Problems I Faced When Buying From Amazon Turkey And How I Solved Them

As a foreigner i faced some problems when shopping on Amazon Turkey and here is How I solved all of them:

Language

Problem

Amazon Turkey is in Turkish language fully, there is no English, Russian, Bulgarian or Arabic translation, just Turkish, I speak Turkish fluently now but how about before I learn Turkish?

How I solved It?

The solution here is using Chrome, Edge or Safari, translate the page from the browser and the translation quality is pretty much ok for the shopping experience.

By using these techniques I was able to view Amazon Turkey in English without having any language problems.

Shipping

Problem

Amazon Turkey only ships to addresses in Turkey, so if you don’t have a Turkish address you just simply can’t order from There.

How I solved It?

Turkey proxy address services solves this problem, you will pay a little extra but you will get an address in Turkey to get all your products deleivred to, you will get new packaging and shipping handeled for you.
