Hi all!

 

 

 

I'm quite new in NZ and I just wonder if there is any "Famous" or "Popular" electronic shop in Australia that ships to New Zealand. That shop may be something like Mighty Ape that sells electronics in general, accessories, pc, games and so forth...

 

Nowadays I'm basically importing from the USA, but takes a long time to arrive...

 

Any recommendations will be very appreciated! 

 

Thank you!

Depends on what you are after. PBtech is pretty good with PC and electronics pricing.





Do whatever you want to do man.

Yeah I know, often they make great deals with sales and stuff

 

In general it's more expensive when I want to buy something at that moment, which is not on sales.

 

If you have any Australian shop like PB Tech that ships to here, let me know please :) 

 

 

 

Thanks!

I take it you realize that NZ customs GST threshold limit is NZ$400 incl shipping before you will have to pay 15% GST and around $40 worth of misc fees to customs. Take this cost into consideration...

just use Aliexpress (China) and choose one of the faster shipping options
I don't think I've ever bought anything from an Australian based website.

I have found PB to be cheaper than any place I could find in Australia for branded PC components.
