AFAIK amazon doesn't accept bitcoin payment yet on their platform. And "if ever", you can see an option of bitcoin payment, besides some options like paypal, cards(debit/credit) when you proceed to checkout any item on their marketplace.

There's no direct way to pay with bitcoin, though you are able to buy a gift card with bitcoin for an amazon gift card and then use that online. Which is pretty much just like using bitcoin on amazon though it is going to take a bit longer to go ahead and use.

Wish it would be implemented directly, I guess they ran the numbers and it does nothing for them.

Amazon does not accept bitcoin.  Though I searched various sites to check and confirm whether or not amazon accepts bitcoin ; results are Amazon does not accept bitcoin till date.

Directly they didn't started according Bitcoin as of now but as we got the news from various site. They are making their own API to accept the payment since they are giant in e-commerce support.
Apart from this there is way to access the Amazon products with Bitcoin but for you need to have purse.io wallet with you.
You will be able access with the pipeline from this site after sign up then you will be able to get the additional percentage offer for using this site.

So far Amazon does not accept bitcoin directly. But you can use bitcoin to buy from amazon indirectly by:
1. Using Purse.io
2. Buying amazon Gift Card using bitcoin on gyft. Com
3. Using such services here on bitcoin talk.
4. Convert your bitcoin to fiat.

These are legitimate suggestions on how to use BTC in purchasing items from Amazon, though, indirectly. Many people posted their reviews about using Purse.io and most of them are good ones (there are some bad reviews but it's only natural to have those). Additional steps were added in purchasing things through Purse.io but you still get the chance to use BTC as a mode of payment for them. It will provide some hassle for you but the satisfaction that would get from it is well-worth it.  Wink

I thought that Amazon right now are accepting bitcoin as payment but Amazon is always preferred to use PayPal because customers can request to reverse payment when experience to scam unlike in bitcoin which is after you paid you can reverse the payment.

As of now the only one that I know is connected with Amazon that accepts BTC as payment is purse.io or buy an amazon gift card from https://www.egifter.com/buy-gift-cards-with-bitcoin/
So that you can directly buy on Amazon using gift card.

as others have mentioned, they don't accept BTC directly. they also recently changed their gift card policies so that you can no longer buy gift cards through gyft and egifter.

there is one solution: the copay wallet (https://copay.io)

there is a service built into the wallet to buy amazon gift cards. it works great---just used it the other day. one word of warning: you have to set your miner's fee to "normal" or higher, and it's a very high fee. it's totally overpaying. i paid over 100 satoshi/byte last time.

the upside is it's instant; no waiting for confirmations.

Correct, Gyft and Egifter doesn't seem to work as of now due to Amazon's new policies. Although I think one person mentioned that egifter had a loophole where you were able to gift yourself a GC, and then swap that GC to Amazon. But it's a hassle, and we don't know if that loophole is fixed. I don't know why OP said that Amazon started to accept bitcoin payments, though.

If you download the Copay or Bitpay app, then you should be able to purchase AGCs natively there still. Since Bitpay is a trusted company, it's your safest bet. You'll probably get a bit less than market rate, however.

If you are willing to take some risk, you could use Paxful to purchase GCs. Put up a buy advertisement for Amazon GCs, and make sure that you filter out all the obvious scammers. You'll get pretty good rates at a high risk of fraud. I personally think that purse.io would work better, since they have this $10k fraud reimbursement fund IIRC, and the discounts are still pretty steep.

Where did you get that news that Amazon already started to accepting Bitcoin as payment? can you give me any source? because I never heard any single news or seen an article about this matter, so probably your source gave you a fake news. Anyway you can still buy on Amazon using your Bitcoin, you cannot do it directly but with possible with the help of other services. I haven't tried this because I don't buy on Amazon but https://purse.io can help you with that or purchase gift cards from https://copay.io/ Newegg also accepts Bitcoin so it is also a great alternative.

If you open this thread, don't get lost please...
Firstly amazon has never/ever announced accepting of bitcoins, then add source wherr you reas that news.
Lastly, if you want to buy with bitcoins, you can contact some members here or buy amazon gift cards with bitcoin, load balance and then buy from amazon.
Can't see any other option, only these two.

I've used Bitify to buy various goods in the past (mostly gift cards), and it appears there's various sellers on the website selling Amazon gift cards for about face value in BTC and LTC (1:1) or less. The site offers escrow for you so there's almost no risk of being scammed, and I've never had a bad experience with them. It's a shame more people don't use the site- everything about it is great.

Here's an example listing from a trusted seller on the website for a $25.99 Amazon GC.

This isn't worth it. You can easily buy Amazon gift cards for 80~85% of its value or even lower with BTC. That's also the whole point of purse.io; The seller is basically selling his gift cards indirectly by redeeming them and buying what you want from Amazon, and receiving in BTC.

I've used Bitify to buy various goods in the past (mostly gift cards)-snip-
using that site involves risk, I do not mean scammers but buying stolen cards.
There have been many reports about selling Stolen gift cards from that site -----> https://coinjournal.net/bitify-now-looks-like-a-darkweb-marketplace/
The risk is not to accept these cards, but when you use these cards and shipping to your address, you expose yourself to the real danger.
I don't talk about cointrade, but I speak in general terms.

there is one solution: the copay wallet (https://copay.io)
This is probably the most secure/acceptable solution. I will try it.

Correct, Gyft and Egifter doesn't seem to work as of now due to Amazon's new policies. Although I think one person mentioned that egifter had a loophole where you were able to gift yourself a GC, and then swap that GC to Amazon. But it's a hassle, and we don't know if that loophole is fixed.

nope, the eGifter swap trick no longer works. it was taken offline in the last couple weeks, and apparently there is no ETA on bringing it back. it's annoying too, cuz they still advertise the swap method right there on the amazon GC page. that's how i ended up with a few hundred bucks in gift cards i don't need...

one word of warning: you have to set your miner's fee to "normal" or higher, and it's a very high fee. it's totally overpaying. i paid over 100 satoshi/byte last time.

the upside is it's instant; no waiting for confirmations.

i don't remember doing that myself but i might have been getting rid of bcash instead.

is that high fee mandatory? i'd be tempted to pay the lowest possible to teach those assholes a lesson.

AFAIK it's mandatory. i had set the fee to "economy"---10 satoshi/byte---which was the lowest possible in the wallet. but when i went to use the amazon gift card service, it forced me to increase the fee to at least "normal." the fee rates seem to be variable based on (i assume) bitpay's algorithm, could be lower now.
