Built by Bees Shipping Estimates
Built by Bees Shipping includes flat rate shippings to most USA locations, including Hawaii and Alaska. At our discretion, for certain rural areas, we may elect to use the US Postal Service. Below is a map showing estimated shipping times. Regardless of where you live, flat rate shipping ensures your shipping cost is capped. Whether you ship one or 10 pounds, your shipping costs remain the same.
Your shipping zone determines your flat rate shipping rate for orders below $69 (or higher based on you zone). The number of business days to ship (in the map below) loosely correlates to your UPS shipping zone (from 30341).
Effective, February 1, 2021, customers shipping to Zones 1 – 3 receive free shipping once their order reaches $69.
If you are shipping to Zone 4, receive free shipping when your order reaches $79.
If you are shipping to Zone 5, receive free shipping when your order reaches $95.

We ship glass jars and each shipment is carefully hand-packed adhering to UPS shipping requirements. We use corrugated boxes with ample fill and bubble pack. The majority of orders are processed and shipped the same day., while shipping 100% of orders received by 3 pm e.s.t..
We automatically include insurance on UPS Ground shipments up to the purchase price or $99, whichever is greater. USPS orders also include insurance up to $50 for each package. Customers are responsible for requesting and paying for more insurance on UPS orders over $99 and USPS shipments of $50 or more.
Requesting Extra Insurance
If you wish to insure your package for over $100, please call us at 770-454-9400 to request more insurance for your package. Customer orders over $500, however, automatically receive full insurance included and paid for by Built by Bees.
We intentionally offer flat rate shipping and subsidize this as an important cost of doing business. Consequently, Built by Bees pays a portion of shipping costs for the majority of orders. Shipping is expensive and can be a decision factor in most purchases. Just remember, you can always receive free shipping on orders over $69 for most US locations.
