I have written my experience ordering using AmazonGlobal which was great. The only part that made Amazon missed was the delivery deadline. Those orders were placed using AmazonGlobal Expedited Shipping which said averaged 5-10 business days for delivery. However Amazon’s courier partner i-Parcel failed to get my orders in time, although they only missed for a few days.
To truly test the quality of their global market initiative, last week I placed another order. This time I used the AmazonGlobal Priority Shipping option for the delivery with 2-4 business days for delivery. I placed the order on December 4th which was Friday and surely enough the order was immediately fulfilled and shipped on the same day using UPS Worldwide Saver.
To my pleasant surprise, on Monday (Dec 7) morning when I checked on the tracking status, the package had been received, cleared customs and out for delivery. Monday afternoon the order arrived at my door. That’s 3 days or only 1 business day, pretty amazing! I am happy and can recommend to use AmazonGlobal Priority Shipping if you really want an item in a hurry and you are willing to pay extra.
