Hi THHB,

just in relation to that, how do you set up the revolut card as sterling by default?
I am looking to renew a fire unlimited subscription and teh payment method is coming up as incorrect. i use a revolut card but it has rep of ireland address and this seems to be the problem.

is there anyway to get amazon to accept ROI cards for payments for UK based services?

thanks in advance

A Revolut card is a sterling card no matter what address you use when you sign up for Revolut. Amazon have no way of seeing your Revolut address only that it's a prepaid sterling debit card. You need to set a UK delivery address and Revolut as default in Amazon then contact Amazon chat to ask them set you as a UK prime account, they may ask you for your UK postcode that is all

hey THHB,

its funny cause i have actually done that for the firestick that i purchased, so to get all the access i got customer service to change location to Uk,
but still it says the payment method is not valid even though it is a revolut card set as default.

Even if i try to buy or rent a movie on the firestick it states it is not a valid payment method and to update.

Maybe i need to get on to customer service again

Update
Just checked my account and the address on the revolut card was ROI as default so i changed that to Parcel motel. Hopefully that works

further update

That did not work

I went on Amazon chat and asked them to change my location. The person I talked to said another department is going to email me. I thought it seemed a bit odd.

Only Amazon support can fix it. Get on to them again
