PLN’s Path to Free Shipping

Free shipping has been a financial impossibility… until now.  

Reduced Cost & Free Shipping for High-Volume Accounts

Most labs in this industry have such high profit margins baked into their pricing that gimmicks like low-cost or "free" shipping are thrown around casually.

From the beginning, the lab pricing that Pivotal Group brought to optometrists was stripped to the bone — making rebates, per-account discounts, and shipping perks financially impossible. When comparing bottom-line pricing of other labs with these "perks" to Pivotal Group's lab partner without perks, our members have come out way ahead.

PLN is powered by the same high-volume, low-margin business model, but... high volume accounts enable economies of scale, allowing us to rollout a "Path to Free Shipping" program for higher-volume accounts at PLN.

Members can enroll in PLN's "Path to Free Shipping" program by committing to a certain level of monthly volume. The shipping discount will be applied to the PLN account up-front, assuming in good faith that the client will achieve or surpass their selected monthly volume commitment.

The tiers for this program are as follows:

  • Monthly Volume: $0 to $3,000 — $13.50 per shipment(full price)
  • Monthly Volume: $3,001 to $4,000 — $11.50 per shipment(15% off)
  • Monthly Volume: $4,001 to $6,000 — $9.50 per shipment (30% off)
  • Monthly Volume: $6,000 to $8,000 — $7.50 per shipment (45% off)
  • Monthly Volume: $8,000 or more — Free shipping; one shipment per day (100% off)

Complete details for this program can be found in PLN's Policies »

PLN's "Path to Free Shipping" is the best option for higher-volume accounts to save on shipping costs, but it's not the only way. Even young or growing PLN accounts can reduce shipping costs through our consolidated shipping program.

PLN Is Currently Invitation-Only.
