Response and checkout language

You can select the language that Amazon Payment Services uses in its communications with your customers to meet their language preferences.

For example, you can customize payment processing interactions by setting your language choice for the standard and custom merchant page integration route, for redirection, and for our mobile SDKs. You can also customize the language used when generating invoices.

It's also possible to ensure that transaction response messages are sent in the language that your customer prefers.

Local payment methods

Though debit and credit cards issued on the major global networks are a standard and popular payment method, many other commonly used payment methods exist in countries around the world.

You can offer your customers the ability to pay using a local payment method such as a bank-linked debit card issued on a local payment network.

Amazon Payment Services has several agreements with local financial institutions covering local payment methods -- including both payment cards and installment financing.
