    Login and pay with Amazon

    Amazon has just announced a PayPal competitor. How many of you will investigate and implement this option?

    We will certainly investigate and if the costs are close to PayPal's then we will certainly think about adding this as an option.

    We were hoping to use Amazon as a payment gateway option for clients, but the last time we checked with them they would not process online services, only physical products!

    Do you know if this service is any different?

    Here is more info about it:

    http://login.amazon.com/

    Good play by them, esp. if they do online service processing, I've seen physical product owners being weary of doing payments with them because they don't want to send customers to Amazon in case they will buy something there instead of on their website.

    PayPal is the most popular payment gateway AFAIK, so you should not leave it.

    Well if they don't keep up with the game people are gonna switch, and specially being a middle man and doing nothing really scares away the businesses.

    AFAIK Amazon is very aggressive and will surely slow them down.

    Lets see

    Paypal sometimes falls short but it still a reasonable worldwide payment gateway.

    It is only the most popular because there is no meaningful competition.

    yes it is, I love selling stuff on ebay, getting screwed for 10% of the sale value, then being virtually forced to use paypal and getting screwed for another 3.5%

    totally reasonable for a monopoly

    PayPal has done way more than 'keep up with the game' here.
    Paypal has brought in their debit card solutions, something I doubt we'll ever see from Amazon
    Paypal has brought in local payments
    paypal has brought in 'Paypal Here', a card reader for providers that aren't strictly online

    They can't really do much more to "keep up with the game", honestly

    You're getting charged for two separate services, not one.

    Paypal/Ebay are none of those. You're welcome to go to any other auction or payment site out there. Have fun

    Yeah all thats good for customers, but as far as merchants goes. I am not going to pay to get screwed over.

    You run more of a risk of getting screwed over by your local bank account than you do with PayPal. I've been using them since '99, before it was 'cool' to use 'em, and have yet to be screwed over on a single transaction.

    I hope with amazon we could see better fraud detection and reduced cases of fraudulent charge backs.
