How does dotPhoto free shipping work?

In addition to other benefits, members of the dotPhoto Club Plan -- or other paid plans -- receive free economy shipping on all orders over $10 including photo shipments.

Free shipping is a significant benefit. 

We have had competitors that advertise "1 Cent Prints" whose shipping prices are so remarkably expensive that their orders are far more expensive than dotPhoto's 9 cent prints with free shipping. Shipping is often 50% of our competitors' orders, so dotphoto free shipping is a key benefit. 

Economy shipping is 3 to 10 business days, and we have also reduced shipping rates on Express with Tracking, 2-Day and Overnight shipping. (If you want a tracking number, please choose Express with Tracking 3-5 Days, 2-Day or Overnight. Economy is a US Postal Service function that is like a normal letter: there is no tracking between our shipment and your receipt.)

Free shipping applies to both photos and photo merchandise shipped to the United States.
Free shipping is based on the dollar amount of the cart, so print credits and bulk print purchases do not show up in the cart. However, you can still get free shipping on credits and bulk prints if you combine them with merchandise like a mug that is over $10. Anything that ships in the same order will ship free.
