Document rejection

Important: We reject documents when we can't verify them or when they don't meet our criteria. Our decision to approve or reject a document is final and cannot be appealed, although you can re-apply with a new account.

Amazon requires two documents in order to verify your identity. To avoid having your documents rejected, make sure they meet the following criteria:

Identity documents:

  • Must show a full document page, or in case of national identity cards, both sides of the card
  • Must be a government-issued identity card that is distributed and recognized by the country where you are a citizen or resident

Bank account or credit card statements:
