Shipping Service Changes

Hi all,

We hope everyone is well despite the current situation we find ourselves in.

As many of you would have heard already, NZpost has announced another round of price increases effective 1st of October 2021. This is the third lot of increases the services we use have seen since the first level 4 lockdown in 2020, we’ve been absorbing the cost of the previous increases however we’ve determined with this upcoming increase, we cannot continue to do so and as such we will be adjusting pricing for some of our shipping methods as well as some service standards. These changes will come into affect on the 1st of October 2021.

NZ Wide Uninsured Envelope: $1.49 (Price Unchanged)

  • No minimum order values.
  • Maximum order subtotal of $10.00.
  • Ideal for low value single card orders.

NZ Wide Small Tracked Satchel: $1.99 -> $2.99

  • Minimum order subtotal of $5.00.
  • Order subtotals over $10.00 will qualify for signature delivery. Subtotals under $10.00 will not.

NZ Wide Medium Tracked Satchel: $3.99 (Price Unchanged)

  • Minimum order subtotal of $5.00.
  • Order subtotals over $10.00 will qualify for signature delivery. Subtotals under $10.00 will not.

NZ Wide Tracked Parcel: $4.99 (Price unchanged)

  • Minimum order subtotal of $10.00.

Free shipping NZ wide on all orders over $150

  • Currently unchanged however we are considering increasing our free shipping threshold to $175.00 at a later date.

Australia wide options

  • A general increase of approximately 8% will apply to all shipping options into Australia.

Please note: These changes will be implemented on a trial basis and will be reviewed (and possibly changed) at a later date. Any amendments will be added below.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Easter 2021 Update

Happy Easter everyone!

Another one has come around quickly and we’re already a third of the way though 2021. It has certainly been good to see things picking up again especially since this time last year and despite all the stock shortages and delays!

Just a quick update regarding our Easter holiday hours/dispatch.

We’ll be off on Good Friday (April 2nd) but all orders placed will be dispatched on Saturday the 3rd. Sunday will be a day off as normal and we will be back at work on Monday however there will be no dispatch as couriers will be off until Tuesday. Please be aware that there could be the odd delay with shipping surrounding this weekend.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Easter, take care out there!

An update regarding the Pokemon Battle Styles release

Hi everyone,
 
An update regarding the Pokemon Battle Styles release.
 
-We’ve just been notified that most Battle Styles lines have been moved to allocation only for the initial wave and stock for NZ/Aus stores will be significantly short supplied. We don’t have our allocation numbers yet and while we did request a lot more than we offered pre-orders for, in the event we’re short, we will do our best to ration stock out and to notify those affected as soon as possible. The balance of any incomplete orders will be fulfilled on the following wave which should follow soon after.
 
-At this stage stock is still set to arrive late March and we will be sure to notify everyone if this changes.
-A further note: Shining Fates lines have begun to leave distributors and we will fulfill pre-orders as soon as they arrive.
As always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
 
Thank you for your patience.

Merry Christmas from the Otakumart Team!

We’re hoping everyone has been able to enjoy a well deserved day of relaxing and celebrating, especially after such a turbulent year!
Orders will be processed over the weekend but dispatch will resume Tuesday morning when couriers are back at work. Support will still be available throughout the holidays so feel free to get in touch if we can help with anything in the meantime. The same will apply to New Year’s weekend.
Stay safe out there!

Considerable Delays for Anime Goods

Hello Everyone!

Just a bit of a general update:

Our shipments of Anime/Gundam related goods out of Japan are experiencing even heavier delays than before due to shortages of loading space caused by further reduction of flights and sea freight. We’re currently experiencing wait times of up to a whole month before our shipments even clear port. We’re currently in the process of securing other means of transport however and are hoping things will pick up well before Christmas.

There have also been minor delays with many of our Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon releases with some other trading card products such as accessories. We’ll have more sleeves and toploaders in stock soon!

Our team will be in touch directly regarding any major delays for pre-ordered items as more information comes in.

If you have any questions please contact us!

For anyone waiting on specific product; we haven’t forgotten about you! Thank you for your understanding and patience in these times.
