Amazon Payments a Hit with Buy.com Shoppers

We’ll open today’s post with comments shared by retailer Buy.com.  Buy.com is engaged in the Selling on Amazon Program, and accepts Checkout by Amazon.

“Buy.com has always been committed to delivering an innovative online shopping Buy.comexperience. We provide real-time comparison shopping, streaming product videos through BuyTV, and offer free shipping on millions of products.  We’ve also been among the first to offer certain alternative payment methods – which have been growing in popularity because they can save time and make shopping more convenient.

“We began offering Checkout by Amazon and the Amazon PayPhrase option because they reduce transaction times for Amazon account holders on Buy.com.  In just the past few months, it has become a clear hit with Amazon shoppers. Checkout by Amazon is now one of the top alternative payment methods on our site, and hundreds of thousands of orders on Buy.com have been placed using Amazon Payments. Our thousands of Buy.com Marketplace sellers have also responded positively to the addition of these payment options.”
