Amazon Pay Explained


Amazon Pay enables you to offer Amazon customers an easy, secure and fast way to check out on your site using the delivery and payment information stored in their Amazon account. Beyond the button, Amazon Pay is also an easy way to integrate Alexa into your commerce strategy and is the place where shoppers manage their payment methods on Amazon.co.uk.

To enable Amazon Pay on your site, start by clicking the Business Registration button at the top of the page, and then fill in the required fields.

All you have to do is click the Business Registration button at the top of the page, and follow the instructions. Important: currently, you’re required to register for a new Amazon Payments merchant account in order to use Amazon Pay and Login with Amazon, even if you already have another Amazon seller account. You cannot use an existing Selling on Amazon account when setting up an Amazon Payments merchant account. The email address associated with your new Amazon Payments merchant account must differ from the email address you use for any other Amazon account.

We process disbursements daily. It will take between 1-2 business days for the payment to be completed and appear in your bank account. A reserve might be applied according to our reserve policy.

To help reduce bad debt and lower your costs, Amazon Pay employs the fraud technology that backs Amazon.co.uk, including fraud detection capabilities, charge-back controls and risk management processes at no extra cost. For more information, see the Amazon Pay A-to-z Guarantee Policy for Merchants.

These fees are only charged once the purchase is successfully authorised and processed. Click here to learn more.

First confirm that the enquiry is about payments on a third-party merchant website that offers Amazon Pay, and not a question related to purchasing on Amazon.co.uk. Once confirmed, please direct these buyers to Amazon Buyer Support: https://www.amazon.co.uk/help.

Yes. Please check out our registration assistance page for an easy walkthrough in how to get started, with each step you’ll need to complete.
