Go to Below the address bar you'll see 'Your Account' Hover over that and click your account from the list. It will take you to a sign on screen and connect you to a secure server. From the list find payment methods Under that click manage payment. It will bring up the kindle wallet and you will see your card listed. click the arrow on the right side and then click edit at the bottom of the box that shows your address info. You can then change the expiry date and confirm it. Also check if that is the default payment method.

SOURCE: i have tried to change my credit card no on my kindle unsussessfully

You need to change the number on the Amazon site. Go to Amazon, your account, Manage payment options, will probably ask you to verify log in info, Click on Add payment method, You MUST set new card as default. That may be what you missed. I did it the last time I changed mine. There should be an option to delete old numbers.

I've lost my ability to buy books on my Kindle. Apparently itdoesn't recognize my card #, but my Prime account is fine. Help.

Go into your account and then the payment method. Check that you card number is correct, but more importantly, check the expiry date of the card they have on file for you.

No don't post card numbers here or the crazies will be buying stuff on your card and you will have to cancel that one too!

You can only discuss this type of question by going into your bank or phoning them.

If you want to pay for something until your new card comes, YOU CAN'T as it has to be validated when you get it. There is usually a sticker on it with the number.

My credit card has expired. How do enter a new card?

Go online with Place cursor on Your Account, click Your account from the list. It will ask you to sign in before it takes you to the list of what you can do. Look for add credit/debit card and click that. You can add something different of update the expire date if you still have that card.

I have message "There is a problem with your credit card on file". I can't solve this with the kindle.

I had the same problem when my credit card on file expired and I got a new one in the mail. Though the number was the same, the expiration date had changed so Amazon could not use it.

I had to log onto my account at Amazon dot com and update the credit card expiration date and that little security number on the back and then the problem messages went away.

I put in a new credit card but it doesn't seem to take it.

Check again at Amazon, My Account, Payment Methods. You will need to log in along the way. If it does not show click on enter new payment. You may be able to edit the old card to the new number and expire date. IF none of this works contact customer support.
