Kindle shipping costs from USA

Hi guys,

I'm thinking about ordering the kindle 3 from amazon. I would order it from the American shop because the euro-dollar value change makes the order cheaper (at least for me, since I'm Italian). What I'm afraid of is the eventuality that shipping cost will be too high. I read in the forum about 20-30 dollars for shipping books or cd. Do you know if the same prices are valid for other kind of products? Anyone has already ordered the kindle from the U.S.A. shop from Switzerland?

Thanks for any advice,
Daniele

It was discussed here and here. In summary, you pay a flat shipping fee that includes all taxes.

I suggest that you go through the Amazon ordering process for your country and go all the way through until the order confirmation page. You will see the cost including shipping and a very good estimate of import taxes. You can cancel the order if it is too expensive for you or you wish to wait a bit longer before buying. Don't forget credit card charges (in my case 2%). You can still cancel even after you have made the order provided the order has not entered processing for shipping state.
