Whoops… I updated a bunch of my store plugins lately and I didn’t notice that one of the updates wiped out all my shipping customizations! I fixed it… Cases now ship free again!
A couple of you reached out to me last week about being unable to place orders. Long story short, the plugin I had been using to display recent purchases was causing issues with adding products to the shopping cart. Big whoops! I finally tracked down the issue and everything works again. I’m going to keep a closer eye on things, and I turned off auto-updates (an update caused the issues) so that I can be ready next time!
I’ve noticed a few Sezzle transactions where the order is never actually paid and so not completed. If you are having issues with Sezzle checkout, please e-mail me! I can send you your invoice link so you can retry the transaction with Paypal’s Pay in 4 instead.
If you can get to us here in Littleton/Highlands Ranch, Colorado, choose the local pickup option to save 15% off your order of any size. Because you are picking up your order, we don’t have to pay a shipping company, so we’re more than happy to pass on the savings to you! This offer is automatically made available if:
- your billing address is Colorado or any of the neighboring states with freeway access (Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico)
- you select the local pickup option when checking out
If you are NOT making a local pickup but you selected the local pickup option, no worries–we’ll invoice the difference and send your packages ASAP once paid!
After listening to your feedback, we’ve made some changes to our pricing structure. Now, not only do you get a discount on Shadowfire and Marilyn cases, but in addition they will ALWAYS ship for free across the 48 contiguous United States! No minimum purchases needed. So it doesn’t matter if you’re in New Hampshire, California, Washington, or Florida… if you are buying by the case, shipping is on us!
(Sorry, Alaska & Hawaii… we’re still working on figuring out some other nice things for you!)
Please note that due to this change, cases will not qualify for our storewide discount codes. They DO, however, qualify for our review-for-discount program! All discount codes generated from a review WILL reduce the cost of any Shadowfire and Marilyn cases you buy… and you will still get free shipping!
Store credit issued due to excess shipping credits from individual (non-case) purchases will always apply to anything in the store. As a reminder, if you purchase individual items, we will refund any excess shipping costs paid over $5 in the form of store credits towards your next purchase.
All Marilyn and Shadowfire vessels have arrived and are now in stock! I’m working on the website and will have all pre-order wording removed soon. Pre-orders are being packed and are shipping out tonight–they will be picked up or delivered to carriers tomorrow!
Hooray, our loan on Kiva has been fully funded! Thank you to every one who contributed and have supported us! This loan is only a small fraction of the funding needed to launch a vessel supply store, but it is vital and without it we would not be able to launch with the number of vessels we will be launching with.
In celebration, we are giving out an unprecedented 30% discount to EVERYONE who uses code THANKSKIVAF4 before the end of 2020. It is highly unlikely this high a discount will ever come again!
THANK YOU for your support, and I look forward to shipping all these vessels!
My manufacturer has finished stuffing the last boxes into the container and they are loading it onto a ship right now. I’ve filled customs power-of-attorney paperwork with my customs broker. The quicker that ship sails, the sooner vessels are distributed!
Right now, 26,000 vessels within this container (all Shadowfire and Marilyn vessels) are estimated to arrive, be sorted/checked in, and shipped in about:
(Above information accurate as of January 12, 2021.)
When I founded Februaryfour Trading, I promised not to take pre-orders and make you wait months for vessels. However, at this point it’s only a matter of weeks, and some of you have requested that I begin reservations for these vessels. This company was made to serve you, the candle-making community, so your wish is my command. To assuage my conscience, orders will only be charged when they are about to ship.
If you are comfortable with an estimated ship date in January 2021, then please pre-order to reserve yours before supplies run out! I tend to over-communicate, and I will post updates on the ship’s progress as I get it. If you have any questions, as always please feel free to contact me!
Welcome to Februaryfour Trading! We have been working since June to get to this point, but we can now launch with some of our vessels ready to ship right here from Highlands Ranch, Denver, Colorado. Please bear with us while the site is still under construction but ALL orders will be fulfilled immediately as soon as we see it!
If you would like to be notified of new vessels, please subscribe to our blog–announcements are posted here as things happen.
