Earth Sea Sky Payment & Shipping Details

Payment Methods

We only accept Visa and Mastercard. Alternatively you can pay directly into our bank account, this does make order processing a couple of days slower. For customers outside New Zealand, please note that any fees for international bank transfers are your responsibility.

Payment Issues

These days with a heightened awareness of credit card fraud etc, making payment via the web, despite our best efforts to make it easy and painless, can still become complicated. Often we find that a customer's credit card is declined by the issuer, rather than ourselves, for reasons such as the card not being approved for use out of the cardholders country, or a series of overseas purchases looking like a stolen card.

If you do have problems making payment through our payment gateway, it is likely that the first thing you should do is check with your bank to make sure there are no issues around your card.

We are also very happy for you to contact us and we can email or call you to help.


In certain countries (Australia, England, Europe, Hong Kong, America, Canada, Japan, South Africa, Switzerland), our site will display prices in the local currency. This is for your convenience only. Purchases made through our site actually occur in New Zealand, in New Zealand dollars, and the actual purchase amount may vary depending on the exchange rate you get from your credit card company or bank.

Customs and taxes

Some countries have import duties and taxes which are not covered by our freighting service.

GST is collected on sales to New Zealand customers and our listed web prices include the GST if applicable.

Documents - Shipping and Billing addresses

Our shopping cart has options for you to set up different addresses for billing and shipping. Please note we send all required documentation with the parcel. This facilitates freighting and customs clearance processes.
