How does a US Merchant open an account to use Bpay and direct deposit?

My online shop is an international online store with warehouse in the UK, the US and France.
I am customizing multiple local sites to show local currency, local language and local payment options while
the product are shipped from the UK, France or the US to Australia (one example of local).

What are the top three payments in Australia? Credit Card? Debit Card? Online Banking (online Bill Payment)? Bank Transfer? Paypal? Cash?
What is the local postal company like USPS in the US (not UPS)?
What do Australian customers value from US online merchant: Low Price, Quality, Broad Offering, Free Shipping or Fast Shipping ?
What makes sense: Price including shipping cost, GST and Import duties, or Price including GST and Duties and a separate line item for shipping, or a line item for each component price, GST, import duties, and shipping cost?
What is the number one online store in Australia?

Eventually I will have a local representative handling customer service and marketing in Australia.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks
CoolShop
