To add new books to your Kindle, you need to keep a credit or debit card on file with Amazon. This credit card becomes your Amazon "1-Click" card, so Amazon will charge any purchase you make with the "1-Click" option (including non-Kindle purchases) to the card. You can update your credit card information, like billing address or expiration date, or you can use a different credit card through your Amazon "Manage Your Kindle" page.

Step 1

Log into your Amazon account.

Step 2

Go to the "Manage Your Kindle" page.

Step 3

Click the "Edit" link next to your credit card listed under the "Your Default 1-Click Payment Method" section.

Step 4

Select a different credit card (if you have multiple cards on file with Amazon). You can also enter new credit card information under the "Pay with a new card" section.

Step 5

Click the "Continue" button. The Billing Address page opens.

Step 6

Select a billing address from the addresses you have on file with Amazon. You can enter a new address under the "Or enter a new billing address" section. Click the "Continue" button after you enter a new address. The Manage Your Kindle page reopens.
