Hello all. I was interested in buying the Coopers kit since it comes with all the equipment needed, and I can reuse it all for brewing later. The carboy seems particularly convenient since it is already set up with a spigot (I'd probably screw up installing one myself).
In any case, I checked the US Coopers site and checked the products and prices, and then I checked the AU site, and found that the products are just all-around cheaper (I checked exchange rates to confirm). For example, the base kit sells for $129 (shipping included) on the US site, but sells for $95au which on the AU site. It says shipping is $15 within AU, and though it doesn't state how much international shipping is, I doubt it would a huge amount of money. The various kits and supplies are also a lot cheaper, as well. The US site has a premium kit that also comes with 3 extra refill kits for $199, but the kit with the same three kits from the AU site still comes out to less.
I know it's kind of a strange question, and I'm not sure if anyone has much experience with this subject, but I was curious: Would it be better to order from the AU site (will there be snags in shipping or other issues) or would it be better to pay more to get it from the US supplier?
