          @Computer Alliance: So Looks like at least most, and maybe all of our gear is now listed as ebayPlus available.

          Sounds like a deal to me, sign up before ordering and I would be interested it hear how it goes for people. The $30 they are charging for the full year would be covered in just 2 orders from us alone, so if you buy much at all form eBay probably worth keeping it for the full year.

      At least the $15 is kinda justified by courier delivery.

      We were considering it, but decided against local pickup.

      I won't go into all the reasons but I will say partly its about logistics (we have a big warehouse a few suburbs over at Salisbury not open to the public), space and congestion in the retail area (esp this time of year!), space constraints in warehouse at Mt Gravatt to put stuff aside rather than pack/ship immediately, and fraud/security issues (lose seller protection on PayPal for pickups - we have to ship to the approved order address).

          @Craysee: Bitcoin is in a bear market and until it can break it's descending trendline, it's not a great buy. Wait until 5kusd to buy then wait two days and cash in above 6kusd if your after quick money. Bitcoin only swings up violently after pullbacks when in a bull market or when it is reaching a bottom. There is a clear descending triangle with a triple bottom in the 6kusd range so I would be extremely suprised if Bitcoin doesnt continue to drop in price to at least 5k, even 3k and 1300 is on the table if panic sellers come out to play….

    Not impressed, Computer Alliance prices are already 10-20% more than every other store. Look at graphics cards for example.

    Without fail, they are overpriced insanely over every other store.

    They once used to be good but now just overpriced to the point where a 15% doesn't even matter. And there's an absolute bull $15 shipping charge.

    Back 4 years ago this would have been deal of the century. This store has jacked prices 20%

    • +7 votes

      To be fair, $15 to ship a box of computer parts isn't extortionate. Ever tried to send a small bag to someone at AusPost? It'll run you around $15 tracked, or more.

      Businesses get discounts, but it's not a very large discount.

      You're just used of the other sellers factoring shipping into the buy it now cost.

      You pay for it either way.

      The price of the stock on the other hand, I won't argue there; but also remember CA don't have the buying power MSY, Futu, PC Byte, etc have. I used to run a computer business. Back then, I couldn't buy stock from my suppliers even at MSY's retail price. It's a tough game.

      • -1 vote

        That is completely not the point. You are attacking a strawman.

        I am also an eBay seller. Yes, shipping is factored into the Buy It Now price. So all that matters is the total price. When you already have the most expensive price, adding extra $15 is just an insult to injury.

        I'm not saying its bull for each item to cost $15 shipping (which it is by the way). I'm saying the cost overall is bull.

        CA used to have cheaper stock, but now are the most expensive in Australia. This is OzBargain, isn't it? How do operating costs have anything to do with whether we should find something a good deal when there are many other stores that offer less and have to deal with the same stock costs. I'm not talking MSY either I'm talking every store in goddamn Australia.

        It makes me wonder, if they can charge this much on both website and eBay, are they running multiple stores on eBay? They've jacked EVERYTHING, even considering tech is supposed to get cheaper?

        BTW it is actually not a good thing that their eBay store is same price as website (both being most expensive in Australia). That means they get charged eBay fees but don't pass on the discount on their website. This seems a bit strange, doesn't it? This would be a good thing if prices are reasonable, but it is definitely bad if they are not.

          You may want to read this and this. You're stating incorrect information in regards to shipping.

        •  

          @tightarse:

          It doesn't matter that web site prices are synced to eBay if you already have the most expensive prices in Australia, with relatively recent jacked up prices despite global price drops of old technology. This would only be a good thing if you had reasonable prices in the first place.

          And like I said, $15 on top of already expensive prices is the main gripe, irregardless of whether its per order, not the fact that shipping price might actually cost $15. This is eBay where only total cost matters.

          You can neg but it doesn't change the FACT there is only a single item (Ryzen 2700x) or a couple that we can count on hand that aren't the most expensive in Australia. This is why NO deals are being posted in the comments except surprises about overpricing

          @takutox:

          There are some good deals among the mix, not every item is going to be a bargain and the best price in Australia, but that is what all ozbargains should already know - make sure to do research before buying anything. They have not 'jacked everything' as you claim.

          Jacking = mass rising prices a few days before a sale. I can't see any evidence of CA mass raising all their prices in preparation for this sale.

