Just on the subject of terrible interface, can anyone tell me if Baz Luhrmann's Australia is on Prime Ireland. JustWatch keeps telling me it is but I've searched just about every possible version of Australia, the actors, the director, etc. and can only find 2 documentaries by the same name. no film.

Seems to be bad info on just watch. If you search for Australia and then click on the prime video logo it links to a travel destinations, Australia programme.

Hi All,

Sorry if this has been covered I did skim the thread but not every page. Is there a workaround for the issue where you need a uk based credit card to pay for additional content? Perfectly happy to pay for the content but cannot with an Irish card, driving me mad when I am trying to purchase it legitimately.

Thanks

Pat

Would Revolut work?

I've had this exact problem and can't get it working.

I have UK region set by amazon, I changed my Revolut billing address to Parcel Motel address and I still cannot pay for any content.

Get a Revolut card. Its free & you can use it to pay for content

Your prime video has to be UK content. People who have Irish prime content shouldn't be able to rent movies no matter what card you use AFAIK.

You need to set your payment for digital services to the revolut card. When setting up the the card on amazon you will need to enter a UK billing address for the card. A parcel motel address in Antrim works for everyone. If it's still not working then settings are wrong somewhere.

There should really be a sticky explaining the UK/revolut option. About 80% of the discussion on the thread ends up coming back to it (this isn't meant as a criticism of those posting, I'm sure I had similar questions when I set it up).

I have finally figured this out. Firstly, I had done exactly as you said with my Revolut and the PM address. It did not work for me. I think it was because I had previously added the card and associated it with a billing address in ROI. Even after changing the billing address on Amazon and in the Revolut app to the PM address, it would not work.

Here's how I got it working:
Created a new virtual card in the Revolut app.
Added this 'new' card to amazon for digital payments associated with the PM address.
Now it works perfectly.
