WooCommerce Amazon Pay


What is Amazon Pay? An end-to-end payment solution that gives hundreds of millions of active Amazon customers[1] a familiar, fast, and secure way to complete their purchase through your online store. Shoppers can use the address and payment information already stored in their Amazon account to check out – avoiding account creation or the need to re-enter their billing and shipping information. The performance is continually optimized by technology, learnings, and best practices from Amazon.

With 91% of Amazon Pay customers saying they would use Amazon Pay again and hundreds of millions of active Amazon customers already enabled for Amazon Pay, it can make it easier for you to deliver an improved customer experience online[2].

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “WooCommerce Amazon Pay” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favorite FTP application. The
WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

Works well, but should be an actual payment method on the checkout page instead of a button/notice on the cart and a notice on the checkout page, looks out of place which is why I rate a 4 star and not 5. It is a payment method, so why is it not included in the payment methods on the checkout page? Does not make much sense. With that said, it does work well!
