Worldpay enables Amazon Pay
Written by Hannah McGrath
Worldpay is teaming up with Amazon Pay, making it the first acquirer to enable the e-commerce giant’s payment services for merchants.
The agreement, which is launching initially in the US, will enable Worldpay merchants to accept payments through Amazon Pay using information already stored in a customer’s Amazon account to make purchases online.
Worldpay said opening up its Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to integration with Amazon Pay would provide fast and seamless online checkout experiences.
Asif Ramji, chief product and marketing officer at Worldpay, said the tie up would strengthen Worldpay’s digital commerce offering.
"Consumer adoption of digital payments is growing rapidly and merchants need to keep pace with demand,” he continued. “At Worldpay it’s our responsibility to make it quick and easy for our merchants to add new payment options, and enable their customers to pay in the way they want to."
