ordering from amazon.com
« on: December 16, 2007, 12:06:33 PM »
my friend told me that amazon offers COD. Its just that I don't know what to put in the address line. When I entered my address, "We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination." is displayed. So I thought I might entered the wrong format of the address.

Address Line 1 (Street address, P.O. box, company name, c/o)
Address Line 2 (Apartment, suite, unit, building, floor, etc.)

if anyone here already has ordered from amazon.com as is living here in the Philippines, can please give an example?  :happy:

for an example address, 6-B Amayan St., Project 3, Quezon City.

also, how should my phone number be? with 02 first?

thanks in advance..  :happy: :silly:

I might be wrong but I don't think Amazon offers COD service in the Philippines.

Its mostly just these that you can buy:
The following items can be shipped to almost all destinations outside the U.S.:

    * books*
    * DVDs
    * music
    * VHS videos

and just like lahat said, I dont think they offer COD.

Amazon only offers COD in the U.S. and its territories.
Since they need to use the U.S. Postal Service for it.

The reason why we're not listed as a place where these US stores deliver is because of those goddamn carders.

Any ideas on how much taxes (if there are) will be applied for Amazon purchase of, say, USD260?  Planning to buy tablet for my wife and will pay using PayPal (if that's even possible).

I guess it depends in the city you're located in.. I've ordered a lot from amazon, and I live in Daly City, CA, no tax.. if you have relatives living here you could prolly ask em to order it for you.. just a thought

You can pay with a local credit card from Amazon.  The problem is the shipping.  You can have it shipped to a relative or friend in the US and just have it shipped here in a balikbayan box.

The amount of tax charged depends upon many factors, including the identity of the seller, the type of item purchased, and the destination of the shipment.

Items sold by Amazon.com LLC, or its subsidiaries, and shipped to destinations in the states of Kansas, Kentucky, New York, North Dakota, or Washington are subject to tax.

yup. No CA sales tax if you order direct from amazon. wala sila yata facilities sa CA. If you buy from a CA-based seller using amazon, you pay sales tax. This is why I'm still hoping apple starts allowing the ipad to be sold by amazon, para tax-free.

Yeah it's Amazon that doesn't want to sell the iPad because they have their own competing product. Apple has nothing to lose from Amazon selling their stuff, so shutting off another sales channel really makes no sense. Amazon, on the other hand would lose potential sales of the Kindle if they sold the iPad.

You pay sales tax if your delivery address is in the same state as the seller; if you are in CA and buy from NY there is no sales tax.

Every state has it's own percentage of sales tax with CA posting a high of  8.75%. Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon does not assess sales taxes.

There is no sales tax  if you ship outside the US but you have to be registered with the Board of Equalization and present your registration number to the seller  for sales tax  exemption.

^ sales tax in CA is different in every city/county:
ex. San Diego 8.75%, LA 9.75%, SF 9.5%
