Atomic Mall is thrilled to have partnered with Amazon.com in introducing their fantastic payment service to our site. Adding Amazon
Payments to your storefront will open up your store to millions of new potential buyers who feel safe using Amazon's proven and secure pay services.
It also allows them to use their pre-existing account information already stored at Amazon.com, meaning they won't be required to spend
extra time registering a new account when they decide to make a purchase. Seeing the recognizable Amazon logo on your product pages will
give your Buyers that crucial, extra level of confidence needed to finalize the sale!
Installing Amazon Payments into your Atomic Mall account requires a few
preliminary steps that, while not complicated, need to be executed carefully to ensure that Buyers will
be able to pay you successfully. If you don't already have an Amazon Payments account, you can sign up for free
Start by opening a Personal Account at Amazon Payments, and start the activation process by choosing "Send money online"
Complete your activation by verifying your email address and adding a credit card or bank account.
Once you've successfully created a Personal Account, upgrade to a Business Account
by clicking "Business" from your Account
home page, and then "Sign up Now" in the Amazon Simple Pay
box. This step is VERY IMPORTANT
, as you won't be able to accept
Amazon Payments without a Business Account.
When registering your Business Account, enter your Atomic Mall Storefront URL in the space for "My website"
After successfully activating your Business Account with Amazon Payments, take a deep breath...there is one step left.
You will need an Amazon Web Services Account. Go here to sign up:
and be sure to use the same login info
that you used for your Amazon Payments Account.
When this account is active, log into the main AWS account page, and click Your Account, then Security Credientials
in the upper right corner.
Scroll down to the Access Keys
section, and click "Show" under "Secret Access Key".
Keep this browser window open, as you will need both these numbers for insertion into your Atomic Mall account.
From your Atomic Mall Account page, select Store Settings > Payment Methods
to show your currently accepted payment services.
Click the Add/Update button
to bring up the secure Account ID Entry page.
Now go back to your Amazon Web Services page, and copy & paste the 20-digit Access Key ID
into your Atomic Mall
box for Amazon Payments. Then copy & paste the 40-digit Secret Access Key
into your Secret Key
When finished, click Enable
, then Return
If everything goes right, your Payment Methods box should now show the Amazon logo, and your product pages will proudly
display the same logo along with your other pay methods:
When you've completed all the steps outlined here, your Atomic Mall store will be ready to start taking Amazon
Payments. If you receive a payment notice from Amazon, but no order notice from Atomic Mall containing
details of the order, chances are you copied one or both of your data keys incorrectly. Remember that the shorter key (Access Key)
goes into the first box, and the longer key (Secret Key) goes into the second box. Also make sure your account type is Business
and not Personal.
Good luck and happy selling!
