It is a fact; we do not have an “Amazon Brazil” or an Amazon store that has a local presence in Brazil. Not withstanding, there are at least three ways by which Brazilian can buy at Amazon even if you are in Brazil.
Ways you can buy items at Amazon from Brazil (your Amazon Brazil)
1. By Through the Amazon Global Program;
3. Buy at Amazon.co.uk; and
2. Buying Items Not Available For International Delivery;
1. The Amazon Global Program
The program “Amazon Global Program” is the program Amazon.com operates on your behalf to provide you: duty and tax estimation during checkout, unique service and customs clearance. With this program, Amazon.com is fit to take orders from international consumers/customers and ship these in most countries outside the United States including Brazil. Amazon has dedicated a separate page in its online store where all the items that are available for international shipping and delivery are listed.
– Search and Buy
The link to the Amazon Global page will take you to the page where the search box filter is automatically set at “International Shipping.” In the process of 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.
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 Saudi Arabia, 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 Import fee deposit
The Import Fee Deposit is an estimated Fee applied to orders sent to Brazil through one of the three Shipping methods. The fee is your liability and is charged based on the customs law of Brazil and where exactly you intend to ship the items to, though the Customs may not collect the accurate fees. In case 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 shortage.
– About The Delivery/Shipping Rates And Times
Below are the current three (3) shipping speed and rates charged by Amazon for deliveries to Brazil:
Standard Shipping: This is the basic shipping method and the cheapest among three shipping options. Using this method, you can expect your items to be shipped to Brazil within 9-12 days. However, standard shipping is only accessible to limited categories of products.

2. Buy at Amazon.co.uk
Amazon.co.uk is one of the several international stores which Amazon has. Like Amazon.com, Amazon UK has its own international delivery policy. It’s true; the UK store also accepts and delivers orders directly to Brazil as well as other countries. This is accomplished through its own “Amazon Global Programme.”
What Product are Available for International Delivery.
For Brazilians, Amazon UK delivers directly to Brazil a selection of products under the following categories:
- Home Improvement
- Lawn and Garden
- Musical Instruments
- Office Products
Cost of Delivery and Customs to Brazil
The delivery cost varies depending on the classification of the item, its weight, dimensions, and the shipping option you prefer. The shipping fees costs for as little as GBP 4.58. For full list of shipping options and fees, please visit this page.
The international delivery policy of Amazon UK is similar to that of Amazon.com. Amazon UK also charges import fee deposits during check out. Also, the method of searching products available for international delivery is similar to that of Amazon Global. Import Fee Deposits and Searching Products have been discussed above.
3. Buying Items Not Available For International Delivery
Some products/items are not available to be shipped internationally. This restricted product can be bought and ship to Brazil using the freight forwarder service.
How Freight forwarders work.
Freight forwarders are service companies that provide virtual USA shipping address to people shopping online and are not based in USA. I can only explain that of Shipito.com because they have proved to be the most reliable among all available freight forwarders.
All You Need To Do
Is to create an account with them, don’t forget to choose a suitable plan out of the numerous plans available. (Shipito charges are from $8.50). After your account is confirmed and set up, you will provide a distinctive USA street address which you can start using to shop online once received. Using the USA address as your shipping address is the most important while using this method.
The online store will deliver your items to the address that’s being monitored by Shipito. From there you will be asked to initiate the shipping of items from the USA address to your real address in Saudi Arabia.
Using Shipito your 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.
