If you order goods in the Amazon online store or other US stores, you may have come across a situation where there is no delivery option for any purchase to the Russian Federation and the CIS countries. This is typical, for example, for a variety of technical devices.
Recently we decided to order a budget HP Stream 8 tablet for review. It was just available on the Amazon website and was safely put in the basket by us, but - here's the bad luck - when placing an order, it turned out that American online stores do not deliver all goods to addresses post offices in Russia.

There are no unsolvable problems, and the solution was found in the person of an intermediary, the Qwintry service from Qwintry, designed to deliver goods purchased in America's online stores. We share our own experience on the delivery of purchases through Qwintry.
Registration on the Qwintry website took less than a minute. It was required to enter basic personal data, the standard registration procedure. After confirming the data in the personal account in the "My Account" tab, the American address of the Qwintry warehouse was displayed, which became our "intermediary" for receiving orders from Amazon.
It was this address that we entered when registering the delivery of the tablet on the Amazon website. After confirming the delivery address, it was a pleasant surprise for us that delivery to the Qwintry warehouse is free of charge.
After 2 days, like clockwork, we received a notification that the parcel ordered by us arrived at the Qwintry address. Newly received parcels are displayed on the website in the "In stock" section. All parcels from this section can be sent to postal addressees of the Russian Federation and the CIS.
You can even see a photo of our parcel from the warehouse in Delaware
In order for the parcels to become available for shipment, you must fill out a declaration. You need to fill out in English, but this is not so difficult, since when entering data in the form windows, the site offers hints. Having finished with the declaration, we select the parcel (in this case we had one, but you can combine several - it will turn out profitably and conveniently), press the "Next" button.
Now we get to the page where we need to enter our main address - the same one from where we have to pick up the parcel. The next step is filling in the send options. We chose Qwintry Air - our own Qwintry delivery method with a very attractive price. Then it remains only to carefully check all the data again and place an order.
Then you need to wait until your order is processed by the Qwintry service, the readiness of which is notified. Already knowing the exact amount, you can easily top up the balance on the site from a plastic card. Having replenished the account, by the morning we received a notification that the parcel was sent.
We received our order in 10 days. Quite quickly, especially considering that it was a vacation - a time when many people shop online. The purchase arrived without defects or damage, thanks to the very careful double packaging.
In addition to our tablet, there was a nice bonus in the package - a signed postcard and a bag of marmalade
As for the procedure for buying through an intermediary, everything is very accessible, understandable and, most importantly, promptly. The Qwintry service will appeal to those who value their time and do not want to worry about how soon their package will arrive and whether it will receive it safely. If we talk about us, then we not only recommend Qwintry as an intermediary for purchases from Amazon and other American stores, but we will definitely use this service ourselves in the future.
