Amazon Cash is now available at nearly 8,000 7-Eleven stores in the US. It’s a big step forward for the service, pitched at online shoppers who don't have a credit card, or prefer not to use one for purchases. It was previously available at the likes of CVS, Speedway and GameStop, along with a few supermarket chains and convenience stores.
To load money into their Amazon account, customers present their personalised Amazon barcode to a 7-Eleven cashier along with the money they wish to load. That amount of Amazon Cash will immediately appear in their online Amazon account and be available for use. Between $15 and $500 can be loaded in a single transaction, with no fees charged.
"7-Eleven has long been an advocate for giving customers many options on how to pay for products and services," says Tony Stapleton, 7-Eleven Senior Product Director. "We constantly update and introduce new forms of payments to respond to continued shifts in customer preferences, life styles, and adoption of new technologies."
