First you just go to http://amazon.com
and then you search for the product that you want to order, You can select add to cart or procceed to checkout.
You will be required to create an account if you do not already have an account with them.
Next step is that you would be asked to enter your shipping address. Make sure the address is very accurate otherwise the product will never get to you.
Next you will be required to select if your address is the same as the address on your credit card (billing address) if it is not the same, you will be told to enter the address on your credit card also called billing address.

Note that Buyers outside the U.S. cannot purchase the following types of items from sellers: video games, toy and baby items, electronics, cameras and photo items, tools and hardware, kitchenware and housewares, sporting goods and outdoor equipment, software, and computers.
For such goods, it is advisable for a non US resident to purchase the goods to a US address so that the person can then forward the things to ghana. If you have any trusted fellow in the Us, You can use his address to purchase the goods and then let him ship it to you.

Next you will need to select a payment option. You can see the payment after selecting your gift option.
This is the most Annoying fact. Due to a lot of credit card fraud in Ghana, A lot companies do not accept credits card s from ghana.
But some banks like Gt bank has a visa card that is accepted internationally online. Also paypal has ban ghanaians from registering for their service so you can't just register for a paypal account right away. On Other hand, you can get a verified paypal account or verified credit card that can alloy you to make payments online at popular sites like amazon at http://vccghana.com. I have personally used their service and i know the owner of that website personally so for online payments, you can visit them at their office at achimota or call them on 0243463595

Once you have a credit card or a verified paypal account, you can proceed to buy stuff online. Also if you are lucky, your normal visa card might work. Some people who uses ecobank visa cards have been able to purchase stuff online with it and the same goes for banks like gt bank and zenith .

So the the 2 thing you should worry about is how you are going to pay for things and how the things are going to be shipped to you. Since we have a solution for the payment, lets deal with the shipping more.

Assuming you are very local like myself and all your great family are born and breaded hardcore ghanaians who do not even no Togo,Then it is safe to assume that you do not have any relative or trusted friend outside the country. So how ship the things in this case?

i am going to do a little research for all those who do not have a person in the us or uk to ship things to. So i will get back with that one later.

Great question my friend.

You can successfully order, process and ship products from Amazon as we speak. How I wish I could let you in with all the details on Amazon GH. However, this Ultimate Guide to Amazon in Ghana does it better. I hope you enjoy it.
