Amazon, b*** Amazon!

I’ve tried several times to buy things on Amazon. Filled out reams of information, address, credit card details etc etc only to get the message ‘sorry, cannot ship to your destination’.

And on eBay I didn’t even get that far – it seems that PayPal is the only way to go and I’ve had endless problems with PayPal in Turkey.
Is it just me or do other people have this problem?

Any advice greatly will be greatly appreciated.

Question Re: Amazon, b*** Amazon!

It's all very strange, maybe time to sign the petition ..

Amazon.com.tr for Turkey - Sign the Petition

Are there perhaps any Turkish equivalents of Amazon (in English language)?

Re: Amazon, b*** Amazon!

Jaycey, have exactly the same problem, but fortunately have several friends in the UK whose addresses I use for delivery and also have a UK bank account and credit card, which seems to be the only way around the problem.

Re: Amazon, b*** Amazon!

I've found that if you're buying direct from Amazon, books, cd's etc, using a UK bank card and an account/email address set up in the UK, then there's usually no problem. However, many items on Amazon are sourced from other companies, none of whom seem willing to deliver to Turkey.

I know exactly how frustrating it is Jaycey, I've been there myself! Like other TLFers, I get things delivered to a friend in the UK who then posts it on to me here.

Re: Amazon, b*** Amazon!

How about eBay - has anybody living in Turkey had any success there?

And PayPal? When I called their office in Istanbul
they told me they weren’t there to give customer support!
