3dcart, the shopping cart software provider, announced on Wednesday (Sept. 14) it is now part of Pay with Amazon’s new Global Partner Program.
As part of the program, quick checkout integration of Amazon Payments to 3dcart at stores worldwide is now available. The simple integration enables customers at independent online stores to pay using the information stored in their Amazon accounts. The service is available immediately. The company noted that more than 23 million registered Amazon customers have used their accounts on non-Amazon websites and that adding Pay with Amazon to an online store extends the ability to greater than 285 million Amazon customers.
To use Pay with Amazon, customers choose the products they want to buy, select “Login with Amazon” during the checkout process and sign into their Amazon accounts to use shipping addresses and payment methods associated with their accounts. The process saves customers time spent entering addresses and payment methods and increases their trust in the purchase and the store, it said.
“Every second it takes to enter a credit card number dramatically increases the chances a customer will abandon their purchase,” said 3dcart CEO Gonzalo Gil in a press release. “3dcart merchants need strong choices for combating cart abandonment. Accessing stored payment information from a trusted place online shaves off precious seconds, creating a better experience for customers and online merchants alike.”
According to 3dcart, the new payment option increases the likelihood that customers will purchase from an independent store since it boosts the merchant’s credibility because it accepts Pay with Amazon. What’s more, the company said it will eliminate some of the frustrations customers sometimes experience when checking out, particularly when using a mobile phone. Amazon Payments is one of more than a hundred payment options online merchants can add to their stores through 3dcart. Other popular payment integrations available through 3dcart include PayPal Credit, Visa Checkout, Allied Wallet and Worldpay, the company said.
