I went into www.amazon.com/mycd, selected settings, edit payment method, then add a card. It accepted the new details, but that's it, I can't buy/use it.
Electronics Technician: Richard, Customer Service replied 5 months ago

Ok, are you sure you signed in using the same Amazon account that is being used on your Kindle?

Electronics Technician: Richard, Customer Service replied 5 months ago

On the Kindle Click on the 3-bar button on the top right, then click on Settings. Next, click on 'Device Options'. On the next screen, click on 'Personalize your Kindle'.

There you see the amazon account used on the Kindle, are you 100% sure your account is the same as used on the computer? As this is the most common cause

Please let me know

Ok, on my kindle screen it say's Anabela's Kindle, on the computer it says Anabela's Amazon, have I made an oops !!!
Electronics Technician: Richard, Customer Service replied 5 months ago

Yes you have, you are signing in on the computer with the wrong email account.

On your computer at www.amazon.com, click on your name in the top right and click on sign out.

Once done, then sign in but make sure you sign in with the same account used on the Kindle.

Then update your credit card details.

Let me know please how you go

Thank you
