At the Pesa conference last year, an Auspost rep was talking about how they are suffering because of the increase in offshore purchasing.

When you buy something on ebay from china, for example, the postage that the sender is quite small (in comparison to postage Australian pricing). There’s an agreement in place apparently where the chinese postal system will give x% for every parcel delivered to Australia to cover the Australian delivery component.

This percentage is not enough to cover the cost of delivery, so it seems Auspost are needing to make up for it in other ways.