          And like I said, $15 on top of already expensive prices is the main gripe

          Noticed that there are many items with free postage e.g. the WD reds. The 4TB will be $152 after discount, much cheaper than elsewhere.

          About the flat rate of postage, its probably not ideal if you were only buying 1 thermal compound, but if you were buying multiple big items, it probably works out to be a better deal than sellers who factor postage costs into all buy-it-now-prices.

        •  

          @lyl:

          No doubt there are some good deals among the mix. There are also good deals among HN , Bing LEe or TGG sales, as well as the stores that jack for the 20%.

          That doesn't mean that the overall prices have not been jacked, most of the changes coincidentally coming within the last week or two with an 'excuse'.

          You can always find a couple items in the mix that are slightly cheaper than other places.

          Let that sink for a while. 15% off their store compared to other stores without any discount whatsoever is still more expensive in 99% of cases.

          There are like 3 deals posted on this page from 6000 clicks.

          Your claims are utter rubbish, where is the proof that CA are more expensive than every other computer store in Australia? They're a competitor to you because this is the only explanation for the way you are behaving. I've purchased plenty from them recently and their prices are not far from MSY/Umart pricing and they can deliver often same day.

          It makes me wonder, if they can charge this much on both website and eBay, are they running multiple stores on eBay? They've jacked EVERYTHING, even considering tech is supposed to get cheaper?

          You're the guy saying he runs an ebay store so surely you can find this other secret store.

      Their $15 shipping doesn't change if you order more than one item, which isnt too bad if you factor in that some of their other stuff isn't marked up like other sellers on eBay.

      • +22 votes

        $15 is a flat fee per order, not per item, and everything is shipped to your door and requires a signature for verification. We lose money overall on freight (think about what an empty case to outback WA costs to ship from Brisbane!!) but decided that was fine to keep it simple.

        As a tip while I'm on it, for a little faster delivery time for bulky orders interstate, try shipping to a business/work address and include the business name in the ship to address — that way we use a commercial courier like Startrack Express where if it looks like a residential address we would be more likely use Aus Post / eParcel.

        We started using eParcel because they can take to the post office for collection if no one is available to sign at a residential address, but they are often a day or so slower than our other couriers. We mainly use Startrack Premium (air) for the small stuff to any address as they can also drop at a post office and are usually overnight.

        For SE Qld we tend to use Couriers Please for nearly everything, as they are very quick, often same day, but also a issue if no one if home (you contact them to arrange a 2nd delivery attempt - if you know you won't be home let us know and we sill ship Aus Post). We don't use them interstate because we find other options offer a better quality service. We always get a few questions about Fastways as well. They were the lowest cost option for us for a while, but we stopped using them. I have heard they do well down south but in our area, better options are available.

          Is it possible to request Couriers Please for deliveries to the Northern Rivers since we're in the SE QLD service area? AP is unfortunately slower for me than if it came out of Sydney and it would help retain the advantage of buying local.

          @ethan961: I grew up just south of the border there and have used Couriers Please to ship to my parents in the area. We don't use them regularly to the northern rivers as there are some areas they don't cover well, but if you know your local guy there is fine then make a note requesting it ship by them and most likely it will go out that way (we never 100% promise a particular shipping method) — make sure someone is at the address to sign though.

      Both Logitech MX 2S mice are about $20 above MSRP/other sellers like jb hifi/officeworks. 15% off still puts them above MSRP. Add the $15 shipping on top, they probably got the highest price for them in the whole Australia.

        Thats not one we do in volume, and the price isn't the cheapest and not intended to be, but its still not bad! We look to be well under most stores

        Take a look at http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=910-005156&... and http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=910-005142&...

        You might not be aware that Logitech put up most of their prices a while back and a few stores have not updated their whole range yet - some will be pricing off old stock. eg the version we sell a $89 now we were selling for $69 earlier in the year. JB do have a very good price, got me wondering if Logitech are doing something special for them or if they are just using the old price….. we tend to drop brands who won't give us a competitive price.

        The $15 flat freight is in part there to help cover our real cost for small items (most ship Startrack Premium with signature - look up the costs!!!), and to subsidize and provide a discount for larger, hopefully higher value items where the actual freight cost is much higher.

        We don't have the capacity to process a large number of micro sales efficiently, and the freight price reflects that but for items like this we want to be competitive enough where if you buy say a complete system from us, and want that particular mouse, then its easy to just add the mouse on the order at no extra freight cost. In addition, from time to time we do have the best price anywhere on mice and other peripherals.

