I believe orders above a certain amount, which varies depending on the product are delivered free without prime membership.
And all books are free delivery.
Orders over €49 get free shipping to Switzerland provided the items are eligible for shipping to Switzerland in the first place. Plus free delivery of books

Soon Swiss VAT will be charged by the online retailer so customs will have nothing to collect and Swiss Post will no longer be able to charge their exorbitant fee. I thought it very petty that they would add 3 centimes for advancing the money!

This should have come into force already but, surprise, surprise, Swiss Post couldn't get their systems in place so it's been pushed back to Jan 2019.
Hi, where the news about Jan 2019 has been published?

Cheers

All I can find is about the Swiss VAT:

"From 1 January 2019, companies such as Amazon will be required to charge Swiss VAT, even on low value items."

I can't see anything saying Amazon Prime for Switzerland has been delayed until Jan 2019.

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

I hoped to read that it was all sorted out and I could happily shop on Amazon and have everything delivered to me. Bummer

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

Well, lets see how it turns out. I am still getting a lot of "Dieser Artikel kann nicht in die Schweiz geliefert werden." - just got one on a product that I ordered a while ago. Hopefully it is just temporary, like an "adjustment time".

I do actually buy most of my stuff (food, clothes) in Switzerland, but I still like to be able to buy EU stuff and having it delivered to my CH Address with reasonable costs.

It's obviously not active yet as the article is only from a few days ago.

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

I sometimes shop in DE & US amazon, when the direct delivery is not possible - I just use meineinkauf or parcelbound...

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

I'd like to know too. Prime Video - does it work here yet ( did a trial last year and it didn't yet!) . Prime shipping (free premium shipping) available yet?

Please update if you have used it, or post a link to something more recent than the 2017 article from lenews.

thanks!

Prime Videos work on our Fire TV. Yet nothing about delivery. If it happens I will get it.

Re: Amazon Prime [delivery] coming to Switzerland

Anybody have experience of these faster deliveries?

My experience is amazon.de deliveries are taking longer and longer! Of course I am a limited sample and I might just be unlucky!

I wouldn't know as I have the stuff delivered to a German address. (and I'm not a prime-member, what ever that is supposed to benefit me).

But what I do notice is that when I place an order, the goods can easily be delivered from 5 different places = they trickle in and are kind of difficult to keep track on. So no need to plan my trip to Germany when I place the order
(The weirdest thing last time: The thing from China arrived first).

The article I quoted said "He expected the contract to be operational this spring."

Do you know when it will be operational?
