I've successfully used several times to reship items from
the US.  Most recently they reshipped some running shoes for me.  All up it
was under  50% of the sale price for the same shoes in Australia, and
took about 10 days total.  The shoe manufacturer (ASICS) doesn't allow
US retailers to ship to Australia.  Some well-known bushwalking gear
manufacturers have similar policies.  And many Amazon sellers (unlike
ebay) just don't ship to Australia.
