GST

From December 1 2019, all items purchased from overseas and shipped to your YouShop address will have 15% Goods & Services Tax (GST) applied. GST will be charged on the total value of the goods and YouShop services purchased.

If the value of your consignment* is over $1,000 then Customs may also collect duty (and GST on the amount of that duty) at the border.

Weight of your YouShop parcel

The chargeable weight of your parcel will be based on the greater of its actual weight or volumetric weight (charged in 500g increments).

Example of a standard parcel

For a parcel with an actual weight of 500g and a volumetric weight of 250g, the chargeable weight is 500g the YouShop international postage charge would be NZD$12.50 + NZD$4.75 = NZD$17.25.

If you were to ship this parcel via YouShop Economy it would cost you NZD$9.00 + NZD$3.50 = NZD$12.50 This would give you a saving of $4.75

If you were sending something with an actual weight of 300g and a volumetric weight of 800g the chargeable weight is 800g and the YouShop international postage would be NZD$12.50 + NZD$9.50 = NZD$22.00.  (Due to the weight charges being in 500g increments).

If you were to ship this parcel via YouShop Economy it would cost you NZD$9.00 + NZD$7.00 = NZD$16.00 This would give you a saving of $6.00

How to calculate volumetric weight

Volumetric weight (kg) = [length(cm) x breadth(cm) x height(cm)] / 5,000cm

Example
A parcel with dimensions 30cm x 15cm x 10cm has the volumetric weight of 900g (30 x 15 x 10 / 5000).
