Also, since so many of you have been asking us for them, here's our full list of country-specific posts outlining how to ship anything from Amazon to any country in the world.
(Editor’s note: This post has been updated with news about Amazon ’s expanded Europe services. Jeff Bezos founded Amazon as an e-commerce/fulfillment company in Seattle in 1994, initially selling books.
Shopping from Amazon .com is a growing option in Europe, but you might quickly find there are complications, such as the ineligibility of quite a few items for international shipping and added delivery times, as well as taxes and customs. Amazon is pushing hard into Europe’s most populous markets including the Netherlands, France, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
In mid-August, the Sweden website was still directing shoppers to Germany, Amazon ’s European hub. But Reuters and other news outlets quoted Amazon executives as saying the company will bring “a complete retail offering” to Sweden.
Many, if not most, digital companies in Scandinavia such game giant Supercell and conventional retailers such as IKEA use AWS. American, British, Dutch, German, Spanish, French, and Italian sites have an impressive range of products.
As of March 2020, Dutch Amazon .NL site finally provides a full range of goods, though much of the merchandise still comes from distribution hubs in Germany. Even your delivery addresses and bank account information is saved for your next purchase with any of the national Amazon shops.
The question is, “How you can navigate other Amazon sites in French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, or any of the other offered languages, depending on the country?” The good news is the German language Amazon .DE has an English version (so far this is the only one in a non-English speaking country though Google translates much of the text automatically).
Well, if you live in Germany, or in fact any other country, it is a great way to use this well-known reliable shopping platform whether you are looking to get those shoes that sold out in the store in your size, doing price comparison, or you just do not want to deal with the masses of peak-time shopping in downtown Amsterdam, Berlin or London. Amazon delivers your purchase using the local postal service and/or Bonn-based German shipping giant DHL.
In case you are not at home when your package arrives, the carrier will leave a note specifying the closest post office where you can pick up your delivery. Similar scenarios happen with the DHL shipments, except it is likely that you will be picking up your package at one of their affiliate offices, otherwise known as the Table, cell phone shops, or similar existing businesses where packages are dropped off, awaiting your pick up.
Do not be surprised about people picking up their packages from businesses that are not typically related to postal services. Two years ago, contributor Ivana Aramaic was in a supermarket in Oslo, Norway buying some bananas when a woman ahead of her showed her package pick up slip to the cashier and was delivered her Amazon package at the supermarket.
It has to be delivered to a single address within Germany, Austria, Belgium, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands or Switzerland. “Purchases exceeding a total value of 29 euros are delivered to Germany, Austria, Belgium, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland at no delivery cost.
Orders to these countries that contain books on their own, or books combined with items from our Music, DVD, VHS, Games or Software categories, also qualify for free delivery, irrespective of the total order cost,“ according to the Amazon help section. The prices on the product pages are shown with the applicable tax rate of the specific Amazon site country.
However, the Value Added Tax or VAT of the country that goods are shipped to is applied at the last step before order confirmation. If you are stationed in Europe as part of NATO or U.S. Armed Forces, you are probably familiar with your tax exemption status.
It is a bit of a hassle if you do not have a printer, but you are probably shopping on Amazon because the advantages outweigh this little inconvenience. Amazon states on its Facebook page “Our vision is to be Earth’s most customer-centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online.“ I cannot help but agree they have pretty much achieved that based on my customer experience, mostly shopping on the German site.
It was a bit complicated to navigate to the page where you enter your phone number if you want the customer service to contact you and provide support. The push into Scandinavia included the Jackhammer project in Western Sweden, Amazon ’s biggest investment in renewable power outside the United States.
Jackhammer will power Amazon Web Services data centers in Sweden. • In early 2020, Amazon extended its full marketplace offerings into the Netherlands, though consumers will be largely serviced through fulfillment centers in Germany near the Dutch border.
Amazon has invested about 3.3 billion euros in Poland so far and is hiring 10,000 seasonal workers for 2020. “There is a strong tradition of click-and-collect in both the UK and Italy and the plan is to roll Counter out further across Europe,” Patrick SPANC, Amazon ’s director of lockers and pick-up stated in a news release.
• Also in 2018, Alexa learned French as its Echo smart speaker technology arrived in France. • In 2018, Amazon executives added 1,000 tech jobs in Dublin, which will ultimately bringing the number to 2,500.
