Amazon Inexplicably Removes Apple Card From Payment Options

Juli Clover, reporting for MacRumors:

Apple Card owners who had their Apple Cards stored in Amazon as a saved payment option this morning started noticing that the Apple Card has disappeared from the payment list.

Multiple MacRumors readers have notified us about the problem, and we’ve also been able to replicate it. Apple Cards are missing from the Amazon website and app and attempting to re-add one pops out an error message that credit card information is unable to be saved.

A few friends confirmed this happened to them. I have an Apple Card but never saved it to my Amazon account, but indeed, I can’t add it right now. Amazon support is telling people this is related to Apple Pay, because Amazon doesn’t accept Apple Pay, but that can’t be right because Apple Card works as a regular Mastercard. Must be a glitch, but what a pain in the ass, especially for anyone who relies on their Apple Card as their sole or primary credit card.

Update:

In a statement to MacRumors, an Amazon spokesperson said the following: “We are aware of this technical issue and are actively working to resolve it as soon as possible.”
