I found this same problem, tried so many different versions. Then I read above comment about finding correct postal code and I went there and what do you know mine was wrong, fixed it in the Amazon field and it accepted my address (including phone number). Interestingly my landlord has his own zip code wrong.

I have tried but found that in the delivery address it always says "Enter a valid ZIP or postal code". It does not matter what you enter it is always invalid. Even though I already had a Cambodian address in their system, it rejected that as well with the same message. Consequently it is impossible to enter a delivery address in Cambodia. I contacted their chat centre who were unhelpful and suggested sending somewhere else.

Has anyone had this problem and found any solution?
Were the help desk Indian by any chance, you new before you rang they would be useless, but we all live in hope :x
Yep send somewhere else and move there WTF

Yes, and they offer a lot more than the ubiquitous Amazon. Personally I find ebay better value.

Value is relative.

In the US, Amazon goes to bat for the customer. Item never arrived? Call Amazon. Get refund. Item arrived damaged? Call Amazon. Either exchange or refund. Item is a lemon? Call Amazon. Even if the seller says no returns, no refund, Amazon will force them to take the product back and issue a replacement or refund.

eBay merely facilitates the sale between seller and buyer. If the one buys an iPhone and it either never arrives or a piece of wood arrived instead, it’s shear out of luck for the buyer.

Good point. However, I've never had a problem with eBay. You can check out the seller's reviews and also only buy from US based sellers. The savings compared to Amazon prices add up.
