The process is simple. To load money into their Amazon account, customers present their personalized Amazon barcode to a 7-Eleven cashier along with the money they wish to load. That amount of Amazon Cash will immediately appear in their online Amazon account and be available for use. Between $15 and $500 can be loaded in a single transaction, with no fees charged.

"7-Eleven has long been an advocate for giving customers many options on how to pay for products and services," said Tony Stapleton, 7-Eleven senior product director. "7-Eleven constantly updates and introduces new forms of payments to respond to continued shifts in customer preferences, lifestyles, and adoption of new technologies."

7-Eleven began offering online shoppers in-store conveniences five years ago when it installed bright yellow Amazon Lockers at select locations for package deliveries. First installed in stores in Seattle and Manhattan, the Lockers are now available in select stores in more than 300 cities. The Lockers provide access so customers can pick up their purchases at times convenient to them.

For consumers wanting to give the gift of Amazon, 7-Eleven also carries prepaid gift cards in two designs, the classic "A" card and a "Happy Birthday" version. The cards are fee-free, never expire, and are available in multiple denominations; from $25 to $500 can be loaded and redeemed for millions of items storewide on Amazon.com.
