How to buy Amazon USA? It is a question that many Brazilians are asking, the variety of products that Amazon has goes beyond the products that are available in the Brazilian store.
There is a version of Amazon for the United States, with several products that are not available in the Brazilian site, and that you can buy normally through them through your Brazilian account, as long as the seller ships to Brazil.
But buying from Amazon pays tax? Here you will know how to do this, and will receive several tips on how to make your purchases.
How to Buy Amazon USA: Step-by-Step
- Open Amazon’s website and log in with your Brazilian account;
- Go to the bottom of the page and choose the Amazon USA site;
It may not seem like anything has changed, because the page will still be in Portuguese, but you will see an icon with the US flag next to the search bar, and the cart will also look different.
- Make sure your shipping address in Brazil is filled in correctly. You can see it on Amazon’s home page (“Ship To”);
- Search for the products you want. The items will appear with the price already in reais. All products that have “Shipping to Brazil” below the value can be shipped by Amazon from the USA.
- Go to the product page of the product you want. The pages for items marked “Shipped to Brazil” already show the estimated taxes, duties, and customs fees.
DOES BUYING FROM AMAZON PAY TAX?
Although shopping on Amazon US is very easy, the taxes and fees can be high. Before buying from Amazon US compare with the price of the product on Amazon Brazil.
When you do a search on Amazon USA, the results show the value of the product in Reais. However, there are still taxes to be added to that amount, plus shipping.
To know the value of taxes and fees, you should go to the product page, and check the estimate just above the “Add to cart” icon. There will appear the value of taxes and shipping.
HOW AMAZON USA RATES WORK
If you finalize the purchase, the carrier uses the amount estimated by Amazon to pay the Import Tax on Foreign Products on your behalf or on behalf of the recipient to the competent authorities in Brazil (“Deposit of Import Tax on Foreign Products”).
Since buying Amazon USA, makes an estimate of the amount of taxes and duties, the final amount may vary. These amounts are calculated according to the customs regulations of the shipping destination.
If the final tax is less than the deposit collected by Amazon, the company will automatically refund the difference in the payment method that the customer used for the order.
You will not need to pay extra amounts if the import tax is higher than Amazon USA’s estimated calculation, but for advertised items that do not show the tax rates on the product page, the policies change with each seller.
I recommend that you focus only on buying products that are marked “Shipped to Brazil”, because they already have the tax calculation, without possible surprises in the end.
Opening a store on Amazon’s platform is among the most promising businesses in the United States.
A market research done by a specialized consulting company can help you about business in the USA.
