Free Shipping Isn’t Free

 As JNK South's mission is to provide the best product at reasonable prices, we calculate shipping costs instead of charging flat shipping rates. Charging a flat rate is probably okay if you’re purchasing just one item, but if you buy more than one, shipping costs easily begin to skyrocket. This table shows how your shipping costs easily add up:

The point is the competitor charges the same fees within their price regardless of quantity ordered. The shipping charges go down incrementally as more product is purchased. As our product is substantial, the free shipping model does not allow us to offer reasonable prices to you. Even ordering just two items can really change the costs!
