Checkout

I am being charged rural at checkout, but my address is definitely not in a rural area, how do I fix this?
  • We have a system working in behind our website with the NZPost delivery addresses on it so we don't choose what is classed as rural. You can also check your address on New Zealand Rural Address Checker or Address Finder. If your address is still not coming up rural on either of these websites, call us on 0800 600 789 and we will be happy to help.

When I put my address in, it asks me to put my city in, but this area is greyed out, how do I fix this?
  • You will need to remove your address and start re-typing this in. When you start typing your address in again, some options should come up below. You must choose one of these options which will auto-fill your address.
When the address options come up, my address is there but in the wrong suburb!
  • Yes, this can happen but this is because we use a NZ registered address check system and certain couriers and companies assign the suburb layout differently. Although your address may be wrong, the couriers go by your street name and postcode which will fix the suburb issue.
