Default Amazon UK credit card options

What are UK sellers options when using a CC to open a stealth account?

Prepay cards are mostly toast.
Getting a genuine card will fail if it's linked to your banned address.

Is there another way or are UK sellers reliant on buying a CC in the forum?

Either

1 - Buy a VCC on the forum from the approved sellers
2- Use your own credit card.

A genuine card in your own name and address works fine most of the time. Best way to find out is by trying. Amazon don't care for the name/address, they just check the card is valid and there is sufficient balance (around 5 is an ideal balance).

Alternatively the forum marketplace has cards that have been tried and tested to work.

I thought part of the check made on a credit card is that the name and billing address match the card number?
Isn't this automatically done when they validate the card?

Your right on the money. However different parts of the Amazon site utilise different checks.

So if you were a buyer, the card would be thoroughly checked and verified.

If your selling, and simply paying your monthly fees, their just interested in checking your card has sufficient balance and is active. Name, address etc. are not checked.

Your fees are taken from sales at the end of your billing cycle, where there isn't a sufficient balance from sales, it gets drawn from your card.

Hope that answers your question.

Thanks for your reply.

So, as a seller, i just need a valid CC? The name and address used with that card is not important at the initial sign up stage?

Correct. Most cards will work fine even if your Amazon account was created with stealth details.

Use the stealth name / stealth address as the billing information to your own cards. If 1 does not work, try another one. They have a pretty high rate of acceptance as long as they're proper bank cards. Just make sure to keep track of the cards you use and make sure to never use a card you used previously on an amazon account

I confirm this is precisely correct. At least for major brands of credit cards (Chase, Citi,, etc), name and address do not need to match.
