Why Use Apple Pay On Amazon?

It’s just plain convenient to store all your payment methods in Apple Pay, ready to use whenever you please. Apple Pay stores and manages all your payment methods, from credit cards to debit cards to bank account numbers. This makes it easy to check out on Amazon after shopping. You won’t have to pull out your card from the purse and enter the numbers every time.

Faster checkout

Another reason to use Apple Pay on Amazon is you can check out quickly. You don’t have to enter your card details at checkout, even if you have memorized the details.

Apply Pay eliminates the need to carry your physical credit or debit cards. This way, you’re less likely to become a victim of identity theft.
