As of February 2020, first-time customers will need to place an order of at least $500 to be able to complete checkout.
If you've ordered from us before, even with a $1 order in the past, good news, this requirement doesn't apply to you. Please contact us if you are logged in and you see the order size requirement on checkout, and we will be happy to fix your account as an existing customer.
Yep, this is unusual. We are adopting this policy to better serve you as our customer and to better handle logistics.
