Amazon.com has finally opened their Australian online site. The store claims to stock over two million titles including Australian best sellers and new releases. With the Australian store’s prices slightly higher than the US store – even considering the currency exchange rate (my books are anyway), will Australians embrace the new offering or will they continue using the US store?
Update: The prices vary significantly. Some are slightly lower (within currency fluctuation margin of error) whereas others are up to 25% higher in the Australian store. Shop around.
