Shipping and Returns

Covid-19 Update NZ

All couriers are under extra strain at higher alert levels, and deliveries may take longer than usual. At the moment, we estimate up to 7 working days from order to delivery. For items being sent to the Auckland or Northland regions and to rural addresses, there are longer delays of up to 14 working days due to the current lockdown and the resulting traffic for our couriers.

Shipping rates

  • Standard tracked shipping – $5 within New Zealand.

All orders are dispatched Monday to Friday and goods will be dispatched from our warehouse within 48 hours of receiving the order and should be received to the majority of New Zealand addresses within 5 working days.

Orders will not be dispatched on Public Holidays, orders placed on these days will be sent out within the next two business days.

The festive season may also cause a little delay so please be aware that between the 24th of December & 16th of January we won’t be processing online orders, so please expect orders placed in this period to be dispatched upon arrival back from these dates.


We are happy to accept returns and exchanges if what you ordered isn’t quite right. If we can’t exchange for another size or style that’s better suited, we can arrange a refund for the product price. However we cannot refund the shipping costs.

Please contact online@duckislandicecream.co.nz with details of your order and issue, to submit your return.

All exchanges and returns need to be sent back to our Head Office. We cannot accept returns or exchanges via our Duck Island Ice Cream Shops.

Returned items must be unworn (other than trying on). If we believe the clothing has been worn, we will be unable to accept the return.

Do you ship internationally?

Not at this stage unfortunately, but hopefully soon!

Where is my order?

You should have received tracking details via email, as well as regular updates. Send us a message at online@duckislandicecream.co.nz if you are having trouble with this.

When will my order arrive?

Delivery timeframes are varied within NZ, especially with extra pressure on couriers due to high traffic. Your order should generally take 2-4 working days to be delivered to you.

If after 7 working days you still haven’t received your parcel, please get in touch by emailing us at
