I am so happy to report that Amazon is now offering an in-app Pay What You Can option on their site. This is a huge step forward in enabling people to make purchases with their smartphones, tablets, or computers. It’s the first time a digital payment system has been integrated into the Amazon ecosystem with any sort of legitimacy. We’ve seen it several times before, and it’s always been considered a success.
Amazon’s service and app is actually fairly straightforward. You’ll be able to pay by simply tapping the “Pay Now” button on your device. You’ll have to enter your details in the app, and after that, you can pay. There’s no need to enter any credit card details or remember your PIN, just sign into your Amazon account and pay.
Amazon has been slowly rolling this out slowly, but I think its important to note that this is only happening for Amazon and not at all other retailers. In other words, you can pay at amazon.com but not at walmart.com. It is a bit confusing so I’ll mention that Walmart now uses Apple Pay.

Amazon Payments is currently in beta and its only an available to Amazon merchants, but the service is very similar to Google Wallet.
WalMart has not yet launched their own service.
Google Wallet, for instance, lets you make payments using a Google account. And although the service has not yet made its debut on Walmart’s site, you can use it at walmart.com if you’ve visited the store recently. Just look for the option to pay with Apple Pay, and you should be able to pay with your own Apple Pay balance.
Apple Pay is available in Canada, so you can pay with it at your local convenience store. It’s also available in the U.S. and in a handful of other countries, but it’s currently only available in Canada. We’d love to hear from Amazon merchants who may be interested in offering it to their customers. (And yes, we’ve already told you about the WalMart version of the service. It’s more like a store-based version.
Yes, we can pay with the same Apple Pay card that we use at Walmart.com. But it’s available on Amazon’s website, and we’re sure you have a similar account with Amazon as well.
Yes, I know that Amazon.com doesn’t sell iPhones or iPads, but its the same deal as the Walmart version. The only difference is that you need to be an Amazon Prime member to make the purchase.
