About Pre-Paid Cards

Certain restrictions apply to pre-paid cards.

The following restrictions apply to pre-paid Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards:

  • Can't be combined with other payment cards on a single order.
  • Can't be used to sign-up for an Amazon Prime membership.
  • Amazon.co.uk doesn't support entering the three-digit CVV code found on the back of some cards. If the code is required by the issuing bank, payments may not process successfully.

Note:

  • Some banks may require registration of pre-paid gift cards by name and billing address.
  • There's a £1.00 authorisation at the time of order to make sure the payment method is valid. This authorisation isn't a charge, but banks may hold the authorised funds as unavailable until the authorisation expires.
