Who doesn't like shopping on Amazon? However, as you're probably well-aware, Amazon billing is different. Unlike most merchants where you get charged when you complete the purchase, with Amazon, your debit card isn't charged until the item ships. AND, if you buy multiple items, they may all ship at different times, which leads to many smaller charges to your card, rather than just one overall charge for the whole purchase.
This means you could place an order today, but the card wouldn't be charged until three days later. Since you cannot anticipate when Amazon will charge you and make sure you have a Spend Qube open, we created the Amazon Qube.
How it works:
1. When you're on the Amazon checkout page and know the full amount of your order, swipe left on the spend qube you want to use for the payment, and tap Spend to open the Spend Menu.
2. Select Amazon Purchase and fill the Transaction Amount field with the number that matches the Amazon checkout page. This doesn't have to be exact, but you want to ensure tax is covered, so don't under-estimate the tax.
3. You may also add a note if you'd like. Once you're done, tap Authorize Purchase Amount.
4. Once you authorize the purchase amount, funds will be immediately transferred from your spend qube to an Amazon Orders qube, which can be found on the Bills Screen .
Amazon will then be able to charge you and take money from your Amazon bill qube whenever the item ships, without having to open a qube. This feature will allow you to place multiple Amazon orders for different amounts with ease.
In the event you end up canceling the order, you can move the money back from your Amazon Orders qube to the spend qube it came from.
Note: If you have a Joint Account, the primary account holder's Qube physical debit card information must be used on Amazon, as the secondary account holder's card will decline.
Another option is to create a Virtual Bill Qube for Amazon and use your unique virtual card number for these purchases. This option will work for both primary and secondary account holders.
