"Official" petition for Direct Sales to Australia, Step Up Program and EVGA Bucks.
 
There are many of us in Australia who wish to purchase EVGA products direct from EVGA.
It is hard for us to get hold of the latest products here and we all wish we could just order direct.
 
If your from Australia please /sign
The more they see our need, the more likely they are to provide direct sales to us. 
Lets prove there is a market in Australia.
 
Duane Bretherton - EVGA AU/NZ Country Manager We would very much like to introduce some of these EVGA features to the AU community like the Step Up program and EVGA bucks but this takes time and the right infrastructure to make it work efficiently. In time we can start with baby steps, please understand the AU market is smaller than other demanding countries so makes it very volatile and in tough times can be a fragile market. However, we will persist to push EVGA down under.

Matthew Hurwitz - Assistant Product Manager Thanks for the feedback. Rest assured AU isn't being ignored. We are working on ways to support our AU customers better, including our new global warranty that we will announce tomorrow. Again we appreciate the support for our brand, stay tuned!

    Be careful what you wish for, they want $70-75 just to ship to Canada right now. (or at least where I am in Canada)

    I just want to be able to buy from EVGA.
    I buy from FrozenCPU all the time and it doesnt cost much to get parts sent to Aust.
     
    Buying in USA + Postage from USA to Aust = way less then to buy in Australia, if you can buy in first place...

    Yup, I am obviously in for this or if FrozenCPU stocks them as the shipping to AU is reasonable.

    Well I am after a graphics card, gave up on the motherboards ;) you can almost purchase 2x brand new hydro units to the cost of 1x unit here so even if you had to ship the item back to the USA you'd still be ahead.

    I'm from Germany and I sign in Your petition. Though have not been there as I'm in fear of box yellyfish, sharks, spiders and snakes.
    If these beasts would not occupy Australia I would love to come as many of my friends did. Just today I've learned a diver is being eaten up by a bull shark.
    "EVGA Austrialia" come on give our brothers and sisters what they need for hardware survival in a more and more globalizing world, which just means everywhere everything is getting worse equally.

    I asked about this in July last year. This is the reply I got
     
    Hi Simba,
    Thanks for the feedback here. We will amend the where to buy page on EVGA.com
     
    In future, the best site for you to source information will be www.evga.com.au you can check here regularly to find local promotions or events, recommended retailers, system house and etail.
     
    We would very much like to introduce some of these EVGA features to the AU community like the Step Up program and EVGA bucks but this takes time and the right infrastructure to make it work efficiently. In time we can start with baby steps, please understand the AU market is smaller than other demanding countries so makes it very volatile and in tough times can be a fragile market. However, we will persist to push EVGA down under. cheers
     
     
     
     

    Kind regards,
     
     
    Duane Bretherton
    EVGA AU/NZ Country Manager

    dbretherton@evga.com
     
    I'd love it if EVGA made an online store available for us.  Not only so we could use our EVGA bucks, but so we can avoid the blatant rip-offs that computer retailers charge in this country.
    Currently the 680 is selling for $650-$699 AU at stores in Australia.
     
    You can buy it cheaper from the States, including shipping!
    Plus it's almost impossible to find a store that stocks a decent range of eVGA parts.
     
    C'mon eVGA, time to step up and give your southern hemisphere customers some love!

    Yes please!
     
    Best I found was TigerDirect, they will ship internationally. A GTX 680 from there was gonna cost me $599.40AUD shipped to Melbourne. Still $100 cheaper than buying from CPL/PCCaseGear/etc.

    Ship EVGA Products Locally in Australia!

    I'm in Melbourne and would certainly buy direct from EVGA, add my name to the list.

    It's a joke that we pay AU$699.00 for EVGA parts that are US$499.00 ... Hell, if Apple can get the Australian pricing right when the release new products why can't other manufacturers.

    Example, MBA 11" is US$999.00 (ex tax), and it's AU$1099.00 including 10% Tax so basically 1:1 pricing.

    Essentially we SHOULD be paying $549.00 for the GTX 680 ...

    Actually EVGA Australia doesn't sell anything, you can't purchase off them and that's MSRP, you can't actually buy the card anywhere for that price....
