Amazon.com in Russia
Amazon seems reluctant to set up a branch in Russia – just like e-Bay in Russia
it is not to be expected anytime soon. You do not have to be concerned about this as it does not restict you. Any Russian-speaker can sign up for Amazon.com, add their shopping to the cart and pay with their credit cards. However, Amazon.com won’t ship the many items to Russia, and specifically will not ship musical records, games, electronics and used articles.
But even if the seller agrees to ship your order there are other considerations. Firstly, Amazon.com won’t let you consolidate your shopping resulting in parcels shipping separately thus incurring unnecessarily high international shipping costs. Secondly, it takes an expert to master all the ins and outs of Amazon shipping. Thirdly, you will be unable to check the quality of your order before it is exported - Amazon does not offer this type of service, nor will it email you photos of your order or provide additional packaging. Considering this, it makes sense to use Polar Express - it's the most economical option as you have all your shopping delivered right to your door, as a single parcel, from a single warehouse where the integrity and quality of the shipment can be check prior to shipping.
