About Mobile Phone Number Accounts

You can create a mobile phone number account through the Amazon app for iOS and Android smartphones.

Mobile phone number accounts are similar to traditional Amazon.com.au accounts, but instead of using an e-mail address for sign in, you'll always use the mobile phone number you designated during account creation. You aren't limited to just using the Amazon app for this account type. You'll be able to sign in using your mobile phone number on all other platform types (e.g., desktop and mobile browser).

Since there isn't an e-mail address tied to your account, you'll receive notifications and e-mails through the Message Center. For more information on the Message Center, see: About the Message Center.

Note: When you sign up for a mobile phone number account, you'll need to verify your mobile phone number. For more information on this process, see: About SMS Verification for Mobile Number Accounts.
