    The warranty thing is very important for certain big ticket items. Also electronics may not work here due to the voltage difference.

    You could use an adaptor for voltage difference though

    Depends on the voltage and strength of what you buy - my friend bought a kitchen aid from the states , got the adaptor but when she used it the first time it blew her circuits and the $250 electrician bill defeated the purpose of buying the cheaper kitchen aid !

    Yes, not all electronics will work with a converter. The kitchenaids are a classic example, which sucks as they are so much cheaper there.

    What's the best way with setting up the Paypal account? Do you see it up as an australian account or a US account?

    Set it up as an Australian account and when you are buying from the USA put your USA address as your default address. ( remember to change it back when you buy here though!)
