Amazon Pay Drop-in

Add Amazon Pay to an existing Drop-in integration.

Our Web Drop-in renders Amazon Pay in your payment form. When clicking the Amazon Pay button, the component redirects the shopper to an Amazon Pay hosted page where they select the details of the purchase before reviewing and confirming the order. This is supported from Web Drop-in 4.1.0.

Before you begin

This page explains how to add Amazon Pay to your existing Web Drop-in integration. The Web Drop-in integration works the same way for all payment methods. If you haven't done this integration yet, refer to our Drop-in integration guide.

Before starting your Amazon Pay integration make sure that you have set up your back end implementation, and added Drop-in to your payments form.

Get your PublicKeyId and give information to Adyen

Amazon Pay uses asymmetric encryption to secure communication. Therefore, you need a public/private key pair. To get this set up:

  1. Ask our Support Team to generate the key pair.
  2. Receive the public key from our Support Team.
  3. Send the public key to your Amazon Pay contact.
  4. Receive the publicKeyId from your Amazon Pay contact.
  5. Send the following to our Support Team:

    • Your merchant accounts to which you want to add Amazon Pay.
    • publicKeyId
    • amazonMerchantId: You can find this in your Amazon Seller Central or ask your Amazon Pay contact for it.
    • amazonStoreId: You can find this in your Amazon Seller Central or ask your Amazon Pay contact for it.

    We configure Amazon Pay for you after receiving your information.

Show Amazon Pay in your payment page

After you have finished configuring Amazon Pay, you can show the Amazon Pay button in your payment form:

  1. Make a /paymentMethods request with one of the supported combinations of countryCode and amount.currency.
  2. When creating an instance of Drop-in, make sure you're adding an amount object containing the currency and value of the payment, in minor units.

When the shopper clicks the Amazon Pay button, they are redirected to the Amazon website to log in and select the payment details.

  • Configure the appearance of the Amazon Pay button.
  • Change productType.
  • Include additional data, such as address and merchant metadata.

Here's an example of the Amazon Pay Drop-in configuration:

    .create('dropin', {
        // ...
        paymentMethodsConfiguration: {
            amazonpay: { // Optional configuration for Amazon Pay
                productType: 'PayAndShip',
                merchantMetadata: {
                    merchantReferenceId: 'Merchant-order-123',
                    merchantStoreName: 'MyStore',
                    noteToBuyer: 'Thank you for your order'
                amount: {
                    currency: 'EUR',
                    value: '1000'
                addressDetails: {
                    name: 'Simon Hopper',
                    addressLine1: 'Broadway 8-10',
                    city: 'London',
                    postalCode: 'SW1H 0BG',
                    countryCode: 'GB',
                    phoneNumber: '+44 203 936 4029'
                environment: 'test',
                returnUrl: ''

Handle the redirect and make a payment

When the shopper confirms the payment, they are redirected back to the returnUrl with the amazonCheckoutSessionId attached to the URL. Use the amazonCheckoutSessionId to create an instance of the Amazon Pay Component to make the actual payment.

  1. Create a DOM element for the Component, placing it where you want it to be rendered. At this point of the flow, the Component doesn't show anything. This page executes the logic of the payment and handles any additional shopper interaction. The Component uses this node, for example, in case a 3D Secure 2 challenge needs to be displayed.

    <div id="amazonpay_payment-container"></div>
  2. Define a handleOnSubmit function to be passed to the Component configuration object as a value for the onSubmit parameter. The function should accept the object from the Drop-in as an input, and trigger the backend function that you define, which executes the /payments API call.

    onSubmit: (state, component) => {
      // Merchant's function to make a payment
      return makePayment(
          .then(response => {
              if (response.action) {
                  // Handle additional action (3D Secure / redirect / other)
              } else {
                  // The merchant's function to show the final result or redirect to a final status page
          .catch(error => {
              // Handle error;
  3. Create an instance of the Amazon Pay Component and pass amazonCheckoutSessionId. Hide the Order button by setting showOrderButton to false. After the Component is mounted, trigger the submit function which should be defined in the Adyen Checkout constructor.

    const amazonPayComponent = checkout
      .create('amazonpay', {
          amazonCheckoutSessionId: '...',
          showOrderButton: false

This will call the onSubmit event, which contains a object. Use this object to make a /payments request and parse the result of the payment.

Handle the decline flow

In case of a credit card decline, due to card expiration or insufficient funds, you should redirect the shopper back to the Amazon Pay payment method selection page. You can do this by calling the handleDeclineFlow from the Amazon Pay Component.

This flow will allow you to Handle Authorization Declines as described in the Amazon Pay documentation.

onSubmit: async (state, component) => {
    try {
        const response = await makePayment(;
        // Check the result code
        if (response.resultCode && checkPaymentResponse(response.resultCode)) {
            // Show successful message
        } else {
            // Handle decline flow
    } catch (error) {
        // Fatal error
onError: (error) => {
    if (error.resultCode) {
        // Show payment failed message or start over the flow.
    } else {
        // Fatal error

Optional. Sign out from Amazon

After the transaction is finished, and the result is shown to the shopper, display a button to let them sign out from the Amazon account.

  1. Create a DOM element for the Sign out button, placing it where you want it to be rendered:

    <div id="amazonpay_signout"></div>
  2. Create an instance of the Amazon Pay Component and pass the amazonCheckoutSessionId along with showSignOutButton set to true.

    const amazonPayComponent = checkout
      .create('amazonpay', {
          amazonCheckoutSessionId: '...',
          showSignOutButton: true

Test and go live

To test Amazon Pay, you must follow the Amazon Pay testing guidelines.
You can check the status of an Amazon Pay test payment in your Customer Area > Transactions > Payments.

Before you can accept live Amazon Pay payments, you need to submit a request for Amazon Pay in your live Customer Area.
