When will my order be dispatched?

If your order is received before 3pm between Monday to Friday, it will be dispatched on the same day.  If outside of this timeframe ie. after 3pm it will be dispatched the next business working day.  For example, an order is placed after 3pm on a Friday or during the weekend (Saturday or Sunday), your order will be dispatched on the Monday.  Likewise if your order was placed on a public holiday, it will be dispatched the next business working day.

Delivery address tips and guidelines

It is vital that you have complete and accurate physical address details – the more information, the better!  Most countries require a zip code/postcode, state or region and town.  It is often helpful if you include the recipient’s phone number.  If you are sending a hamper to a company, remember to include the company’s name.  If you have special delivery instructions (for example: for an apartment complex “press number or bell”; or whether the hamper can be left with another person ie. reception or building manager; or how to locate a unit by advising identifying features “blue house at end of long driveway”.  Include all special delivery instructions at the Checkout.

How much is my shipping and how long will it take to arrive?

Shipping is in addition to the hamper price displayed.  Kiwiana Hampers uses NZ Post.  Shipping is determined by their World Zones, as set out below.

Two options will be offered at the Checkout page for your shipping method – International Air and International Courier.

International Air is the cheaper option.  It does however have a longer delivery target (refer below).  It is not a tracked service and has no option for signature on delivery.

International Courier is more expensive which offers a shorter delivery target.  It has online tracking and allows for a signature on delivery.
