To follow is a guide of how our dispatch process works and the various dispatch & delivery options. Dispatch times and delivery times are dependent on how you pay, so please read carefully. We will do everything in our power to ensure your order is dispatched in the fastest possible manner.
Due to the number of parcels being dispatched daily, all orders must be paid prior to dispatch.

Payment methods effect dispatch and delivery times.
Your method of payment will determine how quickly your order is processed. This is due to the online banking rules. Please read the following:
1. CREDIT CARD - payments made by credit card are usually processed immediately. This is the fastest way to order. We can process your order as soon as we confirm your payment in our system. This is an automatic process and will ensure your order leaves us as fast as possible.
2. CREDIT CARD - EXPRESS POST - If you use CREDIT CARD and select Express Postage, your order will be dispatched in the next mail delivery providing your order is also paid.
If you order and pay before 2.00pm CST, your order will leave the same day as long as it is a business day. Orders placed on the weekend cannot be mailed until the Monday.
If your order & or payment arrives after 2.00pm, your order will be dispatched on the next business working day.

ALL ORDERS: Please add New Zealand or Australia Post normal delivery times/days to the above estimates.
Please note the difference between "Delivery time" and "Dispatched time".
1. Dispatch time - means the time or date the order is dispatched , it does not mean the day you will receive your order.
2. Delivery time - means the time it takes an order to arrive at its destination. It does not mean the time or day you expect the Post to be delivered.
Dispatched in good faith:
We will always endeavor to dispatch items within the above stated times, however is not a guarantee of delivery within the time stated. Delivery is out of our hands once the order is dispatched. The order is then in the hands of the postal service. We are then all reliant upon the postal service to deliver on time!
If an item is listed on our website and the item becomes unavailable from our supplier, we will not automatically supply something similar. We will endeavor to contact you via email OR telephone and offer you a refund or a product of similar value – whatever you prefer - it’s your choice!
