Ultra PRO's online store is young, only about a year old, and while it has come a long way from our initial soft launch in late 2019, we still are learning and exploring how to improve our operations. COVID and the holiday shopping season means we have seen the need for international shipping jump through the roof. With transparency in mind, we want to give you an insight to where our thinking has been and where we plan to end up.
We launched shop.ultrapro.com for domestic shipping only, meaning only addresses within the USA could receive orders from our store. In an attempt to share the love, in early 2020 we opened international shipping to test it out. Unfortunately, USPS let us down. Shipments were taking weeks longer to arrive than expected which resulted in unrecoverable chargebacks - meaning people requested refunds for items that had already been shipped - so Ultra PRO no longer had the product, nor the funds, nor the shipping fees. Needless to say, we shut that down immediately while we looked for alternate solutions.
In an effort to mitigate losses, we chose a more reliable shipping option for our friends outside of the USA. We found UPS to be not only the most reliable, but also the easiest to work with when shipping issues arise. We also understood, of course, that the price for reliability is not small, which is where most of your concerns come into play. We've been asked, "why the heck does it cost $70 to ship a playmat to Norway?!" And the reason is guaranteed and expedited shipping.
With the goal of reducing shipping prices for customers while still offering a more reliable service, we are going to work through our trust issues with USPS. It’s time to give them another shot. We have added USPS Global Priority, and Global Express to our shipping choices. We are also going to work on clearer communication by including a disclaimer for processing time to better protect us if chargeback requests should arise. We believe that the more informed you are about where your stuff is, the less likely you are to get concerned and request a refund.
Please also note, the pandemic has had unprecedented impact on warehouse and shipping around the globe. Processing times may take longer than usual due to reduced staff to meet strict social distancing requirements. We apologize for the inconvenience while we not only protect your collectibles, but also protect our employees in these challenging times.
All in all, we are learning, and your questions and concerns are what make us better. We apologize for any inconveniences you have experienced shopping with Ultra PRO in 2020, but we are taking active steps to improve your shopping experience for 2021.
Thank you for choosing Ultra PRO!
Here at Ultra PRO, we are always looking for ways to innovate and improve our products, and we hope these improvements are as exciting for you as they are for us.
- New US sourced materials mean quick and easier production of our sleeves!
- The slight color difference between the New Eclipse Matte and existing Eclipse Matte means NEW SKUs
- Improved ChromaFusion formula results in a seal that is stronger than ever!
We’ve protected your trading cards – now, it's time to protect you. Ultra PRO has joined the fight against the global COVID-19 pandemic by switching our manufacturing from gaming and collectibles accessories to PPE.
The pandemic has forced us to change how we here at Ultra PRO maintain a safe workplace. This presented several problems that required solutions. An immediate issue was the procurement of PPE for our own employees to work safely, especially face masks.
Unfortunately, we do not have the capabilities to manufacture masks up to our high standards.
To solve this problem, we leveraged our extensive network and experience in overseas sourcing to vet and identify overseas vendors, securing a reliable supply chain for disposable face masks.
We have also taken note of the unethical price gouging in the open market by profiteers and fraudsters. We've decided to share our solution with the hobby shop community as a small way to give back to the thousands of stores that have partnered with us for so long.
We are currently procuring disposable face masks at what we feel is a reasonable cost.
While it is higher than typical market pricing prior to the pandemic, we believe this expense is well worth the effort to prevent COVID-19 transmissions, and reasonably priced given the current market conditions.
To purchase these disposable face masks at cost for your store and employees, visit our online shop at http://shop.ultrapro.com and use the promo code provided to you by our retailer program manager.
Please note that these disposable face masks are CE approved, but not FDA approved as we understand FDA approval is not required for non-medical use. These disposable face masks have a filtration efficiency rating of BFE ≥ 95%, but do not carry “N95” or “KN95” ratings.
Stay safe and apart, but stay connected and support each other. We’re in this together.
