Hi Everyone,

I'd like to share this with all the New Zealand Members of SaleHoo. Some of you maybe aware that some USA Suppliers will not ship to NZ.

I would like to share this useful information.

Over the last several years of using eBay, Amazon and many other USA Shopping Sites that only ships within USA, I have encountered this website that is serviced by New Zealand Post Called Youshop.

It works like this:

    Shop at USA, UK and European online stores.
    Enter your YouShop address at checkout and they will send your parcel there.
    Pay your international postage and they send your parcel to New Zealand.
    Track your parcel's delivery to your New Zealand address.

This is how international postage is calculated:

International postage is calculated as NZD$12.50 per parcel, plus NZD$4.75 per 500g. The minimum chargeable weight is 500g and is charged in 500g increments thereafter.

International postage excludes any GST, duty and customs clearance costs that may be payable on arrival in New Zealand.

Weight of your YouShop parcel

The chargeable weight of your parcel will be based on the greater of its actual weight or volumetric weight (charged in 500g increments).

For a parcel with a chargeable weight of 500g the international postage charge would be NZD$12.50 + NZD$4.75 = NZD$17.25.

If you were sending something weighing 800g the price would be NZD$12.50 + NZD$9.50 = NZD$22.00.

How to calculate volumetric weight:

Volumetric weight (kg) = [length(cm) x breadth(cm) x height(cm)]/5,000cm

A parcel with dimensions 30cm x 15cm x 10cm has the volumetric weight of 900g (30 x 15 x 10 / 5000).

Your address will look like somthing like this

Full name NZ000000 Your Name
Address line 1 14601 North Bybee Lake Court
Address line 2 Suite NZ000000
City Portland
State/Province/Region Oregon
ZIP/Postal Code 97203
Country United States
