Hi all,

The wait is killing me and I don't think I can last till the end of the month. Out of desperation I am looking at getting my iPad from overseas, but am not sure which way to go (ebay, priceusa, others)?

How have you guys bought your iPad's and how much did you pay for them?

Note: I want to get the 16GB model.

Thanks in advance.

You can't get one from Price USA at the moment, unless they can do a walk in and get one from the store, all our orders were canceled.

Ebay may be your best bet, pay more but that's the cost of early adoption, that's what I did when my Price USE preorder was canceled.

I'm still contemplating whether or not to wait it out and get it from Australia and not run the risk of getting customs fees buying from the U.S. I found quite a good price for an 16GB model on eBay for $620 + postage. How much did you pay for yours TheKeddi?

Cheapest place? Welcome to the Apple Store - Apple Store (Australia) (http://store.apple.com/au/) in about 4 weeks.

TheKeddi
5th April 2010, 12:23 PM
I paid $800 all up inc postage with insurance and tracking. for the 16 gig model.

I don't mind paying the extra though, I couldn't wait any longer!!!

and if it's under $1,000 including the shipping price there are no import or customs fees, that's a blanket thing on importing anything.

Yeah, to be honest the best and cheapest way to get yourself an iPad is to wait for a few more days (price and release date should be out very soon) then reserve/buy one online. The wait will be worth it for peace of mind and more money in your wallet :)

sorry thats is his real name his sellers name is gabre5 and has 2 left. He was kind enough to send me a message to let me know that he had included a gift card for being the first to buy one off him. all the best

I bought mine off the US iTunes (http://www.facebook.com/mikesay98) guy that I buy my gift cards from.

Let them know I (Tyrone) referred you guys and we can all be happy :)

I've ordered my 32Gb (After transport fees and Cali tax. $950 AUD inc. $50 gift card) iPad and is probably on its way as I type. His fees are 10% of the product price.

He is still willing to go to Best Buy/Apple store et al to buy these for people. :rolleyes:

I'm finding I'm not hanging out terribly for one. Sure I'll get one, but even when they arrive here I'll probably wait a few days to see if the carriers have any deals.

Wow, 1saleaday (http://1saleaday.com.au/) is selling the 16Gb version today for $799!

Uhm... Thats $150 more than expected retail?!?

TheKeddi
7th April 2010, 09:13 AM
You pay what you think it's worth, it doesn't matter how much more than retail it is.

Those who got theirs from Anthony paid more than retail, those who got them from eby paid more than retail, its one of the things early adopters do!

Mine has left Australian customs as of yesterday, hope it's not too far away! Any day now!!!!

there are some really good ebay ones on at the moment -- should i buy them now? are there any problems with the ipads that might get fixed when they come to australia?

does anyone know besides ebay where to buy one fast?

hope ebay ones arnt scams

TheKeddi
9th April 2010, 12:19 PM
If you go with a reputable seller then you will be ok, warranty is international, so yes you can have it fixed here.

as to weather you want to get one now or wait for our own launch depends on how much you are willing to spend to import one.

oh the 3g lol, yer thats a scam allright

time4magik
9th April 2010, 09:34 PM
they say that the ipads will arrive in just says to the sydney store for safe keeping and that they will sell in just 2 weeks! i find that very believable, i mean they did promise us the ipad this month, and apple probly wnt be mean and by 'late april' take it to the 29th, they will probably bring it out on the 18th or the 24th

which means we shoul know the price by atleast the 12th, one things for sure - in the next 7 days we should be finding out the price and be able to put in pre-orders (or we will be just getting it at xmas)

good luck apple, plz dont screw us on price!

Mine is with AusPost

Apr 12, 2010 10:17am AUSTRALIA - SYDNEY Received and awaiting clearance for delivery.

