Shipping and returns



Prices on this website are listed in New Zealand Dollars (NZD), American Dollars (USD) or Euros (EUR).


Postal freight will be charged according to the number of books ordered.

If you are outside of New Zealand we advise that you purchase your books locally to avoid high shipping costs. We are happy to help you to find a local seller if you get in contact.

  • For New Zealand orders, shipping costs $12 per order. If your order is more than $100, shipping is free.
  • For Australian orders, shipping costs $35 for one book and $5 for every additional book in your order. For example, the shipping cost for sending 5 books to Australia would be $55.
  • For orders to the rest of the world, shipping costs $60 for one book and $12 for every additional book in your order.

Please note that we are not able to deliver to PO Boxes.
