    hello,

    I want to buy on Amazon on behalf of my clients. Well Amazon is not available in my country.

    I want when someone goes to Amazon, they add a product to cart.

    Then some how I get the details, they pay me, I in-turn buy on Amazon on their behalf and I deliver the goods to them.

    How can I do this automatically? Like have my own website and orders come to me and I process them.

    Thanks for your help

    You can ship the product to your country if
    your country is eligible to receive

    This wouldn't make any sense, because what would be your profit? Let's say for the argument's sake that this scheme exists. The customers would pay the price what they see on Amazon (you can't charge more), then you would buy the item from Amazon for the same price, what they just paid. In this scenario you aren't an Amazon affiliate, so you wouldn't get any commissions, no profit for you.

    Try and see if Aliexpress (or other similar sites) is supported in your country or not. Or try the good ol' Amazon-eBay arbitrage model.

    The only way I can see is for OP to be a personal shopper and charge a fee

    I read the Amazon associate tos 5 times(not joking or exaggerating)
    In the tos it says you can't buy on on others behalf

    From the amazon associate tos:
    "You will not make any orders or engage in other transactions of any kind on the Amazon Site on behalf of any other person or entity, or authorize, assist, or encourage any other person or entity to do so."


    You'll get banned fast

    I will charge an extra fee, I have been doing research and found a system that works through a browser extension. Once someone Adds a product to cart, they can use the extension to transfer the product to my ecommerce platform and pay the extra fee and I will deliver to them.

    Thanks for your contribution

    That is my plan, however I wanted to do it automatically and seem to find my answer. Will create a website where I will get the Amazon carts content through the Amazon API and shop on behalf of the customer at a fee ofcourse.

    Being a personal shopper means you could expand outside of Amazon, you could use many different sites. I wish you well with your project.

    I see now, but these clients of yours don't have access to Amazon either as yourself or why would they purchase through you for a fee and not directly from Amazon?

    It's not the classic personal shopper situation, because your clients still need to deal with submitting the orders.

    Let's say they don't have credit cards, y headache is finding a script that will pick from their Amazon carts and import to my website and checkout from there.
