North Island: We are committed to providing quality grocery products. We have a Refund & Returns Policy that covers product quality and pricing issues for goods purchased from a North Island PAK’nSAVE.

Please choose your items carefully as we do not offer refunds, exchanges, or replacements if you change your mind. Read the Foodstuffs North Island Refund and Returns Policy

South Island: If items you have purchased are damaged, faulty or spoiled at the time of pick-up, we will comply with our obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993. Please contact our Customer Support Centre on 0800 PAKNSAVE (0800 725672) if you receive an item that you consider to be damaged, faulty or spoiled. Proof of purchase will be required.

You can order up to seven days in advance of the day you want to collect your groceries from your PAK'nSAVE store. Occasionally we may release timeslots early which will be displayed within the timeslot selection dropdown.
If a product you have ordered is not available, we will try to substitute it with a similar product of equal or higher quality, but we will only charge you an equal or lower price. 

Before submitting your order you can let us know if you are happy for us to substitute an alternative item for you if the one you have chosen is out of stock. If you let us know that you happy to accept substitutions, your Personal Shopper will endeavour to select a similar item for you if the original item you have ordered is unavailable.

There are some products we do not substitute such as alcohol, baby formula, hair dye and vitamins. These products are usually specifically chosen by customers based on personal taste and preference and therefore aren’t appropriate to substitute.

You can buy most things online however there are some exclusions such as flowers, gift cards, tobacco, hot food, oversized items and very heavy items. 

Your order is assembled by a personal shopper at your chosen PAK'nSAVE store. 

Once you've checked out, you'll receive a confirmation email, detailing all the products, quantities and an estimated order value.

If you're logged in, your cart will be saved automatically and the items will remain in your cart until you purchase them. If you're logged in on other devices,, you’ll be able to see any items you’ve added. Please keep in mind that specials and deals are only available for a certain period of time and will be priced at the date the order is submitted.
No, we do not supply trade customers. If we suspect that you are purchasing goods for resale, then we will not fulfil your order.

Pricing and payment

The service fee for Click & Collect is $5, whatever the value of your order, plus $1 bag fee.

While we endeavour for our online prices to match in-store prices, they may not always be the same.

You can pay either by credit or debit card - Visa or Mastercard. American Express cards are also accepted at most stores, with the exception of PAK’nSAVE Mangere, PAK’nSAVE New Plymouth and PAK’nSAVE Dunedin. Farmlands cards aren't accepted online.

For additional security, if it’s your first time collecting an online order we may ask you to show us ID and the payment card that was used to purchase the order.

A nominal amount of $1 will be taken from your payment card at the time your order is placed and then at each subsequent edit when you checkout. The charge is to ensure your card is valid and these charges will be reversed by your bank within 7 days.

Payment for your final order is charged once we have picked and assembled your order, which in most cases is the day your order is due to be collected.

If your credit or debit card is declined by your financial institution, we will contact you to make alternative payment arrangements. We can only release your order for collection once it has been paid.

Any product special advertised on the day the order is placed will be honoured, regardless of the order pick up date.
The final value of your order may differ from the estimated total. Items in your order are charged at the price applicable at the time you submit your order or any subsequent order amends, except in the following cases:
  • when an item is out of stock – you won’t be charged for that item;
  • if we substitute an item – you'll be charged an equal or lower price than the price of the original item;
  • variable weight products – when we pack your order, we weigh the items and charge the price per kilo at the time you ordered for the exact weight supplied.
Yes, you do; it will be emailed to you after we assemble your order. You will receive a packing list with your order. 

Yes, you will receive a fuel voucher with your order. This voucher will be printed on your packing slip (which you receive with your order) and on your invoice (which is emailed to you).

Yes, PAK'nSAVE online takes payment security seriously. We are PCI DSS compliant and we do not transmit or store unencrypted credit card details. When you save a payment card to your account it is stored as a token to protect your sensitive data.

For extra fraud protection, 3D Secure (3DS) requires customers to complete an additional verification step with the card issuer if you add a new card. When you add a payment card to your online account you will be directed to a short bank process, where you will be required to complete a two-factor authentication step (2FA). Some common examples of 2FA are receiving a one time code to your phone when you make a payment; or when your bank asks for confirmation via its app that you’re really logging in.
Yes, you can have more than one credit or debit card linked to your account. When you save a payment card to your account it is stored as a token to protect your sensitive data. Each time you shop with us online you’ll be able to choose which card you want to use to checkout.
If your card doesn't get added to your account the first time, the best thing to do is check all the details you have entered are correct and try again. If you still get an error message after retrying then you will need to contact your card provider.

Some prepaid and payment cards do not support 3DS authentication and may not be able to be used. If you're unable to add your card please check with your card provider - they will be able to confirm if their card supports 3DS security verification.
