How do I find my Amazon Pay transactions?

One-time purchases are shown on the “Activity” tab, and subscription agreements are on the “Merchant agreements” tab. You can also view your transactions on Amazon.co.uk. If you are on a desktop, your Amazon Pay transactions can be found under “Amazon Orders” within the Amazon Pay tab or in “Your Account” under “Transactions”. If you are in the Amazon app, all transactions are listed together under “Your Orders” or in “Your Account”.

Is my payment information shared with merchants?

We do not share your full credit card, debit card or bank account number with sites or charitable organisations that accept Amazon Pay. The merchant only receives information that is required to complete and support your transaction. This information may include your name, email address and delivery address.

What does it cost me to use Amazon Pay?

The service costs nothing. Using Amazon Pay does not add fees to your purchases on sites and organisations accepting Amazon Pay. We do not add transaction fees, membership fees or any other fees. Your card issuer, however, may charge fees, such as a foreign transaction fee if your card was issued in a country different from the site on which you are shopping, as well as any other fees described in the terms and conditions for your card.

Where’s my order?

Sites offering Amazon Pay deliver their own orders to you. Also, you can enable Alexa Delivery Notifications through participating merchants to get package tracking alerts. If you think there may be a problem with your order, contact the site or organisation to address the problem. When you use Amazon Pay to check out, your purchases are covered by Amazon Pay’s A-to-z Guarantee.
