Amazon is probably the most recognised name in eCommerce, as well as providing servers and a range of services for developers. So why not take advantage of their Amazon Flexible Payments Services until your shop rivals them in size?
Amazon Flexible Payments Services benefits:
There are a number of benefits – as with many Jigoshop payment gateways, Amazon Flexible Payments Service (Amazon FPS) allows you to accept payments via the usual credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club, and JCB), but also accommodates bank transfers and allows customers to use their Amazon balance to pay for your products, meaning that you could take advantage of the widespread use of Amazon gift cards!
Even better for smaller businesses, once you have installed this extension, Amazon FPS is free to set-up and does not have any monthly fees. You only pay a percentage of payments you take, and you get all the benefits of Amazon’s experience in tackling eCommerce fraud, including chargeback controls and risk management processes to reduce bad debt.
Example fees for transactions over $10 are:
- 1.5% + $0.01 for Amazon Payments balance transfers.
- 2.0% + $0.05 for bank account debits.
- 2.9% + $0.30 for credit card for transactions above $10 and 5%+$0.05 for credit card for transactions below $10.
Please note that Amazon FPS is currently set up for U.S consumers, and the above fees are for U.S customers only. Non-US customers can make payments via credit card for an additional charge of 1% of the transaction amounts, but cannot use their Amazon balance or bank accounts. For more details on the Amazon FPS service and the fees for all levels of transactions, please do check out the Amazon Flexible Payments Services information on the Amazon site. There’s a very useful FAQs section worth checking out.