Wonder if that means I'm going to have to pay duty/GST?

hey DaveOZ mines at Brisbane and been that exact status for almost 5 hours now but its under $1000 so there should be know worries! hopefully the tracking info is delayed

Hi guys,

I bought a few 16gb iPads while in the US recently. I'm selling them on eBay at the moment, or you can pick them up off me for $800 in the Brisbane area. Let me know if you are interested!

I'm not sure if ebay links are appropriate in this forum, but my eBay ID ninjapig, if that helps you find me :)

Cheers,

It should look something like this, Scheduled for delivery. > Received at delivery hub. > Lodged with courier pickup service. Are you checking the Australia Post tracking site or USPS? At this stage Aust Post should have more detail.

oh ok. yeah AusPost does have more detail and im checking the USPS site as well. so, yeah, at the moment it says transferred for delivery processing that's at Brisbane but I live 3 hours away from brissy so dont know when it'll get here. any ideas?

13th April 2010, 02:39 PM
I wouldn't believe everything the status says. Mine was supposedly just out customs when I got a pleasant ring at the door. Low and behold, my iPad had arrived.

Within 3 hrs hours though USPS sent me an email with a summary of what happened. It had about 6 other steps in there that wasn't previously there :)

Wi-Fi models:

32GB: $775.00
64GB: $893.00

Glad I got mine for under $1000AUS so I didn't have to pay any import taxes and it wasn't delayed through customs :-)

I think it's hilarious it says "sale" and "40% off" when the original price listed is over 100% markup already lol.

Still, not a bad deal although they've charged double for shipping than that service actually costs.

Still, you sound happy and in a few days you'll have a shiny new iPad so that a what counts.

I'm not sure if I trust ebay for my iPad purchase, I was at the Apple Store the other day and one of the genius' was telling me about a guy who came in, thinking his iPad just needed activating. Turned out it was DOA and he was screwed until it was released in Aus.

For those who imported, how long did everyones iPads sit in customs?
Auspost tracking has said this since friday lunchtime:
Apr 16, 2010 - 12:19pm - AUSTRALIA - BRISBANE - Received and awaiting clearance for delivery.

Really I'm trying to work out if it is likely to come tomorrow, you would have thought customs would work on the weekend wouldn't you?

Any advice from those who've already got there iPad would be great.

I have placed an order with Modernpacifist also, the first time we tried ordering the order was cancelled by Apple. A second attempt has been made and I am still waiting to here of confirmation of order, though Modernpacifist did email me a copy of the Order Acknowlegement. He is a very nice guy and I have been pleased with his communication, etc. Seems very trustworthy and I am sure that if it becomes too difficult for him to order iPads he will simply just refund. I ordered a 16gb Wifi model. Fingers crossed this attempt gets processed by Apple and not cancelled.

19th April 2010, 12:05 PM
well I hope you guys have better luck than me :(
I have just contacted auspost to chase up my package - which their tracking stays is still in customs.

They tell me that the package has been 'returned to sender' by customs - no specific reason.

So I call customs and they tell me they don't return items to sender and it must have been auspost.

I then call both back - both of which pass the buck and say I'll just have to wait and see if the sender gets it back then file a complaint.

Fantastic!

Now what, do I bite the bullet and import another, wait to see if this one gets back to the seller and have him send it out via FEDEX rather than USPS Express - or kick a random person in the genitals!

Is there any difference between an order acknowledgement and an order confirmation? Or are they both the same, just different terms?

supafly
19th April 2010, 01:36 PM
Nope, different things - one is the Acknowlegement of the order, the other confirms it....

Nope, different things - one is the Acknowlegement of the order, the other confirms it....

If I placed my order on the 14th, the following day got a acknowledgement that says when it will ship and that it hasnt shipped yet, has an order number and a sales ref number... But have not received anything since, who should I be contacting to say I never received a order confirmation? Its been way too long.

