You can use an AmazonPay account to complete transactions for individual download purchases and annual subscription payments.

NOTE: While you can use AmazonPay to purchase a subscription annually, this form of payment is not currently available for month-to-month subscription payments.

Silhouette Download Card or Credit Boost Credits 

You can apply a Download Card to your account to obtain credit on your Silhouette account. If a Credit Boost is purchased, the credits are added automatically upon purchase. This credit type does not expire once applied to your account and can be used at any time toward individual download purchases.

NOTE: Credit from Download Cards cannot be used toward subscriptions.

Subscription Credits 

If a subscription is purchased, a monthly subscription credit will be added to your balance automatically. This credit will expire after 60 days, if unused, and requires an active subscription to remain available for that time frame. Subscription credits can be used at any time toward individual download purchases.

NOTE: If multiple credit types are found in the balance, expiring credits will be used first.
