 for a packet of seeds plus the cost of a postage stamp, we'd be losing money! So, the $5.00 isn't just for shipping, it also pays for all the work and materials involved in getting your seeds to you.
