New US Shipping Option

Simply Superheroes Blog | New US Shipping Option

Occasionally we receive calls from customers who need their order shipped by an upcoming day (such as for a birthday party). Let’s say they call us on a Tuesday and the birthday party is on Saturday. They don’t need to spend more for Express Shipping but they are not sure whether or not their shipment will arrive via US Postal Mail in time if they opted for Standard Shipping (or Free Shipping if their order is $25 or over).

Enter Priority Shipping. This is a middle-tier option for when you need it sooner than later…but not immediately.

At checkout you now have the following options if your order is under $25:

Economy Shipping for $3.99 (4-8 business days depending on shipment location from NJ)
Priority Shipping for $5.99 (3-4 business days depending on shipment location from NJ)
Express Shipping for $19.99 (1-2 business days)

If your order is $25 or older, you now have these shipping options:

Free Shipping (4-8 business days depending on shipment location from NJ)
Priority Shipping for $5.99 (3-4 business days depending on shipment location from NJ)
Express Shipping for $19.99 (1-2 business days)

We admit the time span for the above shipping times to arrive is conservative. If the US Postal Service cuts out Saturday delivery, these shipment times may become more accurate.

For Economy (formerly known as Standard) Shipping and Free Shipping, the closer you are to us in NJ, the estimated time of arrival for your package can be reduced by at least a day while those who live on the West Coast may need to add an additional day.

Also for Economy and Free Shipping, we will be rolling out Federal Express SmartPost within the next week. SmartPost teams Fed Ex and the USPS together. When you receive the tracking number for your shipment, you will be able to view the status of your shipment online more accurately than through USPS.

These updates will be including in our shipping policy.
