    Some Really Weird Stuff Going On Friday, August 23, 2019




    Okay, well...as most of us know, Amazon Payments (AP) is messed up in a bad way. Many of us had trouble transferring money yesterday...and at the end of the day...many of us had a negative balance (some of us a big one) in our Amazon Payments account. Here's what's happened to me so far:

    Yesterday Morning I transferred $22.60 from AP to my bank account. It errored several times and then finally went through a few hours later. By nightfall, my AP account showed a $45.20 balance. This morning, the $22.60 went into my bank account just as it should have, and it went in an additional 2 times. Those additional two times add up to...guess what...$45.20.

    It appears, at closer inspection, that each time I tried to transfer, and got the error...it sent the money anyway.

    The question is...what's going on here ? What's Amazon going to do now ? Did some of you get thousands of dollars of "extra" deposited into your banks ?

    I strongly caution everyone not to make another transfer at this time.

    I haven't dared attempt any withdrawls, that sounds like a pain in the butt

      I've got a negative balance as well, not sure what Amazon is going to do to fix this mess. The money I moved into my account yesterday says it transfer to Amazon but it doesn't show up anywhere.

      I didn't hear about this, and had a payment process at 7pm. Time stamp in my bank was 6:52am. I guess I was lucky.

    My initial withdrawal was 203.20 which kept failing about 6 times. I looked at AP and my balance was $-1219.20. A few hours later, all of my attempted withdrawals were deposited into my bank account. I don't know how this is going to be fixed but it's frustrating because I have bills to pay but I'm afraid to even spend anything at all in my account.

        Good morning!


        I haven't tried any withdrawals and I don't think I will until it is straightened out. Sounds like a crazy mess.

          My question is : Will we "know" when it is straightened out ?

          I guess when Amazon tells us. Fat chance of that happening. Probably when some brave soul tries it and says it worked.

          Well I will be transferring money to AP probably tomorrow so I can withdraw Sunday and have money on Monday, so we will see where that goes, I will make sure to let everyone know.

        What a mess with the money transfer. What is Amazon going to do now? Can they get money back from your bank? I hope not without your authorization. They will do something stupid like empty your account.

          That's another one of my concerns.

          I have been thinking about that all night. I think that they can technically without your authorization take back out the money that they accidentally over deposited, or they will have to just go good faith and give you x amount of time to put that money back into you AP account prior to them taking legal action. I guess maybe someone should read their legal stuff today if time allots to see if there is anything in those articles regarding something of this nature.

          Saw this on Reddit from 13 hours ago about the payments issue. "the rep said that the technical coding team has repaired the issue. However, it will still (in most cases) take 24-48 for "pending" withdrawals (aka failed ones) to complete."
