I need to buy a Toshiba 860 EVO HDD for a family member so I Googled it yesterday and received a hit from Amazon.
I selected it and proceeded to the checkout and selected my delivery address and I then received a message containing the following.
"We are unable to ship non-digital items from amazon.com to Australian shipping addresses.
Please choose a shipping address that is not in Australia to proceed. Some restrictions may still apply depending on the item.
You can also visit Amazon.com.au to access millions of products for delivery to Australia."
I clicked on the Amazon.com.au hotlink and entered the product details only to be presented with a page of offers, one of which was over $870.
I can’t understand why the Amazon page stated the shipping cost to Australia only to later state they don’t ship “non-digital items” to Australia or how they classify a HDD as a non-digital item.
Fortunately, our son-in-law is currently working at Newmont’s head office in Denver and asked whether we wanted him to bring anything back with him this weekend.
Thanks for nothing, Amazon.
