Strange Amazon Problem
« on: May 20, 2008, 10:11:19 PM »
I just got a call from a Canadian who has tried to place an order, and he went through the steps, and when he got to payment, they said that Amazon is restricting sales to Canada because of currency exchange problems since the Canadian dollar is higher.

While we were talking, he says it DID take his payment, but he had been turned down four times.

Anyone have any idea what's going on?

Doesn't Amazon have good phone support? Are they open right now for you to give them a call and ask?

Until he sends me a copy of the exact wording, I'm just going to assume it's an Amazon glitch, since it went thru when he tried again.

It's also possible other items he tried to order were from Amazon directly, and they have their own rules.  I see lots of items that say something like "this item can only be sold in the US", yet they'll send me an overseas order for it.
