Amazon Australia is live, Prime to launch in mid

Retailers brace as Amazon launches in Australia

Categories now available include video games, consumer electronics, sports equipment, tools, home improvement products, toys, beauty products, clothing and shoes, as well as the traditional books, Kindles and other Amazon devices. Gartner research analyst Thomas O'Connor said that Amazon may not be able to provide all the products at a cheap price but would provide special discounts on some goods, and force existing Australian retailers to innovate to keep the customers loyal.

Furthermore, Aussie customers can also access Prime Video and Twitch Prime offerings from today.

"I've seen them rest on their laurels and continue to make fairly significant margins in the retail space and be comfortable to do that, and not really expect this was going to happen", he said.

"Focusing on customers and the long term are key principles in Amazon's approach to retailing", said Rocco Braeuniger, Country Manager, Amazon Australia.

In what is a move certain to scare local retailers, they're offering free delivery on orders over $49 with a one-day service in some areas.

"There is a massive opportunity for a differentiated experience".

Initial reports stated the natural disaster was a 5.1 magnitude, but has since been downgraded to a 4.4. Others commented that they had not felt a thing. "It was actually pretty scary and pretty surprising".

After months of hype, speculation, and delays, Amazon has finally launched its full Australian website, less than three weeks before Christmas. Amazon was meant to launch on November 24, this was meant to coincide with the U.S. black Friday spend-a-ton. experts in this sector have said that the launch can be prolonged up to next year.

One of Australia's leading retailers, Gerry Harvey of Harvey Norman, said he was not anxious about Amazon and warned consumers to beware of its promises to deliver before Christmas.
