This is a quick reference to show you how it works. More details at the Shipping & Handling page.
Domestic orders totalling $150 or more ship free.
The cart is set to charge shipping based on item weight, zone, and selected service, and the rates are imported and updated by my shopping cart software from the USPS - I don't set them manually except where noted below. USPS First Class Commercial is the default, and that's the best option for 85% of orders since it comes with tracking and Priority doesn't always get there any faster, esp. post-COVID.
Here's how it breaks down assuming you're in Zone 9, which is 1,800+ miles away from me.
Temporary Holiday Rate Increase
From October 18th to December 27th 2020, USPS will add $0.25 to each First Class rate and $0.40 to each Priority rate shown below
|Up to 8 oz||$4.17||USPS First Class|
|9 to 12 oz||$4.96||USPS First Class|
|13 to 15.99 oz||$6.20||USPS First Class|
|Fits in 8x5x1 box*||$7.90||USPS Small Flat Rate Priority|
|Up to 19.99 lbs, fits in 10x8x4 box**||$10.00||Cubic Shoebox|
|Not over 2 lbs||$11.69||Cart-calculated weight-based Priority|
|Not over 3 lbs||$16.24||Cart-calculated weight-based Priority|
|Not over 4 lbs||$18.64||Cart-calculated weight-based Priority|
|Not over 5 lbs||$21.51||Cart-calculated weight-based Priority|
*My cart software doesn't import this one - I set it manually since it will provide some savings to some customers, but the catch is that your order has to fit inside the USPS-branded box. These will hold about 8 bottles or vials or about 6 votive candles (though not much else). Other candles will not fit. If you choose Small Flat Rate Priority and your order won't fit, or if you are in a U.S. territory subject to a higher shipping rate, we'll send you a Paypal invoice for the difference.
**My cart software doesn't import this one - I set it manually since it will provide some savings to some customers, but the catch is that your order has to fit inside a 10x8x4 box - roughly shoe box sized - and it has to weigh less than 20 pounds. Just about anything will fit into this box unless you have more than two large candles or full-size glass altar pakets. If you have a larger candle order, you'll save money on shipping - and probably get your order faster, too - if you divide it into more than one order. Feel free to write before checking out to talk about the best options in this case. If you choose the Cubic Shoebox option and your order won't fit, or if you are in a U.S. territory subject to a higher shipping rate, we'll send you a Paypal invoice for the difference.
USPS First Class Mail International is available for packages up to four pounds and is the most economical option. Above that, you might save money by breaking your order up into smaller orders - feel free to write me and we'll see what your best options are. I will do my best to work with you on the most reasonable options.

|49 to 64 oz||$48.24||$60.59||USPS First Class|
|Small Flat Rate Box (8x5x1)*||$27.00||$37.15||USPS Priority Flat Rate|
|Not over 5 lbs||$46 to $56**||$74.65||USPS Priority Weight-Based|
*This box will hold up to 6 votive candles or about 8 bottles of oil or vials of powders or curios.
