Shopping with Rubber Monkey is as easy as browsing the site and adding items to your cart. Once you have everything you need, proceed to the Checkout where we will confirm the details of your order. Delivery options are also found here so you can choose to either ship your order to your home or business, or arrange to collect from one of our stores.

Once your order is placed and payment has been made you cannot edit it or make changes. You can view your current or past orders, by selecting the My Account button at the top of the page.
If you need to change your order after payment has been made, please get in touch by emailing us at email@example.com or calling us on 0800 4MONKEY.
We will do our very best to make the changes to your order before it ships out to you. However, we are pretty quick at processing customer orders and getting them out the door to you ASAP. Sometimes, your order might get out the door before we can make those changes. You might have to pay for additional freight costs to return any items your ordered by mistake. You can read our Returns Policy here.
Tracking your order
We use two methods of delivery. For most small to medium items, our carrier will be CourierPost. Once your item has been shipped, you will receive a notification email with the shipping reference number. All CourierPost deliveries can be tracked and traced here. If you have ordered large bulky items, they will be shipped by our in-store carrier or local freight company. Due to varying delivery dates and times with certain products, one of our team members will contact you within 24 hours of receiving your order to arrange delivery. If you require an update on your order status, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0800 4MONKEY.
Dispatch & Delivery
Freight charges are calculated by the combination of the weight and size of your item and the distance between the shipping address nominated by you and the distance to your closest Rubber Monkey store. This is done automatically as you progress through the checkout process and you will be advised of the total cost before committing to the purchase. You can nominate to pick up the items from your local Rubber Monkey store or we can ship to your work or home address. Please note, if you have special delivery instructions, contact us as soon as possible with your details. There may be additional charges for special delivery requirements.
Because all of your items may not be in-stock when you order them, we offer 'Split Shipping' as an option. This occurs when you have both in-stock item(s) in your cart and item(s) that are out of stock. For this situation we offer two options:
Ship Everything Together: We will wait until all of your items have arrived into stock, then we will ship everything together. This incurs no additional shipping costs.
Ship In-Stock Items Today: We will ship any items that are in-stock immediately, then we will wait for the rest of your items to arrive into stock and ship them in an additional shipment. This will incur an additional shipping cost based on the particular items and delivery address.
For any unique shipping requirements please contact us and we can find a solution that works best for you.
New Zealand Shipping

Is buying online safe?

Register for either of these free services and your purchases are guarded using your own personal password, which acts the same way as using your PIN or signature when you buy an item over-the-counter in a store. This verifies your identity when making your online purchase, ensuring payment is safe and secure. To learn more about Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode, visit www.visa.co.nz and www.mastercard.co.nz.
What is a 'CCV'?
The Credit Card Verification Code (CCV) is the three-digit code on your credit/debit card used as a security measure for all online transactions. It only appears on the card itself, which verifies that you, the buyer, have the credit/debit card with you during the purchase. The CCV is printed on your credit/debit card, not embossed like the account number is. Where the CCV is located depends on the type of credit/debit card you're using. On Visa/MasterCard, the CCV is the last three digits on the back.
