Hi Sophie,

You will have to ring the office on this one..

I dont know how NSW differs from Victoria in this regard, however in Victoria having Suppliers drop off goods and/or having customers come to pick up goods would not constitute a “purely online store”.

You will need to also check with your local council as they have some rules/ specifications in regards to this area (at least in victoria).

example, local council suggested to me, that a piece of A4 paper on my front door would be sufficient based on the fact, that I did not intend on having customers come to pick up goods or suppliers dropping off goods, and all transactions were to be done online.

A lot of people dislike the idea of not being able to hold an online seller accountable like a normal retailer, so things like a postal address, premise address, phone numbers and ABN on your site are considered very valuable/ prefered.
