  1. update just checked on my account on amazon.de and it says expected delivery the 12th nov and its been dispatched so hopefully should be here in the next week

  2. Nice guide, very easy to follow and a great idea!

  3. Thanks just ordered one using your guide- it should arrive in time for my child’s birthday. Why would anyone buy one from eBay?

  4. Brilliant walkthrough - thanks for saving me a fortune!

  5. Thanks ever so much. I have ordered many times from Amazon UK, but would not have been confident I was getting the same product compatible with UK unless I had come across your comments. Can you advise whether I can purchase additional games eg. Super Mario from the German Amazon or will it be German speaking?

  6. Spot on.

  7. Thanks -you’ve saved my life by removing the stresses of marauding wii shoppers on the high street. Ordered mine today, got a delivery date of 10 - 19 november. Fingers and toes crossed. Thanks again

  8. Thanks a million. mine should be arriving 10-19th November, fingers and toes crossed

  9. Had to remove the link to Amazon.de too, huh? Gits, eh?

  10. Thanks! Placed my order 8/11/07 - ordered 2 by mistake first time!!

    Managed to cancel it at no cost and reorder just the one, all using Google translate. Shipping date is between 29/11 and 13/12 with estimated delivery 1st to 24th December!! Fingers crossed.

    Does anyone know which courier does the UK delivery?

  11. It keeps saying this!

    This article can unfortunately not at the desired location to be shipped. You can either change the shipping address or article from your order, delete, by the number of units to 0, and then click update. (Countries with transit restrictions)

    What do I have to do?
    HELP ME!

  12. HELP !!

    Having read all the postings seemed simple to order so thought I’d give it a go and follow the extremely clear instructions above (thank you !) . But it really doesn’t seem to like Scotland - it won’t process past the address part even though they’re in stock. I’ve tried changing to GB but still not accepting it .
    Anybody got any suggestions ?
    Thanks

  13. Sorry just gone back to original postings page- seems I’m not the only one with this problem so its not just a Scottish thing ! Will await answer in the other forum.

  14. Hi everyone,

    I’ve only just got back from my day job and moderated your comments.

    A few days ago I got an email from Amazon.de saying that I couldn’t link anyone to their website due to the increase in demand from customers in the UK.

    I removed my links, widgets etc on this blog, and it seems that Amazon.de have now taken it one stop further and are now preventing people from ordering a Wii from Amazon.de… “Insert your chosen curse here and collectively swear at them!!!!”

    Unfortunately, it looks like that this avenue for acquiring a Wii before Christmas has now closed.

    Can anyone else shed some light on this?

    Sorry guys, if I hear of, come up with, another method of getting a Wii I’ll blog about it straight away.

    Dan

  15. I am having the same problem ,it wont let me past the address page,please help!!!

  16. it does’nt work

  17. I’m so gutted.
    I was going to do this yesterday but had some issues.
    Then I found this site and thought hell yeah why not.

    My bad luck GRR

  18. Gutted too feel like writing an email to an MEP surely it’s against European trade agreements, or something along those lines.

  19. Managed to put an order for a Wii in with Amazon.de before the ordering curtain came down….! Have had the email stating that its been disptached has anyone any ideas to who delivers these in the UK?? And if indeed theres any way of tracking the parcel with the couriers??? Just hoping it arrives and doesnt get sent back to the germans!!

  20. DO IT!

  21. IT’S WORKING AGAIN!!!!!

    Got mine ordered :-D

  22. Way to go Kelly - thanks !!
    Having lost all hope after trying dozens of times yesterday I tried immediately I saw your posting and think I managed to order one.
    I say I think because I used 1 click ordering and it came up at the end saying - 1 click ordering cancelled and next line thank you we have recieved your order and then listed the Wii. So i hope that means I’ve got it !!

  23. Did you get a confirmation e-mail?

  24. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Dispatch date 12/11/07
    Thank heavens for Google translation - don’t think my schoolgirl german could have translated the email - looks really cool in my inbox though !
    Thanks - if you hadn’t posted I wouldn’t have tried again I was so despondent !

  25. I have successfully completed the order process and I have recieved a confirmation email. Lets hope Amazon.de follow through :-)
    I will have some very happy children at Christmas (the wife too).

