How to Stop Being Afraid and Love Shopping on Amazon



According to the results of the last post, we found out that:

  • Delivery takes place bypassing the Russian Post through UPS / DHL;
  • Parcel arrives
  • in Moscow in 5 days;
  • for the Russian Federation Kindle is sold only in the version “without built-in advertising” and without accessories in a separate lot . Therefore, covers, for example, can be taken here .
  • Amazon pays for the services of a customs broker;
  • when ordering delivery to your work address, do not mention the name of the company, otherwise the recipient will be the company, not you, with all the consequences;
  • if your purchase is cheaper than 200 euros, including shipping costs, you have nothing to worry about;
  • if you want to make a purchase weighing up to 31 kg. and costing up to 1000 euros, including shipping costs, it is advisable for you to order it at an address in one of the cities on the list (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Vladivostok, Stavropol, Novorossiysk and Nizhny Novgorod). In this case, the following scenarios are available:
    1. most likely, you have nothing to worry about, and the purchase will be delivered to you without unnecessary problems;
    2. perhaps they will call you / write from UPS and ask them to send them a scanned printout of an electronic order receipt from Amazon, a signed contract for the provision of cargo transportation services and a copy of the passport.
    3. the most unlikely and worst option is a quest for independent customs clearance. Do not worry, with this instruction the process will take no more than 2 hours and will not be more difficult than going to the library.
  • it's Amazon! If you encounter any problems - delay, loss of parcel, additional customs fees, damage to the goods - the support service will come to your aid up to a full refund of the cost.
