Customer Question
I have changed my...

I have changed my credit card for my Kindle/Amazon acct but the old acct number comes up. I am unable to order any books and unable to change the credit card number. My wife and I share an Amazon acct and she has changed this information and she is able to buy books with the new acct number but it hasn’t changed on my Kindle. How do I change to our new credit card?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Kindle? What have you tried so far?

It has been going on for about two weeks. I have gone to the screen where I’m able to change information but the space where I can change my method of payment is disabled. It shows our old credit card number which has been stopped.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the E-reader Expert to know before I connect you?

I guess not. I am an avid reader and have ordered many books from Amazon via my Kindle. I’m so frustrated. One other thing I’ve tried is to shut down my Kindle device to refresh it but nothing has changed.

Offers you see for Remote Assistance or Phone Calls are not me recommending them, it is this website. I am more than happy to accept your request for one, but you don't have to.
