Buyer Help > Getting started with Amazon Pay

Creating and Accessing your Amazon Pay Account

If you have an Amazon account, you can already shop on third party websites/apps that accept Amazon Pay. In case you don’t have an Amazon account, you can open it the first time that you make a payment through Amazon Pay, after you have accept our User Agreement.

To activate your Amazon Pay Account, perform the following steps:

  1. Place an order with any merchant that accepts Amazon Pay. (See a list of Featured merchants).
  2. Use your Amazon credentials (your e-mail address and Amazon password) when you are asked to sign in and accept our User Agreement.
  3. Select a payment method from your Amazon account to complete the payment and complete the checkout process. Your Amazon Pay Account will be automatically activated once you make your first payment.
