Amazon.....CO.UK

Postby Martin Page » Fri Aug 04, 2017 3:59 pm

It would appear that Amazon UK has decided to go Geolocate.
I can get Amazon.ES ... but not UK
I've been trying for a couple of days, but thought that they were having issues, so for the hell of it I tried it on VPN .... No Problem
Just tried again without the VPN ....error 404

Why would they do that? They are happy for international customers to use the site subject to delivery restrictions. I have used the German and Italian site with no problems. I can access Amazon.UK OK, but I do use a Smart DNS but I doubt that they are set up for Amazon as it has never been geoblocked in the past.

I've been on the UK site twice this week, and placed orders both times without a problem, without using a VPN or DNS. Also, they confirm the orders and delivery details by email to our Spanish email address.

Just google Amazon UK, and you'll be in.
If you don't specify, it will default to where you're located.
