Which Countries are Supported?

Shopping with Bitcoin

Bitcoin is globally accessible, and Amazon is accessible in most parts of the world.

Search for items from on Purse. We offer support exclusively for the following country-specific Amazon stores:

United States πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
Canada πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦
United Kingdom πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§
Japan πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅

Between these stores, Amazon will ship almost anywhere in the world for an additional fee. We hope the savings you gain through Purse helps cover the cost. The shipping and logistics aspects of Amazon orders are under the exclusive domain of Amazon, with which Purse is not affiliated. That doesn't mean you can't use these stores to place orders and ship elsewhere, or use a freight forwarder to ship to your country if the export from Amazon is problematic.

Caveats and Unsupported countries

In the case of some countries listed here, the shopper will need to provide the national tax ID number for the order to clear through customs. Some countries will require the scanned ID document image and in this case, orders to those countries cannot be processed through our platform. Since Amazon is constantly changing this list, the best way to make sure your country is supported is to submit your Purse order, we will let you know if we encounter any issues fulfilling your order.

We have seen issues using addresses in the following countries: Australia, France, Poland, Norway, Sweden, Brazil, Mexico, and some parts of Japan, due to Amazon constantly changing the way addresses are entered for those countries (at their UI level). Because of this, some users have reported problems with creating orders bound for these countries when using our platform. If you want to create orders for these countries, we recommend you look into the possibility of using a freight forwarder.

Buying Bitcoin

Almost anyone in the world can use their Amazon gift card balance to acquire Bitcoin on Purse by working as an earner. Cash in your Amazon credit or use any other payment method that Amazon accepts.
