GOOD NEWS ABOUT PACKING SLIPS!

February 1, 2023

You may have noticed in the last two months, there were no packing lists included in your shipments. Our warehouse is implementing some environmental and cost saving measures and informed us they would no longer be including printed packing slips with our orders. We asked kindly and our warehouse agreed - they will reinstate printed packing slips for all of our wholesale orders! We know how handy these are when receiving inventory to your shops and as a record of past orders. 

You can also find an invoice for any of your orders in the Order History section of your wholesale account ordering portal home page. Click on any order and you'll see the option to print the invoice. When you select that option, you may then choose whether to print it, or save as a pdf.

NOTE on new shipping cost plan: no matter how much you order, or what size products you purchase, you will only pay $38 for domestic shipping. International shipping has returned to the actual USPS Priority Mail International cost.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

January 18, 2023

Another year under our belts, and a brand new year at our feet. Here's to stepping into it together!

A note on order Packing Slips - our warehouse decided in order to save trees, paper, and printing, they will no longer be including a printed packing slip in our shipments.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause for your receiving procedures. Our suggestion of a workaround for this is to save the automatic order confirmation email you receive and use this when checking your order into the shop. This is the same list that is used when fulfilling your order, so if you save it as a pdf, you'll be able to check off or highlight items digitally, or print it out to reconcile your orders manually. 

You can also find an invoice for any of your orders in the Order History section of your wholesale account ordering portal home page. Click on any order and you'll see the option to print the invoice. When you select that option, you may then choose whether to print it, or save as a pdf.

A NOTE ABOUT NEW SHIPPING COST SET-UP

November 15, 2022

You may have noticed that after 2 1/2 years of offering free domestic shipping to wholesale (and $30 off for international shops), we have changed our wholesale shipping cost set-up. 

No matter how much you order, or what size products you purchase, you will only pay $38 for domestic shipping, and international shipping has returned to the actual USPS Priority Mail International cost.

  • We did a deep analysis of our actual shipping costs for U.S. wholesale shipments and found that $38 would cover most of our shipping costs.
  • The $38 figure we determined is slightly less than our average shipping cost, and is below 10% of the average wholesale order value.
  • The advantage for shops is that you can order Knitter's Blocks, Maker's Boards, and other large or heavy products without incurring additional shipping costs.

Another hidden benefit of this set-up is that Cocoknits charges actual USPS shipping rates for direct-to-customers retail orders on our website. This incentivizes customers to purchase from their LYS. 


We began the free shipping offer in an effort to ease the strain that the pandemic put on small businesses. Obviously, times are still a bit tough and the costs of manufacturing, shipping, and warehousing continue to rise significantly, so offering free shipping is no longer sustainable for us. We've tried to create the most equitable set-up that will benefit us all.

Thank you for understanding.

ARE YOU GOING TO RHINEBECK?

October 11, 2022

Folks are excited to be back together at NYS Sheep + Wool Festival - are you going?

Unfortunately, Cocoknits isn't able to attend this year, but we're wondering if any of you wonderful folks will be - and bringing some Cocoknits goodies to sell? We've had people ask if there will be some place they can buy our products at Rhinebeck, and we'd love to shout out your booth location on social media so fans can find you! Email me (wholesale@cocoknits.com) and let me know your location.

We appreciate your ongoing support and if there are other ways we can continue to support you, please let us know.

Thanks, ~ Jennifer (Wholesale Director)
