Credit card information for your seller account

When you register as a seller, we ask you to enter an internationally chargeable credit card with a valid billing address located in an eligible country.

Upon completion of registration, your credit card will be charged the monthly fee (if applicable) or USD $1 (excl. VAT) to validate the credit card.

We may charge this credit card if you have a negative settlement balance.

We do not accept alternative charge methods, such as prepaid credit cards, gift certificates, checks, or online payment systems like PayPal.

Note: If you have a positive settlement balance, Amazon will deposit the money into your bank account. We cannot transfer funds to your credit card.

We accept the following credit cards:

  • American Express
  • Diners Club
  • Discover
  • JCB
  • MasterCard
  • Visa

You cannot delete the credit card that is your designated charge method, but you can add a new card or select a different card from the list of cards you have entered in your seller account.

Use this tool below to know why your credit card information might be invalid and to update your credit card:

In some instances, you may be redirected to financial institution to verify your card with a security challenge, prior to being redirected back to Amazon. A separate security challenge may be surfaced to verify you are the card holder for each card you provide to Amazon, and for each marketplace you wish to sell in. For information about a problem with verification of your card, visit Why is my credit card listed as invalid.

Note: We may periodically run a validation check on your credit card.
