Re: Why does Amazon shun Switzerland?

It's not obvious, mind, and had me quite puzzled when I ordered something yesterday. Was 144eu with free delivery in France, so I selected the Swiss address just to see how much the postage would be only too see the base price reduced tp eu120 on the invoice, with eu11 import charges added (postage was still free as it happens). I thought there was an error until I realised that they'd just dropped the price by the equivalent in the French VAT.
Didn't they leave out Swiss VAT? Unless this was a book or something else subject to reduced VAT (2.5% or so) there may be a problem waiting to happen.
