Purchase a franchise

Become part of a premium New Zealand brand by purchasing a PostShop Kiwibank franchise.

PostShop Kiwibank stores make up  one of the largest retail networks throughout New Zealand. With over 250 retail outlets, comprising corporate stores and franchises, we have been a major part of New Zealand communities since 1840.

Our premium brand, PostShop Kiwibank, is designed to meet the everyday needs of our communities, offering a wide range of postal and financial services for personal and business needs. Our PostShop Kiwibank products and services range from sending services, to prepay and bill pay, banking services and much more.

This offer enables our franchisees to be a part of a premium New Zealand brand that is trusted and relied upon by thousands of Kiwis everyday. You will also have access to great business support through our marketing, training and business tools helping you achieve your own business success.

Kiwibank was established in 2002 and is 100% Kiwi owned. New Zealand Post is the majority owner while the NZ Super Fund has a 25% stake and the Accident Compensation Corporation a 22% stake in the bank.

How can I become a PostShop Kiwibank franchisee?

The most common way to join the PostShop Kiwibank network is to purchase an existing PostShop Kiwibank Franchise, which in most circumstances will include a host business.

New Zealand Post is continually reviewing its network of PostShop stores and PostCentre 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 PostShop Kiwibank into your existing business.

The investment required for a PostShop Kiwibank franchise depends on several factors - location, store type and whether the store is new or existing. Note that the majority of our Franchise stores are ‘stores in store’ format e.g. within a host business.

If you are interested in a PostShop Kiwibank Franchise, 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 PostShop Kiwibank franchise.
