After missing their rumoured Black Friday launch, Amazon Australia has today gone live offering discounted goods in over 20 categories including Books, Music, Clothing & Accessories, Consumer Electronics and Kitchen ware.
All the orders will be fulfilled from Amazon’s fulfillment centre in Dandenong Victoria.
Amazon Prime hasn’t launched as yet, though Amazon expects it to launch here in mid-2018, but they are offering 1-day shipping to selected areas across Australia. Amazon has said that ‘customers can enjoy free delivery on eligible orders above $49 that are sold by Amazon’. Anyone interested in pre-registering for Prime can head over to amazon.com.au/Prime.
The Amazon experience in Australia will improve said Rocco Braeuniger, Country Manager of Amazon Australia :
Over time, we will create thousands of new jobs and invest hundreds of millions of dollars in Australia. The result will be an ever-improving customer experience driven by the regular introduction of new products and services that we hope customers will love.
