How Do I Lower This Shipping Cost?


(1) The More You Ship, The Less Per Item - "Combine and Save"
Only ShopToMyDoor offers a consolidation service called "Combine and Save", where items from multiple stores are combined and shipped as one to lower your overall shipping cost. As with all shipping companies, a minimum charge applies to all shipments, and when you ship multiple small shipments, you end up paying multiple minimum charges. Combine and Save eliminates this multiple minimums by combining items from any number of stores and shipping them as one. The more stores you shop from, the more you save and can save up to 80% compared to other companies.

(3) Request For Repackaging Always

Many items will arrive from stores such as Amazon with packaging boxes that are way bigger than the actual item been shipped. Unlike other companies that will ship items as they come in the same big box they came in, our free repackaging service removes items from bogus shipping boxes, and repack them to fit a much smaller space, thereby saving you lots of money on volume/dimensional weights. 


A knife received in this big box from Amazon

Total Weight = 2 pounds

Chargabele Weight = 5 pounds

Shipping Cost = $27.95   


        With free repackaging, same item is repacked in an envelope

        Total Weight = 2 pounds

         Chargabele Weight = 2 pounds

         Shipping Cost = $17.18

Google “item shipped in big box” to see how prevalent this issue is. You may have lost a lot over the years with other services

(4) Remove Shoe Boxes

If there is anything that can quickly drive up the cost of your shipment through excess volume weight, it is shipping shoes in their original boxes. We don’t use them anyway, so why ship them. 
To ensure we always save you money this way, be sure to log into your account, click on “My Accounts”, go to “Settings” and be sure to let us know to ship all shoes without the shoe boxes.

Shipping via air can cost upwards of $3.5/pound, that for Ocean is typically less than $1/pound. As a rule of thumb, you save about 75% on Ocean shipping compared to air. For bulky items use Ocean option to save plenty money, while increasing your purchasing power. For Nigeria, Shoptomydoor now ships 3 to 4 containers weekly via Ocean with guaranteed delivery in 6 to 8 weeks.

With our split system, you can select to ship urgent items via air, and the less urgent via sea. Our system automatically detects a split request, and we charge a small. Once the payment is made, we will set some to go via air, and the rest via sea.
