When you place an order or sign up for a subscription using a credit or debit card, your bank may ask you to complete two-step verification.
For individual payment methods, the person making the purchase must complete the two-step verification. For shared methods, a designated person verifies the payment. If a payment method doesn’t have a designated person for verification, then the person making the purchase must complete the two-step verification.
In most cases, when you sign up for recurring payments on Amazon (for example, Business Prime), you will have to complete verification at the time of the subscription. For a free trial subscription without upfront verification, you must complete the verification during the free trial to continue accessing Business Prime benefits. You may be asked to verify your payment method if your bank declines a subscription renewal. You can complete a pending two-step verification for your Business Prime subscription in your membership settings.
You don’t have to be an administrator or requisitioner to verify shared payment methods.
If the person who normally verifies the shared payment method is unavailable, they must update their bank details so that another nominated person receives the one-time code.
To perform the two-step verification, the Amazon Business website redirects to the website of your bank. You enter a one-time code sent by your bank.
