Amazon Payments

Amazon Payments is a fast, easy, and trusted way for your customers to make purchases on your online store 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 at


If your customers use this payment method, you will be charged transaction fees for their purchases. To avoid transaction fees, you can activate Shopify Payments.

Supported countries

To be eligible for Amazon Payments, your Shopify business must be based in one of the following countries:

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hungary
  • Italy
  • Luxembourg

Amazon Payments only supports USD, GBP, and EUR. If your store uses a non-supported currency, Amazon Payments won't appear in the Payments section of your Shopify admin.

Activate Amazon Payments

To activate Amazon Payments for your store:

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Settings, then click Payments (or press G S P).

  2. In the Amazon Payments section, click Activate.


    If Amazon Payments is not displaying properly on your online store, it is likely because you have made HTML/CSS customizations to the checkout that are not supported by Amazon Payments. Contact Shopify support for more information.

  3. On the Amazon Payments page, click Get Started!.

  4. If you already have an Amazon account, enter your log-in information. If you don’t have an Amazon account yet, select Create a new account and follow the instructions on the Amazon Payments website. Make sure that you enter all the required information and authenticate your bank account in Amazon Seller Central.

  5. After you’ve agreed to provide your Shopify store with access to your Amazon merchant account, Amazon Payments will appear as an active payment gateway on the Payments page in your Shopify admin.

Customer experience

After you've activated Amazon Payments, eligible customers can Pay with Amazon during checkout:

Pay with Amazon
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.


If your store's theme displays buttons for your active payment gateways, then the Pay with Amazon button appears on your store's cart page instead of its checkout page.

Customers who use Pay with Amazon can access the shipping address and payment information stored in their Amazon account to complete their purchase. Their billing address remains private, and is not shared with Shopify.
