Yes. As of 8/17 TRSC evaluated the markets current shipping prices and due to the steep rise in cost from our Carriers (FedEx and UPS) – TRSC was forced to raise our shipping prices for orders below $100 USD.
TRSC achieves our low cost shipping prices by doing volume. We subsidize the ACTUAL shipping costs to provide a low cost alternative to our customers. This also means that when orders are less than $100 USD the cost of shipping can frequently eclipse the value of the product.
To alleviate this issue our company decided to have a modest fee for orders less than $100USD which directly covers, shipping, packaging material, and labor.
Contact the team to make the change at least 24 hours before your order ships.
