Is FREE SHIPPING worth paying Sales Tax?
Many online retailers have begun to offer free shipping, whether it's free shipping on any order or free shipping on all orders over X amount of dollars. Meanwhile, the vast majority of them are charging customers sales tax on every item they purchase. So is "Free Shipping" really free?
Don't be fooled by the free shipping trend! More times than not, the sales tax you pay on your "free shipping" order is much more than our nominal shipping charge. We DO NOT charge sales tax on ANY of our products. This means that you will more than likely pay less on your order from us even though our competitors offer what they call "free shipping".
Take for an example a sample order of our products:
Let's say that Joshua who lives in Los Angeles ordered these items:
If Joshua ordered from one of the major retailers with "free shipping", his bill would look like this:
If Joshua ordered those same items from us his bill would look like this:
That's a savings of $19.38! Joshua could have included another pocket square if he shopped with us!
