COMC Shipping Update

At the beginning of this year, USPS implemented a shipping rate increase across all of their major services. After analyzing our shipping rates, which we haven’t touched in the last 4 years, we made some adjustments that will allow us to provide faster shipping times. We are also officially announcing some new shipping services to help our Canadian customers. Additionally, we will now provide estimated delivery dates for each shipping service based on your location to help you choose the best option for your orders.

Domestic Orders

Starting today, Domestic flat rate shipping costs $3.99 using our Economy service. For faster delivery, you can purchase USPS Priority shipping for $9.99. Economy and Priority shipments take an average of three business days to package and ship. Please note that orders that exceed 50 cards may take up to one week to package and ship. If you’d like your Economy or Priority order to ship in one day, you can select Economy Rushed or Priority Rushed for $0.25 per additional card. USPS Express, our fastest shipping service, is shipped the same day if your order is placed by 10:00 AM PST. The cost of USPS Express is $29.99 for your first item plus $0.50 per additional item.

Orders to Canada

In Canada, you can now avoid the hassle of dealing with customs by shipping through Canada Post. Because we regularly drive shipments across the border, we now charge duties when you place your shipment request, alleviating you of any surprise fees while eliminating the provincial tax and Canadian Border Service Agency handling fees. If you placed orders with us over the past six months, you may have received your shipment via Canada Post with duties paid. We will not retroactively charge duties for past orders but we will collect it on all future shipments placed through Canada Post.

Canada Post orders placed before 11:59 PM PST each Tuesday are either shipped from our Canadian office later the same week (for rush service) or the following week (for non-rushed service). Economy flat rate shipping, using Canada Post Lettermail, costs $4.99. For larger orders and those that exceed $50 in value, we recommend upgrading to Regular Parcel, which provides you with a tracking number so you’ll always know where your package is. To use our fastest Canada Post option, select Xpresspost. USPS Priority Express International is also available to Canadian customers for $51.99 for your first item and $0.50 per additional item.

Please note: All Canada Post options factor in the CAD/USD exchange rate and may fluctuate based on the current value of each currency.

Other International Orders

For our international customers outside of Canada, Economy flat rate orders cost $4.99. Tracked and expedited services are also available using USPS Priority and Express. We are also working on some more budget-friendly tracked options for our international customers, so stay tuned to the COMC Blog for more updates.
