Why don't you simply go to a shop and buy them ( at least the ones you can like batteries and toiletries )!!!
Thanks for the suggestion. To answer you, and as I already mentioned, I prefer not to, due to the inconvenience and how uncomfortable it is these days. Many bigger shops are closed right now, or portions of them are closed (e.g. the Migros here has many areas roped-off). By the time I go to 3 or 4 different shops to find the right kind of battery, hours have passed. I guess I could also ask exactly which shop to buy each individual item, but this kind of misses the point.

The point of my original question is: what online retailers exist for shoppers in Switzerland.

You could try https://www.brack.ch
for general stuff (website is in German or French) and https://www.nettoshop.ch for white goods. I've ordered from both and had no problems pre coronavirus but I imagine that their delivery dates are now a bit iffy like everywhere else.

I think Nettoshop ships appliances from Germany - they came with a German plug but you can get an adapter or just put a Swiss one on.

If you really need Amazon, you could use a German shopping address, such as https://meineinkauf.ch. Bear in mind that they charge for each parcel, so make sure multiple items get delivered as one.

Good luck!
Unclear how long we will have to wait before being allowed to cross the border freely. These sites look promising, thanks!
