Are you an avid reader, searching to buy the Amazon kindle in Singapore ? The real fact is Amazon doesn't ship any of the Kindle products to Singapore directly. Amazon Kindle ebook reader is the #1 best-selling product in amazon, but still they have no shipping to some of the countries like Singapore, where there is high demand for the product. Amazon haven't declared the reason for not shipping it to Singapore. So still how can you get the kindle ebook reader delivered at your door-step in Singapore?


There is a simple trick to make it work. Just follow these simple steps one by one and Kindle will reach your doorstep in Singapore in a matter of days.

Step 1 : Get a U.S. Address from Borderlinx.com
Sign-up at  Borderlinx.com , a mail forwarding company in U.S.. You'll have to enter your original Singapore's shipping address and they'll provide you with a dummy U.S. address. Since there is no direct shipping to Singapore, we need to first ship it to your U.S. address from where it will be then shipped to your Singapore address.When the Kindle you ordered reach the U.S. address, they'll again ship it to your original Singapore address you provide them. 

Step 2 : Calculate the total expense
Go to the Amazon Kindle page and calculate how much will it cost you in total. You might wan't to order stuff like Kindle Cover if it's not available locally. So, browse through and sum-up how much will it cost you in total.

Step 3 : Purchase them as Amazon Gift Cards
Since its not possible to make the payment for Kindle online from Singapore, you've to purchase Amazon Gift Card of the equal price and use it to purchase the Kindle. You can get the Amazon Gift Card Here (delivered by email ).

Step 4 : Purchase Kindle and Pay with the Amazon Gift Card

You can now buy the Kindle for US. Make sure that you purchase the Kindle version for U.S. itself and not for any other country. You can get it from the Kindle U.S. exclusive shipping page. After you add the Kindle and any necessary accessories to the shopping cart, choose 'Pay with Amazon Gift Card' in the payment option. Enter the U.S. address provided to you by Borderlinx.com as the shipping address.


Step 5 : Get rocking with Kindle in Singapore
Borderlinx.com will send you confirmation mails and tracking id of the shipment. When the Kindle reach the U.S. address, Borderlinx.com will forward it to your address in Singapore. And there you are playing with you nice new Kindle at Singapore.

PS: I made the calculations. You'll have to pay 14 USD ( = 17.64 Singapore dollars ) to borderlinx to ship the parcel from the dummy US address to your address in Singapore.
