Amazon has launched its Prime membership subscriptions in Australia, offering unlimited two-day shipping for a set fee.

The service, however, won’t extend to New Zealanders ......
 
yay :(
 
ah-ha .... sign up to prime video apparently

Well, I'm in Australia.

I signed up for the free trial on Twitch Prime and it says it cant link to WOT.  So, I cant claim the goodies.  I suspect it wont work unless you have started paying money.

I too have given up. Amazon Prime refuses to enable Twitch prime for some reason. They really need a better system as it's not working for a lot of people.

Does anyone know when the rumoured "second round" is coming? I'm not 100% sure, but I thought I saw a purple camo last night, but it could have just been that similar grey Ranked battles camo.

Took me a few tries but it did work after about 7 or 8 attempts, ensure everything is current including CC details - that seems to be the most common issue. Agree the process is extremely clunky, and does not seem to work reliably 1st time for a lot of ANZ's I speak with.

My CC has been charged about 30 times (and refunded) so not an issue with that. Have no idea why still failing, far too complicated.

Agree it is far from a seamless experience. My CC was never charged, though I do already use Amazon (.au) for Kindle and it's linked to Twitch.

It seems I'm one of the few that have no issues with the system, though already having Prime may be the reason why, I just hadn't actually linked my Amazon prime to Twitch and subsequently Twitch to WoT.

I thought I had it cracked - but it's rejecting my cc - After 2 hours of fiddling I give up (tried my Amazon/Twitch - Wifes Amazon/new twitch - new amazon/new twitch) - wonder if its country based issues?

I’ve given up trying.

i can activate the Amazon prime trial just fine, I can create the link between Twitch and Amazon ok, but when it try and activate Twitch prime it fails.

Chatted to support, they said the transaction was being blocked. 

Called card provider, they confirmed then whitelisted Twitch for me but still blocked.

Tried another couple of cards (all different banks and types. Visa, MC & Amex)

Still fails with the same error message.

 

Pretty much given up at this stage.

I suppose I can create another Amazon and Twitch account then try yet again, but not sure I can be bothered.

Probably end up with the same result, another loss of an hour of your life.

Be careful, the Australian selection process signed me up for both the Australian and the American website, could end up charging, so remember to cancel both if you used the free trial.

 

I tried multiple cards and accounts, none would get twitch to activate. On the help line they actually charged me instead of using the trial and we still couldn't get it to work. The twitch prime activation for Australia is a complete fail.

 

I had to sign up via Amazon Japan using a Taiwanese credit card :/ ....

Try activating Twitch through Prime Video instead of Amazon. That was the only way to get it to work in New Zealand .......

I did try that, but if you are in Australia it defaults to an amazon prime membership. I could have always pretended to reside in New Zealand I guess.....

I know.

 

But to rub salt into the wound the Polish HT line is the grind this month and I wanted the commander for them :(

So.... I decide to try it one last time and it just worked! :amazed:

I guess they had some backend issue that they must have fixed.

 

Bring on the Polish grind! :izmena:

I got it working.  I had to try MANY times though and kept getting the error suggesting a credit card problem.

 

I'm an Aussie and had an account with amazon.com.au   Easy to upgrade to Amazon Prime / Prime Video.  Checked all my details, name is matching, have money on my CC etc.  The main thing I needed to do was to try to activate Twitch Prime multiple times.  I kept getting the error but then after about 6 times tonight I got it to work, even though nothing had changed.  Good luck all!

My original US Amazon account (that I had been using quite extensively) failed to connect to Twitch Prime; same error msg as above. I then created a new local in-country Amazon account. That failed to connect too. Same with connecting via Prime Video. Tried multiple times with multiple accounts.

 

Bah humbug.

 

Cancelled all my Amazon accounts incl the original. Not buying anything else from Amazon with all these probs.

 

* nothing wrong with my CC that WOT was happily taking moolahs from *
