Topic Wiki

Would love this thread to help people not to make mistakes and prevent aggravation!
I will start

1. Always add a working contact Israeli number starting with +972/
2. Always make sure to add your Passport/ת''ז ontime within First day or 2 of your order if not your order will be canceled.
3. Never put in a pickup destination if you don`t want to go pick it up and wait the courier must bring it to your door. (do not answer the Text/Email asking you where to drop off)
4. If your order doesn't come ontime you could get a Credit for late timing try chating.
5. Never exceed the value of $75.00
6. make sure you have $49.00 of eligible items
7. Beware that if you send a few packages close together, they may still charge you TAX/VAT so it is best to wait a few days in between or try getting them different dates or different couriers, or send one on your name and one on your wifes or neighbors. Or to a family member, needs to be over the age of 18
8. You can get subscribe and save discounts (5%) on your first order, but you can't actually subscribe and save.
9. There are 2 types of zip codes use the 7 digit that starts with a "9"

Here is a list of Couriers that ship with Amazon to Israel

I've been ordering quite a lot and wait a day between orders. All have been thru doar delivered to my door albeit late. But I do get it. And all orders have been under $75 but shipping can sometimes be $100 and haven't had an issue when it says on the box $175 value.
Do you live in Jerusalem?

Yup. Before each delivery I get a text asking where I want to pick it up, obviously I've been ignoring them.

How much longer is the free shipping gonna last? Any speculation?

Until they have enough data to fully understand the market and decide what to stock locally.

Itís very hard to know because the $75 rule  that you donít have to pay taxes is very important and that you donít need any of those products stickers or approval by the health department is also a big thing so even if they get all the data doesnít mean they could start shipping tomorrow for the same price, they would have to be mighty expensive like all the other groceries My Israeli Friend has a grocery and is currently buying his toothpaste tissues mouthwash another bunch of other things on Amazon

That's great.  But you can buy a five pack of kimbely-clark israel 2 ply tissues for 10 shek.  there are 90 in a pack = NIS 0.0222 per tissue.
This, if my addition is correct is 3768 tissues for 37.56 = $0.00996815 per tissue which is about NIS 0.0344 which is about 54% more per tissue than the buy in supermarket option.

Now you may say that US Kleenexs are better, you use less per use etc, but is it worth a 54% premium?

It may very well be, I'm just not sure.

I've bought Huggies wipes https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078XXG83H/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER because they are SO MUCH better that the huggies wipes sold here and we use less than half the wipes than we would with the Israeli ones.

ETA: I forgot to take VAT in to consideration.  Subtract 17% from the 54% premium.

IMHO, they deserve every bit of it. Not necessarily for prioritizing Amazon, but for not upping their game to 2020 standards.

Letter envelope mailed from NY on Dec 9 with First Class Int'l postage arrived yesterday, between 2-3 weeks longer than pre-Amazon free shipping.

We have been using it for a while.

I wanted to return an item, and contacted amazon support. They decided to refund the order and let us keep the product. Shipping cost would be prohibitive.
