WooCommerce extension updates & releases

Your choices for easy payment processing just increased by one. SkyVerge has just released the WooCommerce Amazon Simple Pay payment gateway extension! While this extension was in the WooCommerce Extension store until about 5 months ago, it was pulled by another developer, so we’ve redesigned it from the ground up to give you the quality and security that we ensure in all of our products.

Amazon Simple Pay will allow you to process payments on your WooCommerce store using credit cards AND your customers’ Amazon balance. You gain the trust that comes from associating with the #1 online retailer, and your customers get the ease of selecting their payment method and checking out with a familiar face (so to speak).

What are the benefits to using Simple Pay?

Aside from super easy payment processing, Amazon provides a straight-forward pricing structure for all of their payment gateways (maybe you’re familiar with this if you’ve seen or used our WooCommerce Amazon FPS Payment Gateway). You’ll only pay for the transactions that you process — no monthly fees or contracts. With transaction fees of 2.9% + $0.30, Amazon Simple Pay is very competitive with major payment processors.

Finally, with Amazon Simple Pay or Amazon FPS, you avoid all PCI security requirements, which means you don’t need an SSL certificate for your store. Customers are redirected to Amazon to make payments during your checkout process, so all security requirements are handled by the same secure servers that Amazon uses to process their payments.

In short, we designed Amazon Simple Pay to offer you even more easy, secure payment processing choices for your WooCommerce store!
