Looks like this is the end of Group Buys as we know it.
My position may well be redundant next year.

That's just ridiculous, I dont think there is a single decision I have agreed with since the last election. Might be time to move countries lol.

I think the issue is also how they enforce it.
it would take a fair amount of customs staff to scrutinize every package for contents above 20$

And then you can get around that by marking it as a gift. 20$ is not an unreasonable amount for a gift.

1000$ is perhaps is under the current system.

if the retailers are crying poor because the internet is eating away at their profits they need to re think their business model. lobbying government is not cool.

Now why do i still have to go to a dealer to buy a car?
I should be able to order it off the interwebs and pay the lowest price that they can offer? rather than line a salespersons targets and have to try to haggle over annoying extras.
only have a showroom and service centers for demonstrations and test drives.
I get the VIN with my purchase as a tracking number and ill see it all the way until i pick it up from the showroom or get a nice rep to deliver it!

Couldn't agree with you more, this governments idea of policies is a joke, and is only going to hurt the public financially

Yep, what I hate is, everyone who votes for them realizes their mistake, then get the other guys back in, but labor never reverse the crap laws passed by the libs, so we are stuck with them (Most of them). But on the flip side, libs reveres all of the good choices from labor immediately, NBN for one.

This is going to become a political debate lol. Seriously tho, this will stop thoes of us to under declare items, I doubt they will believe a $2000 laptop cost us $19... but there are other ways that might still work, as mentioned before, gifts maybe?

It's just a tax grab plain and simple. Even with the tax, things overseas will still be cheaper even with postage plus most of the time buying online is the only option because you can't get want you want from a store.

Email notifications don't always work. Would be good if Site Admin can investigate whether this is widespread issue or a bug in the system.
