Amazon Australia has introduced a new storefront, Amazon Warehouse, offering deals on pre-owned and open box items across a wide range of products including smartphones, laptops, tablets, home appliances and more.

Amazon Warehouse adds thousands of discounted items to the more than 125 million products on with free delivery on eligible products for Prime members.

Before being listed for sale, each item undergoes a thorough quality check to ensure it is in good functional and physical condition. It is then graded according to one of four evaluations – Like New, Very Good, Good and Acceptable – which determines how deeply it is discounted.

Appearance, functional qualities, accessories and packaging condition are all listed on the product page.

Every order is directly fulfilled by Amazon and comes with all of the retailer’s customer service and returns rights.

Amazon Australia country manager, Matt Furlong said Amazon Warehouse is home to items returned by customers if it is not what they were looking for, there is a cosmetic defect or packaging is damaged.

“These items cannot then be sold as new but are still great quality and in good working condition. Amazon Warehouse gives these products a new lease on life and offers customers a wider selection to choose from.”
