Not sure quite how to read the grid? The explainer below will walk you through the process and point out some important tactics when ordering lobster for sale online.
Using the Quality Seafood Delivery Database
We at Quality Seafood Delivery have put a lot of hours – probably too many – into building out price grids for various lobster sizes. Using data sourced directly from these lobster companies, we are able to provide one of the easiest tools available for lobster price comparison. We’ll walk you through the grid using Lobster Anywhere as an example.
|Company||Min. Order||Price/lb*||Price/4 Lobsters**||Shipping||Go To|
In the first column, you’ll see the company’s name. These names are linked. Depending on which company you choose, the link will either direct you to the company’s website or to our profile on them. Both of these will provide invaluable information about how the company sources their lobster, how long they’ve been around, and whether they have the lobster for sale online that you need.
In the next column, you’ll find the minimum number of lobster needed per order. Most companies that calculate shipping at the end of the process don’t have a minimum, which means you’ll likely see “1” in this space. If a company provides a flat shipping rate, the number will likely be 2 or more. This helps them better understand their shipping costs and guarantee that a purchase will allow them to break even on shipping and handling.
The next column includes the “price per pound” category. This allows customers to see the difference in per-pound price across companies. However, this number can be misleading. Often, companies that provide “free” shipping will have a much higher per-pound cost, as shipping prices are incorporated into the price. As a result, we’ve provided another comparison tool.
The column to the right is the “total price for 4 lobsters” column, which provides the best point of comparison. We calculated this price to include shipping and additional costs. If you’re looking for the best bargain, this is the column to use.
