Postage and packaging
All online orders are despatched using the NZ Courier’s tracked service. This allows us to send parcels anywhere in New Zealand for one fixed price, so you can order as many products as you like without paying additional postage.
Rural deliveries incur extra charges, and we do not deliver to PO Boxes.
All products are sent with tracking, so you’ll always know where your order is. When we despatch your order, we’ll send you an email containing your tracking number. Just go to the NZ Courier’s website and type in your tracking number to find out where your parcel is.
In most cases, orders received before 12:00 noon will be despatched on the same day. If you’re in Wellington and you place your order before 12:00 noon, you will normally expect to receive your order the next working day. For anywhere else in the North Island you can expect delivery within 1 to 3 working days and Nationwide delivery takes around 2 to 3 days. Orders received after 12:00 noon are despatched on the next working day.

Buying a Snapper at school
More and more schools are choosing to have Snapper built in to their student ID card. A Snapper school ID card can be used just like any other Snapper and will already have a travel concession applied as part of the School ID process. This means that anyone who is entitled to carry a Snapper-enabled school ID automatically gets the child travel concession fare, plus the 20% discount (compared to cash) when used on buses and ferries.
Check below to see if you’re at a school with Snapper ID. If you are, then contact your school directly for more information about getting a Snapper school ID.
Current Wellington schools with Snapper built in to the school ID are:
- Hutt Valley High School
- Onslow College
