    Oh and GST aside... What about duty tax?

    Depends on duty + tax rather than the cost of the goods last I heard.

    It's $60 payable as the limit, so if your GST and duties and other taxes add up to $60, your item will be stopped at the International Mail Centre until you pay.

    In practice, this means $400 including shipping for most products, yes.

    Whats the import tax on goods from overseas? Is it a $600 limit?


    Edit:

    From customs website:

    Goods mailed into New Zealand may be subject to import duty. Import duties are calculated on the Customs value of the goods in New Zealand dollars.

    The goods may also be subject to Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 15%, based on the Customs value of the goods, and including the duty (if any) and postal/courier charges.

    Goods liable for duty and GST of NZ$60 or more cannot be released until the charges are paid.

    There will also be an import entry transaction fee (IETF) and MPI biosecurity system entry levy.

    If your goods are valued at over NZ$1,000, you will need a client code.​

    from nz post website:

    When your parcel arrives at your YouShop address (at our USA warehouse), we'll tell you, so you can declare the value of the parcel for customs purposes, and pay for international postage to your nominated address in New Zealand.

    TL;DR If I understand it correctly, anything over $60 bucks can be taxed? Really makes it pointless....

    Limit is $400. But this can be increased to $500 if you declare the item as a "gift". Sounds like NZPost is willing to underwite the value of the item so you don't get hit by taxes..

    I seriously doubt that, basically they want you to declare the value because they can't.

    For large items.

    www.kiwishipping.co.nz

    Is run by Mainfreight.

    I recently brought over 3 big gearboxes for a total of $128USD. Which is damn cheap for something with a combined weight of 150kgs.

    They can do smaller stuff too.

    NZ Post will act as a address forwarder for buying things from the USA! There are probably cheaper alternatives out there but many will like the feel of security of NZ Post.

    Pretty cool.
    Pretty awesome, but beware of warranty problems.

    Exactly, so you're free to underwrite a parcel however much you want.

    Might be a few bucks cheaper getting a friend to buy things and then ship it to you. But definitely would be less hassle just buying it yourself.

    One big issue I see is that a lot of websites require a US based credit card or require you to ship to the CC's address. Otherwise looks like a good deal.

    bollocks, NZPost already do assessments for imports - they even revert to assessed values sometimes.

    lol no. Majority of stuff can't be shipped from Amazon.

    Here's the international shipping version: http://www.amazon.com/b?node=230659011

    Much less stock.

    lol that was just a theory based on:

    I said "looks like" as in that was my interpretation of what that sentence meant and not stone hard fact.
