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:
- Log in with your Amazon account.
- Accept the User Agreement on first use when prompted.
- Complete your purchase.
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.
- 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.
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 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
