How many products will Amazon sell?

In a previous announcement, Amazon stated it would be selling "hundreds of thousands of products" at launch. This seemed unusually high for a single warehouse.

Today, Braeuniger confirmed Amazon will be launching a marketplace for third parties to sell through in addition to its own warehouse offerings. In other words, many of the products available on Amazon will come in the form of sales portals to other Australian retailers, similar to how eBay works today.

Amazon ' s "soft launch " of its Australian retail offering proved to be an anti-climax. While Amazon .com.au has long been a hub for Kindles and ebooks, the new version of the site expected to launch Still, there has been very little in the way of official details from Amazon on its local offering.

Will Amazon's international sites be blocked?

Braeuniger did not say whether Amazon's international sites would be subject to geo-blocking to force Australian customers onto the local platform. However, he did confirm that local sellers will be given the opportunity to reach global customers. This suggests that geo-blocking will not be implemented.

What about faulty products?

As expected, Amazon will be handling returns locally, as per Australian Consumer Law. This means when something goes wrong, you will be able to contact Amazon instead of relying on the seller.

How much will it cost participating businesses?

Selling on Amazon Australia marketplace will reportedly cost AU$49.95 per month, plus six to 15% of completed sales. When you consider the customer reach Amazon provides, this sounds pretty reasonable.
