After creating the new address entry, you will be prompted for ID information if it is required for delivery to that location. Errors or missing information may cause delays beyond or original delivery date and the carrier may contact you to correct it.
Customs offices in some countries and regions require the importer of record (IOR) to provide a particular form of identification (ID) before releasing a shipment. Countries, regions, and jurisdictions that can require an ID number include: Argentina, Bahrain, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Jordan, Kuwait, Mexico, Nigeria, Oman, Peru, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Uruguay.
However, it may happen that these countries' customs office may need additional information and you might be required to provide that data directly to the delivery carrier. For additional detail regarding the import clearance process, you can visit the Taiwan customs information here.
If you post the ASIN of one of the catalog pages on which you list, we can tell also. Something that’s critical to using the MWS API, and Amazon doesn’t provide an easy way for the merchant to figure out what it is.
Damn just ordered a vape on Amazon, hoping the carrier won't check 0 This is why the cute's them keep getting stabbed kids ordering sh×t online they shouldn't be...........
(Original post by TomTom) When you can be out of a job for being negligent, you don't risk asking for ID ... They know nothing is going to happen if they give an age restricted product to a 16-year-old for example.
You're mental, mate. It's rare that anyone looks younger than 25, and in that event it takes a few seconds to check their ID ... a few seconds isn't worth losing your source of income. The people who deliver from Amazon don't even know what's in the package a lot of the time.
I sometimes order age restricted games from Amazon and usually they'll just leave it at my door or post it through the letterbox. His mum got a phone call from UK customs who had checked the contents of the package.
As the world’s largest online retailer, Amazon .com sends untold numbers of emails to consumers on a daily basis. Clark, Inc. General Manager Christa Disease recently received an email that appeared to come from Amazon asking her to confirm her personal details connected to her account.

Third-party device manufacturers are also incorporating the Echo’s virtual assistant, Alexa, into their own products. You can use an Echo for a variety of different tasks such as playing music from Amazon Music or Spotify ; setting a reminder to do something later that day; giving information about the weather; or relaying stats on your favorite sports teams or the news.
Amazon is also constantly adding to Alexa’s built-in capabilities, including a variety of clever responses and Easter eggs. The LED ring around the device’s top edge will glow blue first, then turn orange.
You can set the mood for the day by asking her to play music by genre, artist, song or a specific playlist. You can also use an Echo to make calls or send messages to contacts or to purchase or re-order items on Amazon.
Amazon also added a capability that lets you use multiple Alexa devices in your home as an intercom system. That is, thanks to the placement and power of these mics, it can understand you saying “Alexa” and your query from across the room, your voice coming from a variety of different directions.
It is basically listening for a specific sound wave pattern and ignores everything else until it picks up that signal. The device records your query, sends it to Amazon ’s cloud for analysis, then responds.
The Echo lights up when it is listening, so if you place it in a spot where you can see the LED ring, you can check that it heard its wake word or not. And to see a history of all the things it’s heard and the queries you ’ve made, you can head into the Alexa app.
A number of Alexa device owners reported on social media that their speakers were randomly laughing for no apparent reason. Amazon ’s technology isn’t always perfect, but false positives can be mitigated as long as you ’re paying attention.
If you notice the device’s LED ring has illuminated, it means it’s actively listening. And if you have the Echo’s volume turned down low (or on mute), you may not hear its questions or responses if it does accidentally mishear an audio request.
The biggest benefit of a device like the Echo in a home is that it replaces the need to look at a computer or smartphone screen for a variety of tasks. Researchers have also demonstrated that it’s possible for the device to be hacked to listen to everything it hears, not just its wake word.
Before you buy an Echo, you may want to check that other members of your household are also comfortable with the idea of an always-on listening device. At $99, it’s not incredibly expensive, but if you want something cheaper, you can opt for a $50 Echo Dot or Google Home Mini (currently $34) instead.
