amazon bitcoin payment

Amazon has recently launched a new service called “Amazon Coin” that allows users to pay for their purchases with Bitcoin at no extra cost to themselves. Now, you might be wondering how this is possible, since Amazon does not currently accept Bitcoin as a form of payment. The answer is that Amazon Coin uses the Interac e-Transfer (“IET”) system to allow users to pay for their purchases with Bitcoin. IET is a digital wallet that can be integrated with your Amazon account, so all you have to do is click “Add Wallet” and follow the instructions to set up a Bitcoin wallet.

Whether you’re planning to buy a gift for your mother, buy some clothes for yourself, or would just like to treat yourself with some chocolate, tea, or bottled water, Amazon Coins make all of these possible with Bitcoin.

Setting Up Your Amazon Coin Wallet

To get started, simply head to on your computer or mobile device and click the “Get Started” button. This will take you to the Amazon website, where you can set up a new wallet if you don’t have one already. Once you’re on the Amazon site, click the big green button that says “Start a New Wallet” located at the top of the page.

On the next screen, you will need to enter a valid email address associated with your Amazon account. You will also need to set a password for your new wallet.

After entering your email and password, click the “Create Wallet” button. Now, you need to click on the green “Next” button to continue setup. On the subsequent screen, you will need to choose a wallet identifier, which will be the name of your wallet (e.g., “Mom’s Birthday Gift”, “Holiday Shopping”, etc.).

You can also add a note about why you are setting up this wallet. Remember, this is not a deposit account, but rather a place to store your Bitcoins. Therefore, you should not store any sensitive information here, as this is a place where you can get your hands on your money if you lose your wallet or forget your password.

Once you’re done adding all your information, simply click the “Confirm” button at the bottom of the page. Your wallet will be ready to use once you log in using your email and password.

How Does Amazon Coin Work?

Let’s get to the good stuff now… once you’ve set up your Amazon Coin wallet with all of the necessary information, you’ll see a confirmation screen that states the wallet is now active and ready to use. From here, all you need to do is enter the address of a business or individual who will be receiving your payment, and the amount of Bitcoin you want to pay them in a secure way. Remember, you can only send coins to specific wallets or addresses, so make sure you’ve taken the time to confirm the wallet you’re sending them to.

After entering the required information, click the “Send” button to confirm your payment. Amazon Coins are sent to your wallet as soon as you click the button (called “Pay With Bitcoins”). You will need to make sure you are using a trusted Bitcoin wallet service to store your money, as sending coins to an unprotected wallet could put your funds at risk. If you are new to Bitcoin, you should look into setting up a wallet through one of the well-known cloud services, such as Coinbase or, as they will protect your money during the sending process. Some people prefer to use hardware wallets for storing private keys and other important information. These are very secure and offer the advantage of having a finite number of wallet addresses, which can be revoked in case of a hack or theft. Investing in expensive hardware wallet isn’t necessary if you don’t have to, though.

Using Amazon Coins

Once your Bitcoin wallet is set up and you’ve confirmed the payment, you can use it to make purchases on Amazon. Choose an item you want to buy, and all you need to do is enter the amount you wish to pay in Bitcoin (if it’s not displayed beside the item, you’ll need to click on the “Price Check” button to bring up the payment option). If you’ve confirmed the payment, but the price is still not displayed, you can also choose to “Pay By Amazon” and enter your Amazon account information, including your secure authentication code, to make the purchase.

Keep in mind, you must use your established Bitcoin wallet to make a purchase with Amazon Coins. If you are planning to use a different wallet for a different purpose (such as online poker or other unapproved uses), you will need to get in touch with the administrators of that particular wallet to get permission to use their service to purchase items on Amazon.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to send money using Amazon Coins?

Currently, there is no fee to send money with Amazon Coins. However, all transactions, including purchases made with the digital currency, are verified by Amazon to prevent any fraud or abuse. If you follow the above steps, you will have an active and secure Bitcoin wallet that you can use to send money whenever you like. You won’t have to worry about any extra charges from your credit card company, as Amazon will not charge any processing fees for Bitcoin transactions.

How can I get my money back if I don’t like Amazon?

This is definitely a concern for anyone who’s never used Bitcoin before and is wondering if this is a reliable way to make payments. The short answer is that you can’t. If you’ve confirmed the payment with Amazon, but the item is not yet in your shopping cart, you will lose the money you sent. Even if you decide to keep the item and try to get your money back through a refund, the process is not guaranteed to work, as Amazon does not provide this service and it’s completely up to the company whether or not they will approve your request. There is also the chance that your request for a refund might be denied, especially if you’ve used Amazon Coins for a purchase and the refund would reduce the amount of bitcoin still in your possession.

Where Can I Spend My Amazon Coins?

At this point, you can use your Amazon Coins anywhere that accepts Bitcoin as a form of payment. Some examples include online stores that sell clothing, electronics, books, and other items that can be bought with Bitcoin. You can use your digital currency to make purchases at restaurants, cafes, and other businesses that have decided to accept this form of payment. If you are looking for a way to earn some extra cash, you can even use your Bitcoin wallet to generate a small amount of cryptocurrency trading income if you follow the right steps. This is completely risk-free, as you can always just cancel the transactions if you aren’t happy with the results.

As Bitcoin becomes more popular and establishes itself as a secure and reliable way to make payments, more and more businesses will begin accepting it as a form of payment. In fact, one Bitcoin wallet company, BitPay, estimates that there are over 300,000 businesses that currently accept Bitcoin payments, with more companies choosing to do so each day.

If you’re interested in experimenting with Bitcoin, setting up an Amazon wallet is a great way to gain experience and confidence in using the popular digital currency. You don’t need to invest in expensive hardware wallets or consult with other cryptocurrency experts to get started. Simply get a Bitcoin wallet and start using it to make purchases on Amazon.
