Registering with Login and Pay with Amazon for Magento

When you set up Login and Pay with Amazon, your customers can log in with their Amazon credentials, and use any payment methods or contact information they have stored in their Amazon account in order to make purchases on your site. You can start the registration and configuration process for Login and Pay with Amazon from the Magento administrative pages.

To register, follow the instructions in the applicable section below:

Configuring Login and Pay with Amazon for Magento

  1. From the Checkout Page Type field, choose one of three layout options for your page:
    • Magento Core OnePage Checkout — Select this option if you are using the standard accordion-style checkout that ships with Magento. The extension integrates seamlessly, using your existing CSS, but replaces the shipping info, billing info, and payments panes with the Amazon address book widget and wallet widget integrated into the layout.

    • Amazon Standalone Checkout — Select this option if you are using a non-standard checkout or one of the checkout extensions for Magento such as onestepcheckout. This will create a dedicated /amazonpayments checkout page in the body section of checkout (retaining your site's header, footer, and styles). This page can be themed as needed. When a customer chooses to Pay with Amazon, they are taken to this Amazon checkout page, where they can see their Amazon address book, wallet, and the order summary.

    • Amazon Standalone Checkout in a Modal Window — Select this option to provide the same customer experience as above, but with the checkout page in a modal overlay window, instead of a standalone page.
  2. From the Payment Action drop-down list, choose from two options:
    • Authorize & Capture — Select this option to collect the payment immediately upon receipt of the order.
    • Authorize Only — Select this option if you want to authorize the payment only when the order is received. This is a useful for custom orders or other orders that might take a long time to fulfill, because you might want to wait to complete the payment until the order is complete.
  3. You can choose to run Amazon Payments in Sandbox Mode by selecting Yes from this drop-down. Sandbox mode allows you to test the extension without having to worry about any live transactions.

  4. You can choose to run Amazon Payments in Debug Mode by selecting Yes from the AUTHORIZATION SANDBOX SIMULATION drop-down. Debug mode does a couple of things. It logs any API errors in your Magento log, so you can review them later. It also creates an Authorization Sandbox Simulation box (see image) to your checkout screen. This allows you to run additional tests on the extension.


    Note: For more details on how to run simulations, see Testing Your Integration in the Sandbox Environment in the Login and Pay with Amazon Integration Guide.
  5. When you have completed every field, click the Save Config button at the top of the screen. The extension should be ready to go.
    Note: Because the extension creates a Magento account for users when they use their Login with Amazon credentials, the automatic new account email will be sent, as usual. If you do not want to confuse your customers by sending multiple emails, you may want to edit or disable that email from the System > Transactional Emails menu.
