Amazon tells Australian retailers to prepare for orders from Thursday: sources

November 22, 2017

By Byron Kaye

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Inc has told its Australian sellers to be ready to take orders on Nov. 23, according to a retailer, the first time the global retail juggernaut has given a start date for doing business in the world No. 12 economy.

Australia has long been home to Amazon-registered sellers, but until now they had been limited to sending goods offshore since the $550-billion company did not have any warehouse in the country of 24 million people. This also meant Australians had to wait long and pay sizable shipping costs for deliveries.

Amazon has, however, set up a distribution warehouse in Melbourne city, on the country's east coast where four-fifths of the population live, and logistics analysts say this will help cut sometimes open-ended delivery times to one or two days.

"There's a trial starting tomorrow at 2:00 p.m., and (Amazon) is saying that you need to be prepared to receive orders from that point on," Adam Mills, founder of child internet monitor provider KoalaSafe Inc - an Amazon-registered seller, told Reuters by telephone on Wednesday.
