Not sure how hitting shipped goods makes Aus more competitive. It simply forces the consumer to buy from uncompetitive sources! Aus companies are years behind when it comes to online trading (and online presence generally if you look at the design of many websites over here), and their answer is to lobby government to stop consumers from buying from overseas, instead of getting their own act together. Rant over - I feel better for that
Not all e-commerce sites are bad. I think mine is OK!!!
