The year was 1999 when Australia won the ICC Cricket World Cup, school kids were busy with Pokemon, and of course, eBay officially launched in Australia. Ever since eBay started their business, it completely changed the entire online shopping procedure. According to several reports, around 8 million Australians are shopping with eBay every month. In fact, in the last 15 years, there have been around 681 million transactions, which is incredible.
Although eBay Australia had different layout fifteen years ago, when most of the sales were finalized by auctions, and those were second-hand products. Nowadays, 90% of the brand new items are being sold on eBay Australia, which is a massive improvement.
Consider Australia as a country or continent, the online shoppers’ participation varies based on states. For example, South Australians (Adelaide-based) have been leading as the night shoppers while Western Australians (Perth) are at the bottom. Furthermore, people from Northern Territory (Darwin) have spent the most on eBay, comparing to other states.
In 2008, eBay introduced their first e-commerce app available for Apple users only (accessible through iTunes). Aussies are known to be the quick adopters of new techs and don’t hesitate to spend big if they like something. Therefore, eBay Australia has been a massive success.
If you are from Australia, I don’t have to introduce eBay to you. However, you should also know that you can check whether there are any eBay Australia coupons available for you. You will be able to enjoy lucrative discounts on various products. In addition, please take a look whether you can find any facility which can guarantee you eBay Australia free shipping service. Sometimes eBay Australia also allows you to select “click & collect” option, which will deliver your product at your nearest Woolworths store. You just need to go there and collect your parcel. In that case, if no one is at your house while the delivery man arrives, this could be the best option for you.
