You can also use Amazon.co.uk to do your shopping for some items if they are sold by Amazon EU sarl as then they are shipped from France and seem okay to ship to Switzerland.
I was able to purchase an Instant Pot 6 lt. this way last year through the UK site.

To the original poster, also keep in mind that if you order from other countries they often times will drop the Tax / VAT in their checkout process if they send it to Switzerland but if the amount is over about 65 Francs and it arrives here, the Swiss will then tax you. The minimum to pay is typically around 17 CHF or more depending on cost of the item. I ordered some items from the Netherlands a few weeks ago and total went over by .15 cents apparently and received a bill from DHL for 17 francs. I didn't end up saving any money vs. buying locally after that point.
