The book depository. Free postage. I know schools here that stock their library this way.
Prodirect -amazingly cheaper sports gear. 10-25 pounds postage depending on amount-we double up with mates to share postage.

www.next.com deliver free to N.Z and the prices are now in N.Z. dollars, previously prices were in US$. Sad thing is Next UK sale starts on line today, but it does not deliver here, no idea why the sale is not on the .com web site - not fair!

Amazon UK are still offering free postage on selected items. Enjoy

Jack Wills delivers to NZ - my 18 year old boy is a happy bunny - mind you, he can probably only order a pair of socks before he goes over the tax limit!

Don't forget Customs charges. Basic formula for calculating Customs charges​ Description​ (from Customs website)

Description​ Amount​
a) Value for duty of goods (Foreign)​ $​
(b) Value for duty of goods (converted at Customs exchange rate)​ $​
(c) @ Rate of duty x% – ​ $​
(d) Shipping and insurance costs (NZ$)​ $​
(e) GST value – (b) + (c) + (d)​ $​
(f) Goods and Services Tax payable at 15% (on total (e))​ $​
Total Customs charges payable – (c) + (f)​ $​


If the Total Customs Charge is below $60, then no money will be collected (refer to Customs website).

The rate of duty is up to 10%. Books = 0%, Clothing and footwear = 10%.

Note: Exchange rates are set by Customs in 2 week intervals and can be viewed here.

There are a number of examples on the Customs website. From the examples given, it appears that delivery costs can push purchases above the $60 duty level. If buying internationally, make sure you are aware of potential customs charges.

Example of Duty charge:

Clothing cost GBP 80
NZD Value of $160
Rate of duty 10% x $160 = $16
Shipping (GBP20) NZD $40
GST Value = ($160 + $16 + $40 = $214) $214 x 15% = $32 Total Customs Charge $16 + $32 = $48

Because this is under the $60 Customs Charge, no money will be collected! I figure I can spend upto GBP 100 with a GBP20 delivery charge and not pay custom charges for clothing.


Right, any recommendations for Business Shirts??

Well in theory the com site should be cheaper because they don't have VAT/GST, but it would still pay to compare each time you buy. Of course there's no VAT on books in the UK (exl e-books). If you're considering a kindle I read over in the Australia forum that the uk site had better books (for a Brit anyway).
