Amazon Australia announced it was launching close to two years ago. Amazon announced it was planning to launch in Australia in April 2017 and officially came online in December 2017. In the 12 months to December 2017, it generated $17 million in revenue and posted an $8.9 million loss.
In this regard, is Amazon coming to Australia?
Amazon.com opened today in Australia, ending months of speculation. The American e-commerce giant has long sold Kindle books and other intangibles through its Australian website, but today it started taking orders for physical goods to be shipped from its suburban Melbourne warehouse.
Furthermore, is there an Amazon warehouse in Australia?
The very first Australian warehouse will be in the Pellicano M2 Industry Park - a location that provides easy access to the South Gippsland Highway, Monash Highway and Eastlink. Aussies can already buy Amazon products overseas and have them shipped to their doorsteps in weeks.
Does Amazon Australia use Australia Post?
Though Amazon takes responsibility for FBA shipping, its main delivery partner is government-run Australia Post. So far, Amazon has run its Australian business from a single warehouse outside Melbourne city, on the country's east coast where most of the population lives.
Is Amazon in Australia safe?
Yes, Amazon is largely trustworthy. Other sellers do their own shipping, but you should have some guarantee of satisfaction from Amazon: check customer ratings. There are occasionally scammers, using hacked accounts, or 'newly launched' shops.
