Is there a way to filter those companies or entities of Amazon that will ship to CH? I'm still finding it a little hit 'n' miss e.g. some items only reveal their lack of Swiss delivery when you go to your basket and try and complete the order. I have German Prime if that helps.
No, there is an "international delivery" option but it doesn't really work.
I just filter on "sold by amazon" and/or "eligible for free delivery by amazon".

I ordered something a couple of months back that was below 65CHF and wasn't charged Swiss VAT by Amazon. This week I ordered something for 45 eur and *was* charged Swiss VAT by Amazon. Seems they might be adding VAT on all sales now?
With the VAT thing, it seems Amazon is charging Swiss VAT on *all* sales that are sold and supplied by Amazon regardless of the amount.
No VAT is applied for items shipped by, but not sold by, Amazon, provided they're below the threshold.
I just ordered four things in one order, only one had VAT applied.

No, I only have .com and prime free shipping at .it or .de works fine. Prime Video is another matter due to IP...
I usually buy from Amazon .de .fr .it
I have just subscribed Prime trial version in .fr but .de seems not recognizing it
Anyone has similar experience?

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

Separately, my amazon prime France account, allows me to access the prime tv/movie streaming service here in Switzerland with zero issues...

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

About amazon customer support and returns… I'm having an email exchange with them right now… JUST SUCKS! They are replying to the wrong items, somehow I'm talking now to Amazon UK for some reason and they are telling me that I should talk to Amazon Germany…

They are just a mess.

Incidentally, the first thing I then sent to the UK, declared it as a used item at half the value and all in it was 2/3rd the price of buying in the UK.
Something weird is going on with this forum, or at least smmgoal.

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

That's really bizarre. That post up there* that is now saying it's by "smmgoal" is actually a post that I had made. I have no idea who or what "smmgoal" is.


*The one that says: "If you set your default shipping address to your address here in CH, I *think* that should help filter out the sellers that do not ship here (but I'm not entirely sure) -- or at least not prioritize those sellers in the search results."

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

I just thought I'd mention that "Amazon Prime Day" is tomorrow and Tuesday (June 21 and 22). I guess I've never taken advantage of that before, but apparently they're supposed to have a lot of good deals for Prime members. It starts at midnight tonight, and it's for all Amazon sites (amazon.de, amazon.co.uk, etc.).
