If you choose priority mail as the option, 4.90, (half of 9.80) is deducted from the total, by me manually not by the computer system. If you choose any UPS option, half the shipping cost is added to the total.

For UPS orders, your credit card is charged twice, first for the product total, and then for the shipping charge. Priority mail orders has the shipping included in the total so your card is only charged once.

Are you having temps below freezing? As long as the temp is above 32 the cold is a good thing. If it is below freezing there is a chance it might freeze depending on how the package is handled by UPS or the post office, so the quicker it gets there the better. I am putting the plants in thermal insulated bags which should prevent freezing for at least 24 hours if not longer. I have not started using heat packs yet because I didn't think anybody was having freezing weather yet, but I can if you request it.

If there is a danger of freezing, then UPS overnight or 2 day would be the best bet. In general, I have far fewer problems shipping plants in the winter than in the hot summer. With UPS I guarantee the plants.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, we're going to have mid-20s for nighttime temps next week, so I've been a bit worried at the idea of shipping plants. Normally I wouldn't bother to try, but I had issues with my tank's lighting and by the time it was resolved most of the plants had died. Staring at an empty box of water all winter isn't too appealing, so I guess I'll bite my nails and hope for the best.

Thanks again. :)

Honestly, I ship plants all winter long with very few problems, much less problems in the winter than the summer. Below freezing temps at night is usually not the problem, the package is indoors at night. Its during the day and if the package is left outside when nobody is home to recieve it. Thats when its vulnerable.
