The Amazon Orders Qube is our way for you to place multiple orders, with multiple Amazon items, without your transactions declining. Because of the way Amazon ships orders, each order may be billed at different times.

Amazon billing is a bit weird. They will charge your card on file when the item ships and not when you make the purchase. This means that you could place an order today, but it wouldn’t hit your card until three days later when they’re ready to ship. Further, large orders can be fulfilled by multiple vendors who all ship, and subsequently charge your card, at different times. For these reasons, we’ve created the Amazon Budget Qube.
If you’re an Amazon shopper, you may be placing multiple orders at different times. If you were to try to use a Spend Qube, you might end up with multiple failed transactions since the Spend Qube is designed for immediate transactions. The Amazon Orders Qube makes it easy for you to authorize a payment for Amazon that won’t decline the transactions because it locks to the merchant.
How does it work?
Here’s how it works. First, open the Spend Qube you would like to spend from. In the menu, select “Amazon Purchase.” You’ll be asked to input the exact amount of the order and pre-authorize that amount.
Once you authorize a specific amount, you’ll see the funds immediately deducted from the qube you chose to spend from. The money will then be added to the Amazon Orders Qube, where it will wait for Amazon to charge your card.
What makes this qube different from others is you’ll be able to create multiple orders from Amazon for different amounts that will successfully go through when Amazon tries to bill at different and unknown times.
Keep in mind that this feature will only work for purchases made through Amazon, and cannot be used for monthly subscriptions, such as Amazon Prime, Amazon Music, etc…
Anytime you purchase on Amazon, you should use this method. We’re aware that other merchants may charge at different times as well, and we’re working on identifying them.
