Customers from the East Coast that travelled to Hawaii are shocked when they pay up to $35.00 to ship Hawaiian products. For example it’ll cost the customer about 4x more ($26.50) to ship a single box of tea from Hawaii to New York.

"Customers who are from the East Coast and have travelled to Hawaii are shocked when they pay up to $35.00 to ship Hawaiian products. For example it’ll cost the customer about $5.99 for tropical teas and $26.50 to ship from Hawaii to New York. The shipping costs are about 4x more than the product."
