Orders and Delivery

Please find below information about how to track the status of your online orders, delivery charges and timeframes, as well as guidance for international shipping.

Standard Delivery

We offer free delivery within New Zealand on all online orders over $100. For all orders under $100, we charge a flat rate of $5.

Standard NZ delivery to major cities is typically two business days from when your order status is complete. For rural areas please allow an extra two business days.

Most orders are dispatched next working day. Orders placed after 12pm on a Friday or on the weekend will not be dispatched until the following Monday, or first available business day.

Orders made within two days of a public holiday or during busy sale periods may take up to an additional five days to be delivered.

We deliver via a tracked courier service - once your order is dispatched you will receive an email with a link to track the status of your order with our delivery partner.

We use Courier Post and PBT Couriers and can deliver to your home address, work or PO Box anywhere in New Zealand. We do not ship to freight forwarders or the armed forces.

By ordering via https://www.kathmandu.co.nz you grant Kathmandu and our couriers the Authority To Leave (ATL) orders at the address provided, whether attended or not. You also release Kathmandu from all liability if an incorrect address is supplied or a parcel is stolen from your property after delivery.

Orders status and tracking

You can check on your online order status through the ‘My Orders’ section, if you placed the order while logged in to your account. Here, your order will be displayed as:

  • Pending (your order is being reviewed)
  • Processing (your order is with the warehouse)
  • Complete (your order has been shipped)
  • Closed (your order has been refunded).

When your order has been completed, we will send you a dispatch email. This email includes the freight provider’s name and your order tracking number. Please note, it may take 24 hours before your tracking details are available from the courier’s website and you can use the number to track your delivery.

We sometimes split larger orders into separate shipments due to their weight or dimensions. If this happens, you will still only receive one email and tracking number, this includes multiple consignments. 

Most orders are dispatched next working day. We deliver via a tracked courier service - once your order is dispatched you will receive an email with a link to track the status of your order with our delivery partner.

To view the status of a domestic order visit Courier Post or  PBT Couriers and enter the tracking number.

To view the status of your international order, visit DHL and enter the tracking number.

Please keep in mind that orders can be held up due to busy sales periods, Public holidays or customs delays.

Change or cancel your order

If your order is confirmed and its status displays as ‘Processing’ or ‘Complete’, we are unable to make changes to it.

Once you receive your order, you may return any items through our Returns & Exchanges process.

Missing or incomplete orders

If your order arrives incomplete, or is taking longer than our standard delivery time frame please Contact us and we can look into this for you.

Pick up in-store

You can choose to have your order shipped from our distribution centre to a store of your choice. There is no delivery fee for this service, and the expected delivery time frame is 3-7 business days.

Please note: your order will not be able to be fulfilled from in store stock, but rather will be sent from our distribution centre to your desired store.

At checkout, select ‘Use Pick up In store’ and select the store where you'd like to collect your online order.

You will receive an email confirming the order has been dispatched and another to let you know when it has arrived in store and is ready for pick-up.

Please bring photographic ID and proof of purchase (e.g. order confirmation email). If you’ve already placed your order and would like someone else to pick it up, please Contact us.

Your order will be held in store for a maximum of 14 days. If it is not collected within this time, your order may be cancelled and a refund will be issued.
