3. Pricing & Taxes
3.1 Prices for Goods are as shown on the website, in New Zealand dollars inclusive of GST and all products are available to customers resident in New Zealand only.
3.2 4 Seasons reserves the right to change the prices of Goods at any time without notice to you. The price displayed at the time that you place your Order via 4seasons.co.nz will continue to apply to you even if the price changes before your Order is accepted by 4 Seasons.

Any Delivery Charge will appear in your shopping cart. Delivery charges are applied per item.

3.4 In addition to the price for the Goods and the Delivery Charge you may also need to pay any additional delivery charges which are not shown in your shopping cart but which we incur because you live in an area where normal freight charges are not applicable or where light aircraft or barge transport is required or to which our national courier company does not provide a door-to-door service (“Additional Delivery Charge”). If you believe that you might live in such an area or that delivery may be non-standard, you can email Customer Service via firstname.lastname@example.org for more information prior to purchasing. 4 Seasons reserves the right to reject any order that requires an Additional Delivery Charge to which you are not prepared to pay.
