Amazon Payments launches new mobile payment option

Allows developers and merchants to process payments from mobile devices

By CBR Staff Writer

Amazon Payments, an Amazon.com company, has launched Amazon Mobile Payments Service (Amazon MPS), allowing developers, merchants and distributors of mobile applications to process payments from mobile devices and extend Amazon’s 1-Click checkout experience to their customers.

After signing in from an Amazon MPS enabled device or mobile application, customers are automatically able to make future purchases from their mobile devices using 1-Click functionality. Through a set of API’s and an mobile browser experience, developers and merchants can extend single or multi-use payment options to their customers, the company claimed.

Amazon added that its new mobile payment service is built on Amazon Payments infrastructure.

Howard Gefen, director of Amazon Mobile Payments, said: “We’re pleased to make it easier for our Amazon Payments developers and merchants to extend mobile payment options and the ease of 1-Click checkout to their customers.

Amazon customers can now also make purchases on third party sites without needing to set up separate payment accounts—they simply use the payment information in their existing Amazon accounts.”

The company said that developers and merchants who already offer Amazon Payments on their website can add the new mobile payment option for their customers without any additional backend technology development.
