Changes to Free Shipping for Retail Accounts Coming Next Month

Effective at the close of business on Jan. 5, 2018, the minimum order value (MOV) for retail accounts to receive free shipping is increasing to $350 ($450 Can.). The flat shipping rate paid for orders below those thresholds is also increasing to $11.99 ($13.99 Can.). Our research shows that most retailers place orders in excess of these minimum order values, meaning the increases should have minimal effect on your business.
