Hi, I am a first-time poster here but I lurked Koohii for years… not sure if this is okay to post but there seem to be a lot of prolific readers who regularly downloaded books from Amazon so I’d thought I’d try asking.
I have been using amazon.co.jp to download and read made several (six?) ebook Kindle purchases this month. It has been fine with a made-up Japanese address and whatnot… But I began getting this message when trying to make a new purchase:
Please contact us or change your country to complete your purchase. You attempted to purchase an item while in a different country than listed on your Amazon account. Are you traveling outside your country? Please contact customer service in order to continue purchasing Kindle items. Did you recently move to a new country? You can easily update your country for your Amazon account.
My location is already set as Japan.
Has anyone faced this problem before? From what I searched most people don’t be a problem with buying eBooks from outside of Japan if the location is Japan. If not I would be wondering if there were other alternative websites for buying Japanese ebooks or is it recommended to start using a VPN.
