Re: How to claim back VAT from online purchases.

Lots of interesting info on this thread. Thanks everyone that is contributing and the OP for starting it off.

Regarding Amazon.de and what they ship to Switzerland, I found the page:
http://www.amazon.de/gp/help/custome...&nodeId=505554

Regarding Switzerland, they charge starting at 3.25 for delivery (plus a price per kg) of items other than books as long as it is below the 20 Eur threshold, and it has the following note:

** Free delivery is not available for certain other items from our Elektronik & Foto (Electronics and Photo), Küche, Haus & Garten (Kitchen, House & Garden), Drogerie & Bad (Health & Personal Care), Parfümerie & Kosmetik (Beauty), Bekleidung & Schuhe (Apparel & Shoes), Baumarkt & Auto (Tools & Automotive), Spielwaren (Toys), Bürobedarf (Office Products), Lebensmittel & Getränke (Grocery) and Sport & Freizeit (Sports & Leisure) shops.
Certain items from these shops cannot be dispatched via our regular couriers due to their size or nature. We offer a special delivery service for these items. In addition, certain items from these shops cannot be dispatched to all countries.

Given that is most of their departments (if not all other than books) I think one just has to check on a case by case basis. And save delivery costs by going over 20 EUR, which isn't that hard.
