Can You Order Direct from Amazon in Bangladesh?

This is the million-dollar question, isn’t it? The answer is a bit…well, fuzzy.  While Amazon offers international shipping,  not all products qualify for delivery in Bangladesh.  Some sellers might restrict shipping to specific regions due to various reasons like weight, size, or legal limitations.

For example, if you are looking to buy an Xbox controller from Amazon then you won’t be able to order it directly from there as they won’t ship the goods in Bangladesh. On the contrary, if you are willing to buy a TP link router, then you will be able to place the order directly.

Step 1 – Set Up Your Amazon Account

Step 3 – Choose a Shipping Address

After finding the product, add it to your cart. Next, click on Proceed to checkout. On the next window, first, provide your address where you want to receive the parcel.

Drawbacks of Ordering Directly from Amazon in Bangladesh

While ordering directly from Amazon in Bangladesh is possible, there are several drawbacks to be aware of:

Higher Costs

One of the biggest drawbacks of ordering directly from Amazon in Bangladesh is the higher costs associated with international shipping and import duties. These additional fees can significantly increase the overall cost of your purchase, making it less cost-effective.

Limited Selection

Not all products on Amazon are available for shipping to Bangladesh. The selection of items you can order directly is limited, which can be frustrating if you’re looking for a specific item that’s not eligible for delivery to your location.

Slower Delivery Times

International shipping can take much longer than domestic shipping, which means you may have to wait several weeks or even months to receive your order. This can be especially inconvenient if you need the item urgently.

Customer Support Challenges

If you encounter any issues with your order, such as a missing or damaged package, dealing with Amazon’s customer support from Bangladesh can be challenging due to language barriers and time zone differences.

Alternative Ways to Order from Amazon in Bangladesh

If ordering directly from Amazon in Bangladesh is not a viable option for you, there are several alternative methods you can consider:

Use a Package Forwarding Service

One popular alternative is to use a package forwarding service, also known as a freight forwarder or third-party shipping service. These services provide you with a U.S. or international address, where you can have your Amazon orders shipped. Once the package arrives at their facility, they will then forward it to your address in Bangladesh.

Some well-known package forwarding services include MyUS, Shipito, and BuyandShipEZ. While these services can be convenient, they do come with additional fees for their forwarding and handling services.

Use an International Shopping Platform

Another option is to use an international shopping platform that specializes in facilitating cross-border e-commerce transactions. These platforms act as intermediaries, allowing you to order from international retailers like Amazon and have the items shipped to their local distribution centers. From there, they handle the delivery to your address in Bangladesh.

Popular international shopping platforms include Ubuy, BuyInCoins, Fibery, and Shypmate. These platforms typically charge a commission or service fee on top of the product cost and shipping charges.

Use Ali2BD App

If you’re specifically looking to order from Amazon in Bangladesh, you can use the Ali2BD app. This app is designed to help Bangladeshi customers order products from various international e-commerce platforms, including Amazon, and have them delivered to their doorstep in Bangladesh.

The Ali2BD app acts as a middleman, allowing you to browse and purchase products from Amazon, while they handle the shipping and delivery process to Bangladesh. They charge a commission fee based on the product cost and shipping charges. Here are the steps you will need to follow – 

  • Download and log in to the Ali2BD app.
  • After that, go to Amazon, and find out the product you want to order. Navigate inside it and click on the share button.
  • From the list, scroll down and look for Ali2BD there. Once you find it, tap on it.
  • Next, in the Ali2BD app, fill out the Request Form, select the number of products you need, and other relevant things. 
  • After that, click on Submit. Then it will go to Pending section.

There you have it. Now wait, till the order gets Approved.
