I was a regular split kilo buyer from them and they never increased the price for a split kilo until today when i tried to order. Looks like the total for a split kilo is now ~$186 compared to the ~$130 i've been paying, but admittedly, i was choosing the wrong shipping method (kilo is extra shipping, i thought it was anything OVER a kilo was extra shipping) and i used the ILK discount code.

I understand that they are using extra bags for split kilos etc., but that's more than i'm willing to spend. They've always had great communication and were super nice, so it's kinda sad to part ways. i found another vendor charging half that price total for kilos, and they allow you to split your kilos however you'd like without charge, except more than 4 ways and you pay only +$2 extra. im hoping their quality rivals chris and my pockets might thank me.

They're also not taking Zelle payments anymore which was the most convenient method. Looks like they're going the bitcoin route which may have its benefits, but I've never used that before.

Good evening,
I'm sorry that the increases have been too much, but we have been operating very slim for a long time. We didn't raise any prices with postal and packaging increases and we pay more per kilo than most.A split kilo is 180.00 and with ilovekratom coupon code it comes to 168.00
We source very small batches and the costs are exceeding higher. We have had alot of price changes on our end as well from all areas . We will say that we are not planning any other prices increases anytime soon. We do accept echeck and check by mail or money order. Venmo and zelle are not options due to the industry. We hope that changes soon. We also offer free shipping on all orders. Express shipping is an extra 22.00 that the post office charges.
God bless.
We always provide top quality organic kratom at reasonable prices.
God bless and have a great day.

I understand. If you pay more per kilo, that cost gets passed onto the customer unfortunately. I'm not mad at you guys at all because i understand you're a business first and foremost, but as a customer, i'm just looking to for the best deal. I did spend a lot of money with you guys when i had it, but times are tight as of now.

I've never used an e-check, but the thing about money orders or check by mail is you have to wait until the supplier receives payment before they send you the product, so it's just an inconvenience. There are many other businesses using cashapp, zelle, credit/debit etc. I was actually going to go the bitcoin route and learn how to operate it just to purchase from you guys, but i'll have to seek other sources unfortunately. No harm no foul. You guys have been the best vendor i've dealt with thus far and I hope you continue to thrive.

Thank you and sorry for any issues .
We will ship the same day that you send us a picture of the filled out money order or check with no extra waiting. We have no control over zelle and venmo ,but it is only a matter of time before it is shut down for others when they catch on.
God bless brother and continue to thrive.

I didn't know that about the money order! Good to know it can be sent earlier.

can you inform me about how and why these method of payments will be shut down? I think I might have an idea why, but seeing that you're more into the business than I am, you probably have a better idea.

Same reason credit card companies have been blocking transactions. Operation Choke Point.

Here’s a past thread on the topic, but it’s discrimination. Maybe this link will be helpful (pardon my butting in when you didn’t ask me!):

I would think that Check or Money Order will be the Only Payment Method in the Near Future for all the Vendors Probably. Personally I've always used Money Orders to pay for my Orders. I never did like Credit Cards. You can get into Debt really Quick with them as everybody knows.
