Shipping jewelry for the holidays? These are the cutoff times
Shipping jewelry can be a challenge on its own, but a global pandemic and strained carrier networks will make things more difficult.
Delays and departure from the status quo will be the norm, but you can limit disruptions to your business by adhering to shipping best practices.
Keeping these carrier cutoff times in mind will also help shape your shipping strategy for the remainder of the year.
