+United Kingdom

Shipping is by Tracked Airmail.

  • It takes around 1 - 2 weeks. Our shopping cart calculates the postage based on weight – typically NZ$20-30.


  • When your package arrives in the UK, you may be asked to pay VAT, any duty, and an £8 admin fee.
  • In that case, Royal Mail will send you a grey 'Fee to Pay' card, or you'll receive an email/SMS notification.
  • The fee can be paid online or in person at your local Customer Service Point. If paying online, you should be able to choose a delivery day that’s most convenient for you.
  • To help offset this we subsidise the shipping cost when you order from us.
