Amazon account region

I noticed that my amazon account region/country is still set to United States.

Since I want English language content, I was happy to leave it like this. Did anyone change this to Switzerland and does it make any difference?

Amazon Prime? Amazon Kindle? Amazon shopping?

They're not all the same.

Re: Amazon account region

I changed to Amazon.de so I can buy kindle books with my Swiss credit card. I can still get everything in English.

And of course, its not a good idea to use your Swiss card anyway as there are FX fees to pay - better to have transferwise, revolut or use Neon.
