Secure Shopping

Natural Paint Co is conscious of the need for privacy and security for your online shopping experience.

We use sophisticated encryption technology. This means at the checkout, our servers and your PC encrypt (scramble) everything that you enter into your computer, such as credit card details, billing and delivery address. Because it is encrypted, other computers are unable to make sense of it, therefore keeping this information private.

There are visual clues on screen that tell you when you have entered a secure environment: at the bottom of your browser, the key or padlock icon, which is normally broken, becomes solid and the address of the document you are accessing begins with https:// (secure hypertext transfer protocol).

As part of the software used by Natural Paint Co there are secure processes built into the store. Specifically, the engine ensures:

  • Every order has a unique number
  • Every order is logged in a robust database
  • All your payment details can only be retrieved by Natural Paint Co in an encrypted session
  • Confirmation emails of your order are sent to you, the customer


We only email you if you want us to. We do not send unsolicited emails. When you register your email address with us, you can choose not to go on a list to receive email announcements about products, offers and promotions from us.

Every email message we send includes an email address to which you can respond. If at any time you decide you do not want to receive our emails, simply click the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of the newsletter. If you unsubscribe you will continue to receive emails specifically related to your online orders.

Orders and Delivery

An order made via this site is an offer to purchase one or more products. When we receive a valid order from you, we will accept this offer by confirming via email that we have received and are processing the order.

We will deliver the products set out in your order (“products”) almost anywhere in New Zealand. We do not deliver outside New Zealand, however, an overseas order may still be placed with a New Zealand delivery address. Delivery is made by courier.

We endeavour to deliver all products within 24 hours of us confirming receipt of the order, although this timeframe is an estimate only. If we are not able to supply the products or there is likely to be a significant delay in making delivery (e.g. because the product is out of stock) we will notify you as soon as reasonably possible after we become aware of this, in which case you may cancel the order (or any part of it) and you will receive a refund (including the applicable delivery charges) in respect of those products which will not be delivered (if any).

Delivery is usually the following working day within the South Island and 2-3 working days for North Island.

Please add a further 2-3 working days for rural delivery. All items are sent by Track and Trace Courier. You will be sent an email advising you that your order has been received along with your tracking details.

We will not otherwise be liable to you for any damages, costs or expenses of any kind, suffered or incurred by you due to the order not being fulfilled or the products not being delivered within the anticipated delivery time. Goods may not be returned to Natural Paint Co for the reason of late delivery by the freight or courier company.

The anticipated delivery charges (if applicable) will be notified to you when you complete the order. We will notify you if the actual delivery charges are higher than those anticipated, in which case you may cancel the order (or any part of it) prior to delivery and receive a refund (including the applicable delivery charges) in respect of the cancelled order. Please note, our Citrus Thinner is classed as a “Dangerous Good” because of it’s flammability and may take longer to transport around the country.

Please see our Shipping Page for full delivery pricing.

Please also note that deliveries to the Outer Islands (Chatham Island, Stewart Island, Kawau Island, Waiheke Island, Matakana Island, Great Barrier Island and d’Urville Island) will incur additional costs. Please contact us directly at [email protected] or (03) 343 2121 to find out these rates.

Most orders can be processed within 1 working day of receiving payment if the order is placed before 12pm Monday to Friday. Colour matching may take up to five working days.
