Has Amazon-UK gone BDS?
London’s retail giant repeatedly refused my DVD order, citing vague “delivery restrictions.” A service blunder, or a secret boycott? After 10 days, Customer Service reps are still dodging the question.
It started innocently: A simple online order during the annual “Black Friday” sales. On Nov. 17 after Shabbat ended, I saw a DVD movie I wanted at Amazon-UK and I opened an account. Everything ran smoothly as the system accepted my credit card, my address and my other profile details.
Until I tried to order the DVD.
I was stopped by a red-lettered advisory: “Sorry, this item can’t be sent to your selected address. Learn more [link to a Help page]. You may either change the delivery address or delete the item from your order.”
