Empress Mika: Amazon Wishlist / Giftcard Information For Models

Amazon Privacy and Fraud Tips For Camming Models

Many of us purchase from Amazon on a regular basis, especially as Amazon is such a popular place to shop​.

As such, it can be quite tempting to use Amazon gift cards or items purchased from Amazon as a way to obtain payment for your goods and/or services as a cam model, clip producer and/or phone sex operator.

After all, this is a way to keep 100% of the money spent by your customer and it can be used directly for any items you may want or need on Amazon.

 

Words Of Caution On Amazon

However, I’d like to caution all adult performers, especially those newer to the industry that with the following need-to-knows about Amazon and Amazon Wish Lists:

 

1. Amazon is NOT adult friendly

This really says it all. It is against Amazon’s ToS to use Amazon as a way to receive payment for adult content and/or services. By using Amazon, you agree to not use Amazon in this way. Doing so is at your own full risk.

This is not to say you cannot use Amazon as a wish list to receive gifts, provided they aren’t gifts in exchange for goods or services.

 

2. Amazon is NOT safe with your personal information

If you are using Amazon for a wish list, never use your real name or address. Instead, it is best to obtain a PO Box and/or a mail forwarding service to use with it. Amazon will display the shipping city and state on your wish list home page.

There have been many instances of Amazon revealing the shipping information to the customer.

 

3. Customers are able to cancel orders

This sounds fairly obvious but, nevertheless, very important. Keep in mind that, when it comes to customers ordering a physical item for you on your wish list, they can easily cancel it with no notice to you from the customer or Amazon.

Therefore, it is always important to obtain the item first in this case. Customers are able to purchase something, send screenshots or even have it say purchased on your wish list, only to cancel it after the good/service from you has been received.

This is a challenge because most customers won’t want to wait until the item arrives, especially since many adult performer services are in instant gratification and in the moment.

 

4. Amazon Wish List is NOT always Accurate

It is important to realize that your wish list is not always accurate, especially when it comes to customers cancelling an order.

In this case, your wish list may not re-update that the order was cancelled and it will state it has been purchased. The item will just simply never arrive and it will be up to you to re-list it.

It is good practice to check on which items are purchased but never arrived to ensure your list is accurate.

 

5. Amazon Gift Cards are NOT Guaranteed

To top everything off, there have been stories of customers being able to return un-used gift cards, even after they have been applied to your account.

In these cases, it is highly advisable to apply the gift card to your account and then spend the gift card amount immediately to avoid a return.

Of course, this assumes you know exactly what you’d like on the fly which may not always be the case.

 

Hope This Helps You With Amazon!

I hope these 5 tips on Amazon help you navigate and use Amazon safely and securely. In my opinion and experience, Amazon and Amazon Wish Lists are best to receive gifts as oppose to being used as payment for services. This also goes along with their ToS.

It is always advisable to use an adult friendly payment processor of some kind, such as on a cam site, clip site or PSO site to obtain payments for your goods and services as an adult performer.
