Shipping charges and transit times are our biggest obstacle when trying to bring the experience of a local tobacconist to the Internet. This change is going ensure that the customer is well-informed of both, creating the best possible shopping experience.
Albany, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
PipesandCigars.com is a leading online tobacconist, specializing in offering the Internet's widest selection of cigars, cigar sampler packs, humidors, pipes, pipe tobacco, and all varieties of smoking accessories. The company's website has continued to evolve over the years, as they innovate to ensure customers are receiving the optimal online tobacco shopping experience. PipesandCigars.com has announced the most recent upgrade to their website, providing estimated arrival dates for each of the available shipping methods based on each customer's zip code and the exact time of their order. This feature is designed to help customers select shipping options with more information, resulting in the customer making more informed decision and showing exactly what they can expect from the expedited delivery services.
This upgrade will allow customers to view the actual date that each shipping method would typically have their order delivered on, removing guesswork and other uncertainties, like which shipping methods count Saturday as a transit day or whether or not the order will leave PipesandCigars.com's facility the same day as it is ordered. These shipping estimates are not guaranteed due to circumstances outside PipesandCigars.com's control, however based on on-time delivery ratings from their shipping providers the company expects them to be over 99.5% accurate, and even in some cases having the packages delivered a day ahead of the estimate.
PipesandCigars.com Marketing Director Travis Lord was reached for comment, and stated "This might seem like a small change to our site, but it really is a major improvement and something that I've been trying to make happen for quite some time. Shipping charges are expensive, and I know that cigars, cigar sampler packs, pipes and our accessories are items that people frequently purchase as gifts or for special events that require arrival by specific dates. This change will show shoppers exactly what their hard-earned dollars are going towards when they are selecting a shipping option. It will also show the difference between transit times for our cigar free shipping options and the other paid options. It also will highlight cases where depending on where the customer lives, certain less-expensive shipping options might be just as fast or faster than premium expedited options. Shipping charges and transit times are our biggest obstacle when trying to bring the experience of a local tobacconist to the Internet. This change is going ensure that the customer is well-informed of both, creating the best possible shopping experience."
PipesandCigars.com is already one of the most innovative online cigar and pipe companies when it comes to shipping. They offer a huge variety of shipping options, as well as offering free UPS Ground Shipping on all orders over $100 within the USA, and free USPS Priority Mail Shipping on all orders being shipped to a military address, regardless of order size.
This website upgrade is the latest upgrade, with many more planned for the future. Recent upgrades include the addition of a feature that allows customers to review their purchases live on the site, and a re-orientation of cigar landing pages that allows customers to shop for cigars based on brand and line designations that show more detailed descriptions and divisions of specific brands and blends. This most recent change is timed perfectly to coincide with the holiday shopping season, when the company expect to receive a large volume of orders intended as gifts. Shoppers looking for the perfect cigar gift or pipe tobacco gift this holiday season will be able to order confidently, knowing when they'll receive their order to make sure their gift is timed perfectly.
