    Amazon is amazingly fast with its deliveries.

    So too is aliexpress now.

    NZ Post delivery/delays is shite.

    My package took exactly 3.5 days to get to Auckland from the US with UPS, then another 7 days from Auckland to Hamilton.

    Yes. They idle in Auckland ... Something must be terribly wrong with Auckland's courier sorting center. Has been like this for quite some time.

    I get the feeling, that everything in Aotearoa/New Zealand is imported!.

    Of course most of the courier staff are not NZ people, because they don't know what FRAGILE means, we received some by-product of wheat and just as well it was double wrapped, as the carton was a shambles.

    Auckland is not Aotearoa and should get it's act together!.

    lurking.

    So no charges? duty or gst?
    I think gst is kind of luck o the draw unless it's captured at source site (like amazon do now)

    GST is in the initial payment.
    No duty if it's under $1000

    Mine arrived in Auckland 4 days from Sacramento then a day to Christchurch where it then sat for a further 4 days.

    No extra charges for me as the part only cost $23 with shipping, same part here if I could have got it was going to be $36 for one. Amazon sent me 2.

    Not quite true
    Some products still attract import duties no matter what it cost . Most dont though .
    Basically a tarrif to protect NZ manufacturers , a throw back to the 1970's .
