Once your order has been accepted, you will receive an order confirmation via email. Please check this confirmation carefully and inform us of any mistakes as soon as possible. If you wish to cancel an order, you must inform us before 9.00am the next business day.
**PLEASE NOTE: rather than charging you for purchases when you place your order, the JB Hi-Fi Online website places a temporary hold on credit card funds, which automatically expires after 5 business days. Your credit card will only be debited when your order is ready to dispatch. If your items are ordered well in advance of release and PayPal is being used, the funds may be on hold for up to 100 days.
The JB Hi-Fi website does not hold a large amount of CD / DVD / game stock on-hand - therefore some ordered items are provided by suppliers on demand. The stated availability of an item takes into account the time taken to receive the item from the supplier. On occasion, suppliers are unable to fulfil your order. Should this occur, we will inform you as soon as possible. For consumer electronics orders, items are sourced from our supply stores across the country. We will inform you as soon as possible of any significant supply delays or problems with deleted items.
Once ordered items are received from suppliers and your order is ready to dispatch, we will process the purchase on your credit card/PayPal/gift card, then pack and dispatch your order.
If you want to purchase an item, you need to add that item to your cart before going through the secure check out process.

CD / DVD / GAME PRE-ORDERS
All pre-order items on our site are available to order now. Please note that we now allow functionality so that you CAN order a pre-order item with an item already released on the same order. We will split your order so the pre-ordered item becomes its own order and the rest of the items ship when they are available.
As freight is charged by weight, the freight costs will be split across your pre-order item and the balance of your order. Therefore it may appear that you have been charged a higher freight for the pre-order item than you should, however, once the balance of the order is shipped it will even out to the correct freight across ALL items on the order.
Please note that “Pre-Order” does NOT imply that you will receive the item earlier than the official release date. If we have authorisation, we will always endeavour to ship your goods prior to release date so you will receive them as close to release date as possible. However, sometimes embargoes are placed on items meaning that we cannot ship them before the official release date. Please remember to include the standard mail delivery times when estimating when you will receive your Pre-Ordered item.
Pre-order items can also be added to your wish list.
All our normal Terms & Conditions apply for pre-orders.
CONSUMER ELECTRONICS PRE-ORDERS
We will always endeavour to keep at the forefront of technology and add the details of upcoming CE items to our website. These items can be Pre-Ordered, but please remember that they cannot ship until stock arrives in the country and this can be difficult to estimate accurately at times. Manufacturing and sea freight delays can and do occur and these are out of our control. We will keep Pre-Order customers updated on their items as regularly as possible.[Back to top]

We currently accept payment by credit card (Visa or Mastercard) and PayPal. JB Hi-Fi uses industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and encryption technology to ensure any sensitive information passing over the internet during transactions is secure.
JB Hi-Fi Online does not finalise the charge to your credit card or PayPal account at the time your order is placed. We only charge you once the items in your order are allocated and the order is being prepared to ship. In the meantime, your funds are put on hold through your bank but do not attract interest until the transaction is made. Checking your bank statement or PayPal account online will show this money being placed ‘on hold’, but unless there is a reference number attached to it, the money has not actually been debited to your account. If, for whatever reason, your order is cancelled / unable to be delivered, your bank will free up the pending transaction funds. This may take up to 5 working days (please check with your bank if you need confirmation on how many days as this varies from bank to bank).
Refer to our Terms & Conditions regarding responsibility for unavailable items or cancelled orders.
JB Hi-Fi Online does not hold a large amount of CD / DVD and Games stock - some product is ordered from the supplier on demand. From time to time suppliers will inform us that they are no longer able to supply an ordered item. Should this occur, you will be informed as soon as possible via email, and the item will be removed from your order. Order will be voided if they contain only deleted items, and customers informed as soon as possible via email. No refund is required as payment is not processed until items are ready to dispatch.
From time to time suppliers are not able to supply in the time indicated, and items are placed on backorder. If it appears that your order will not be dispatched on time, you will be informed as soon as possible. You will be offered the opportunity to cancel your order at that time, otherwise your order will be dispatched as soon as the items are available.
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide expected dispatch times for backordered items, though items will be sourced and dispatched as soon as possible. If you have a backordered item and wish to cancel your order, please email us with your order number and cancellation request.
For consumer electronics orders, items are sourced from supplier stores across New Zealand and availability will be indicated on our website. Sometimes, items may be in-stock in some states but not others and we will indicate this where possible. For out of stock items, they will be back ordered and we will endeavour to give customers an ETA before we finalise their order. Please note that ETAs are based on manufacturer shipping times and can be subject to change.
CD / DVD / Game Orders
We only ship orders when all items on the order are available to dispatch.
Customers can choose to split their orders so available stock ships immediately. They will need to send this request via email and extra delivery fees may apply.
Occasionally, JB Hifi may elect to split customer orders to free up warehouse space. Customers will be advised of the split item dispatch via email. In these cases, any extra delivery fees will be covered by JB Hifi.
Consumer Electronics Orders
While JB Hi-Fi stores carry large inventories to provide customers with a wide selection, it is not practical to hold copies of all the items available on this website.
Consumer Electronics Items
Nearly all items seen on our website will be available at JB Hifi stores. Sometimes JB Hifi Online will offer exclusive items that will ship direct from the supplier and will not be available in stores. If you are looking to buy CE items in-store, again we recommend that you call the store ahead of your visit to confirm availability.
Wherever possible, prices in store and on the website will be the same. However, price variations between the website and stores, and between stores themselves, will occur when different suppliers are used for the same item, or when import titles are purchased at different times. Exchange rate movements have can impact on the price of products that JB Hi-Fi import. Stores and / or the website buying titles in bulk when on sale from our suppliers can cause price differences as this stock is sold through at the cheaper price with the savings passed on to you - stores and / or the website may sell out faster than each other and cause a temporary price variation.
Prices of CE items should match JB Hifi stores at all times. Occasionally there may be a time lapse between store prices synching with our online database and vice versa. Please drop us an email if you’ve seen any price difference between our online store and a bricks’n’mortar JB Hifi store. We will always try and match the price for you.
