If it came through it would stuff most of us that live in the bush. Not only are a lot of TFs not sold in this county but a helluva lot that are don't appear in a 500km radius of remote rural areas. And Aussie divisions of companies like TRU, Myer and the like actually charge MORE to ship goods domestically then foreign companies to ship internationally.

Case in point, it was going to cost more in postage to me to have TRU ship CW Computron from Melb that HLJ were charging to ship me UW Computron from Japan! it's why I just left it and hoped to find one on a shelf on my yearly trip to the big city (which luckily I did)

I just found it by searching google for "herald sun gst". Worked for me.

But yeah, I've got one major purchase to make and get into the country before this comes in. Don't want to risk getting slapped another $60 on top of what it will cost me.

Ah yes, searching google brings up the article. Wonder if that is a way around the blasted premium articles all the time.

Anyway, Gerry is a money hungry (can't say what I want but you know). They fail to see that alot of what is purchased online is items we can't buy locally. Can keep going around in circles with this discussion.

Update: Looks like eBay is probably going to geoblock all Aussie buyers and stop them from buying from non-Aussie sellers.
Way to cut us off from the rest of the world AU government, this wont be the last online retailer that just refuses to sell to us rather then comply with this BS.

Not sure how this will affect postage forwarders but looks like the ones based in other countries will be making a lot more money soon enough
