Peter's of Kensington | New Zealand Shipping

If you've got a question about our new New Zealand delivery service, chances are, we've already thought of it first. Take a look through our Frequently Asked Questions below - and if you're still curious, click here to email us.

"How long will it take for my order to arrive?"
Once you've placed your order, it will typically be dispatched from our warehouse within one to four working days.

However, keep in mind that during busy periods, such as in the lead-up to Christmas and during our January sale, dispatch times can increase by up to ten working days.

Your order will be delivered by New Zealand Post between two to three working days after it leaves our warehouse.

"Can I track the delivery progress of my order?"
Yes. Once your order has been dispatched from our warehouse, you'll receive an email containing a tracking number.

Simply enter that number at to track the progress of your delivery.

"Do I have to sign for my order, or can it be left unattended at my address?"
Yes. We require a signature for all orders upon delivery.

We're unable to request that New Zealand Post leave your parcel unattended at an address, so if no one is present at the delivery address to sign for your order, it'll be taken to the nearest New Zealand Post Office and a card will be left in your mailbox.

"Are there any products that aren't able to be sent to New Zealand?"
Yes - due to international aviation restrictions, we're not able to send perfumes and aerosols to New Zealand.

You'll receive a notification during the checkout process if any of the items you're ordering can't be sent to a New Zealand address.

"Will I have to pay any customs fees or duties?"
Orders to a total value of NZ $220 or more may attract import duties when entering New Zealand.

These charges are issued by the New Zealand government and are payable by the recipient of the order. The recipient may need to pay these charges before they can take delivery of the order. Any fees or duties are the responsibility of the recipient and cannot be reimbursed by Peter's of Kensington.

Visit to check whether your order will attract any additional charges.
