With The Amazon Global Program

With the “Amazon Global Program” Amazon.com provides you: unique service and customs clearance, duty and tax estimation during checkout. With this program, Amazon.com is fit to take orders from Denmark consumers/customers and ship these in most countries outside the U.S. including Denmark. A separate page is dedicated in its online store where all the items that are available for international shipping and delivery are listed.

Search and Buy By the Amazon Global Program

You will be directed to a page where the search box filter is automatically set at “International Shipping” through the link to the Amazon Global page.

While searching for items, several filters on the left column of the webpage will always appear. You can then tick on the check box next to “Amazon Global Eligible” to sort all products available for international delivery.

Finally in this process, when you are sure of what you need to buy, check the “Product Details” just to be sure that the product can be shipped to Denmark, and look for the sentence, “This item is also available for shipping to select countries outside the U.S.” this must appear on the product description page.

About The Delivery/Shipping Rates And Times

It is very important you consider the delivery rate and speed, simply because your orders will arrive based on the shipping level and speed you choose. The cost to ship items from individual product section to Denmark varies by item, shipment and shipping option. By adding the “Per shipment” cost and the “Per Item” cost is your cost calculated. In the case of item listed as terms of price per pound, check the weight on the item’s detail page to get the cost of  “Per item” cost.

Amazon Import fee deposit

The “Import Fee Deposit” is to be considered when shopping on Amazon.com. Amazon has an estimated Import Fee Deposit applied to orders sent to eligible countries thru Priority International Shipping (via Expedited or Standard International Shipping). This fee is your responsibility as the importer and is charged based on the customs law of Denmark, though the Customs may not collect the accurate fees. If the actual Import Fees are less than the Import Fees Deposit collected by Amazon, they will automatically issue a refund of the excess and if the fees are more than the estimated amount, Amazon always charge the deficiency.

How About Importing Items Not Available For International Delivery

If you find an item on Amazon, but the item is not available for international delivery. You can address this challenge using the Freight Forwarder service.

 What Freight Forwarding does

Freight forwarders are basically service companies that provide virtual USA shipping address to people shopping online and are not based in USA. They provide the address that can be used when ordering at an online store, and when order is shipped to this address, the company will then forward the item to your actual address.

The Freight Forwarder Company I recommend

There are quite a few freight forwarders out there, but based on my experience with them, Shipito.com has proved to me to be the most reliable among them. Not only does it provide reliable service, it offer inexpensive fees. It charges a minimum fee of only $8.50 per shipment.

How the process works

Freight forwarding services operate this way:

  1. You create an account with a freight forwarding company (recommended: Shipito). In the case of Shipito, numerous plans from a per shipment basis account to a premium monthly plan account.
  2. Shipito will provide a distinctive USA street address as soon as the account is confirmed and set up. Once you receive the address, you can start shopping online. Using the USA address as your shipping address is the most important while using this method?
  3. Once your order as being processed the online store will now deliver it to your virtual address that being monitored by Shipito. You will be notified by the company as soon as the items arrive and you will be asked to initiate the shipping of the same from the USA address to your real address.
  4. The company will show you several shipping options to Denmark during this process. The forwarding fees and the postage will be calculated. After the payment of these fees the item will be delivered to you.
  5. You item may be delivered next to your doorsteps within as little as 3 days depending on the shipping option you choose and the clearance process in customs.

Payments Methods

I know you might be concerned with the payment methods on Amazon. As of present, consumers based in Denmark can make use of the following payment methods in order to pay for purchased goods at Amazon Global.
