Easy and Convenient
Checkout by Amazon makes it easy for Amazon customers to shop on your site using the delivery and payment information stored in their Amazon account. Sven Schoderböck, head of marketing at Thomann, one of Europe’s largest online stores for musical equipment, says, “Our customers can enjoy the trusted and convenient Amazon payment solution right on our site. Customers can simply choose the delivery addresses and bank information from their Amazon account and Thomann will handle the rest. It is actually as easy as it sounds. Plus, Checkout by Amazon is flexible and easy to integrate into our existing payment infrastructure.”
Trusted and Secure
Customers can transact directly on your website without sharing their payment information. In addition, customers will feel more confident making purchases knowing that they have the same protection under the Amazon A-to-Z Guarantee as they have when they shop on Amazon.
“We have offered Checkout by Amazon since June 2011. This option is an attractive alternative for buyers, and one in which they place a great deal of trust. Thanks to the large number of customers who have registered with Amazon, we are also able to acquire new customers. Advantages we have noticed compared to some other solutions include better control, fewer customers giving up during the payment process and easy integration,” says Ralf Schwalbe, Managing Director at www.hardwareversand.de, an electronics and hardware retailer.
“Checkout by Amazon allows us to achieve increased customer satisfaction levels as a result of the speed and security offered. In addition we can offer our customers a larger choice of payment solutions,” says Tim Leichter, director of business development at posterXXL.
