Australians will now be able to shop from an increased selection of Amazon's global website in addition to the local online store. The giant online retailer gave in to pressure from local shoppers and the government, and will open up access to half a billion products from its global store today. "As a result of customer feedback, from November 22, Amazon customers will be able to ship eligible items from amazon.com to Australian delivery addresses," a company spokesperson said in a statement. It follows GST changes introduced by the government on July 1 that levy a 10 percent tax on all low-value overseas purchases and businesses with a turnover of more than AU$75,000 from sales within Australia. Amazon brought in the block on shipping to Australians from its global store in July.
