This email concerning an explanation just arrrived:
Thank you for your recent email regarding our shipping costs. I apologize that you feel our shipping is high. MidwayUSA's "Fair & Honest" method of calculating Postage, Handling and Insurance allows Customers to only pay the costs associated with getting their order from MidwayUSA to their door. These charges are calculated based on the destination, method of shipment, number of packages, weight and dimensions of packages, and packing material and labor. This Special Handling fee offsets the higher cost of processing small retail orders (under $25), so that we can continue to give our Customers the best overall pricing in the industry. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. If you have any additional questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-243-3220. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT; and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CT. You may also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for Your Business!
MidwayUSA Customer Service
