The "foolish" (sorry) policy of Amazon, does not allow international buyer to purchase app. It need to have US credit card.
I strongly suggest not to buy kindle fire HD for international buyers till Amazon solve it-like Google and others

Amazon explains the international limitations of the Fire HD right on the web page for the device.

Well, there are some people who actually bother to read the information on the product page and don't particularly need your warning.

Yeah, Amazon complying with copyright and licensing laws is foolish -- because dumb people like you don't understand those laws!

Thank you for the compliment. I am buying for years in Amazon. Never had this problem with my international credit card

You never purchased apps from Amazon in the past, that's for sure.

It doesn't matter if you've purchased other items before.

Ummm, Amiram...the Kindle Fire is clearly described as a U.S. only product. I don't see how they could make it much clearer. U.S. only pretty much says it all...if you aren't IN the U.S., then you're not a U.S. customer. Doesn't matter what kind of credit card you have.

You really can't blame Amazon if you didn't bother to read the specs before buying. Why blame Amazon for your stupidity?

I do not blame Amazon for my buying. I take responsibility for it. I just warn others,who are not aware that it is American product. Good day

Because people who don't bother to do any research or read a product page when spending $199+ will certainly be sure to read your warning post on a forum.

You don't mean where it says, "The world's most advanced (7") tablet," do you? Nice try.

Twenty reviewers who did read that and where it says "If you're traveling with Kindle Fire HD, you can access any content you've downloaded to your device or shop for new books and magazines anytime you like. With a U.S. credit card, you'll also be able to purchase new apps and music for Kindle Fire HD while you are abroad. To purchase, download, or stream movies and TV shows, you must be physically present in the U.S. and have a U.S. billing address." probably didn't feel obligated to rephrase that for those who couldn't be bothered to read it in the first place.

You realize the reviews are written by other customers, right?

Weren't they supposed to warn him to beware?

I guess they didn't get the memo.

Say it ain't so! It should have reached him in 27 different languages, each on a different neon-colored post-it note.

Heads will roll!

I know, right? It's not enough to ruin another Christmas for international credit card holders, but they've even misplaced the order for my Kindle Scooter and I personally delivered all 27 copies on the requisite neon-colored post-it notes. Well, maybe I was just imagining that part but I have to blame someone. Ammit all, Damazon!

I think what we have here is a failure to communicate.

Posted on Sep 28, 2012 10:26:12 AM PDT
why allow international customes to purchase kindle fire with international credit cards, when it will be pretty much useless to them?

Since when is Amazon billing and shipping the FBI? Amazon won't ship it outside the U.S.
