Are you a resident of Poland who’s been eyeing some must-have items on Amazon?

This how-to guide provides an overview of ordering from Amazon to Poland locally or with international delivery.

Does Amazon ship to Poland?

Yes, Amazon offers shipping to Poland through its AmazonGlobal service from the US and its local delivery service from Amazon Poland.

However, not all products are eligible for international shipping to Poland. This depends on various factors, including marketplace seller restrictions, weight restrictions, and local customs import regulations.

The local Amazon.pl (PL) offers quicker delivery to Poland than Amazon.com (US), although it may have a more limited product inventory.

Your store choice should depend on the product availability and willingness to wait for delivery.

Two options for shipping Amazon products to Poland.

  1. Direct from their website (Amazon.com or Amazon.pl)
  2. Using a package forwarding company

Option 1: Ship Amazon direct to a Poland address

Amazon US offers international shipping to Poland but only on eligible products via Amazon.com (US) or local shipping from Amazon.pl (PL).

Shipping Restrictions

If you’re planning on shipping items to Poland, be aware of potential restrictions that may apply to particular products.

This includes any size restrictions for shipping and local customs rules that may impact the delivery.

Check with the local customs office or consult Polish import restrictions for information on prohibited or restricted items.

Import Duties

If you purchase products on Amazon for international delivery, they estimate your import duties and add them to the final price as an import fee deposit.

This is a nice perk of the Amazon checkout process compared to other online marketplaces or package forwarding services, as it lets you know the duties upfront.

Check if Poland imposes import duties on imported items to avoid surprises upon arrival!

Returns Policy

It’s great that Amazon offers a 30-day return policy on eligible products if you’re using international shipping to Poland.

This means that if you change your mind about the product, you can spend it back on them!

Although some items on Amazon may be non-returnable, such as digital downloads or prepaid cards.

Option 2: Package Forwarder

If you cannot find the item you want on Amazon’s direct shipping options to Poland, or if you’re looking for alternative shipping methods, consider using a package forwarding service.

These services offer you a US-based address where you can have your Amazon order delivered.

Once the package arrives at this address, the forwarder will take care of the shipping to Poland on your behalf.

They can handle tasks like consolidating packages, managing customs documentation, and arranging international shipping, ensuring a seamless experience.

Package forwarding services might have additional fees associated with their services, such as consolidation, repackaging, or storage fees.
