Online shopping in Australia

Australia is a huge country and you can find yourself a long way from the shops.
Fortunately the internet has made life easier and nowadays just about anything you want is available online; cheap flights, flowers, secondhand cars, dirty videos, distance higher education courses, didgeridoos and baby sitters!

If you are new to online shopping, or are a bit nervous about it, be assured that online merchants are bound by the same consumer legislation as normal shops. Online shopping should be just as safe as buying from any other shop, and is often cheaper as merchants can keep their overheads down renting less shopspace.
Just take a few precautions that are recommended by www.accc.gov.au ( Australian Consumer Affairs);

1. Do you know who you are dealing with? Does the site list contact details like phone number, address, ABN?
2. Do you know exactly what you are paying? Is the price in U$ or AU$, are there shipping, handling or other fees? Taxes or import duties?
3. The site should have a secure payment facility, this is indicated by a small padlock in the right hand bottom corner of your screen, and usually their web adress then starts with htpps://
4. Make sure you know what the delivery time will be.
5. The site should list the warranty, exchange and refund policy.

Happy shopping!
