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 think you’re very lucky that it happened Chat Amazon and tell them nothing ever came to your door that you were home And that you want compensation from that not coming on time if the order passes a certain date they will send you a new
Good luck

I have never had issues.
They always call my Israeli number to confirm someone is home and If no one is, I have them leave it in the Miklat.

Interesting story:

I bought a couple packages of toilet paper when they had the $15 off $50 a couple weeks ago. I was still short of $50 so I threw in a couple small fillers and one package of 6 boxes of Kleenex.

Total for the order was $32 after the $15 discount and the subscribe and save discount (which you don't even have to cancel. Since they don't have subscribe and save to Israel, you get the s&s discount but the subscription is never created).

I got the toilet paper and fillers on Monday in a big heavy box.
This morning I get a whole separate delivery and it is a huge box.
I open it up to find 4 packages of 6 Kleenex boxes for a total of 24 boxes. It's one thing for them to mistakenly send me free products but when they are heavy products being air shipped from America...

I can't imagine how much money Amazon lost delivering me my toilet paper and tissues. How is this worth it for them?

Does any one know at what point Amazon considers a shipment to Israel late? (that theres a point in contacting them)

I ordered four items on Dec 22 and was given an estimated delivery date of jan 10 - 17 . Amazon split it into three shipments.
 1) A book and a sewing machine part shipped straight away with Israel Post and arrived Dec 29, (the courier called me when he got to my house and i went out to get the package).
2) An Anne Klein watch (thanks Dan!) shipped Dec 26 with DHL, only got to Israel on Jan 8, and tracking has gone dark from then.
3) A Contigo bottle. Only shipped on Jan 9 with I-Parcel, now shows estimated delivery of Jan 28.

Does Amazon give compensation for delayed shipments to Israel?
What do they give?

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.
How did you contact? Me they made return it..

I happen to agree with you, I am just curious about other peoples experience.
I also wonder if giving feedback on which delivery service is better will lead to improvements in the shipping.

I’d wait until after the last day you were supposed to receive. I had a big order that was split & when one item shipped, it said estimated delivery about a week later than the last day I was supposed to receive it. I ended up getting it a week & a half earlier than the later date…

I can't imagine if you needed to schlep home from the post office with large boxes (or possibly on/off the bus), that you wouldn't ask Amazon for a few nickels...

Honestly, I wouldn't ask for compensation for either. Though I would provide feedback to Amazon so they can ship with the better shippers in the future. Though I haven't had a problem with any of my Amazon orders

Better to "suffer" once or twice at the post office then to kill the system.
What is our alternative? Going back to overpaying for sub-par products that we anyway end up shleping from the store? Ordering things online from a store that is literally 30 minutes from your house and waiting "21 business days" for delivery?

Who's killing the system? Amazon has a long list of companies they ship with. I keep just giving positive feedback on all the others and discouraging them from using Doar. Hopefully, Doar will get the message and up their game a bit.
You can't sign a massive contract with a company like Amazon and still act like the same Doar of the '90s...
