Amazon Wallet shut down after six months of activity

When Amazon Wallet launched in July, its purpose was to be a digital wallet that stored gift cards and loyalty cards from various retailers. It could not, however, be used as a mobile payments solution because of the inability to store debit and credit cards. The amount of installs for Amazon Wallet was presumably low even with the Fire Phone having it pre-installed.

The Amazon Wallet app appeared in the Play Store’s search results this afternoon:

But selecting it leads nowhere:

Amazon Wallet is gone.

Existing users of Amazon Wallet can continue using the app in a limited capacity. The app will not allow any additional cards to be stored and balances will not be updated. There are plenty of options available in the Play Store that match Amazon Wallet’s functionality and can store debit and credit cards.
