Amazon Australian Kindle Store Open For Business

Angus Kidman at Lifehacker Australia:

Amazon is making its biggest push yet into the Australian market, launching an Amazon.com.au site for its Kindle content, offering pricing for books and apps in Australian dollars and opening up its Kindle Directing Publishing self-publishing platform to local authors. What does the change involve and is it worth switching to the Australian store? Find out in our in-depth launch guide.

Not a lot has changed to be honest, but you can convert your previous Kindle purchases to the new Australian store:

You have the option of changing your account to be set in Australia, to take advantage of the local content and pricing. You won’t lose access to any pre-purchased books, even if those titles are not available in the “Australian” store. However, newspaper and magazine subscriptions may not convert across (Amazon says it will notify any readers with current subscriptions of the potential impact before they make the change).

Reckoner had its humble beginnings way back in June of 2013.
