Online shopping is great, but the process of getting your order is still a little tricky. Amazon Lockers are ideal for those that work or who have trouble getting their orders delivered, but unfortunately, they still haven’t come to Portugal — despite being in Spain, France, Germany and many other European countries.

If you live in Portugal, and you don’t have the option of getting it sent to your work, the best thing you can do is make friends with a café owner. Many places will accept orders on behalf of others, and couriers are more likely to deliver as it’s on the ground floor.

If you’re travelling to Portugal, and you don’t know anyone, you may be wondering what you can do? There are a few options.

  • Use Bounce to get the order delivered to a café, restaurant, or shop. You’ll have to pay a fee of around $5, but it may be the easiest option
  • If you’re staying in a hotel, phone and ask to see if you can get your order sent there. This works best with the places that have 24-hour receptions, as you know there will always be someone there to receive your order. Unfortunately, this option doesn’t work well with Airbnbs
  • For the digital nomads and freelancers coming to Portugal and planning to work for a little bit, you may be able to ask a co-working space to receive the package for you

Other tips:

  • Be careful shopping from outside the EU (e.g. the US and UK), as your order will likely attract customs fees and get held up
  • Amazon Spain (Amazon.es) is one of the fastest and easiest options for online shopping, especially now that Prime has come to Portugal (you can sign up for a free trial of Prime)
