Cotton Babies Shipping Problem
 
We did a little research last night to see why people were complaining so much about shipping and realized that when the price for colors was set at $17.95, it pushed it over the $4 flat rate zone and into the next flat rate zone of $6.75. Previously, you'd been able to buy one bumGenius for $16.95 and ship it for $4.

We corrected that problem so an order for one bumGenius! (any color) will ship for $4. Yes, I'm still charging for shipping. Shipping isn't free, plain and simple. However, I agree, a customer shouldn't pay $6.75 to ship one bumGenius. We've corrected that problem and are refunding the difference to customers who were affected by this.

Please keep in mind that all bumGenius orders from Cotton Babies, regardless of size, are shipping out (just as they always have) via Priority Mail or Fedex.

I'm sorry about the confusion and frustration for those of you who just wanted to have one diaper. If you have questions, please let me know.

Kindest regards,


Jenn, Owner

I can't get around sales tax, I'm sorry! It's against the law NOT to charge it... like, REALLY against the law and you can get in big trouble. We do have an in-store-only coupon right now that definitely makes it worth the trip for locals though. Msg me for details if that applies to you.

The auctions went very well. We closed out at just over $800 total between the four auctions which is almost enough to buy milk for the orphanage for one month. I just cannot imagine having to turn a hungry baby away because you didn't have food for him. We are brainstorming now about other things we can do with bumGenius to help raise money for these kids. In the meantime though, if you want to help, you can still donate here:

100% of everything that comes in will go straight to Sheltering Wings.

Kindest regards,

Jenn

Is it the wieght, or the insurance that makes the shipping go up? I was going to order a six pack of inserts, but the shipping was also 6.75. I will have to wait on this. I am told it is a good product, but the shipping is out there a bit.
FYI, I run my own buisness and get frustrated with fees that are not exactly what they should be. I should be charging a gas fee since the price of gas is over $1 more a gallon than when I began the buisness, but for now I am holding out because my customers deserve this.:2cents:

Technically (and legally) you are supposed to pay sales tax on your state income tax return for all online purchases that you were not charged tax on. So technically (and legally) you would have to pay that sales tax if you got them from Cotton Babies or someone else out of state.

I believe it is called Use tax. Is that correct? Just curious. :giggle:
