Enabling Amazon Pay

Amazon Pay is a fast, easy, and trusted way for your customers to make purchases on your online store by using payment and shipping information stored in their Amazon accounts. You keep full control of the customer relationship, and your product-level data is never captured or shared with Amazon. Learn more about secure checkouts from Amazon Pay.

Depending on your store's Shopify plan and your region, transactions processed through Amazon Pay might be subject to third-party transaction fees. Learn more about third-party transaction fees.

Customer experience

After you activate Amazon Pay, eligible customers can select Amazon Pay during checkout. The payment process is embedded into the checkout page by default so that your customers can complete their orders without having to leave your online store.

Customers who select Amazon Pay can access the shipping address and payment information stored in their Amazon account to complete their purchase with an accelerated checkout. Their billing address remains private, and isn't shared with Shopify. Learn more about accelerated checkouts.
