I have family that lives in Germany and I would like to send the kids Christmas gifts. I do not want to ship from the US to Germany, I would rather shop from German websites for quicker shipping time and fewer fees. I tried going on amazon.de but it does not keep me logged into my Amazon account, and the google translator did not work for the site (I cannot read German). I found some other websites such as https://www.fnp.com/germany/gifts but it does not seem to be geared towards children. Any recommendations for online shops that I can purchase children's gifts in Germany and have shipped within Germany but pay from the USA? Thank you
In cases where the product is also available in Germany, ordering on the us Amazon site, with delivery in Germany, it will be sent from the nearest depository in Europe.
They will also probably apply the local VAT, since the recipient is the final consumer. This will also avoid possible customs tarifs and overseas delivery costs.
You should see this as the last step of the purchase before the buying transaction has been completed.