          Don't think they jacked that price for the eBay 11% sitewide.

The ebay sitewide was also an TA/Ozb exclusive, so doubt CA had any information regarding the upcoming deal on 08-Jun when the price was updated.

Or when memory and storage prices were really high (still very high at the moment), due to increased demand and lower supply from manufacturing issues/changes.

          @takutox:

          Find it strange that you mentioned GPUs specifically as an example. Lots of tech prices have gone up over the last 1-2 years due to supply/demand, with GPUs being the worse of them all, and stuff like RAM not far behind.

          Remember the days where you could get a 1080 locally for around 600? You'd think that 12 months later they'd be something like $500 with the new releases, but they're still currently selling for around $800 everywhere thanks to mining.

          Also jacking = Mass raising of prices specifically before a sale. I can't find evidence of CA doing that.

        •  

          @takutox:
          Firstly, I was simply pointing out that your comment about pc components decreasing over time is not true. Even disregarding GPUs, other components such as memory have dramatically increased over time.
          Example: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/p6RFf7/corsair-memory-cm...

          Secondly, a lot of the components including GPUs available from this deal are the cheapest offerings in Australia, so again I don't know what you're talking about.

        • +2 votes

          @mb3: Manufacturers also just like changing their pricing at a strategic level from time to time, and there is also the influence of one off deals - buying millions of $ of related SKUs in one hit after negotiation vrs just topping up to keep a few in stock, or grabbing a few from a alternate supplied when stock is low at distribution has short term impact (though we don't always increase in those circumstances, just take the hit till we do the next volume buy if ones expected)

          The AUD is the other big factor over the longer term - and some disties adjust almost immediately to any fall. I was surprised myself a while back, was looking at a nice system a regular bought back when the AUD was at $1.10 as they wanted something at a comparable quality with updated gear to replace it. They ended up going with something about the same price as their older system and it was a significant upgrade, but it was also significantly below the original relative to other gear available now ie more mid range than top end.

          It creeps up on your, but understand IT gear is essentially priced on USD so a video card that costs say $500 US (lets assume adjusted for GST, etc) you might have bought a while back at more like say $450 AUD. Today a card also sells for $500 US that translates to more like $650 - a 40+% increase. Thats the main part of the reason why prices feel high for some people replacing machines from years back - ignoring short term fluctuations like the crypotmining induced spikes, we have seen a 40% underlying increase since the $ started dropping back, which from memory was around 2013/2014 - the timeframe for which some people are now replacing their machines.

          The updated gear still means its a upgrade compare dot older models, but where in past past you might have looked at say top end like say a a 1080ti, you find yourself looking at something a couple of notches down, a 1060 or 1070 - still a upgrade on say you old 780 but still doesn't feel quite right.

          @Computer Alliance:
          Exactly. I mean, even without considering the USD/AUD exchange rate though, some components have still increased significantly over time. The link I posted before, but in the US: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/p6RFf7/corsair-memory-cmk16...

          We sold out late last week of that model, hence none listed on on our eBay store to buy at any price and none on our web site. So 1st point I suppose, it hasn't been increased to sell them off at a higher price given we have none to sell!!! As it so happens, our purchasing guys have ordered more, and gone through to adjust prices for the new stock related to that PO, across a number of models and brands actually. Costs don't always stay the same or reduce. We did increase the price for the new stock on that model, but by the looks, only that model for now in that MSI range

          Have a look at MSI notebooks in stock at similar prices. The closest in price that you can actually buy is a GS73 at $3399. Turns out we are nearly out of stock and the price may change when we order more, but for now at least I can tell you the price has not changed since it was originally listed. Look further to the closest priced GS65 in stock is the one at $2799. Same thing, no price change since the original listing. A lot of those MSIs might change with the next big batch as we are running low on many SKUs, but you can at least see there has been no mass increase of prices, or we are just terrible at price gouging by only increasing price on a model not in stock!

          While taking a look at recent POs, I see our guys ordered a ton of HDDs on Friday as well. Some didn't change in price, but some went down, and those silly guys actually decreased the retail price just before the sale (shock horror!!!) eg retail price on the ever popular 8TB WD Red was $378, reduced to $359 yesterday. Various others have also been dropped. Had a quick look and see MSY have them for $354 though hopefully no one would argue that our ability to swap out under warranty years after the sale isn't worth the extra $5! More so, if we kept the old price, we would still be selling at $321 after coupon, well below anyone else anyway, so why did we reduce the price?!!!

