Cardtronics Makes It Easy for Customers to Shop on Amazon by Adding Cash Into Their Amazon Balance Using Just a Phone Number; No Cards Required
Cardtronics, the world’s largest ATM operator, announced that Amazon customers can now complete Amazon Cash transactions at more than 400 cash-accepting Cardtronics ATMs in the US. The ATMs, part of the Allpoint+ Network of surcharge-free deposit-taking ATMs for Allpoint members, operate card-free, allowing Amazon customers to add cash to their Amazon Balance to make future purchases on Amazon’s online store using only the phone number linked to their Amazon account with no added fees.
Customers start by verifying their mobile phone number and identifying a participating Allpoint+ ATM location at amazon.com/amazoncash. Once at a participating location, the customer can add cash in any amount between $5 and $500 to their Amazon Balance by simply entering their mobile phone number; no card required. After payment, an Amazon.com Gift Card is automatically applied to the customer’s Amazon Balance and available for use on Amazon.com.
The Allpoint+ Network is located in major retail establishments in over a dozen large metropolitan areas, including New York, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and Miami. Additional ATM placements across major U.S. cities will continue to be added to this network.
“Cardtronics Allpoint+ with Amazon Cash is providing more access and more choice for millions of cash-centric consumers by leveraging the power of our extensive network of convenient ATM locations,” said Brad Nolan, EVP Allpoint Solutions at Cardtronics. “Freeing the ATM from the constraints of traditional debit cards allows us to offer secure and convenient services to a virtually unlimited variety of digital accounts, well outside traditional checking and savings programs.”
