4 minute read
Let's face it, if you are reading this blog the odds are you are probably living in a country, in which there is no amazon delivery. In this blog we will dig into different methods of getting the desired product to Brazil :)
The internet has made it easier than ever for people from all over the world to buy products and items they cannot find in their home countries. The biggest online retailer that most shoppers think of when shopping internationally is Amazon.com. If you live in Brazil and have tried to buy something from Amazon, you probably know how difficult it might get. The problems can range from slow delivery in the best case to no delivery at all or damaged/broken product.
In this blog post, we will discuss different methods of buying a product on Amazon and having it delivered to you.
- Filter Amazon by delivery location
- Parcel Forwarders
Method 1: Filtering Amazon by delivery location
If you live in Brazil, in some cases Amazon will offer delivery to your address. It may take a while for the package to arrive and there might be some extra costs but at least it is possible.
Simplicity - you will only see the products, which are eligible to be delivered to your location.
Ease - you don't have to go outside of amazon.com
Limitations - only a fraction of listings are offering international delivery, that is why the majority of items will be disqualified from results.
Price - The costs of products can be higher due to importation fees and taxes.
Time - may take a while for an item to arrive, which is not ideal if you’re shopping for gifts. It takes ~3 weeks to get your order with direct delivery from an Amazon seller.
- Go to Your Account on amazon.com.
- Click Manage Address Book.
- Enter the Delivery Address.
- When searching for products, select the International Shipping filter option from the menu on the left side of the page to filter results.
- Buy the product.
- Fill in the customs paperwork, then it will be delivered to your home/post office.

Method 2: Parcel Forwarders
Parcel Forwarders allow customers to ship packages domestically through their own accounts - which is usually cheaper than going with Amazon's shipping rates.
Consumers are able to use parcel forwarding services like Shipito or MyUS as an intermediary between amazon.com and themselves. The service provider will order items on your behalf from Amazon then deliver them directly into Brazil.
Price - Most parcel forwarders will charge $25-$35 per package; although some may be more expensive depending on weight and size)
Variety - You can order any item listed on Amazon.
Time - If something goes wrong during transit it could take anywhere up to six weeks before your shipment arrives at its destination address.