          @takutox: I'm not sure what you're talking about, as the prices of most high-end GPUs around the world are more expensive now than this time last year.

        •  

          @mb3:

          GPUs have decreased as of late due to reduced demand for mining. They might be more expensive than last year, but that doesn't change the fact that the trend is down.

          That's why I already said 'even GPUs'

          Yes, tech prices do change - they go down over time.

          ..

          They might be more expensive than last year

          @takutox: This is true. We just did a deal on a couple of SKUs in mid range cards at the best price we have seen since last year - don't think they are up yet and stock probably won't be in till Tuesday or so, but will be up for the ebay deal.

          Even.

          Even.

          Read, please.

          It's like, the one thing I have already taken into account and countered with in advance, people still want to quote and talk about.

          GPUS did go up in price since last year.

          However, GPUs have been going down in price for the last 2 months GLOBALLY due to reduced demand for mining, where Computer Alliance have increased or kept the same.

          IT DOES NOT MATTER that the price was higher than last year. IT IS AN EXCEPTION TO THE RULE, WHICH IS NOT EVEN AN EXCEPTION CONSIDERING PRICES HAVE DECREASED DUE TO LESS MINING PROFITS AND NEW CARDS LAUNCHING.

          Despite GPU prices decreasing, this is not reflected at all (and even reverse) with CA.

          sheesh

          Where is this reduced demand from mining? GPUs have been reduced a little recently because of the new cards coming out and stocks are running low of some models which have been cleared out.

          What about SSD's?
          What about RAM?

          These have increased in price compared to years earlier.

          Despite GPU prices decreasing, this is not reflected at all (and even reverse) with CA.

          I've purchased GPUs from CA and they were priced as good as MSY and Umart. Prices change all the time.

        Both Logitech MX 2S mice are about $20 above MSRP/other sellers like jb hifi/officeworks. 15% still puts them above MSRP. Add the $15 shipping on top, they probably got the highest price for them in the whole Australia.

          Why do you keep reposting this? You just posted this above. The $15 shipping is per order as well.

          Isn't the RRP for the regular 2S $149. Why are you confusing the recommended retail price with what other sellers are selling this for?

      To reassure people, I can tell you we directly sync our ship web site and prices to the eBay store. We haven't even built an interface to allow for differing prices. eBays a small part of our turnover, so it would be rather foolish to change our company wide prices just for a ebay sale!

      We don't have everything on our main store up on eBay — the underlying listing algorithm only lists items we have in stock, but there will also be some items in stock on our company site not on ebay at any given time. Our system factors in a buffer level there so its less likely we run out of stock for our main operation. eg say we sell sell 20 a day of a certain SSD we use for our system builds and have only 100 in stock. We might list say 60 automatically on eBay to allow for 2 days supply in shop and give us time to get more in — and make sure production doesn't get held up. There will also be the occasional product we pull off eBay during coupon periods for other reasons - where $ losses are too high to sell at our shop price on eBay because of the extra fees, or where there are shortages - but either circumstance is quite rare and I note we leave a lot up that will be selling below volume distributor pricing

      Its normal to be changing prices most days in retail as costs and inventory levels change, that is just part of doing business and if you don't keep your eye on pricing, you won't last long in this industry. People here tend to look at a particular product or brand they personally are interested in that might go up a bit on a given day and assume everything went up. I have seen that is true for some IT stores listing on ebay so i understand the assumption, but its not true for us - so before jumping to conclusions try checking a broad range of product and if anything you will find more has gone down recently than up.

      I know some stores intentionally keep prices higher on eBay, which I think is perfectly reasonable as long as they are up front about it. Raising prices for short periods just before or during "sales" on the other hand, to drop back afterwards, is misleading and illegal. Perhaps you should support a store that is up front with customers and makes every effort not to be misleading?

          Really? You don't increase prices for eBay sales. So a 8700K was listed for $519 the other day, it was in my cart to buy, got busy with work and left it till I got home, I guess it's sheer coincidence it's was raised to $549 in the next few hours after a 10% coupon was activated. Right.

        Hi Adam,

        Is there any chance the Crucial SSD drives could be added to the ebay store?

        • +1 vote

          Not a single SKU currently in stock of those, but some are on order and will automatically go up when they come into stock - probably early next week
