Alexa Political Contributions enables you to donate money to participating 2020 U.S. presidential campaigns who have elected to accept contributions through Alexa and completed our onboarding process.
Starting this October, you can donate to any participating 2020 U.S. presidential candidate using Alexa. Just say “Alexa, I want to make a political contribution” or “Alexa, donate [amount] to [candidate name].” You can only donate to campaigns that have completed our onboarding process.
The minimum donation amount using Alexa is $5. You can donate a total of $200 per campaign using Alexa for each election cycle.
To donate to a political campaign using Alexa you must be at least 18 years old and a U.S. citizen or lawfully admitted permanent resident (i.e., green card holder); you must not be a federal government contractor; your contribution must be made in your own name and from your own funds, and funds must not be provided to you by another person or entity for the purpose of making the contribution; and you must make the contribution with your own personal payment method and not with a corporate or business payment instrument or a payment instrument issued to another person.
Alexa can only help you donate to presidential campaigns that have completed set up to accept donations on Alexa.
Amazon Pay makes it simple for hundreds of millions of customers around the globe to pay for products and services using the information already stored in their Amazon accounts. To make a payment, you can use any of the payment methods in your Amazon account.
If you already have an account with Amazon, you only have to accept our Customer Agreement when making a purchase on a non-Amazon site that accepts Amazon Pay. There is no separate registration process.
Go to pay.amazon.com and sign in as a “shopper” using your Amazon username and password. One-time purchases are shown on the “Orders” tab, and subscription agreements are on the “Merchant Agreements” tab.
We do not share your full credit card, debit card, or bank account number with sites or charitable organizations that accept Amazon Pay. The merchant only receives information that is required to complete and support your transaction. This information may include your name, email address, and shipping address.
It costs you nothing. Using Amazon Pay adds no fees to your transaction with sites and organizations accepting Amazon Pay. Your purchase incurs no transaction fee, no membership fee, no currency conversion fee, no foreign transaction fee, and no other fees. Your card issuer, however, may add a foreign transaction fee if your card was issued in a country different from the merchant’s as well as any other fees described in the terms and conditions for your card.
Sites offering Amazon Pay ship their own orders. If you think there may be a problem with delivering your order, contact the site or organization to address the problem. When you use Amazon Pay to check out, your purchases are covered by Amazon Pay's A-to-z Guarantee.
For a partial list of websites that accept Amazon Pay, see logos above. If there are websites you frequently buy from and would like them to add Amazon Pay to their site, you can send them an email or call them with your suggestion.
Amazon.com Gift Cards cannot be used as a payment method to place an order using Amazon Pay. Amazon.com Gift Cards can only be used to purchase eligible goods and services on Amazon.com and certain related sites as provided in the Amazon.com Gift Card Terms and Conditions.
