- Amazon Simple Pay - Amazon Simple Pay is a set of payment-only products that allow your customers to use payment information from their Amazon.com account as a payment method on your website.
- Checkout by Amazon - Checkout By Amazon is a complete checkout solution that leverages Amazon's e-commerce capabilities and offers your customers a familiar, trusted experience.
Both of these new services enable merchants to accept Amazon payments on their website and provide for world class fraud protection and consumer protection with the Amazon A-to-Z guarantee.
Amazon's new services also work seamlessly with Amazon FBA: "Checkout by Amazon combined with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) enables you to outsource both transaction processing and fulfillment."
The fee structure is similar to PayPal and both checkout services offer website owners access to Amazon's over 80 million active user accounts. Merchants can now offer Amazon payments on their website as an additional payment option or a complete integrated solution.
Now, I wonder if eBay will allow Amazon Payments on eBay.com :) It really can't be argued that Amazon Payments is un-safe.
