It’s time to look at installing Amazon Pay on WooCommerce.
Amazon is one of the top websites in the world that millions of customers are shopping with and have accounts. Therefore, Amazon Pay, I think, is a good option to test at least and see if anyone actually buys courses on jerrybanfield.com with Amazon Pay.
The setup process for this was maybe mildly challenging. Thus, I will show you exactly how to get Amazon Pay set up for WooCommerce.
First, it’s https://woocommerce.com/products/pay-with-amazon/, or you can just search for WooCommerce Amazon Pay.
Then, click on “Download now” to get the process starting.
Next, it says, “Add Amazon Pay to your cart.”
After you’ve done that, you will see a page, since it’s free, where you can add it to your site.
I clicked on “Add to site” and it went like this, “Installing extension” because I did this directly within jerrybanfield.com in the WooCommerce extension, where I started doing that.
This page just didn’t do anything and stayed there for about 10 or 15 minutes. I tried to download the plugin and install it manually and it didn’t work because a directory was already created. Long story short, they put it in, but didn’t close that window.
Thus, I go back over to WooCommerce over here, click on “Settings,” then go over to “Payments.”
Then, click on “Manage” under Amazon Pay or “Set up” under Amazon Pay.
That’s where you find it.
Go to WooCommerce, Settings, Payments, up here, then down to Amazon Pay, click on “Manage.”
This screen comes up next.
The first key thing to do is click on this “Configure/Register Now” button that’s in here.
Once you click on that, you’ll be taken over to the Amazon Pay, Merchant Registration page.
If you have multiple Amazon Pay accounts or merchant accounts, or seller accounts, make sure you choose the one you want to do this with for Amazon Pay.
You can sign out if you need to switch accounts on the top on “Settings.”
The first thing you do is pick what kind of business you have.
Then, you pick your business name and URL.
Then, you’ve got this tax interview.
Now mine gave me an error at this step because I already did the tax interview on my seller account, it was giving me an error.
Thus, what I did, I clicked on “Tax ID” after trying every other way to do it.
I clicked on “Tax ID” and it said, “Skip the interview,” and it allowed me to proceed directly to the next one where I put my credit card on file in case there’s any adjustment.
Then, there also was a screen that I forgot, whatever was on that is not a big deal, we just click through that.
The next thing is, “Share access keys with Woothemes.”
This is an awesome feature.
Literally you just hit, “Transfer access keys.”
It says, “Your keys have been successfully transferred.”
Then, you go back to the panel I was talking about before.
This is under WooCommerce/settings/payments.
Then, you go to Amazon Pay.
Click on “Manage” over there, and then you’ll find that all of your keys have been automatically added in.
Now, I blurred mine out for privacy obviously, but you’ll find that all your keys have been added in here when you finish the process.
Now, make sure you click on “Enable Amazon Pay” and log in with Amazon because that will allow people to actually use it.
There are some key things you might want to play with on the bottom of this page.
First is deciding what appearance you want the button to have.
The initial Amazon button looked ridiculous.
It was this little tiny thing.
That’s now the large button that’s beneath the PayPal button.
Thus, you will probably need to go change the size of the button. I switched mine to dark gray because on WooCommerce, the PayPal button is already gold.
I don’t want another gold button right next to it.
Thus, I chose dark gray for it. I like the button text with Amazon Pay.
That is the clearest.
You can see Amazon Pay, use your account. The other one was not as clear to me as to why you’d use it. I got that set up and that means we are done with this installation.
The one thing I don’t like about this or I’m wondering how great this is, when you actually go to check out, there’s a big Amazon Pay right above the purchase.
I’ve already got two other ones.
There’s a log in for other customers and there’s a coupon code there.
How many things do I need above the checkout page?
Now, there’s Amazon Pay there.
The nice thing is that if someone feels most comfortable using Amazon Pay, they can sign in, log in right there to start with.
Alternatively, there’s PayPal and credit cards down here, but why is Amazon Pay not down there?
I don’t know. Maybe they’ll move it, but it’s ridiculous up there, and I’m considering turning it off.
That said, I think it’s good to test Amazon Pay because I’ve bought things with Amazon before and if someone’s already got a credit card or a bank account or something saved with Amazon, then I’m interested to see how many people actually use Amazon Pay and if people don’t use it that much, I will turn it off.
However, this is allowing me the chance to have a test for it, so we’ll see what happens.
That’s how you set up Amazon Pay on your WooCommerce account.
I love you.
