Does Amazon ship items to Cyprus?
The answer is “It depends on the product”. Amazon does ship items to Cyprus, but not all the products. In order to get all the products, you have to either use Amazon’s “1-Click” service or use a “Package Forwarder”. Even if the “1-Click” service of Amazon doesn’t work, the Package Forwarder method works perfectly fine to ship items to Cyprus.
Hi everyone. Welcome to the Europetutor.com community. Today in this article, we are going to learn about how Amazon shipping works, and how you can get your items delivered to Cyprus without much of a hassle.
What is Amazon’s “1-Click” service?
When you try to buy items from Amazon USA, you might get into trouble as it might say, “the items that you have selected cannot be shipped to Cyprus”.
It’s annoying, I know. But don’t worry, there is always a way.
Did you know that Amazon has a special search portal that only shows you items that can be shipped to your current address? That’s right. You can filter the products that can be delivered to Cyprus, and the products that can’t be shipped to Cyprus won’t be shown to you.
In order for that to activate, all you have to do is, go to your Amazon account then Your Payments > Settings > Your Purchase References, and then enable the “1-Click” button.
You can see the image below to understand better.
There is a disadvantage to the “1-Click” method. What if the item that you want to ship is shown as the item that cannot be shipped? To solve that issue, you have to use a package forwarder service.
The “Package Forwarder” Method
There are numerous courier services in the USA as well as in the UK that can work as a Package Forwarder for you. Package forwarders are specialized companies that will accept your Amazon purchases at their warehouse in the USA or the UK, and then forward them to you.
Here are some of the package forwarders that are recommended in the market.
USA Package Forwarders
UK Package Forwarders
You have to sign in with one of the companies above. Once you sign in, they will provide you with the location of their stores.
When you buy a product from Amazon, you put the shipping address to the address given to you by the package forwarder company. Once they get your item, they will send you a picture of the item for you to check.
Once you verify it, they put it on their shipping list. That’s how a package forwarding company works.
Even though using the services of a package forwarder will cost you some extra bucks, it’s worth it. You will have your items delivered to your house in just a couple of days. Above mentioned package forwarding companies are 100% reliable and their service is effective.
How many days does it take Amazon to deliver a product to Cyprus?
It takes around 5 to 7 days for Amazon to deliver your items to Cyprus. Sometimes it might take 10 to 12 days. In case, you have chosen a faster delivery way by paying them extra, then it will take around 3 to 5 days.
You can pay for your Amazon order with a credit card (Mastercard, Visa, American Express, JCB, Discover, UnionPay, Diners Club), debit cards, US-based bank accounts, Amazon.com store cards, and Amazon gift cards.
Does Amazon offer free shipping to Cyprus?
No. Amazon doesn’t deliver your item free of cost.
How much does Amazon shipping to Cyprus cost?
Amazon’s shipping fee to Cyprus depends on the items you’re buying and how quickly you want to receive them. You can always see the shipping and import fees while buying the product from Amazon.

Does Amazon have a Warehouse in Cyprus?
As of today (1st-August-2022), Amazon doesn’t have a warehouse or store in Cyprus. The items that you buy from Amazon are directly sent to you from which country Amazon you bought them from. For example, if you buy a laptop from Amazon Germany, it will send to you directly from their Germany store.
Is Amazon coming to Cyprus?
Even though Amazon doesn’t have a store in Cyprus as of now, they are planning on opening one in the near future.
Does Amazon deliver to North Cyprus?
Amazon doesn’t directly ship to North Cyprus. Your items will be brought to South Cyprus first, then it’s sent to you via courier. You can use the Package Forwarder method to ship the items to North Cyprus from the UK or the USA.
Is Amazon Prime available in Cyprus?
No, Amazon prime isn’t available in Cyprus. Amazon Prime is Amazon’s premium shopping subscription service. As of now, Amazon Prime deliveries don’t work in Cyprus. If you have Amazon Prime via Amazon.com, all of your orders will be eligible for free shipping, but only within the USA.
People in Cyprus use Amazon prime for other services like Amazon Prime Music and Amazon Prime Video.
Does Amazon Flex work in Cyprus?
No. Amazon Flex doesn’t work in Cyprus. Currently, Amazon Flex is only active in the cities of the United States of America. If you are interested, you can download the app and let amazon know that you want to join Amazon Flex as a delivery partner.
For those of you who don’t know what Amazon Flex is, it’s a delivery program that recruits drivers to pick up packages in their cities and bring them straight to customers’ doors.
Here is a screenshot from Amazon.com on how it defines Amazon Flex.
Since Amazon Flex drivers are independent contractors, not Amazon employees, they generally do not wear Amazon-branded apparel, and they make their deliveries using their personal vehicles.
