It’s a test transaction similar to when you buy gas (at least in the USA) to make sure the CC is valid before you dump 20 gallons of gas in your car.

That $0.01 will eventually be refunded by Amazon or replaced by the charge for the account. You should approve it so the process can go through, otherwise the card can not be verified by Amazon and you won’t be able to sell in that marketplace. In this case you will end up with a frozen credit card and a frozen JP Amazon account.
