Our secure server software (SSL) is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions to a level of at least 128 bits.

For New Zealand magazines, the Industry Standard Delivery Schedules are:

  • For weekly publications please allow up to two to four weeks for your first delivery.
  • For monthly publications please allow up to four to six weeks for your first delivery.
  • For bi-monthly publications please allow up to six to eight weeks for your first delivery.

For international magazines that come out weekly, fortnightly and monthly, you should generally allow 4-8 weeks for your subscription to start. Therefore, if your mag comes out monthly, you should probably receive the next issue. If it comes out fortnightly, you might have to wait between 2-4 issues.

If your magazine comes out quarterly or three times a year, mag nation will wait until the next issue arrives before sending it out. We do this simply to ensure you do not get any duplicate copies.

For example, if a quarterly magazine came out on the 1st of Jan, and you subscribe on the 15th of Jan, we will send you your first copy when the next issue comes out on the 1st of April.

Only if you subscribe to an annual or bi-annual magazine which comes out once or twice a year will you receive the current issue within 2-4 weeks.

For books and stationery, we aim to  ship your order within 48 hours. Allow 2-4 days delivery for items sent within New Zealand.We will contact you via email if your item is not currently in stock.
