Payments platform Adyen has added Amazon Pay as a payment method to provide its merchants’ shoppers with a fast and secure way to pay online.
Amazon Pay aims to help Adyen’s merchants remove friction from the checkout experience by allowing customers to use the information already stored in their Amazon account. This means customers will not have to create an account, re-enter credit or debit card information, or type in their billing and shipping address.
Patrick Gauthier, VP of Amazon Pay, said: “We are excited about the opportunity to offer Amazon Pay’s ease-of-use to Adyen’s partners and their shoppers. Our aim is to provide as many Amazon customers as possible with a secure and smooth shopping experience. Our agreement with Adyen supports that goal perfectly.”
Adyen’s merchants can also access innovation in voice commerce through delivery notifications via Amazon Alexa. The feature allows Adyen merchants to notify customers when their Amazon Pay order is on its way or has arrived.
Kamran Zaki, COO of Adyen, said: “Our promise of continuous innovation to our merchants is highly important to us. So it excites me that we have expanded our payment method offering with Amazon Pay. Through Amazon Pay, our merchants are able to provide a large group of shoppers with a familiar payment flow – and thus to offer a great shopping experience.”
Adding to this, Edgar Verschuur, Head of Global Acquiring of Adyen, said: “Based on merchant demand, we’ve been working with Amazon to make it easier for our merchants to accept Amazon Pay. We aim to offer as many popular payment methods, including digital wallets, to our merchants as possible. This partnership will not only offer more options for our merchants, it will help them convert more customers and drive more sales.”
Adyen will support Amazon Pay in countries including the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Italy and Spain.
