The Amazon Payments is a payment module for Shopp that integrates your Shopp storefront checkout to Amazon Flexible Payments provided by Amazon Web Services.
Amazon Flexible Payments Service™ (Amazon FPS) is the first payments service designed from the ground up for developers. It is built on top of Amazon’s reliable and scalable payments infrastructure and provides developers with a convenient way to charge Amazon’s tens of millions of customers (with their permission, of course!). Amazon customers can pay using the same login credentials, shipping address and payment information they already have on file with Amazon.
This way existing Amazon customers can also purchase from your Shopp storefront with ease.
