These Terms & Conditions (as written below) will apply to you.


For all “New Zealand” based orders:
Currently hosted via Trade Me auctions:


Here now are those TERMS & CONDITIONS:

After placing an order, which shall include the supply to “us” of “your” delivery address

& “your” contact telephone number &/or “your” email address;

“You” will then receive contact (preferrrably an email) from “us” (or from Trade Me itself):

Acknowledging that “we” have received “your” order.

Please note that this does not mean that “your” order has been accepted
(unless you have WON via an auction).

“Your” order constitutes an offer made by “you” to “us”, to buy the relevant products (if any) on offer by “us”.

All orders are subject to acceptance by “us”, after & thus upon full payment of advertised price (including delivery costs if included in sale offer)

And “we” shall confirm such acceptance to “you” by sending “you” an email that confirms:

That the products have been dispatched (called the: Dispatch Confirmation).


The contract between “us” & “you” (called the: Sale Contract) will only be formed:

When “we” send “you” the Dispatch Confirmation.

The Contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch “we” have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation.


1/- “We” will not be obliged to supply any other products,

which may have been part of “your” initial (or later applied for) order,

until “we” confirm the payment for such items has been received

& the dispatch of such products (sent via a separate Dispatch Confirmation).

2/- If “your” order is conditional on all items being supplied at the same time & via the same dispatch,

please specify this in the “additional comments” box at the point of purchase.

Such “combined” products order will only be dispatched to “you”, upon availability by “us”,

to supply all such “combined” products thus ordered.

Orders for Goods:

When “you” order products from on this website,

1/- “You” confirm that “you” are purchasing the products in “your” basket, and

2/- that “you” will pay for these products in full (before their dispatch).

If “you” have selected an offline order which “you” confirm (by any method previously agreed to between “us”)

and that it is “your” intention to purchase these products and that “you” will dispatch payment without delay.

“We”, once “your” order has entered “our” automated ONLINE queue to be dispatched,

shall dispatch said items forthwith and thus:

Any such order made offline CANNOT BE CANCELLED once made.

“We” call this our ‘Dispatch Packing Queue’:

And “we” will email “you” to notify “you” of such dispatch when “your” order reaches this stage.

Please be aware that if “you” have not notified “us” that “you” wish to cancel “your” order

(before “we” send “you” this email):

Then the delivery of “your” order can not be stopped and “you” will then need to return the goods to “us”

(using “your” right to cancel – as set out below).

Product descriptions:

Product descriptions on this site can change at any time, for example when a product is updated by the manufacturer.

Changes will not affect products for which “you” have already received a Dispatch Confirmation.


Before placing an order, please check that the description meets “your” needs.

Delivery of products:

“We” shall send the products to the address “you” state when placing the order.

‘We” will attempt to deliver the products by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation

Or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation,

(unless there are exceptional circumstances beyond “our” control).

Once the products have been delivered, they are “your” responsibility and shall be delivered at “your” risk.

If the products are lost or damaged in transit, please let “us” know as soon as possible.

“Your” right to cancel (domestic consumers only):


Any product purchased for the use in “any” commercial operation or Business activity IS NON RETURNABLE

(unless agreed to by “us” – & ONLY in accordance with prior correspondence between “us”).

If “you” are contracting as a domestic consumer (that is, not buying products for a business or organisation),:

Then the following right applies to “you”.

If “you” are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract (for any reasonable reason at all);

At any time within 7 working days, beginning on the day after “you” received the products.

In this case, “you” will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products in accordance with “our” refunds policy

(as set out below).

To cancel any Contract, “you” must inform “us” in writing by email via emailto:cancellations@[remove_antispam]WSTLNZ.co.nz

Stating both “your” order number and the fact that “you” wish to return “your'” order,

Whereupon “we” will provide “you” with further instructions.

“You” must return the products to “us” immediately, at “your” own cost and risk,

(along with all relevant documentation and accessories sent to “you” with “your” original order)

“You” will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of products that have been:

Specifically customised for “you”;

ie: Such as pre-cut or terminated speaker cables, customised amplifiers, and / or any other “specially made” product.

For reasons of hygiene “you” will not have any right to cancel any Contract (or partial Contract) for:

Headphones or Earphones / Ear.bud speakers; once “you” have opened the packaging and/or worn the headphones.

Details of this right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation.

This provision does not affect “your” statutory rights under the “NZ Consumer Guarantees Act” or the “NZ Fair Trading Act”.

Provided that the goods & or services are NOT bought in the course of business – for commercial use.

Return policy:

1/- Before returning products to “us”, “you” must keep them in “your” possession

and must take reasonable care of them.

2/- When “you” return products to “us”, for instance because “you” are a domestic consumer,

and have cancelled the Contract between “us” within 7 (business) working days of “your” receipt of the products,

or because “you” claim that the products are defective:

3/- “We” will examine the returned products for verification of “your” right of cancellation

and will notify “you” of whether “you” are entitled to a refund.


4/- “We” will replace a defective item, rather than supply “you” with a full refund,

(if that is deemed to be a more suitable option).

5/- “We” will notify “you” by email and within a reasonable period of time.

6/- “We” will usually refund any money received from “you”

using the same method originally used by “you” to pay for “your” purchase.

7/- “We” will process the refund due to “you” as soon as possible.

In any case, “we” will attempt to process the refund or replacement within 31 calender days

of the day “we” received “your” cancellation notification.

or from the day “we” confirmed to “you” via email that “you” were entitled to a valid refund

for delivery of the defective products.

8/- Products returned by “you” because of a defect from new, will be refunded in full, or replaced

(if that is your preferred option, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the replacement item

back to “you” and for the cost incurred by “you” in returning the item back to “us”).

9/- If “you” are a domestic consumer and have used the correct right to cancel (as set out above) &

If “you” cancel the Contract between “us” within 7 working days of receiving the products,

“we” will refund “you” in full, including the standard cost of sending the item to “you” in the first instance.

10/- The consumer will not be entitled to a refund on any express delivery service or any weekend delivery service,

specified at the time, of the point of purchase.

However, “you” will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to “us”.

Defective products:

If no fault is present then “we” reserve the right to charge a testing fee and to charge for return carriage.


Any product which is found be deliberately damaged, or misused in any way, by whatever method “you” use:

WILL NOT BE REFUNDED OR RETURNED and no furthur correspondence will be generated.


“We’ reserve the right to change prices of products without notice,

but such changes will not affect orders for which “we” have issued a Dispatch Confirmation.

In the unlikely event that “we” have made a pricing mistake,

“we” will advise “you” of this, and refund “your” purchase price (if paid).

“You” will not receive an email confirming acceptance of “your” order, and there will be no contract between “us”.

The price/s (if stated on the website) includes NZ GST at 15%

But does not include the cost of any delivery, which is quoted for separately – usually during the order process.
