Have you ever wanted to order an item on Amazon and the following message appears: “This seller cannot ship the selected item to Switzerland” (you can also replace Switzerland with any other country outside the EU, Africa or Asia…)? Or to note that for some brands, prices in Switzerland are clearly more expensive than in France or Europe?
With the Internet, borders seem to have disappeared… Yet this is far from being the case for trade and import/export of goods…
This is the solution I have chosen:
There is a simple and effective way to circumvent these border limitation rules by using packet/mail forwarding services.
Just go to a site like www.colisexpat.com and in a few clicks (without even having to pay) your address in France, United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Spain and Italy is created!
Then, simply put the new address created as the shipping address in Amazon and you’re done!
For Colisexpat, the cost for a re-shipment to Switzerland is 4.90 EUR + shipping costs. For a standard package of 1 KG of size 40cm x 40cm x 40cm x 20cm it is necessary to count approximately 16 EUR, that is to say approximately 21 EUR in total (at the date of publication of this article).
There are many companies that offer this type of service. Just type “parcel forwarding” or “parcel forwarding” in Google.
This solution makes it easy to have packages delivered in Switzerland (or elsewhere) from anywhere in the world. In short, the world is yours!
