New Zealand delivery rates & times

Delivery Fees

Delivery – $3.90 per shipment

For most orders delivery is just $3.90 per shipment. In rare cases an oversized delivery fee may also apply. To ensure every customer pays a fair price for delivery, an exact shipping price will be displayed to you in the Checkout based upon the size of the products in your order and your delivery address.

Multiple Shipments

If your order contains a mix of in stock and out of stock products, you will be presented with a choice in the Checkout to have your order sent in multiple shipments (so in stock items ship as soon as they're ready), or all items together in a single shipment (to save money). Using a single shipment will mean in stock items are held back until out of stock items are ready.

Optional Upgrades

The following delivery options are presented in the Checkout as optional upgrades for your order.

Same Day Delivery / Evening Express Delivery – $5.00-$8.00 per shipment

If you live in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch and in a qualifying inner-city suburb, Mighty Ape can deliver in-stock products between 6pm – 9pm on the same day your order is dispatched.

Signature Required – $3.00 per shipment

If you don’t want Courier Post to leave your parcel unattended please select the signature required option. This is especially recommended for high value items. Neither Courier Post nor Mighty Ape are liable for parcels that are stolen, damaged or lost after an item has been delivered.

Rural Delivery – $3.50 per shipment

If you live at a rural address you must select the Rural Delivery option in the Checkout for your item to be delivered. Unfortunately we must charge this additional fee because rural delivery operators are subcontracted by Courier Post to deliver your parcel from the nearest Post Office. Courier Post on-charge this fee to Mighty Ape.

Saturday Delivery – $4.50 per shipment

If you order an “In Stock at Mighty Ape” item on Friday before the cutoff time you will have the option to select Saturday Delivery. Saturday Delivery is not available in all areas.

Delivery to PO Boxes

Yes, we can deliver most items to PO Boxes within New Zealand. Items excluded are dropship stock, and dangerous goods (e.g. fragrance, aerosols). You will be advised in the checkout if your items can't be delivered to a PO Box.

Delivery Times

We use Courier Post for New Zealand orders, which allows fast and reliable delivery to destinations across their comprehensive domestic network.

Delivery times vary depending on a product's stock status and the intended delivery address. Mighty Ape displays an estimated delivery time on every individual product page and in the Checkout.

Overnight Delivery

Most In stock at Mighty Ape products are delivered overnight anywhere in New Zealand – provided the order is placed before the advertised cut-off time (usually 4pm Monday to Friday). Larger products take an additional 1–2 days to be delivered to the South Island. Rural Delivery and Dangerous Goods (e.g. fragrance, aerosols) may take an additional day for delivery.

Same Day Delivery / Evening Express Delivery

Same Day Delivery is available to some Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch suburbs. All items in your order must be In Stock at Mighty Ape for this option to be displayed. Same Day Delivery orders are delivered between 6pm and 9pm in the evening on the same day your order is dispatched.

If you are ordering on a business day and before the cutoff time, the option will be called “Same Day Delivery”. If you are ordering after the cutoff time or on a weekend or public holiday, the option will be called “Evening Express Delivery”.

Out of Stock products

Products labelled In Stock with Supplier or Out of Stock can take longer to ship, as we need to order stock in from our supplier first. Delivery times can be a few days or a few weeks. A delivery estimate based on information provided by our supplier is displayed on the product page and in the Checkout.

Pre-order products

Pre-orders for most new release Games and DVD/Blu-ray are shipped from Mighty Ape before the official release date – to ensure delivery on the release date. A “Day One Delivery” message is displayed on the product page where this service is offered.
