*** UPDATE Dec 2018: Australia has relaxed its restrictions on residents buying from Amazon.com. At the moment, you should be able to buy my books via the USA Amazon site, and have them shipped to you. This will be both quicker and cheaper than buying direct from me. I will leave this shop open for the time being though, just in case there are any problems again. The fact still remains (as described below) that if you find my books on Amazon.com.au, they will be very expensive and not sold by me - they are sold by third party sellers nothing to do with me. ***
Only available to residents of Australia
Residents of any other country: please use your local Amazon store to purchase the books. Any orders made on this page to be delivered to countries other than Australia will be refunded, minus a £3 admin fee.
The reason for the shop is this: Amazon Australia have started charging an import tax, and have prevented global Amazon sites delivering direct to Australia. Some enterprising people are arbitraging this fact, and are offering my book for sale on Amazon Australia at ridiculously inflated prices. If you order it, they will simply buy it from Amazon.com and ship it to you direct, making a huge markup in the meantime. To allow Australian residents to buy my book at RRP, I have set up this shop.
Prices in AUD
The books are priced in sterling, because I’m based in the UK. The Australian dollars conversion will be made automatically at checkout. At September 2018 the approximate $ amounts are:
Book 1: $36 (but it may be different on the day you check out - click here to find approximate rates for today)
Book 2: $45 (varies day to day)
Planner: $22 (varies day to day)
I can only ship up to 2kg (4.4lb) per order (all 3 books are just less than 2kg). Please select the appropriate shipping option at checkout. Any orders over this weight will be refunded. Shipping costs:
Any single book: £12
Any 2 books: £17.50
All 3 books (Workbook 1, Workbook 2, Planner): £19
I can’t do bulk orders because the shipping is prohibitively expensive (eg. it jumps to £89 for a 5kg package).
How long will delivery be?
If the books are in stock, delivery will be up to 2 weeks. If you order between restocks, it will be up to 4 weeks. Drop Emma an email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to check stock levels.
I do not have to pay an export/import tax because my turnover in Australia is way below the threshold. I don’t know if you may be charged an import tax as the recipient. (If you are, would you mind letting me know, so I can add the amount information here?)
More than 1 book?
The site takes you straight to checkout when you add a book to your cart. To add more than one book, navigate back to the shop’s homepage (this one) and keep shopping. The URL is: https://ayearwithmycamera.com/australia-shop
