I've only used Amazon US before. I've been researching book prices - adding books to shopping carts, checking the shipping, GST, exchange rate, discounts, etc. to find the best price. During that I saw an ad for 'Free Shipping' at Amazon AU…
Their checkout showed $3 shipping, not $0 as advertised. So I checked why. One book is from a USA seller who has added $3 shipping. (So much for it being amazon AU, and forget the free shipping too.) But then I also noticed most of my books are from 'Book Depository UK'.
I only went to Amazon AU thinking it's the Australian version, so I won't pay GST, won't be converting currencies, worrying about customs values, etc. But now there's USA and UK sellers on there!?
So am I seeing Australian stock on Amazon AU, in Australian dollars, or are the goods on Amazon AU coming from all over the planet and still attract GST?
