Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) November 10, 2014
Pooki’s Mahi announced today it is one of several featured merchants for FreeShippingDay.com.
Not every ecommerce etailer in the Food & Beverage industry can afford to provide zero shipping cost to its customers. The margins are too low and offering zero cost shipping is prohibitive. Pooki’s Mahi extends its product catalogue with shipping included to the Lower 48 states to the channel's customers. Pooki’s Mahi’s orders are fulfilled within two business days and arrive at the customers between one to three days in the Lower 48 states depending on location.
Free Shipping Day is a one-day, online-shopping event when thousands of merchants offer zero cost shipping with delivery by Christmas Eve. Now in its seventh year, Free Shipping Day is on Thursday, December 18th, near the tail end of shopping season.
“There were three big pain points for Pooki’s Mahi customers: cost of shipping (added fees at checkout), shipping time, and receiving ordered products damaged. Customers expect to order products and have their purchases delivered to the final destination undamaged within two to three business days. Customers do not want to wait beyond five business days for their orders. If customers do wait, then they might as well go to the nearest Pooki’s Mahi wholesaler that carries our products,” says Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller.
Les explains, “Our fastest delivery time in 2014 was 4 hours. Our average delivery time hovers between one to two days in the Lower 48 states. Pooki’s Mahi’s customers do not pay extra for the fast delivery.”
Participation will drive awareness for Pooki’s Mahi brand as well as bring 100% Kona coffee pods and award-winning teas to new customers.
