    Hi guys,

    Most of my traffic comes from the US, so I set my main associates account up there using EasyAzon. I just got paid a decent amount by Amazon in the form of an "e gift card". I tried to punch the code into my UK account and it turns out it can only be used on the US account. The problem is that now if I buy anything even remotely heavy, I'll have to pay a fortune in shipping costs.

    Has anyone had this problem before and if so, do they know a workaround?

    Cheers for your time,

    James :)

    Cheque is the best option over gift cards when withdrawing money from amazon. Try to sell that giftcard to any US friend :).

    Cheque next time for sure. They take an age to clear though, that's why I chose gift cards.

    Can't you just sell it?
    Also see if you can use a Payoneer account to get your money in future.

    I hope that the comment is not serious and was just made in a lighter moment. :) Next time please be a bit more careful.

    The subscription-payment process here must be given its due respect in all seriousness, imo.

    P.S.:
    Simply en-cash the gift check as per the process mentioned in those related links, and pay the subscription in the right way. Hopefully you'll be a Jr VIP soon. :)

    It was a joke :) I was a Jr VIP before, so I know the process. Just haven't gotten around to re-subscribing. I will though.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I am in the same position but i have an amazon CANADA gift card, 950$ in value. No idea what to do with it, especially shipping canada to europe gets expensive. Any ideas or takers?
