If you're a frequent visitor of the SCL Shop, you may have noticed a slight price increase for most items today.
Well, the truth is it's not really an increase.
It all comes down to a small change I made with the shipping cost.
Previously shipping charges were $3.95 + $1.00 per item in your cart. By the end of your shopping trip you might end up with a $20-$30 shipping charge. That didn't seem right. It actually feels a little scammy and that's not how I want to run my business.
So I opted for a more direct approach.
Instead of charging $1 shipping per item, I decided to simply add $1 to the cost of each item.
In the long run you're paying the exact same price as before, but you'll be able to more easily estimate your total.
Now shipping is a flat $5.95 no matter what the size of your order.
Bonus for SCL VIP Members
This pricing model works out even better if you're an SCL VIP.
Why is that?
Well, SCL VIPs get a 20% discount on all orders.
This discount is taken off of the item cost and not the shipping costs.
So now that the most of the shipping cost has been transferred into the cost of the items, VIPs can get a bigger discount.
How Do I Become an SCL VIP?
It all takes place on the SCL Buy Me a Coffee page.
Here you will have two options:
- Buy Matt a Soda – This is just a donation you can make in $5 increments.
- Become an SCL VIP Member – This is a monthly subscription you can join that gives you various benefits including a discount at the SCL Shop.
If you choose to join the membership, I will contact you in a private message on Buy Me a Coffee to give you the details of how to access your discount. (I have to set it up manually.)
Why Should I Become a VIP now?
At the end of June 2021, the cost of the membership will be increasing.
BUT, if you sign up this month you can lock in the low price for as long as you're a member.
That's it! I hope to see you there.
