Amazon card payment: How to pay your credit card in India
Posted On July 23, 2021
Amazon card payments are getting easier in India.
The country is the first to implement direct debit, a technology that allows consumers to pay for goods and services using their bank account number.
Amazon has also introduced card payments via mobile phones and by e-commerce portals, allowing customers to pay online.
Amazon card payments will be available from June 1.
The Indian government, however, has not yet issued a formal circular.
A person using a card to pay at a grocery store or a local eatery, for instance, will get a bill in their phone number.
A card can also be used at an ATM, bank, convenience store, hotel, airport, shopping mall or even a restaurant.
A person will need to have a valid e-wallet card or credit card to use this technology.
Amazon has also been offering card payments through mobile phones, including in India, to all its merchants.
Amazon India has about 3.5 million merchants and has an active merchant network of over 4 million merchants.
Amazon’s card payments service is available to users who have an Amazon Prime membership, Amazon Prime memberships and Amazon Alexa enabled devices.
The service will be offered in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam.
Users can use Amazon card to purchase Amazon Prime and other products at merchants in these countries.
Amazon said in December that the service would be available for customers in the U.S. by the end of June.
The new card system is a major milestone in the digital payments market, which is expected to generate $20 billion in revenue in 2021.
The card payments can be used for Amazon Prime, Kindle books, Amazon’s e-reader and other online goods, and at participating retailers, such as Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and Costco.
