Shipping & Delivery

.

Can I change or cancel my order after I’ve placed it?+

Our team moves pretty quickly to get orders shipped ASAP, which means it can be tricky to make changes to an order once it’s been placed.

But we’re here to help so shoot an email through to help@cocktailcollective.com and we’ll see what we can do.

Failing that, don’t forget that under our 30-day hassle-free Returns Policy you can always send your order back for free within 30 days of purchase or you can initiate an exchange under our Exchange Policy.

Oh no - I got a detail wrong in my order. How can I quickly change it?+

Quickly shoot us an email at help@cocktailcollective.com and let us know what you need us to change and we’ll do our best to help before your order is shipped.

How can I track my order?+

Once your order has been shipped, you’ll get a shipping notification via email and you can keep track of your order via the Tracking Number in that email.

If there’s a problem tracking your order, email us at help@cocktailcollective.com and we’ll help.

I forgot to add my Promo Code to my order. What should I do?+

No problem.  Email us at help@cocktailcollective.com with your name, order number and Promo Code and we’ll help sort that. 

I’m sending a gift so I don’t want a receipt or the pricing put with my order. Can you help?+

We don’t send receipts, invoices or any price details out with our orders unless you request it. Mum’s the word.

I’ll be storing my cocktail box until I need it - can you confirm there are no perishables in the box?+

Yes - we can certainly confirm there are no perishables in your box.  So you can store your box for just the right occasion, and gift, with complete confidence.

Are your cocktail boxes vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free?+

We can’t claim or guarantee that any of our cocktail products are vegetarian/vegan or gluten-free.

Do you have alcohol-free ‘mocktail’ boxes?+

All of our cocktail boxes include alcohol, but mocktails are easy to mix up when you have a few Cocktail Staples on hand. 

A sweet syrup, a citrus cocktail juice cocktail garnish are your foundation ingredients and will give you different drink options.  Then simply decide on a mixer (eg tonic, ginger beer or other flavoured mixer) and voila - mocktails made easy and dressed to impress, right down to your garnish.  

You can check out some Cocktail Staples here.

What are my payment options?+

We accept the following payment options:

- Credit card including Visa, Mastercard and Amex
- PayPal
- Google Pay

Unfortunately we can’t yet offer Oxipay or Afterpay as these businesses currently have restrictive policies applied to alcohol. When this changes, we’ll be keen to look into these options.

Will I get an itemised receipt?+

A receipt will be attached to your shipping confirmation email.  If you need more detail or to make a correction, we can help. Send us an email at help@cocktailcollective.com.

Can I buy an e-Gift Card for someone? How does it work?+

The e-Gift Cards make great presents and come in the following values - $10, $25, $50, $100, $150. 

They’re really flexible to use and don’t expire until the full amount of the card has been used so they can be used all at once or over time and multiple orders. 

Simply add The e-Gift Card you want to your cart and fill in your details.  Your card will be emailed to you when your purchase is completed. 

When the time is right, you simply forward the e-Gift Card to your lucky recipient and it’s there for them to use whenever they want.

How do I use an e-Gift Card?+

It’s easy. At checkout enter your card number into the Gift Card or Discount Code box, then press ‘Apply’. That’s it.

Use as little or as much of your e-Gift Card as you want for you order and use it as often as you want.  It won’t expire until the full amount of the card has been used.  

If at any point your order is a higher value than the amount on your card, simply sort what’s remaining with a credit card, Paypal or Google Pay. 

How can I check the balance on my e-Gift Card??+

Pop an email to hello@cocktailcollective.com and we can let you know what your balance is. 

When do e-Gift Cards expire and can I return it?+

E-gift vouchers don’t expire until the full value of the voucher is used up.

They are not refundable but re-gifting is free and simple (just email it on).

Where does Cocktail Collective Ship?+

We currently ship to everywhere New Zealand.  From Cape Reinga to the Bluff, everywhere in between and beyond to Stewart Island. 

Do you ship beyond New Zealand?

Does someone have to be home to sign for the delivery?+

We provide an Authority to Leave (ATL) service, which is a standard delivery method with Courier Post. When you make a purchase from us you agree we have ATL to leave your order at your designated delivery address.  Our delivery agent will do this in accordance with any delivery instructions you have provided. No one needs to be home or to sign for the delivery.

If I'm not home, can you leave my order with someone else?+

If someone is home to receive your delivery, we will assume that the person accepting delivery at your designated address is authorised by you to accept delivery on your behalf. Note that we will not leave alcohol products with anyone under 18 years of age.

Who isn't able to accept delivery of my order?+

It’s important to us that we do the right thing, particularly in the sale and supply of alcohol products.  Please remember we will not leave your order with anyone who is under 18 years old or anyone who is, or appears to be intoxicated.  In these instances we’ll arrange for delivery at another time and let you know if an additional delivery fee is applicable. 

I’m in a hurry. Can you deliver overnight or on a Saturday or Sunday?+

Things happen last minute all the time so here’s how we can help.  We have expedited shipping options, which include overnight delivery to Wellington and the South Island plus a Saturday delivery option.  

We don’t deliver Sundays. It’s a licencing restriction.

How can I arrange for my order to arrive on/before a specific date?+

A lot of our customers want their order to arrive on or before the weekend or a specific date like a birthday, a trip away or when visitors are arriving.  

Some are super organised and sort their order early but request we hold off shipping so they don’t get their order early.

Whatever your delivery requirements are, we’re here to help.  Email us at help@cocktailcollective.com (ideally in advance of ordering) and alert us to the date you’d like delivery and we’ll confirm what we can do to help. This happens more than you might think and we can usually make it happen.

Do you ship to PO Boxes?+

Sorry, we’re unable to deliver to a PO Box.

Do you deliver on Public Holidays?+

There are specific public holidays within the year when delivery of alcohol is prohibited by law.  

These are: Christmas day, Easter Sunday, Good Friday and ANZAC Day (before 1pm)

Please note, that we don’t dispatch or deliver on other public holidays like Labour Day, Anniversary Day or ANZAC day after 1pm, as our hard-working team take a well-deserved break. We’ll aim to deliver on the next  (non-holiday) working day.
