Here at The Butters, I'm unrepentantly obsessed with efficiency, ease of use, and simplicity. It's why we offer one of the most robust and mature shopping experiences among companies of any size. Today, we're taking our biggest step forward:
Every single item, everyday. What you see is what you pay. Yes, that even includes tax! This is big news. No- enormous news! I've had it on my mind for over a year and I'm thrilled to be able to share it with ya!
With this change, you will notice that our pricing per item has adjusted $1-$5 depending on modern shipping costs. We also rolled in some product cost adjustments that I had held off on last year - there was more than enough change last year.
This is the biggest change we’ve ever had, but obviously it's with more than good reason. On top the of simplicity and predictability offered to you by flat pricing, there's a ton of other benefits for you, us, and me personally.
Even better customer service - We already offer amazing support for our creations but now we'll be able to offer regular hours for sales, service and support!
We now offer a $15/hr starting wage and paid time off. If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter you saw us announce a plan for a $17/hr starting wage for 2022, if we reach our sales goal of 500K this year. This helps us in sheer numbers and it removes the biggest barrier to purchase remaining on getthebutters.com
Lower international free shipping threshold! Cheaper express shipping! Free local delivery!
Bigger discounts when we have our rare sales/codes.
We'll be able to wholesale more Butters to stores all over the world. Our low pricing makes many items impossible to sell at the industry standard discount. I have not wanted to artificially inflate our pricing. Uncapitalistically yet characteristically, I'd just left that money on the table the past 5 years while I figured it out. This adjustment fixes that without actually charging you more just because.
It'll helps us afford our upcoming move into a dedicated space. Dedicated space means bigger stock, more variety, and the return of custom products.
On a personal level, dedicated space means I'll have my own home again for the first time in 5 years. I'll be able to mentally leave work more often, which is gonna make me a better leader for my growing team of 8, creator for you, and person for myself.
Although there's a ton of benefits, if you're on a budget, this might be unwelcome news in some ways. But don't worry, our Hook Up program isn't going anywhere. With adjusted pricing, it's actually more valuable than ever. It's also easier than ever with codes that last 2 full years. We totally understand that it's unlikely you're going to suddenly not be broke in 6 months, so let's just make it easier for you with a little less paperwork!
So, that's the plan. I have committed to this plan for 90 days. After that we are going to go back and look at the numbers to make sure that this was a business smart decision. But I'm confident this is going to turn out to be the smartest thing I've ever done for the company, and for you.
I can't thank y'all enough for your support through all these years, and in the future. This career path provides me a great sense of peace and accomplishment everyday. I could not do it without you. I will continue offering you the value and service you deserve from now to eternity.
Peace & Moisture
