Does Amazon Deliver to Turkey?

Hello TLF-ers,

I'm having a mare trying to find out how to order a book from Amazon - I want to place order from here in UK, deliver to friend in Adana. Amazon website says they deliver to Turkey, but I placed order using Turkish address given to me, got error message saying "we don't deliver to Turkey".

Phoned Amazon "customer services", took about 15 minutes to communicate book title even(!) then epic fail in finding a non-existent reference number, operator insisted I should be able to see it; however all I could offer were 10 and 13 digit ISBN numbers, neither of which would do apparently. In the end operator said Amazon don't ship to Turkey, but suspect maybe just to get rid of me! Can't believe Amazon are missing a market as big as Turkey?

Can anybody help me in my mission?

Many thanks,

Debbie

Re: Does Amazon Deliver to Turkey?

I spoke to amazon cust svs & tey said that if it comes from them then they do ship to Turkey ,but sometimes although the items are on amazon they go direct from the supplier & they may have shipping restrictions . If you call them ad tell them what you want they will tell you if it is a restricted item . [free phone from UK ] when you get through ignore all till they put you through & then ask for cust svs .

Re: Does Amazon Deliver to Turkey?

I have had many deliveries to Datca in Turkey, mainly books, ordered from Turkey but using my Amazon account opened while I was still in the UK, and a UK bank debit card. Have also done orders from Turkey for delivery to the Canary Islands to my sister, books and DVDs, without any problem.

However, as Evo80 points out, some products are out-sourced to companies that do not deliver to Turkey. I recently wanted a case for my iPad which had to be delivered to a UK address and then posted on to me here, a bit of a pain but not impossible. Remember that orders need to be under 75 euros ( I think that's correct???) or there will be trouble with Turkish customs, also that many products cannot be imported without paying tax, electrical goods for example.

Re: Does Amazon Deliver to Turkey?

Hi Debbie, if you are in the UK the easiest method would be to have the item delivered to you there then just post it on to your friend in Turkey.

I have found that even on items that Amazon will deliver to Turkey the carriage costs are so high that it isn't worth the hassle. Example a cover for my phone - cost 3.99 Amazon carriage charge 8

Re: Does Amazon Deliver to Turkey?

I had a DVD sent from Amazon to Turkey. Sent as a 'present' to my husband (they will only send to me at my registered UK address). No hassles and they didn't charge me VAT which more or less negated the postage.
