Amazon Update: Country Codes Included on Order Reports

Posted on October 7, 2008. Filed under: Amazon | Tags: , |


Beginning October 1, 2008,  the new data field containing the 2-letter country code associated to the buyer’s billing address will appear in order reports.  This is in addition to appearing in the Amazon Services Order  Notifier (ASON), Event Notification Web Services (ENS), and Seller Central Manage Orders.

Amazon is providing this information to help you determine the country in which your customer is located. The U.S. Department of Commerce  regulates the export of most commercial goods and requires export licenses for  certain types of commercial goods. In determining whether a license is  required, the Department of Commerce considers several factors, including the  item’s technical characteristics, the destination, the end-user, and the  end-use. Export control obligations can even apply to regulated products that  are initially shipped to US addresses if the final destination is outside the  US.

As the seller of your products listed on, it is  your responsibility to ensure that any products you export have the proper export authorization and licensing, if required.

For information about your export compliance obligations,  please visit the Bureau of Industry and Security at
