Introducing Amazon Pay on Stripe: unlock new possibilities for internet commerce

In the fast-paced world of ecommerce, providing a secure checkout experience is a must. Creating a frictionless experience with multiple payment options for customers further differentiates your business. That’s why we are thrilled to introduce Amazon Pay on Stripe.

Both Amazon Pay and Stripe were built for online businesses: Amazon for ecommerce and Stripe for financial infrastructure.

This new product launch represents a significant milestone, enabling businesses of all sizes to effortlessly accept Amazon Pay on Stripe and unlock a world of growth opportunities. Get ready to expand your reach to customers, increase conversions, and accept multiple payment methods for no additional transaction fees (beyond the typical card fees).

Amazon Pay is the latest in a series of products powered by Stripe under a strategic partnership with Amazon.

Amazon Pay: an overview

Amazon Pay has simplified the way customers make online payments by allowing customers to effortlessly utilize their Amazon account information to make purchases across a vast network of participating merchants beyond Amazon.com. With over 300 million active customers worldwide, Amazon Pay is a popular online payment method because of the convenience it offers customers. It eliminates the need to repeatedly enter personal payment details and shipping addresses during checkout.

According to the Baymard Institute, around 70%1 of online shopping carts are abandoned and 22%1 of customers abandon their carts due to a complicated checkout process. The streamlined experience from Amazon Pay improves conversion rates by 35%2 compared to native checkout, allowing businesses like yours to capitalize on impulse purchases and enhance overall sales. If customers are already signed into their Amazon accounts, they can experience one-step checkout for the ultimate speed and convenience when making purchases.

A lack of payment options is cited as one of the top reasons for cart abandonment among online shoppers worldwide. According to a study from Stripe, 85% said they would abandon their cart if their preferred payment method wasn’t available3. Amazon Pay has done the hard work to integrate with multiple partners so you can offer other payment options in addition to credit and debit cards. When you enable Amazon Pay on Stripe, other payment options such as Amazon Store Card and Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) with Affirm* are available without more technical work. By offering these additional payment options, you can make larger purchases more accessible and appeal to a broader and more diversified customer base.
