Standard Delivery Information
Your purchase can be sent directly to you or your gift recipient, whether they live in New Zealand or overseas. Please see below for our delivery methods, times and fees.
New Zealand Orders
We offer Not Socks subscribers FREE standard delivery for all New Zealand orders over $75 delivered to a single address. For nonsubscribers and orders under $75 the delivery cost is $5.95.
Your order will be delivered quickly to you as all "in stock" items on our website are held in our warehouse, ready for immediate dispatch. Our delivery target for purchases made before 1pm weekdays is 2 to 3 working days.
Parcels are delivered Monday to Friday. Please see "Urgent Orders" below if you require a Saturday delivery.
New Zealand orders are tracked and delivered by Courier Post. We use their non-signature required service so your order will be left at your door or in your letterbox if you are not home to receive it. If there isn’t a safe place the courier will leave a calling card with details of how to collect your order.
Should you have a gift emergency, we also provide an Urgent Delivery Service for urgent orders and Saturday deliveries. These nationwide orders are given priority and dispatched first.
Our Urgent Delivery Service is overnight for non-rural orders placed before 1pm weekdays and costs $11.95 (maximum weight 5kgs).
We deliver to rural addresses at no extra charge. Please note that these orders may take 1 to 3 days longer to arrive.
PO Box Deliveries
Yes, you can also choose to have small parcels delivered to a PO Box address.

We will notify you if your order is over 2kg and will cost extra to send overseas. If so, you will have the right to cancel or change your order as you choose.
Target delivery times for overseas orders are 3 to 10 working days.
Note we do not ship to freight forwarding companies.
Additional Charges on Overseas Orders
Our prices do not include import fees, duties, tariffs, taxes or other import charges which may be payable in other countries. So please be aware that your order may incur these additional charges which the recipient will be responsible for paying.
Pre-Ordering Items at Not Socks
The advantage of pre-ordering at Not Socks is your ability to reserve products before they arrive at our warehouse.
Our pre-orders work just the same as regular orders, except you will receive your order as soon as the product arrives at our warehouse or is officially available for sale.
We only ever put an item on pre-order when delivery is guaranteed. That's why the vast majority of our pre-orders have a delivery date of 1 to 2 weeks, rather than several weeks or months.
If you're paying by credit card your card will be charged when you place your order. Alternatively, if you're paying by internet banking please ensure you’ve made payment at least a couple of days before the item is due.
Note pre-orders are also covered by our 90 day returns policy. So you have three months from the day of delivery to return the item in its original condition and packaging for an exchange or refund - no questions asked.
