Reduce Shipping Costs

One of the downsides of coming from such a beautiful, isolated, little country way down at the bottom of the earth is shipping costs.

Although not too bad to Australia, most countries are a fair distance from New Zealand so keep the following things in mind when making an order.

Some tips to help minimize shipping cost

Watch the weight

Net weights are displayed for all products so be mindful when ordering larger, heavier items.

What’s the product packaging?

Shipping weight also includes the product container and packaging. Cans and cardboard packs are heavier than those of products packed in plastic and that extra weight is a component of costs. Expensive to ship – large items, liquids and products packed in glass containers.

Plan ahead

Airmail shipping takes a little longer than courier services but will save you money.

Economies of scale

Costs reduce with quantity. For example; a 10 Kg parcel from NZ to USA is approximately 40% cheaper per Kg than a 1 Kg parcel. Save by buying more less often.


We do all we can to ensure that shipping is at the best price and put no mark-up on shipping.
