As part of Mighty Ape’s commitment to being an environmentally sustainable e-commerce store, we have a minimum order value of $10 (excluding shipping) on all physical orders.
Mighty Ape is a delivery business, which means that every order contains additional packaging materials, is driven by courier, and in many cases is flown by plane. This all adds up to have an impact on the environment. Implementing a minimum order value is an effective tool that will assist us in reducing the volume of small deliveries that go out each day. This will help us to reduce the packaging use and carbon footprint of small orders, and also encourages more sustainable shopping habits.
We do appreciate that this may be an inconvenience for some customers but we believe that the benefits of this small change outweigh the negatives. If you are intending to order a number of items we kindly ask that you consider consolidating them into one order. If you're not ready to group items together so they exceed $10 you can also use the Wish List feature so that you can place the order at your convenience. This will assist us in our effort to reduce our impact on the environment.
Orders for digital products such as electronics vouchers and Primate subscriptions are not included in this policy. You can still place orders for digital products below $10 as normal.
Marketplace orders are also unaffected by this policy.
