Journal Junkies Postage payments and FAQs

Packaging and Shipment Time

We endeavour to get your order shipped within 2 working days of receiving payment. Please bare this time in mind when placing your order, especially if opting to pay by bank transfer (NZ orders, only). If there is a reason for urgency, please get in touch with us to see if we can help.

Postage within New Zealand

Here at Journal Junkies, we pride ourselves in getting parcels to you as soon as possible. This is why we have opted for a courier service, which can get your purchase to you within 1-3 business days.

We’ve opted to charge a flat rate of $8 per order, or $10 for rural delivery, to keep things simple. This means an extra pen or washi tape won’t cost you any more to ship!

We wrap all notebooks in bubble wrap, to protect them on their journey. NOTE: We are currently trialing a new naturally biodegradable and compostable option to replace our plastic bubble wrap. If you have any feedback on this, please let us know!

Please make sure you include any delivery instructions on the checkout page when placing your order. Free delivery is treated just the same within New Zealand.

Rural Delivery

Rural delivery incurs an extra cost and will take a few extra days to reach you. To keep things simple, we’ve chosen $10 flat rate to help subsidise this extra cost. Please choose rural delivery box at the bottom of the checkout details page. We cannot deliver to a rural address if rural delivery has not been paid for. If you are unsure if you need to pay for rural delivery, check your address here before proceeding with payment:

Postage to Australia

We post parcels to Australia using New Zealand International Post service. You can opt to pay to extra to track your parcel, or just have it sent by standard post. Please allow up to 14 working days for your parcel to arrive at your door.

Your order will be wrapped in bubble wrap to protect it on it’s journey.

If you wish to have your goods delivered quicker by courier, we also offer a DHL service, which aims to take 3 working days, once it is picked up from us.

Orders over $150 that qualify for free shipping are sent via untracked post.

Postage to USA

As you know, New Zealand is pretty isolated from the rest of the world. We ship to the USA using New Zealand International Tracked Postal service. It can take up to 14 working days for the parcel to arrive at your door. We have chosen to not offer untracked International Post to the USA.

The postage cost is determined by weight – every notebook or washi tape adds to postage costs. All final prices are shown in New Zealand Dollars, so please bare this in mind when you see your total.

Orders over $150 that qualify for free shipping are sent via untracked post.

We are looking for a courier service, which aims to get a parcel to you within 5 working days. We’re also looking for a distribution partner so we can hold and post stock from within the United States. If you have any suggestions, please get in touch with us and let us know!

Postage to the rest of the world

We love having an international audience. If you wish to purchase from us but do not live in Australia, New Zealand or the USA, please get in touch and we can organise postage for you.

What do I do if my order has not arrived?

Journal Junkies is not held liable if you have incorrectly addressed your order. 

However, if you have made no mistakes in your order detail, there is a process we all must follow to ensure a fair solution.

You must promptly follow the process and return postage documentation, before a refund or replacement can be issued to you.

Journal Junkies Payment Options
Payment options Journal Junkies NZ

Direct Bank Transfer

For those within New Zealand, direct bank transfer is the cheapest way to pay. You can chose this option at checkout and you will be given instructions.

Please include your order number as reference. If you don’t, we won’t be able to pair your payment together with your order.

Unfortunately, we cannot package and ship your parcel until we have received payment. Depending on your bank, this can take up to three working days. We will send an email once payment has been received to keep you up-to-date.

As soon as payment has been confirmed, we will package and send out your parcel.

International Bank Transfer from outside New Zealand is not available.

By Debit or credit card

No matter where in the world you are, our system should be able to accept your credit or debit card for payment.

Whether you use a credit or debit card, online payment gateways treat the transaction the same. Paying with credit or debit card incurs a fee, charged by the payments provider – not by us. We do not see or control this payment.

If you wish to have a refund, you will still be charged the credit card fees to do so.

We are currently using Stripe to accept payment, which charges 2.9% plus $0.30, NZD. 

Payment is confirmed immediately, so you will not have to wait any extra time for your payment to be received.


Afterpay or laybuy

We believe in helping our customers live their best lives. To us, this includes not taking on unnecessary debt. While systems like Afterpay or Laybuy can be useful, they also encourage people to spend more than they can afford. We don’t agree with that.

Therefore, we do not currently accept Afterpay or Laybuy. We apologise for any inconvenience this choice might cause.
