A little while ago I wrote an article about how New Zealanders should take advantage of the strong dollar and shop on overseas websites (here). DHL recently released some figures that show a 26.6% growth in deliveries to New Zealand between March and September. The main reason for the rise is the buying power the New Zealand dollar offers. Kiwi consumers who are becoming more aware of the fact that they can get a variety of items overseas for a lot cheaper are taking to the internet for their shopping needs.
The top 5 sites where Kiwi’s are shopping:
Probably the largest e-commerce website that has a strong presence around the world. They offer a variety of items which include books, electronics and beauty products just to name a few. It is popular with Kiwis as a place to buy books, music, clothing and jewellery – Click here to visit Amazon.com
