Since April 2017, Amazon Pay customers can use payment methods already associated with their Amazon account to make payments for goods or services on third-party websites.
Amazon has launched France Amazon Pay, a service already used by over 33 million customers worldwide which allows customers to use payment methods already associated with their Amazon account without re-entering the details, to make payments for goods or services on third-party websites.
Amazon Pay reduces the time customers spend finalizing their orders for products and services and means the customer no longer needs multiple passwords to make online purchases.
As Giulio Montemagno, General Manager Amazon Pay EU emphasizes “As customers make more and more purchases online using mobile or other devices, their expectations in terms of speed, comfort and payment security continue to grow. By allowing customers to pay for goods and services using the information already stored on their Amazon account, Amazon Pay simplifies transactions and gives third-party merchants access to millions of Amazon customers worldwide.”
As far as merchants are concerned, switching to Amazon Pay, means being able to offer on their site all the comfort, trust and familiarity of the Amazon purchasing experience. This results in reducing the cart abandonment rate and thus increasing turnover for merchant sites while reinforcing customers’ trust; all purchases benefit from the security of a transaction managed by Amazon as Amazon doesn’t collect any information or data relating to the customer activity on a third-party site, other than the sum involved in the transaction.
