Delivery/Shipping to Europe under current Covid-19 conditions

*Due to Covid-19, and its impact upon international freight services, we can only deliver to a selection of countries within *Europe at this time.  As of 25 February 2021, Denmark, Ireland and Sweden are included. Orders with European destinations are routed through the United Kingdom. Any Covid-19 impacts affecting transportation from UK to Europe will, in turn, affect delivery times for orders. Thank you for your patience, your understanding and your support!

  • We currently cannot deliver to Bulgaria, Iceland, Poland, Serbia and Slovakia. This is because the postal administrations in these countries are currently not accepting mail for New Zealand to the best of our knowledge. This means customers or order recipients in these countries will not be able to return any products/orders to us for exchange or refund at this time.
  • Until further notice, we have suspended our “Airmail: No Tracking” and “Airmail: Limited Tracking” services to Europe.
  • However, we have introduced an “Intl. Express Courier” (International Express Courier) service. For some countries, it is the only service available. New Zealand Post subcontracts DHL to provide this service. It is the fastest service and shipping costs reflect this.
  • Thank you for your patience, your understanding and your support!
