Actually I know that they successfully ship to China although in ordering and the only complaint that I heard of is that in ordering something requiring a plug, the customers forget that in North America, we use 115v where I'm China they use 220v. You shouldn't have any problems ordering from Amazon. I know China is a ways from Australia but still crossing the pacific so you shouldn't have an issue.

I don't see any problems as I'm sure Amazon are just as huge in Australia as most other places worldwide where shopping is available. after all Amazon are a. Com business and having had no problems in the past in I'm sure Amazon have their customers at heart and would never let them down

Gordon, I have received goods from Australia, Israel, Italy & England through Amazon and never had any issues. .... I have never sent any goods directly from Amazon to anywhere else so I am unable to answer your question fully. My advice would be to research the seller first, if it is fulfilled by Amazon I would be confident in the order, make sure you check shipping prices & options ;)

I purchased a car seat as a new baby gift for someone in Australia. . I logged on to my Amazon account in the UK..I had no problem but I do believe there was a small charge for using American dollars..I did the same thing a few years ago when I sent an Amazon card to someone in London.. Again, no problem except for the small currency charge.

I ship to the UK and Australia all the time. I ship via the USPS and never have problems getting items through Customs. I think Amazon uses UPS, if so, shipping is not problem, duty fees and custom holds are the only problem.

Hi Gordon;
I am so sorry that I cannot answer your question. I live in the Florida, USA. I have had no problems with Amazon's shipping. Amazon has always been very dependable, we're shipping arriving on time.

I can only add that's I've ordered things from UK and China - and was surprised at how long it took, but I was very satisfied with my purchases. Some "marketplaces", or independent sellers, do not ship internationally, and it will pop up before you pay. Once I mistakenly logged onto Amazon Canada (.ca) and was about to order an unusual sale item - at first it went through, then I got a cancellation within a few hours.

You should be fine. Amazon packages can be tracked so if it doesn't arrive, you can let them know and get the issue resolved. However, I'd first check to see what their policies are about international shipping. I imagine you can google their policies or contact their customer service department to find out.

I just started buying from Amazon the last year. They are pretty good but it's these middlemen from China u have to watch. I have not gotten several shirts from them and they claim they were sent. Some provide no tracking number because they claim it would raise the shipping costs. I was reimbursed for the shirts but I really wanted those shirts. I ordered 1 shirt from Amazon in February and I still have not received it even tho they claimed they sent it a second time. That second time was a month ago and have not received it so I filed an A-Z claim. I'm doing battle with them again with another Chinese middleman company for the same issue. Amazon is good but be wary of these Chinese middleman companies. I will not be purchasing anything else from these unnamed companies on Amazon anymore. They can't be depended on. Good luck!!

About Australia I have no idea,but I have friends in Europe and families in Brasil. I'm pretty sure that if Amazon approve the transaction to another country you will have no problem. I never had a problem with Amazon's international transaction.

I'm in Texas, so I have no experience shipping to Australia But if any company can do it or has done it, it will be Amazon, I've never had a problem ordering and receiving or Returning Items from Amazon.com, however, only about 50% or less of the items listed are actually in the Amazon warehouses, It depends on the item and the actual Seller as in many cases(Amazon is only the Host) and relays your Order to the listed Seller for shipment. All Items I have ordered from Amazon arrive on time and in good condition. Make sure you use Amazon.com as this is the main site.

There is some issues with delivering to Australia. It depends on the item and the actual seller (Amazon is only the hoste) and sometimes it's very much a buyer be ware situation as you never really know who the actual seller is. But to answer your question YES there are some issues with them not shipping to us Aussies

I would look at this page at the top where it says " Ordering". https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_gt2_shp_ishp?nodeId=596184 I have no personal opinion on it, but I do know they have great customer service, and if you call ahead they can help you.

Go to Amazon directly through their Customer Service. Some items might not be shipped to Australia or outside the U.S. But I cannot see any problems shipping there from Amazon.

This company have problems shipping any orders all over the world. Avoid purchasing anything, if you do receive the items you will be extremely disappointed due to the clothes looking nothing like the pictures advertised and poor cheap nasty materials.
