Talking How much does Amazon authorize on your credit card

If this was already asked, please forgive me, but I cannot seem to find it. How much does Amz authorize on your card when you sign up to make sure it is good to go?

Just wondering how much needs to be on a card when I go to get one.

Yeah I was just going to say that ...

Even though Amazon only makes a "test charge" of $1 i think it's usually best to keep $5 on the card at all times

it's says $4 right on the end of the sign up page and they say they have a way to authorize it without charging it so the answer is $4 or more!

I think they only times AZ makes the charge is when your account is under their review.

Before every deposit. I know this from experience as I was using this vcc that showed every attempt to charge the card every time. Even when AZ claims to make the deposit but never did. They check the card a lot more then you think!

someone correct me if I'm wrong, but ...

I think that every so often Amazon occasionally "tests" the credit card to see how much is on there without letting you know

I don't know exactly how much they can test up to but I think that's why my last stealth account got deleted

I used a visa gift card and spent every dime and only left exactly $1 and not a cent more on it ... but I was making $800+ disbursements and I think they tested it to see if there was at least $4 on it and found only a dollar and just deleted it rather than take the risk

I created two stealth seller accounts this summer using visa gift cards

the first one was DELETED unexpectedly by Amazon a few weeks ago without any logical reason ... except for the possibly the fact that my card had very little money on it (only $1 on the gift card) ... so I assume that was the reason

the second one (which I have $25 on the gift card) is still up and running just fine and is the one I am currently selling on

I was going to do a $20 GC and just leave it alone.
