Who we are
Emmaus Hut is a 100% NZ owned and operated online shop selling Christian grace-based DVDs and CDs in New Zealand. We operate as a business under New Zealand laws and commit to comply with the Consumer Guarantees Act as well as the Fair Trading Act. We are committed to bringing our readers and customers Christian grace-based resources at the best price with the best service possible. While we do pay staff a fair salary, we endeavour to put as much as possible of our proceeds back into growing the ministry and the store for the furtherance of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We bring you grace-based books through Book Depository, which offers books at great prices in your currency of choice. All book purchases are processed on the Book Depository website and handled by Book Depository at their prices which includes free shipping worldwide. Any issues or enquiries concerning cancellations, missing shipments or refunds for book purchases must be dealt with Book Depository directly. We’re an affiliate of Book Depository and earn a small referral fee for books purchased referred through our site or links. This fee is paid to us by Book Depository and not passed on to you in any way as the purchaser.
All prices in our shop for DVDs and CDs are quoted in NZ$ inclusive of GST. Additional shipping charges may apply for purchases under NZ$75. What you pay to us will be the total price (including shipping charges if any) as stated at the checkout at the time of your order.
All payments for DVDs and CDs purchased on our site are to be made using the methods stated in the Shopping Cart section. We do not accept Cash on Delivery orders. All payments are made through our secure payment gateway (Paypal Express) and we do not hold any payment card information. Customers under the age of 18 are advised to seek parental consent before placing an order.
Processing and shipping your order
Once you place an order for a DVD or CD in the Shopping Cart, it will take up to 3 days for us to process your order. You will receive a confirmation email when your order is processed and also when it is shipped.
We will contact you if we are unable to process your order e.g. if your shipment gets lost and we are out of stock of the DVD or CD you ordered. We’ll let you know if we are unable to restock this item and proceed to cancel and refund your order.
Unless you specify otherwise, all orders of DVDs and CDs will be shipped on standard shipping times (3-6 business days) at an additional charge of NZ$5 (up to 1 kg in weight). Shipping to rural and South Island may take longer and charges for parcels heavier than 1 kg will be higher.
Purchases DVDs and CDs over NZ$75 in one order will enjoy free standard shipping within New Zealand. Please ensure that you have entered your correct shipping address when placing your order as errors may result in delays and additional reshipping charges.
We will always try to send your order in a single package/delivery. If this is not possible for whatever reason, we will contact you for a confirmation to send your order in multiple packages (we will absorb the excess shipping fee if it’s due to something on our end, otherwise shipping charges will apply per package).
At the current time we regret that we are unable to ship DVDs or CDs outside New Zealand.
If your order of DVDs or CDs does not get to you within 15 days of the date they were dispatched, please contact us within 15 days to arrange for a reshipment or refund. We regret that we will not be able to entertain any requests of non-delivery if we do not hear from you by 30 days after the date of dispatch.
