- The Goods And Services Tax now applies to most overseas purchases, including records.
The price for all Discogs orders made in Australia will increase by ten percent.
The Australian Goods And Services Tax (GST), which until July 1st only applied to international orders over AUD$1,000, now covers all orders made from overseas retailers. This means Discogs sellers to Australia will be charged an additional ten percent on top of their eight percent seller fee owed to Discogs. That ten percent GST is then passed onto the buyer who, for example, would now pay $22 for a $20 order.
As of Saturday, June 30th, Discogs is working to add a solution to the Marketplace to support these changes. Find more information at Discogs.
