We will only ship to one address i.e. no split deliveries.

All orders under NZ$60.00 for delivery within New Zealand are charged a flat delivery rate of $7.00 including GST.  We DO NOT have a surcharge for Rural Deliveries.

We do not ship to P.O. Box numbers.  If you enter a box number as your delivery address we will email you to request a physical shipping address.

We use couriers to deliver in New Zealand.  Ususal delivery times are:

Allow 5 working days for deliveries to rural delivery addresses.

Please supply a physical address for all orders.  The courier should require a signature upon delivery.  If you are not at home when the courier calls and you have not requested special delivery instructions at the time of ordering, the courier should leave a card with contact details so you can arrange a suitable delivery time.

If you request goods to be left in a specific location at your home in your absence this gives permission for the courier to leave the delivery without a signature.

International Freight

The freight for all international orders is based on the weight of your order and the destination it is being sent to.  The site calculates this as you add items to your cart.  Once you enter your address at the checkout stage and progress to the delivery information page, the freight cost will be displayed for you under the heading 'weight based shipping'.  You have not committed to the order and are still able to choose not to continue with the transaction at this point.  The transaction is not completed until you have submitted your credit card information and received an order confirmation from us.

Please note that Honey and Herbs NZ Ltd are not responsible for any import duties or tariffs your country may charge on imported goods. Please check your countries tariffs and duties prior to placing your order.