Has anyone received an order confirmation after their order acknowledgement?

well it could be worse guys
my 16gb iPad bought on ebay arrived at customs brisbane and the box was empty!
So someone must have stolen it somewhere along the way.
I'm now trying to get the seller to claim from USPS insurance, otherwise I will have to open a paypal dispute.

Pain in the ass to say the least, kinda tarnished the whole ipad thing for me at the moment.

Express mail, mine shipped on a Tuesday also, received it Monday. Check your USPS tracking it should state a guaranteed delivery date, that's usually pretty accurate.

how does the customs judge gst.
ok so you got 1k and over tax, so do they look at the declared value/invoice of the item and do a direct conversion ( as they cant compare to aud prices of same item )
or do they add a buffer zone of like 20 per cent?

hypothetically speaking, the top end model, wifi plus 3g is 829 plus taxes pushes it to about 900.
conversion still makes it under 1k so why are people getting hit with gst?
courier costs are not included right?

MightyAtom
20th April 2010, 10:20 PM
Probably because people are paying well over retail price for these things, and yes I'm pretty sure they include the shipping cost when calculating import duty.

Funny how we got it shipped the same way. Did you buy yours on eBay as well? So much for EXPRESS delivery, if that's the case. I can't seem to find the guaranteed delivery date on the tracking information, all I can find is this:

No, they don't include the shipping cost. They go by the declared value on the invoice/shipping label. You can declare a lower value on a parcel, but I've done that a few times and half the time it ends up being taxed at the market rate anyways.

Well seeing as the item is actually worth under AU$1000 (no iPad is worth more than $1,000, disregard what you paid for it - Apple charge US$829 for the most expensive one), there's no problems regardless of what you do.

Hi Chris,

this was my tracking info...took a while for USPS to update. I found once it was in Australia the Aust Post tracking site was the best. It updated regularly and more frequent then the USPS site.
Australia Post - International Tracking (http://ice.auspost.com.au/) - Just remember no spaces in your tracking number

According to the Australia Post website: "Your item was lodged with the courier pickup service at 08:12 on 23 Apr 2010."

I've called, and AusPost confirmed that it is on board with the courier. However I have spoken to the local courier who normally does parcels for australia post, and he definitely doesn't have it.

So now I am left in iPad limbo. :(

I'm quite sure Australia post will deliver it to your door so definitely NO to Saturday delivery (they sometimes do it around Christmas however) and for public holidays no. So probably Tuesday! Mine should hit customs Monday, so I hope they're working Monday:)

Definitely! Mine was meant to come on the 28th too (via USPS) but came this morning! Very happy, typing on it now in fact:). So it must be waiting to pass customs (mine took exactly an hour yesterday) then it will be awaiting final processing then gets take to a delivery hub and put on a delivery truck (this happened very early this morning for me).

I'm guessing she probably wanted to preserve the initial unboxing experience for me :confused:

How long does this normally take? I was reading this thread and most people just got pass the customs straight away. Is this because i didn't put my reciept in there to proof the value? Will i need to proof its value? Is there anything to do with EMS?

I scoured through this thread and saw prices from $640-$800.

Mine cost me 627 although I iddid transfer au$640 just incase any currency fluctuations arose.

Purchased a 64GB 3G iPad today.

Will wait to see how long it takes to drop.

Awesome I think the 3G will be a great addition, although I am not sure of the point of 64GB.

Hope it arrives quick for you

Going in for a total knee replacement on 24th May.

I'm going to pump the iPad full of movies, tv shows, music, games, apps - everything I can to pass the time.

So jealous of everyone ><

I nearly had the opportunity to buy one from the US from a member on MTAU, but they're not replying to my PM's which is a bit disheartening. :(

Plus my direct order via a forwarder was cancelled, so it must be a sign that I should shut up and wait, lol.

Gday tdmc,

So as not to hijack this thread, can we discuss this a bit more here (http://forums.mactalk.com.au/8/84385-recovering-knee-operation.html#post962882).

Thanks,
Geoff.
