The Size of the Hypnos Store

Just an item of interest, as I mentioned trying to cut down the number of items we move over to the new online store. I checked the store database and there’s a total of 1,587 items in the product database. Many of these are inactive (no longer in stock), but actually there have been several items we have completely deleted from the database when we closed them out — so the actual number of items we have ever had for sale is probably more near 2,000. Wow!

In the old days of Hypnos mail order, I printed a catalog on paper, folded and stapled it, and mailed it to people with an order form they could fill out and mail in with a check. At first, there were so few items sold this way that I included a cover image (black and white, laser printed, but it was something) of every single CD in the catalog. A little while later, the “hot sellers” and Hypnos label items still had cover images, but the rest were just text summaries.

It’s incredible to think there have been so many different items for sale through the Hypnos store through the years! I certainly don’t want to move 1,587 items over to the new store.

Shipping Charge Increases on Hypnos Store

We haven’t changed rates in the last decade or so, but due to significant rate hikes from US Postal Service, our rates (see below) go up today, Jan 27, 2013 on the Hypnos Online Store

US shipping $4.00 per order (any quantity)
Canadian shipping $6.00 per order (any quantity)
Europe/UK shipping: 1-3 CDs $10.00 per order, 4+ CDs $18.00 per order
Japan/Australia/NZ shipping: 1-3 CDs $11.00 per order, 4+ CDs $19 per order

We regret imposing these increases on our customers, and realize that some of you, especially those overseas, will by necessity order less often. We can only state again that these higher rates represent only a small part of the rate increases passed along to us by USPS, and in many cases it will cost us double or even triple these amounts to actually send your packages, especially for larger orders.
