Welcome to eTail West from Amazon Payments

Amazon Payments is excited to be at eTail West this year as the official blog sponsor!  Let us introduce ourselves… Amazon Payments provides the simple way for customers, sellers and developers to pay and get paid online and through mobile devices.  Our service for retailers is Checkout by Amazon, a complete e-commerce checkout and payment solution enabling tens of millions of Amazon customers to buy on your website using the shipping addresses and payment information stored in their Amazon.com accounts.

Experience Checkout by Amazon– treat yourself to something from Buy.com, Patagonia, DKNY, Car Toys, J & R Music and Computer World, or one of the many other sites accepting Amazon Payments.  Bookmark our Deals page and check back often for exclusive offers, and be sure to follow us on Twitter.

We created Checkout by Amazon to make it easy and convenient for Amazon.com account holders to buy across the web – and to help retailers gain new customers and increase conversion.  So, how are we doing?  Here’s what two retailers offering Checkout by Amazon have to say:


“We are very happy with the results we’ve been seeing through Checkout by Amazon on Patagonia.com. We were blown away that this payment method immediately accounted for over 15% of our checkouts. Clearly, it is an option that many of our customers appreciate.”

– Ben Stefanski, Director of Catalog & Online Sales, Patagonia


“Geeks.com is very excited to offer Checkout by Amazon. We know our customers need choices when making payments and Amazon Payments gives them peace of mind that their information is secure. Within a few weeks of launch, Checkout by Amazon accounted for over 10% of transactions on our site – over 90% of these were orders from new customers.

– Glenn Kricheldorf, Channel Manager, Geeks.com

We hope you enjoy the free Internet access at the Cyber Café Unit, located in the foyer immediately outside the exhibit hall, sponsored by Amazon Payments. It’s there (with a full-sized keyboard!) for you to share your impressions and ideas online between sessions. We look forward to taking part in the conversation!
