Welcome to Chooice!
Chooice (with two Os for more owesome) is the Kiwi-as way to shop. And we’re proudly 100% Kiwi owned and operated!
Back in the day, Chooice was a Facebook group called New Zealand Made Products, but now we’ve got a flash-as website too that makes it even easier to support Kiwi.

How do I search by categories?
Just click on Stores in the top banner to check out our categories.
Who do I contact if I haven’t received my order?
You’ll want to get in touch with the seller you made the order with, as they’ll be organising your shipping for you. You can find their details in your invoice which will automatically be sent to you once you’ve paid.
Do you offer Buy Now, Pay Later?
Not yet, but it’s in the works! At the mo’, our payment system sends payment straight to the seller. That means, because it doesn’t come through us, we can’t offer Buy Now, Pay Later just yet. But we hear you, and we’re looking for a work-around!
A product I like isn’t in stock. How can I pre-order?
Some sellers make products to order, and some hold stock instead. So if you find something you love and it’s not showing as available for purchase, get in touch with the vendor directly (using the contact info in their Chooice shop homepage banner). They’ll be chuffed to hear from you!
I want a refund
The first thing you’ll wanna do is contact the seller. But if you don’t get a response within a reasonable amount of time, get in touch with us at email@example.com. We can then reach out to the vendor ourselves, but we’ll need to give them 48 hours to get back to us. If they don’t respond within that time, we can chat about your options for a refund or credit.
We have to follow this process because the contract of sale is between you and the seller, so we can’t refund you without getting them involved.
Do you charge any fees?
We have a $5 monthly Membership fee and 5% success fee for sellers. Our third party payment gateway Stripe charges $0.55 + 3.15% for every successful card transaction.
