As long as the stuff your importing is of good quality, then chances are you wont have a problem. (We bring in PSUs from china/taiwan)

The plug is the big one, loads of people bring stuff in with a china plug which will not hold in NZ outlets because the pins are thinner, have the cable coming out the top since they have the plugs the other way up, dont have the now mandatory sheithed pins and also may be using cable thinner then 0.75mm² for the mains cable.

Also, be aware that selling things with foregn plugs and supplying a travel adapter (Like loads of parallel imported places do with phones etc) is actually illegal as well, since things sold in NZ for use in NZ have to have an AS3112 plug on it.
