Orders & Delivery

What postal service do you use?
We typically send locally using NZ Post or Castle Parcels on larger orders. You will be provided with a tracking number.

My tracking says delivered, but it’s not here. What do I do?
We recommend first checking around your property, mailbox and neighbours. If you have no luck, contact us and we can help you file an investigation. Unfortunately neither Ella + Eli or courier companies we use are able to refund or replace items that have been lost, damaged or stolen after being successfully delivered to your property. 

How long will it take to receive my order?
We process orders daily along with daily pickups from postal services Monday to Friday. So standard postal timings would apply +/- a day or so.

Can I change/cancel my order order?
If you manage to get back to us before we’ve sent your order, you are free to cancel. If your item is already on it’s way, you may return/swap it for something different or store credit.

Can I pick up my order in person?
Absolutely, simply choose “Pick up” in the delivery method when making your order. Address and instructions will be sent to you. Sometimes we need to have your item sent from one of our stores so we will let you know when your order is ready for pick up.

Can I purchase something as a gift for someone? 
Sure thing. Please notify us on purchase so the item can be marked as gift. This way there is no name/detail confusion if they need to return/exchange etc.

I received an email saying my order cannot be fulfilled, what happens then?
From time to time we may have inventory errors meaning we no longer carry the item you ordered, you will be offered alternatives to your order or the option to refund.
