When we called Amazon.com, we were greeted with an automated system that explained we must hold in order to speak with a customer service representative. After approximately 45 seconds, the customer service representative answered the phone. The agent spoke clear English and quickly answered our question about returning an item. We called back two additional times and we received the same service. The call center appears to be located in the United States and the phone number rings straight to customer service without an automated maze of recorded messages.
We sent an email to customer service to the above email address inquiring about the anticipated response time relating to customer concerns. An automated response arrived in our email within 2 hours. The information was helpful and pointed us in the right direction, see below:
