The next generation of checkout is now available in the UK, enabling online retailers in the UK to make it easy for millions of Amazon customers to shop without leaving their web site. With Checkout by Amazon, Amazon customers can checkout on another retailer’s website using their Amazon account credentials.
Checkout by Amazon offers a seamless checkout experience enabling customers to access their Amazon address book and payment methods directly on a retailer’s site, without leaving that site. This means fewer steps to checkout for millions of Amazon account holders and increased average order size and new customers for retailers.
“Checkout by Amazon enables our customers to select the delivery address and the default credit card they already have on file at Amazon right on our site. Checkout by Amazon is the only solution we’ve found that gives us the flexibility to integrate this kind of functionality directly. We believe the easier it is for customers to purchase, the more revenue we’ll see.”
