Amazon shipping toys to Australia!

Post by Fresh on Thu Aug 02, 2012 8:00 am

Hey guys,
I was on the AFB forum and someone there mentioned Amazon were shipping some toy lines to Australia now.

I was able to place an order for WWE and Starwars figures but they wouldn't ship Thundercats or Dark Knight Rises figures to Australia.

This is awesome as they have some really cheap prices!

I recently ordered the TMNT Retro-Classics through Amazon US and I'm eagerly awaiting their arrival.

They ended up being just under $20.00 each, which seems pretty reasonable as most 6" scale action figures in Australia seem to retail for that much, if not more. I'll definitely be looking to purchase more toys through Amazon.

Amazon been available to Australia for quite sometime.

If it sold by Amazon it depends on what settings Amazon sets for each item or if it's available from multipil sellers it's usually up to the the Sellers Amazon settings. (I'm on Amazon USA and ship everywhere. I shipped maybe 1-2 things a month to AU) Amazon is just making there big push in Australia so you might have more options soon.

When you are looking at the Items and see the "Seller Information" Under the item each seller will have a clickable link if the have a "International & domestic shipping rates" tab they ship internationally. Clicking on the tab should give you the costs of shipping with a bit of scrolling. That way you can see what rates you will be charged before going thru the checkout process.

Amazon allows you to set up either a per Item rate or Per pound rate, sometimes with a base rate per shipment. Most set the rates to some stupid and too high, some screw it up and you can get a bargin on shipping.

There is also the new website tarazz.com.au which lets you buy stuff from walmart. You can get lego and girls toys but I havent seen any action figures yet.

The shipping for Tarazz is pretty high.

A $20.00 Lego set was going to cost another $20.00 to ship. Which then makes it just as expensive as in Australian stores.

When is someone going to perfect teleportation technology?
