Buying goods on the Internet is an increasingly popular way of shopping.
However, before shopping online, you need to be aware that you may have to pay Customs charges and/or GST on top of the advertised purchase price when the goods arrive in New Zealand. You can use our online estimator What's My Duty to estimate how much duty you may need to pay on many commonly imported items.
You should also be aware of what goods cannot be brought into the country or which goods need approval before bringing in.
Before ordering, make sure of the import regulations as they apply to you, and what charges may be due on the goods you wish to bring in.
