Amazon Pay is a digital payment service that allows customers to make payments on third-party merchant websites or applications using payment methods already associated with their Amazon account. While Amazon Pay Later is the most convenient way to acquire fast credit for purchases done via EMI on Amazon.in. Let’s discuss how the Amazon Pay Later works and how it is different from Amazon Pay.
On your Amazon App, you can quickly access Amazon Pay Later. Launch the Amazon App on your phone and open the menu by clicking on the three parallel lines button on the bottom of the Amazon app. Select Amazon Pay to open the related dashboard, and further click on Amazon Pay Later to access the same.
How Does Amazon Pay Later Work?
The pay later service offered by Amazon is the rebranded form of Amazon Pay EMI, that can be used within the Amazon ecosystem. It offers instant credit, via a completely digital process, for purchases using EMI on Amazon.in. After signing in, go to Amazon Pay and register for the service to use it. You should see an option to begin registration for the Amazon Pay Later service on this webpage. The e-KYC (Know Your Customer) process is pretty quick and easy for those who have already completed the KYC process for their Amazon Pay accounts. Others can still take advantage of it by simply uploading digital copies of their documents and verifying their PAN, Aadhaar, and phone number information.
As of now, the Amazon Pay Later service is only available to a select few individuals who have completed 23 years of age and have a credible credit bureau history. Amazon is taking steps to make it available to everybody in the near future.
Do you Need to Pay Interest?
Users of the Amazon Pay Later service will be able to pay off the entire balance due the next month. There will be no interest charged if you do this, and you will simply be repaying what you spent. If you spend more than Rs 3,000, though, you will be automatically eligible to repay it in three months. An amount of interest will be levied in this scenario.
How do I Complete Amazon Pay KYC?
Every user needs to complete the KYC for their Amazon Pay account to ensure the account credibility. It proves to the company that your account is genuine and you will not commit any fraud through them. The steps of completing your KYC are pretty simple and are listed below.

Can you use Amazon Pay on other third-party platforms? Is it accepted on all sites?
You can use your Amazon Pay Balance for payments on a number of third-party websites or applications. The process is simple and the same as the one used to pay on Amazon. The only condition is that the site or application should be accepting Amazon Pay as a reliable payment option. All you need to do is enter your registered Amazon account email address and the associated password. The only problem you may face in using this service is that this payment option is not acceptable on many platforms.
