Additional Shipping Charges - "Shipping Surcharges"


Why do we occasionally have shipping surcharges?

There are some items that are economically difficult for us to offer free shipping. These items tend to be large, oddly shaped, heavy or ship separate from your order main order. These items do not qualify for free shipping and a "Shipping Surcharge" will be added at checkout. 

At Urban Farmer our goal is to never make money on shipping. We try to break even on shipping cost at best. Besides the actual postage we pay the carrier, we must factor in the cost of packaging materials, labor, utilities, storage and credit card processing fees. If you think there is a mistake or an unfair charge to your order we want to know. Please email us at
