Postcard collectors are generally well served by on-line auctions.  Trade card collectors are also well catered to by eBay and the former has quite large listings of cigarette cards. eBay Australia was launched on 15th October 1999 (but with less categories than the USA site) and is heralding a new era in on-line trading of Australian material as more and more Australian dealers and collectors get on-line. Many card sellers disgruntled with eBay are now listing their material on French website Delcampe. Other Australian internet auction sites do not list many cards and eBay remains the most popular.
