Amazon in Australia

A message to fellow antipodeans

 

The light has come. Amazon.com.au has opened as a proper retail portal, selling not just the downloadable wares of before, but all sorts of indispensibles including paper books. Actual books on paper.

 

If you log in and have Australia as your location, you will see a different home page on the site. If you do not log in, it will look like it has for ages.

 

I haven't actually ordered a book to see if the process works, but I am of course disappointed to see that CreateSpace books will still be shipped from the USA.

 

Even more disappointing: it seems non-CreateSpace books are shipped from the USA, too, including some produced in Australia. A comparison I just did showed AUD cost + shipping as follows:

  • Amazon.com.au $31.79
  • Booktopia.com.au $17.75

No contest there.

Re: Amazon in Australia

My book is listed as unavailable in Australia, which is dissapointing because I wanted to sell it to my audience mostly in Australia.
The shipping from the US is very expensive.

 

Hope CS gets put in Australia soon!
