Terms & Conditions Of Purchase

When placing an order with Chrisco Distribution Ltd, you are agreeing to the following Terms and Conditions.

You can view Our Guarantee here.


Payment start date

Once you have placed your order, payments via Direct Debit and Automatic Payment will start on the date you selected.

Payments on Public Holidays

Your Direct Debit payment will come out the working day prior. Please note that Chrisco Distribution Ltd is located in Auckland, therefore we observe Auckland Anniversary (we still collect payments on Auckland Anniversary). If you wish to skip a payment on a public holiday, or on the day after, you will need to let us know before midday on the working day prior.

Missed payments

If you miss a payment we will automatically recalculate and slightly increase your future payments so that your order is fully paid by the Final Payment Date. If several payments are missed, we will reduce your order to make the remaining payments easier. We are not responsible for your bank charges if payments fail.

If you are unable to keep paying, we will reduce your order to the amount you have already paid, and you will still receive products and/or vouchers for Christmas. We are happy to discuss your order at any time. Simply Contact Us.

We reserve the right to reduce or cancel your order should your payments fall too far behind.

Direct Debit Authority

If you are paying by Direct Debit, you will need to complete a Direct Debit Authority to allow a payment to be automatically deducted from your bank account. By filling out the Direct Debit Request form, you are authorising Chrisco Distribution Ltd to debit your payments from your chosen account. At midnight on the day you have chosen (usually your pay day), our bank debits your account electronically. It’s easy. Just fill in the form and then... relax.

Stopping a Direct Debit payment

If you call us on 0800 555 333 by midday the working day before your payment is due we can stop a payment (i.e.: before Friday midday for a Monday payment).


From time to time our customers forget to stop paying us money for their hampers.  This is inconvenient for us, and inconvenient for you.  If you are not planning to use the HeadStart plan and place an order in the following year, you should tell your bank to cancel your automatic payments to us when your order is paid. 

Where you keep paying us after your hamper is paid for we are always happy to refund your money or to credit your next order.   We need to get hold of you to do this: see the “CONTACTING YOU” section below. 

If we cannot get hold of you to get your instructions to apply or refund a credit balance that is greater than six months old and less than $25 in value, then you agree we may deem your balance to be $0.  As long as your last transaction with us was not more than two years ago, if we later mange to find you, or you contact us, then we will restore your credit balance.



We may have to contact you in the course of the year.  This can happen for many reasons.  It is in your interests that we have your most recent and accurate contact details at all times.  You should update us if your contact details change.  If you have not done this and we cannot get hold of you (we will take reasonable efforts to locate you) then we reserve the right to recoup the costs we may be put to in trying to find you.  You agree that if we have to do this, then we may deduct those costs from your credit balance.  You agree that our efforts in trying to find you in this situation is something that we are entitled to charge you for.  The minimum service charge for this is $5 per attempt.



What is a HeadStart Plan? A HeadStart Plan allows you to make payments towards next year’s order, while giving you time to decide exactly which products you want. Once your 2019 order is fully paid, a HeadStart Plan for 2020 will automatically be created for you and your direct debit payments will continue (for the same amount as your second last payment for your 2019 order).

What if I don’t want a HeadStart Plan? If you do not want to have a HeadStart plan, you can tick the red box on the order form or simply call us on 0800 555 333 and we can do it for you.

What will my payments be under a HeadStart Plan? We will write to you to confirm the amount and other details of your HeadStart Plan payments prior to commencing your direct debits under the HeadStart Plan.

Are my payments refundable? Payments under your HeadStart Plan are fully refundable unless and until you convert them into an order for 2020. Once payments under your HeadStart Plan are converted into an order for 2020, Chrisco Distribution Ltd's Cancellation Policy will apply to your 2020 order (see below for details, or the Terms and Conditions of Purchase on Chrisco Distribution Ltd website: http://www.chriscodistribution.co.nz/TermsAndConditions/default.aspx). You can convert your HeadStart Plan into an order for 2020 by filling out the order from in next year’s catalogue, by giving us a call on 0800 555 333, or going online at chriscodistribution.co.nz

What if I don’t convert my HeadStart Plan into an order? If you have not converted your HeadStart Plan into an order by 14th February 2020, Chrisco will automatically place an order for you for goods of a similar value to your 2019 order (unless you tell us not to do this). Orders that are automatically placed by Chrisco are fully refundable unless and until you confirm your order. Once you confirm your order, Chrisco’s Cancellation Policy will apply (see below for details, or the Terms and Conditions of Purchase on Chrisco’s website: http://www.chriscodistribution.co.nz/TermsAndConditions/default.aspx

Free Gift To give you an extra helping hand, chrisco will give a free gift with a retail value of at least $25 to customers whose HeadStart Plan is converted into an order for 2020 (limit one free gift per customer)

All weekly payments are rounded up to the nearest 5 cents, excluding gift cards and vouchers. However, you will only ever pay the total amount shown.

Should there be any alteration in rates of GST, tax or duty, or any unforeseen product or fuel price increases, Chrisco Distribution Ltd reserves the right to substitute or adjust hamper contents accordingly to cover the increase.  We will only be doing this to cover our costs, and will cap any decrease in value of your hamper at 20 per cent.  If we have to use our right to reduce your order we will give you reasonable notice and you have a right to cancel and get a full refund at no cost to you.
