TRANSFORMERS DEALER GUIDE
(Ebay Page)

This listing should not be considered as a guarantee of reliability.  These are online stores or dealers in Transformers stuff that are either located in Australia, or ship to Australia and are fairly well known. If you know of any that should be added, or removed, please email me.  As with any transaction, be aware of the risks before committing to the purchase, including payment procedures, stock availability and shipping options. If any of these links don't work, or a dealer no longer exists or sells Transformers stuff, please let me know.
This guide will only include foreign online stores that I believe ship to Australia.
None of the dealers listed here have paid to be advertised here - this dealer guide is for your benefit, not mine.  The order is mostly random here, with Australian dealers first.  To help out other fans who use this service, let me know if any details or dealers need to be added here.
If you want to know more about a dealer, email me.
Try finding a dealer who has free shipping for pre-orders or orders over a certain amount.  As with any purchase, look at a few places before spending your money, because some online stores take advantage of desperate fans who may have thought it was the only source for the item they are looking for.
More Transformers info and fan resources can be found on the Ozformers Resource Guide.

EBAY AUCTIONS

Ebay auction listings for Transformers in Australia - Ebay Australia.

Ebay auction listings for Transformers in England - Ebay UK.
Points to note with any ebay auction or buy-it-now:
- Look for other auctions with the same item to compare prices and shipping, to get the best deal.
- Make sure they ship world wide, or at least to where you are.
- Make sure they accept paypal, or what ever form of payment is easiest for you.
- Check their feedback number, preferably 50+ to show that they have been trading a while.
- Check their feedback percentage, preferably at least 98% positive, for reliability.
- Check to make sure the item is legitamate and not a knockoff or bootleg imitation, and in the condition you want it in (loose, MIB, MISB, etc).
- Don't ever rush into a purchase, especially an expensive one, no matter who may have recommended it. It is your decision and your responsibility.
The feedback system is there for others to know if you are reliable for what you are responsible for in the transaction. If a seller does the right thing and leaves you feedback for paying for the item, please do the right thing in return and leave feedback when the item is received.  If a seller refuses to give you feedback, despite you earning it by paying promptly, just don't give them feedback either, because they haven't been fair enough to earn it, and are only wanting a better score at your expense.
Ebay rules don't require you to notify the seller when you receive the item, but it is appreciated if you do.  Any disputes should be discussed before resorting to leaving negative feedback.
As of 13 June 2005 all items listed must include the GST component in the price of the item from the time it is listed, where GST is applicable. Sellers must not add GST on top of the final bidding price or 'Buy It Now' price once the item has been won or bought. Sales to overseas buyers are considered GST free.
