Australia Post’s New Service Will Make Online Shopping SO Much Easier
A dream come true for Aussie shoppers!
Most of us love to do a little online shop. There are so many perks – more variety, delivery to your door, the ease of being in your PJs. However, for those of us who shop from American stores, the postage can cost an arm and a leg. Or even worse – no shipping to Australia!
Luckily though, Australia Post have launched a new service called ShopMate that’s going to be a dream come true for Aussie online shoppers.
They’ve set up a warehouse in Oregon so Aussie shoppers can use a US address when checking out. The package will then be forwarded to their Australian address.
Parcel Post manager Kelly Heintz said “this should cut the annoying price difference suffered by Aussies who want to buy from their fave American stores.”
But how much will it cost? $24.95 a parcel with a weight rate of $5.95 per 500g. Still not the cheapest thing ever, but better than what a LOT of American sites are offering!
You can sign up for the service here.
