Please note: NZ Post has advised that postal rates are increasing again on 1 July 2019, but have not yet made the calculation formulae for international packages available. The revised rates listed below are an estimate based on the information they *have* released. If they are too far off reality once the details of the calculation formulae *are* released, the shipping costs may need to be further revised. I apologise for any inconvenience or uncertainty this may cause, but it really is beyond my control!
Items that meet NZ Post's letter rate specifications for domestic mail can be sent at letter rates. A minimum charge of $4.20 ($4.83 including GST) applies.
Outside New Zealand
The only items that can be sent letter rate from NZ to overseas addresses must be paper or documents in form. This means that all fabric, threads or other stitching items must be sent as packages, and parcel rates apply. This also means that Customs Declarations must be completed, and items are automatically insured for up to $250. This does NOT mean that items sent by airmail can be tracked - these items will usually need to be sent by international courier, and additional (significant) charges will apply.
The rates below are based on NZ Post's international mail zones, and are for packages up to 200 grams (approximately 8 oz) in weight. For most fabric orders, this means that up to a fat half (or two fat quarters, etc) of most fabrics can be sent for the rates shown. For packages over 200g in weight, additional charges will apply based on the weight of the package.
GST is not applicable to postage on items sent to addresses outside NZ.
