Amazon Pay Defined
Amazon Pay is an online payments processing service used on thousands of e-commerce websites and platforms. Amazon launched the payment gateway back in 2007 based on the consumer base of Amazon.com. The solution allows users to pay with their Amazon accounts on external websites. Thus, Amazon pay offers a secure and convenient checkout solution for every e-commerce store.
Another important feature is that users can manage their external payments on Amazon.com. Amazon’s A-to-z Guarantee2 protects all purchases.
As for the possible problems associated with Amazon Pay running on a Shopware 6 website, they are usually caused by inappropriate extension configuration or a damaged template. Let’s see what these issues are and how to troubleshoot Amazon Pay in Shopware 6.
If you cannot see the Amazon Pay button on the frontend, you need to run through these steps of our Amazon Pay troubleshooting guide:
- First of all, check whether the Amazon Pay extension is installed and activated. Go to your Administration -> Settings -> System -> Plugins -> Amazon Pay. If the module is not installed, you should install it. If the extension is not enabled, turn it on.
- Also, it is necessary to verify whether Amazon Pay is used as a payment method on your Shopware 6 website. All payment methods are available in your administration under Settings -> Shop -> Payment methods. If the Amazon Pay payment method is disabled, turn it on.
- If the Amazon Pay extension is installed and enabled, it may not be available on a specific sales channel. Thus, you need to add Amazon Pay to the desired sales channel as a payment method. In your administration, proceed to the sales channel where the Amazon Pay button doesn’t display and check whether it has also been selected in payment types.
- Also, the Hide Amazon Pay Buttons option may be globally active. Shopware 6 offers this feature for checkout testing purposes. However, it may still be enabled on a production website. Therefore, check whether this function is deactivated in the Amazon Pay extension under Settings -> Plugins -> Amazon Pay. Turn it off if it is enabled.
- The Hide Amazon Pay Buttons option may be active for a particular sales channel. You can display the corresponding section by selecting each sales channel from the drop-down menu at the top of the Amazon Pay extension settings page. Deactivate this feature everywhere.
- Suppose the Amazon Pay button is still invisible on the product pages. In that case, you need to proceed to the Amazon Pay Button on Product Pages option in your administration under Settings -> Plugins -> Amazon Pay. Activate the feature to display the button on product pages.
The Amazon payment method still doesn’t work properly
Other common issues are associated with a damaged template. Basically, it causes two types of headaches. Firstly, an error occurs when clicking on the button to change the delivery address. Secondly, a customer experiences an error when clicking on the link to change the Amazon payment method. Therefore, you need to follow the official Shopware 6 guidelines to fix the broken template and address issues associated with Amazon Pay.
