    I in error selected an voucher instead of the UK, I’m waiting to see if the company will re issue.

    However in the event of not being able to reissue how do I order from the DE site, I have tried to set up an account on DE site but it won’t allow me to proceed as I m using the same mobile number as my UK account . Any ideas it’s for e25

    log in from the same account. iv bought from gemany ,france, italy and spain amazon all from the same uk account

    the problem is you want 2 accounts with eh same no.

    On the app, Scroll to the bottom, into settings Select location and language and click German -English . Afaik there’s no free delivery on .de items destined for Ireland, I stand to be corrected on this

    Why would you set up a DE account?

    I just used the UK account, I don't recall doing anything bar change the language and probably currency as I pay Amazon with a UK debit card which of course is linked to a sterling account. All my buying in Ireland is done using sterling with the taxed euro equivalent only appearing at the very last point when ordering.

    I certainly didnt open a new account, I pay very few new vendors online because I have no mobile phone or smartphone. The trouble I have to go to is very memorable, so I know full well I have had no new Amazon account for at least ten years.

    Having said that, my DE purchase was maybe a year ago, so things might have changed due to Brexit being an ongoing disaster.

    Amazon are supposed to be setting up shop in Dublin, any news?

    thank you all, I’ll give these a try, I just thought I had to set up another account in order to use the voucher

    Slightly off topic but has anyone ever returned anything they bought from Amazon.DE. The package has to go back to Slovakia, I paid about 50 quid for it and the cheapest quote I'm getting to return it is 30 euro. Any suggestions how I can return it any cheaper?

    Had a similar situation last year when returning a €190 item. Hadn't even copped that the address was in Slovakia and sent it to Germany. Got notification it couldn't be delivered in Germany, got on to Amazon to get a German address and redirected it there no problem.

    The replacement for the same item had the same issue and I sent it back through Slovakia, €36 first time versus €48 the second, both of them refunded by Amazon once I sent on receipt for cost.

    Ordered a Vogels wall mount (for the LG CS6) from Amazon Germany late on Sunday night.

    Got an email today to say it has been dispatched and will be delivered TODAY. So must be shipping from Irish warehouse.

    It was nearly 20e delivery, but all in, was 90e cheaper than Amazon UK.

    Is it just me or has the availability improved a lot on the .DE site? I'm noticing a lot more products available for delivery to Ireland.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,263 ✭✭✭banchang

    Perhaps, but very little with Prime free delivery from DE. Delivery charges make it uneconomic. still best.

    I started using .de after Brexit, are there any customs issues with using the UK site?

  • Moderators, Motoring & Transport Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 21,844 Mod ✭✭✭✭bk

    No customs issues at all, it is all handled by Amazon.

    Only thing to watch out for is the price increases slightly when you go to check out, versus the price advertised up front. That is because the difference between UK and Irish VAT + any customs due.

    But the rule of thumb is, if you are happy with the checkout price, then that is all you pay.

  • Registered Users Posts: 39,699 ✭✭✭✭ohnonotgmail

    to be fair the price increased slightly before brexit as well. the increase isn't brexit related.

    Just be careful ordering from second party sellers if not fulfilled by Amazon. If they don't fill out the necessary form and attach it to your parcel customs/courier/an post will charge you directly. Amazon say they will fully reimburse you if this happens but I'd say you'll be made jump through hoops.

    Stick to sold/fulfilled by Amazon and you'll be grand.

    I was looking for a battery for my echo dot. But of course, Amazon won't deliver anything with a battery. Check all the stores UK, DE, etc.

    So, I ended up buying it for Aliexpress from Spain. Took about a week to arrive, and I **** you not, it came in Amazon packaging. With the usual Amazon smile logo.

    You can log into or or any of them with your same log in credentials that you use for - or just switch country in the app.

    Sometimes .de or .fr are WAY cheaper than the UK site for certain products. It's worth checking out. There's a delivery fee, but for example I was buying an electric toothbrush and it was nearly half the price on .fr

    Also, bought a frying pan on .de that was about 50 quid cheaper than on the UK site.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,263 ✭✭✭banchang

    Excellent site - never saw before. Thank you both !

    Does the Supersaver Tool just list 20 products each time?

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,690 ✭✭✭branners69

    Yes, you can use below which lets you pick categories but you can have too much choice just trying to spend €2.

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,007 ✭✭✭✭neris

    I started using the DE site after brexit because I thought there would be issues and delays. No problem with the DE site except if you try to buy from some of the sellers that arent Amazon they wont ship to Ireland

  • Registered Users Posts: 89 ✭✭ConorC1

    Cool thanks. Pics would be handy. Not sure why they dont have them

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,197 ✭✭✭Redrocket

    Often the price on DE with 8-10 euro delivery is the same as the UK price with "free delivery"

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,097 ✭✭✭Yggr of Asgard

    Often .it or .fr is even cheaper, always use haggelzone and if you combine multiple items it is even better.

  • Registered Users, Subscribers Posts: 13,343 ✭✭✭✭antodeco

    I had bought my coffee machine from DE. Was about €150 less than from the UK. Did the same for a robotic vaccum. Saved about €60. Random better prices!

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,662 ✭✭✭Doodah7

    Just on this. I am returning an item to Amazon DE and the return label clearly said Bremen in Germany. My registered receipt from the Post Office says Germany and it has just arrived in Slovakia!! Does anyone know what gives?

    I tried to join the DE Prime trial a while back and it still didn't include free shipping to Ireland. It's much of a muchnes for Amazon where things are sent from and returned to. As a european, prime would have more appeal if it wasn't country specific. Imagine if Amazon had a "Prime California" which didn't work when shopping in New York. Why does a global company like Amazon care if I buy something in Spain vs Germany?
