If I don't live in the USA...
...How do I order shoes on the Internet?
, I present my personal
selection of the most elegant and striking women's high-heeled shoes from Amazon.com
. The fact that Amazon.com is
in the United States complicates orders from Europe, Latin America, Africa,
Asia, the Middle East, and other parts of the world, because US companies
generally do not ship any kind of merchandise outside the USA (except in
some cases to Canada and to US territories and possessions and overseas
military installations), except for books, CDs, and DVDs.
If Amazon does not ship directly to your country, keep reading this page,
following the links to more in-depth information,
to see how to order shoes and whatever else you want on the Internet
from now on.

Sorry, I don't have a catalog. Everything in this site is done on the
Internet because the inventory and pricing change every day.
How to shop for shoes on Aleida.net
First of all
, before you can shop at Amazon.com or any
other website, you need:
- An electronic mail address (email, e-mail); and:
- A credit card (Mastercard, Visa,
American Express, Discover, or Diners Club, issued by any bank), or a
Visa debit card (issued only by a USA bank), or an Amazon Gift
Card. Paypal is not accepted.
If you don't have an email address, you can get one for free at Google
(gmail), MSN (Hotmail), Yahoo, and lots of other sites. If you don't have a
credit card, the easiest thing will be to ask a friend or relative who has
one to place an order for you (but see below
about the secondary billing address). Once you have credit card and email,
come back here and learn how to order for yourself!
All prices in Amazon.com are in United States
, USD$. Payment is made in US dollars. When you buy something
with your credit card, your bank charges you the equivalent in your local
currency (and probably also a surcharge, because banks have surcharges for
||Other conversions (time, weights and measures, etc)
Also you should be aware that some countries, such as Venezuela and Cuba,
impose restrictions on international commerce, or have restrictions imposed
on them. For example, Venezuelan banks impose an annual limit (cupo)
of $400 on the amount of local currency that can be converted to dollars.
Hardly any USA website ships shoes or other goods overseas. If you enter a
shipping address that is not in the USA, in most cases you will be told that
the item you have ordered can not be shipped to that address. Therefore,
you have to enter a USA shipping address. To obtain a USA shipping address,
you can sign up with a package forwarding service
, as I describe here:
Most package forwarding services are located in Miami, Florida. So if you
are ordering from outside the USA, there can be two
one from the seller (such as Amazon) to your shipping address (usually in
Miami), and another one from the package forwarding service to your true
When you order
from Amazon, the shipping cost depends on each item, the location of the
package forwarding service, and the type of account you have with Amazon
(for example, if you have signed up for Amazon
Prime, shipping is free for many items).
The cost of shipping from your USA shipping address to your real address
depends on the prices and policies of the package forwarding service, the
distance, the shipping method, the weight of the package, and so on, and
then there might also be customs duties.
Registering your USA shipping address with your bank
As a security measure, many USA shopping sites check that your shipping
address matches the billing address of your credit card. But if you live
outside the USA, this will not be the case. For that reason, you should
contact your bank and register your USA shipping address as a
secondary billing address
for your credit card.
Once you have registered with a package forwarding service, obtained a USA
shipping address, and registered that address with your bank,
you can order from any USA-based site on the Internet, not only
Amazon, but also EBay, Target, Victoria's Secret, the Gap, Old
Navy, Staples, Bebe, wherever you want, whenever you want. You simply give
them your new USA address, and they never know that you are not in the USA.

Let's go shopping!
The first time you make make order is the most difficult because you
have to create your Amazon account and then (if necessary) another
account with a package forwarding service. But once you have done this, you
can use these accounts again and again very easily.
