Option 2: Package forwarding
If the item you’re looking for on Amazon doesn’t ship to your country or are interested in additional shipping options, package forwarding services can be an alternative option.
These services provide you with a US-based address where you can have your Amazon order shipped. From there, the package forwarding service will deliver to your country.
Pros/Cons of Package Forwarder
- A great option for products on Amazon that are NOT eligible for international delivery.
- You’ll enjoy greater flexibility in shipping when you can choose the shipping carrier and the timeline for your delivery.
- It can sometimes be more expensive than shipping directly through Amazon’s international shipping service.
- You may still be responsible for paying import duties upon the arrival of your package unless the forwarding company has included these fees in their service charge.
Other factors to consider
In addition to product eligibility for international shipping, there are several other essential factors to consider when considering a purchase from Amazon, including shipping costs, estimated delivery times, and the returns policy.
So, let’s take a look at each in detail.
If you’re thinking about getting Amazon products delivered to countries worldwide, it’s worth considering that the shipping costs can vary. Factors like the type of items, product size, and weight play a role in determining these costs.
Generally, standard delivery ranges from $2.99 to $12.99, while premium delivery falls between $9.99 and $39.99, depending on the destination country.
Most countries offer two main delivery methods: Standard and Priority. However, some countries also have an Expedited option, which is typically faster than Standard but less expensive than Priority.
When it comes to shipping products worldwide, the delivery time can vary due to various factors. These include the location, product availability, chosen shipping option, and any possible delays in customs or during transportation.
Amazon offers estimated business days for delivery based on the selected shipping method, providing you with an idea of when to expect your package.
Delivery estimates (country dependent):
Standard Shipping: Up to 7-30 working days, depending on the country
Expedited Shipping: Faster than Standard, but slower than Priority
Priority Shipping: Up to 4-14 working days, depending on the country
You can view the shipping costs during checkout, and tracking information is readily available within your Amazon account. This way, you can easily monitor the progress of your package as it makes its way to you.
When it comes to returning products shipped to countries worldwide, Amazon generally provides a 30-day return policy for eligible items. To initiate a return and request a refund, simply go to your Amazon account dashboard and follow the necessary steps.
However, keep in mind that certain items, like digital downloads or prepaid cards, may be nonreturnable. It’s always a good idea to review the return policy for any specific item you’re considering purchasing to avoid any surprises.
