We do offer free shipping on orders above $500 and charge shipping fee below this cost. We try our best to keep our shipping costs as low as possible. We will continue to work hard to get them even lower so that we can pass these savings on to you. Most of the time our pricing is the best in the industry, even after shipping costs are added in. But sometimes we can be beat. When this happens we hope that our extremely fast shipping and excellent customer service will make up for the difference!
