This is a big deal – Amazon Pay has shown to increase conversion significantly (especially on mobile) by saving customers from tediously entering all of their personal and payment information when checking out. The functionality is not dissimilar to that of the PayPal integration. The user chooses Amazon Pay, logs into their Amazon account and all their information is auto-magically pulled into Magento.adding Amazon Pay to your Magento solution is a no-brainer
With such deep market penetration – in excess of 350 million users worldwide, adding Amazon Pay to your Magento solution is a no-brainer. Be sure to highlight the fact you accept Amazon pay on your site to maximize the benefit.

Payment breakdowns, APR and so on are calculated instantly and presented in a user-friendly manner so the customer can make an informed decision.Klarna take 100% of the fraud risk.
