Yes, you read that correctly. You can actually shop at the world’s largest online retailer and pay cash for your purchases! Here’s how:
1 – Log into your Amazon account (or open one if you don’t already have one) and then visit the Amazon Cash page.
2 – Scroll down and click the Get your barcode button.
3 – Choose whether you want to print the barcode or have it sent to your phone via text message.
That’s all there is to it. You should now be in possession of the barcode that’s tied to your Amazon account.
If you clicked Text my barcode you’ll receive the text within a minute or two. Simply take your phone to one of the local retailers listed on the Amazon Cash page and let the cashier scan the barcode.
If you chose to print the barcode instead of scanning it, the cashier can scan the printed barcode.
Either way, after the cashier has scanned your barcode you’ll be asked how much cash you wish to add to your Amazon account. After you give the cashier the money you’ll be given a receipt that shows how much you have to spend on Amazon.
The amount of cash you added to your account will be automatically added to your gift card balance on Amazon, ready for you to spend at any time.
