Why can't I pay for Amazon gift cards with Lightning?

Amazon has asked us to disable Lightning Network (LN) payments for Amazon gift cards while they review their internal policies.
 
We speculate that their decision was influenced by the recent ransomware attacks that involved bitcoin and Amazon gift cards.
 
Fold has not been provided an expected return timeline for LN payments, but we will continue passing along to our community any updates that we receive.
