    This says: “With Amazon Payments, your customers can make purchases on your website using payment and shipping information stored in their Amazon account.” Does that mean whatever shipping level they have (such as Amazon Prime), your order has to abide by? Or do they pay the shipping fee that you have established in your Volusion store?

      Hi Jonathan,

      Great question! Amazon Prime is only available on select Amazon and, generally, must be shipped from Amazon.

      The customer will select and pay from the shipping methods available on the store and, with Amazon Payments, the addresses and payment info are saved to streamline the purchase process.

      Happy Selling!

    Another US only update… Do you remember you have UK merchants? I can’t remember one post recently that was relevant to us!

      Hi there,

      Thanks for reaching out! At this time, Amazon Payments is only available for US merchants, but we will keep you updated about the UK merchant availability. Currently, UK customers can place orders with Amazon Payments on Volusion stores that have this feature enabled.

    Hi: Although this could be a good thing, I do have an important question: My credit card processor deposits the funds from our sales into our bank account within 24 to 48 hrs. If a customer pays us through Payments by Amazon when would we see our money? I ask because one the many drawbacks to Amazon is the fact that they sit on your money for 2 weeks at a time. Is this the case here? Does Amazon get to use your money for a couple of weeks?

      Hi Mary Ann,

      Great question! I did a bit of research and it looks like Amazon Payments first settles your account 14 days after your first payment transaction completes. After the initial 14 day holding period, your account is settled daily. And it usually takes 3 to 5 business days from the time they settle your account and initiate an ACH transfer before the funds arrive in your account. I hope this helps!

      Happy Selling!
