We are thrilled to announce that starting February 1, 2019, we will be offering Free Shipping to the contiguous United States and Canada – making it that much easier to bring the Best of Nature to Humankind. Now you can enjoy the same great products, the same unmatched quality, and the best of nature without paying shipping and handling! This means that you can order any product at any time during the month with no additional charges other than applicable taxes.
Our single-minded focus on delivering only the finest quality product has led us to invest heavily in a unique new shipping structure. Over the past three years, inflation has risen 6.04%* and Univera has absorbed the costs and held the line on any price increases. In order to keep up with the rising costs of premium ingredients and to streamline our delivery system, product prices will be adjusted accordingly.
How will this affect you? Historically, on average, shipping and handling have been approximately 10% of your total purchase with Univera. However, with a sizable corporate investment, we are pleased to announce a nominal price adjustment on all products effective February 1, 2019.
Because of the efficiencies we are putting in place, this may actually reduce the overall cost of your orders going forward; depending on your location and the composition of your order.
Our innovative Free Shipping program offers FedEx Ground in the 48 contiguous United States for orders over $190 pretax, and FedEx SmartPost in the contiguous United States for orders under $190 pretax. Canada Post will be offered free of charge in Canada. Expedited shipping will also be available at an additional cost. Please note that FedEx Ground does not deliver to PO Boxes, therefore PO Box shipments will be delivered via USPS. Free shipping is not available to those in Hawaii, Alaska, or any U.S. territories.
We look to this historic announcement as just another way in which Univera is leading our industry by being the first major company to offer Free Shipping on any product, at any time. If you have specific questions, please call Customer Care in the US at 877-627-4787 and in CA at 800-363-1890.
