Order Processing and Shipping
We will process your order within 48 business hours: 9am - 5pm Mon to Fri NZST.
If the artwork is in a current exhibition, order processing may be delayed - a note will appear on the product screen if this is the case.
To ensure you always pay a fair price for delivery you will be presented with exact shipping rates in the checkout, based upon the items you have ordered and your delivery address.
You can also place an order with us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and pay using Direct Credit, Cheque or Gift Voucher in advance of delivery.
If you have a special shipping requirement or need something delivered quickly, please contact email@example.com.
If an order requires custom made art packaging it may take up to an extra 5 working days to process.
If a parcel is returned to Seed due to a buyer error in the specified address, a redelivery fee will apply.
If an editioned artwork is not in stock, Seed will contact you as quickly as possible and either refund you OR contact the artist to see if another edition is available to fulfil your order.
It is the buyer’s responsibility to promptly advise Seed if an order is not delivered when expected. A late delivery does not constitute reasonable grounds to reject an order.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Items under NZ$2,000 in value sent by International Economy Courier are covered for loss or damage by standard compensation. Items valued between NZ$2,000 and NZ$50,000 are classified as high risk items and can only be sent if additional compensation cover is purchased for 1.06% of the item’s declared value. In this event, we will contact you directly to discuss payment for the additional insurance cover.
Due to size restrictions, not all items available on our web site can be shipped internationally using NZ Post. We will look at alternative freight options and in the unlikely event that no other suitable option is available and we’re unable to ship the item to you, we will provide a full refund.
Please note that you are responsible for compliance with all relevant local laws and any import duties or sales taxes that may be applied to your order at the port of entry. Seed has no control over these charges: we cannot advise what the costs will be or pay any taxes or duties on your behalf - for more information, please contact your local customs authority.
