Amazon expands its payments business

Amazon has launched the Amazon Payments Partner Program, a new service designed to enable ecommerce platform providers and developers to offer merchants Amazon Payments, which allows customers to log in and pay using their account with the online retail giant. “The program is free to participate in and available by invitation in the US, Germany, UK and Japan,” Amazon says.

    As a consumer, Amazon has earned my trust. I rank them with American Express and PayPal. I refer to use these proxies when purchasing on-line both for convenience and as protection against having my payment information stored and leaked.

    That said, we will continue to experience (card not present) fraud until on-line merchants stop accepting credit cards.
