Key features and services

On this page, we outline the key features and services offered by Amazon Payment Services. Follow the included links to the relevant API documentation pages to read more about the topics that matter to your business.

Accepting payments

We offer you several options when it comes to accepting payments on your website, or in your app. Your choice of integration route will depend on the complexity of your payment processing requirements, and on the the development resources available to you.

Businesses with straightforward payment processing needs should consider our easy-to-implement standard integration route for efficient payments that deliver a great customer experience. Alternatively, you can opt for custom merchant page integration if you have unique requirements. Or, choose redirection for minimal coding.

No developer resources? Simply use our straightforward shopping cart plugins for popular platforms including Magento, Shopify and WooCommerce to name just a few. We also offer manual order processing for offline transactions.

Get ready for mobile payments using our mobile SDKs for in-app payments in both Android and iOS. Or, if your business has sufficient development resources, consider custom-building your own in-app payment processing using the customer merchant integration route. No app? Simply use our tools to fine-tune your website for a mobile-friendly experience.

Complex payment processing

You can accommodate more complex payment processing requirements thanks to our recurring payments API. We also offer the capability to batch-process payment commands and the ability to bulk-send invoices via an email which includes a payment link.

Companies that require a flexible, technology-driven payments partner to accommodate unique technical requirements can rely on us for a range of payment solutions that can deliver discrete functionality anywhere along the payments workflow.

Localization and local payment methods

Amazon Payment Services has agreements in place with several local payment networks. As a result, you can offer your customers the ability to pay using a range of popular local payment methods -- from debit cards right through to installment agreements.

Your customers can also enjoy a localized shopping experience. For example, you can publish prices in the currency your customer is familiar with thanks to our live currency conversion service. We also make it easy to communicate in a language that your customer understands: you can configure the language used on the payment form, and the language used to communicate transaction results.

Security, anti-fraud, and risk management measures

Keep payment processing safe and secure for your customers, and for your business, thanks to Amazon Payment Services' integrated and customizable security features. Choose from our standard anti-fraud service, or upgrade your fraud protection.

Customers that pay with a card that is enrolled in 3D Secure can effortlessly pay as they normally would. You can also customize the 3D Secure experience to ensure that your customers experience minimum friction when checking out. You can even use an external 3D Secure partner if you prefer to do so.

Amazon Payment Services also accommodates unique security requirements. For example, PCI-compliant merchants can directly tap our powerful payment processing capabilities via the trusted channel.

Back office management

Monitor your incoming payments in real time using our extensive set of back office tools, and query individual transactions to see exactly what happened when a transaction was processed. You can also customize your notifications settings to match your requirements.

We also offer direct access to your payment data via our API which enables you to develop a custom application that monitors and mines payment processing data, delivering the unique insights you require.
