This article is for people wanting to shop on Amazon from Portugal, your best bet is to use Amazon.es. Items will be delivered often as fast as they are in Spain and if you have a Prime account, shipping is still free. Another option is Amazon.de which can take slightly longer to deliver, however, they will deliver to Portugal and the shipping is often free with Prime.

Amazon.es in Portugal

Amazon.es is Amazon's US online store for Spain. Like on Amazon.com, you can buy things by putting them in your basket and going through the checkout process. Amazon takes many different kinds of payments, like credit cards, debit cards, and Amazon gift cards.

In Spain, Amazon offers free delivery on orders over €29 and delivery options, such as standard delivery, express delivery, and Amazon Prime, which offers free, fast delivery for an annual fee. Amazon.es also has customer service in Spanish and different return and exchange options for customers who aren't happy with their purchases.

Basically is the same as amazon.com but for the Spanish market.

Amazon.de in Portugal

Amazon.de is the same as amazon.com but for the German market. Since is inside of the European Union and all the shop charge in Euros some of them will ship to Portugal, however, the shipping is likely to be more expensive than shipping from amazon.es

Apart from that, it's the same shop as the US online store and it offers the same services including Amazon Prime, which provides free shipping, streaming of movies and TV shows, and other benefits for a fee.

Other European Amazons

It's possible to shop at the Italian, and French Amazon. However, the faster and cheaper option is always going to be Amazon.es. If you type Amazon.pt, you will be redirected to Amazon.es, which is a good indication that is Amazon's preference for Portugal customers.

Non-European Amazons

We do not recommend purchasing from Amazon UK or Amazon US, since shipment will be delayed and import taxes must be paid.

Frequently asked Questions about Amazon in Portugal

What is the cost of delivery to Portugal from Amazon US?

The cost of Amazon deliveries to Portugal depends on the size and weight of the products being transported, the delivery address, and the shipping speed selected.

Amazon.com normally charges a basic cost plus an extra fee dependent on the package's weight for regular shipping. The current basic pricing for normal shipping to Portugal is $9.99 for the first item, with extra charges dependent on the package's weight. A product weighing between 1 and 2 pounds (0.45 kg and 0.9 kg) would cost an extra $5.99 to send to Portugal.

Additionally, Amazon has expedited delivery alternatives, such as Priority and Priority Express, which can be more expensive than normal shipping but deliver products more quickly. The price of these choices will depend on the package's size, weight, and delivery location. Notably, these costs are subject to change and may differ based on the exact products being transported and the current currency rate between the US dollar and the Euro. To receive an exact shipping estimate to Portugal, it is best to add the desired products to your Amazon shopping basket and then pick your delivery destination to view the various shipping choices and their related prices.

How do I change the language on Amazon?

Yes, you can change the language on Amazon by selecting a different language from the dropdown menu on the Amazon website. The language options available will depend on the specific Amazon website you are using.

To change the language on Amazon, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Amazon website you want to use (such as Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, or Amazon.de).
  2. Look for the language dropdown menu, which is usually located in the upper right corner of the page.
  3. Click on the dropdown menu and select the language you want to use from the list of options.
  4. The website will refresh and the text and menus will be displayed in the new language.

It's worth knowing that not all pages and features on Amazon are available in all languages. Some pages or features may still be displayed in the default language for the website you are using.

Do Amazon Hub Lockers exist in Portugal?

Unfortunately, Portugal does not yet have Amazon Hub Lockers yet.

Will Amazon deliver to a hotel or Airbnb in Portugal?

Yes, Amazon can deliver to a hotel or Airbnb in Portugal. When placing an order on Amazon, you can enter the hotel or Airbnb address as the delivery address. Amazon will then deliver the package to that address, and it will be up to the hotel or Airbnb staff to ensure that you receive the package.

It's worth noting that some hotels and Airbnb properties have policies in place regarding the delivery of packages to their guests. For example, the hotel or Airbnb may require that packages be delivered to the front desk or reception area, rather than to the guest's room. It is always a good idea to check with the hotel or Airbnb staff about their policies for receiving packages before placing an order on Amazon.

It's also worth noting that Amazon may not offer all of its delivery options to every location. For example, some rural or remote areas may not be eligible for same-day or next-day delivery. To find out what delivery options are available to a specific address in Portugal, you can enter the address in the delivery address field when placing an order on Amazon and see what options are available.

Does Amazon deliver to Azores?

Yes, Amazon can deliver to the Azores, a group of islands located in the North Atlantic Ocean and belonging to Portugal. When placing an order on Amazon, you can enter a delivery address in the Azores, and Amazon will ship the package to that address.

However, it's worth noting that Amazon's delivery options and fees may vary depending on the location in the Azores. Some rural or remote areas may not be eligible for same-day or next-day delivery, and the cost of shipping may be higher to certain locations. To find out what delivery options are available to a specific address in the Azores, you can enter the address in the delivery address field when placing an order on Amazon and see what options are available.

It's also worth noting that some items may not be available for delivery to the Azores due to size, weight, or other restrictions. If you are unable to place an order for a particular item because it is not available for delivery to the Azores, you may be able to find the item from a different seller on Amazon or from another online retailer.

To recap, your best option is buying on Amazon.es almost 98% of the retailers will ship to Portugal.
