Here are the ways you can buy items at Amazon from Sweden:

The Amazon Global Program is Amazon Sverige

Amazon Sverige

Amazon USA and Amazon UK runs an international campaign called the “Amazon Global Program”. The program is for non-US and non-UK residents for them to be able to shop at these famous online stores.

Shopping Through the Amazon Global Program

Amazon Sweden
  1. On the Amazon Global page, the search box filter is automatically set at “International Shipping.” Therefore, everything listed on that page, without you altering the filters, are most likely available for global shipping.
  2. In the alternative, you can tick on the check box next to “Amazon Global Store” on the left sidebar of the page to sort all products available for international delivery.
  3. If you happen to visit a particular product page, the Check Out box will also show “This item ships to Sweden“.

The Delivery/Shipping Rates And Times

Based on how fast you need the items delivered, the delivery rate and speed is an important factor to think about before choosing a shipping method.   The cost to ship items from Amazon to Sweden varies by item, weight and shipping option.

To get your cost calculated you add the “Per shipment” cost and the “Per Item” together. 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. Below are the current shipping speed and rates that Amazon charges for deliveries to Sweden:

Amazon SE: Priority Shipping Cost [2018]

For Books, the rate is $5.49. For Kindle, you will add $5.99. And for the rest, spare $4.99 per pound.

The Import fee deposit on Amazon

As this method is not really Amazon Sverige based in Sweden, another factor to consider is the importation costs and duties.

Amazon has an estimated Import Fee Deposit and you pay this when placing your order. This is applied to all orders sent internationally.

This fee is your responsibility and is charged based on the customs law of Sweden.

It is not impossible, however, that Amazon will collect more than what Sweden’s customs will charge. If the Import Fee Deposit is more than what Sweden charged, Amazon will automatically issue a refund of the excess and if the fees are more than the estimated amount, Amazon will charge you of the deficiency.

Importing Items Not Available For International Delivery

There are some items that is not available to be shipped internationally. You can address this problem by availing of the services of a Freight Forwarder.

 Use Freight Forwarding Service
