As you help your customers order Mother’s Day gifts, due to current carrier delivery delays impacting about 10% of packages, we strongly recommend getting gift orders placed this week by 4/30 (Canada) and 5/1 (US).
All the details…
Due to the impact of COVID-19, all shipping carriers are experiencing a high volume of shipments while also operating with reduced headcount. As such, they have suspended any service delivery guarantees and are experiencing a 2-3 business day delivery delay, on average.
Typically, we rely on these service guarantees when communicating our shipping cutoff. We will be doing everything within our control to get Mother’s Day gifts delivered in time, such as assessing estimated delivery times by location and providing complimentary upgraded shipping accordingly. However, we are unable to account for what happens once the package leaves our facility, at which point packages could be subject to delays from the shipping carrier.
While the majority of orders should be delivered on time, it would be best to remind your customers of delivery delays so they can get their gift lists completed as soon as possible. Plus, you can boost your April pay day, earn your April monthly perks, and earn your regimen! Psst.. check out our newest curated gift bundles, on our site now!
