Ok, so you have decided to not get ripped off and buy directly from Amazon – awesome! Below is a step-by-step guide that will take you through each step of the ordering process – it’s really straight forward, but for your peace of mind I’ve created this handy guide on How to Buy a Kindle.
How to Buy A Kindle – Step-by-Step Guide
Navigate to www.amazon.com and locate the product page of the Kindle you wish to purchase (i.e. WiFi, 3G or DX). If you have trouble finding it, use the search function on the homepage as below:
Select “South Africa” as the country of use, read through the pop-up that appears and close it.
Proceed to click on “Add To Cart”.
Click “Proceed to Checkout” on the following screen.
On the next screen, select I’m a New User and enter a valid email address. Click Sign in […].
The following screen will prompt you to enter your account details. Do so and click Create Account to proceed…
On the next screen, update your Shipping details – this will be the address Amazon will deliver to. Make sure you get this correct:) Make sure you indicate whether this is also your billing address.
Continue to the next screen where you will select the type of delivery. There will most likely only be one choice – select Priority International Courier (averages 2-7 days) and click Continue.
