Amazon Payments allows you to use the payment methods that you already use on Amazon.com to pay for goods and services online wherever Amazon Payments is accepted.
With an Amazon Payments Account, you can make secure purchases from third-party (i.e. non-Amazon) websites that accept Amazon Payments, without having to re-enter your payment information. Also, there is no cost to you when you make a purchase using Amazon Payments. Amazon Payments keeps your financial information private from sellers, and you are not required to disclose your financial information stored in your Amazon.com account when you make a purchase.
If you already have an Amazon.com account, an Amazon Payments Account will be automatically created and activated when you accept the Amazon Payments User Agreement and make your first payment on any third-party website that accepts Amazon Payments. This account will be linked to your Amazon.com account, and you'll be able to use the credit cards associated with your Amazon.com account right away.
