Some other magic companies ship every product for free. Why don’t you offer free shipping on every order?
Well, if you’re a member of our exclusive Vanishing Inc.+ program, you do actually get free or discounted shipping on every order. You also get access to our Vanishing Inc. Masterclass and VI Studio streaming library. But, if you’re asking this question, we can probably assume that you are not yet a member.
Every decision we make revolves around providing the best possible experience. After assessing the situation, we found that the methods required to ship every order for free can take 6-8 weeks to arrive in some cases. As such, it is the complete opposite of a good experience and not worth the tradeoff to save a few dollars on an order. Our entire team is filled with professional magicians and we all know that waiting for new magic is the worst! So, for us, offering the fastest affordable shipping is more beneficial than free shipping. These paid options are also typically more reliable.
We also would like to remind you that we have extremely low thresholds for free shipping. In the US any order of $45 or more ships for free, while in the UK, any order of £40 or more ships for free. For our international friends, all you need to do is hit the $75 threshold to get free shipping.
And, if your order contains downloads, that counts toward your free shipping threshold!
