Responses re Amazon.es


I have contacted them using the help section in my account.

Go to your account click on help, then select contact.  You will be asked how you would like to contact,  click the ‘chat’ option you can then type your query.  begin by asking to be attended in English. I did this when I discovered I was subscribed to prime and had not chosen to be a member.  They are extremely helpful and efficient.  Hope this works for you




I had some trouble with Amazon.es some time ago and in the end I contacted Amazon.co.uk giving them the order no. and explained the problem. They contacted me by return and sorted it out with Spain.

Jeremy might try that



In answer to Jeremy of Algarrobo, I had a problem with an order that went missing en route from German Amazon, amazon.de, so I phoned Amazon’s help desk in England (tel. 0044 207 084 7911), gave them the order and tracking numbers, explained I couldn’t understand the amazon.de website, and they contacted them for me and sorted it out. Maybe that will work for you. Good luck.
