Amazon operates in countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, China, Japan, Mexico, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, and other chosen few with each country having specific sites. While certain countries may restrict certain items due to their content, amazon does not accept orders for delivery in Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Syria, and North Korea.

Having your country prohibited from selling and accessing Amazon goods does not stop you from creating an Amazon account though you might have a problem during the verification process. One of the ways to bypass this system is by buying someone’s account in an unlisted country and with this, you can order or sell goods. The tricky part may be receiving the ordered goods so you should probably have a friend in that country pick up the items for you and send them to your country. You will of course have to incur more costs from the transportation of these items but sometimes we hassle to purchase items that are worth it no matter what amount of money is lost. So before you decide to shop on Amazon from a nonlisted country, make sure you know the Amazon exchange rates and currency converter then you can decide to purchase the item.
For countries that are not enlisted by Amazon, you can always order from other sites. The internet provides options of very many other websites offering the same services as Amazon-like Rakuten, Walmart, Target, eBay, and Alibaba. You definitely cannot fail to find what you are looking for on any one of these sites.
