Become a PostCentre Agent

Become part of a premium New Zealand brand by running a NZ Post Postal Agency.

The Postal Services Agencies network makes up one of the largest retail networks throughout New Zealand. With over 800 retail outlets, comprising corporate stores, franchises and agencies, NZ Post has been a major part of New Zealand communities since 1840.

Postal Services Agency is designed to meet the everyday needs of our communities, offering a wide range of postal services for personal and business needs. This offer enables our agents to be part of a premium New Zealand brand that is trusted and relied upon by thousands of Kiwis everyday.

How can I become a NZ Post retail agent?

The most common way to join the network is to purchase a business that hosts an existing PostCentre or PostShop outlet.

New Zealand Post is continually reviewing its network of retail outlets to ensure that we provide the appropriate level of service in locations where customers seek to do business with us both now and in the future, therefore from time to time there may be opportunities to integrate a Postal Services Outlet into your existing business.

The investment required for a Postal Services Agency depends on several factors - location, store type and whether the store is new or existing. Note that the all of our Postal Services retail outlets are ‘stores in store’ format e.g. within a host business.

If you are interested in becoming part of the NZ Post brand, here are some things to consider:

  • Are you committed to running your own business and do you have strong business acumen?
  • Do you have strong communication skills?
  • Do you have excellent sales and service experience?
  • Do you have strong leadership experience?

Although not exclusive, these attributes will all go towards owning and running a successful NZ Post outlet.
