Does Amazon accept visa gift cards? The short answer is yes! Amazon does accept visa gift cards. As we mentioned above, you can either redeem your gift card, or enter your gift card as a regular debit card on Your Amazon Wallet.
Unfortunately Amazon doesn’t allow you to split transactions with multiple debit, credit, or visa gift cards. We’re not sure why they don’t allow this, but as of early 2018, they don’t.
Note: In order to use a single visa gift card, you must ensure the balance on your visa gift card exceeds the balance of your total order. If it doesn’t, you won’t be able to use your visa gift card.
Sometimes a visa gift card will have your full name on it. Scenarios like this are simple! Just enter your card on Your Amazon Wallet page the same way you’d enter a new debit or credit card. It’s that simple!
While Amazon allows you to use prepaid cards for most purchases, there are some restrictions that apply. We recommend visiting Amazon’s page & viewing those restrictions.
