Re: How to claim back VAT from online purchases.

Living in CH, ordering from amazon.fr and shipping to collection depot in Germany, would be possible to get VAT/TVA back?

The item is sold and shipped by Amazon EU S.a.r.L.

Does not look like there is a process for amazon.fr: https://www.amazon.fr/gp/help/custom...deId=201894450


But check if the item is also sold on amazon.de because they have an established process for that:
https://www.amazon.de/gp/help/custom...deId=201999220

Also compare the total price if shipped directly to Switzerland (excludes EU VAT, includes Swiss VAT) vs. the hasle to pickup the package in Germany. Unfortunately not all items are shipped to Switzerland.

They do not ship this particular item to Switzerland. Yeah, I have found it at amazon.de, unfortunately 53€ more expensive :\

There is no automated system existing for this, if you buy from a 3rd party you could contact them and ask if they are willing to do this, and how they would like to do such.
