I have used Google Pay, Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, and other similar products in both my personal and business life. All of these products offer similar features and are useful to varying degrees. I think the usefulness of each product is predicated on the exact situation. Amazon …
Chose Amazon Pay
We trust Amazon Web Services more than Apple at this stage. AWS has more experience in cyber security and working with financial institutions. We also wanted a product that integrates across iOS and Android platforms, and provides equal ease of use regardless of what device …

I find it's extremely easy to use Amazon Pay, at least as a consumer. If you have an active Amazon account, and if you have Prime, your features (free shipping) are already connected and ready to use. The advantages are that you don't have to enter new payment info into another new e-commerce site and your Amazon Prime shipping advantages are already built into your options. At least, this has been the case for me the few times I've used it so far - on a couple of different online stores. I also had to cancel an item and the reimbursement went through quickly and easily as well.

I use it not only at stores in person but also online. It's so easy to use. I've been a victim of identity theft before and I just feel safer using it online than entering my individual credit card info every time. Plus I get cashback on purchases!

Pros
Amazon AWS
  • The experience of using Amazon Pay goes really well if you have paired your Amazon account with an Alexa-enabled device.
  • You don't have to take out your credit card in public and you can simply complete every purchase using Amazon Pay UPI.
  • Amazon Pay later is one of my favorite features that I use to make any purchase on the Amazon website. It allows me to make payments even when I am short on the pocket. And the good part is that you don't have to pay any interest for this pay later amount.
  • In case you have received a gift voucher from your company, you can add it to your account and it will reflect in your Amazon Pay balance.

  • The ability for other integrations to still have their restricting permissions to be used. As an example, I can't use Apple Pay and still choose when I want my delivery because it's not in Apple Pay's coding to allow outside restrictions.

Support Rating
Amazon AWS
Amazon Pay gets a rating of 9 because it does not drastically improve the business. That said, it allows us to offer another payment method for users who trust Amazon and will always or only checkout with Amazon Pay. The support team for Amazon Pay is top-notch and will help get all issues resolved.

The User Interface of Amazon Pay is far better than any other payment gateway. Moreover, I have very less payment stuck problems with Amazon pay, and even if any payment gets stuck the issue is resolved within 48 hours of the failed transaction. I like that Amazon Pay offers rewards for every payment done which is a very cool feature that other applications often provide its users.

Our choice to use Apple Pay was made because of the fast and easy access to funds, it is largely accepted by most vendors and it is a knowingly secure platform for transactions. Making it a trusted and effective resource for our company to utilize. We also found the setup to be more user-friendly.

Return on Investment
Amazon AWS
  • Amazon Pay instantly boosted our sales when I realized that customs prefer to use it over PayPal as just about everyone has an Amazon account and it makes it easier for them to just check out using Amazon Pay.
  • The processing fees while higher than the others we are using are the only downside to our return in using Amazon Pay.
  • Customers use their Amazon logins for their Amazon pay orders and it is as hassle-free as it gets.
