We offer Flat Rate Shipping throughout Australia and New Zealand on all orders, no matter how many books you buy. We also offer FREE in-store pickup at any of our Book Grocer stores around Australia.

We charge in Australian or New Zealand Dollars depending on your location. For our books, our NZD prices fluctuate depending on the exchange rate. However, shipping rates to New Zealand are fixed (see below). 

For Australian customers: We endeavour to process your item(s) within 24/48 business hours. We use a combination of Australia Post (for smaller orders) and a shipping company to deliver your order.  You can expect your items within 4-5 days outside peak (Christmas) season. 

Express Post/Courier orders need to be placed before 10:30am (EST) any orders after this time will be shipped the next business day.

For New Zealand customers: We ship a batch of orders to our Auckland distributors by sea freight every fortnight or so. Orders will take approximately 3-6 weeks to arrive, including time awaiting shipment at our warehouse, shipping time then local delivery. The more orders we get, the more frequently we will ship.

If you would like to ship items to more than one address, please place separate orders for these items.

Pickup from our Newcastle and Majura stores could take up to 2 weeks to receive your order.

Pickup from our Tullamarine Warehouse your order will be ready the next business day.

Your chosen store will get in touch with you by email or SMS to let you know your book has arrived.
