Merchant help > Amazon Pay registration

Register to get the Amazon Pay button on your site or app.

Note Buyers don’t need to register. During checkout, they use their existing Amazon account credentials.

Seller Central configuration

After you've completed registration with Amazon Pay, go through the following checklist step by step to complete Seller Central configuration to use the full potential of Amazon Pay.

Provide your bank account and credit card information

  • To receive disbursements of amounts collected from your customers, assign a deposit method to your Amazon Payments merchant account. Amazon Pay will disburse amounts collected from your customers to your deposit method at fixed intervals.
  • Add a charge method. The charge method you enter can be used by Amazon Pay to cover fees you owe.

Provide required information for account verification

  • Upload all required documents that Amazon Payments requests from you to verify your account.
    Note If you provide accurate information, and depending on your business type and information, verification can take up to 7 business days. If Amazon Payments needs more information, we will contact you by email or within your Amazon Payments Seller Central account. In this case, verification can take longer. Check your emails regularly.

Add your website URLs to your Store ID configuration

  • To let your customers use the Amazon Pay button on your website, add all your relevant URLs (Javascript Origins, Privacy Policy URLs, Return URLs) to your Store ID configuration in Seller Central.

URLs you add will be reviewed before you can activate Amazon Pay on the corresponding website. Make sure your website is available, follows the Acceptable Use Policy, and contains details about your business legal entity and address.

URL verification can take up to 48 hours. Only activate Amazon Pay on your website after Amazon Pay has verified your URLs. For updates regarding the review status of the URLs you added, check your performance notifications in Seller Central.

In case one of your URLs is rejected, to appeal the decision of a review, reply to the email you received directly using your Amazon Payments merchant account registered email address.

Note You can use your Amazon Payments merchant account only for websites under the same legal entity. Register a new Amazon Payments merchant account if you have website URLs under a different legal entity.

Configure Amazon Pay for your online store

  • To have your store receive instant processing notifications (IPN), add your merchant URL to instant notification settings. You usually find the required URL in your plugin configuration. If you use a custom integration, your technician will be able to provide the required URL. If you enter 2 URLs, the notifications will be sent to both of them. Note that the IPN URLs must be set for both, the Production and Sandbox environment.
  • Upload your company logo that will show during checkout with Amazon Pay. To upload your logo, select your online store in the App or store name drop-down, and then click Edit.
  • Upload a banner image that will show in in the sign-in pop-up if you are using Amazon Pay without Sign-in with Amazon functionality.
  • Add your customer service details to your merchant information. Your contact information will show in Amazon Pay order and transaction confirmation emails your buyers receive.
  • Make sure your account notification settings are up to date and that you can access the corresponding email inboxes to receive notifications about necessary changes and required actions.

Create a test buyer account in sandbox

The Amazon Pay sandbox environment in Seller Central allows you to create test buyer accounts that you can use to simulate payment scenarios without using real money for the simulated transactions.

To create a test account, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to Seller Central with your Amazon Payments merchant account, and then select Amazon Pay (Sandbox View) from the dropdown menu on top of the page.
  2. Click on the Menu ☰, and then click Integration.
  3. Select Test Accounts from the menu, and then click Create a new test account.
  4. Enter a name and email address and set a password for each account you create.
    Note To receive emails related to your test orders, use an email address to which you have access. Don't use the email address and password that you already use for an Amazon account.
  5. Select one or more pre-set test delivery addresses for your test orders.
    Note After the account is set up, you can also add a new address.
  6. Click Create Account.
