Jeez John, $7.99 and free ship from China to Australia !!
That would be Aust Post min cost to ship a light parcel within Aust itself, makes you realise just how vulnerable out manufacturing industry is to particular overseas locations, especially the might of China in particular.
I wonder if they realise that if they even tripled the price, it would still be a viable purchase to Aussies ?

How about this?............
I wanted a small electronic item from China @ 99 cents with free postage.
Even a letter to the house next door will cost $1.00
So I ordered two. Couldn't resist doubling my bargain. lol
Couldn't even figure how they could manufacture the item for 99 cents.
Cheers

They don't. They manufacture for 10 cents and still make a profit on postage.

Hey Les but the people import make a lot of dough maybe tarriffs need putting back .I know years ago my Girlfriend worked in retail she showed me what her boss paid for items and then the markup.It was huge ...All the stuff from China off course.When I grew up made in Japan was a joke but today China is no joke everything we buy has something to do with China ..a lot of it crap too!

For sure there Lazylux, if there's an Aussie wholesaler buying form China and reselling, you can bet they know what the 'market will bear' and charge what might seem an obscene markup.
Many time though, the Aussie costs of warehousing, wages etc, just demand this to make a reasonable profit.
The internet, ebay, etc have all made it a lot clearer to consumers just how low a cost there is in many countries, from the third World emerging places with almost nil labour costs, to places like the US where economies of scale = lower prices.
Poor old Oz has the shite end of the stick with both of those considerations.
I bet that little Chinese guy selling his net for $7.99 delivered China to Australia isn't aware of what Aussies will pay.

You are quite right Les.
I would believe that many Aussies have no idea of all the costs of running a shopfront business. There needs to be a reasonable mark-up in order to make enough wages to stay in business. The same costs do not apply to on-line sales.

As for the free or low-cost postage from China. This comes about because of the International reciprical agreement where each country delivers the incoming mail without charge. Australia's mail costs are high because of our wages but China's are low. The Chinese exporter has to pay only a small amount to 'China Post' and Australia has to bear the cost of street delivery.

My Hilux made in Thailand or just assembled there.Cost to ship.$1200 to Australia.Labour costs in Thailand very low too my wife Thai.A lot of pricing goes by amount ofpopulation .We have small population therefore businesses need a big markup to sustain themselves as not high turnover.In Thailand every second car is a dual cab so prices are quite low and off course need to be affordable to Thais.Also Australians have a high take home pay and love our new toys so will fork out for it.Some 4wd stuff is way overpriced but they know we will still buy it ..

It's not simply "high turnover" in Asia, it's low wages.
That Australian "high take-home pay" you speak of is a significant part of the cost of goods in Australia.

Next thing to buy would be a crash helmet for when you have to stop in a hurry and all the stuff flies forward. I remember a fatality from a slab of beer loose in the back of a hatchback that shot forward flattened the back seat and killed the driver
