Amazon might be the world's largest online marketplace, but its Australian storefront still has meagre offerings. Yet the Australian inventory is gradually increasing, meaning there's always a great bargain to be found.
And with the Prime service now available in Australia, shopping on Amazon can save you plenty. There's a whole load of perks that come with being a Prime member, including early access to a lot of Lightning Deals as well as the ability to participate in Amazon's annual members-only Prime Day sales.
Unfortunately, GST being applied to all purchased goods shipped to Australia means that we're no longer able to import goods from the other Amazon sites, especially from the US version. In lieu of that, Amazon Australia has set up a ‘global store’ option which offers millions of products that were previously available on amazon.com.
