3. Our contract with you

3.1 Orders

Our acceptance of your order will take place when we send you an order confirmation email. At this point, a contract for the sale and purchase of the ordered products will come into existence between you and us.

If we are unable to accept your order we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the products. This might be because:

  • the product is out of stock;
  • we have identified an error in the price or description of the product;
  • you have exceeded our Maximum Purchase Policy as set out below;
  • your billing name and address does not match that of the credit card used for payment;
  • we need to deal with technical problems with the product or make minor technical changes; or
  • we need to update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.

When we have accepted your order, you will see a confirmation page that provides you with your unique confirmation number and the total amount deducted from your credit or debit card, Paypal account, Afterpay account or Apple Pay. You can print this page for your reference, or alternatively wait until you receive this information in our acceptance email titled "Order # Confirmed". This is your Order Confirmation/Invoice. The email will show all details of items purchased, delivery addresses, delivery options and packaging options, which you can keep for your records.

If you have any questions about an order, please contact our Customer Service Team using the contact details in condition 1. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

3.2 Price and Payment

Prices shown on the Site are in New Zealand Dollars and are inclusive of New Zealand GST, but do not include any applicable delivery fees. Prices are subject to change effective immediately upon posting of such price changes to the Site. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the products advised to you is correct but in the unlikely event that the products are incorrectly priced, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognized by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.

You can pay for products using the following payment options:

  • American Express
  • MasterCard
  • Visa
  • Afterpay
  • PayPal
  • Apple Pay


  • Google Pay
  • Cheques
  • Postal Orders
  • Bank Transfers

We are sorry, but at this time, we do not offer gift cards. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them.


Credit card payments are subject to verification and authorization by the card issuer. If the card issuer does not authorize payment, we will be unable to conclude any contract with you. PayPal and Afterpay payments are subject to verification and authorization by PayPal and Afterpay.

For your security and to avoid any fraudulent transactions, your billing name and address must match that of the credit card used for payment. We reserve the right to cancel any order that does not match these criteria.

3.3 Maximum Purchase Policy

We regret that we must limit any orders to no more than three (3) units of any item per order.

3.4 Order Cancellations

Occasionally, orders or parts of an order are cancelled by our system for various reasons. Some reasons are:

  • item(s) not available;
  • difficulty in processing payment information;
  • cannot deliver to address provided; or
  • duplicate order was placed.

If your order is cancelled by us, you will receive an email to explain the reason for the cancellation. Your original payment method will be refunded for the appropriate amount. Once your order is placed we are unable to accept any changes to the order including delivery address.

If you wish to cancel your order prior to dispatch please call our Customer Service Team on 0800 947 905 with your order number, to discuss what practical options are available to you. Please note as we generally process orders very quickly and dispatch orders within 1-2 days therefore it may not be possible to prevent your order from being dispatched. In this instance, please return your order once received in accordance with our Delivery and Returns Policy which is set out below and in our FAQs.

4. Delivery

4.1 DHL Express Courier Delivery

We offer complimentary DHL Express Courier delivery from Australia to New Zealand street addresses for orders of $100 or more.

If you do not collect the products from the delivery depot then either we or DHL Express will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and we reserve our right to seek damages and all other costs related to the recovery.
