ב' ניסן ה' אלפים תשס"ט
The Yeshivah Centre (Melbourne) has provided an online Mechirat Chametz form devised by Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Telsner. To give some context, here is a small excerpt from Rabbi Telsner's preamble:
... It is traditional and preferable to perform the Appointment in person with the Agent through taking hold of a kerchief or other item belonging to the Agent. It is also customary to make a small donation to the Agent. However, in today's busy world it may be more convenient to perform the Appointment over the internet....
The online form is very easy. You simply need to read the contract, specify the locations of your chametz, and give a single click with your mouse to appoint Rabbi Telsner as your agent. The ACTUAL sale of your chametz will happen in the normal traditional way on erev Pesach.
