  • Olli Top 10 Forum Poster Thursday, September 15, 2011 11:24 PM Reply
    DX released today new blog posting about US/UK warehouses. It contains nothing new info but they announced that they are making Australia warehouse:

    ... we currently have a AU warehouse in progress to better serve our Australian customers ...

    Probably NSW where the 'Stone Bridge Group' is located.
    Any AU warehouse is ok by me... I can just about throw a cricket ball from here in NZ to there....

    Hope they make an Canadian warehouse.. receiving product within five days, this would be a dream coming reality.

    it’s called the present.

    You should add a note to your warehouse stock tool saying that if you get an error like "product not found" then that means the item is not in stock.
    Yes, I tried that. But fetching that data for every product would took very long. I asked staff to make an API for easier access to product availability info but nothing now.

    Or rewrite the code because as it is now it's not working properly.
    What part do you think is not working properly?

    Did you by the way get anything for writing it in the first place?
    No, I didn´t get anything. Adding referral links to the product URLs would nice , maybe you could ask staff am I allowed to do so?

    DX blogged their own tool as well, so if yours is discontinued I will update the thread with theirs.
    It would be more nice to have both links there, because some users may want to use my page currently.

    I'm curious how they can still offer free shipping.

    Interstate postage is cheaper than international, but not by a lot and quickly goes up with weight.

    The packages will still be delivered via the regular Australia Post service?

    Will local GST taxes be added on?

    Omgg! This means we're gonna get much faster postage? :DDD I don't mind paying a little more for postage! local postage is only like $5
    I looked at the US and UK warehouses, their postage is free though!

    local postage is only like $5

    On what planet?

    "Local" postage here peaks at around $8 close to the max weight of 20KG (not everyone is buying just one little piggy light), but that is ONLY IF you are posting to a destination within the same state (else the price rapidly goes up) AND you are within what is considered the Metropolitan part of that same state (else the costs go up again based on distance and weight increments).


    Prices quickly go up when posting between states....

    A package close to the max weight from Sydney (NSW) to Melbourne (Victoria) via regular mail costs $27.65.
    The same via express post costs $93.20

    The very same package to go to Ballarat instead of Melbourne, would cost $28.55 regular or $100.65 for express post.


    The same package instead to Perth (Western Australia), would cost $59.15 regular or $204.15 for express post.

    I looked at the US and UK warehouses, their postage is free though!

    I'm guessing it will be free here too (otherwise I would probably just continue to buy from HK as before, depending on how much the increased added cost is), but I'm just curious how the free postage is possible.
