At KoKo Beauty Essentials, we strive to provide the best shipping rates as possible to our customers. However, we must also stay up to date with changes and holiday charges due to changes in USPS and UPS policies.
Starting on October 1, 2021, USPS will implement new service standards for First-Class mail and additional options. USPS will increase the transit time standards for mail traveling longer distances by 1-2 days, affecting delivering times. This will affect around 27 states, and increase deliver times to our customers U.S. territories and islands.
Likewise, due to the holiday season, holiday surcharges will be added on most packages shipped domestically from October 3, 2021 to December 26, 2021.
"Impacted services include Priority Mail Express (PME), Priority Mail (PM), First-Class Package Service (FCPS), Parcel Select, USPS Retail Ground and Parcel Return Service. The surcharges will range from $0.75 per package for PM and PME flat-rate boxes and envelopes up to $5 per piece for certain packages that weigh between 21 and 70 pounds."
For all U.S. orgin shipments, the Service Guarantee has been suspended since March 26, 2020. As of September 1, 2021 this suspension has not been removed. Like the USPS, UPS will also be applying Peak Surcharges to all domestic shipments
Tips for Our Customers:
- Order ahead of time: We cannot guarantee same day or week deliveries, especially during the holiday season. Please order items ahead of when you need them, especially if they are gifts for friends and family!
- Be aware of shipping delays: The holiday season is peak time for millions of orders shipping out daily. This could cause shipping delays on top of our carries proposed in-transit time.
