Apple do not want you to buy Amazon stuff!

When I open settings, there's no option to select this device (Google pixel 3). There is a 'alexa on this phone' option but no language option within that menu
Go onto Amazon chat and they will fix it for you.

I would say your account is set to amazon.com instead of amazon.co.uk

I was on to chat there ans they said I can't order it as I don't have a UK credit card or bank, even though I'm using revolut card and have most things delivered to parcel motel

No this should be ok. I just added to my basket from the alexa app on iphone also. Maybe just check all your location settings etc.

Did they say anything about needing a UK credit card or bank?

I was onto Amazon chat for ages and got bounced around to 5 different people. Eventually got it to work by adding it to my basket, then using the alexa app to checkout ("Alexa, checkout my basket please").

Got a rundown of what was in the basket and the price. Confirmed, delivery tomorrow.

The guy I spoke to definitively stated that the Irish debit card should not make a difference.
