Each item on our website has been designated a “shipping count”. The shipping count corresponds to the chart above so that you can easily denote that amount we will charge for shipping. When ordering multiple items at the same time determining the shipping charge is as easy as summing up the shipping counts for each item and then looking at the corresponding total on this chart.
Here are some examples:
- When purchasing a single DVD with a shipping count of 1. The shipping charge will be $4.50
- When purchasing 2 DVD’s, each with a shipping count of 1. The sum is 2, therefore the shipping charge will be $5.50
- When purchasing 5 DVD’s. Two of the DVD’s have a shipping count of 3, while the remaining 3 DVD’s have a shipping count of 1. The sum is 9 (3+3+1+1+1), therefore the shipping charge will be $19.00
Q: Is there any logic behind these price points and amounts for shipping?
A: The chart above is not arbitrary by any means. In fact, this chart is designed to mimic as closely as we possibly could to the amounts we are charged by Canada Post when we ship to you. For example, the price jump between 2.5 and 3 results from the very specific size limitation for Canada Post LetterMail and our need to jump to Canada Post Expedited service.
Q: How can I take advantage of this shipping method?
A: Know where the price breaks are, and how to take advantage of each:
- If you’re buying 1 DVD and paying $4.50 for shipping, Consider buying that second DVD now and only add $1.00 more for shipping instead of buying that second DVD next week and having to pay another $4.50
- If your shipping count has reached 3 the shipping charge is $15.00; you could add up to 3 additional DVD’s with a shipping count of 1 each and still only pay $15.00 for shipping.
