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.

To donate with Alexa, you must have voice purchasing enabled in your Alexa voice purchasing settings and a valid default payment method in your Amazon account 1-Click Preferences.

Amazon Pay explained


Amazon Pay is a service offered to Amazon customers, and you are enabled to use it wherever you see it — whether that is clicking the Amazon Pay button when checking out on your favorite online stores, managing your payment methods in your account on Amazon.com or using Amazon Pay on Alexa. There are no additional sign-ups or sign-ins. Your transactions are safe and secure, and everything can be tracked in your Amazon account.

If you have an Amazon account, you are ready to start using Amazon Pay wherever you see the Amazon Pay button. No additional registration is necessary, which means you don’t need to create a new account or remember old passwords. Amazon Pay simply uses the information and payment methods stored in your Amazon account. That also includes your address book, so you’ll always have Grandmom’s address handy no matter where you shop.

Amazon Pay is the way to check out quickly and securely online, and your eligible purchases of physical goods are protected by our A-to-z Guarantee. Breeze through checkout using the information already stored in your Amazon account, or use Alexa and pay by voice and check on order status. In addition, Amazon Pay Deals brings you featured offers especially for Amazon Pay customers. You can visit our Deals page to discover the latest offers, and subscribe to our newsletter to get Amazon Pay Deals delivered directly to your inbox once a month.

Go to pay.amazon.com and sign in as a “shopper” using your Amazon username and password. One-time purchases are shown on the “Activity” tab, and subscription agreements are on the “Merchant agreements” tab. You can also view your transactions on Amazon.com. If you are on a desktop, your Amazon Pay transactions can be found under “Amazon Orders” within the Amazon Pay tab or in “Your Account” under “Transactions”. If you are in the Amazon app, all transactions are listed together under “Your Orders” or in “Your Account”.

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 nothing. Using Amazon Pay does not add fees to your purchases on sites and organizations accepting Amazon Pay. We do not add transaction fees, membership fees, currency conversion fees, foreign transaction fees, or any other fees. Your card issuer, however, may add a foreign transaction fee if your card was issued in a country different from the site on which you are shopping, as well as any other fees described in the terms and conditions for your card.

Sites offering Amazon Pay ship their own orders to you. Also, you can enable Alexa Delivery Notifications through participating merchants to get package tracking alerts. If you think there may be a problem with 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 the For Shoppers section of our website. Is the Amazon Pay button not showing as a payment option in your favorite online stores? Let’s make it happen! You can simply email the store or call them with your suggestion to start enjoying the freedom of a checkout experience you know and trust.

At this time, 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.

Yes, it is all part of Amazon Pay. As an Amazon account holder, you can check out at tens of thousands of online stores around the world other than Amazon.com using the payment information stored in your Amazon account. The place where you manage those payment methods in your Amazon account is also Amazon Pay. Additionally, you can also use Amazon Pay on Alexa.

Amazon Pay accepts credit and debit cards. You can learn more about accepted payment methods here.
