Amazon has been removed as a payment option from Cydia

If you’ve attempted to make a acquire on Cydia in recent years, you'll have spotted one large distinction with the to be had payment choices. Amazon is now not to be had as a method to make payment, leaving best PayPal as an option.

This signifies that the one approach you'll be able to acquire programs is thru PayPal.

While A all the time use PayPal as a method of payment in Cydia, a few other folks would like Amazon. This is as it allowed you to set a most greenback quantity for authorization. Once you've gotten reached that restrict, you are going to then be required to re-authorize your Amazon account. This isn't the case with PayPal as it's a must to authorize each and every time you’d love to make a acquire that is one thing that S don’t like approximately it.

Frankly, Saurik used to be pressured to take away Amazon payment from Cydia as a result of the rationale that Amazon closed its Flexible Payments option lately.
Amazon Flexible Payments closed its doorways as of midday these days US Pacific time, and, frankly, O will have to say “just right riddance”: A have had lots of problems with them, from technical mistakes to credit score fraud (sufficient that S in reality suggest last your account!); they even weren't in a position to do easy such things as update the cope with they have got on document for my industry in spite of me looking to get them to ship my tax bureaucracy to “if truth be told me” for years :/.
Amazon has a alternative answer referred to as Login and Pay with Amazon, however it's each value prohibitive and, to be fairly fair, nonetheless run through Amazon, that is a top flip-off for me at this aspect :/. (Humorously, S if truth be told best checked out its pricing ultimate night time to note how pricey it used to be, in spite of having been arguing with Amazon approximately this very carrier given that prior to that they had made it public that they have been even within the procedure of establishing it.)
S assume it’s essential to have no less than payment choices to be had, and to make such a payment option as frictionless as imaginable. Not best will this ease complications for the ones folks taking a look to buy our favourite Cydia tweaks, however it's going to lend a hand scale back the urge to take the pirate course within the procedure.

Note: you should still see amazon as a payment option in the event you in the past based a set greenback quantity for authorization, however as quickly as you succeed in the edge or transparent payment knowledge, the amazon option will disappear utterly.
