I want to know what payment methods I can use to pay my AWS bill.

Resolution

Available payment methods vary by AWS seller of record information. Your invoice notes the name of your AWS seller of record.

Amazon.com gift cards and PayPal aren't accepted payment method for AWS services.

Prepaid credit and debit cards are an accepted payment method when issued by the following card issuers.

Note: It's a best practice not to use prepaid cards because if the prepaid balance runs out, then recurring payments might fail. Failed payments can result in the suspension of your AWS account.

Hello,

There is no information regarding using prepaid credit card for using a valid payment method. Can prepaid cards be used a payment method on AWS?

Verification of VISA debit card is difficult unless I ring bank. CVV should be accepted so it can be automated.
