Hello. There is a chair I'd like to buy and its is cheaper by £18 on Amazon Germany for 99 Euros and kostenlose (free delivery).


I'm with Barclays and I'm worried they will charge me an exchange rate for paying in Euros with my debit card.


I've not bought from outside Amazon UK before, could someone advise if I have to factor in paying extra money for the exchange rate as well?


Thank you.

    Are you sure its free delivery outside Germany ?

    I cannot believe they would ship large objects across Europe for free ?

    see:
    Barclays will charge you a 2.99% Non-Sterling Transaction Fee for using your debit card abroad when making purchases, withdrawing cash or when you're being refunded. This fee will also apply whenever you don't pay in sterling, for example, when you shop online at a non-UK website

    19.90 Euros delivery to UK. Thank you for pointing that out. Went to the sellers page, used translate with Bing and you are of course correct.


    I'll wait and see if the one on the UK store goes cheaper.

    Thanks for the info, I'll be sure to factor that in if I buy outside Amazon UK.
