Purchase SG-4860 in Australia



  • Are there any resellers in Australia who stock the pfsense hardware? Or do I have to order from the pfsense store and pay $100 shipping?

    None of the pfsense "partners" in Australia seem to resell the hardware.



  • Don't forget if the purchase price plus shipping goes above AUD1000, you'll also be slugged 10% GST plus a processing fee by customs if you purchase directly from the pfSense store.



  • You could buy the ADI version of the 4860.

    This would keep costs below 1000$ AUD to avoid customs/tax.

    Then purchase a pfSense Gold Subscription and/or Support online.

    Alternatively. Purchase pfSense  support online, then ask pfSense sales for a discount on the SG-4860.

    PS: I have purchased a 4860 from the pfSense store and had it shipped via FedEx. Yes its expensive but I was able to track the shipment and it came superfast.

    Have a look here pfSense Partners and
    please click on ASIA at the right side, then you will see some resellers from;

    • Auckland NZ, New Zeeland
    • Indonesia, Malaysia
    • Australia

    Some partners are "VAR" marked that means selling hardware and some services!



  • none of these sites have a online stores
    this is very inconvenient and preventing purchase as i have no intention of being verbal sold a unit with credit card or the like.

    are their any stores that sell the pfsense devices online with secure checkout in australia?


  • Netgate

    What is listed there is what is known. Might be time to just pick up the phone.

    Can I echo what this guy is saying?
    As an Aussie, I can't see a single online presence for these on the web to buy, marked up or not.

    There's a lot of very small to mid sized consultant looking business's clearly offering the product with either a support contract or part of an investigation / assistance with a business security - but a general "fire and forget" click and buy, nothing.

    A little disappointing, I see the SG-2200 is only $300 US, so I was hoping to be able to pick one up here on a whim but seemingly not.

    Any plans in future?  Also $100 shipping to AU?  I mean my girl lived in California 2 years and shipped me stuff from the US all the time, even with packing time / materials, a box the size of the SG-2200 shouldn't cost more than $60 US. (if not $40)



  • You may not be aware of this forwarding service from Aust Post.

    I haven't used it but friend recommended it some time ago.

    They mark up - so basically it doesn't work out that much cheaper anyhow.
    Although it's nice such a large business is now offering this stuff.
