creativestyle GmbH has become an official partner of Amazon Payments and has created the ability to quickly and easily integrate the payment solution “Checkout by Amazon” in a Magento online store. The easiest way to integrate this payment solution is to integrate an existing extension. We have developed the official extension for Magento.

To integrate the extension “Checkout by Amazon”, retailers should first register with Amazon Payments and set up a “Checkout by Amazon” account (seller account). After verifying the data through Amazon Payments, the account is activated, and the integration of the extension can be started. We ship the extension together with a detailed documentation.
Currently the extension is in beta phase and is compatible for Magento online stores (versions 1.4, 1.5, 1.6) and the following system requirements: cURL for PHP DOM / XML for PHP as well as a valid SSL certificate. More upgrades and releases will be announced here.
