I'm probably being picky but unless you search it isn't obvious that you will pay GST on qualifying items

So most likely you'll be paying 10% Ozzy GST and if over $400 NZ GST plus costs and fees etc.

Yeah I think that will be the case, unless they are like Amazon who collect  at the time you checkout.

 

I think they should have a note on their website about the change, as I think people may get caught out, as previously the website did include GST and have CGA protection. So people may buy an iphone thinking it is cheaper,  and then be caught out by duty and GST.  Where if you had purchased that iphone from their .nz website last year, it would have included those things. Basically it appears that it is now like any other overseas website with a .nz website address. This is why I think .nz addresses should only be allowed to be purchased by NZ entities, like the Australian domains, so NZers knew it was a NZ company. Not sure why we aren't following Australia on this.

I'm sorry but if you sell in NZ with a .co.nz website address then they should be charging and paying the GST/import fees on NZ orders.

 

I can see a lot of people getting hit.

Because the product is being shipped outside of Australia it won't be charged GST - they're in effect 'exporting' a good/service out of the country thus exempt from GST.

But are they charging NZers a lower amount than Aussies to account for that?

There is no worry about Paying NZ GST as the Most expensive Item I could find was $394 NZ :-) (and Free Shipping)

 

Not a NZ company so no CGA Protection or GST to pay.

It does discuss the NZ CGA on this page https://www.dicksmith.co.nz/dn/warranty-terms-and-conditions/ , so maybe they do cover it. It looks like they also have NZ based service centres.

Kinda defeats the purpose when you can PB tech things for next day usually.

I wouldn't be too quick to dismiss Ruslan Kogan and his Dick Smith venture. Few products listed and not enticing delivery times, but the site's been up for only 24 hours.  The Aussie site has much more available - far more important to get that site up and running, probably simpler too with product crossover from Kogan.com.au, costing delivery etc already sorted.

 

He has had companies registered in NZ in the past - so must have had plans, but then removed / inactive. From what I've read about him, he's aggressive, determined, challenging, and "disruptive" to the market.
