    Using Amazon Pay with Sellerdeck Desktop

    Integration with Amazon Pay is included in Sellerdeck Desktop from v18.0.4 and v16.0.6.

    Adding Amazon Pay as a Payment Method will enable your customers to pay for their orders using their Amazon accounts.

    Customers who use Amazon Pay will bypass the main part of your checkout process, and pass through the Amazon checkout instead. After payment they will be returned to an order confirmation page on your site, and they will be sent your standard order confirmation email.

    IMPORTANT – Please note:

    1. Sellerdeck 2016 (v16) users may need to follow some additional steps to enable the integration. After following the steps below, please also refer to the additional Knowledge Base article:

    Using Amazon Pay with Sellerdeck 2016.

    2. Amazon requires that the Amazon Pay button appears on a secure page. Sellerdeck recommends that your whole site should be configured to use SSL, but SSL may be used for the checkout and login alone. In this case the button will not appear on the View Cart page.

    You will need a secure certificate installed on your server by your web host. Once installed, enable SSL for your website as follows:

    1. Select ‘Payment and Security’ from the Sellerdeck ‘Business Settings’ menu.
    2. Tick ‘Use SSL/TLS’ under ‘Payment Security’
    3. Select the option you wish to use – either ‘Whole Site’ (recommended) or ‘Checkout, Login and Account Details Pages Only’
    4. You may need to update your network settings
