So I just got My Amazon Fire TV Stick and so far I am loving it. Its a really flexibly device and a great way to cut the cord and have all your content in a convenient package.
So while setting up my Amazon Fire TV stick I created a Amazon Account and associated my Account. All I wanted to do though was download some apps that I use allot.
On Finding the app through search I hit get and instead of downloading I got the error:Purchase Failure. I was confused regarding this error as I am sure you are too and that’s why you are here,read on for the solution.
The error reads: Purchase Failure
For your convenience,all purchase are completed with your Amazon 1-click settings.We could not complete your order because you do not have a valid payment billing address set up in your Amazon account. Please update your billing address by going to www.amazon.com/mykps in a web browser and try again.
Whats doe this Mean?
Most people would only read the first part of the warning. Also in most cases you have no clue as to why you are getting the error.
The error as indicated is caused because your Amazon account does not have a Credit Card or Address on file. This is needed even if the app is a free app that you want to download.
You may have gotten the error because your account is newly created or created for some time but you did not add any billing,shipping and credit card info.
Watch the video as I show you exactly what to do.
