The “Amazon Orders” qube is a way for you to place multiple orders, with various Amazon items, without transactions being declined. Amazon billing is a bit weird, as your card is charged when the item ships and not when you make the purchase. This means that you could place an order today, but it wouldn’t hit your card until 3 days later when your order is ready to ship. For these reasons, we created the “Amazon Orders” qube.
If you try to use a “Spending” qube, you might end up with multiple failed transactions since “Spending” qubes are designed for immediate transactions. The “Amazon Orders” qube makes it easy for you to authorize a payment for Amazon that won’t decline the transactions because it locks to the merchant.
Here’s how it works. First, tap on the “Spending” qube you’d like the payment to come from and tap “Open Qube”. In the menu select “Amazon Purchase.” You’ll be asked to input the exact amount of the order and pre-authorize that amount.
Once you authorize the specific amount, the funds will be immediately deducted from the qube and added to the “Amazon Orders” qube, where it will wait for Amazon to charge your card. This feature will allow you to create multiple orders from Amazon for different amounts with ease.
(Keep in mind that this feature will only work for purchases made through Amazon, and cannot be used for monthly subscriptions, such as Amazon Prime, Amazon Music, etc…)
Anytime you purchase on Amazon, you should use this method. We’re aware that other merchants may charge at different times as well, and we’re working on identifying them.
