Affirm Onboarding FAQ/Walkthrough

How do I activate Amazon Pay with Affirm?

If you have not yet activated Amazon Pay, start here.

You can sign up for Amazon Pay with Affirm directly within Seller Central, and enable it for your online store as soon as the next day. Before you get started, confirm that your US-based online store is on the latest version of an eligible eCommerce Solution Provider (see below for eligibility requirements), and you have the latest version of Amazon Pay’s checkout solution. Amazon Pay with Affirm is also available for merchants who have an updated custom integration.

From there, log in to Seller Central and follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you navigate to Amazon Pay (Production View) 
  2. Go to the Gear Wheel in the upper right and select Account Info
  3. Under the Customer Payment Methods section, select Manage additional payment methods
  4. Find Affirm and select Get started
  5. Ensure you meet all eligibility requirements fill out the necessary fields.
  6. Select Continue to pricing
  7. On the following page you will be offered to see how the customer will see Affirm during checkout and the price per transaction. If you agree, select Confirm.
  8. Confirm your business details are correct and review Affirm’s Merchant Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Select Submit when ready.

Once complete, you will begin to see Amazon Pay with Affirm as an option within Amazon Pay on your online store for eligible orders over $50. Note: It may take up to 24 hours for Affirm to be live on your online store.
