I am confused....
« on: April 02, 2013, 04:12:11 PM »
As usual, I am confused. I received a notice "Hi Seller,
Checkout by Amazon gives millions of valuable customers a convenient and trusted way to pay on your website." It continues on....

I am interpreting this that I can allow buyers to pay by Amazon on my eCrater site and when I get my website on their as well. I can't see where there is any cost by doing this and they pointed out many advantages. What have all of you experienced with this before? Appreciate your help.

Checkout by Amazon = Amazon Payments
It's a payment processor i.e., Paypal, Google Wallet.
I'm not sure whether eCrater allows Checkout by Amazon.

When you have your own website or Amazon's Webstore (which you can use easily combine your Amazon selling account, FBA and your own website seamlessly) there is a charge for accepting payments, just as there is a charge for accepting payments with Paypal and Google Wallet.

Alot of peeps might already have their Amazon account set-up and it's easy peazy to just use their existing Amazon payment setup to buy from your, there's the trust issue.

Even though I would think that there aren't many trust issues with Paypal or Google Wallet any longer..these have been in use so long that everyone is familiar with them.

I know that Ecrater is working on adding more pay options
I haven't seen anything or know what options those are
I was under the impression that it was your own personal merchant account
But I could be wrong

Where are you getting this info that says you can use it with Ecrater? 
sock monkeys at and of course everything at
