How Does Amazon Pay Work?

With Amazon Pay, shoppers do not have to leave a website or online fashion shopping mall in order to make payments. Shoppers are able to access their Amazon address book and Amazon payment methods via the widget that is installed on ecommerce shops such as Arttowngifts offering this payment method.
