Shopping on Australian Online Shops and Ship to UAE

April 30, 2019

We are proud to announce, that Buyandship has launched a new warehouse! In addition to shopping from our US warehouse, UK warehouse, Japanese, China, and Korean warehouses, you can soon buy and ship purchases from Australian online-shops to our Australian warehouse! And we are here to show you what and where to shop in Australia, so you can save more money! We have listed below some tips you should consider when shopping on Australian websites.

1. Currency And Exchange Rate

To not fall into the money trap, you should keep an eye on currency and exchange rates. Exchange rate: AUD$1 is equivalent to AED 2.59. If the website doesn’t offer prices in your preferred currency, we advise you to use an exchange rate calculator before shopping online. You should also pay attention to any exchange fees that may be charged by the bank.

2. Time Difference

To not miss out on deals and sales, it’s important to keep the time difference in mind. Canberra’s, the capital of Australia, is 6 hours ahead of UAE. But they also have summer and winter time, so Google will be your good friend in time difference matters.

3. Australian Discount Days

Mark two major Australian sales days in your calendar; one of them happens in June but the even bigger one are the BOXING DAY SALES on 26th of December! Keep up to date on our Buyandship Discount Page,and like our Facebook Pageand never miss out on any deals and sales!

4. Free Shipping in Australia

Australia offers higher shipping fees even if delivering nationally. The ranges are from standard AUD$5 up to AUD$15 shipping fees! But often online shops offer Free Shipping when you purchase a certain amount, so always check their Shipping options.

5. Australian warehouse address

You will find the address listed under My Account>> Overseas Warehouse Address, where the other addresses are listed as well. We have shown an example of how to fill in the address below. Please don’t forget to add your Buyandship User ID! Additionally, pay attention to the Postcode “2211” of the warehouse address, as many websites give options to choose between “Padstow” and “Padstow Heights”, remember that the correct answer should be “Padstow”!

6. Payment Options

Most of the Australian online shops accept credit cards, without any restrictions. If you are unable to pay by credit card, many shops also accept paments through Paypal.

7. Declaration of your shipment

It will be the same procedure as with other declarations. As soon as online shopping website has sent out your purchase, please use the provided tracking number to declare your parcel at your Buyandship account. The main courier companies are Australia Post、TNT、Fastway、StarTrack and so on.
