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.
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.
