Buying from Amazon US, although in another country
There have been lots of threads, how to buy from the US although not being a US resident.
I'm switching back and forth between my US and German addresses in the very same account.
But so far, I've considered this kind of a "loophole".
But, when checking my country settings in my Kindle account in Amazon Germany, I've found this (sorry, German) (snapshot attached):
Basically it says: "Do you want to buy from Amazon US? We're glad to tell you, you can do so...Simply port your Kindle account to Amzon.com by clicking the button below".
I can't remember, having seen this before...
And in the past I've needed a US address. From the description, I don't think that's needed anymore.
Reading this, the stories about Amazon killing accounts because of people buying elsewhere don't make any sense at all.
I don't find the same statement in the US account. So obviously you can buy in the US from "everywhere", but not the other way around (probably not that popular anyway)...
