How to Shop Amazon while in Kenya:
We have made shopping online from Amazon so easy that you do not have to be technical to do it. If you can send someone an email, that is all you need to start shopping Amazon USA. Here is a step-by-step guide. In this guide, I will show how to shop by sending us email
with your links or how to create Amazon wish list
and share it with us.
Step 1: Go to Amazon.com and identify the item(s) you need.
Step 2: Copy your Amazon Links.
Here, copy and paste the link for the item you need into your email. If you need to shop more than one item, copy these links to your email directly or use a Microsoft word document. You can send us as many items as you wish.
Once you have gathered your links, simply send your links to firstname.lastname@example.org
. We will respond with a quote. In this email, please include the following.
- Your full legal name (No nicknames or freelance names)
- Your phone number we can reach you at.
- Tell us the quantities you need per link you send to us. If you need 2 phones for example, indicate you need two pieces.
Step 4: Review Your Quote and Accept:
Once your email is received, we will email you a quote/proforma invoice using our system. You will also receive an email asking you to create a password for customer portal.
Inside customer portal, you will be able to see your invoices, modes of payments, review purchase history, your statement and many more features.
Step 5. Make Payments for Purchase Cost:
Once you accept the proforma invoice, you will receive another email with the actual invoice for you to make payments required to pay for the item.
You will only need to pay for purchase cost at this point. Shipping cost can be paid during pickup time when we deliver.
You can make payments using MPESA or Bank draft. We do not accept cash payments in the office. If you must use cash payments, please deposit directly to the bank and send us the receipt.
Step 6: Receive Purchase Confirmation with Amazon Receipt Attached:
Once you have made the purchase payments, we will start working on your order. We will purchase your item(s) and send you a confirmation of the purchase.
In many cases, we will attach Amazon purchase confirmation receipt in confirmation email. Keep the receipt as needed for records.
