Dispatch & shipping weights

Orders received daily after 8am (NZDT) cannot be guaranteed same day dispatch.

All orders are determined by their volumetric weight over their physical weight. Even though a product may weigh very little, it's volumetric weight is likely to be greater. For example, one of our Father Rabbit wooden drying racks weighs approximately 3kg but due to it's size, it's volumetric weight is just over 10kg.

Deliveries take place Monday to Friday. Once the courier has picked up your order from Father Rabbit HQ, you'll be emailed a tracking number so that you can follow the journey of your parcel. 

If you or your gift recipient are not home (and you have not suggested they can leave at the door), a card to call will be left in the letterbox. We use Courier Post for PO Box addresses, rural addresses or if you live on Waiheke Island.

If the incorrect freight option is selected, we will contact you by email to arrange payment of the difference.

Payment options and credit card security

We accept DPS, PAYPAL and bank deposit (NZ only) payments. Please see more information below.


Father Rabbit uses the DPS Payment Express Payment Gateway for its online credit card transactions.  This is a very easy credit card processing service for customers, especially those customers purchasing from another country for delivery in New Zealand as Paypal sometimes has issues if you are in one country and sending to another.  Please note we don't accept AMEX with DPS only Visa and Mastercard. (Paypal does accept Amex).

DPS processes online credit card transactions securely for thousands of merchants globally, providing a safe and secure online payment service.

How secure is this store?

When you choose to use Paypal for payments, and PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available).

Do I need a PayPal account to make a purchase? 

No. PayPal has optimized the checkout experience with an exciting improvement to their payment flow.

For new buyers, signing up for a PayPal account is now optional. This means Father Rabbit Limited customers can complete their payments first, and then decide whether to save their information in a PayPal account for future purchases.

Here’s how this easier checkout works:

  1. Customers enter their name and shipping address.
  2. They’re prompted for their credit card, email address, and phone number.
  3. (Optional) After reviewing their information, they may choose to save their information by creating a PayPal account to make future transactions faster.

Please note that PayPal’s fraud prevention measures remain in effect for buyers who use this checkout even though the customer hasn’t created an account.

Bank Deposit

This is for our New Zealand customers only. 

You will be sent by email our bank account details to make payment into our account once you place your order.Your purchase will be sent when we can see the money in our bank account. Sometimes this can take a couple of days between banks.

It is also useful to select this option if you intend to pick up your purchase in our Herne Bay store. You can then pay by eftpos or cash in store.


Currency information

All prices are in New Zealand Dollars and Father Rabbit Limited charges your credit card in New Zealand dollars.  You can view different currency prices by changing to another currency in the footer of the website.  You can choose USD, Euro, GBP or AUD.

If you live outside New Zealand, and have a foreign currency credit card, the New Zealand amount will be charged to your card  using your provider's current exchange rates.   Please remember that buy/sell exchange rates can be different depending on when your credit card provider processes the transaction, so the amount that appears on your credit card statement may be slightly different to the converted invoiced amount. Credit card companies may also charge international payment fees and/or commission for selling you foreign currency. Please contact your credit card provider directly for their terms and conditions.
