After i published an article about how to buy on Amazon from Cameroon, i received so many messages from Cameroonians who wanted to know if its possible to buy on Amazon from Cameroon with Mobile Money and when i say YES! its possible, they will ask how is this possible? What are the procedures to buy on Amazon with Mobile Money???

Almost everyday, i get asked the above questions.

Answering the same questions over and over again is extremely monotonous and time consuming. So i decided to write this post to explain how Cameroonians with MTN, Orange and Express Union Mobile Money accounts can also buy on Amazon like the people with prepaid cards & debit cards.

Without any further delay. Let’s get down to business.

How to buy with Mobile Money on Amazon from Cameroon

As of October, 3rd 2020, US Amazon (Amazon.com) doesn’t accept payments for items via Mobile Money.

In this article i,m going to tell you how you can bypass this barrier and buy any item on Amazon with your Mobile Money account.

Amazon currently accepts only two types of payments which include;

– Prepaid Cards & Debit Cards payment.

Prepaid Cards and debit cards are bankcards issued by most banks in Cameroon which Cameroonians can use for shopping on Amazon and other online shops.

– Amazon Gift Card payments.

Amazon Gift Card is a card pre-loaded with a set amount of money which is used to credit (add funds to) an Amazon account for shopping on Amazon. Amazon gift cards are popularly used for payment by people (like you) who don’t have prepaid cards or debit cards.

An Amazon Gift Card functions like an airtime recharge card. Just like we buy airtime recharge cards from the MTN shops to credit our phones, Amazon Gift cards are also bought and used to credit Amazon accounts for shopping on Amazon “only”.

Amazon Gift Cards are usually sold at various prices. For example, there are $20 Amazon Gift Cards, $50 Amazon Gift Cards etc. You can purchase gift cards up to $10,000 in a single day.

To buy on Amazon with Mobile Money, you just need to purchase an Amazon Gift Card in Cameroon with Mobile Money and then use it to credit your Amazon account, and start shopping on Amazon with the funds in your Amazon account.

$50 Amazon Gift Card

Amazon Gift Cards are sold on the Amazon website. Without a prepaid card or Debit card, you can’t purchase an Amazon Gift card directly from the Amazon website. Like i mentioned earlier, Amazon does not accept Mobile Money payments. So you will need to buy Amazon Gift cards from Cameroon using Mobile Money through a third party seller (middleman)

To make Amazon Gift cards accessible to Cameroonians with Mobile Money accounts, I and other internet entrepreneurs in Cameroon (who own Prepaid/debit cards) often buy Amazon Gift Cards  from Cameoon and sell to Cameroonians with Mobile Money accounts.

I sell Amazon e-Gift Cards whose prices range from $50 to $1000. So if you wish to buy any item on Amazon whose price tag fall within that price range, you can contact me and i will offer you an Amazon Gift Card.

For example to buy a laptop on Amazon which cost $300 , you just need to buy a $300 Amazon Gift Card from me and then use the $300 Amazon Gift Card to credit your Amazon account. After you have credited your Amazon account with $300, you can then use the funds you have deposited in your Amazon account to buy any item on Amazon which cost $300 or less than $300.

There are two types of Amazon Gift Cards available for purchase which include;

  • The Physical Amazon Gift Card (in plastic form).

This is the plastic Amazon Gift card that is usually bought by people who wish to send an Amazon Gift Card as a gift to their loved ones so that they can buy any item of their choice on Amazon.

If you are not certain what to get your friend or loved one, a Physical Amazon Gift Card is the perfect solution. You’ll know you are giving them the opportunity to choose something they truly want.

This type of Amazon Gift Card is often delivered to a recipient by mail.

  • The Amazon e-Gift Card

 

Amazon e-Gift cards are intangible cards which are usually purchased by people who wish to credit their personal Amazon accounts. It often bought and sent to a love one who wish to buy an item urgently on Amazon.

When you purchase an Amazon e-Gift card, you will receive just a 14 digit alpha numeric claim code which you can use to credit your Amazon account.

In other words, Amazon e-Gift card is usually delivered to a customer by e-mail or SMS. Delivery by Email or SMS is 10 times faster than the plastic Amazon gift card option which is often delivered by mail and takes 3 days to arrive.

I mostly sell the intangible Amazon e-Gift cards to Cameroonians. Its needless buying a physical Amazon Gift card if you just wish to credit your Amazon account. It should be noted that once you have used a physical Amazon gift card, the plastic card becomes useless. Just like an airtime recharge card which has been used.

So i always encourage Cameroonians to buy the Amazon e-Gift card; which is what i and most Internet Entrepreneurs sell in Cameroon.

Its needless buying a physical Amazon Gift card and spend extra cash to get it shipped to your address in Cameroon just because you wish to get the claim code on the plastic card to credit your Amazon account.

The most important thing you need from an Amazon Gift card is the claim code. After you have used the claim code to add the funds to your Amazon account, the next destination of the plastic card is the trash can.

As of October, 2nd, 2020, Mobile Money is the most affordable banking and payment solution, offered by the Mobile Networks in Cameroon. It is a popular alternative to both cash and banks because it’s easy to use, secure and can be used anywhere there is a mobile phone signal.

The low requirements for opening a Mobile Money account has made the service extremely popular in Cameroon. Anybody can just walk in to their local MTN office and open a Mobile Money account with just a photocopy of their valid national ID and 300frs for initial deposit…unlike the banks in Cameroon which requires a long list of documents including proof of source of income, tax identification number and 50,000 for innitial deposit before they can open an account for you.

About 60 percent of the population of Cameroon now have a Mobile Mobile money account. Owing to the aforementioned fact, i strongly believe that this article will greatly boost eCommerce in Cameroon as Cameroonians (people from all walks of life) will (as from today) start shopping on Amazon with their Mobile Money accounts just like they have been buying on Jumia and other Cameroon online shops with Mobile money.
