    Talked to OnRope1 again and got more info. They said that when a package is under 1 pound, they can send it out via Priority Mail which reduces the shipping cost for small orders to 6.80.

    At that price, the savings for the quantities most of us are looking at is around $3 - 4. While it's money not spent, it's probably not worth the time and effort. The other downside is that there is a minimum $10 order which means you have to buy at least 4 (I'm looking at you rstms ).

    So, I'm thinking it will be best to order individually but I will send them your HF user names to let them know to be on the lookout for your order and to ship it Priority Mail for the cost savings. Make sure you mention HF and put your user name in the comments of the order form.

    Thanks for looking into this. Much appreciated. I may wait until I have my hammocks made to place my order.

    So, this means that they are reducing the minimum order to 4 pieces, not 5, at $3.00 each and shipping USPS at $6.80? Would we need to do this as a group within a certain amount of time or would it work whenever we want to order?

    Yes, the minimum would be 4 and any quantity that weighs less than 1 lb shipped would go USPS for $6.80.

    They didn't indicate a specific time period but I put in a good word for Hammock Forums so I would hope this isn't a short-term arrangement.

    Just got another e-mail from OnRope1. They reminded me that orders shipped to Tennessee will have tax included. They also said that shipping would be $5.00!

    Just be sure to mention Hammock Forums in the comment section or if you call your order in.

    If you want to order 4 on the website, put 5 as the quantity and put a comment in that you only want 4.

    They were glad to know that the buckles have become popular.

    I put in my order and noticed there wasn't a comment section. I'm contacting OnRope1 to figure out how to let them know the order is from HF.

    Stand by. . .

    Heard back from OnRope1 and they suggested using the gift note section for making comments. Good luck and enjoy your buckles.

    One more note. The original invoice will have the UPS shipping charge. They will send a copy of the final invoice with the Priority Mail shipping charge when the order ships.
