Add Cash to Your Gift Card Balance

You can add funds directly to your Gift Card Balance at participating stores by using an Amazon Cash barcode, or your mobile number.

Visit a participating store and show the cashier your barcode, or provide them with the mobile number verified on your Amazon account. You can then pay the amount of money you want to add to your Gift Card Balance.

To access the Amazon Cash barcode on your smartphone:

  1. Go to Amazon Cash.
  2. Click View your barcode.
Once you've viewed your barcode for the first time, you can save it to your home screen or digital wallet.

To use the Amazon Cash barcode without a smartphone, you can use the Print-at-Home option:

  1. Go to Amazon Cash on a desktop browser.
  2. Click View your barcode.
After logging into your account, you'll have the option to print your Amazon Cash barcode, which is used in the store for scanning.


  • Each Amazon Cash transaction will automatically add a new Gift Card to your Gift Card balance.
  • Funds are available immediately after you receive a receipt for your transaction. We'll send a confirmation notification to the email address or mobile number registered to the account.
  • You can view a directory of participating stores at Amazon Cash.
  • If your mobile number is not verified, the cashier will present you with a claim code receipt, which you must apply to your Gift Card balance on your Amazon account.
