When will I be billed for my membership?

Once you’ve uploaded and verified your eligibility for Prime Access, you’ll enter your payment details. Then, you’ll begin your 30-day free trial. Once your free trial ends, we’ll automatically charge for the next membership period using the payment method you provided.

If I’m not satisfied, can I cancel anytime? Will I be refunded?

Yes. You can cancel your Prime Access membership at any time by visiting your account and updating your membership preferences. Paid members who haven’t used their benefits may be eligible for a full refund for the current membership period.
