Amazon Payments goes global
Amazon has launched a new global program designed to allow merchants worldwide to offer Amazon Payments to their customers.
The Amazon Payments Partner Program offers tools and services to help retail partners grow their merchant business by offering easy integration with Amazon Payments.
The program includes solution pre-integration and best practices to help ensure that merchants receive the most effective solutions. Merchants will be eligible to receive benefits and services from the program such as knowledge-sharing and ‘white glove integration services’. The program is free to participate in and available by invitation in the US, Germany, the UK and Japan.
Patrick Gauthier, VP, Amazon Payments, said the company is working across geographies and industries to help merchants adopt its system.
Members of the Amazon Payments Partner Program are eligible to receive account management, planning support, technical resources and training, a partner directory listing, partner designation with exclusive logos, and some partners may also be eligible for co-marketing activities.
“The convenience and trust that Amazon Payments provides customers already attracts lots of our merchants. We are honored to participate in the Amazon Payments Partner Program,” said Yuko Hoshino, President of Future Shop.
“Together, we will support the growth of our merchant business and contribute to the revitalisation of the eCommerce industry in Japan by combining the capabilities of FutureShop2 with the convenience of Amazon Payments.”
“Amazon Payments extends the trusted and familiar experience of Amazon to our merchants across Europe and the US,” said Corinne Lejbowicz, CEO PrestaShop SA.
“Our merchants want to offer their customers a payment solution that is trusted, easy and familiar,” added Brennan Loh, director of business development at Shopify.
