Glad to have an option to NOT have to order 10 cuttings at a time and to only pay just over $2 in shipping for 3 cuttings! Granted there's more risk than the EMS, but I'll definitely try this method again!. "
Aleyagarden's comments : thank you for this posting ! Before your shipment we had sent about 100 envelopes to various countries, the risk of non arrival is 100% on the buyer side but none was reported not arrived, the average time of travel being 8 days. Transport cost is 2 $ per envelope of 2 cuttings and 2.3 $ per envelope of 3 ( a mere 0.77 $ per cuttting ! ).
Our min. of sale is still 40$ minus 20% for at least 10 cuttings. But we don't send all envelopes the same day : would the first envelope be not received, the rest of the order can still be cancelled and refunded.
example ( 12 cuttings x 4.6 ) - 20% = 44.16 Envelopes : 4 x 2.3 = 9.2. Total cost per cutting to the door : 53.36/12 = 4.44$
