Using Amazon Pay
Amazon Pay is a service that lets you use the payment methods already associated with your Amazon account to make payments for goods or services on third-party websites.
When you see the Amazon Pay button on a third-party website or in an app, you can use the Amazon Pay service to:
- Sign in using your Amazon account credentials.
- Accept the User Agreement on first use when prompted.
- Complete your purchase.
Tip: Make sure you have updated your browser's settings to allow third-party cookies. Your browser might refer to these as a privacy setting, preference, or option.
If you have an Amazon account, you can already shop on non-Amazon websites and in apps that accept Amazon Pay. There is no separate registration process, and purchasing is easy:
- Look for the Amazon Pay button on a merchant website or in an app. (See a list of Featured merchants.)
- Use your Amazon credentials (your email address and Amazon password) when you are asked to sign in and accept our User Agreement.
- Choose a payment method from your Amazon account to complete the payment and easily complete the checkout process.
Expect this when using Amazon Pay
- To make a payment, you can use any credit or debit card on file in your Amazon account, although you might be limited to Visa and Mastercard in some circumstances.
- After your purchase, expect to receive an email from Amazon Pay notifying you that the payment has been authorized and a second email confirming the purchase.
- The merchant will send you an invoice in email.
Don't expect this when using Amazon Pay
- When making a payment, you cannot use an Amazon.co.uk Gift Card for purchases directly with third-party merchants. A third-party website or seller that suggests payment using an Amazon.co.uk Gift Card is not a legitimate Amazon Pay merchant.
- You will never receive an invoice from Amazon Pay asking for payment using Amazon.co.uk Gift Cards.
- No matter the currency of your transaction, Amazon Pay never adds a foreign transaction fee, although your card issuer might.
Be wary of these common internet scams
- Requests for Amazon.co.uk Gift Card claim codes
- Payments that are made off the merchant site
- Payments made by bank transfer
- Payments to guarantee the transaction
- Payments to receive a large amount of money
- Payments to guarantee a credit card or loan
- Offers that you are not sure are honest
- Payments to someone whose identity you can't confirm
