Amazon And Australians

How Amazon Works Globally

Amazon has a setup up so that it automatically directs all its customers to either the Amazon US store, or their closest international store.


This means that currently customers located in the following countries are directed to their nearest store: United Kingdom (UK), Canada, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and Japan. Up until 1st July 2017, everyone else, including Australians, were directed to Amazon.com.

What's Changed Since 1st July 2017


Since 1st July, Amazon have blocked products being sent to Australians from its stores located outside of Australia. This is due to the Australian Government's request that all international companies now collect the Goods and Services Tax (GST) off their Australian customers.  


Before now, Australian's could purchase goods from any international store up to the value of $1000 AUD before having to pay tax.  


Australians can visit Amazon US and look at products, but you'll find as you get to the Checkout that you're blocked from completing a purchase.

 

As we know, Amazon set up its first distribution centre in Australia in December 2017, but they are yet to put in place the software which allows websites such as mine to to automatically direct anyone located in Australia to Amazon.com.au.

 

Until this software is set up, the only way I can direct Australian visitors to the products I review, is manually through this page.

Below are links to the general listings that I review on this website.

This is an independent family operated business with a passion for the outdoors. They provide exception customer service and have expert staff on hand to give any technical advice you need. They also have competitive prices and super-fast dispatch and delivery. 


Customers outside of Australia can pay using PayPal or credit card. As well as these options, customers within Australia can also pay with a debit card or collect directly from the store if you're anywhere near the Gold Coast.
