The new Amazon Robotics fulfilment centre - the largest warehouse ever built in Australia- under construction in Kemp’s Creek, Western Sydney

If you’ve ever purchased something from eBay, Gumtree, Facebook marketplace or other online locations you’ve purchased second-hand hardware. It’s a big industry and will continue to grow as the need for quality goods grows. For a provider like Amazon to launch warehouse, offering second hand and open box gear is a big deal.

If you’re hunting a bargain, then the free delivery on eligible items (or Prime members) across a huge range of goodies including among other categories:

  • Electronics
  • Computers and Accessories
  • Video Games
  • Toys and Games

Versus private sale sites, buyers have the protection of quality checks conducted by Amazon. These ensure the goods are in working order and of appropriate quality to be sold by Amazon. These tests will give your product a rating from the four options: Acceptable, good, very good or like new with associated notes. It’s a great way to pick up goods cheaper than full retails and — it seems — with full disclosure.

Would you consider purchasing goods from Amazon Warehouse, or would you prefer to buy brand new?
