We frequently get questions about why we offer an in-house rush service-- why everyone's order cannot be shipped automatically the next business day. That is our goal, but...
When you place your order, there may be hundreds of orders in the picking que ahead of yours. We think it's only fair that we process orders in the order they are received to us, with very few exceptions. The number of orders at any given time greatly fluctuates. Sometimes we get a few days behind, it happens, even with our warehouse shipping crew working overtime. That's where the Rush option comes in. We think it's only fair that those who wish to be bumped to the front of the line should have to pay for it. When it comes right down to it, by offering a in-house Rush option, we are able to reduce shipping costs across the board with free/reduced shipping promotions.
With the in-house Rush option, everyone wins. Those who really need their order quickly pay an extra $1.95 to jump to the head of the line. Those who would rather save on shipping costs may do so as well by not selecting the Rush option. ACOT wins as well by not having to bring in temporary employees during our peak times - we have found that the large number of mis-picked orders greatly increases when we bring in temps. By offering the Rush option, it helps us keep our costs down which in turn allows us to pass on savings to our customers in the form of promo codes, sales and great deals.
