Shipping & Returns


Auckland University Press books are available from all good bookshops in New Zealand and available to order from bookshops (online and bricks and mortar) overseas through our distributors. We encourage you to buy from your great local bookstore!

For orders made through our website, our shipping charges are (NZD):

  • $8.50 flat rate for orders shipped throughout New Zealand.
  • $40 for orders up to $80 in value shipped overseas.
  • $70 for overseas orders from $80–$150 in value shipped overseas.
  • $100 for overseas orders over $150 in value shipped overseas.

New Zealand orders should arrive within 5 days via tracked courier.

Overseas orders are sent by air. Please note these are not tracked. Orders should arrive in 2-5 weeks but with current freight issues they can take three months. We strongly encourage you to order instead from your local bookshop.
