We know you have many choices of where to shop, both locally and internationally. We hope you will choose us because we provide the best overall experience for Australians and New Zealanders. It is our goal to build a high quality Australasian online store so that more people choose us and by doing so help to build a place where they are proud to shop online.

Some key reasons to choose Fishpond are:

Local Products

Many books and CDs don't have overseas distributors and are only available locally. We work with local publishers, artists and authors to ensure that local products are available on Fishpond. For DVDs we sell region 4 movies that overseas sites don't sell so they can be played on local DVD players.

Wide Selection

Fishpond has one of the most comprehensive catalogues of books, music and movies anywhere in the world. We know that our customers want to have a full range of items from around the world and so we can source products from America, UK, Australia and New Zealand.

New Zealand Dollar Pricing

When buying from Fishpond, there is no need to juggle currency conversion, foreign credit card fees or GST customs charges. Prices are stated simply and in your local currency.

Free or Low-cost Shipping

We offer free standard shipping on orders over $0. There is no need to worry about being charged more in shipping than the cost of your items!

Faster Delivery

Our location by the Airport and a culture of shipping orders quickly means that your order from Fishpond will arrive faster than other local or overseas sites.

Choice of Payment Methods

We offer a wide range of choices to pay for your order. You don't need to have a credit card to enjoy the convenience of shopping online. We accept cheque, money order bank transfer and PayPal in addition to credit cards.

Support your Local Economy

By shopping locally you can support the New Zealand economy and help keep our country strong. We pay taxes, use local suppliers and employ local staff. Why let international companies take all of your money?
