Tracked Airmail Upgrade Now Available



New Zealand Post has restructured its airmail shipping methods and created Tracked Parcel. Previously, the only tracked product was Courier, which was very expensive.

We have also restructured out shipping upgrade options accordingly.

Now the upgrade option available are Tracked Parcel and Insured NoTrack Parcel. The expensive Courier is now ditched from the upgrade choice, as there has been a huge hike in its price, which made it unviable for low cost items.

The new upgrade prices are about the same as the old Small Parcel upgrade option. This is achieved by using online shipping to reduce cost, and the discount is reflected in the price we charge.


New Shipping Upgrade Costs:

  • AUSTRALIA - NZ$9.50 Tracked / NZ$4.50 Insured NoTrack
  • ASIA, EUROPE, UK + CANADA - NZ$16 Tracked / NZ$14 Insured NoTrack
  • UNITED STATES - NZ$18 Tracked / NZ$12 Insured NoTrack

(The upgrade cost is paid on top of the standard shipping cost) 


What is Tracked Parcel?

  • Full tracking included 
  • With insurance up to NZ$250
  • Not faster than standard - processing takes extra 2 - 4 days 


Countries Tracked Parcel is not available:

  • France
  • Czech Republic
  • South Korea

For those countries, only part-tracked service is available. This also comes with insurance up to NZ$250, but it's cheaper. Customers from those countries can still choose to add upgrade at the checkout, and difference will be refunded. 


What is Insured NoTrack Parcel?

  • Only partial tracking included (up to entry into destination country)  
  • With insurance up to NZ$250
  • Not faster than standard - processing takes extra 2 - 4 days
