Amazon shipping to New Zealand

Shopping on from New Zealand

Amazon (.com, the flagship U.S. store) is a popular destination for New Zealand's online shoppers. The American behemoth has the best product selection in the world, stocking and selling virtually every imaginable product from every brand and store you have —and haven't— heard of.

So don't feel left out - every other country bar the U.S. is having trouble ordering US Amazon products and shipping internationally.

Why won't ship to New Zealand?

The main reason is Customs. As you may have already experienced, getting products shipped through Customs in New Zealand can take time, and money. If a friend or relative has sent you a package from abroad, it was likely held up, inspected, and subjected to import duty, which you then had to pay to have the package released and delivered to you. It's such a poor customer experience that many US stores and brands prefer to avoid it altogether.

Beyond the product itself, there's the added complexity of offering an international warranty, dealing with returns, and localisation of marketing, packaging materials, and after-sale support.
