Reduce Shipping Costs
A downside to being so far away in kiwi land is the shipping distances and costs.
Shipping to Australia is cost effective. However other countries being far away from New Zealand have a higher shipping cost so please bear this in mind.
For items that are heavy we have added in a warning sign (below) as this can affect the shipment cost greatly. Especially items like the Soda drinks weighing from 370g for one can to 2.1kgs for a 6 pack.
4 Tips To Reduce The Shipping Cost
On all our product pages we have added in a basic shipping guide outlining the costs to ship around the world.
🏋️♂️ 1. Watch the weight
We have displayed net weights for all products to be mindful when ordering drinks, liquids and heavier items.
🎁 2. How is the product packaged?
Total shipping weight includes the product packaging. The weights displayed on product pages is (net) weight and does not include the packaging. Cans and cardboard packaging are lighter than plastic, liquids and glass packaging. We try to eliminate all glass packaging in the store at this stage due to fragility and weight.
📅 3. Plan ahead
Airfreight shipping is about 3-4 weeks longer than courier services but saves you money.
⚖️ 4. Economies of scale
Shipping costs per kilo reduce a lot with quantity. For example; a 10 kg (22 lb) parcel from NZ to the USA is around 44% cheaper per kg than a 1 kg (2.2 lb) parcel. Save more by buying in bulk less often.
