Before using these services, you need to:
- Confirm that the items you want to send comply with the import regulations and laws of both Australia and New Zealand.
- Ensure that your parcel meets Australia Post’s requirements, including size, weight, packaging, and labeling.

New Zealand Taxation and Related Matters
In New Zealand, customs duties are determined based on the type of goods and their origin. Typically, if the value of the goods you’re importing is less than 1,000 New Zealand Dollars, you are not required to pay customs duties. However, if the value of the goods exceeds 1,000 New Zealand Dollars, customs duties are applicable.
It’s important to note that different types of goods may have varying customs duty rates, and certain items may also be subject to additional taxes, such as goods and services tax (GST) or import entry transaction fees. Furthermore, if you are importing goods from specific countries, special trade agreements or arrangements may apply, affecting the calculation of customs duties.
New Zealand Customs offers an online tool called the ‘What’s My Duty Estimator,’ which helps individuals and businesses estimate the customs duties, import taxes, value-added tax, and other fees that may be required when clearing goods through customs. This tool is based on the relevant regulations and standards of New Zealand Customs and provides users with a quick, accurate, and convenient estimation service.

YES，International EMS delivers directly to the address you provide. If they are unable to deliver, the local logistics will contact you for pickup at their branch.
International EMS charges are calculated individually for each waybill and parcel. If multiple waybills are submitted together, the first weight and additional weight charges are calculated separately for each waybill, and fees are not cumulative.
If you have any concerns about the dimensions, please contact customer service for a recheck before shipping. We will not accept reconsideration after you have received the goods.
When the warehouse receives parcels, it cannot determine which parcels need to be returned. After your parcels are received into the warehouse, please submit the return address, and the warehouse will arrange for shipping. The Chinese warehouse does not accept seller-arranged courier pickups from the warehouse. We appreciate your understanding.
When you submit multiple parcels under one waybill, the warehouse will do its best to consolidate smaller parcels into your own larger box to ensure items are not lost and to reduce volumetric weight. There is no additional charge for consolidation, but if a new box is used, there may be additional box fees. The dimensions after consolidation may differ from the initial submission, and the system will use the chargeable weight after consolidation as a reference. If there are specific parcels you do not wish to consolidate, please note this in the waybill remarks.
When submitting a waybill, you are required to truthfully declare the products you have purchased in English. If the products fall into the same category, such as clothing, you can use a general description like ‘Cloths’ and provide the actual purchase prices. Customs may randomly inspect waybills and may request proof of purchase (such as invoices and screenshots). Any customs fees incurred due to incorrect information are your responsibility.

- “Insurance is not mandatory and is charged at 5% of the declared value (in Australian Dollars). If insurance is not purchased and the item is lost, only the actual shipping fee will be refunded. Regardless of the declared value, the maximum insurance coverage for a single shipment is $300 AUD. If insurance is not purchased and the item is confirmed lost after 60 working days from shipment, it will be automatically considered lost. Insurance terms will be voided if customs clearance is delayed due to false declaration. When applying for insurance, you need to provide proof of purchase, such as an invoice or payment record, which should match the declared amount. Insurance only covers loss and does not cover any form of damage. The final interpretation of insurance terms belongs to Australia Parcel Network.”Please note that this translation is based on the information provided and may vary depending on specific context and legal requirements.
