When Will Amazon Retail Launch In Australia?
In the retail world, it's the question on everyone's lips. With November being a bumper month of retail sales in Australia (and worldwide), speculation was rife that Amazon Australia retail would launch on or before Black Friday 2017 - well, that didn't happen. (Sob) But, we're holding out hope that they'll kick things off in time to help us out with our Christmas shopping.
What Can We Expect When Amazon Retail Arrives In Australia?
Well they don't call it 'The Everything Store' for nothing. We'll see cracking prices loads of goodies, with a focus on local goods, and fast local delivery. At least 500 sellers will be operational on Amazon Australia from day one, with items such as sporting goods, toys and electronics featuring prominently.
And it gets better.
Amazon Prime is a likely offering. It's a paid membership service that will could guarantee quick, free, same-day, or even one-hour delivery of certain items. It also gives members unlimited movie streaming. Yaass!
Amazon Marketplace will be able to to be used as a selling platform by anyone.
Amazon Fresh could launch in Australia in conjunction with the main website. It means Aussies would be able to buy fresh food and groceries through the site.
What Can We Buy From Amazon Australia Now?
