Thanks but I want to do 'GiveAway' and it's giving my e-books to readers randomly, not to friends or family.
I must buy my e-books for 'GiveAway', so I want to know about Public Bank Account in Amazon for purchase.
Do you not know how to buy things on the internet? You create an account, you provide your credit card information, and you make your purchases. Amazon's bank has absolutely nothing to do with anything. If you don't know how to set up a giveaway, go you your Author Central page and read the information, review the step-by-step process, and watch the video. Be informed. If you botch things because you don't know how a giveaway works or misunderstand what your responsibilities are (publicising, establishing customer requirements, setting odds, etc), KDP will not step in and help you out of your pickle.

Are you asking, How can I buy e-books for my family, friends and associates?
You can gift them the e-book, provided you know their e-mail addresses.
But be aware that these are true, general-purpose gift certificates and, if someone wants, they can apply the certificate to buy socks or laundry detergent, if they wish.
If they do use the certificates to buy your book, you will get your royalty out of the gifting amount, and your book will see a bump in its ratings.
With gifting, the "bump" in ratings only occurs if the certificate is redeemed by the giftee within 24 hours of the gift notice being sent.
However, the OP is, in his fumbly way, trying to set up a giveaway, not foist a gift upon an innocent party. As you know, with a giveaway, there is no chance for the lucky recipient to receive socks, a toaster or anything equally useful. Upon winning, the book is instantly downloaded to his registered Kindle device. The "bump" brightens the author's life. All ends well.

Thanks. But I won't use my credit card for this case.
Actually, what you mean is you will not be offering a giveaway, but that's up to you. It also means, however, that you'll probably not engage in any paid promotion since they all require credit card payments. While there are free services available, many are not effective and most require your book to be free to qualify for inclusion. It is possible to market a book solely through your own social media presence (Twitter, Facebook, etc) it takes more than a year of daily/hourly activity to develop any traction, then constant hard work to keep from slipping back into obscurity.
That said, any promotion, paid or unpaid, is futile if your book is not worth promoting. It may be poorly written, poorly formatted, or simply in a genre that has few readers and lots of competition. Before you invest time or money, you really need to cast a critical eye upon your work. Books are always worth writing, because, ultimately, you're writing it for yourself, but a book is only worth marketing if you have an audience wanting and willing to buy it. Good luck with it.
