Up-to-date expertise on customs regulations

We have expert knowledge of New Zealand customs and duties, and can handle these processes for you so you’re free to concentrate on business growth.

Let Asendia guide you through this.

Trends in New Zealand Retail

Cross-border shopping

Purchasing from overseas e-tailers is on the rise in New Zealand thanks to a multicultural, international community. Outside of the main urban areas, towns and villages in New Zealand are fairly isolated and don’t offer much shopping choice. As a result, e-commerce is booming in New Zealand, supported by increasing digital infrastructure. Availability of products is an issue in New Zealand, with two-thirds of consumers saying they have purchased cross-border because they could not find items on local sites.

Demand for better delivery

Around a third of the reasons for New Zealanders not shopping online relate to delivery concerns. The top reason is high delivery costs. Furthermore, they expect swift delivery (over half of consumers expect goods to arrive within 4-5 days) but the choice of products from cross-border businesses means they will often compromise on shipping times. Providing a great delivery service in New Zealand is a crucial factor that will give online retailers the edge over competitors..

Can’t get enough of fashion!

In New Zealand, clothing is the top-selling cross-border category by far, making up nearly 30% of sales. However, toys and gifts are popular too (almost 21.7%) as is home multimedia such as books, CDs and DVDs (18.7%). New Zealanders are mostly buying from international retailers in Australia, China, the US and Japan. Overall, products that are related to convenience and health and wellbeing are on the rise, reflecting the changing values in society.

Online trust

New Zealand shoppers, on the whole, are growing more comfortable with buying online. They trust that they’re purchasing genuine products, using secure payment methods, their purchases will arrive safely, and that their items will arrive on time and in good condition. Partnering with a trusted delivery expert like Asendia will help you meet this growing consumer confidence.
