    C. Total weight of the order

    Buy Costumes determines the shipping cost for an order based on the total weight of the order. The heavier the order, the higher the shipping cost will be. This is because shipping companies charge based on the weight of the package as it affects the cost of transportation. The total dollar amount of the order, destination, and delivery date are not factors that Buy Costumes considers when determining the shipping cost.

      International orders

    Explanation
    Domestic orders get a guaranteed delivery date. This means that the delivery date for domestic orders is ensured and customers can expect their orders to be delivered on a specific date. This guarantee may not apply to international orders or to all orders in general. However, for domestic orders, the delivery date is guaranteed regardless of the type of service chosen (such as Express or Premium).

      Cut off times

    • B.

      Shipping methods

      Size of items

      Total amount of the order

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Cut off times
    B. Shipping methods
    Explanation
    Cut off times and shipping methods are the two factors that most impact guarantee dates. Cut off times refer to the deadline by which an order must be placed in order for it to be processed and shipped on the same day. Shipping methods determine how quickly an item will be delivered, with expedited shipping options typically guaranteeing faster delivery. Therefore, both cut off times and shipping methods play a crucial role in ensuring that guarantee dates are met. The size of items and total amount of the order may have some influence on delivery times, but they are not the primary factors that impact guarantee dates.

    It is important to verify if Saturday delivery is possible for the customer's zip code before making any promises.