    Thanks Dan

  26. That’s the same dispatch date as mine Tina.

    I was getting ready to decide on another Xmas present.
    Glad you got one!

  27. Just this minute ordered from Amazon.de - the delivery date is now between 3 and 17 December.

  28. [...] So out of desperation I have taken a bold step and decided to take advantage of our European cousins and purchase from abroad. A quick search on google leads me to this site http://www.howaboutawii.com/how-to-order-from-amazonde/. And yes they have Wii’s in stock the only difference being the two pin plug instead of the UK three pin types. An adapter can be bought from most electrical retailers.After following Dan’s instructions and making good use of Google translator I have now ordered A Wii console delivered for less than the £179.00 UK RRP. Go Figure!!! I have email confirmation of this order, so let’s hope that Amazon.DE follow through with the order. [...]

  29. Wii from Amazon Germany due this week - Sorted !!!. But would like to ask if anyone has ordered Wii Play with remote from Amazon.de, I can’t get it from UK. One shop told me it has been out of stock longer than the Wii. Can I assume that the game will be as UK bought games and will be in English.

  30. i got halfway thru the comments n was gutted!! but iv jus ordered n im hoping it goes through ok! i have an email but with presumable delivery address of 13th november? is that normal?

  31. Hi again - its just arrived!!! That makes it just 2-3 working days since I ordered - incredible. Thanks for making this possible - I wouldn’t have taken the plunge to order from Germany without your clear instructions. Thanks to all who have posted advice about adapters also because I would’ve just used a shaver adapter. DHL delivered and it was a daytime delivery if that is a concern as a few people have asked about this. My order summary stated I would receive it between 13th and 26th November - it arrived on 12th. Now to buy some games - anyone got any recommendations?

  32. Hello, just ordered my Wii (12/11 @ 1700) with the help of your instructions! It all went through with no hitches, I live in Wales and already had an Amazon.co.uk account. The .de site says its due to be shipped on the 13th, will keep you informed! Cheers!

  33. hi think i have managed to order a wii through amazon de it says it will be dispatched on 13/11/07 just wondering how long it will take and when i go onto tracking my order it says somthing about checking for cookies ..any ideas anyone !

  34. Edith, I had the same problem. whilst on internet explorer (presuming this is how you access the internet) click on ‘tools’ on your menu bar then select ‘Internet Options’ then click the ‘Privace’ Tab, then click sites in the address box type “http://www.amazon.de then click ‘allow’ and finally ‘ok’ then retry accessing your account. Its inly so that amazon can create a page designed specifically for you (as far as i know), this worked for me. I hope you get your Wii!

  35. tried to order more than 1 wii got conformation for 1not sure about the other 2 got conformation but not on delivery i has been dispatched live in scotland

  36. Hi Debbie.

    Yes I ordered Wii Play bundled with a console on the 8th. I’m hoping that’s why my shipping date seems to be so much slower than everyone else’s though, as my estimated delivery is basically any time in December. There are people here who ordered just a console on its own after me, but have been given a delivery date much earlier than mine. Wii Play appears to be in stock and it says it will be shipped more or less straight away.

    I’m not sure whether I should be concerned or not.

  37. Hi there,

    I live in Scotland and have tried to buy a Wii from the Amazon.de site today but it wont let me. I’ve followed the instructions given but still no, does anyone know if they have put a ban on it?

    Thanx

  38. AMAZING, thank you soo much, I had tried Woolies, Argos, Currys, Dixons and was about to resort to EBAY!!! ordered my Wii last Tuesday, It arrived by DHL on monday evening !!!. To all those who doubt this is genuine… just follow the instructions above. A Wii at less than ARGOS price !! unbelievable

    Thank you (I am now ordering another to sell on EBAY my self !!!!

  39. I wouldn’t worry Roy, people have been given delivery dates in December, and received their console within the week.

  40. WONT LET ME PAST ADDRESS PAGE.

  41. Was delighted when I read through these posts, but I’ve just tried to order one using a variety of addresses and have encountered the problem that a few of you had - ie won’t deliver to UK? Don’t suppose any of you have any ideas?

