Huge Shipping Changes For LEGO’s Australian Online Store

Some people may have received an email recently saying that there order was being cancelled and re-sent from a new warehouse that handles Australian and New Zealand orders. This news about a new warehouse came as a surprise.

I have spoken to LEGO Australia and they have informed me that they will have more information about the new warehouse soon – but the new shipping pricing are now live on the online store.

Shipping has always been a huge barrier for buying smaller exclusives from LEGO, but these new prices are hopefully going to resolve that. Here’s what is different.

Lower Free Shipping Threshold

The free shipping threshold for Australian orders has been dropped from $200 to $149.

This should make slightly smaller orders qualify for free shipping easier. I also appreciate that the shipping threshold has been set to $149, rather than $150 as it means a $149.99 set (like the Winter Village Fire Station) will qualify without having to bump up your order.

Cheaper Regular Shipping

Shipping has always been overly expensive and essentially ruled out buying smaller items from LEGO directly, as it just wasn’t worth it. These new shipping prices will help with that.

Standard shipping is now just $12.50 for all orders under $149.

Express Shipping is now $30 for all orders.

I am impressed that LEGO have lowered the free shipping threshold and made shipping more affordable.
