Shipping once a week simplifies the process, and saves time & money.
Additionally, I do not drive, so it is not as simple as jumping in a car and driving off to the post office. Sometimes special shipping supplies also must be obtained, doing this more than once a week simply is not feasible at this time.
Seems best to have this be a set day of the week, and Thursday is the best day in my schedule for it at present.
Since these items go out on Thursdays, order & pay by 5 pm (Arizona MTN time) on Wednesday to be sure your item makes that Thursday’s shipping.
Which items does this apply to?
Non-Digital Non-Custom items for Services or from my handmade venue shops only. So this does not apply to digital items, nor custom items (those non-digital custom items ship the Thursday after they are completed), and this does not apply to items ordered from my shops which are hosted on sites in which said site handles the shipping (those sites have their own policies and handle the manufacturing & shipping aspects of the items I make available there).
For more details go here, this outlines in detail my policies for my handmade items & shops and most of those policies also apply to my services.
