Amazon Payments

Are you a part of the 278 million active global Amazon accounts? 

Consumers have many different types of payments in their pockets. Some of these, known as alternative methods of payments, tenders of wallets, have become a popular way for consumers to safely and quickly shop online. An alternative payment is often classified as a form of payment other than credit or debit card. Cardinal offers many alternative payment brand options that make it easy for consumers to pay the way they prefer, which increases merchant sales. One of these alternative payment brands is Amazon Payments.
