Through much internal struggling and my debating the pros and cons, I have decided to re-launch my online sales division. I may have related the story to some of you that I stopped the online component of my business because the success rate through USPS (United States Postal Service) was very low, and packages went missing and things would break.
At this stage of the company, the only economical means to ship out my kimchi is still through USPS. However, I have decided to go with 16oz plastic jars this time around with the company I purchase my glass jars from. I am hoping that the plastic jars will hold up much better to withstand compression, impact and breakage during transit.
The only size that will be offered online is the 16oz jars, because the bottle company that I purchase my glass jars from do not currently produce 32oz plastic jars. The price of the 16oz jars sold online will be priced at $9.00/jar instead of the regular price of $10.00/jar. This is to accommodate customers that wish to purchase 32oz jars for $18.00, or more.
The smallest shippable flat rate box will be a medium box, and it could hold up to six 16oz jars. Shipping prices will be approximately $13.50.
I have included photos of the new 16oz plastic jars for your reference.
Please feel free to contact with any questions or concerns, and to place an order.