  42. Any one tried to order from amazon.de today..? just tried and it wont accept the uk address..
    Translated - google.

    *** This article is not to the person you sent desired location. You can either change the shipping address or article from your order, delete, by the number of units to 0, and then click update. (Countries with transit restrictions) ***

    so i guess they’re not shipping to uk anymore

  43. they have now banned UK orders now, it’s coming up with this message:

    “*** Dieser Artikel kann leider nicht an den von Ihnen gewünschten Ort versandt werden. Sie können entweder die Versandadresse ändern oder den Artikel aus Ihrer Bestellung löschen, indem Sie die Stückzahl auf 0 setzen und anschließend auf “Aktualisieren” klicken. ( Länder mit Versandbeschränkungen) ***”

    which roughly translates as:

    “this item cannot be posted to you current location”

  44. Hi.
    Followed your instructions and bought my Wii from Amazon.de on 7th November and it arrived less than 48 hours later on 9th!!!!! Also ordered a copy of Wii Play (plus remote) from Virgin Megastores online for £27 on the same day but it still hasn’t been dispatched. Only problem I had was finding an Overseas to UK adapter - all my local B&Q’s had sold out - so the word must be spreading. Found one in the end but suggest changing fuse to 3 amp in line with the UK plug rating.
    Cpt

  45. Hi, have been trying all afternoon on the .de site, and looks like they have stopped all the uk purchasing.

  46. Thank-you very much for a great saving and also the fact that a littlie one will not be disappointed on christmas day. Ordered the item last Tuesday evening and received to my home address on the following Monday so it was less than 4 working days. Well done and thanks again.

  47. Finished now though, no more UK deliveries allowed form DE or FR amazon :(

  48. Is that what they have said Dave?
    Phewph, got mine just in time.

    Although it came up with the same message on Friday, then worked Saturday night

  49. DONT SEPAIR WITH THE RECENT COMMENTS. I HAVE ORDERED ONE MORE FROM AN AMAZON 3RD PARTY. IT IS LISTED UNDER NEW AND USED AND COMES FROM AN INDEPENDENT RETAILER WHO SELLS THRU AMAZON. EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE U.K. THEY ARE SLIGHTLY MORE EXPENSIVE AT 287 EUROS BUT STILL A LOT CHEAPER THAN RETAILERS IN THE U.K IF YOU CAN GET ONE. INSTEAD OF KLICKING IN THE NEU KAFEN CLICK ON ANGEBOTE WHICH MEANS NEW AND USED THEN LISTED WILL BE SOME USED THEN SOME NEW. THEY WILL BE DISPATCHED DIRECTLY FROM THE RETAILER THEMSELVES . MINES IS BEING DISPATCHED ON THE 16TH NOV DELIVERY 2 WORKING DAYS. GOOD LUCK

  50. OK THANKS FOR THE TIPS.

    I THINK THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE ON GOOGLE WHO WILL FIX YOUR CAPS LOCK BUTTON. I’M GETTING MINE FIXED TONIGHT!

  51. further info from amazon.de (Germany)..they have stopped all wii shipments to the U.K ..they stopped on 13/11/07..as amazon.uk now are selling them at rediculous prices

  52. Wii’s available from another online german retailer!

    Website is in english

    Go to my homepage and get there now!!!

    Or click here to go there direct

  53. Hi All

    Ordered Wii from Amazon.DE on Sunday and to my suprise arrived today (wednesday) !!!!!!! If I had ordered it from the UK I could not have recieved it any faster. There will be some happy kids(and wife) at christmas.
    Thanks Dan.
    Enjoy a pint on me.

    Regards

    Markc
    aka ConcreteChicken

  54. Thank you, I’ve been trying Amazon.de all night with no luck, discovered your site which not only explains why but provided an alternative which I’ve now ordered from. You have earned some serious good karma there!

  55. Yes the German’s are no longer playing ball.

    So much for free trade accross the European Union - didn’t some of the Car Manufacturers get finded for this type of behaviour? Surely it’s restriction of trade

  56. I did this last week, cost me about £4 DHL from Germany.

    It was ordered on the Thursday, and came the following Monday.

    Took it out of the box, UK handbook, it asks you what language you want, and them we played - My little girl will be so happy.

