Amazon Rolls Out Payment Service to Web Sites

The New York Times, CNET

Amazon is extending its checkout payment system to fellow e-tailers a la Google Checkout, while launching another payment service similar to PayPal.Checkout by Amazon enables e-commerce sites to offer Amazon's familiar checkout solution, tapping into the information already stored so their customers don't have to key in their personal information. E-tailers also gain access to Amazon's one-click ordering system and tools to easily calculate sales tax and shipping costs, and their customers can track the shipment of their purchases. Service pricing, detailed here, is based on a percentage of the sale plus a flat-fee per transaction.

For Web sites desiring a more barebones solution, Amazon Simple Pay allows customers to use their Amazon account information to pay for purchases. Like PayPal, it can be a standalone solution or used in addition to a site's existing payment system. Pricing is identical to Checkout by Amazon.The New York Times, CNET
