Amazon from South Africa

HendrikwHendrikw Member Posts: 2
Hi Guys,

So I created a Payoneer account with the hopes to start selling on Amazon from South Africa. But the problem is that I tried to add my Payoneer card details on their site only to find that South Africa is not part of the countries in the drop down list when I need to select a country.

Is there a way around this. Maybe a US address and phone number that I can use in order to add my card details to my amazon account?

I mean that is what was sold to me when registering on Amazon, but now I cannot get the account activated because I don't have a US address.

Looking forward to some constructive solutions. Thank you in advance.

Regards,
HW

    Hey fellow South African! I am also dealing with Amazon, mostly selling ebooks. So I don't know if the other merchandise stores work differently, but I was able to provide my global payment bank account details and use my SA address details. If you haven't looked into Global Payment Services here at Payoneer - check into that and see if it solves your problem. (disclaimer I'm no expert so Payoneer staff can correct me if I'm wrong)

    Hey there,

    When trying to add my card details it requests an address and local phone number. But in the drop down where you select your country South Africa is not part of the list. So I am not sure how you went about getting that working. If you could elaborate I would greatly appreciate it.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    @Hendrikw and @Christakistheodosi , I have the same problem.

    South Africa is not listed in Amazon's dropdown list box when adding my ADDRESS, yet it is when adding my CONTACT NUMBER. I don't understand.

    But because I cannot enter my SA address, I cannot complete registration as an individual seller. If anyone has come right with this please share! Much appreciated!

    Dear @Sivan,

    The problem we are all having is that Amazon does not accept South African addresses (home and/or business).

    Do you know how we can get past this in order to start drop shipping on Amazon?

    Regards
