Amazon is the biggest and most recommended online store in USA, no doubt because of its array of products. There is nothing you seek to buy that can’t be found on Amazon with just a click, from books, CDs, shoes, clothes, handbags, wall papers, decors, beddings, baby food, baby stroller/walker, car seater and lots more, in fact the logo Amazon symbolizes it (A – Z).
From experience Amazon is one online store everyone loves to shop from and this has gone beyond USA. Everyday all over the worlds there is someone buying an item from Amazon; this includes Africans, especially from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and South Africa, majorly because 98% of the items are good qualities and sold by verified Amazon sellers.
Can I Shop Using My VISA/Master Card?
Now this is one question so many customers ask us, and the good news is yes you can shop using your local bank cards (VISA, Verve or MasterCard). It’s that easy now on Amazon, so if your card is declined on other online stores, just go check out the product on Amazon and buy it. You can also use a PayPal account to shop right on Amazon. But here is the deal breaker for some items you can’t ship to Nigeria and other African countries, but that is no longer a problem!
You Can Ship from Amazon like A resident of USA.
Now you are wondering how? Well just because you are Nigeria, Ghana or Kenya does not mean you can’t enjoy those great discounts you see online. Amazon can ship to Nigeria, but for cost effective reasons it is better to reduce cost of shipping by using a USA address from Shoptomydoor shipping service, which can accommodate any quantity of items or size of packages.
Another advantage of using Shoptomydoor is that Amazon will not deliver some high value items like Laptops, house appliances, etc but with Shoptomydoor, you can buy those items and have them delivered.
Shoptomydoor gives you a free USA warehouse address and that means you can shop immediately from Amazon. Doesn’t that sound great?
