(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 25, 2008 ) The Chain Gang (http://www.thechaingang.com), a leading online body jewelry store, has slashed its shipping rates to cater to its growing customer base even better. The new rates have been introduced to make things easier for US customers, but especially overseas customers who earlier had to pay heavy shipping prices. In business for well over a decade, The Chain Gang has been recognized as one of Internet's best sources for jewelry shopping.

The Chain Gang's low shipping rates aim at helping customers from all over the world buy body jewelry without worrying about the shipping and postage and handling charges. It has been often observed that many buyers shy away from shopping online due to the delivery charges, especially if the orders are from countries where the shipping charges tend to exceed the actual price of the purchase.

Speaking about the low shipping rates, Scott Johnson, President of The Chain Gang Body Jewelry Store, says, “With The Chain Gang's growing popularity, we have more and more people from all around the world coming to our online store. Earlier, most would just turn away because the shipping and handling charges would just turn out to be too high. Keeping this in mind, we have introduced lower shipping rates, which when combined with our low jewelry rates, are the best deal!”.

The Chain Gang's shipping and handling, on orders less than $150, starts at $3.99, and is only $6.95 for Priority Mail to anywhere in the United States. Rates to Canada start at only $4.99. Shipping and handling charge for overseas orders are calculated based on postal information, weight, and value, after the order is placed, but most all start at $7.99 per order.

“I have always loved The Chain Gang's designs, but every time I decided to order, the shipping charges would always hurt. Things are completely different now thanks to the store's slashed shipping rates! All the bling I am covered in is The Chain Gang's. I have ordered jewelry for all my 10 piercings without burning a hole in my pocket!”, shares 22-year-old Jennifer who vows to return to The Chain Gang every time she wants to jewelry shop. “The prices are low, service is awesome and everything is available. A jewelry lover like me can't ask for anything else!”, she adds.
