New Zealand delivery rates & options
To ensure you always pay a fair price for delivery you will be presented with exact shipping rates in the checkout, based upon the items you order and your delivery address.
Delivery to most New Zealand addresses is just $3.90 per shipment. On extremely rare occasions an oversized delivery fee may also apply.
When placing your order you will be presented with two delivery options in the checkout:
Ship each of my items ASAP
With this option your order may be delivered in multiple shipments. In stock items will ship immediately, and out of stock and pre-order items will be delivered as soon as they arrive in stock.
The vast majority of shipments are just $3.90 anywhere in New Zealand, however oversized shipments (e.g. shipments containing computers, monitors, game consoles and large toys) may incur an additional cost.
Group my items to minimise delivery costs
With this option, items from your order are delivered in a single shipment. Your order will ship when every item in your order has arrived in stock.
In the vast majority of cases Combined Delivery is just $3.90 anywhere in New Zealand, however oversized shipments (e.g. shipments containing computer monitors, game consoles and large toys) may incur modest additional charges.
You will be advised of an exact shipping rate before you submit your order, based upon the items you order and your delivery address.
Orders that contain pre-order products
If your order contains a pre-order product (i.e. the product's release date is in the future) the product will automatically be placed into its own shipment at the normal rate of $3.90.
The following delivery options are presented in the Checkout as optional upgrades for your order.
Same Day 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 – 8pm on the same day you place your order. Learn more
Signature Required – $3.00 per shipment
If you don’t want Courier Post to leave your parcel unattended please selected 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 in 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 smaller courier operators are sub contracted 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 with Mighty Ape” item on Friday before 3PM you will have the option to select Saturday Delivery. Saturday Delivery is not available in all areas.

All “in stock with Mighty Ape” items are dispatched on the same day you place your order, provided you order before our daily cut-off time which is usually 4PM.
