Question about Amazon.de

Hello friends,
How I can know without having to create an account on amazon, if a given item is sent to Switzerland or not?
I have understood that some items not sent. Does anyone know which?
I would like to buy some sports goods. Does anyone have purchased through Amazon?
Thanks in advance,
Frank.

Re: Question about Amazon.de

On amazon it depends if you are buying from Amazon itself or a third party vendor. Each vendor can have different restrictions. Just sign up as it is free and you won't know the shipping cost without doing so. While the item will most likely be cheaper, shipping and assocaited "fees" could take away a large chunk of the savings.

Re: Question about Amazon.de

If you want things to come to Switzerland - I thinked you might have changed your location. Could you perhaps change it in your profile too. Thanks.

Re: Question about Amazon.de

If your Shipping address is CH then it will not ship some of the things that you want. Usually from DE you can only ship BMVD (Books, Music, Video and DVD) to CH but apart from them it is hard because of Custom reasons.

Best alternative is ship to someone you know in DE and then go pick it up.

Re: Question about Amazon.de

If Switzerland was in the EU then there would be alot less problems with Amazon.

Re: Question about Amazon.de

and there would be a bunch of other things differently and we wouldn't have these wonderful conversations about Switzerland ... because... admit it... it's nice to be different.

Get over that you cannot order everything on Amazon.de or other stores. If you want electronics and you want them in Switzerland, go to Mediamarkt or Conrad Electronics. Even got a nice converter at Conrad to plug in my US home entertainment system. And then I bought some lingerie from Victoria Secret online, they had no problem shipping it to la Suisse and I had no problem paying the extra tax - because I just cannot get that stuff anywhere here! C'est la vie!
