Amazon Payments and Ecommerce Templates

Amazon payments

Amazon Payments (Login and Pay with Amazon) was integrated into Ecommerce Templates shopping cart software in Version 6.5.3. It allows your customers to use their current Amazon account to purchase goods from your store. The customer would check out as normal and choose Amazon Payments as their payment method on the shipping and billing page. They would then be presented with a widget that contains their Amazon account address and card details to choose from. If successful the customer will continue on the store to choose their shipping preferences and then onto the confirmation page.

Setting up your Ecommerce Template with Amazon Payments

Once you have created your account, choose Edit Payment Providers in the store admin settings and click modify for Amazon Pay.

Amazon Payments

For the Transaction Type you will normally want to set this to Authorize Capture. This corresponds to Amazon's "Settle payments immediately" and means that the credit card will be charged at the time of purchase

For testing purposes (using the Amazon sandbox), you can put Amazon Payments into demo mode but remember to uncheck that box before going live with the store.


For testing purposes you will need to use a different account from your seller account. This will either mean asking a colleague to try the checkout for you or setting up a new account using a different email address.
