Apologies if it's been asked before; If buying a book from Amazon UK (€17 with free delivery), will An Post still charge a €10 handling fee?
Wake me up when it's all over.

I have a complaint to make and despite trawling through their site I cant find an email address for it. I did try [email protected] but got an automatic "no reply" email advising they no longer replied to emails sent to that address.
Anyone know of an email address or even a physical one for sending a complaint to?

Import fees deposit is Irish VAT, UK VAT will have been removed. At that value you won't pay any more, in fact you may get a nominal refund in a few months time. I recently got a 31c refund!

I think the current situation is that on orders over the 22e fee, you are subject to both UK and Irish vat. Certainly that's what I am presented with when buying. Paying both jurisdictions vat charges.

I ordered something off amazon a couple of months ago. It hadn't been dispatched after 3 or 4 weeks so I cancelled the order.
Would there be any point ordering it again or do you think it would be the same deal this time?

Was it "temporarily out of stock"? I've ordered a good few times when it said that. The fastest was a week, the longest was about two months. I've never had to cancel it.
Does it show a delivery date now? If it does then you should be ok to order it.
Hi guys, I'm trying to order a Fire HD Kids tablet for my daughter's birthday, but when I try to order from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.de I'm told delivery can't be made to my address (standard Irish street address). But I can order a regular full adult's tablet no bother. The chat support was useless. He said it was Brexit-related, but when I asked him why I could order an adult tablet, or why Amazon.de had the same issue, he told me to contact Amazon.de.
Anyone have any ideas what the problem is?
I’ve ordered an item from Amazon UK directly that is temporarily out of stock with an estimated delivery date of by September 6th. I did not expect to be charged in full already but note that they are charging for items after 5 days if not shipped. Is this a new/recent practice? See this: “When you place an order with Amazon, we may contact your payment card's issuing bank to confirm that your credit card has a valid number and hasn't been reported as lost or stolen. This is communicated by an authorisation of the full order amount. However, we don't proceed with the charge until your items dispatch or for five days, whichever comes first. This is a security measure to protect our customers.
If you cancel your order before being charged, the bank may hold the authorisation on your card for up to ten business days.
If you've been charged for an item, refunds can take up to seven business days to post to your bank account.”
Hi folks, quick question, last time I ordered from Amazon UK in June they displayed the import fees & VAT etc when placing an order.
I was looking at something tonight (Dispatched and sold by Amazon) and that seems to be gone now, just a cost for the item. Have Amazon stopped offering that service and will I get hit for VAT if I order from them?
Also, in the Other Sellers on Amazon area, there's an option to buy from Amazon EU instead. Would that be a better option?
You should see underneath the Order Total a line that says "Order totals include VAT. See details". If you hover over or click on See details it will give you the breakdown.
Amazon EU don't ship to us (or didn't anyway). It's setup for the Brits to get things.
When you say amazon EU, do you mean Amazon. de/es/it/fr? Just change the .co.uk after amazon to the correct country that it mentions.
https://www.amazon.es/dp/B07B3WPRZW/ - for Spain
https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07B3WPRZW/ - for Germany
No tax added for any of the EU sites, but they do often have a higher shipping fee. Still should work out roughly the same price. All amazons will ship here, and always have.
But individual sellers on amazon, might not.
Hagglezon.com is a good site for checking prices across European amazons.
No I don't, as I said it's in the other sellers field on Amazon.co.uk
"Sold by: Amazon EU" will not be delivered to an Irish Address at least in my experience.
Add it to your basked for fun and try to check out, you should get a notification during checkout, that your Irish address is not valid for this as the seller does not ship to this address.
Never heard of sold by Amazon EU. Kinda taken aback by that. The website redirects to aboutamazon.eu
As far as I understand (and open to correction), sold by "Amazon EU" gives customer in the UK access to stock and delivery from the EU rather than the UK warehouse. This includes all UK customs/VAT and the shipment is coming from Europe.
Saves them from ordering from .de etc. This is facilitated via the German Amazon branch. This is why .co.uk won't ship those to Ireland.
If you buy an e book from amazon do you have to have cloud kindle* or some program from amazon to read it. Is there any way to just get a pdf?
*whatever it is called
