Using your Amazon Payments account
Amazon Payments is a service that lets you use the payment methods already associated with your Amazon.com account to make payments for goods or services on third-party websites.
When you see the Pay with Amazon button on a third-party website, you can use the Amazon Payments service to:
- Log in with your Amazon.com account.
- Accept the Customer Agreement when prompted.
- Complete your purchase.
Expect this when using Amazon Payments
- To make a payment, you can use any credit or debit card on file in your Amazon.com account, including your Amazon.com Store Card.
- After your purchase, expect to receive an email from Amazon Payments 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 Payments
- When making a payment, you cannot use an Amazon.com Gift Card for purchases directly with third-party merchants. A third-party website or seller that suggests payment using an Amazon.com Gift Card is not a legitimate Amazon Payments merchant.
- You will never receive an invoice from Amazon Payments asking for payment using Amazon.com Gift Cards.
Be wary of these common internet scams
- Requests for Amazon.com 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
