Two words: Business Politics. At the time, it was sexy to charge a fee if the cart was below the minimum value. We have been open since Juneteenth of 2020 but have been operating shops online since 2018. When we first started, our very first shop was RJCTD Boutique, a synthetic online hair store where minimum cart values were all the rage. As we have matured both as people as well as business owners, charging folks in the local area (including the United States) doesn't make sense at this point. As trends change, maybe we will bring the minimum back, but why not sign up for push notifications and find out? With push notifications, you don't even have to leave an email to get notified about some of our back-in-stock items, new releases and fun discounts we like to offer.
