How To Buy The Amazon Echo Plus - International Shipping
Option 1: Buy Directly From Amazon.com
Step 1: Visit the Amazon Echo Plus product page on Amazon's international site
Try this option first because if Amazon ships the Amazon Echo Plus directly to your country then this is always the cheapest and fastest option.
Step 2: Change your Amazon shipping address to your country
Change the shipping address to your country by clicking the "deliver to" text below the "Add To Cart" button on the right side of the Amazon Echo Plus product page.
Step 3: Order the Amazon Echo Plus (if Amazon will ship it to your country)
Unfortunately Amazon ships less than 20% of it's US items internationally. So if you can't ship the Amazon Echo Plus to your country, then proceed to the next option.
Option 2: Buy Directly From eBay
Step 1: Visit the Amazon Echo Plus product page on eBay
Step 2: Change your eBay shipping address to your country
Change the shipping address to your country by clicking on any product (doesn't have to be theAmazon Echo Plus page), scrolling down the page, clicking on the "shipping and payments" tab (next to the description tab), and then changing the shipping country to your country.
eBay will then only show you products that ship to your country!
Option 3: If Amazon or eBay Won't Ship Internationally, Use A U.S. Shipping Forwarder
Step 1: Sign up for a shipping forwader
For the Amazon Echo Plus, we recommend MyUS.com because we’ve personally shipped more than 1,000 packages with six different package forwarders and MyUS has the lowest rates, is tax-free, and is the most popular U.S. shipping forwarder by far.
MyUS will receive your Amazon Echo Plus and then ship it to any country worldwide. And if you have any issues placing your order, MyUS’s concierge service can place the order for you.
Step 2: Buy the Amazon Echo Plus from Amazon
Once you’ve set up your U.S. shipping address with MyUS, you’re ready to make your Amazon purchase. Just visit Amazon, input your MyUS address, and place your order!

Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beamforming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. The 2nd generation Echo has improved wake-word performance to hear you ask a question from any directionâ€”even in noisy environments or while playing music at loud volumes.
When you want to use Echo, simply say the wake word, â€œAlexa,â€ and Echo lights up and connects to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service recognizes and responds to your request instantly.
Alexa has skills
Echo Plus uses tens of thousands of skills and counting. Ask about your daily commute, control your Sony smart TV, play Jeopardy!, check your account balance with American Express, and more. To enable a new skill, just ask Alexa.
New skills are being added all the time. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about the thousands of skills available in the Alexa App.
Alexa is always getting smarter â€” the more you use Echo, the more Alexa adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.
Just in the last few months weâ€™ve added Alexa calling and messaging, multi-room music, and reminders, along with skills from third-party developers.
