Amazon opened for business in Australia today, offering millions of products previously not available here for local delivery.
The products are listed across 23 categories, including clothing and shoes, video games, consumer electronics, tools, toys, home improvement, beauty products, and for the first time Amazon’s Fire TV Stick.
Kindle e-readers are on sale, from the cheapest at $109 to the Kindle Paperwhite from $179 and the all-new Kindle Oasis from $389.
Then there’s up to 30% off on select toys, including Barbie, Batman, Hot Wheels, Disney Cars, Fisher-Price, Thomas the Tank Engine, and board games.
However, searches the new Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, which should have been on sale for the first time to Amazon Australian customers for $69, bring up only books. The streaming media player provides fast access to thousands of movies, TV shows, apps, and games.
One-month supply packs of Huggies nappies are going for $65 with free shipping.
Among the products now available are some household groceries, of the non-perishable kind, normally only found in supermarkets and corner stores, as this screenshot shows:
