Thread: amazon.com.au

  1. #1

    Default amazon.com.au

    I was browsing through some DVDs there and any title that "Ships from and sold by Amazon AU" cannot be delivered to New Zealand. So we can buy from .ca, .com, .uk, .de, etc but not from across the pond

    Looks like there's lot of unsatisfied customers with .au https://www.productreview.com.au/p/amazon.html

    Good grief.

    So, the only region that shares our (totally unwanted and inconvenient) DVD region code is Australia, and it's the one zone that you can't get a DVD from.
    Sounds about right. Maximum inconvenience. Got to remember, the customer is a pain in the A, and it is the role of all in the distro chain to mess with you.

    The irony is that all the other Amazon stores will ship any DVD to NZ.. I've bought them from the US and UK stores.

    Even ordering from the German site is easier, it's crazy! I got the OZ only DVD I wanted from EzyDVD, several bucks cheaper than what AmazonAU were selling it for.

    I just ordered a new handheld GPS from Amazon.com as it is around $160 cheaper than anywhere else I can buy it from.

    You could have got it from me ... an as-new Garmin GPSII with a reserve of $30 didn't get more than a couple of tyre kicker nibbles. Still available if anyone wants a stand by.

    Easy enough to reprogram, I just did that with an older Philips - just so I could play a Region 4 DVD.

    Bugger. I just bought husband a new Navman, well a almost unused one off Trademe.

    His old one was too old, battery stuffed and old maps, so not worth swapping the batter this time round, I got it for $45.

    I had a look at the address that Beav gave in his original post. There were a lot of terrible reviews.
