Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon Pay

Amazon Pay is well suited for any type of e-commerce online payment processing. The fees are equivalent to Paypal and Square, which are higher than using a merchant account. There are no setup fees. The process to set up an account is a bit tedious but you can be assured of security with Amazon.

BlueSnap

Very well suited for a recurring subscription based business as well as anyone who is collecting payments for service businesses over the web. It's not great for template based e-commerce solutions. We use a different processing system for those channels.

Cons

  • Sign up process is a bit tedious and long, would love to see a simpler process.
  • Does not handle ACH transactions, though most processors don't...but it would be a nice feature from a leader in the industry.
  • Withdrawal times! Ugh, 5-7 days? There are other processors that are much faster...there's no reason Amazon can't be either.

  • Pricing for Amex transactions can be better.
  • Client on boarding can potentially be automated.

Alternatives Considered

Of the three, my first choice is Stripe (fast transfer of funds - 2 days, easy setup), Amazon Pay would be second choice (5-7 day transfer of funds, longer setup, more secure than Paypal which can and does freeze funds), Paypal (3-5 day transfer-sometimes longer, easy setup, and does freeze funds for random reasons).

We have many international clients and BlueSnap can process in many currencies, not just USD or CAD.

Return on Investment

  • Amazon Pay actually had fewer restrictions on what can and can't be sold, unlike some competitors that restricted sales of over the counter medications for a medical client. So it was an ideal solution.
  • Amazon Pay offers many customers a feeling of security just with the Amazon name.
