Amazon extends its 1-Click check out to mobile devices

Ecommerce giant has launched a new service that lets its tens of millions of customers easily make mobile payments.

The Amazon Mobile Payments Service provides developers, merchants and distributors of mobile applications an easy way to process payments from mobile devices and extend Amazon’s 1-Click checkout experience to their customers.

Amazon customers can now also make purchases on third party sites without needing to set up separate payment accounts – they simply use the payment information in their existing Amazon accounts.

Amazon Mobile Payments Service provides developers and merchants with a payment option for their customers that is as easy and familiar as the checkout experience on – including the convenience of Amazon’s 1-Click checkout.

After signing in from an Amazon MPS enabled device or mobile application, customers are automatically able to make future purchases from their mobile devices using 1-Click functionality.

Through a simple set of API’s and an optimized mobile browser experience, developers and merchants can easily extend single or multi-use payment options to their customers.

Developers and merchants who already offer Amazon Payments on their Web site can easily add the new mobile payment option for their customers without any additional backend technology development.

The Amazon Mobile Payments Service optimizes the check out experience for mobile devices and provides tens of millions of customers the peace of mind and convenience of shopping on mobile third party sites using information from their account.
