If you’ve reviewed our Shipping Policies recently, you might have noticed that we’ve made a slight change to the way we offer free shipping. All of our packages that are shipped within the continental United States can now take advantage of free economy shipping. Worried about what that means for your packages? Don’t be! We’ve updated our policy to help provide even better service. Let us explain a few things, and we think you’ll agree that the new policy is a good one!
What is Englin’s Fine Footwear Economy Shipping?
Our new economy shipping option takes advantage of the competitive prices offered by different shipping companies like the USPS, UPS, or even FedEx. By finding the best shipping offer possible for an order, we’re able to pass those savings along to you!
Who Will Deliver My Order?
Once we’ve found the best shipping method, your order will come one of several ways.
• UPS Ground: Shipments delivered via UPS Ground will arrive at your door via UPS delivery driver. They typically arrive 3-5 business days after being shipped.
• UPS SurePost®: Shipments delivered via UPS SurePost® are picked up from us by UPS. UPS will usually deliver them to your local post office then, and the USPS will deliver it to you. There may be instances where UPS will deliver the package to you, but that’s very dependent on UPS logistics and routes. Packages delivered via UPS SurePost® will usually arrive at their destination 1 day after they would arrive via UPS Ground.
• USPS Priority Mail: Shipments delivered via USPS Priority Mail will be delivered by the United States Postal Service to the shipping destination. These packages will usually arrive 1-3 business days after being shipped.
What is the Benefit of Englin’s Free Economy Shipping?
Taking advantage of our new economy shipping option means that there’s a much better chance that you can eliminate waiting the whole weekend for your new shoes to arrive! Unlike UPS, the USPS considers Saturday a standard delivery day. If the USPS will be doing the final delivery of your package to you, it means you might not have to wait all weekend to receive it on Monday! The USPS is also better equipped for delivery across the entire United States, so areas that UPS may have trouble delivering to should be no problem for USPS delivery. There are some cases where your package will actually arrive faster under our new free shipping policy than it would have with our old one.
The benefit to you we’re most excited to be able to offer is that we’re going to be able to begin carrying a wider range of products on our website! The new economy shipping program is going to allow us to carry shoe care products like Birkenstock’s Deluxe Shoe Care Kit, a larger variety of children’s shoes, and more. We think you’ll love the new products we’re going to be able to carry thanks to our new policy, and we’re excited to add a new dimension to your online shopping experience with Englin’s Fine Footwear.
Am I Still Able to Upgrade My Shipping?
Of course you are! In fact, we’re adding a new upgrade to our shipping options. If you’re concerned about using our free shipping option, you can upgrade to UPS Ground for just $5.00. In most cases, you shouldn’t need to use this option, but if you’re concerned about your package delivery for any reason we want you to be able to have access to the shipping method you most trust. You’ll also still be able to upgrade your shipping to UPS 2nd Day Air for $25.00 and UPS Next Day Air for $50.00 if you need your delivery ASAP.
We hope that you’re as excited about our new policy as we are! Free shipping for our customers is a huge part of our online service promise, and the updates to our policy are going to allow us to serve you even better than before. If you have any questions about this policy change, please reach out to us!
