These days it’s not so straight forward sending parcels nationwide, and every 1 July it seems NZ Post increase their costs. As a not-for-profit, and with the closed store, we are unable to carry those small extra costs.
Last year we chose only to increase the international postage costs, but this year we have also had to increased our nationwide and Australian costs at the absolute minimal level, effective from today.
Please note, if you live in a rural area and have rural delivery you need to select the rural delivery option, we are no longer covering the additional cost of this additional service.
We have not increased out costs based on the number or size of the books.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
We currently have the option of PayPal, this is quick and easy and you can use your credit card and don’t have to be an existing customer of PayPal.