    Someone said I should have bought loads and sold them for £400 each, but I am not like that, if it helps you please mail me I am genuine davepunter@tiscali.co.uk and I know the stress you are having.

    Also, the only down side is it comes with a european two pin plug, however, I bought one from Maplins for £5 (ish) delivered, which just slips ontop and then it screws down (no one will ever know).

    I know what you are thinking… but this is Amazon? It even comes in an Amazon FR / Amazon DE / Amazon UK box.

    I cannot beleive that Amazon are charging so much in the UK, also, on Ebay they are in there, and they are german anyway??

    The best of luck getting one.

  57. Its not just the germans, the .fr site also is doing the same thing. i hope that they get fined and have lots of angry customers :)

  58. Hi all,

    Just placed an order for Nintendo wii at http://www.computeruniverse.net which is based in Germany, delivery should be between 3 - 14 days, my fingers are crossed. Total price including delivery was £202

  59. HOW SECURE IS THIS OTHER GERMAN WEBSITE AND HOW DO I CHANGE PAYMENT METHOS????

  60. Has anyone got one from Computer Universe? How long did it take?

  61. Hi, i just tried to order wii from amazon.de site but got the same message as some people……This article can unfortunately not at the desired location to be shipped. You can either change the shipping address or article from your order, delete, by the number of units to 0, and then click update. (Countries with transit restrictions)….guess my partner will have to keep on wanting……

  62. Just tried all the above for the last 3 hours and got nowhere!!! Followed the link on the post from ‘dhibell’ above and have managed to get one for £177!!!!, will let you know when it arrives.

  63. I ordered a wii from amazon de on 5 November and was delivered by DHL on 8 Nov

  65. My Wii arrived today!

    It took 6 days to arrive.
    Brilliant

  66. Thanks to a different tip I ordered mine on Monday and it arrived from .de yesterday (15th Nov). Considering even Play.com are charging over £300 for the basic pack now I am glad I did!

    Now to go on the hunt for accessories!

  67. Hi there,

    Sorry to ask but I’m getting a little worried. Ordered my Wii on Amazon.de on the 6th November and was originally told it would arrive between the 20th-24th November (which although is much longer than some people is still well before Christmas so not a problem). Amazon.de then sent an e-mail to say the item was dispatched and would arrive early on the 13th November (really a bonus). However, its now the 16th and although the money has now been taken by amazon I have no Wii here 3 days after it should have been. I’ve checked the amazon.de website but with no luck so far (still says it should be here on the 13th). Any help would be great.

  68. I’m thinking of ordered the Wii Play with free remote off amazon.de.
    Does it anyone know if it will play in English?

    L - Ring up your local post offices, see if they have had a package as it may of been delivered but taken to one of those.

    If no luck, get someone who can speak German to ring up amazon, or ring up DHL and give them your package number

  69. I followed your instructions but could not get to the payment screen - have they changed it to stop us ordering. Please help!!!!! This was the message.
    Bitte beachten Sie
    Bei Ihrer Bestellung ist ein kleines Problem aufgetreten (siehe unten).

    *** Dieser Artikel kann leider nicht an den von Ihnen gewünschten Ort versandt werden.

  70. just tried and got a different screen. went on http://www.freetranslation.com to translate it and it said” that unable to deliver to the address given as the uk was on their ” restricted country list” so my quest goes on

  71. Anyone know if wii’s from France can be used in the UK, hubby needs to buy wii’s for a raffle prize and has chance of couple from France but I thought the French ones don’t use the PAL system. Can anyone help before these get sold one.

    PS told my hubby to order from amazon.de when I ordered one for my nephew, it came within a week but he didn’t listen did he !!!!!

  72. Roy
    I order mine along with accessories extra remote etc on 8th and had same delivery date expected as you. Still not heard anything either. Ordered games from amazon UK and they are expected any date up to 5th Jan! Fingers crossed

  73. DHL tried to deliver to my home yesterday but no-one was home. I went to their local depot and picked it up tonight. Hope yours turns up soon too Diane. Have you had an email to say it’s left Germany yet? I got one on the 17th.

  74. This is how the email started:-

    Guten Tag,
