Plans to bring back Australian store?

    Is there any news on when OnePlus will launch in Australia? I don't understand what the massive hold up is when you guys ship to so many other countries already. Surely shipping and GST isn't that complicated to work out? I'm thinking of getting the 6T because my 3 is starting to be unable to charge so I need a replacement and I really don't want to have to deal with 3rd party stores and upscaled prices.

    I couldn't find anything, hoping someone might know or at least be able to suggest options.

    Unlikely. If you can't find anything on Google, no one here will know.

    And in that case I'm sure people would be able to tell me how they got their phones, which would also be helpful

    Hi Nick, hate to say this, but we don't have any plan for Australia at this point..

    That's a shame as OnePlus phones are becoming known in Australia and New Zealand. But as @Nickexp said we have to deal with third party sellers at inflated prices.

    As Rusty said, that's a real shame and quite frankly kind of dumb move when there's such a big market out here, we get price gouged for everything so competition isn't particularly fierce. Plus just disappointing to existing fans who need to constantly get up sold by 3rd parties and deal with long waits and higher prices. I'm not entirely sure what the difficulties are with shipping here but if orders are under $1000 AUD GST doesn't apply and if warranties are honoured Australian consumer law is mostly just "don't screw with consumers" so I don't see the issue given you've done it before.

    In the words of Fr.Ted, the sales numbers there are SMALL and the country is FAR AWAY.

    But shipping methods exist, so it's not like it's really that much effort to just charge us shipping on a per order basis from like China or whenever their current warehouses are. They really don't need to add any infrastructure beyond just letting us ship to here.

    Maybe they just don't care that much, a bit like someone who still has a comment about their OP3 shipping date in their signature.

    OnePlus staff have previously commented that they don't want to ship to Australia unless they can provide service centers to give the customer a decent user experience. Personally I don't see why it would be that hard for OnePlus to contract a third party repairer in Australia.

    Link got removed, OnePlus don't let people post 3rd party sites, and yet also don't sell to here so like, kinda dumb.
