Amazon is currently the world largest online shopping company in the world in terms of gross sales followed by Alibaba, a Chinese based online shopping mall. While you still could shop amazon while in Kenya without our assistance, logistics part makes matters difficultto a lot of people. And it is Expensive…
…But we have been shipping from Amazon to Kenya for so little that you just need to start shopping.
Back in 2014, we had written a guide on how to shop and ship from Amazon to Kenya. People have been asking many questions from that post and prompted me to write a fresh 2017 shopping and shipping guide.
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.
For demonstration purposes, we will use a cellphone an example. Please note that you can select multiple items and compile a list of many items.
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 email@example.com. We will respond with a quote. In this email, please include the following.
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.
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.
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.
Some people prefers to add items in Amazon’s shopping cart and share the wish-list with us to make the purchase for them and deliver to Kenya. This section will show you how to create Amazon’s wish list and share with us.
Once you are logged in to your Amazon account, click on the wish link as shown in the diagram below. On the top right corner, there is a link to create a new Amazon wish list. Click on that link and follow the instructions. Here is a screenshot of this step
To make it easier for you identifying items you sent to us, name your list “kentex Cargo” or whatever else you want to name it. It really doesn’t matter the name you call it. You can call it something like….Wedding shopping, My USA shopping, etc
As shown in the image below, select shopping list. You could also select wish-list option but wish list tend to print gift receipts (which is not necessary) inserted in shipping box. It’s just unnecessary paper trash and we do not ship such.
Please notice you will need to add to the wish list, and NOT in your Amazon shipping cart. I have included a screenshot of how to add to the wish list.
To share your Amazon wish list you just created, click on the envelope icon on the top right corner of your page as shown on this image. While you could use Facebook and twitter to share your wish list, we strongly advice you use email and avoid social media.
As shown in the image below, email us your wish list to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will receive your item’s list as you added it in your amazon cart.
We will email you a quote and once accepted, you will receive a formal invoice. Just like explained above, we will proceed with the order processing.
