There are many online stores available online, but among all, Amazon is the world’s largest online stores, with several branches of local stores in different countries. Unfortunately, Norway does not have such store dedicated for Norway (Amazon Norway). However, the absence of Amazon Norway should not stop you from buying from this great store, and luckily Amazon.com actually ships internationally and below here is how.

Here are the different ways by which you can buy at Amazon:

Buying Items Not Available For International Delivery

First About The Amazon Global Program (Your Amazon Norway)

Amazon.com has a program called “Amazon Global Program”. This the program Amazon.com operates on your behalf to provide you: unique service and customs clearance, duty and tax estimation during checkout. With this program Amazon.com is fit to take orders from international customers/consumers and they also ship to most countries outside the U.S. including Norway with this program.

Buying Through the Amazon Global Program

If you take the link to the Amazon Global Program page, you will be directed to the page dedicated for this purpose, the page is also automatically set as “International Shipping.”

Now, from the page you can then move to the stage where you will have to search for items. On this page you’ll see several filters on the left column. Here you must check the box next to “Amazon Global Eligible” to confirm if the product is available for international delivery.

An important factor that must be considered is to check if the item is available for international delivery. You can be sure of this by looking for the phrase “This item is also available for shipping to select countries outside the U.S.” on the product description page.

Amazon Import fee deposit

Simply because you will be Importing Items from the USA to Norway, you will be charged for the importation fee. Based on Customs law of Norway there is an estimated Import Fee Deposit applied to orders sent to eligible countries thru Priority International Shipping (by Expedited or Standard International Shipping).

A new report from ForeSee reveals that Amazon is once again the most popular online destination with regards to customer satisfaction. The store that claims to have everything from A to Z is no stranger to being in first place in the online shopping survey as they have earned the honor for eight straight years.

Buying Items Not Available For International Delivery

It can be very frustrating when an online store does not have international shipping policy or the item you wish to buy at Amazon is not available for international delivery. This problem can be address using Freight Forwarder services.

 About Freight Forwarding Companies?

This companies are service companies and they are specialized in providing virtual USA shipping address to individual not based in the USA but will love to shop online.

Which Best Freight Forwarder do I recommend?

There are a couple of freight forwarders available, but from personal experience, 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.

And this is How it works

Freight forwarding services operate this way:

You can 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.

As soon as the account is confirmed and set up, Shipito will provide a distinctive USA street address. The address will look like this: Your name (address will be specified during registration) Suite # (box number) Torrance, AL 1203

Then you can start shopping online once you receive the address. Using the USA address as your shipping address is the most important while using this method?

Once your order as being processed the online store will now deliver it to your virtual address that being monitored by Shipito. The company will be notify you 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.

The company will show you several shipping options to Norway 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.

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.

And now we’ve come to an end. I have the feeling you’ll find the information above useful. Please share your experience about Amazon shopping in the comment section. Also, if you think this information will be of help to your friends, please share; sharing shows you care.
