When ordering from cookiebar.co.nz, you’re responsible for assuring the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Depending on the destination, additional taxes, import duties or fees may apply. Cookie Time International Limited (CTIL), the operator of cookiebar.co.nz, will not be held responsible for additional taxes, duties or fees, nor for any delays caused by customs. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. If we become aware of a common customs issue in a destination country we will endeavour to alert you to this, however you should contact your local customs office for more information.
For items heading to the USA, an FDA prior notice number is required. This is obtained by CTIL and noted on the package label. Please note this may delay dispatch of your item. We will contact you should the dispatch be outside of our expected timeframes.
Please note that business days are classed as Monday-Friday and exclude statutory holidays. We endeavour to dispatch orders received before midday (New Zealand time), on any business day that day. However, this may not happen for a variety of reasons and you should allow 2-3 business days for an order to be dispatched. We will communicate with you should the dispatch date be longer than three business days from your order date.
The delivery times noted below are the indicative timings advised by New Zealand Post | CourierPost. Orders are packed and dispatched in Queenstown. CTIL cannot be held responsible for deliveries not made during this timeframe. Delivery times will be impacted by statutory holidays in New Zealand and also in the destination country for international orders.
- Delivery target of 1-2 working days for the South Island, 2-3 days for the North Island
- Delivery to rural or remote rural areas may take longer.

Tracking your order
New Zealand: We will send you a dispatch email once we have processed your order which will include the track and trace number. This will give you full visibility of your order’s progress.
International: We will send a dispatch email once we have processed your order. Items sent using a tracked service can be tracked through New Zealand Post’s online tracking [ link]
tool. As New Zealand Post does not control all parts of the delivery chain, tracking updates from certain countries may not be available. In these cases, you can try tracking your item on the destination country’s tracking system.
Multiple item orders
We endeavour to dispatch all items within an order at the same time. Occasionally, due to stock levels, we may dispatch one or more item from your order while awaiting further stock to fulfil the remainder or your order. You will be advised of this split order dispatch by email. You will not pay any additional charges for this beyond the original shipping cost calculated at time of checkout. You will be provided with a track and track number for each package dispatched as a split order.
If you are a member of cookiebar.co.nz, you can view your order history at your member account/profile page.

If your order does not turn up in the expected timeframe, where possible please use the track and trace number to check on its status. If your order is advised as lost or is damaged in transit please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can assist you.
