richms: Everything is repacked in a larger box overseas. Nz is the only country where cheapass retailers slap a courier ticket onto the manufacturers box and trust it to the couriers.
that's how my amazon uk parcel arrived - original amazon box with youshop applied shipping labels.
also took a week longer than it should have due to my item sitting in their uk warehouse for a week and the fact that youshop only shipped out of the uk three times a week (they don't tell you that in the faq !).
at least i got my vat back...
